Camera:

The camera app of Redmi 6 Pro is simple and easy to use, by just swiping away the shooting modes. It has a dual primary camera setup having 12MP f/2.2 Primary Camera and 5 MP f/2.2, Depth Camera. Autofocus is decent in good light. The HDR also balances the exposure. The landscape shots in daylight are good and the colors were pleasing too.

In low light, the autofocus speed is not good, and it takes a little while for saving images. Details were quite mushy due to the noise reduction process, and colors were a bit dull. Portrait mode takes advantage of the secondary 5-megapixel camera on the back.

On the front, it has 5MP f/2.0 Primary Camera for selfie shots which takes only better selfies under good light. There is a lack of screen flash, and the low-light images turned out grainy.

Video performance was quite decent, and stabilization worked well, with no visible jelly effect around the edges of the frame. The maximum resolution at is 1080p.
