realme 6 Pro smartphone review: Swank around with big numbers

Dual selfie cam. For only 350 Euros (~$394), the realme 6 Pro has a lot to offer on its datasheet. A 90 Hz display, a quad-cam system on the back plus a dual-selfie cam and a decent amount of memory. Our test report shows what the manufacturer ultimately gets out of the installed hardware.

realme 6 Pro

After the sister models realme 6 and realme 6i already made a good start in our tests, the realme 6 Pro now has to show what it can offer for a price of 350 Euros (~$394). A first look at the equipment shows that the built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G and 8 GB RAM should provide for a smooth system operation. The 128 GB UFS 2.1 memory has almost become standard in this class and the Qualcomm Adreno 618 is suitable for medium demands on graphics performance.

In our test we compare the realme 6 Pro with the competing devices listed below. You can also add more smartphones from our database under each section for comparison.

Case - Realme smartphone with Corning Gorilla Glass

The housing of the realme 6 Pro is framed by a stable metal frame. The back feels like an acrylic-like plastic and the front is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. You can choose between "Lightning Blue" and "Lightning Red" as colors, whereby both options allow a flashing color gradient to appear on the back.

Features - Space for two nanoSIM cards plus microSD

Besides the already mentioned hardware equipment, the realme 6 Pro also has a microSD card slot. The inserted memory cards can be set as the standard storage location for images and files, but reformatting to internal storage is not possible. In addition to the memory card, two nanoSIM slots also find their place. These are both LTE-compatible and support VoLTE and VoWLAN.

A USB Type-C port is available for wired data transfer, which is connected internally with the USB 2.0 standard. A 3.5 mm jack connection is also available, but users have to do without a notification LED. The Camera2 API is available with "Level 3" and DRM Widevine L1 is also supported.

Software - RealmeOS and Opera browser

The realme 6 Pro runs an Android 10 system with security patches as of May 5, 2020 and realme's own user interface version 1.0. This is very similar to a pure Android system, but has, for example, a different organization of the settings menu. The manufacturer also preinstalls some third-party apps, including the Opera browser. While these can be easily uninstalled, the customized apps for music, pictures and videos as well as the phone manager must remain on the smartphone.

Communication and GPS - NFC and Wi-Fi 5 in the realme 6 Pro

Our test device can establish cellular connections in GSM, 3G and LTE networks. The latter enables Cat. 9 download speeds of up to 900 Mb/s and upload rates of up to 50 Mb/s. NFC, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) are available for short-range connections.

In our WLAN test, the realme smartphone with the reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12 achieved speeds of an average of 292 Mb/s when receiving data and 290 Mb/s when transmitting data. This means that it can be placed in the middle of our test field and shows only a slight difference from the higher-placed models, especially when it comes to receiving data.

Telephony and Call Quality - Clear connection with good volume

The telephony app of the realme 6 Pro offers direct access to a numeric keypad and allows you to search your own contact list via a second tab. In conversations, the smartphone shows itself to have a good volume and transmits both participants clearly.

Cameras - Good front camera in the realme 6 Pro

Front camera shot
Front camera shot

On the back of the realme 6 Pro there is a 64 MP main sensor from Samsung, an 8 MP sensor for ultra-wide-angle shots, a 12 MP telephoto lens and a 2 MP sensor for macro shots. The front camera consists of a 16 MP main sensor and an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens. Pictures taken with it show many details but somewhat pale colors. Fine structures look a little blurred even at low zoom levels and a fine grain is noticeable towards the edges. The wide-angle lens enhances the effects mentioned but sometimes shows significantly stronger colors. In the camera app, users can select a variety of beautification modes and color filters. A portrait mode also adds a slightly exaggerated bokeh effect to the shot. No other customization options are available.

With the main camera, subjects are captured in great detail, with a visible grain appearing outside the focus area. Higher zoom levels also reveal structures that are not clearly delimited from one another. If the zoom is used, objects in the image are only blurred at five times magnification and with moderately recognizable details. Colors also look a little pale. The ultra-wide-angle lens takes pictures in good lighting conditions with many details, whereby poorly illuminated areas with partially muddy surfaces appear. In addition, a clearly visible hem sneaks in around objects, as can be seen in the test picture on the left side at the edge of the building. Our test subject can still be recognized under poor lighting conditions, but the colors turn too dark and the image is covered with a visible grain. Here, however, the night mode helps to achieve a better result. Users can also make manual settings for ISO, shutter speed, white balance, focus and exposure via an Expert mode.

Video recordings are of a similar quality to our test photographs. The camera also copes well with the change between light and dark scenes, and a two-stage image stabilizer reliably reduces blurring. While users can choose between 30 and 60 fps at 720p and 1080p resolutions, 4K recordings are only possible at a fixed frame rate.

