Now lets talk on how the phone stacks up in market with cut throat competition in this category, as there are tonne of options available in this price range with very lucrative features and varying price and performance.
For all those Mi Fans and MI users this is really a great budget phone to have and as you have seen from the specifications that these phone packs in some decent processing power. Does the job for day to day use with ease and its 4000 mAh battery is a real stamina battery and as claimed by company can easily last you two days for lite to moderate usage of course at the end of second day you will be bit worried finding the charger. 

Display is clearly visible in sunlight and has 500 nits of brightness. Display of all MI phones is generally good enough and nothing much to complain about it. For all those display notch lovers you are going to have a feast for your eyes as this device has one. Although I don't like notches in display and It's my personal opinion that notch does not increase that much of real estate of screen and it seems a broken bit in continuity of  what ever you are watching on display making it a like a dent in brand new car with super fine paint job.   

Phone feels lighter as it actually is lighter then redmi note 5 pro. I will suggest you to go for bit further stretching your budget to higher RAM and ROM version as once you buy the phone you are pretty much locked for the amount of internal storage that comes with the phone although you can upgrade it to dedicated memory card slot without sacrificing any sim or dual sim functionality as this feature is real good and as specially in terms of Indian telecom market and Indian users scenario.

The cameras also capture quality images as well as record high-definition videos. Low light camera performance though is not that great but for the price at which the phone is available one cannot afford to demand that feature as Mi does have plethora of devices to sell all at once in a market it plays and so nothing much to complain about it there.

So if you are making your mind to buy one then go ahead and grab one as there is nothing wrong in getting one and you really get right value for what you pay.

NOTE: Don't confuse your self with Redmi Note 6 Pro  with one in review is Redmi 6 Pro. One mentioned prior is priced and categorized higher than Redmi series,  not yet launched in Indian market and no word on its availability as of now.
