realme 6 Pro: A good smartphone that needs fine-tuning

Offers tightly packed features: The realme 6 Pro
Over the years, former high-end features have repeatedly seeped through to the lower price ranges. The most current element is 90 Hz displays in mid-range smartphones, of which realme also built one into the 6 Pro.

The current top smartphones from realme are called 6, 6i and 6 Pro. All models are available at a reasonable price, while at the same time offering a respectable list of features. The realme 6 Pro shows itself with the upper mid-range SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G, an Adreno 618 graphics unit, 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal memory. On top of that there is still space for a microSD card and two NanoSIMs.

The pure hardware performance is sufficient to keep up with the current competition. An average good WiFi performance, NFC, Bluetooth 5.1 and GPS accuracy suitable for everyday use help here. The fingerprint sensor on the side also works quickly and reliably, the same applies to facial recognition.

The display as the heart

With the 90 Hz display, realme is not without competition in spite of the relatively low price of 350 euros. Since manufacturers can also make a few mistakes when it comes to the screen, the details matter. Here the 6 Pro scores with a good brightness of maximum 444 cd/m² with activated sensor. The color mode is also solid and can be adjusted to your own preferences in the menu.

While a refresh rate of 90 Hz ensures a more pleasant picture, the tiresome subject of brightness control cannot be left out. We encounter PWM in the realme 6 Pro, but with a comparatively high frequency of 2,336 Hz it should also be suitable for users with somewhat sensitive eyes. What bothered us in the test, however, was the applied screen protector. This made fluid drag-and-drop movements unnecessarily difficult and, if possible, should be removed or replaced by a smoother version.

I made my first IT walking attempts on a 386 with 4 MB of RAM. After that followed various PCs and notebooks, which I looked after and repaired in my circle of friends and acquaintances. After an apprenticeship as a telecommunications systems engineer and several years of professional experience, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering. Today I live out my fascination for IT, technology and mobile devices by writing test reports. In my free time I like to devote myself to vegan cooking and spend time with my family, which includes a whole range of animal roommates.

Because of my interest in computer games I started studying computer science, became a psychologist, but stayed true to the games and the hardware. For example during my year abroad in London as a games tester at Sega. In my spare time I find a balance between PC games and sports (meanwhile mainly indoor soccer and running after my toddler), playing guitar and building bamboo bikes (well, so far only one under guidance).
