Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro review: 6.26-inch mid-range smartphone

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Design

Perhaps the only innovation that involuntarily attracts attention is the appearance of a monobrow. This is not a surprise since Xiaomi represents all the new products with cut-out screens. Due to this, the manufacturer managed to increase the size of the display by 0.27 inch. And at the same time preserve the dimensions of the previous model.

Almost the entire face of the smartphone takes a 6.26-inch IPS screen with a ratio of 19: 9. From below we see a massive “chin”. In the “Notch” hidden sensors, two front cameras, and a hearing aid.

There are almost no changes at the back. It’s the same Redmi Note 6 phone with a metal cover, on top and bottom of which there are plastic patches for the output of antennas, only more rounded in the corners. But after all, we all hoped that we would be rid of plastic this year.

The fingerprint reader is in the middle of the upper part. The double block of cameras is oriented vertically. At the same time, it is a little strange that the camera lenses slightly, but stick out of the case, however, like the more expensive models.

The key to controlling the volume is on the right, next to it is the lock button. Tray for a sim card and memory cards the creators determined on the opposite side. Speaker – from the bottom, and to the left of it – a port for charging the format Micro USB, audio jack and talking speaker.

The case of the model is made of metal, the display received a protective glass Gorilla Glass, without specifying about its version.

Dimensions of the smartphone are length 157.9 mm, width 76.38 mm and thickness 8.2 mm.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro can be bought in four colors: black, blue, pink-gold and red.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Display

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is equipped with a 6.26-inch IPS-display with a resolution of Full HD + (2280 × 1080 pixels). The display has a 19: 9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 403 PPI.

The matrix is the same as that of its predecessor. Recall that it is good in all respects. There are no complaints to the viewing angles.
Maximum brightness is enough for comfortable viewing of content from the screen on a sunny day.

We hope that the minimum threshold will be slightly reduced since reading at night with Redmi Note 5 Pro was not always comfortable for the eyes.
Color rendering is neutral, but the white balance may differ depending on the particular device, as in Xiaomi this is often found.

In the settings, there is a mode of protection of vision, as well as color adjustment.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Performance

Under the hood processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 with a graphics chip Adreno 509. The same processor has Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Here it is, the main disappointment. As everyone was waiting for Snapdragon 660, Xiaomi preferred to save and equip the gadget with a 14-nanometer 8-core Snapdragon 636 processor, which was the heart of Redmi Note 5. It has 4 Kryo 260 Silver × 1.6 GHz cores + 4 Kryo 260 Gold × 1.8 GHz, graphics subsystem Adreno 509.

The novelty is available with two combinations of memory: 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory and 4 GB of RAM + 64 GB of flash memory. The built-in memory can be expanded to 256 GB using a microSD card, but for this, you will have to sacrifice one of the SIM-cards since the tray is a hybrid one.

This SoC is able to give a smooth picture in heavy games on average graphics parameters, sometimes even on high. But it is noticeably inferior in power GPU chipset Snapdragon 660. The processor power is also lower, but not much. It’s really sad that the company did not take a step forward and did not update the processor in one of the most anticipated models of this year.

The novelty comes immediately from MIUI 10 on board, which is built on the basis of Android 8.1. Soon after the release will be available and the version of Android 9.0.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Camera

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro has four cameras. But the rear will not differ from those that are presented in the model six months ago. The main module is there from Samsung S5K2L2 with a resolution of 12 MP with an aperture of 1.4 μm. The auxiliary sensor S5K5E8 has a resolution of 5 MP and is needed only for blurring the background. There is support for phase autofocus, which instantly works, there is no optical stabilization.

The parameters of the main sensor are stunning for this price since it is able to create detailed frames even in low light. The main thing is for the Chinese to do the software, as it should. Otherwise, the camera is good, the daytime dynamic range is wide, the sharpness is high, the white balance is natural. There is an “AI” mode, where the pictures are subjected to post-processing of artificial intelligence, and sometimes it gives excellent results.

The front camera is new. The main sensor is Sony IMX376 with a resolution of 20 MP, and a secondary sensor is 2 MP. We expect a slight increase in the quality of the photo and a more accurate operation of the “Bokeh” function for the front camera. We remind you that there are different parameters and filters for creating creative selfies.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Battery

Redmi Note 6 Pro is equipped with a non-removable lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh. Redmi Note 6 Pro worked with the same battery from 9 to 12 hours of screen activity at an average load (social networks, messengers, a few games, a browser, music). Here though the screen has increased, it is insignificant, therefore loss of autonomy will make a maximum of half an hour.

There is no data on fast charging yet. Recall that in Note 5, it was limited to Quick Charge 2.0, the kit did not put a charger with more power. We hope that in Redmi Note 6 unlock QC 3.0, which will promptly replenish the battery.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Price

Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro in the global version is already available in the store Aliexpress.
