Best frequency response ever! Second best sunlight legibility for any LCD panel and third best after S8 and i7. second best battery life of current 2017 flagships after S8
Only shortcoming author mentioned in the "final words" is 1080p resolution, which is actually a good thing for me,because it not only increases battery life and gaming frame rates, it also decreases the amount of RAM occupied by apps and system.
Kiki, 27 May 2017Htc u11 is more expensiveThanks buy already mentioned in Mi6 list. just listing pros
Nick.B, 27 May 2017One is for sure - samsung is paying a lot of reviewers and magazines
my lg v20 and huawei p9 ... moreMy Galaxy note 5, S7 and S8 shoots much better than lg v20 and huawei p9 plus, review by me and not payed by Samsung.
See I can do the same to?
I can see a mixture of design from huawei honor8 and samsung, probably a bit apple, lol
Kaloyan, 27 May 2017That's hilarious, Samsung paying not to include Sony in a Xiaomi review. You surely made my da... moreOne is for sure - samsung is paying a lot of reviewers and magazines
my lg v20 and huawei p9 plus shoot much much better photos than galaxy note5, s7 and s8. Compared them side by side with my own eyes. Not payed samsung reviews.
why can't GSMA confirm the USB standard? Last year I bought an Mi5 & checked the transfer speeds using my Anker USB 3.0 OTG cable and my SanDisk Extreme flash drive. It doesn't go above 30MB/s. (If it goes beyond 40MB/s it must be a 3.0/3.1 connection)
If I get my hands on Mi6 I will try the same. How do you guys check it anyway?

It has dual front facing stereo speakers which will whack any single downward facing mono speakers everyday.
Xiaomi has buttons? Cool, Sony has virtual keys - which one is more future proof? Lol.
Fingerprint reader in such an absolutely ridiculous placement. Nothing's better than having the reader on the side of the phone.
Oh, and should I mention the far superior front camera of the XZ Premium? Nah it will add more insult to the injury of your Mi 6.
Arccosinus, 26 May 2017Camera is awful. Slightly better than XZ premium. It competes with Sony Xperia XA but not wit... moreCamera is definitely not as good as S7/S8 in low light.
But in good-light condition, I don't see the result as anywhere "awful".
If you wish to get a better picture at lower light, better get a DSLR camera to do the job.

I want to collect the product manager debts regarding camera software quality enhancements.
in the audio test, how did you attached the external amplifier and earphones? i thought it has no 3.5mm jack? hmmmmmmm pls explain how u really tested
The omission of Band 20 (LTE800) is major downside for this device (and most Xiaomi phones in general) will cause problems in almost all EU countries (and also some non-EU) and should be noted in the first page listing, not brushed away in the networking section.
Xiaomi won me again. just confused between U11 or Mi6. Weather to buy a full flagship or an affordable flagship. but if affordable, I'll go Mi way.
Points for Mi6 :
1)Smaller 5" - I love small phones
2)miui - I like more than any UI
2)better audio (but practically not so significant coz most of Hindi songs are mostly available in normal bitrates.
3)I won't say U11 loos better. Cos while its prettier on the back, much uglier on the front.
So apparently Mi6 winning. But if you can remind me any of major plus points of U11 pls.
Arccosinus, 26 May 2017Camera is awful. Slightly better than XZ premium. It competes with Sony Xperia XA but not wit... moreIf all you care is camera then yes. Most of us don't (we have mirror less cameras which are 1000 times better than any mobile camera). In any of the rest it kill all the rest of the flagships.
No gimmicks (1080p looks the sales as 1440p in such a small screen, no useless aspect ratoos), one handed use for a good part, ample battery life despite the small size of the device,top performance that will last for ages (only flagship thiusnfar with SD835 + 6GB of ram), miui support that never ends (Xiaomi supports her phones for 3years plus).
Apart from the camera there are no weaknesses for this phone.
Meme Super Rage, 26 May 2017Hi anti-bezzel army where are you? Why bash Sony for having big chin and forehead and not this... moreThis phone has 72% ratio with a smaller screen (which is harder). XZP is 69% w a nigger screen which is twice as bad. To add insult to the injury XZP uses the chin for almost nothing. This one uses it for Fingertip/buttons so it's not as if it is going to waste. Lastly Xiaomi manages to put the same size of battery in a much smaller body (resulting to a better battery life).
All show an economic use of space which Sony lacks by heaps...
The markup cons is pretty subjective though. Blame greedy 3rd party retailers because of the high price. For the price, the phone is still the cheapest 2017 flagship.
Bezels? Still small enough for me. Just because galaxy s8 has damn good body to screen ratio doesnt mean every smartphone should be like that. And most importantly, mi 6 bezels are smaller than iPhone's.
Would love to upgrade from my mi5 prime to mi6.
My personal cons for this phone is head phone jack.
[deleted post]There are no official global unit, only taiwan unit. So you have to wait. But, whenever I read the review, GSM arena hardly say something bad about samsung phone. Paid to give positive comment as what other commentor said. Haha. even high end Samsung will lag after a few month , they never mention that. Keep praising the ui
