Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi 6A

80.6% Xiaomi Redmi 6A Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
With the Redmi 6A, Xiaomi presents the successor of the affordable Redmi 5A, keeping it at the same price while improving the equipment significantly. We evaluate in our review what improvements are waiting for the buyer of the 90-Euro (~$102; starting at $90 in the US) smartphone and how it fares against the competitors.
70% Xiaomi Redmi 6A Review: Best budget smartphone?
Source: The Indian Express English
Redmi 6A is a capable smartphone for the price. At the price, it delivers on performance, specifications, and is a compact and easy to use smartphone. However, the phone does have its fair share of cons like low-light camera performance, no fingerprint sensor and using the smartphone outside under direct sunlight. For under Rs 7,000 this is not a bad option, though Realme C1 will give tough competition to the phone as well.

Redmi 6A Review: screen, performance, & camera evaluated
Source: Android HCIdesign English
To conclude: for $100 it's very nice. Walking into a best buy or Walmart you won't find anything nearly this nice for $100 and what you do find will be a pre-paid phone locked to some MNVO or another, whereas this phone is unlocked The biggest downside to the price is you have to wait a month to get it from china.

70% Xiaomi Redmi 6A Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Redmi 6A is a fairly good update to the Redmi 5A, which itself was barely any different compared to the Redmi 4A (Review). You now get a tall screen, better processor, and improved polish overall. However, the price has gone up — Rs. 5,999 is still very good, especially considering the recent slide in the Indian Rupee's exchange rate, but it isn't quite as tempting as the Redmi 5A was at Rs. 4,999. This is also just an "introductory" price, and we don't yet know how long it will last or what it will increase to after that.

72% Xiaomi Redmi 6A Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Xiaomi Redmi 6A is Xiaomi’s most affordable offering this year. It’s meant for those who are upgrading from a feature phone to a smartphone for the first time. However, anyone buying the phone after years of using a feature phone might not be quite happy with the experience. It’s painfully sluggish to use because of the lower RAM, but the battery life of the phone is sufficient enough to surprise even a feature-phone user.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
