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 carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

A C64 marked my entry into the world of PCs. I spent my student internship in the repair department of a computer shop and at the end of the day I was allowed to assemble my own 486 PC from “workshop remnants”. As a result of this, I later studied computer science at the Humboldt University in Berlin, with psychology also being added to my studies. After my first job as a research assistant at the university, I went to London for a year and worked for Sega in computer game translation quality assurance. This included working on games such as Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Company of Heroes. I have been writing for Notebookcheck since 2017.
