Xiaomi Redmi 6A Design

Your eyes will first be screened. Xiaomi has made this 18: 9 screen a part of the initial budget. Front panel of the phone is giving plain and plain look. The edges of the screen are slightly curved, which look good. The display is not completely irresponsible. Still, the top, the bottom and the edges are quite awkward. But the overall look is quite slick. Radmi 6A’s body is plastic. There is nothing shocking in this. Redmi 6A will be found in Black, Blue, Gold and Rose Gold colors. The black unit we found for review is good. But during the use of fingerprints on the back of it there must come


The camera on the back panel is slightly embossed. Xiaomi Redmi 6A weighs 145 grams. The power and voice enhancement and reducing buttons are on the right, the fingers reach the button easily. On the upper part of the phone, the 3.5mm headphone jack is in the lower and the Micro-USB port is in the lower part. The speaker is at the bottom on the back side. This means that the sound of the ringtones or alerts will not come neatly when placed on beds or any other surface. You will not get a fingerprint sensor on the back panel of this phone. However, in this budget you have been given a fingerprint sensor for security in other companies’ smartphones. There are two separate trays on the left side. A single nano is for sim card and the other has a nano-SIM and slot for a different microSD card.

Xiaomi Redmi 6A Specifications and Software

Xiaomi has used the new Helio A22 processor of the MediaTech brand, not just a chipset of Qualcomm 400 series in this phone. This is the first chipset of MediaTek’s new Halio A series. It is made from 12 nm process. I.e. hope for better battery life. It is possible to use 4G data from any SIM in Redmi 6A. But at the same time only one SIM will support VOLTE HD, whether it is in any slot. Based on the storage, there are two variants of Redmi 6A- 16 GB and 32 GB. Both variants come with 2 GB RAM. Our review unit had 16 GB of storage. We have 16 GB RAM variants available for review. We found that only 10 GB was available for use in the phone after the pre-installed app. The phone has support for up to 256 GB MicroSD card. The 18: 9 screen is 5.45 inches. Its resolution is 720×1440 pixels. A battery of 3,000 mAh is provided for power backup.



In the phone you will first find UC Browser, Chrome and Xiaomi’s default browser, Facebook, Amazon, PhonePe, Netflix, Opera and other third-party apps. The phone has a Facemoji keyboard that is equipped with emoji, stickers, GIF, theme and more. In addition you will find Microsoft Apps in the phone. Mi Music and Mi Video are full of promotional content. Spam is also present in the Gallery app, after playing the recorded video, we saw a screen that suggests a hoax video. In the Theme Applications, Settings app, in the storage cleaner function and Security app you will see an ad on the full screen. After seeing so many ads, we got a little frustration. It would be wrong to say that the UI Interface is not good. There will be UI Customization options, Clone Apps, Display Color Row Adjustment, Gesture etc

xiaomi Redmi 6A Performance

Xiaomi’s budget will not disappoint you for using a smartphone. After switching from one app to another and closing the app, the phone drops slightly. You can use these after one or two seconds after loading the message and other apps. Occasionally it takes a while to start one or two apps. If you want, you can hide the onscreen Android navigation buttons and use the gestures instead. But according to us, these are extremely slow. The keyboard also occasionally bothered. But Google’s Gboard is already installed. Not enough for just 2 GB RAM Android.


The size of the screen is good enough to play video and games. We did not have any kind of trouble in the viewing angle of Xiaomi Redmi 6A. The sound of the speaker on the back panel is not very good. In Antu, Redmi 6A got 61,053, in Geekchain’s single-core 765 and 2,306 in multi-core test. It got a 20fps score in the GFXBrench T-Rex Test, although the 3D game does not work well in the phone. The 3D Mark Ice Storm has scored 5,451 in the Extreme Test and 453 in the Silhouette Test.

xiaomi Redmi 6A Battery Backup

A battery of 3,000 mAh providers power backup. When you were using Redmi 6A then it gave up to 13 hours 22 minutes. The credit goes to the processor and the MIUI optimization. Its battery in common use will support you throughout the day. If you do not use the phone too much then the battery will last for about one and a half days. On the other hand, it takes about 3 hours for the battery to be fully charged with zero. WiFi 802.11b / g / n, Bluetooth version 4.2 and GPS are for connectivity. Redmi 6A runs on the UIU.6 9.6 which is based on the Android 8.1 Oreo. Our review unit had got the security patches of August 2018. At the moment, there is no information available about the Android 9.0 Pie update. In use, the Redmi 6A did not disappoint most of the time. Sometimes the lag was realized. But there is no problem with it. Phone time takes about 3 hours to charge full charge from 0.

xiaomi Redmi 6A Camera

The low quality phone’s camera quality is not as spectacular. If you want to capture great photos then this phone is not the best for you. This phone is right for those who only share the actual picture on social media and messaging apps. There is a 13-megapixel camera on the rear. It is equipped with F / 2.2 aperture and PDAF. Our sample shot came well. The details were satisfactory and the focus was also Sharpe. There were some shots in which it was clear that the focus was not locked on the Perfect Spot. The small bright object or some parts of the frame came in a big way. Generally Colors Bright and Vibrant Comes.

During the night, we had to take special care of things like staying stable and saving the phone from moving. When the light source was around, the photos came in fine. The photos were completely black in low-light areas. We found that whatever the situation, Redmi 6A takes about a second or two seconds to save the photos. You will be able to record videos up to 1080 pixel resolution. But these are shakey and some jerky records. Photos taken in Bright Sunlight came offensive and needy sharper. Performance of 5 megapixel front camera is satisfactory. Photos come with entry level quality only. There are features like Time Lapse and Panorama Mode in the Camera app.

Answer: Why You Should Buy Xiaomi Redmi 6A


If seen, there is a great update of Redmi 65, Redmi 6A. Redmi 6A has a long screen and better processor. The price of Rs 5,999 is also breathtaking, especially by seeing the rupee depreciating. But the price of Redmi 5A at Rs 4,999 was much more breathtaking. This is also the “introductory” price of the Redmi 6A. We do not know how long the price will remain. In Redmi 6A you will get 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB variants, then no 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage. If you are willing to spend a little bit more money then you will get a better processor and a fingerprint sensor with the Redmi 6’s 3 GB RAM and 32GB storage variants. As far as the challenges are concerned, Redmi 6A is much better than the rest of its price phone. Whether Coolpad Mega 5A or more expensive Honor 7S. We would say that even if the price of this phone is more than 1,000 rupees, then this is also a better option.
