Poco X6 Pro Review: Total Bang for the Buck

Poco has been making good phones for a while, especially in the budget and mid-range segment. The

Poco X6 Pro takes good photos in daylight and in Night mode


The Macro mode is hidden away in the drop-down menu, and for good reason. It does take some decent close-up shots, but it’s nothing to be proud of. The Portrait mode is also nothing great, and I noticed a lot of issues with detecting the edges of an object. You can control the depth on the camera app even after taking a portrait photo.

There’s a 16-megapixel OmniVision OV16A sensor for selfies and video calling, which takes decent photos. The phone offers a portrait selfie mode, night mode, and AI beauty features. The front camera can shoot videos at 1080p up to 30 fps. 

The camera interface is easy to use, with all controls available on the Main screen. There’s a 64-megapixel mode that takes photos in full resolution with plenty of details. Slow motion video recording is also available with up to 120 fps support at 1080p resolution. A Night mode is available and does a decent job of capturing more light, but the results aren’t that much better than without Night mode. Overall, the Poco X6 Pro can take well-detailed but slightly saturated photos in daylight and do a good job even when things get dark. 

Poco X6 Pro Review: Verdict

After using the Poco X6 Pro for over a week, I would recommend the phone to anyone looking for a midrange beast. If you’re looking for a powerful smartphone under Rs. 30,000 that can play all your favourite games, has a great display, offers good battery life, and has a decent set of cameras, then the Poco X6 Pro is an excellent choice. HyperOS is also good; if you can ignore the bloatware, you’ve got a total bang for the buck. Apart from the camera performance and the IP rating, I’d recommend this over the Oppo Reno 11 Pro and the Redmi Note 13 Pro+.
