Which One Should You Buy ?

Well, these devices are basically for the people with mid and a low budget. Still, if you have the less budget then you have several other great options as well which are available in the market. Because looking at all the specifications of the Redmi 6 series I personally don’t think that you should go with any of them. But if you are a Mi fanboy or you love using a Mi phone then they are not bad at all. They are actually a good piece of tech but some things are not as great as compared to others in this price range.
