Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite (Redmi 6 Pro) Specs


With Xiaomi's Redmi series, last year's "innovation" from Cupertino has reached the low-priced midrange smartphone market. The Redmi 6 delivers an outstanding performance in addition to – or perhaps despite – the notch in the upper third of the display. Our detailed review includes more information about the Xiaomi smartphone's performance and answers the question whether an import of this midrange smartphone is worth the effort.

Xiaomi's newest additions to the Redmi series were introduced at the end of June this year. Customers are able choose between the more powerful Redmi 6 Pro and a lower-priced version without the name affix "Pro". Of course, both models are rather similar to each other, but there are still some significant differences between the Redmi 6 Pro and the normal version.
The Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro has a Full HD+ panel with a resolution of 2280x1080 pixels and a display diagonal of 5.84 inches. A notch can also be found inside the IPS panel, housing the earpiece and the sensors, as well as the 5-megapixel front camera, which utilizes artificial intelligence for facial recognition. The phone's rear has a dual camera system, which also makes use of said AI features.
The midrange smartphone is powered by a slightly outdated Qualcomm SoC: a Snapdragon 625. It should still suffice for a competitive performance in the price range below 200 Euros (~$227), though. The permanently installed battery has a capacity of 4000 mAh.
The Redmi 6 Pro is available in three variants. The entry-level variant offers 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space at a price of about 130 Euros (~$148) in China. The import price was roughly 160 Euros (~$182) at the time of testing. Additionally, a version with 4 GB of RAM and a choice of either 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage is available. Online shops offer this version in a price range starting at 180 Euros (~$205), which is a difference of approximately 20 Euros (~$22) in comparison to the price within China. Users looking to avoid importing the phone from China can instead purchase the Redmi 6 Pro locally as an Android One version.
Considering the street price of about 180 Euros (~$205) for the top model, the competition includes the HTC Desire 12 Plus, Honor 7C, Wiko View Max, Motorola Moto G5s Plus, and the  Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro (Redmi Series)

Case - Convenient, High-Quality Xiaomi Phone



... color options
The Redmi 6 Pro's outward appearance is reminiscent of the Xiaomi Mi 8 design. The front of the case is made of scratch-resistant 2.5D display glass, which transitions into the 8.75-millimeter metal frame in a slight curve. The 5.84-inch IPS display is framed by narrow bezels at the sides. The top bezel is relatively narrow as well, causing a ratio of 80% between the display and device front.
The rear of the Redmi 6 Pro is made mostly of brushed aluminum and is available in five color options: red, pink, gold, light blue, and black. The vertically aligned dual cam setup protrudes from the case slightly, so that the phone wiggles during inputs on a flat table.
The build and material quality are on a really high level for a phone of this price range. Our only point of criticism was the slightly wobbly volume control buttons at the right side of the case. The pressure points are well defined and pleasantly crisp.
One-handed operation is possible thanks to the Xiaomi smartphone's low width of less than 72 millimeters. However, the phone is not all that pleasant to hold because of the slightly edgy metal frame.

Features - Still Using MicroUSB

Our test device's internal eMMC storage has a capacity of 64 GB, 51 GB of which is still available to the user after subtracting the space required by the operating system. Users in need of a higher capacity can expand the storage via microSD cards, but these cannot be mounted as internal storage. According to the manufacturer, the microSD card slot supports storage media of up to 256 GB. Since cards of that size are of the SDXC standard, even larger storage media should be accepted by the smartphone in the future without any problems.
The Redmi 6 Pro is still charged via a micro-USB 2.0 port on the bottom. Peripherals such as external keyboards or USB sticks can be connected via this port and USB OTG. Wireless transmission to other screens (Miracast) worked flawlessly in our test. In addition to a status LED for incoming notifications, the midrange smartphone is equipped with a fingerprint sensor and an infrared port. Currently, VoLTE is only supported for China Mobile, but this will hopefully be expanded to additional telecommunications companies as soon as an EU model of the Redmi 6 series (Mi A2 Lite) is released.
