Redmi 6A features
- Right off the bat, the phone looks very casual and common, the display hasn’t changed dramatically and has an aspect ratio of 5.45 inches, enough for general use.
- The operating system is Android 8.0 (Oreo). The second best android operating system currently with the first being its successor, Android 9.0.
- With just one front and back camera, 13 MP and 5 MP respectively, the phone camera options are again very common.
- MediaTek Helio A22 Quad core Processor with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, which is expandable upto 256 GB. Not a lot of action going there. Basic low graphics games would do well on the device where as the heavy one’s would just lag and make the device slower.
- The battery backup on the device is also not very powerful. The 3000mAH battery will last you almost a day with heavy usage.
- Apart from pattern and pin lock in the security criteria the phone does not have a figure print sensor but has face unlock.
- Other features include a headphone jack of 3.5 mm and dual nano sim.
The phone is designed for nothing but casual usage that includes answering calls, surfing online and watching some videos here and there. It cannot hold more than that and hence, Redmi 6A price is established accordingly. If you are looking for a phone with better software or hardware than go for something that is above 10k in the smartphone price list.
