Samarth N8 808 user, 08 Aug 2017I like the phone, although they need to rev up the slow motion modes, this is SD 835 for God's... moreBecause of the OIS, photos can be taken with no motion blur created by handshake ('cause our hands aren't the most stable camera equipment). With OIS, photos can be taken at longer shutter times because of the stabilizer, and with longer shutter times, the sensor is exposed longer to light, giving way to brighter images with lower ISO levels, which also leads to lower noise, and because of that, the software processing doesn't have to aggressively reduce the noise levels down (typically leads to very soft though clean results). Photos taken with OIS are mostly sharper because of the stability of the sensor while capturing.
Just wanted to add my view since I actually have both the Mi5 and Mi6. Despite any comments about "copying others" or "last year designs", the Mi6 is actually a fantastic phone and (imho) the best phone made in the 5.2" or so size. In fact, I hope the Mi7 keeps the same form factor and does not go the route of the 18:9 screen ratio trend. If they make any changes at all, maybe reduce the bezels a bit to squeeze in a 5.3" screen, and maybe offer a (very slightly) larger 5.7" model.
I personally feel this size phone (or possibly just a small bit larger) is the most functional and useful for everyday use. I also much prefer having the fingerprint scanner on the front as the home button, with the 2 UI buttons next to it.
I am not saying phones with larger (taller) screens are worse than this size, and maybe for many people that use their phone for media etc, having a taller screen and minimal bezels is preferred, but in practice, anything larger than the Mi6 size becomes increasingly more difficult to use one handed. Although you can use various methods such as custom gestures or navigation fly outs to mitigate this, (I feel) they all have disadvantages.
If you are willing to adjust how you use your phone to account for the larger (taller) screens of most of the current designs, then sure, there are many other options. But if you prefer a phone that fits in and can easily be used one-handed, then the Mi6 is just about the perfect size and layout, with a fantastic screen, amazing battery life and top performance.
About the only other thing that is worth considering regarding the Mi6 is the ceramic version is surprisingly heavy, which may make it uncomfortable for some people over extended periods of use.
Should i consider Huawei P10 or Mi 6? I have been struggling to make decision.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2017Most of us have mirror cameras that are 1000 times better?
Anything else you wish to add th... more1. nah I don't have something like that
2. the best camera is the one that's always with you (-> phone camera)
I like the phone, although they need to rev up the slow motion modes, this is SD 835 for God's sake, not a Snapdragon 625 (which can do all the video recording modes mentioned here).
@ GSMA staff: Hey Guys, you said, "In handheld shooting, the shutter speed would go down to 1/12s so the OIS is not doing a class-leading job but most photos we shot turned out sharp."
Could you please explain how OIS is supposed to increase shutter speed?
The last I checked, OIS only stabilises a photo, so they turn out sharp, but shutter speed isn't affected at all.
cloggedtittzz, 29 May 2017How???? I think they come up first with Mi Note design which is announced in January 2015, and... moreYeah, you absolutely right. Xiaomi used this 3d back cover first in the world with mi note and mi note pro in 2015. Check it yourself.. Apple copy it from xiaomi mi note!
Got mine two weeks ago and I'm dee-lited about it.Paid 446$ from Aliexpress,they are using DHL,over their EU warehouse,so no custom&tax dutys.This thing is a beast in terms of...everything!Excellent display,killer hardware(4/64 version),great build&finish,very good camera,all day battery life,beautiful looking MIUI-everything from Google working great,rapid fingerprint,fast 4G..fantastic sound..
Almost waited for Oneplus 5 to buy,but I'm very glad I didn't,they're so similar in what they offer but one thing is crucial;Next to 1+5,Mi6 looks like italian designed top fashion statement,+5 looks like painfully boring cheap piece of rectangular..thing..and for 100+$ more,it's a no brainer.Mi6,highly recommend it!
trox mitsos, 18 Jun 2017The audio is stereo captured at 96KBps bitrate.lumia 532 have 168MIUI 8 limitation. If you watch all MIUI 8 devices, the recorded audio are all equal actually. This will hopefully be improved in MIUI 9.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2017This phone is 800 usd in my country . It is worth it ?800 us dollars? that is actually insane. In my country it is 500 Euros and it is still insane. Only via online retailers (currently at ~370 Euros) . With 800 dollars you have to check S8,XZ premium,G6,P10 etc....they will probably cost less than that...the problem when the price gets high is not if "the phone does not worth it" but that the competition gets harder....at 370 Euros there are not many (if any) phones to match Mi6...but at 700+ oh boy...
Edit: If anything else you have to check oneplus 5. It will be sold officialy from the company at most markets and it will cost far less than that (~500 dollars). If you are into the bigger screen, it will probably be equivalent (if not better) to mi6.
