Realme 6

Realme has launched the two models in the budget category the Realme 6 & Realme 6 Pro. Realme has gained huge popularity in India and is offering some really great devices alongside giving them a new user interface i.e. Realme UI. Now let us talk about the Realme 6 first.

Starting off with the design, the company has taken inspiration from comets to offer you two stunning colors. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, physical fingerprint sensor-cum-power button, and a lot more.

Realme 6 has been priced at Rs. 13,999 for the 4GB+64GB base variant but you are required to shell out Rs. 15,999 for the 6GB+128GB variant and Rs. 16,999 for the high-end 8GB+128GB variant.

Display

Realme has upgraded the display from a 6.3-inch FHD+ waterdrop screen on the Realme 5 Pro to a 6.5-inch FHD+ (1,080 x 2,400) punch-hole display on the Realme 6. It has also increased the refresh rate from 60Hz to 90Hz, which is quite impressive given the price of the phone. In fact, the Realme 6 is the cheapest phone right now to offer a 90Hz LCD display. The high refresh rate means the scrolling experience is going to be smoother. And honestly, this makes the budget phone feel faster and more responsive than what you would typically find on a smartphone with a 60Hz screen.This is a really good thing to have a high refresh rate makes the difference in gaming and day to day usage as well.

Camera

As far as the cameras are concerned, the Realme 6 on the rear packs a 64-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture; a second 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.3 aperture; a third 2-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a fourth 2-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture. The rear camera setup has autofocus. It sports a 16-megapixel camera on the front for selfies, with an f/2.0 aperture. . The Ultra Macro, Expert, Slo-mo and other options are tucked away under the ‘More’ section. On the top of the viewfinder, you’ll have options to enable HDR, Chroma Boost, flash and so on. Daylight photos captured using the main camera often deliver bright and vibrant photos with HDR and Chroma Boost enabled. Colors can sometimes look too unnaturally saturated with Chroma Boost, and you will be able to capture more natural-looking colors with the feature turned off. Be default, the main camera shoots in 16MP resolution and uses pixel binning to make photos look brighter and clearer with good contrast. You can easily switch to the 64MP raw camera, which is best used in daylight conditions if you’re looking for extremely detailed photos.

Performance

Realme 6 is powered by a 2.05GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio G90T processor. The Helio G90T is a gaming processor that delivers a smooth, lag-free gaming experience and snappy day-to-day usage. Realme 6 base variant starts at 4GB RAM and goes up to 8GB RAM. Helio G90T blows away the Snapdragon 665 SoC that powered the Realme 5. Games like PUBG and Call of Duty: Mobile on default high graphics and the experience was generally great. These games ran extremely smoothly with no lags or stutters. Even after cranking up the graphics to extreme settings, the Realme 6 delivered a consistently smooth experience, but we did notice the phone get quite warm during gameplay.

Battery

Realme 6 gets a bigger 4,300mAh capacity. The battery life of the Realme 6 will vary depending on the refresh rate. It gets affected when using the higher 90Hz refresh rate. So turning to 60Hz will help you save the battery.

Overall Verdict

This device is best in the category and everyone who likes these features and wants a good gaming phone at this price point should get this device we recommend this device and is a must-have. You can opt for this if you are looking for something under 15000 INR. The prices are definitely higher than the Redmi Note 9 series but looking at the upgrades this is totally worth it.
