Is It Worth Buying POCO X6 Neo?

The phone comes with a premium design and excellent 108Mp Primary Camera Setup. Moreover, it boasts the powerful MediaTek Dimensity 6080 SoC which is built on 6nm processes. However, it is not the best and gaming-friendly processor but you can do multi-tasking and light gaming on it.

Surprisingly there is a 108Mp primary camera on the rear side which allows excellent photos, unfortunately, you can’t shoot 60FPS video with this setup. There is a 16Mp shooter also on the front side that allows the same 1080p Video recording at 30FPS mode.

The exciting thing is the company boasts a 5000mAh large battery and a 33W fast charger in the box that gives you a long-lasting battery lifespan. It is running on the latest Android 14 Operating System which is surprisingly unbelievable.

A few things we are disappointed with are— It does not come with the IP68 Water Resistance, it has a Standard Chipset according to current trends, Supports UFS2.2 storage type only, No 60FPS video recording. These things should be available because its rival phones Realme 9i 5G and Galaxy F15 also give great performance.


The Realme 9i and Galaxy F15, both perform great with system stability. But, if you give me the option to buy a phone between these phones then definitely I will prefer first POCO X6 Neo, then Galaxy F15 5G then Realme 9i 5G.

PhoneOverall Ratings By Author
POCO X6 Neo8/10
Galaxy F15 5G7/10
Realme 9i 5G5/10

The reason behind that is POCO X6 Neo has all the necessary features that we need for our daily work while Galaxy F15 has a slightly less powerful chipset and Realme 9i 5G has optimized performances but lacks features like Gyro, Fast RAM Speed, etc.
