Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro Review

Our Verdict

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, notwithstanding being a dependable gadget, isn’t the best cell phone in the mid-extend fragment any longer. Xiaomi honestly acquired a leaf out of OnePlus’ book and refined the famous Redmi Note 5 Pro, and didn’t generally update it. Furthermore, in the mid-extend portion where loyalties crap with a knock in megapixels or RAM, the Redmi Note 6 Pro could be undermined by other, all the more amazing gadgets in that class. Read on to discover why.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Detailed Review – “Geeky Techzone”

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro comes only eight months after the dispatch of its antecedent, the Redmi Note 5 Pro. In an ongoing IDC report, Xiaomi stayed in best of the Indian cell phone showcase and developed by a surprising 27 percent. The main drivers of the development were the reasonable Redmi 5A and the Redmi Note 5 Pro. At the point when the Note 5 Pro propelled back in February 2018, it set a benchmark for execution in the mid-run section by presenting the Snapdragon 636 nearby 6 gigs of RAM. No big surprise it sold like hot cakes.

With the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, Xiaomi has accomplished something that OnePlus is known to do. Xiaomi invigorated its smash hit offering in a limited ability to focus time, enhancing the ease of use with new programming based highlights, while forgetting a prominent equipment update. While that has worked out well for OnePlus so far in the top of the line section, the mid-extend class is an entire diverse story. With any semblance of the Realme 2 Pro, the Moto One Power, and Xiaomi’s own Mi A2 for an organization in that fragment, the Redmi Note 6 Pro has an extreme street ahead to wonder.

Will its development, the Redmi Note 6 Pro satisfy a similar publicity? All the more essential, is it still the superior worker? How about we discover.


The Redmi Note 6 Pro is fundamentally the old Note 5 Pro, yet with a score cut-out in the showcase. As revolting as the score looks, Xiaomi surrendered to the developing interest of a bigger, bezel-less presentation and the intent was the best way to give the general population what they needed. It doesn’t generally help things here as the score is fairly wide and offers little space on either side for symbols and notices. It’s additionally very bothersome and declines to go in case you’re playing a diversion like PubG except if you physically turn it off. The score is available while you’re perusing an article and yet not when you’re viewing a video on YouTube.

Hi indent, my old companion!

Xiaomi’s structure logic was once valued and even replicated over the section. One of the essential defenders of the metal-body plan in the value goes, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note arrangement promoted the structure prompts that are currently present in all Xiaomi telephones in the financial plan and mid-run section. The organization experiments with different materials like clay in its leader items and even kevlar as it did in the Poco F1. I can securely say the metal body configuration currently looks plain exhausting. Hell, it’s presently hard to reveal to one Xiaomi telephone separated from the other in case you’re taking a gander at them from the back. In spite of that, one needs to concede that these metal-bodied telephones are any day more strong than your glass-sandwich ones despite the fact that the last look a whole lot better. You’re in any case going to slap a case on it and if that is the situation, there’s no point getting Xiaomi out for utilizing a common plan if it’s made to last. In any case, at that point, the Redmi Note 5 Pro unit we had gotten for audit, doesn’t work such well at this point. The power catch on the correct should be squeezed harder to have it enlist. Ideally, the Redmi Note 6 Pro has better inward development and sturdiness.

While there’s not really any significant distinction in the plan of the Redmi Note 6 Pro, Xiaomi introduced somewhat bent edges on the back, with sides that swell out from the body. It helps in grasping the telephone better. The adjusted corners likewise don’t give the telephone a chance to delve into the palm. The double camera unit on the back is adjusted vertically on the upper left corner with the unique mark sensor found midway, right where the forefinger can reach. The Redmi Note 6 Pro likewise shaved off the bezels from beneath, however just by a hair and except if you’re looking at the Note 6 Pro against the Note 5 Pro one next to the other, there’s no real way to tell. It’s a significant huge bezel however and telephones like the Honor 8X are sincerely a superior option if a bezel-less showcase is what you’re searching for in a telephone.

I have blended emotions about the Redmi Note 6 Pro’s plan. At the fag year’s end, in the wake of utilizing a group of Xiaomi gadgets that appear to be identical, I’ve become worn out on the emphasis. In any case, it’s sturdy and can take a larger number of scratches and knocks than a glass-bodied telephone, and that ought to be a need in the mid-run fragment.


