The Xiaomi Redmi 6A isn't going to floor you with its performance or features, but everything here seems to work well. Considering the price, you'll likely be happy with what the Redmia 6A can do and it keeps pace with other budget alternatives.

The Redmi 6A is a fairly good update to the Redmi 5A, which itself was barely any different compared to the Redmi 4A. You now get a tall screen, better processor, and improved polish overall.

The Redmi 6A is a pretty good deal if you are hunting for a smartphone that won’t bother your wallet. For entry-level smartphone users, the 6A is a considerable upgrade over the Redmi 5A, especially with a bigger display and a more powerful chipset.

The camera is suited for simple snapshots, and users who are looking for an affordable second phone do not have to live without the dual-SIM function, even if they are using a micro SD card.
