Redmi 6A is the successor to the popular Redmi 5A. It was launched in June 2018, and has a surprisingly good battery life. It is extremely affordable and contains good features. It also has a few drawbacks, which you will read about further. In this Redmi 6A review, let us explore all the Redmi 6A specs and features in detail:

Here are the key specifications & features for Redmi 6A review:

  1. Overview

Xiaomi Redmi 6A is a one of the most affordable smartphones by Xiaomi. It is priced at a very affordable INR 6,299. It has a strong build, good battery and a good look, and is overall a good entry-level phone. But it has many drawbacks, such as its poor RAM and sluggish functioning.

  1. Design

Redmi 6A has a tall display with a metal design that looks expensive. It is slightly bigger than the Redmi 5A. It is compact and is easy to hold. The speakers are placed at the back, which is not the right place because it stifles the sound one holds it from the back and watches something in landscape mode. Moreover, the buttons on this phone are not reliable and have received user complaints over the years.

  1. Display

This phone has a 5.45-inch IPS LCD display with a 720 x 1440 pixel resolution. It has a good 18:9 display, but the pixel density is only 295 PPI, which comparatively low. However, the phone compensates that with good brightness and screen functionality.

  1. Camera

Redmi 6A has a 13MP primary camera along with a 5MP front camera. It is good in sufficient lighting, but the colours are not too crisp. Moreover, the camera app is quite sluggish.

  1. Performance

This phone has the MediaTek Helio A22 processor, which is efficient. However, with its 2GB RAM, it is not enough to enable multitasking and has a sluggish performance.

  1. Operating System

Redmi 6A operates on the Android 8.1 Oreo, which is based on the MIUI 9.6. However, the experience is not satisfactory as the UI has lags and the operations are not glitch-free.

  1. Storage

This phone has a low internal storage, and is available in two variants – 16GB and 32GB; which is poor and very insufficient.

  1. Battery

This phone has a 3000 mAh battery that is surprisingly efficient. It has a good battery backup, which makes up for its lack of a better RAM and processing. However, it does not have the fast-charging feature, which is available in the same price range in its successor, the Redmi 7A.

  1. Connectivity

It comes with the standard smartphone connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Radio and USB.

  1. Sensors & Features

This phone contains the accelerometer, proximity, and compass sensors.

Verdict
