realme 6i runs on the Android 10-based realme UI known for its’ enhanced experience true to the stock Android experience.

Concept of Real Design, realme UI resonates is inspired by real life – realme UI is designed with a focus on 4 elements – system colours, icons, wallpapers, and animations. In terms of colours, realme UI uses high-saturation and high-brightness to construct an authentic colour scheme, bringing a sense of vitality and freshness.

Customisable icons – realme UI has also introduced the icon customisation function allowing users to not only change the shape and size of the icons but have full control over internal graphic sizes of each icon.

realme UI with Quantum Animation Engine – In terms of system animation, realme UI is equipped with the latest quantum animation engine, which improves the screen fluency.  

To enhance the user experience realme UI features 4 customised trendy functions:

Focus Mode – Turning on the “Focus Mode” can help users isolate themselves from the outside world and comes with a preset soothing playlist featuring four built-in tunes that turns on automatically. The phone’s DND (Do Not Disturb), will also be activated preventing new notifications from swarming in.

Dual Mode Music Share – This feature is extremely useful if two users are trying to enjoy the same video or song at the same time from the same device. realme 6i can connect a pair of wireless earbuds and a wired earphone simultaneously, so two people can listen to the same song played from the same realme smartphone.

Three-finger screenshot gesture – Just use 3 fingers to take a screenshot, press and hold on screen, then swipe to capture the selected part of the screen. No more cropping is needed, and taking a partial screenshot is done with just one step.

Personal Information Protection – realme UI also aims to further protect the privacy of users, changing the way apps can access personal information. Turning on “Personal Information Protection” in realme UI enables the system to provide empty information pages when apps request access to a user’s personal information.

Light, fast and power-saving features & trendy functions – realme UI follows the latest Android 10, a system with light, fast, and power saving features. This has been further optimised in terms of fluency, power consumption and performance.