This is the place the Redmi Note 6 Pro essentially contrasts from the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The Note 6 Pro games a bigger 6.26-inch show that has an appalling score to finish everything, which is the manner by which Xiaomi expanded the screening estimate without expanding the impression of the telephone. Be that as it may, the majority of the additional screen land is eaten up by the score itself, and there’s not really any space for the symbols and warnings. The telephone offers the choice to kill the score, yet you need to do it physically by whitelisting applications. Recordings are removed in 16:9 angle proportion of course and in applications like YouTube you can extend it to 18:9 viewpoint proportion, yet there will at present be space left unused. The intent, similar to we has made reference to incalculable occasions, fills no need at all, and should simply go.

Aside from that, the board on the Redmi Note 6 Pro is of a higher quality than it’s ancestor. While the brilliance levels are pretty much the equivalent (500 lux), hues are more energetic and fresh on this one. The telephone likewise offers alternatives to change the white parity and shading temperature, yet on the off chance that you don’t recognize what you’re doing, it’s smarter to keep up the default settings.

Execution and Software

This is the place there’s not really any distinction in the middle of the Redmi Note 6 Pro and its ancestor. All other Redmi Note telephones have beaten their individual ancestors in both benchmark tests and in true use, however not this one. The Redmi Note 6 Pro depends on a similar Snapdragon 636 SoC combined with either 4GB or 6GB RAM, alongside 64GB capacity. While the equipment setup excited us at the start of the year, before the finish of 2018, it has turned into the standard. The Snapdragon 636, with its eight Kryo 260 centers timed at 1.8GHz, is presently maturing rapidly even with the Snapdragon 660 and the Kirin 710 being offered in a similar cost. The benchmark reports confirm that.

On AnTuTu, the Redmi Note 6 Pro scored 116046 against the Redmi Note 5 Pro’s 112652, while the Realme 2 Pro with a Snapdragon 660 outscored them two with 128430 and the Mi A2 bested even that score with 128895. With comparable value focuses, it turns into a simple decision in case you’re searching for the best execution. On Geekbench Single Core and Multi-Core tests that put the CPU abilities to test, the Redmi Note 6 Pro scored 1632 and 3233 individually. The scores are by and by in accordance with the Redmi Note 5 Pro and the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and here once more, the Realme 2 Pro and the Mi A2 outflanked the Note 6 Pro with essentially higher scores. Indeed, even on 3DMark Slingshot, which tests the illustrations handling capacities of a gadget, the scores are comparable for both the Redmi Note 6 Pro and it’s forerunner while the Mi A2 and the Realme 2 Pro outscored it by a long edge.

In view of the execution benchmark scores, it’s anything but difficult to see that the Redmi Note 6 Pro isn’t the best Xiaomi brings to the table in that cost. The Mi A2, with the Snapdragon 660 SoC and Android One-confirmed stock Android UI is the thing that we would suggest, however in case you’re hitched to the MIUI biological system, the Redmi Note 6 Pro is your next best alternative.

In certifiable use, the distinction in execution isn’t too much. The telephone runs MIUI 10 out of the crate and it’s advanced splendidly for the telephone. I didn’t confront any slack or falter while opening applications or perusing the web. In any case, the MIUI 10 interface on this telephone depends on Android 8.1 Oreo and not the most recent Android variant. The new refresh brings motion based route and another ongoing applications menu which is more card-based and masterminded vertically. There’s help for autofill now, and another application administration framework in Settings. More than that, MIUI feels quick and smart with speedy liveliness. The telephone likewise boots rapidly in around 30 seconds and applications dispatch somewhat quicker than the Note 5 Pro.

PubG Mobile is playable on this telephone

Gaming on the Redmi Note 6 Pro isn’t the best involvement. Most diversions will run despite the fact that the graphically-requesting ones must be played in low or medium settings. We played PubG Mobile on the Redmi Note 6 Pro with GameBench connected, and it recorded a steady FPS of 25. On leads like the OnePlus 6T, you get around 40 FPS. While FPS consider isn’t much as what leaders offer, you do get steady interactivity with a fluctuation list of 1 FPS on a normal crosswise over five sessions we tried.

It’s implied that despite the fact that this isn’t the quickest telephone in the mid-go section using any and all means, it’s genuinely dependable and practical and won’t disappoint you.


The Redmi Note 6 Pro while not offering any updates in crude execution, raises the stakes with regards to imaging. The telephone’s double camera unit at the back is better because of a greater sensor with bigger 1.4um pixels and a more extensive f/1.9 opening when contrasted with that on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. On the front, inside that terrible indent are two sensors also for selfies. The auxiliary sensor, similar to that on the back, is utilized for ascertaining the profundity of the field.
