Realme 6 pro – Full Review | Specification | Performance

Highlights of Realme 6 Pro:

  • Realme 6 Pro comes with a 6.6 inch LCD Display with Gorilla Glass 5 Protection.
  • Realme 6 Pro is the Tripple Camera Android Phone which has 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 2X optical zoom.
  • Realme 6 Pro has a 4300mAh battery with Fast Charging.

After the early launch of Realme 6, nowhere is Realme 6 pro. It has the same specification as Realme 6 with the change of processor, dual front punch-hole camera and other little bit minor changes. New Snapdragon 720G is used in this smartphone. The first smartphone with this processor in this price range.

Design of Realme 6 Pro:

With every new model, Realme changes the design of the back, and for the 6 Pro, we now have a lightning-inspired design in either blue or orange. It looks quite funky and isn’t too flashy, which we like. The glossy finish of the back makes this phone very slippery but thankfully it’s Gorilla Glass 5, so scuff marks weren’t really an issue. The Realme 6 Pro is quite heavy with a 8.9 mm size and the weight is 202g.

The front is where we have the biggest change, compared to other Realme phones in this price range. The Realme 6 Pro has 6.6-inch LCD display with a dual punch-hole design, which gives this phone a premium look. The cutout is in the upper left corner of the display and isn’t too distracting. There’s Gorilla Glass 5 here too, but Realme also ships this phone with a screen guard pre-applied.

The layout of the buttons and ports is familiar, however, the power button has been flattened in order to accommodate a fingerprint sensor. We don’t mind this design choice, as the button lines up nicely with your thumb when holding this phone with your right hand. Left-handed users would probably prefer a fingerprint sensor on the back, though. There’s no in-display fingerprint sensor since Realme hasn’t’ used an AMOLED panel. The SIM tray on the left has slots for two Nano-SIMs and a microSD card.

The Realme 6 Pro doesn’t have a large protrusion for the camera module at the back, and the four cameras are lined up in a similar fashion as on the Realme 6. Overall, we feel that Realme has done a good job with the build quality, but the 6 Pro has nothing that we haven’t seen before. The company also claims that there are three layers of waterproofing on this phone, which should help it survive splashes of water even though there’s no official IP rating.

The retail box contains familiar items such as a

  • SIM eject tool
  • Data cable
  • 30W VOOC Flash Charge adapter
  • Silicone case
  • Usual leaflets.

Specifications and Features of Realme 6 Pro:

Realme is trumpeting the fact that the Realme 6 Pro is the world’s first phone to feature the Snapdragon 720G mobile platform. Logically, it is one step below than the Snapdragon 730G, which is recently seen in many handsets performing well in games and battery efficiency. The Snapdragon 720G is also a 8nm chipset with Adreno 618 GPU contains six Kryo 470 CPU cores and two Kryo 465 CPU cores same as in the Snapdragon 730G. Since this is a newer chip, it does also have a few advantages over the Snapdragon 730G, such as support for Bluetooth 5.1satellite navigation, and a more power-efficient Sensing Hub.

Realme UI – An Independent UI for Realme:

Just like the Realme 6, the Realme 6 Pro runs on Realme UI, which is essentially a version of ColorOS 7 for Realme phones. It runs on Android 10 with path update of February. Realme says it will be adding two new apps in a software update in the near future, called Doc Vault, and Soloop. Doc Vault is supposed to offer a quick and secure way to access your personal information and government documents, such as PAN and Aadhar card details, vehicle registration numbers, etc. So loop is used as a video creation tool which can create mini-movie clips quickly.

Performance and Battery life of Realme 6 Pro:

The Snapdragon 720G is a powerful chip, so as expected, general usage and multitasking were handled superbly. The 90Hz refresh rate makes usage feel smooth, and the good thing is that there’s an Auto option, which means it automatically scales down to 60Hz to conserve power if an app can’t benefit from a higher refresh rate. Even though this isn’t an AMOLED panel, we found the colors and brightness to be more than adequate.

The capacitive fingerprint sensor is insanely quick, and even the slightest tap is enough to unlock the phone without needing to actually press the button. Face recognition continues to be quick too and works equally well even in the dark. Actual gaming performance is pretty solid too. PUBG Mobile ran smoothly at relatively high graphics settings. Under 10 percent of charge it can survives for another 30-minute match, which is good and it is not heated so much. The 6 Pro was comfortable to hold for gaming sessions. On full charge, Realme 6 Pro can run for a 1.5 day, just like Realme 6 and also for a heavy user it will go one day. We recorded a run-time of 21 hours and 42 minutes in our HD video battery loop test, which is very good. The bundled 30W fast charger managed to charge the battery from zero to about 90 percent in an hour, which again, is very quick.

Realme 6 Pro Camera:

The Realme 6 Pro has a similar rear camera setup to Realme 6, but with the depth, the camera swapped for a telephoto camera. There’s a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto camera with 2X optical zoom, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. In the front, we have a 16-megapixel primary camera and a second 8-megapixel wide-angle camera.
