This budget handset is perfect for newcomers or casual smartphone users

from Know Your Mobile

The Redmi 6 is a fine purchase, despite the competition not only from other Chinese phone makers, but from Xiaomi's stable as well. It's running a solid OS, has great photographic prowess and can make it through an entire day with moderate use. Only the lack of waterproofing, NFC and fast-charging really count against it.

Good hardware at a starting price

 It has decent hardware for the price and it offers better performance than the smartphone it replaces. The base variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage offers better value and does not have a lot of competition to deal with.

When the Redmi 5 was on our desk a few months ago, the only improvements we wished was a high-resolution 1080p display and a larger battery. However, Xiaomi seems to have taken a detour from its evolution pattern. The only positives with the Redmi 6 are the dual rear camera with new bokeh effects and a new MediaTek chipset that isn’t as power hungry as other Snapdragon chips in this range.
