My Experience Using realme 6i in Soda Blue
Different Fonts you can buy or download for free.
This is useful for those who are used to navigating their old smartphones. If there is anything that I do not like about it, is it feels a little heavy compared to my other phone.
But the most important feature is the Personal Information Protection. Data is the most prized asset now, and realme ensures that user’s data are protected. By turning on “Personal Information Protection” in realme UI, the system will provide empty information pages when the apps are requesting to access the user’s personal information. This ensures your call history, contacts and
messages stay private, and prevents any information leak.
realme 6i Performance
The realme 6i is the first in the world and Philippines to sport the MediaTek Helio G80 SoC that guarantees a powerful system performance. It results to greater image quality and a more stable frame ratethat makes the realme 6i stand out while gaming.
While the realme UI which is based on Android 10, realme UI is well-built for an enhanced
and closer to stock Android experience. It is catered to the younger crowd to make the experience more fun and vibrant for them.
For its price, it functions well, without lags – even with a number of apps pre-installed in the unit.
One of the features I love about the realme 6i is the 3-finger swipe screenshot which I find really helpful for my Live Streaming gig.
The AI In-Display Camera allows you to smoothen your skin, adjust the chin, make the eyes bigger, or make your nose smaller.
One of the camera features I love about the realme 6i camera is the tool tip, which shows / describes the subject. It can be green leafy, text, etc.
Overall, the camera provides a really nice, natural output. The photos retain the subjects’ real color and saturation. It doesn’t look too edited, or defined. While the selfies are natural-looking and don’t look filtered – retaining the natural skin tone of the subject.
realme 6i Sample Photos
I am sharing some of the photos I took which are mostly taken with low lighting, or indoor. This is to test how the camera works especially with the actual setting and scenarios. Most of the phone cameras only perform well when used with natural light.
The realme 6i provides nice, decent photos. I am quite impressed with the Night Mode (see last photo).
