Reviews for the Realme 6

80.7% Realme 6 Smartphone Review: 90 Hz Isn't Everything | Notebookcheck
Realme, the new star in the smartphone universe, introduces a 90-Hz display to the mid-range for 230-300 Euros (~$261-$340) depending on the configuration. The lowest-end configuration contains 64 GB of ROM and 4 GB of RAM.
100% Realme 6 review: The most affordable 90Hz phone we’ve ever tested
Source: Expert Reviews English
For the price, however, it’s really tough to find fault with the Realme 6; it’s one of the finest smartphones in its price range, and the cheapest phone we’ve ever tested to have a 90Hz screen. Performance and battery life are decent and even the cameras are fine – if not quite up to the standard of the iPhone SE (2020).

Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro Review: 90Hz Displays For The Masses
Source: Unbox English Archive.org version
Realme has done it again – the brand’s two newest phones are excellent value for money even if you don’t factor in their silky-smooth displays. Both phones are easy on the eyes, incredibly capable, and have a good set of snappers, as well as displays that are a pleasure to use with games and movies. Both phones are definitely worth the price that Realme is asking for them—Php 16,990 for the 8GB/128GB variant of the Realme 6 Pro, Php 13,990 for the 8GB/128GB variant of the Realme 6, and Php 11,990 for the 4GB/128GB variant of the Realme 6.

Realme 6 - Gaming Review @ 90Fps And Max Settings! (Overheating?)

In this video, we tested a few games that run on recommended settings and maximum possible settings. We also benchmark the fps counter, fps stability, battery life, charging, heating issues, and its gaming capability at 90fps. For streaming, it has 8gb of ram so multitasking is very easy.

Realme 6 Unboxing, Quick Review: Potential Game-Changing Phone?
Source: Unbox English Archive.org version
From the looks of it, Realme has another winner in their hands with the Realme 6, which should complement its brother nicely when it’s officially released in the Philippines in the next few days. Just like the Realme 6 Pro we don’t have solid pricing for the Realme 6 yet, though the phone starts at INR 13,999 (roughly Php 9.3K) in India for the 4GB/64GB variant. If Realme can keep pricing close to what it’s offering in the Indian subcontinent, then Xiaomi’s really in a world of hurt in the sub Php 15K price point this year.

Device Review: Realme 6
Source: What Mobile English Archive.org version
The Realme 6 once again provides bang for buck, but with a camera that disappoints in some aspects. Given that the device comes so soon after its predecessors, and costs a fair bit more, I can’t get as enthusiastic about it as I would like to, even though on the surface it’s got (nearly) all the ingredients to be an outstanding device in its field.

Comment

Model:

In the year 2010, Oppo created a sub-brand of smartphones called Oppo Real, but later, in 2018, the brand was spun off into its own separate brand called Realme. Realme aims to provide interesting phones by bringing together a perfect combination of the high end of the mid range and the lower end of the high range. Realme had always done a good job of updating designs while keeping a sense of familiarity across all of its successive product generations, and it has managed to maintain that with the latest addition to the family, the Realme 6. This device definitely carries a stunning look that manages to steal attention at first sight with the company’s incorporated ‘Comet design’. It has shiny streaks of lines that meet right at the bottom, making it look like a replica of the Realme XT – the Realme 6 looks indistinguishable from the XT in terms of its design and exterior. However, the Realme 6 has opted for a water drop notch instead of the punch hole cutout of the Realme XT.

The phone has a polished finish, and the Comet design plays an important role in secretly hiding any fingerprint marks on the back with its reflective back. As for the display, the Realme 6 comes with an 6.5-inch Full-HD+ display with a 90Hz screen refresh rate. The phone provides adequate brightness and sharp colors in all situations. There is also an eye-care mode, dark mode and OSIE (Object and Semantic Images and Eye-tracking) effect which further enhances the user’s viewing experience. In terms of its performance, the Realme 6 has been incorporated with a MediaTek Helio G90T and runs on Android 10 based on the company’s in-house Realme UI. The UI was found to be flawless in multitasking and shifting from one app to another. Even with extended gaming sessions at high graphic settings, the phone did not lag in any way.

The Realme 6 has been equipped with a total of five cameras, with four at the back and one at the front. The quad-camera setup consists of a 64-megapixel high-resolution ultra-wide-angle sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a B&W Portrait lens and a 2-megapixel macro lens. There are also other exciting features included, such as Time Lapse, Ultra-Macro, Pro camera, Slo-Mo, Pano and Night Mode. As for the front camera, there is a dedicated 16-megapixel selfie shooter. The rear cameras do an impressive job in daylight conditions. As for the selfie shots, there was no unnecessary beautification of the image and only negligible distortion. In terms of its battery, the Realme 6 has a decent 4,300mAh battery paired with Oppo’s 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0. The phone was found to be able to deliver up to 1.5 days of battery life with regular calling, browsing and scrolling, while it lasts for a little more than one day with extensive usage. While the Realme 6 has some great features, the choice of owning one is entirely subjective and depends on individual preference.

6.50":

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.
