Bought 2 of these for my parent's house at 3k each, glad to see prices of WiFi 6 routers are coming down:

Based on my initial tests, on a 200Mbps connection, I was getting almost full speed at 2m away from router but with 2 walls in between. Airtel's Nokia modem or another 4 antenna Dlink router that we have can't do that. This was at 5/6GHz. App is fine. No option to have just 6GHz enabled, its 2.4GHz or 5/6GHz.

Great!
Could you also tell us why did you buy 2 and how are you going to config them together?

Modem gets the internet from fibre, then using a LAN wire first router will be connected for WiFi (BSNL's modem has shit WiFi). Second router can be connected wirelessly or wired to the primary router. For my testing, I configured 2nd router as a wireless extender. So my parent's home is a duplex, so 1 router will be on each floor, LAN cabling was done inside the walls, so will connect 1st & 2nd router via wire.

The DLink's app was good enough to configure them. I had to turn off WiFi mesh on first router as it was transmitting in 2.4GHz band. When I configured 2nd router as wireless extender, it took WiFi SSID of 1st one & finally I was seeing only 1 WiFi. The WiFi switching based on promixity to router was working fine, so works as expected for me.

Not all routers support WiFi extender feature. I was initially considering TP-Link Deco M4 set of 2 for 7k, but this had WiFi 6 as well, so bought this instead.

I agree, it's not universal stuff. But it is convenient indeed. Also, WiFi 6 router at 3k is a good deal for futureproofing.

Even tp link routers like archer c6 supports mesh but with only tp link routers Too so that feature is getting common day by day.

Yes it is convenient but it also locks you into that particular brand of router which seems to be the main objective behind many companies pushing such "mesh feature" over wds nowadays.
