In this price range, Redmi 6 pro camera performs very well. In the daytime, the photos come out fairly sharp and crisp. There’s a noticeable shutter lag, and also the lack of optical image stabilization means that you actually need to hold the phone steady for a stable shot. There’s also considerable noise in photos taken inside and in low light conditions.
The portrait mode works properly enough. it is not pretty much as good as what we have seen in the Mi A2 but does the job well enough. the edges are blurred more or less consistently, although the bokeh itself appearance forced and artificial sometimes.
The 5MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture does an okay job at selfies. generally, in smart lighting conditions, you’ll manage quite rich and vibrant selfies. There are in fact artificial intelligence shenanigans in the AI portrait and AI beauty modes if vanity is your thing.
So Overall the camera of Redmi 6 Pro works well but it’s not great but it’s better than most of what’s offered in this price range.
Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro Battery
