Great Feature Smartphone for An Affordable Price: Realme 6 Pro

ealme has had a history when it comes to frequent smartphone launches across various price segments. The company’s best offering in this segment includes the Realme 6 Pro — part of the Realme 6 series— which comes with some first-class features like 20x digital zoom. The smartphone also features Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G.

Design and Display

The display is bright and even in outdoor conditions, should not be much of an issue if you keep the brightness levels on the higher side. When it comes to colours, they are punchy and vibrant, except the deep blacks. The display, by default, leans towards the cooler side of the colour spectrum, which you can adjust in the settings.

There’s also 90Hz refresh rate support. Realme 6 Pro is among the very few smartphones in the price segment that offers a higher screen refresh rate option. Coupled with some software tricks for more fluid animations, 90Hz refresh rate does make the scrolling experience a bit smoother.

Fit and Finish

The ‘Lightning’ design is perhaps one of the best Realme designs and something that we have not seen in any other smartphone from the brand. The gradient rear panel comes in two colour options — Lightning Orange and our review unit in Lightning Blue. You’ll notice a shimmery and saturated ‘S’ shaped pattern like the lightning bolt which fades out to darker hues of blue as you tilt the smartphone to different angles.

Camera

Realme 6 Pro has six cameras — four on the back and two inside the pill-shaped punch-hole.

The primary 64MP sensor uses pixel-binning to generate 16MP images. In daylight conditions, you will absolutely have no issues as the images are vibrant, sharp and you get a good amount of details. The ultra-wide shots, although good, bump up the shadows. Do not expect a lot of details, especially around the corner of the frame as you will notice some smoothening while
trying to reduce noise.

Low-light shots were decent but what surprised us what Night mode. We clicked a couple of shots wherein the software tried to get the best result but introduced noise and overexposed the highlights. After using the dedicated Night Mode, the output was significantly better for the price.

Performance and Software

Realme 6 Pro gets powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor. The processor is paired with Adreno 618 for handling graphics and also comes with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 internal storage. The new processor has similar benchmark numbers to the
Snapdragon 730G and MediaTek Helio G90T.

Realme claims that the 4,300 mAh battery can be charged from zero to 50 percent in 20 minutes using the 30W VOOC 3.0 fast charger. The claim is true in most cases and the best time during our review period was 19 minutes. The remaining 50 percent was charged within the next 45 minutes on average.

Final Verdict

So should you buy the Realme 6 Pro? We would say, yes. The smartphone ticks the right boxes that make it eligible to be called a value-for-money smartphone.

Opinions over the design may be subjective — some may call it flashy while the rest like us would call it one of the best-looking smartphones in the price range.
