• Lower price

Realme 5 Pro:

• Better synthetic performance

Looking at the specs, the two devices are almost similar except for the display, memory, and battery.


The Realme 5 Pro is still the best choice for those looking for a high-resolution display at it has an FHD+ resolution with Gorilla Glass 3 compared to the Realme 6i’s HD+. The latter’s screen might be slightly larger, but the 0.2-inch difference is negligible.


The Realme 5 Pro uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 (10nm) chipset that was announced in 2019. The Realme 6i, on the other hand, has a MediaTek Helio G80 (12nm) that was announced in 2020.


In terms of RAM capacity, the Realme 5 Pro has a maximum configuration of 8GB, while the Realme 6i is at 4GB only. Storage-wise, both have a max capacity of 128GB, however, the Realme 5 Pro wins for having a faster UFS 2.1 compared to the Realme 6i’s eMMC 5.1.



While we’re yet to finish our review of the Realme 6i, we can take a look at their AnTuTu v8 scores from Kimovil.

Realme 6i – 203,078
Realme 5 Pro – 221,482

The Realme 5 Pro definitely wins in terms of synthetic performance, but the Realme 6i is not that far behind.

Operating System

The Realme 6i runs on Realme UI based on Android 10 right out of the box, the Realme 5 Pro, on the other hand, has ColorOS 6 based on Android 9 Pie, but can be upgraded to Realme UI with Android 10.


The Realme 6i wins in this aspect for having a larger 5,000mAh battery compared to the Realme 5 Pro’s 4,035mAh. However, the latter has a faster 20W VOOC 3.0 flash charge compared to the former’s 18W.


As of writing, Realme is offering the Realme 5 Pro (8GB + 128GB) for under PHP 12K. The price for the Realme 6i is yet to be announced but the company confirmed that it will be under PHP 10K., which makes it a more affordable offering for those in a tighter budget.


Although the Realme 5 Pro is still superior in overall specs, we can’t help but notice the improved hardware on the Realme 6i that it can go head-to-head with it in some aspects. Take note that the Realme 5 Pro is the most powerful in the Realme 5 series, while the Realme 6i is the entry-level offering in the new Realme 6 series.

What we can definitely take from here is that Realme has definitely improved this new mid-range series, and you can expect the incoming Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro to be more impressive. We’ll just have to wait for its arrival in the Philippines.
