Realme 6 review

GSMArena team, 1 April 2020.


You might say that Realme is like the Universe - endlessly expanding and full of surprises. Okay, that analogy may be too far off, but the company has once again defied the laws of budget phones with the new Realme 6 series and the headliner - the Realme 6. It's the cheapest 90Hz phone you can buy today. And it has a lot more to offer than just a high refresh rate screen.

The Realme 6's eye grabber is indeed the large 6.5" 1080p screen with 90Hz refresh rate and it's coupled by the gaming-friendly Helio G90T chip. And the 4,300 mAh battery is more than adequate. Oh, and the 30W fast charging is much appreciated.

Well, Realme 6 might be a budget phone, but that doesn't come at the expense of the camera department. On the back, you'd find a quad-camera setup with a 64MP primary, an 8MP ultrawide shooter, a 2MP macro snapper, and a 2MP depth sensor.

All sorts of connectivity options are available, memory expansion as well, and the whole thing is splash-proof.

Why? My realme 6 wifi connection in 2.4ghz is so low like one bar, but if I connect to 5g it's good. How do I fix this?
