The Xiaomi company, fortunately, doesn’t cheat on their customers – the manufacturer wants to attract new users to its side, and sells new smartphone at very low prices.
Recently, Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro was announced. It is the next generation of popular Redmi Note 5 Pro. Why you should pay more for the flagships, when you can buy an inexpensive smartphone with almost the same features?

The appearance of new smartphone will please everyone. It follows the latest trends on mobile market from 2018. Here you can see notch above the display and dual vertical rear camera. Yeah, we would like to see something new and interesting from Xiaomi, but this design is still good.
Redmi Note 6 Pro has a notch above the screen. Today every second smartphone has it, and many people are crazy of it! However, I can not understand why it is bad, because it looks much better than thick bezel on top.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro: Display
The main advantage of any modern smartphone is display. Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro is no exception – it has very good screen with diagonal of 6.26 inches and resolution of 2280×1080 pixels. The aspect ratio is 18:9. It is an excellent display for watching movies and serials, for battles in games and other things.

As for the memory, there is 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There is a slot for memory card. It is good news, because latest Xiaomi flagship devices doesn’t have microSD slot. As you can see from the image above, Redmi Note 6 Pro scores about 110 000 points in AnTuTu. It is very good result!
We also like the battery of the smartphone. It has a capacity of 4000mAh. This is enough for most users, and you should not worry that the smartphone unexpectedly will be discharged.

So, right now you can buy Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro for only $179.99. It is very attractive price for smartphone with modern design and powerful hardware, do you agree? The model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage will cost $229, which is still very good price.
