So far, the Redmi 6 has yet to live up to this on either front. It supports all the LTE bands I need, and it is a surprisingly durable phone for its price. I have managed to get water in this phone twice since I’ve owned it. Both times the phone would get stuck in a boot loop, but after awhile it would shrug it off and continue to work like nothing ever happened. I’ve verified full functionality with benchmarks and diagnostics, too, so this isn’t just perception. You can also look up the video of this phone cracking walnuts with its screen if you need any more reassurance that this is not a phone that reflects its price tag.
Additionally, if you are worried about GPU performance being lackluster, don’t be. While the GPU benchmarks on this phone don’t exactly impress, in practice it is more than enough to handle most things you can throw at it. PUBG Mobile on low settings runs mostly fine, with only occasional hiccups. The CPU is ahead of the curve in this price range, so keep that in mind, as well. Emulated Sega Saturn games in Yaba Sanshiro actually run better than they do on my Moto G6.
MIUI is a mixed bag, admittedly. Thankfully, you can run your own launcher on top of it with negligible impact on performance. I use Nova Launcher to retain a stock-ish Android feel for the home screen and app drawer, but use MIUI for its highly customizable theme engine. The result is a phone that looks quite unlike any other, a huge plus if you’re like me and like things to look sleek and orderly. You will have to spend some time to find a good enough theme, but once you do, you won’t ever want to go back.
Aa far as form factor and features go, again, this phone is better than you’d be led to believe. People have complained about the rear mounted speaker and that the rear of the phone is made of plastic, but neither of these have proven to be troublesome just yet. It helps if you get a case, too. The screen is decent, nothing special but it won’t be an eyesore for the vast majority of people. MIUI also allows you to set color temperature, which is a nice feature I wish was built in to more phones. The only complaint I have in regards to the screen is that the aspect ratio does make the phone feel a little long and makes pressing buttons towards the top of the phone a bit of a chore.
The camera is acceptable, nothing special but it gets the job done. I do recommend keeping the glass in front of the lenses clean, as there has been noticeable streaking in some pictures I’ve taken with it. Otherwise, it’s not bad, but don’t expect to win any photography awards with it, especially in low light.
Overall, I can’t find much wrong with this phone, especially for the price. One thing I will say is that you need to be careful when purchasing accessories for this phone, as I’ve already had one instance of ordering something that was listed as being for this phone that was actually made for another. Past that, I can’t recommend this phone enough. Xiaomi has won a loyal customer.
I am using Nova Launcher as an overlay and I disabled and or deleted as much of the included apps as I could. I did not create a Mi account either. I do like all the opinions that settings has. Far more then a typical att phone. Developer mode does work as well.
With all my typical apps loaded I have 52+ gig’s left in on board memory. Mind you I’m not a gamer so not super memory intensive. Charger was the India / EU charger but a usa 115 adapter was included. ALL in ALL, this is a great phone for a reasonable price. Very happy with it.

Too many Ads, especially in the File Manager. Pop ups everywhere. This makes me afraid and don’t feel secure.
