Design and Display

Budget or not, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 has a stylish build and interestingly has a design modelled after premium smartphones but instead comes with a metallic cover rather than a glass finish. Following the modern tide, the smartphone drops the touch buttons for on-screen ones. Also, there is the elegant slender build seen in the 18:9 aspect ratio accentuated by minimal bezels giving you enough screen for viewing.

Speaking of visuals, the smartphone’s display extends up to 5.45-inches stretching the bezels thin on all sides giving you up to 80% of the screen to body ratio. However, to make things affordable, the Xiaomi sports only 1440 x 720 pixels resolution and there’s no indication of a Corning Gorilla Glass protection so you might want to get a screen guard.

Battery and Camera

Powering the device up is an average battery which is just enough for a decent daily experience that’s likely to be plugged in at the end of the day. There is a 3, 000mAh capacity that charges through the conventional MicroUSB port with no fast charge available,

As for the optics, the smartphone is provided with a nice pair of cameras on the back which is somewhat a norm in today’s smartphone world. The front is handled by a 5MP camera that is used for the face unlock and supports portrait mode. At the rear, you’ve got a 12MP and 2MP camera delivering quite colourful pictures.

Hardware and Software

On the inside, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 is driven by a decent MediaTek chipset which is considered to be of mid-range grade and delivers a good result in that respect. The processor in play is a MediaTek MT6762 with eight cores and a PowerVR GE8320 GPU handling graphics.

The rest of the pile includes a 3GB RAM and 32GB storage space and a 4GB option paired with 64GB internal storage space. Expansion limit is set at 256GB, which is more than enough if you need more space. Regarding the OS, there is Android 8.1 Oreo covered by MIUI 9 skin.

Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pricing and Availability

It is readily available in various online stores and retail outlets at 45, 000 Naira for the 3GB RAM and 56, 000 Naira for the 4GB variant depending on the deal.
