The Redmi Note series phones have a distinctive and hugely successful place in the Indian mid-range, having almost redefined it and made it their own in the past couple of years. The Note 5 Pro, launched earlier this year, refined the formula of performance, longevity and price to a point where Xiaomi saw no reason to upset the apple cart when launching its successor.
And so it is with the iterative Redmi Note 6 Pro, an impressive mid-ranger made slightly less so due to direct comparisons that are inevitable with the Note 5 Pro it replaces. For the same asking price, you get a slightly larger notched display and an improved camera experience but the exact same beefy battery and Qualcomm chipset. This is not a phone for those with the previous model, but for those looking to upgrade to a no-nonsense reliable performer that doesn’t break the bank.
