Anonymous, 06 May 2017if 3.5mm jack is dead, why most all those expensive HiFi still provide 3.5mm jack?I will always buy a smartphone with a headphone jack.
They can take theirs dongels and showe them up their asses

bobstarsg, 08 May 2017we do have wireless earphones / speakers now, so whats the fuss !??Pretty lame logic...
bobstarsg, 08 May 2017we do have wireless earphones / speakers now, so whats the fuss !??Shouldn't be forced into using Bluetooth headphones when they; a) Normally cost more b) Connection quality isn't as good as wired ones (in my experience atleast) c) You have to charge them.
I'd much rather be able to plug them in over getting a slightly longer battery (which will still need charging every day)

Calculations show that the capacity of the battery in Xiaomi phones is related to the size of the case. For instance, the Redmi Note 4 has a 22% bigger case than the Mi 6 and its battery capacity is 23% bigger. Hence, removing the 3.5mm jack from the Mi 6 has done absolutely nothing for battery capacity. Why do manufacturers need to lie to justify ditching the 3.5mm jack? Is it because they are ashamed that the real reason is to copy Apple? But Apple did so for financial reasons, in order to sell more of their expensive wireless AirPods. Also, Apple can force its fans to pay for an adapter unlike Android manufacturers who will need to bundle it free. It is disgraceful that they feel that they have to be Apple copycats in order to stay relevant.
I would happily take the headphone jack over the extra 350mah battery. That way I dont have to worry about charging one more extra bluetooth device just to listen to my music. Couple that with the low quality music over Bluetooth devices, its a no-brainer for me. You need to convert the digital signal to analog signal inside that wireless headphone. So, production of more circuitry, more resource wastage, more mercury battery production and more e-waste. So, no thank you. I want my headphone jack back, don't want you to make more money by selling wireless headphones, which we obviously don't need. but the need is created by the industry.
Anonymous, 06 May 2017lol, many of that phones from those years still not support mp3, especially early 2000.. what ... moreYes they do. The SE K700, K750 and K8x0-series can play MP3 perfectly! They even have FM-radio (with recording)
Xiaomi increased the battery capacity of the Mi 6 by 12% over the Mi 5. About half of this was due to increasing the size of the case. The other half may have been achieved using a denser battery or else itÂ’s fake since itÂ’s very easy to lie about battery capacity. There is no space saving from eliminating the 3.5mm jack. Manufacturers think that we are stupid. If they really have our convenience in mind, they would make the battery removable so that we can carry a spare. This would be preferable to having to carry an adapter to make up for loss of the 3.5mm port.
The Cat, 05 May 2017They have excellent internal DACs. You can buy external DACs for around $100 that blow any pho... moreThe external DACs use the same chips and amplifiers so your argument is unvalid. It depends on the Controller + DAC + Pre-amp combo of the device/smartphone/external DAC, but they all use the same suppliers with the same chips. Like how most smartphones use Qualcomm for socs, and it just really depends with how much RAM it's​ paired with, the storage speed, etc.
Anonymous, 05 May 2017Then why's there a difference in between their quality? Dac is not the only aspect of audio qu... moreWell, DACs are parameterised and their sound signature can be configured. Moreover, it is not the only link in the audio chain (the is usually a streaming controller and pre-amplifier coupled to it) and their noise levels all add to the audio stream. Not to mention it has to be properly laid out to avoid interference, and the output of the DAC is also completely dependent on the stability of the voltage source.
So that's why they sound different. And the fiio uses a really high quality DAC, so it really is no suprise that it sounds good. However, I doubt it "blows" most smartphones out of the water. Most likely it just includes a pre-amplifier which isn't usually included in smartphones (meaning - it's louder and adds to the unique sound signature, but not necessarily better audio quality).
Well the Mi5 was a letdown , camera is shit, reviews said that not much has changed . THis is just one more reason not to buy this... Xiaomi is over extended. Software is going down the shitter at a rapid pace....
Clownonymous, 05 May 2017why should you care if it has headphone jack,some of the old phones from 2000-2010 didnt even ... morelol, many of that phones from those years still not support mp3, especially early 2000.. what did you expect from headphone during that era? hearing your polyphonic ringtones?

Well, I wanted and looked forward for a mi6... to get... As I already own a mi5 and I love it... Well no more Xiaomi can rest assured I will not buy mi6 this year... Maybe mi6pro if it is worth it, specs wise... Otherwise I'll go with one plus for this year and see how it is...
FYI Samsung can rest assured, the s8 although nice it's way too expensive for my wallet and yearly phone upgrade
Ya, bigger battery can be the excuse for those huge top and bottom bezels too. With those bezels couldn't they manage to include there and facing front the stereo speakers? Must not be great stereo effect to play a game or watch a videoclip with both speakers pointing to the same side.
2018 = mi7 loudspeaker will be removed in favor of larger battery capacity of 3500mah, larger than its predecessor.
2019 = mi8 camera will be removed in favor of larger battery capacity of 3750mah, larger than mi7
2020 = mi9 screen will be removed in favor of larger battery capacity of 4000mah, larger than mi8.
solution? mi provided usb-c converter to any types of parts you need. usb-c to screen, usb-c to speaker, usb-c to camera
I heard a rumour that iPhone 8 is going to ditch the lightning port because iPhone 8 is going wireless charging. The best part is wireless charger is sold separately. No head phone port n no charging port is the future trend. Apple is gonna suck all your money.
