Xiaomi might not be a name you know, as it has only recently started selling phones in the UK, but it’s a name you should know, as it excels at offering great phones at relatively low prices, with the Xiaomi Redmi 6A being an example of one of its lower-end (and exceedingly cheap) handsets.

This phone has a 5.45-inch 720 x 1440 display, a pixel density of 295 pixels per inch, and a tall 18:9 aspect ratio in line with higher end handsets. It also keeps bezel to a minimum, so the front is almost all screen.

Another feature you’d expect on higher end phones is the Redmi 6A’s face unlock feature, which lets you unlock the phone instantly, just by looking at it.

The Xiaomi Redmi 6A also has a slim 8.3mm thick build and while it’s clad in plastic it looks like metal.

The rear camera meanwhile is a 13MP one with phase detection autofocus (PDAF) allowing it to lock on fast, even when the subject is moving. It’s capable of some good shots too, especially if you make use of HDR.

Around the front there’s a 5MP snapper with both a portrait mode and beauty effects, so it’s as feature-packed as selfie snappers on higher end phones.

There’s an energy-efficient quad-core processor keeping all this running, while the Redmi 6A’s 3,000mAh battery should keep you powered up all day. The Xiaomi Redmi 6A also has a microSD card slot, so you can boost the included storage, and with all that it comes in at an entry-level price.
