    Used the phone for about 6 days. Moved over all my data from old phone, and used it for texting and normal phone stuff. Always had error trying to contact my voicemail but didn’t know what was causing it. Today my wife said she tried calling me.. Funny, I didn’t get any calls. Tried calling her, nothing. Tried calling my carrier… unable. Did factory restore, all the fancy ways of fixing it, but nothing. I pop sim card back into my old phone to see if that is the problem, and immediately I get hit with voicemails and am able to call/receive call from wife.

    I didn’t realize calling was a problem since I mainly texted, and that seemed to work fine. Unfortunate, would be a 1* but I really liked the phone…

    After looking at several others smartphones, no way you can get this phone’s performance for the price. Lots of power, lots of RAM, lots of internal memory, and it charges to 100% real fast! (one charge a day is all I need). About the camera, I’m not a professional photographer so I’m not sure if it’s the best quality I can get, even tough I can say its enough quality for my needs, …or maybe its just me lacking some photography lessons. Altough, I can say video recording is awesome! In general, I was looking for performance, and Realme delivered.

  3. Aural 88

    I switched to the the Realme 6 Pro from a dying Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone.
    The change in power and speed was breathtaking.
    The glass back is nice to the touch and looks most attractive, there is a supplied plastic case, but I must say, it feels better without it – I remove it when there’s less of a risk of damage. Transferring data from my google account was simple, and I simply popped my sd card and sim into their respective places on the dedicated tray and I was ‘good to go’.

    A side by side comparison with my wife’s S8 edge showed the Realme to be faster at opening and running apps; however the screen quality of the Samsung S8’s OLED screen was far richer and its sound more immersive – that doesn’t mean the Realme 6 Pro isn’t good, its 90kHz LCD screen is bright enough for normal use in full sun and the colours and motion did not leave me feeling shortchanged in any way – but the images are ‘flatter’ when comapred to S8’s screen. A nice touch from realme is that a ‘screen protector’ is already pre-fitted; you do not need to buy another.

    As I am a lifelong ‘sound-man’, the native Hi Res sound support and the inclusion of Dolby Atmos were major features that influenced my decision when choosing this phone, both are great features for music/ videos on the go. The single phone speaker is good, but I am not one for phone speakers – I usually attach the phone to my music system for ‘proper’ sound, or listen through headphones – both of these activities are easily handled by the realme.

    To be honest, until now, I had never heard of this company. I’d seen cheap chinese imported smartphones some years ago – I really wasn’t expecting too much from the phone, despite the reviews on Amazon – but the Chinese imports now are in a different class, far superior! The Realme 6 Pro up ‘leveled up’ my low expectations of. ‘cheap phone – does the job to, ‘you what? – how opn earth did they manage this for the money?’. The big boys have to be making insanely, big bucks if this kind of sophistication is available at under £300.00.

    For me, highly recommended,, and…

    my wife now wants one.

    I shall start by saying this phone for the price, £300 at the time of this review, is absolutely superb. I have found a few aspects I am not happy about, but these really are minor and stem more from my absolute scrutiny of things I buy and probably most people would not be bothered or even aware of them.
    So, the phone itself is very fast and responsive and can cope with many tasks simultaneously without any lag or slowing. The screen is bright and I think has good colours. However, it seems to be that white is bright and white compared to others, but then red has an orange tint to it. I have compared it with other devices and it does better with white, but not so with red. A good test is the 4k parrot videos on YouTube with red macaws on. However, this is a £300 pound phone so it is not really expected to compete directly with a Samsung S20 or Sony Xperia 1 11 (both of which I have tried and I am far from impressed with).
    The camera is brilliant. Sharp, colourful and reasonably true colours. The 5x optical zoom is excellent. But, the night mode is utter rubbish. Not sure who really uses that or what for, but if that is something you want then this would be no good. Flash pictures are fine.
    The battery is very good. I can get 24 hours standby with 8 hours of screen on time from one charge and I have 237 apps on it with some doing background tasks all the time.
    The UI is good, although finding some things in settings is very difficult and I have encountered them by chance.
    The facial recognition is superb and can be used with any app (except banking). I have tried to con it by showing it pictures of me on another phone and it does not get fooled so it is fairly secure and will certainly stop inquisitive people accessing the phone. It actually reacts and unlocks quicker than I can get to press the fingerprint scanner which I shall add is good and so much better than the on screen scanners that have become fashionable recently.
    There is a lack of cases although it does come with a simple rubber one which actually gives adequate protection. There are some others available, but not many.
    I shall list the aspects that I found not to be good about it (and I have sent these to Realme):

