Realme 6 Pro
Realme launched the two budget devices and we have discussed the smaller brother Realme 6. Now we will be evaluating the Realme 6 Pro and let’s see what it has to offer. This is the first phone to feature a Snapdragon 720G processor.
The Realme 6 has proven to offer excellent value for money, with premium features such as a 90Hz display, a powerful processor, and a 64-megapixel main camera. The 6 Pro, which we’ll be reviewing today, starts at a slightly higher price but you get the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC, a secondary wide-angle front camera, a telephoto rear camera, and some additional software features.
The 6.6-inch hole-punch display on the Realme 6 Pro has a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels, with a 90.6% screen-to-body ratio and an aspect ratio of 20:9. While the Redmi Note 9 Pro also features a similar display, albeit with a hole-punch cutout in the center, what sets the Realme 6 Pro apart is the higher 90Hz high refresh rate support. In this regard, the POCO X2 takes things up a notch and offers a 120Hz high refresh rate display, which is one major reason why some would pick it over the 6 Pro.
The Realme 6 Pro has a similar rear camera setup to the Realme 6, but with the depth camera swapped for a telephoto camera. There’s a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 2X optical zoom, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. In the front, we have a 16-megapixel primary camera and a second 8-megapixel wide-angle camera.
Photos captured by the telephoto camera were decent too. The Realme 6 Pro boasts of up to 20X hybrid zoom, but we noticed that after about 5X, objects began to lose their sharpness rather quickly. The HDR was also working good In low light, the primary camera is pretty capable and manages a fair bit of detail with good colors. Thankfully, you can use Night mode with all three sensors, which offers brighter pictures with slightly better details.
Snapdragon 720G chipset on the device is not faster than the MediaTek Helio G90T seen on the Realme 6. Running the AnTuTu benchmarks on both the device actually shows a score of 280,670 points for the 6 Pro as compared to 291,210 for the Realme 6. In the run of things, the real-world performance for both the devices is going to be more or less the same, which leads me to believe that Realme 6 Pro is not tilting towards performance to make its mark. All apps thrown at the phone run with ease and the 8GB RAM variant keeps the apps open for a long time. Running graphical intensive tasks happens to be a specialty of the Snapdragon 720G and as such there was little to no lag while playing PUBG Mobile on the highest settings. Of course, these settings were locked at only High for both graphics and frame rate instead of Extreme due to hardware limitations.
Realme 6 Pro also comes equipped with a 4300mAh battery and a 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 (5V/6A) adapter bundled in the box. The company says that you can juice up close to 70% of your battery in 30 minutes, which sounds great at this price point. And again switching it to 60Hz will save your battery although you can expect a one-day usage.
Realme 6 Pro is an overall great phone although for gaming stuff the Realme 6 has better benchmark scores. I also liked the Realme 6 more as it is under 15000 and offers such great specs. If you are looking for heavy gaming the Liquid Cooling and 120Hz of POCO X2 will help more. Totally your taste of software is also important. I will recommend Realme 6 Pro and is a must-have alongside the POCO X2.
