Realme 6i: Design

The Realme 6i is the latest mid-range smartphone from the brand that is known for offering affordable quad-camera smartphones. This device looks a lot like the Realme 6, which was launched in India a couple of months back. In fact, the specs sheet of the Realme 6i is also almost similar to the Realme 6. The most interesting fact about the Realme 6i is the display. The smartphone offers a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen with FHD+ resolution, protected by a 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass 6. This screen offers a peak refresh rate of 90Hz and is one of the most affordable smartphones to do so.

Realme 6i: Hardware Performance

The Realme 6i is based on the MediaTek Helio G90T SoC, the processor that also powers the Realme 6 and the Redmi Note 8 Pro. This gaming-centric chipset comes with a good CPU and GPU, offering improved gaming experience. Not just that, the smartphone also offers a minimum of 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. In terms of gaming or multi-tasking, the Realme 6i should not have any issue, just like the Realme 6. The G90T is a highly capable processor and can even run some of the demanding online games that would launch in the next few years and is also capable of supporting PUBG at HD graphics settings.

Realme 6i: Camera Performance

One of the major difference between the Realme 6i and the Realme 6 is the camera setup. Though both phones offer a quad-camera setup at the back, the Realme 6i has a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra wide-angle lens, 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor, whereas the Realme 6 has a 64MP primary sensor. The main camera on the Realme 6i can record native 4K videos, whereas the 16MP front-facing selfie camera can only record 1080p videos at 30fps. The camera performance of the Realme 6i will be pretty good, especially when compared to the similarly priced devices.

Realme 6i: Price To Specs Ratio

The base variant of the Realme 6i with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage with a dedicated microSD card slot is likely to cost around Rs. 12,999 in India and that is an awesome price for a phone that comes with a 90Hz refresh rate display and a gaming-centric processor. The smartphone also has dual nano-SIM card slots with support for 4G LTE and VoLTE on both slots along with Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi, so it covers all the modern connectivity aspects as well. This is the smartphone for those, who want a high-performance phone with a higher refresh rate display.

Realme 6i: Important Features/Highlights

The Realme 6i will have a massive 4,300 mAh battery with a USB Type-C port that supports fast charging. The smartphone will run on Android 10 OS with custom Realme UI skin on top. Besides the higher refresh rate, the screen will also offer a higher screen-to-body ratio, offering a more immersive experience to the users. The quad-camera setup on the Realme 6i will allow the users to take photos with different perspectives and this smartphone will be a good device for a multi-tasker and doesn't want a device that gets slower within the first few months of purchase.

Realme 6i: Verdict

The Realme 6i seems like a great mid-range smartphone that has some unique features like a higher fresh rate display, gaming optimized chipset, and more. So, if you are looking for a smartphone under Rs. 15,000 that offers the aforementioned features, then the Realme 6i is the only product that you can consider.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
