If the names weren"t a hint already, the two phones are actually very similar, with the Redmi 6A being the cheaper of the two and featuring some key cutbacks to achieve the more aggressive pricing.

We"ll be taking a look at both of these simultaneously today, pointing out the similarities and, more importantly, the differences, as we go along.

Disclaimer: You might notice that this review is shorter than usual and doesn"t include some of our proprietary tests. The reason is it has been prepared and written far away from our office and test lab. Still, we think we"ve captured the essence of the phone in the same precise, informative and detailed way that"s become our trademark. Enjoy the good read!
