Iphone copycat in design..
Worse screen-to-body ratio and much heavier compared to Mi5.
Just like "phone made of glass" became the high-end premium for whatever reason, apparently "plugging your headphones into your USB port" is following suit :(
1- 1080p screen is a reason why I would never buy this phone.
2- If you're not a major company like Samsung/Sony/HTC; you should prefer stock Android on your phones instead of making new shitty Android UI's.
What's important is the internal storage. If they got 64gb rom and above, it should be more than enough. SD card may cause problem like file corrupt or failure and not that useful anymore. 3.5mm jack shouldn't be taken out, I wish to use earpiece while I'm charging, Bluetooth is not necessary or convenient for some user who thinks the sounds quality may not as good as a wired one and need to charge it once in a while, and become another factor to drain your phone battery.
CommonSense, 19 Apr 2017If your phone has a built-in 64GB or 128GB, why do you need an external memory card? what for? If ur phone is broken, need factory reset, what do you think about your data ? I dont have premium dropbox, gdrive premium, just free, dont always backup my data to pc. Yeah thats nice feeling....

However, I was hoping fo... moreAgreed, I was expecting so much more from their 2017 flagship after their introducing the Mi Mix last year. And the removal of 3.5mm jack is a bummer as well. Oh well, going to wait for 6s then. Or even next year maybe. No upgrade for me this year it seems.
I really liked the Xiaomi Mi 5 - one of the best phones I ever owned. However, I was hoping for something more compact in the Mi 6. But at 168 grams, it is nearly 40 grams heavier than the Mi 5 which was only 129 grams. It's also taller and wider, a big let down following their revolutionary MIX. Yes, better internals, but actually the Mi 5's internals were good enough for me. I was looking for OK internals with better compactness than the Mi 5 so I am disappointed in this new phone, from an appearance point of view anyway. The Mi 6 is also heavier than many other phones with a similar display size - like the Huawei P10 for example.
NINJA1, 19 Apr 2017reasons why people dont buy mi6.
2.no sd card slot
4.no 3.5mm jack
... more1.lcd. You still complain about pricetag? Amoled will cost double than ips panel
2.no sd card slot, 64gb is enough i think, transfer your file to your laptop/google drive/another cloud storage if you need more storage
3.1080p display, naked eye cannot see different between 1080p and above
4.no 3.5mm jack, use adaptor
5.marshmallow, read carefully, miui 8 based 7.1.1
lemonade747, 19 Apr 2017I saw it has the IR port on the top of the phone but in the gsmarena it say "No". Which one is true?it has IR Blaster
No headphone jack ! discourage me to buy this phone. Yeah we have bluethooth, wireless headphone bla bla..., but that incovenience. I have bluethooth and wired headphone, but I only use bluethooth for sport, jogging, and the other time I prefer wired headphone.
The first reason I dont buy iphone is no headphone jack, ok I like this phone, but I guest the same, pass
Any news about the supported frequencies? Would be a shame if they chose to only support a limited set of frequencies, and not make it a truly world-roaming phone.
Xiaomi is superior to any other smartphone manufacturer in the chinese market.
Meehn, 19 Apr 2017The CEO has explained in an interview why they don't use memory cards. The phone's read/write ... moreThere are super fast Memory Cards available in the market . But maybe they are just too expensive for Xiaomi users. Thats why they dont have sd card slot.
