  3. why all are confusing redmi 6 pro with redmi note 6 pro ,bhailog ye redmi 6 pro hai redmi 5 ka upgrade jo 5.7 inch hd plus screen ke saath aata tha.

  4. Massive downgrade.. I was looking forward to buy note 6 pro but now after seeing specs i will stick to note 5 pro.

      1. Ohh my mistake.. but still in this competitive market we have a way lot better option at similar pricing

  5. Considering SD625 is two year old..and 3gb/32gb are replacing 2gb/16gb models.. price of this phone should have benn kept 9k and 11k for better sell response

  6. Redmi 6A is an interesting upgrade to Redmi 5A, but the big issue will be Flash sales and scarce availability.

    1. Meanwhile the price competitor to the redmi 6a is the samsung galaxy j2 pro which i am sure will sell huge due to its ready availability in spite of being a degrade in terms of storage, ram, resolution.

  7. Hadd hoti hai downgrade ki. Removed front LED Flash, IR Blaster, Metal Built, Improper old style placement of Speaker. Sooner or later MI will no more be No.1 in Indian market.

  8. Well, Redmi 6 looks very bad. I wish I had availed the offer of Rs 750 off on Realme 2 and got that. I just hate those bezels on the side of this Dibba. Hadd Hoti hai Bhai. Poco F1 6 + 128 GB was available till 2 pm. Looks like people understand that build quality is much important aspect than other bells and whistles. Nice to see plastic back phones with no special patterns, though metal or glass is better, facing tough competition in this market.