    1. When plugging in a USB as an OTG I had to go into settings and activate it as it has a time limit of 10 minutes. This is inconvenient to do each time. However, this has been changed in a recent update and now has a button in the drawer to activate it. Why it is not just left on, I do not know.
    2. It has a gallery lock, but it is not incorporated in to the gallery app itself and you have to go in to settings and find privacy and lock etc. each time. As it is to do with the app, having it all in the same place would be ideal.
    3. The gallery app itself is very poor. There is no option to even list albums in alphabetical order and that to me is a basic error. I also think the app needs overhauling and improving a lot. There should at least be an option to make separate folders private and not just pictures. We may have folders that we want kept separate and not merged with other private pictures. However, there are many gallery apps that can be found on Playstore.
    4. More control over vibration. Currently there is no option other than it is on. Different vibration patterns and strengths for different notifications would be very useful.
    5. I cannot get it to register any delivery reports for sent text messages via the native messaging app even though I have activated it in settings, however 3rd party applications do provide delivery reports.
    6. It has a built in app lock which is an excellent feature and avoids having to install a 3rd party one. However, again like the gallery applock it is not a separate app and in order to add apps to it you have to go into settings and navigate to it. Once done though you do not need to go there again.
    7. The call history list is in American date format and cannot be changed.
    8. I have sent emails to Realme who have not responded so I can not praise their customer service.

    As I said, most of the above are finicky things I have noticed and others may not be bothered. With those aside, this is without doubt an absolutely brilliant phone for the price and I highly recommend it.

  5. The Phoenix

    Overall the phone is pretty decent. It charges very quickly and has plenty of storage. The pictures and video are not as good as the higher end phones, but are still pretty good.

    UPDATE: 5-31-2021 for an issue that began a several months ago. I should have posted about this issue in January.
    The phone has an inconsistent microphone that has nothing to do with Google voice or anything else. The only way to answer my phone is to answer and then switch the speakerphone on and off in order to speak without the speakerphone option. Doing that for every call is inconvenient. This phone is a waste of hard-earned money.

  6. Henry Cepeda

    This phone is amazing! For this price you can’t beat it! UI is clean and easy to use, it has a great high end value features like a crisp 90 hz frame rate lock option making the phone move supper smooth, camera with 4k capabilities and beautiful, detailed images. Not to mention the style of the back of the phone is quite appealing. it’s actually one of the first phones have found that doesn’t have any useless pre-installed applications. The built-in phone manager is great and keeps the phone clean and running at its best, it connect well to my huweie watch and every other Bluetooth device I have. Some of its customer features like the convince bar and screen off gestures make it a stand out! For.god sakes it dose split screen apks. And minimizing videos to go into to other apks is awsome! I might be a realme brand follower /loyalist if they keep this puppy updated and continue this great proudcut for great price thing up!

  7. Sol

    Excellent phone. So far so good. Love everything about it. Very fast (up to 90hz refresh rate), charges really quick (full charge within 50mins), battery lasts 2 full days (no gaming but doing the usual stuff- calls, text, email etc), some of the short cuts are amazing and the spec is as good as Samsung S20 but £200 cheaper. The finger print scanner and facial recognition work fine. Two things that may bother few people: 1. The size (6.6inch). If you don’t like big phone don’t bother buying 2. When you are outside and it is so sunny (like it had been lately) the screen brightness is not that great, even with me brightening it to the max. Hopefully Realme will fix this soon (with software upgrade) but it is not that much of a big deal for me to give it 4 stars

  8. Keno C.

    The Realme 6 Pro is definitely worth the asking price of just below $300. With a comfortably large screen, clean cameras, and great performance, it was a no brainer for me to pick this up. After having it for a few weeks now, I absolutely love the device and would definitely recommend it over some of the other options within this price bracket. The side mounted fingerprint reader is definitely a big selling point for me, as I don’t need to constantly smear the screen or reach around back to unlock my phone. There is also the facial recognition which works super quickly, but I use this feature a lot less.

    Mine didn’t come with a US adapter so I had to buy one, keep that in mind. Also, it is probably a good idea to protect your investment with a phone case to ensure it will last much longer as well. It can be very easy to drop the phone since it’s rather large and smooth, and of course accidents happen.

  9. Organised Chaos

    Bought this phone for an elderly relative who insists on buying latest gadgets which they can’t use, but had it for a few days to set up and test it and compared to my own few years old OnePlus 6? It’s an expensive downgrade.

    I bought it for £289 which is £10 less than RRP, I still think it’s too expensive for what it delivers, and I’m not sure what the financial situation for the majority of people is, but I don’t personally see this as ‘mid range’ price, £300 for a phone is quite a lot to me (Maybe I’m getting as old as my elderly relative?), but I expected more for £289!

    I will not compare the realme 6 Pro to my OnePlus 6, but it’s a bit thicker than I would like (Even without a case), not much bigger size wise however, and you do get a bit more screen so that makes it tolerable.

    Pros:
    1- Battery life, it’s impressive.
    2- Charging time, again, impressive.
    3- Certain software features are interesting and quite useful.
    4- Smooth operation, I’m not a gamer but downloaded a few racing games and set graphics quality to high to test it before giving it to the owner and it didn’t freeze once.
    5- Cameras are impressive, but then again it’s 2020, and it is an expensive phone.
    6- NFC. (Again, it IS an expensive phone).
    7- Pre applied screen protector?
    8- It’s a new phone, which always gives a short lived pleasure?

