Poco X6 Neo hands-on review

by TexasDigitalMagazine.com


The Poco X6 Neo is the most affordable model in the X6 series. The other models in the range, the X6 and the X6 Pro, borrow bits and pieces from Xiaomi’s Redmi range of devices. However, the X6 Neo, for all intents and purposes, is essentially the Redmi Note 13R Pro with a different name. Since we haven’t looked at that model either, this is a good opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.

Being the cheaper model in the series, the X6 Neo loses some of the niceties of the more expensive models. You get a single usable camera at the back and the chip gets downgraded to a MediaTek Dimensity 6080. Still, there are some interesting things to look forward to, such as the design, which is claimed to be the thinnest for a Poco device, the 120Hz AMOLED display, and the lossless 3x zoom on the 108MP camera.

For a starting price of INR 15,999 (~$192), it is a fair bit cheaper than the X6 and X6 Pro. Let’s see what you are getting for that money.


The Poco X6 Neo comes in the usual black and yellow Poco packaging. Inside, you will find the phone, a 33W charger, and a USB-A to USB-C cable.

A black silicone case has also been provided in the box. The case doesn’t add much to the thickness of the phone and has a convenient cutout for the fingerprint sensor on the power button, which makes it quite easy to locate the button without looking. There’s also a flap for the USB port that’s a bit too stiff. However, the case leaves quite a large opening at the back for the camera for purely aesthetic reasons, which leaves the area exposed to damage.
