Xiaomi Redmi 6, comparative: this is against the Moto G6, Honor 9 Lite, Nokia 5.1 and the rest of the economic range Android

Xiaomi today renewed its most economical mid-range and its entry range with the new Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A . As we usually do every time a new contender is presented in the fight to become one of the big devices of its price range, here we bring you the comparison of the Redmi 6 against the Moto G6 , Huawei P Smart , Honor 9 Lite and the rest of mid-range mobile phones at the content price.

The Redmi 6 is characterized by being a smartphone with a manageable size, MediaTek processor inside, good memory and double rear camera . However, they are quite common characteristics to find and that is precisely why we want to review this comparison. See what are the strengths of Redmi 6 and see where there is something behind their rivals, which usually have slightly higher prices.

This is how the average range of content size is

Power Redmi 6

The Redmi 6 offers us a 5.45-inch screen in 18: 9 format . Nowadays all the devices of its price range already offer this aspect ratio, but where we do have enough changes it is in the resolution and in the concrete size.

The Redmi 6 does not stand out for its resolution , since it stays in HD + like others like the Galaxy A6. It is not difficult to find other models with screens slightly larger than 5.5 inches and that make the leap to FullHD + resolution. Xiaomi has decided that this feature is reserved for the Plus model.

Similarly, those 5.45 inches allow the Redmi 6 to lose 150 mm in height, so we are facing a mobile that competes against quite powerful mobiles but remains in a range of size normally reserved for the input range .

Xiaomi bets on MediaTek to further reduce the price

The Redmi 5 had a starting price of 899 Yuan, slightly more expensive than the 799 Yuan of this Redmi 6. In addition to having a smaller size, the Redmi 6 bets on a MediaTek Helio P22 eight-core processor. This serves to reduce the price but not so the power, because in fact other competing devices such as the Nokia 5.1 offer a Helio P18, less powerful .

Yes it is common to find in all mobile the combination of 3GB and 32GB and 4GB and 64GB of storage. In this case we have opted for the basic combination, which allows us to better compare prices and is also sufficient for most users.

Finally, the battery section is surprising. Absolutely all the phones we have chosen have 3,000 mAh . From this Redmi 6 to the Honor 9 Lite, passing through the Galaxy A6 or Moto G6. Undoubtedly an amount that allows manufacturers to incorporate the components they need. And that also shows another thing, nowadays you can not optimize much more the size / battery ratio. If you want more battery, you will do it at the expense of increasing the weight or thickness.

The double camera reaches all levels

Photography Redmi 6

One of the important features of the Redmi 6 is the incorporation of the double camera . We have a 12 megapixel main rear sensor and f / 2.2 aperture plus a secondary five megapixel sensor. Here each manufacturer bets on one side or on the other, but all are more or less at the same level.

The Moto G6 features a camera with a much wider aperture. While the Honor 9 Lite and Huawei P Smart already need a renewal at this point. Another different strategy is that of Samsung or Nokia, where instead of incorporating a double camera, they still offer a single sensor with more megapixels and better aperture .

For the front camera, the Redmi 6 stands out for offering artificial intelligence to achieve portrait mode. The Honor 9 Lite is the only one to add a double front camera, while the Galaxy A6 is equated to Xiaomi devices like the recent Redmi S2 that add a large front sensor.

Xiaomi Redmi 6: comparison table against the rest of the Android input range

Here we leave you with the comparative table of Redmi 6 against its direct competition. We have chosen slightly larger devices but they offer features that can compete, be it photographic, power and capacity. Xiaomi stands out for offering good specifications at size and reduced price , leaving the future Redmi 6 Plus to fight face to face against the most competitive mid-range.