    Cons:
    1- Quality, as many have already mentioned, it does feel plasticy (Both back and front, but please note you do get a pre applied screen protector, so maybe that’s why screen feels plasticy? I hope so!).

    2- Thickness, I tried to take a picture to show how bulky it is, but let me put it this way: you’ve got the phone, then there’s the screen popping up around 1-1.5 mm on top of it. (And quality issues again, could see some ‘glue’ like leaks on the screen panel).

    3- Software:

    A: I always uninstall/disable almost all Google’s apps before starting using the phone (Specially Chrome, Drive, Games, Movies, Music, etc.), but this phone? Can’t disable Chrome as it’s not an option any more (Be it Android feature or realme feature, it’s an annoying one).
    B: I couldn’t find Google Drive on the app list, when I went to the app drawer, it was there. Now I don’t want to sound paranoid, but it’s one thing to prevent me from disabling an app, but it’s a completely different story if I can’t even see the app in the first place. It does make me wonder what other apps are installed and running in the background that I do not know about? Do I trust this phone for my own use? Definitely not.

    4- Lack of notification LED: That’s probably me just being picky, but it’s handy to have it.

    5- WiFi: Decent overall performance, but definitely weaker antenna than the one on my ageing OnePlus 6.

    Overall verdict:

    You can see there’s more pros than cons, but the cons (Specially ‘dodgy’ software options) are a bit worrying for me personally. I’d say give it a go and try it for yourself, but wait till this phone is reasonably priced (£250 or less).
    ———–

    Update 1:

    My relative is still using the phone and it’s performing quite well and as intended, it’s also getting regular updates and the charging time seems to be impressing my relative every time they charge their battery.

    If you’re looking at this phone, at its current £299 price however, or even at its lowest price, £279, and if you’re not too bothered about the Micro SD card slot, then I would strongly recommend you to take a look at realme’s X50 5G launched at £299 (Will probably go lower in a few weeks). Or the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro selling for as low as £205 at some point, with almost the same specs.

    There are better alternatives out there, you just need to shop around.
    ———–

    Update 2:

    Seems like my review, and personal opinion about Google’s trend to follow Apple’s footsteps to have their users unable to remove their software from their phones is attracting a lot of criticism and personal attacks.

    So just to clarify, I never said I didn’t like Google, in fact, I have been an Android OS user since its early launch and apps like Maps and Gmail are lifesavers for me, the only thing that I am trying to do is to avoid being fully reliant on Google’s own apps and services for every action I take during my day, if anyone is happy to do that, then I’m pleased for them.

    With every update or a new Android version released, Google seems to be trying to reduce any control users have over their own handsets, which, for me personally, was the main advantage point against other options like Apple’s OS. Losing that advantage point leaves Android with a lot to be desired for me, that’s all.

    Back to the handset itself which is the main issue for the review, it is still functioning as intended and continues to impress, I still think it’s overpriced though.

  10. AmazonDoug

    So far so good. Still learning how to use this phone but almost any phone has to be better than the LG V20 which I had before. Anyway, the phone was delivered on time and it has been a great improvement so far. I haven’t tried the face recognition yet but the fingerprint reader works well and the battery life is great. So far it might get to 60% at the end of the day for me. Even if it gets lower the recharge time is about an hour max to get to 100%.

  11. Caleb

    I really don’t like that the alarm clock does not let you set it for different days of the week, and repeat each morning. This has been a stock function of an Android alarm since I can remember…. I had to download a app with ads to have a decent alarm clock.
    The phone is nice, but has it quirks. I would probably try a different one if I could do it over again.
    The camera is nicest I had on a phone, but all the additional lenses are more of a gimmick imo.

  12. Cameron

    So far the battery lasts less then a half day of harsh use , along with being glitchy on youtube and a few other basic apps. Another flaw is the finger print scanner and lower volume button are too close to the same hight I keep accidentally taking screen shots. The fast charger is nice though along with the free case although temporary and nice storage for apps and other stuff.

  13. Mr J

    The phone was a “upgrade” from my Samsung note 8 as it was beginning to RIP. I looked around for GREAT value for money phones and came across, almost by accident, this phone.. I did some research and fount out this company’s big brother/father is the same company that does oppo and OnePlus? And having used OnePlus before (before they became flagships not flagship killers) I felt in safe hands

    The phone is SERIOUSLY good value for money x it’s a nice screen to bezel ratio.. the first I’ve had with a hole punch/notch and the back OMG that back 🥰😍 so pretty damn gorgeous..

    In the box you get a case (thankfully) and a pin – the pin is admittedly the worst part of it all as it feels like it’s gonna bend and break when changing the SIM and SD card xx

    The face recognition is in my opinion better than Samsung’s. It’s got a side fingerprint scanner which is still taking some getting used to xx and the charging time 😮 insane (100% in about a HR in my usage)

    So yeah if you’re looking for a phone.. don’t want Samsung and want something seriously good value for money… Can NOT go wrong with this
