Reviews for the Xiaomi Poco X6

Poco X6 5G review: Surprisingly good
Source: Think Digit English
The Poco X6 5G launched in India with its big brother, the Poco X6 5G Pro. Both smartphones roll out in the Indian market as competition that even pricier phones are afraid of. The Poco X6 5G launched in India at a starting price of ₹21,999, and believe me this smartphone is worth every penny. According to my testing and experience, the Poco X6 5G is a proper mid-range killer. Its beautiful and responsive display is as good as a sub-35K smartphone’s display. The processor is also a mid-range chipset, the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 runs games and other apps smoothly. The low-light camera is an exception, but otherwise, the camera is brilliant including the front camera. Coming to its battery, it’s one thing that Poco should focus on. If that’s fixed….this smartphone is such a gem. However, I really loved the fast charging in this smartphone.

Xiaomi Poco X6 and X6 Pro Smartphones Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
Both Xiaomi Poco X6 and X6 Pro are extremely powerful smartphones considering the pricing. These smartphones were designed for enthusiasts who wanted the highest performance and battery possible in this price range and Xiaomi certainly delivered that. Both smartphones have close flagship-level displays, chipsets, batteries, and even design. No other smartphone comes close to providing this level of value at the same price tag. Both smartphones are dominating their respective price segment. They are excellent smartphones but not without flaws. Like the IP dust and water protection could have been better or even better camera performance. But considering the price tag, it’s hard to call them cons. So, if you are an enthusiast whose priority is great design, fantastic display, or performance-oriented chipset, then these new smartphones are going to be perfect for you. But if you care more about the camera, you may want to go for some other smartphone.

80% Poco X6 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
In a vacuum, the Poco X6 is a great purchase, it has excellent specifications for the price, and it’s very enjoyable to live with. The problem comes via its Pro sibling, which only costs £50 more and is a much more compelling option. The X6 Pro stands out as one of the best options for gaming in its price bracket, and that’s definitely not the case with the standard Poco X6. However, the display, speakers and charging speeds are still a cut above most of the competition. You still get that solid main camera, too. If you know you’ll never be gaming, or doing anything processor-heavy like video editing, then you could save yourself some cash here. In most cases, though, I’d advise saving up the extra and going for the Pro. Then you’ll get double the storage, Android 14, and a much faster processor. It’s also worth considering the Samsung Galaxy A34, which can currently be found for less than the X6 and offers longer software support and far less bloatware. With that model, you’d lose out on some performance and get a less impressive display, though.

85% POCO X6 5G review: performance, performance, and performance
Source: 91mobiles English
POCO X6 5G is a no-nonsense, performance-oriented phone that is ideal for gaming, watching videos, or multitasking. With 67W fast-charging support, the phone refuels in no time and is ready to go again, with its 5,100mAh battery keeping the lights on beyond a day with ease. The phone also manages to click decent pictures but it does have some consistency issues in this department. While I like the design of the phone, if you hate using phone cases, you’d have a problem here as the protruding camera sensors cause wobbling issues while the phone is lying on a flat surface. In this price range, I cannot think of a phone that offers better performance, so I’d say that if you are looking for a phone that delivers on this front, the X6 is a no-brainer. However, if you’re looking for a better camera phone, you can go for other options such as Moto Edge 40 Neo, Realme 11 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy F54.

Poco X6 Review: Xtreme Performance On A Budget
Source: Cashify English
Poco has always offered a fantastic price-to-performance ratio with its X lineup, and the new Poco X6 is no exception. It has a sharp 1.5K display with a 120Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass Victus, a first in this segment. The Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 is capable of handling daily tasks and fulfilling your gaming needs. Cameras have always been the weakness of Poco devices, and sadly, the X6 continues this tradition. The 5,100mAh battery can easily last a day, and the 67W charger can quickly top up the phone within an hour. Overall, the Poco X6 is a powerful smartphone that will fulfil most of your needs if you can look past its average cameras and bloatware-ridden software.

