The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, despite being a reliable device, isn't the best smartphone in the mid-range segment anymore. Xiaomi frankly borrowed a leaf out of OnePlus' book and refined the popular Redmi Note 5 Pro, and didn't really upgrade it. And in the mid-range segment where loyalties shift wit...

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is the successor to the Redmi Note 5 Pro and has a few upgrades over the model it replaces. The notched display on the Redmi Note 6 Pro is bigger and brighter, and the cameras have also been upgraded, which does result in better output.

A step forward, but not a giant leap

If you are not tempted by the notch (we will not judge you – people are!) or slightly better cameras are not your priority (again, no judgment), then staying with the Redmi Note 5 Pro might even make sense. The Note 6 Pro adds a few touches to the Note 5 Pro, but it does not attempt to fix it. Because it was never broken anyway.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, despite being a reliable device, isn't the best smartphone in the mid-range segment anymore. Xiaomi frankly borrowed a leaf out of OnePlus' book and refined the popular Redmi Note 5 Pro, and didn't really upgrade it. And in the mid-range segment where loyalties shift with a bump in megapixels or RAM, the Redmi Note 6 Pro could be threatened by other, more powerful devices in that category.

An all-rounder smartphone on a cost-effective budget

from Deccan Chronicle

The Redmi Note 6 Pro can be stated as yet another great offering for the price. It offers a large FHD+ 19:9 notched display, punchy panel, pretty powerful chip, four cameras and great battery life, making it a good deal. However, the smartphone offers the same old design and hardware as on the Note 5 Pro.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro isn’t really a ground-breaking device. Think of it as the natural evolution of the Redmi Note 5 Pro. There are refinements all around and a few changes to catch up with current trends. While we wish that the company got a bit more aggressive about bringing the fight to their competitors, Xiaomi knows that their bread and butter is through value pricing.

Camera and battery life are the only saving grace

from Firstpost

The Redmi Note 6 Pro certainly does not boast of the best hardware at the price. The ageing Snapdragon 636 chipset, the dull repetitive design and the lack of higher storage variants really do hurt its standing on the specs sheet. But it’s the camera alone that makes the phone worth buying.

Even if the differences to the predecessor turn out to be small, Xiaomi has made the right adjustments. The blue tint we criticized in the predecessor is not there anymore in the newest Redmi sprout, but instead the built-in IPS panel is the showpiece of the affordable mid-range smartphone. Thanks to great color reproduction and a good brightness, the liquid crystal display in the Redmi Note 6 Pro is really fun to look at. In addition, the built-in cameras and the very good battery life are also convincing.
