Here is the review of Redmi 6, if you may recall Xiaomi had launched 3 handsets in the Redmi 6 series, I have done the Redmi 6A review, Redmi 6 Pro review and now here is the Redmi 6 review. This handset price starts from Rs. 7,999.

Inside the box you will get the handset, user manual warranty card, data cable (USB – Micro USB) and travel charger 5V/1A. Earphone and protective case is not included in the box packing.

Redmi 6 looks great for the price, it has that typical Redmi look. Curvy body, metallic finishing and handset feels good to hold and use.

Redmi 6 Performance

The MediaTek Helio P22 Octa core chipset does a decent job. Antutu score is around 75,000. The hardware can play games like PUBG in low graphics quality mode. Hardware does not heat up much. For normal usage and for a bit of gaming the hardware is good enough.

There is face unlock and finger print sensor, both security features are fast and accurate.

Redmi 6 Camera

There are dual cameras on the back and for the price of Rs. 7,999 (3GB/32GB) the rear camera quality in bokeh mode is pretty impressive, perfect bokeh and impressive edge detection. Front camera too does a really good job.

This handset can shoot FHD videos and slow motion, there is image stabilization too. Low light shots turn out okay, not that great or that bad. Overall the Redmi 6 camera quality is above average.

Battery performance

The 3000 mAh battery takes about 2 hours 15 minutes or so for a full charge using 5V/1A charger and on a full charge you can expect about one to one and a half day of mixed usage based on your usage pattern.


The Redmi 6 is an affordable budget friendly smartphone that comes with 18:9 display and houses dual cameras on the rear that are not just for name sake but they are capable of capturing impressive shots. Overall for the price the Redmi 6 looks great, perfect to use as a backup phone or if you have a tight budget this one is a great option.
