The variety of Android phones I’ve had cross my desk for many years is staggering. On the contrary, the variety of low-end Android phones that I’ve discovered deserving of customer dollars has actually been, well, far less.

So, when T-Mobile sent me their REVVL 6 Pro to examine, I presumed, provided it’s yet another Android phone targeting the bottom end of the expense spectrum, this phone would sign up with the long list of “great shot” phones I’ve considered not worthwhile of customer dollars.

I was happily amazed.

I do wish to beginning this by stating the REVVL 6 Pro is quite a budget plan gadget. Due to the fact that of that, you can not anticipate it to carry out like, state, a Pixel 6 Pro It is, in no chance, on the very same level. However, this brand-new gadget is remarkably strong. And provided the expense is just $21999 for a 6.82″ screen Android phone, it might be a video game changer for a great deal of customers.

The specifications

To start with, let’s have a look at the specifications for the REVVL 6 Pro which clock in at:

  • CPU: MediaTek Dimensity 700
  • Display: 2.5 D Glass, 6.82″ HD+V- notch performing at 720 p
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128 GB
  • Rear Camera: 50 MP Main + 5MP Ultra-wide + 2MP Depth and 2MP Macro.
  • Front Camera: 16 M FF.
  • Battery: 5000 mAh with Wireless charging *.
  • USB-C
  • NFC: Yes
  • Security: Face and finger print sensing unit
  • Connectivity: 2.4 G/5G WiFi, 802.11 a/b/g/ n/ac
  • I/O: 3.5 mm earphone jack
  • OS: Android 12

That’s not a bad set of specifications. Among the most essential bits in the list is the CPU. The MediaTek Dimensity 700 has 8 cores performing at 2200 MHz and has an AnTuTu benchmark rating of294507 For contrast, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 has 8 cores at 2200 MHz and an AnTuTu rating of254669 Naturally, if we compare that to the current Snapdragon CPU (8+ Gen 1) with a rating of 3120173, it ends up being clear the REVVL 6 Pro CPU is quite on the low end of the spectrum. To put this into viewpoint, the AnTuTu rating for the Pixel 6 Pro CPU is 716898 and the existing least expensive AnTuTu benchmark rating is the Kirin 960 at 58685.

So, although the Dimensity 700 is no place near the bottom of the barrel, it’s similarly far gotten rid of from the top of the class.

How does it carry out?

Well, the REVVL 6 Pro does not carry out like a $21999 phone. I purposefully checked the phone for a couple of days prior to I looked at either the specifications or the cost. When I lastly did look at the details, I was happily amazed. Prior to understanding what I was handling, I would have put the REVVL 6 Pro in the mid-price variety of the Android spectrum. When it ended up being clear I was handling a really affordable gadget, the lag I discovered in the UI was, suddenly, not a problem.

Had the REVVL 6 Pro been a real mid or flagship phone, I would have instantly shrugged it off as a non-starter. At $21999, this phone is a take. It runs extremely well, uses a complete day of battery life, provides you lots of internal storage, has a dazzling (albeit a rather low-resolution) screen, and (much to my surprise) does not consist of the exact same level of bloatware we’ve all pertained to anticipate from such gadgets.

In truth, with concerns to the UI, the REVVL 6 Pro felt extremely comparable to the Pixel 6 Pro. It’s tidy and as near to the straight-up Android experience I’ve pertained to depend upon from Google’s Pixel gadgets. If you’re a fan of pure Android, the REVVL 6 Pro will not dissatisfy.

In continuing my contrast to the Pixel 6 Pro, I discovered the size of the gadget to equal my go-to phone extremely comparable ( Figure 1).

I will confess that I’m not a substantial fan of substantial phones. It took me rather a long time to get utilized to the size of the Pixel 6 Pro and I ‘d still rather return to the smaller sized gadgets. That stated, if you choose a bigger gadget, the REVVL 6 Pro has you covered. Another good feature of the REVVL 6 Pro is that it does not (in any method) feel inexpensive. The construct quality of this gadget far exceeds its rate. This phone is constructed like a tank.

Wireless charging

Although the REVVL 6 Pro lists that it can do cordless charging, I might not get the function to deal with my Pixel Stand. I’m uncertain if that’s an outcome of utilizing a Pixel Stand or cordless charging just not dealing with my evaluation system. And provided the Pixel Stand is the only wireless charging station in my belongings, I had no other way of confirming this. Nevertheless, the phone does list that it supports the function.

The Camera

These days, you can’t manage with an inferior cam. Individuals like taking pictures with their gadgets and the 2nd a business launches a phone with a bad electronic camera, they’ve doomed themselves. In this arena, I have 2 criteria– the Pixel 6 Pro (at the top) and the Essential PH-1(at the bottom).

I can gladly state the REVVL lives directly in the middle of those 2 gadgets. And although the REVVL 6 Pro can not withstand the spectacular electronic camera in the Pixel 6 Pro, it’s not that shoddy.

The REVVL 6 Pro electronic camera does not consist of a Portrait mode and rather selects what they call Live Focus. This enables you to change a pseudo depth of field result. I discovered the Live Focus to be extremely struck and miss out on however with some mindful setup (and excellent lighting), you can get a quite excellent result ( Figure 2).

Who is the REVVL 6 Pro for?

This is simple. If you’re under the restraints of a tight spending plan and are searching for an Android phone that will serve you well, the REVVL 6 Pro may be precisely what you’re searching for. It likewise might make a perfect phone for teenagers. If you require high efficiency from your phones, look in other places as this gadget is no place near flagship level. The T Mobile REVVL 6 Pro is an incredibly remarkable gadget, offered its $21999 cost point.
