Realme 6 has not swayed away from its theme and continues to compete in the mid-range segment. Realme lineup is known to be budget-friendly while providing an above-average experience in terms of usage.

Realme 6 too, has jumped into the multiple-camera setup and with a quad-camera array on the rear side of the phone. The phone’s construction is of plastic material which is expected from mid-range devices but could have incorporated glass panel which gives a more premium look to the device.

The phone is powered by MediaTek Helio G90T chipset and gets the job done. The RAM offering begins from 4GB which should’ve ideally begun from 6Gb because of the copious consumption of memory even in idle mode. The UFS 2.1 storage is new but slower as compared to the 3.0 version. The phone comes with a side-positioned fingerprint sensor along with the front camera face-unlock which is easily accessible by the thumb.

The screen is a 90Hz Ultra Smooth Display with FHD+ resolution that is detailed and vivid. The brightness seems to be an issue on the device in outdoor-settings (bright sunlight). The phone lacks a notification LED, all thanks to the pinhole front camera positioning.

Pros / GOOD

  • A good screen to body ratio with minimal chin
  • 90Hz refresh rate does not evaporate the battery because of heavily optimized OS
  • The battery lasts up to 8 hours on a normal usage
  • Dual 4G support
  • 30W Flash Charging support replenishes the battery in an hour
  • Clutter-less, zero ad popups which can be enabled/disabled

Cons / BAD

  • The plastic body is prone to scratches
  • The camera performance is limited
  • Camera-AI needs an overall reinforcement
  • The proximity sensor lights up the phone while on-call and alters the notification toggles
  • Brightness is an impeding factor in outer-environment
  • The phone tends to heat up to 48 degrees under duress
  • The screen flickers and stutters when the battery reaches under 20%

Conclusion – Should you Buy or Not?

Realme 6 is not the device capable of challenging higher-spec mid-range phones. The configuration might seem powerful, but the overall optimization needs detailed flaw correction. The quad-camera setup renders average photos for a convoluted camera module. The AI-rendering is slow and dull that produces jagged-edges with lighter colors. The OIS is in the early stages and has room for much-needed improvement, making it a camera phone that does not act like one.

The UI, however, is very close to stock android and minimizes memory consumption by idle applications. The 30-watt fast charger is shipped with the device and has no problems in the battery division. But, that is all you can expect from a mid-range device that gets the job done for an average user.
