    Answered By Venkatesh Marpally | 3 months ago
    6A & Ace are quad core A53 based mediatek chipset phones which are not meant for gaming(though 6A has more power). But advantage of Yu Ace is fingerprint scanner and 4000mah battery which most people prefer these days.

  • Does Xiaomi Redmi 6A have removable battery?

    Answered By Paaus Verma | 2 months ago
    The Redmi 6A does not have a removable battery. The non-removable battery helps the manufacturer create a sleek design, lightweight and good looking product. It also helps with recovering a stolen phone. A removable battery can be taken out by a thief to stop the phone from tracking its movement.

    To Transfer files from your phone to another device. 


    • 1. To transfer data from your phone to a Laptop
    •      Use the data cable that came along with your phone. Simply plug in your device and start transferring your data to your laptop.
    • 2. To transfer data from a phone to phone.

         There are many ways you can transfer your data like Using the Shareit app(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lenovo.anyshare.gps&hl=en), Bluetooth etc.

          Using the shareit app: Just download the shareit app on both the phones and open it. Then select the app, photo, the video you want to transfer from the list and press "Send". It will search for the nearby device. Once the device appears tap on that your file will be transferred.

  • How to hide or protect apps on Xiaomi Redmi 6A ?

    V

    Answered By Vaibhav Dutta | 3 months ago

    To hide or protect your apps I would suggest you use App Lock. Heres how.

    1. Download App Lock from the Google Play Store. When you first start the app, you will be prompted to set up an unlock pattern after which you need to provide an email ID for security and backup purposes



    2. You will then be taken to the main screen of the app. Under the Privacy tab, scroll down to find a list of applications that you can lock. Tap on the app name that you want to lock. The first time you lock an app, you will be prompted to grant App Lock Usage data access.

    3. Press the back button to go back to the main menu of App Lock. Now, you can lock any app that you want by simply tapping on the lock icon near its name. At this point, if you try and open any locked application, App Lock will prompt you to enter the unlock pattern that you first created. To make the app use the fingerprint scanner for verification purposes, head over to the Protect tab and enable the Fingerprint lock option.


       

      Now, whenever you open a locked application, you can either unlock it by simply verifying your fingerprint or by entering the unlock pattern. The fingerprints that you have registered for unlocking your device are the ones that will also work with App Lock.

      Here is the video guide to do the same
