Xiaomi today launched the Redmi Note 6 Pro in India, this handset is successor to the Redmi Note 5 Pro and in fact using the same hardware i.e. the Snapdragon 636. Redmi Note 6 Pro price in India is from Rs. 13,999 is it worth the price, find out.

Redmi Note 6 Pro 4GB/64GB is Rs. 13,999 but tomorrow on Flipkart for just one day you can get for Rs. 12,999.

The 6GB /64GB is Rs. 15,999 and tomorrow for one day special price is Rs. 14,999.

When you compare Redmi Note 5 Pro with Redmi Note 6 Pro they may look similar but there are some design changes and the Note 6 Pro looks much better, feels more comfortable to hold and use. Screen is bigger on Note 6 Pro and screen is also gorilla glass protected.

Performance is pretty good; you can play PUBG on this handset. The MIUI 10 looks great and works really smooth. I got Antutu score of about 114K, check the video review and also watch PUGB gameplay action.

Camera quality is excellent though there are some minor issues and that can be fixed via software updates. Handset can shoot FHD videos, slow-mo and time lapse.

Verdict

Those who had already bought / using the Redmi Note 5 Pro, may not want to upgrade but there is no doubt that the Redmi Note 5 Pro is still the best handset for the price out there, and no doubt the Redmi Note 6 Pro will also be at par.

What we need to see if any Brand comes up with a Smartphone that will beat the Redmi Note 5 pro / Redmi Note 6 Pro?

  3. Hi GOgi…i have question that why this phone is not having high frame rate option in pubg mobile….My redmi note 4 is having that option…..
    Is it a glitch?

    1. Ultra frames options *45 fps are only available for sd 835 and 845 even they don’t have extreme 60* frame rates options. For sd 600 series max frames are locked @30fps. This is done by pubg developers so its not a glitch. You can use gfx tool from playstore, no root required and you won’t be banned. You can edit all kind of graphics settings from there
      Even 60fps option

  5. A Very Good Device For Normal User and who want To buy First Phone In This Range .

    But Existences note 5 User and Who want to buy Value for money phone With Good Gaming Phone This Is Not Good.

    Asus M2 maybe Give This phone a Hard Competition.

  6. Looks like now Xiaomi has only started concentrating on advertisements. This just looks like the Redmi note 5 Pro with an added notch

  9. Not much of an upgrade from RN5 pro. It seems xiaomi days is over soon. Realme already beating Redmi by providing better product with design/ specifications in budget segments. Now people have choice over Redmi. Waiting for Real me U1.

    1. Xiaomi is more reliable (and established) brand, and provides better after sells support than Realme.

      1. are you sure ???? AFAIK Xiaomi service sucks…. all of these phones are mostly use n throw types.
        there is no real difference between going for Xiaomi or Realme in terms of service.

  10. Not much upgrade from RN 5 pro. It seems xiaomi days is over soon. Realme is already beating Redmi in budget segment with better options. Now customers has a choice.

  11. Gogi sir, please confirm regarding Note 6 pro design/build
    Is it Metal body or Plastic body? Thanks in advance.

    1. Have you used realme2Pro. I was not able to use more than 1month that is what horrible experience I am having. Iam selling at the loss of 3 ,000 within a month. Worst ever decision I have taken. Very slow in processing and touch is not much responsive. It is only a dew drop display expect this nothing is exciting .

      1. Must have defective product. My Realme is working flawlessly. Enjoying dew drop wide screen with pub g in HD graphics.

  12. Looking forward to Realmi U1 with SD660, perhaps might just be better in some aspects. But big war going on in mid range space, good for consumers.

    1. It has already been disclosed that Realme U1 will have Mediatek P70. For SD660 go for Realme 2 Pro.
