Just bought an acoustic steel string a few months back, back then when I tried to press the frets it was hard but i got calluses and it didn't hurt anymore.(i still get some trenches on my finger tips if i play too long

Now I am trying to learn barre chords and its extremely impossible to do it...

At the 12th fret, distance from low e to fretboard was 0.6-0.7cm

Is that too high?

Yes.

If you buy cheap acoustics, this happens.

When you're a beginner you want your action to be pretty low to make it easier to play and as you get better you raise it to where you want

To the OP, your action does sound too high. If you can afford it you could probably get someone to do a general guitar setup on it which would make it play a lot nicer. That being said barre chords are pretty tricky for most people at first, and take awhile to get right.

Yep but ironically most "beginner guitars" are set up with ridiculously high action.