80% POCO X6 Review: A reliable mid-range performer
Source: Android Headlines English
The POCO X6 is a decent package for its price. The phone has a lot going for it. You get an excellent display, loud stereo speakers, reliable performance, a good main rear camera, and awesome charging speed. All of this is packed in a decent build quality and design. A good design is subjective, anyway. On the downside, the other three cameras leave a little to be desired. The phone’s battery life isn’t great either.

80% Poco X6 review: A solid choice
Source: India Today English
The Poco X6 sits in direct competition with the Redmi Note 13 Pro. While the latter, with its 200 MP camera, will surely offer a better camera performance, there is also a big price difference between the Poco X6 and the Redmi Note 13 Pro. The Poco X6 is priced in India at a starting price of Rs 19,999 for the 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage variant, and goes up to Rs 22,999 for the model that offers 12 GB RAM 512 GB storage. The Redmi Note 13 Pro, on the other hand, is priced at Rs 23,999 for the 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage version, and goes up to Rs 27,999 for the 12 GB RAM and 256 GB option. There is a price difference of straight up Rs 4,000 for the base variant and Rs 5,000 for the top variant. Essentially, the Poco X6 is able to offer a more well-rounded performance for a much lower price. So, unless you are looking at a camera-centric performance, and don’t mind shelling out an extra grand, the Poco X6 would definitely be better value for money.

POCO X6 Review: Is It Worth the Hype in 2024?
Source: Tech X Reviews English
In the fiercely contested mid-range smartphone market, the POCO X6 holds its ground well. Its pricing pits it directly against other mid-range phones from brands like Samsung, Realme, and Oppo. What makes the POCO X6 stand out is its balance of performance and features – notably the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset, a substantial battery with fast charging, and a high-quality display – often at a price point lower than its counterparts. The POCO X6 emerges as a strong contender in the value-for-money segment. It successfully delivers a suite of features that are typically associated with more expensive models, such as a high-refresh-rate AMOLED display, substantial RAM and storage options, and a versatile camera setup with improved night photography capabilities. The inclusion of contemporary features like 5G supports further future-proofs of the device, adding to its value proposition.

POCO X6 5G Review
Source: Yugatech English
So overall, the POCO X6 is a very capable phone with decent performance numbers and battery life. Not to mention it can easily run most of the games you can think of playing such as Genshin and Honkai. Best of all, it comes at an affordable price without stepping into the Xiaomi range. As for the price, the POCO X6 starts at just PHP XX,XXX, making it a serious contender in the mid-range smartphone segment. For that price, you already get a Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset with more than enough RAM and storage to match. With POCO starting the year strong, mid-range smartphones that will be launched later this year will have some serious competition with the X6. But if you’re in dire need of upgrading to a more capable phone this January 2024, you can’t go wrong with the Poco X6.

80% Poco X6 5G review
Source: Tech Advisor English
On the hardware side, the Poco X6 is an upgrade on last year’s model. It has a a higher IP rating, improved speakers, a bigger battery and more capable rear and front cameras – plus smooth performances thanks to its Snapdragon processor. It also retains the standard Poco compromises: a flimsy build quality, poor low-light camera performance and (most importantly) cluttered software with tons of app bloat. If you can overlook these flaws, then the Poco X6 5G is a strong mid-ranger… but the X6 Pro is even better still.

The Poco X6 is an excellent upgrade over the Poco X5, improving on almost every single aspect - design, display, battery and charging, speakers, performance, camera, software even. And it is as well-rounded as every other Xiaomi-made phone and offers great bang for the money. We liked the Poco X6 for its IP54-rated design, but the real showstopper is the Dolby Vision OLED with all sorts of niceties. The 67W fast charging and the new chip are quite alright, too. The cameras do well in broad daylight, but the low-light performance is mediocre at best. We did expect more. Finally, the Poco X6 should have launched with HyperOS like the Poco X6 Pro, but alas - it comes with Android 13 and MIUI 14. The HyperOS update is around the corner, but it will eat one of those three promised major updates right after you buy the phone, which is a terrible trick. Overall, the Poco X6 is a solid phone with competitive price and features. And that is why it is easy to recommend in spite of some not so major flaws - it is just a solid offer.

Qualcomm Adreno 710: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets, integrated in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 SoC. According to Qualcomm, 2x faster than the old Adreno 644 in the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
