Lola, 27 May 2017If you want small screen and new soc mi6 for you and if you want bigger screen and last year s... more...the day that 5.15 inches (basically a phablet by the standards of any other era) is called a small screen.
BTW I had called it back in 2010 (w iPad's release), "that's the natural progression, people would love the tablets and forget the phones".
Only twist is that we're still calling them phones, but increasingly they have search mini tablet size (basically a pocketable tablet), phone calls is a strong minority of their function, thumb use has almost gone the way of the dodo (the primary way to control cordless phones since the 1980s) and they're increasingly not pocketable (another attribute of " cordless phones").
The age of the tablet is here. Basically why traditional tablets are dying. Mini tablets have eaten their lunch.

well,514$ price,480$+34$ shipping in EU warehouse,so no customs fees no VAT,not exactly cheap by any standards,possibly best bang for your buck right now..one+5 comes this sommer but will be way over 500$ surely..but it looks great,killer performance and finally decent camera..only a slight problem finding
NickiName, 27 May 2017XZ Premium has 4K HDR display, please don't make me laugh of the statement that 1080p looks be... moreAll lies generated by the mind of a fanboy.
Sony's 4k is 1080p in everything bad photos/movie, so yes you get lower PPI in most of everything (given the bigger screen).
XZP's camera is universally hated and easily the worst this year 'round. Just compare the samples with Xiaomi's. You have eyes, don't you?
You can put soft buttons on Xiaomi you know. But who wants that when you already have hard buttons? It basically has as big as XZP's screen despite being smaller because a lot of XZP's useful areas is wasted by soft buttons. Soft buttons were meant to eliminate the chin, Sony understood their purpose completely wrong.
Fingerprint placement if much better on the front because you don't need to handle the phone when on a table. It's basically half of the uses of the fingerprint scanner. Being able to launch a phone without taking it in your hand. It's revolutionary once you use it and can't do without it. Of course you wouldn't know that because you probably only used a Sony in your life and they never did fingertip right. Fingertip on Sonys is cumbersome at best.
Also worse battery (despite the much bigger body, how did they manage to do that, I'm still wondering)
Less ram, meaning less future proof and far slower (when yo disable MIUI's stringent ram management).
Lastly Sony gives up after two years on their devices. 3 is the most I've ever seen. Xiaomi keeps them upgraded for 4 years minimum.
The only that XZP sights is the front facing speakers. Still they're tiny, tinny and bad. Phone speakers would always be a bad idea. Now a good idea to have your phone build around them.
Bantu, 27 May 2017Someone here who's familiar with audio tech , can you please explain how the Mi6 can have good... moreUSB type C supports both: If you use the provided 3.5mm adapter it would use the internal DAC, however, if your adapter has a DAC included it will use that DAC. Xiaomi used good DAC chips in their previous phones (the Mi 5 uses the Sabre ES9018K2M) and I expect more of the same here.
After comparing i phone 7+ and mi6 regular cameras in photo comparison tool, the results are:
In good light: mi6 performs better with more detail and better dynamic range while 7+
images have more contrast.
In low light: 7+ performs slightly better.
Reply after comparing yourself from photo tool.
It's a pretty good smartphone. The main deal-breakers are the lack of the 3.5 mm headphone jack and the MicroSD card.
The Cat, 27 May 2017USB C has pins for analog audio, so I think that the adapter is simply a dongle with no chips ... moreI see, I didn't know that it had analog audio pins...
then must be , thanks :)
LLL, 27 May 2017MicroSD slot in favor of U11. And of course the headline squeeze feature.Thanx bro for pointing out the micro SD card. Such an important feature. Actually the only reason I skipped Mi5 was that xiaomi only sold 32GB version in India and went for 1+3 . But in this case, both Mi6 and U11 have 64GB and 128GB versions. And 64GB is still not less. So Mi6 this year, but it'll be better if xiaomi sells 128GB version.
nice review GSMA,as usual.What bothers me the most is the audio section,you gave mi6 high marks,but no official data about dac chip..that typeC>3.5mm adapter in the box clearly has no audio chip inside,it looks very cheap.

leledumbo, 27 May 2017USB Type-C to 3.5mm jack adapter is provided in the box.Oh , I wondered​ that too, thanks .
Does the converter have a high end DAC included ? any news on that ?
Someone here who's familiar with audio tech , can you please explain how the Mi6 can have good headphone audio quality without having a headphone jack ?
As in dies it require the plugged in headphones to have good separate DACs built in or does xiaomi provide an adapter with a good built in DAC?
Or how does the I herbal DAC of the phone come into play without a headphone jack? :o
.Appreciate it very much.....
[deleted post]I think (not sure) that these results describe the average score and not the highest (the video mentioned just the highest score achieved by each phone). Antutu benchmark website uses the same method (best performance tables are being created based on the average score of its phone).