Accessories and warranty - Protective cover included

The realme 6 Pro comes with a USB plug-in power supply with a suitable USB Type-C cable, a SIM needle and a protective cover made of silicone. The latter sits very firmly on the smartphone and makes it difficult to operate the volume buttons. Realme also offers other smartphone accessories on its own website.

The manufacturer grants buyers a guarantee period of 24 months. 

Input devices & handling - Drag-and-drop hardly possible

For entering text, realme uses Google's standard keyboard GBoard. This can be adapted in many ways and is also well suited for typing longer sentences. The touchscreen responds reliably to inputs but is not particularly suitable for longer drag-and-drop movements.

To unlock the smartphone, users can use the side-mounted fingerprint sensor and face recognition. Both worked reliably in our test.

Display - Android smartphone with 90 Hz screen

Subpixel
Subpixel

The screen of the realme 6 Pro consists of a 6.6-inch IPS panel and offers a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels. However, the maximum brightness of 419 cd/m² is only sufficient for the lowest position in our test field. With the sensor activated, we measured a maximum brightness of 444 cd/m² and in the APL50 test, the realme 6 Pro achieved 417 cd/m². The lowest adjustable brightness is 2.34 cd/m².

Our measurements also show that PWM is used for brightness control. However, this only occurs from a brightness of less than 38% and with a somewhat higher frequency of 2,336 Hz. Therefore, users with sensitive eyes do not necessarily have to worry about soreness when looking at the display.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 2336 Hz ≤ 38 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 2336 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 38 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 2336 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9600 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The display of the realme 6 Pro also offers a fairly good contrast ratio of 1,195:1 and an only slightly increased black value of 0.37 cd/m². In the APL50 test, the latter also increases only slightly to 0.38 cd/m².

The CalMAN analysis shows that image content on the realme 6 Pro is reproduced with too high a blue component. However, users can set the color temperature warmer or colder in the menu and choose between a vivid and a soft color display.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
23.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12.4 ms rise
↘ 10.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 34 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
33.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise

Performance - Upper middle class

The performance of the realme 6 Pro corresponds to smartphones of the upper middle class and ensures a smooth running system. Most applications are started quickly and even more-demanding apps can run. This may occasionally result in somewhat longer loading times.

In the benchmarks, the Android smartphone shows good results if the tests relate to the system and memory performance. When it comes to graphics-heavy disciplines, the realme 6 Pro usually performs a little more moderately, which means it ends up in the middle of our test field. The overall distances to the competition are rather small.

The benchmarks were carried out with the 90 Hz mode activated.

The results of the browser benchmarks meet our expectations for the installed SoC, but the competition usually does a little better. In everyday life, however, websites are built up quickly, smooth scrolling is possible and media content is made available quickly.

* ... smaller is better

Realme installs a 128 GB UFS 2.1 memory in the 6 Pro according to the datasheet. In our test, this delivers average write and read rates, but the values indicate a UFS 2.0 memory instead. The internal microSD card reader does a little better with our Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 reference memory card.

Overall, the realme smartphone only has to surrender to the Huawei P40 Lite

Games - Touchscreen hinders game flow

The Qualcomm Adreno 618 installed here is suitable for games with medium demands on graphics performance. In Arena of Valor, the HD setting occasionally caused small stutters and PUBG Mobile ran smoothly on a medium graphics level. In the games themselves, the relatively high surface resistance of the screen hindered smooth gameplay, since this made it impossible to move the fingers smoothly with drag and drop.

Speakers

Only the speaker on the bottom of the realme 6 Pro is used to play media content. It delivers a good volume but tends to sound a bit tinny when set to maximum. External output devices can be connected to the smartphone via a 3.5 mm jack plug.

In review: realme 6 Pro. Test unit provided by: realme Germany

In our test, the realme 6 Pro delivers exactly what it promises and can therefore place itself on the market as a solid competitor to other devices. The system performance corresponds to the installed hardware and the other components also do their job at class level. The 90 Hz display secures a plus point, which, however, also ensures a slightly higher price than comparable smartphones.

Buyers of the realme 6 Pro get exactly what the manufacturer promises, including a 90 Hz display and attractive coloring.

While the smartphone is visually appealing, one or the other flaw shows through the selected materials. The protective film on the screen is particularly noteworthy here, as it is not only susceptible to scratches but also makes drag-and-drop movements more difficult. The camera hump on the back is also quite high but is for compensated quite well by the included protective silicone cover. In the end, the realme 6 Pro is a solid smartphone for a good price with little to complain about.

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).
