And while it didin't have the sensational battery of Note 3 or Redmi 3, it had a superb screen, was very fast, had usb-c and fast charging and was very light. Ni complaints there mate.
Ever since 4C days, I learned that Xiaomi uses C devices to experiment (with anything they want, including but not limited to battery, performance, camera sensor). I was a victim of Mi4C, but a happy owner of Mi5. Will only upgrade to Mi6, never again a Mi series with C in its name. I'd better go with Redmi Note series instead, some of them are actually better than Mi C series.

OTG is so sexy in a 2017 phone. A tiny cable dangling with a cheap USB thumb drive, Looks like a colonoscopy bag in an Olympic swimmer.
mi 6 might be better, or more better. Sensor from omnivision, not know much, but imx 398 is better
camera is not as good as I expected.
It really bad image quality compare with mi5...................

Cpt. Power, 23 Mar 2017In my shop i sold tons of them but never had xiaomi on my own. Xiaomi is good and reliable phone but when it breaks its difficult to find good service with replacement gear.
