Design and Display

Budget or not, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 has a stylish build and interestingly has a design modelled after premium smartphones but instead comes with a mettallic cover rather than a glass finish. Following the modern tide, the smartphone drops the touch buttons for on-screen ones. Also, there is the elegant slender build seen in the 18:9 aspect ratio accentuated by minimal bezels giving you enough screen for viewing.

Speaking of visuals, the smartphone’s display extends up to 5.45-inches stretching the bezels thin on all sides giving you up to 80% of the screen to body ratio. However, to make things affordable, the Xiaomi sports only 1440 x 720 pixels resolution and there’s no indication of a Corning Gorilla Glass protection so you might want to get a screen guard.
