📱Xiaomi Redmi 6A – The ultimate 2021 Review – Best price in UAE

The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Redmi 6A

The Xiaomi Redmi 6A is an older model, having been launched in 2018.
The overall quality of this smartphone is average; as it is very affordable, it can be a good choice just to save a little.

Main results

The Xiaomi Redmi 6A arrived on the market with Android 8.1.0. In the meantime it has received updates and Android 9 is now available. Although new versions of Android has been released, this version is still fairly recent.
The 5.5″ screen has an appearance in line with that of its competitors, but it is very quick to react to commands.
One of the weak points of Xiaomi Redmi 6A is the low battery life: in our usage scenario, its 3000 mAh allow it to reach just 21 hours, which is below average.
The 21.4 GB of actual available internal memory (32 GB declared) may be not enough to store our data, but we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered quite robust.
Models in this price range are usually not very powerful: this phone performs slightly better but is still not recommended for high performance tasks, such as some video games.
It is a dual SIM model, so it is possible to insert and use two SIMs at the same time.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.
