There are ways to avoid paying a lot of taxes (done that) but of course you can't really rely on that.
I totally agree on the last one. If Xiaomi did what Oneplus does they would have huge success (although cause of the taxes the price would be pretty much like OP5 :/ ). But their planning is different (working their way up on eastern markets) and I really can't argue about doing so (they have so many employees, financial analysts etc).

The Mi6 has great potential there, but Xiaomi still hasn't released the kernel sources (which makes it a challenge and better to wait until they do).
As for "pricing", yes, taxes and customs was what I really meant by shipping. My personal experience with a given store that has "EU direct" warehouses is that buying a Mi 6 and shipping to an EU address will cost just about the same as buying the similarly spec'ed OP5 (6GB/64GB). There are places that show much cheaper prices, but if you add the taxes and customs you should pay... they just aren't worth the hassle customs usually give.
Xiaomi really should do as OnePlus, cut the middle-man and ship directly to major markets (without any further hassles).

Yeah customs are a variable (shipping is almost always free or a few Euros only), but generally you can find Mi6 much cheaper than 500 Euros (Oneplus 5 official price for Europe). Furthermore, 3rd party retailers almost always sell their phones with crappy custom roms BUT MIUI has a "geeky" nature, meaning that you can officially unlock your bootloader and flash an original ROM (which will probably not support your native language, but then again many won't bother having English as a system language). LTE bands are a real issue (band 20 for me) but not quite a dealbreaker. I am not saying OP5 isn't nice and for sure troubling with ROM's is not for everyone, but MI6 offers a great value for money (and if the prices continue getting lower like Mi5's did, then I will for sure replace my phone).
sky8, 30 Jul 2017op 5 is better but money matters tooActually, if you are outside of China (Europe for instance) the prices will be pretty much the same (it's really how much you pay for shipping that makes the difference) -- only that with OnePlus you'll still have an official RMA while Xiaomi will make you just through the hops.
I won't even start talking about the LTE bands... which is also a major pain if you get the wrong version.
In short: international buyers are likely better served with OP5, without having to pay that much for it (if any at all).
i have been waiting this phone since May bt there's no sign til now, bt i have patient m gonna wait till the end.
Hridoy israt, 31 Jul 2017Please update it with screen Mirroring system as a water proof phone.watertest
Wanted to buy it, but so many complaints people are posting here. So I'll stuck with Huawei P10 plus. P10 plus has a better camera and an SD card slot over Mi6
Please update it with screen Mirroring system as a water proof phone.
