Notebookcheck

The 6i’s camera takes good photos, storage space is plentiful and expandable, and the devices can take two SIM cards to boot. And most importantly the SoC performed admirably and without cause for concern.

The realme 6i really tries its best to offer the features that made the realme 5 a fan-favorite.

The realme 6i really tries its best to offer the features that made the realme 5 a fan-favorite. In some aspects, it even tried to one-up its predecessor by including new features that really matter to consumers. And I love what realme did this year: they offered fast-charging on their budget device and they even bundled a USB-C. Granted, there are some drawbacks to this device, but they are minor complaints that you won’t notice or can be remedied in future software updates.

The Realme 6i does better than the overwhelming majority of its budget counterparts. On the camera front, as long as there's adequate lighting, it's going to perform brilliantly. On performance for everything from the processor to the fingerprint scanner and display sensitivity or responsiveness, there were no hangups to speak of. All of that comes together as a handset that's well worth considering for any user.

A good budget phone

Realme delivered a solid budget smartphone that offers great gaming performance on the cheap. In a vacuum - it would have been a great deal. But the 6i is not alone on the market, worse, it's outmatched by its own siblings. Until a proper price adjustment happens, "this is not the Realme you are looking for".
