    Realme 6i review

     44     

    The new Realme 6 lineup is all about speed on the budget and even the cheapest phone in the roster - the Realme 6i - is as gaming-friendly as the rest. The 6i offers fresh looks, high performance, and a quad-camera setup, but it can also has a extra large 5,000 mAh battery to boast about.

    The lower pixel count aside, the Realme 6i manages to keep the attention with a capable rear camera with a 48MP primary and am 8MP ultrawide. There is also a 2MP macro snapper, and a 2MP depth sensor but these hardly add to the camera experience.And finally, you have the Realme UI and Android 10 running on top of all this hardware.

    The Realme 6i is a looker like any other Realme - the maker is already known for its unique takes on design. The phone also packs a new Helio G80 chipset and it should be a match to the performance of the more expensive Realme 6 devices as the 6i has a lower screen resolution of 720p.And finally, you have the Realme UI and Android 10 running on top of all this hardware.

Realme seems to be particularly fond of this particular yellow hue.The Realme 6i also comes with a pre-applied screen film. It's quite thin and the protection won't be as good as a glass piece, but we still like having it as an option.
