Realme 6 Review: Power-Packed Phone On A Budget

Realme 6

For a mid-range phone, the Realme 6 is a power-packed phone with segment-first features like a 90Hz display and 30W fast charging. The Helio G90T is a great performer and the quad-camera offers versatileness.


      Realme has announced a release of its new phone Realme 6.

      They have have been persistent in improving their device with every new release and giving the competition a run for their money. The newly-launched Realme 6 is one of the most aggressively-priced phones to come out of the Chinese OEMs markets.

      Flaunting off specs like a 90Hz display, a 64MP quad-camera, and the MediaTek Helio G90T, the Realme 6 isn’t just a mere upgrade over the Realme 5 Pro. In fact, it is changing the standard of mid-range phones in the market.

      Design & Build

      The phone has an elegant backdrop made out of polycarbonate which when brought to light, beams all across the back of the phone like rays of light. The design has been termed as the Comet design and comes in two colors Comet White and Comet Blue. But if you’re looking for a pop of color, the Comet Blue would be a better choice.

      Unlike Realme 5 Pro, Realme 6 has a rounded back and is lightweight that makes it comfortable to hold. The fingerprint scanner is now embedded within the power button on the right side of the phone making it easier for the user to unlock the device.


      Realme 6 has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with a 90Hz display rate. Videos play brilliantly and there are no lags or stutter in the UI. As a user, you have the freedom to switch between 60hz and 90Hz or set it on auto depending on the app being used.

      It is a tad bit disappointing that Realme 6 doesn’t have AMOLED panel as that would’ve drastically improved the viewing experience.


      Realme 6 has the Helio G90T chipset which is a gaming processor that does not disappoint either. Games played on the device do not lag and the frame drops are so minimal that they go unnoticed.

      Realme 6 comes in three alternatives with up to 8GB of DDR4X RAM and up to 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Applications open swiftly and there are no issues with multitasking.


      The Realme 6 has a 4,300mAh battery that seems like a downgrade from the 5,000mAh in the Realme 5, but after 2 hours of playing various games and the 90hz display being enabled, the battery didn’t discharge as quickly as I thought it would.

      The 30W charger is a massive jump from the 10W charger on the Realme 5 and it takes about 30-35 minutes for the battery to charge from 5% to 70%.

      With good battery life and a fast charger, the phone running out of charge shouldn’t be a problem.


      The Realme 6 has an impressive set of four rear cameras that include a 64-megapixel Samsung main sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel mono camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera with the 16-megapixel punch hole camera the front.

      Under good lighting conditions, Realme 6 captures some great shots with good detail and dynamic range. It also captures good portraits although for objects the edge detection can go askew at times.

      The ultrawide sensor captures decent pictures under good lighting conditions but disappoints under other lighting conditions.

      Although the camera quality suffers under poor lighting, it does manage to capture some amazing pictures.
