  1. Abhi abhi to redmi 5 launch hua tha… Itni jaldi next version… P60 dena tha agar mediatek use kr rahe to…
    6a ok h sd425 se better h mtk a22…

  2. Bad days for xiaomi already started.

    Now they are removing IR blaster a unique feature which only xiaomi owns.

    No more special attractions in the mobile as compared to other brands.

      1. Ir Blaster, gyroscope , step counter, big battery and notification light with different colors are xiaomi trademark for even low budget devices.

        Xiaomi is removing all these features. Now tell me what unique features this brand is offering?

        1. Agree . mi price day by day increase and feature are remove . redmi note 4 have LED notification light with customization . and redmi note 5 or 5 pro have only white LED notification no customization . Earlier they provide widget for silent in 9.2 + version they remove that .

          1. True bro.. coz now Mi has gone public (stock market) has to get profits to increase share value and also lots of TV and offline AD commercials so they now putting the costs on device by cutting down features. Before they were no direct marketing and also they share the advantage with users by low cost. now not any more…. Correct me if i am wrong guys.

    1. I think yes ,both chipsets support dual volte, at present there are no dual volte chipsets in Qualcomm 400 series, and there is not much difference in performance between mediatek and Qualcomm, but redmi 6a is huge improvement over 5a , it has 12nm 2ghz quadcore chipset that support dual volte, compared to 5a with 28nm 1.4ghz quad core, mtk a22 is like a variant of helio p22 , with only some differences like a22 is quad core and p22 is octacore processor.
