Let’s check out the smartphone trade now. There are many realme smartphones available in the market. Inside realme’s catalog itself, there are many similar devices within the realme 5 series similar prices. Quick ahead simply 6 months later, we have now the realme 6 Professional.
Because the title suggests, this cellphone has just a few hits and some misses. Let’s discover out why.
This overview was supposed to return out earlier than the realme 6 review – however resulting from unexpected circumstances, it received swapped. So, there are numerous cross-references between that overview and this realme 6 Professional overview.
It’s good to see that realme is de facto sticking with their yellow containers with a easy design. A minimum of it’s distinctive and attention-grabbing.
Contained in the field itself, we have now just a few easy issues included:
- The realme 6 Professional itself
- TPU case
- 30W quick charger
- USB-A to USB-C cable
Right here’s a success. Total, I just like the design of the realme 6 Professional rather a lot. Wanting on the again, we have now this distinctive reflection sample that appears like a thunderbolt. It’s not going to shake your world or something – I simply assume that it’s cheesy. ⚡
But that fanciness is considerably deterred by the truth that realme included a smoked TPU case as an alternative of a transparent one. We are able to nonetheless see it via the case, however it’s very tough.
And total, the whole cellphone’s physique form is similar to the realme 5 Pro from 6 months ago. Even the digicam bump on the again is analogous, however the fingerprint scanner is moved to the aspect.
Connectivity & Ports
It’s no totally different from its predecessor truly. It nonetheless helps triple card slots, 5GHz WiFi for quicker speeds, however each NFC and IR blaster are nonetheless lacking.
On the backside, we have now the standard headphone jack, USB-C charging port, and the only bottom-firing speaker. Fairly commonplace for a mid-range smartphone of this present day.
For the realme 6 Professional, it comes with a 6.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD with 90Hz refresh fee. Wow, realme appears to be taking part in the pattern sport and hopping into the 90Hz refresh fee bandwagon too.
And it additionally has a pill-shape cutout on the high left nook of the display screen.
Nonetheless, I feel there are two points right here. First, due to what number of layers an IPS LCD display screen has, there’s a noticeable black glow across the selfie digicam cutout. It’s distracting.
Secondly, the chipset can’t deal with 90Hz in any respect. What it could possibly do is have your system apps, residence display screen, and perhaps Fb or Chrome run at 90Hz We’ll speak extra about that later.
The principle spotlight for the realme 6 Professional goes to be the cameras. They’re touting a complete of 6 cameras.
- Quadruple rear-facing cameras
- Most important: 64MP f/1.8 with PDAF
- Telephoto: 12MP f/2.5 with PDAF, 2x optical zoom
- Extremely-wide: 8MP f/2.3, fastened focus
- Macro: 2MP f/2.4, fastened focus
- Double selfie cameras:
- Most important: 16MP f/2.1
- Extremely-wide: 8MP f/2.2
Wanting on the digicam specs, it looks like realme took the criticism and eliminated the ineffective depth sensor in favor of truly usable cameras. Nonetheless, including extra cameras doesn’t essentially imply that it’s going to take higher footage.
As for the image samples, I counsel you watch the overview video on the high of this overview.
Most important 64MP digicam
It’s fairly good. The image high quality seems good and there’s mixture of saturation as nicely. The white stability is kind of okay.
As soon as we begin to have a look at the main points of the images – perhaps a zoomed-in 64MP image – the failings begin to seem. The noise discount is kind of robust and the main points are basically gone. The picture simply appears to be like fuzzy total.
Additionally, the realme 6 Professional is unable to keep up a comparatively non-shaky evening shot picture. The picture simply appears to be like smudged.
Extremely-wide angle digicam
It’s fairly okay. The general perspective of the image isn’t that distorted. Good job on the algorithm total. Nonetheless, the colours aren’t as punch as I’d like and the colours look a bit washed out.
Additionally, exterior of the middle of the picture, the chromatic aberration may be very apparent. That solely means realme makes use of an inexpensive high quality lens for its ultra-wide angle digicam.
The 2x optical zoom appears to be like just about similar to the primary digicam, simply zoomed in. Good high quality total.
Yea… it’s just about unusable. The photographs are very noisy too. Higher to take footage in 64MP and zoom it in.
Software program – Android 10 with realme UI 1.zero
It’s a reskinned model of ColorOS 7. Total, it’s principally only a facelift with some updates on the person interface. A lot of the parts and person expertise continues to be the identical as final technology’s ColorOS 6.
There may be one addition that I hate probably the most although – the app scanner factor. Identical to Xiaomi’s MIUI, any apps which are put in (though the Google Play Retailer) will undergo a scan. For realme’s case, there is no such thing as a option to disable this scanner. And realme even baked advertisements into this scanner.
It’s annoying and distasteful.
Efficiency & Gaming
I feel this one is one more miss from realme. The realme 6 Professional comes with this listing of specs:
- 6.6-inch IPS LCD with 2400×1080 pixels in decision
- 90Hz refresh fee
- Tablet-shaped cutout for selfie cameras
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G
- 8GB RAM
- 128GB of inside storage (expandable by way of microSD)
- 4,300mAh battery
- Android 10 with realme UI 1.zero
First, let’s check out the benchmarks first.
And right here’s the benchmark for VRMark. There’s a cause why I stated the efficiency of the realme 6 Professional is a miss. The Snapdragon 720G chipset can not even maintain 60fps in VRMark benchmark – what’s the rationale to incorporate a 90Hz display screen? To scroll Fb and the settings menu in 90Hz perhaps.
The realme 6 Professional can not run any video games on 90Hz. We downloaded a bunch of them – together with Subway Surfers, Shadow Battle 3, and even Temple Run 2. These video games are confirmed to run on 90Hz and 120Hz however the realme 6 Professional simply refuses to run on something past 60Hz.
Battery & Charger
The realme 6 Professional comes with a 4,300mAh battery. It may final for slightly greater than 12 hours and 30 minutes in our check utilizing 1080p 60Hz mode.
Nonetheless, once we converted to 90Hz and did the identical check once more, the battery life drops by almost 37%. That’s an insanely massive influence on the battery life, which signifies the incompetence of the GPU itself.
realme included a 30W quick charger with the cellphone itself. Regardless that it screams “high wattage”, the charging velocity isn’t significantly that quick because it nonetheless wants about 50 minutes to cost from 15% to 100%.
Wrapping up the realme 6 Professional overview
The realme 6 Professional has an extended listing of specs like 6 cameras and a Snapdragon chipset, 90Hz and whatnot.
For the value of RM1,399, I feel the value is manner too steep for what it has to supply. For me, between the realme 6 Professional and the realme 6, it’s higher to get the realme 6 as an alternative. We reviewed the realme 6 here – and it’s a much better deal overall.
