“Both are good” is the result from last week’s poll when we presented the Realme 6 and 6 Pro for your approval. These two ended up within less than a percentage point of each other.
The Realme 6 came up on top by the narrowest of margins. It looks like the company nailed the pricing and differentiation between the two models. People in the comments spoke highly of the MediaTek Helio G90T chipset and appreciated the inclusion of 30W fast charging on the non-Pro model.
One of the extras on the Realme 6 Pro is the 2x telephoto camera (12MP sensor), the other is a Snapdragon 720G chipset built on a more power efficient process (8nm vs. 12nm). Considering both phones have the same battery capacity, this should have a measurable impact on battery life.
As for the zoom camera, some see it as a good thing, others question its usefulness when it’s positioned next to a 64MP sensor. At the end of the day, whether you pick the 6 or the 6 Pro, Realme will be happy.
PS. the Realme 6i was announced this week for those on the lookout for something even more affordable than the Realme 6. It packs a larger battery (5,000mAh) with 18W fast charging, Helio G80T and a 48MP main camera.
