IMO it's one of the hardest. It's simply too tall to reach both the notification and the navigation bar without constantly adjusting your grip (which is also dangerous for falls, etc). IMO no screen should ever be that tall it breaks ergonomy. To make matters worse having to reach leads to accidental touches.
I agree though that 5.5 inch is a better side , but it can only be done by almost completely eliminating bezels, using a sensible aspect ratio (not too tall!) and some well working palm rejection software.
A 5.5 incher can be as small as 130x65mm (which is great for one handed use) but the tech is not here yet. Lacking that Xiaomi's Mi6 is the most ergonomic design this year around. Yes the screen is small in this info heavy era but we still don't have many better options...

this is awesome Feature ready Mobile thank you for this review

lacks character in design. this phone looks more samsungish.. did xioami outsourced their manufacturing to samsung?

By far the best bang for buck phone if you are European.
OP5 will probably change that, depending on whether they'd use low battery again ...

The four main things are battery, camera, autonomy, performance (I would add looks but that is very subjective).
In 3 out of 4 Mi 6 shines through and even in camera it's great.
The idea that it will fail because you can't think of having the 3.5 mm adapter connected to your headphones at all times ... Is weird at best.
If something has such an easy solution is not actually a problem.
Also ~3400 battery for that screen size is one of the best in the market. Possibly *the* best after Xiaomi's very redmi series...

It is good that not all flagship phones Are not ridigilously Large...
"...you'll be lucky to get it for less than $600...."
in EU that means more like +700 euro with import taxes and VAT. Naah, IMHO a Honor 8 (the old non pro model) or an Oneplus 3T still looks better value for money to me.
I just can't justify spending over 500 euro on a phone anymore. Various incomes taxes in Europe are killing budgets way to fast for regular people. The last time I spend (slightly) about 500 euro on a phone was with the Nokia 808pureview. The Galaxy S5 that I bought later was heavily discounted when I bought it as the S6 was at that time released.
And recently I bought the Honor 8 for less than 400 euro. I predict that my future spending on phones will unfortunately be less than 400 euro :-(
Good times are over over here. :-(
Pity they ditched the 3.5mm jack as I (and many others) need it to connect the phone to my car's stereo. And, NO, bluetooth is NO option quality-wise and for convenience. The USB-C to audio plug is nice but useless if you use your phone, hooked up to the car's stereo, as combined satnav-device/MP3-player, particularly for onger trips.
The FHD-resolution is perfect for the size. Especially since LCD's have a standard RGB-matrix and are, thus, sharper then their AMOled nephews.
In fact it almost ticked all the bells that I'd want. Perhaps GSMArena can put the LTE-bands in the article too or at least tell us in which region the reviewed phones are usable. As the previous Mi5 was useless EU with regards to 4G.
Is this phone available at this price with warranty in EU or USA? No ... So 90-95% of people in those places will not pay attention/interest to buying Xiaomi.

And dont forget this is internet, people normally use swear words because some people failed too understand simple logic (like you) and then begin attacking personally without bringing another counter-argument. Don't wish people would believe you had S7 Edge and smart rich bla.. bla.. bla.. just because you said so. You are Cringy AF.
Smartphones Fan, 29 May 2017Front is copy of Huawei P10 and back is copy of iPhone 7 plusHow???? I think they come up first with Mi Note design which is announced in January 2015, and their design just became rounder after Mi 5. And that 2 xiaomi phones came earlier before ip 7 or huawei p10. U are definitive a Troll.

You must be ashamed of your self, I am sorry for you. I am sorry for your parents too, who have failed to educate you. I am not a Sammy fanboy, before the S7 edge, the last Samsung I had was the omnia 2. I am not a fanboy, you are, because you make it personal, you call me idiot and troll, whilst all i did, was express my opinion on this phone, not you. Are you the maker of this phone, I doubt, your intelligence wouldn't allow you considering your English (mind you, English is my 3rd language too) and your inability ta carry an argument without insulting. We have different opinions, you don't have to convince me, but you are not allowed to insult me though. I can hardly understand your points because of your pathetic English, but I did not insult you and tried to reason with you. But it appears that reason is beyond you... You are fanatic, chances are that you cannot afford a S8 and you want to convince your self and others that your compromises are superior, to the flagships you cannot own. This is why you took it personally​ and feel insulted. I forgive you if this is the case, it could be worse, it could be just because you have a miserable soul and poor manners...
