Reviews for the realme 6i

78.2% Realme 6i Smartphone Review – Successful Germany Launch | Notebookcheck
“Green Tea” and “White Milk” are the two colors that the Realme 6i is available in. And just like the real green tea the color might not please everyone. The combination of price and performance, on the other hand, most likely will. For less than $200 you get a smartphone equipped with 48 MP quad-camera, 128 GB of storage space, a large battery, and fast charging.
70% Realme 6i Review

The Realme 6i is a beautifully designed smartphone that on the surface offers a compelling set of features, including a long-lasting battery and capable gaming performance at a budget price. However, the camera is disappointing: while the quad layout is fantastic in some settings, the quality can be inconsistent – in low light, macro and zoom images fall short. Considering the Realme 7 offers higher specs at a similar price, it’s tough to recommend the Realme 6i to anyone looking beyond the basics.

Realme 6i Review: What the realme 6 should have been
Source: Fone Arena English
Just like the realme 6 at launch, the realme 6i has a starting price tag of Rs. 12999 for the 4GB/64GB version. The positives of the realme 6 are very present with the realme 6i — smooth 90Hz screen, amazing battery life and great day-to-day performance. To add to this, realme has fixed the thermal issues and the camera has been slightly improved. It is quite hard to find a smartphone that can compete with the spec sheet of the realme 6i, making it look like a great offer. If you wish to spend a lot of time gaming, my recommendation would be to get the version with 6GB of RAM, but for that you can get the realme 6.

80% Realme 6i Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Realme 6i is an interesting new choice for anyone looking for good hardware and features on a tight budget. It offers nearly all the good parts of the Realme 6 (Review), such as the powerful Helio G90T processor, 4,300mAh battery, and 90Hz refresh rate display. The places where it cuts back are the bundled charger and camera performance. For the asking price, the base variant of the Realme 6i offers good value for money as there is no other smartphone with a 90Hz display at this price. If you don't care much about that, the Poco M2 Pro (Review) could be a suitable alternative.

85% Realme 6i review: Smooth display, good battery life make it worthwhile
Source: India Today English
Much like the Realme 6, the Realme 6i delivers on its promises. It has a smooth and beautiful display with a 90Hz refresh rate, its design is uncommon and more subtle when compared with its siblings. The processor does a good job of handling a plethora of apps and allows not-so-intensive games to run well. Its cameras are also nice and produce detail-rich photos, both under bright light and low light using the night mode. And finally, the battery on the Realme 6i can last for about a day on a single charge and is capable enough to let you use a lot of apps without any worry.

I think this is a good time for Realme to bring the Realme 6i to the market. It is built much like the Realme 6, which is a good point to start from. Yes, the specifications are toned down, but so is the starting price. It looks as though the Realme 6i will appeal to those looking for performance on a budget, but should it be your first choice? Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for the full review of the Realme 6i coming soon.

Realme 6i/6S hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Realme has done a great job of positioning the Realme 6i as a tough to beat offer. You can't find a phone with as large a screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, this level of performance, this versatility of the camera experience, and this battery. Now add a nice build and a design that hits above its pay grade and you have a solid deal.

Compared to its older brother - the Realme 6 - the 6i loses out on a few things, but a big battery and surprisingly-premium features like NFC and a quad-camera setup still make this a compelling affordable buy.

realme 6i Review: Long Lasting Battery Life With A Catch

The realme 6i is not too bad a phone, as its battery life is a clear plus point. It’s very well built overall, and its unique backplate can also be a consideration for those who see it as an important aspoect of the phone. The camera does well too, for a phone in this price segment.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
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.
