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
I'll wait 3 more month to see if there are more stable custom rom. If there are. Then it's a choice for me. Right now is not the right time. Even everyone know miui suck up ram too much. Currently I'm using redmi note 4, the second day direct install lineage OS. Pretty much the same thing I'll do if I buy mi 6. But I'll wait until more stable rom is out

Just looked to the low light shots.
No offense but I think XZ Premium isn't the only terrible low light flagship shooter after all.
Dhaulana, 27 May 2017Why Sony XZ Premium is missing from comparison in PERFORMANCE segment.. A SD 835 powered phone... moreWhy does xz p need to be included in every comparison article? What's wrong with you?
Dhaulana, 27 May 2017Why Sony XZ Premium is missing from comparison in PERFORMANCE segment.. A SD 835 powered phone... moreThat's hilarious, Samsung paying not to include Sony in a Xiaomi review. You surely made my day. The reason Sony Xperia XZ Premium is missing from the performance section is because the phone does not fall into the same category with the Mi 6 - those two have the chipset in common and nothing else, And more importantly their price difference is huge. Finally, the onscreen benchmarks of the XZP run on 1080p instead of 4K (which is not Sony's fault) and will hardly give some value here. BUT! We have added Sony Xperia XZ Premium in the charts for the sake of comparison. Hope it helps. ;)
The issue with standby is clearly the firmware. Many reviews have pointed out the instability of the current MIUI and I'm certain that this is the source of the battery life which is good, but falls very short of what it should be.
mahima jr, 26 May 2017at half the price...and yet as good as xzp...not much to complain
sony bezel compete with lg ... moreWater resistent? No, just splash
4K HDR? No
Front speakers? No
Does it upscale poor quality audio files? No
Super slow mo? No
Great LCD? No
Slot SD? No
Best video stabilization? No
Does it upscale low resolution photos and videos to highest? No
Hi Res audio? No
Take away the SD835, the rest is like a Moto G5
Why Sony XZ Premium is missing from comparison in PERFORMANCE segment.. A SD 835 powered phone should be compared with SD 835 or equalent processor.. XZ Premium too outperformed S8 in many tests.. Did Samsung pay you to keep true rivals out of comparison charts??
Even this has stereo and the 1000 dollars Samsung does not..
mahima jr, 26 May 2017at half the price...and yet as good as xzp...not much to complain sony bezel compete with lg ... moreHuawei p10? Anyone? It's about the same price, or maybe the upcoming iphone 7s? It's also the same price if not more
No 3.5mm audio jack (but an adapter is provided)
Not fully water-resistant
No microSD slot
And that is why gsmarena reviews are still the best. Do not bend to industry gurus and keep on fighting the good fight! Thanks a lot for all your hard work.
