Iphone is not just about looks and brand. Its an experience in its own, if you know how to use it. It supports its devices with updates for long.
Personally I have used almost all platforms and have found BLACKBERRY & IPHONE are very productive and secure, provided user knows how to use it.
In android world SONY, MOTOROLA and XIAOMI are good ones.
Please understand, a mobile device is more than fm,ir blaster and headphone jack.
is Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus is going to be released, or stopped manufacturing ; any genuine info please

These features aren't going to add much to an already higher priced flagship. The only reason I can think of is AESTHETICS/APPEARANCE. They removed all of those features not because power users don't use or want them but because they really believe the improved APPEARANCE (slimmer, sleekier, classy body) will compensate for the loss of those features. Well Xiaomi is dead WRONG. The dumbing down strategy (removing features that help slim down a phone) in the name of classy, sleek, futuristic premium appearances only works with the iphone whose main selling point is point is classiness and slimness of appearance and its brand name prestige. Using the same 'appearance/physical beauty first' strategy doesn't work in an Android phone. Look at what happened to the Mi Mix. No amount of futuristic looking uber-slim bezel free phone will compensate for the loss of the fm radio, ir blaster and headphone jack support. It sold less than the mi max and the main reason really is not the price (its much cheaper now) but its lack of features (ir blaster, head phone jack, fm radio, etc.) which are present in the mi max. For android users, looks and prestige is secondary to features. Features are the main selling point. Only the iphone has looks and styling as its main selling point and no Android manufacturer can take that away from Apple. Iphone users are conspicuos buyers who want brand appearance and prestige above all. Features and substance don't matter to them or are only secondary that's why they are ok with removal of features that can add bulk to the phone. This strategy doesn't work with most Android users.

FM tuner, IR blaster are entertainment tools, which power users hardly use.
Headphone jack function is just for headphone insertion. If it can be taken care by usb port, why have additional opening just for one function.
Please understand flagship is not for entertainment but for productivity and professional use.
Hope you understand the difference.
I really can't understand why Xiaomi's flagship phones don't have FM radios or an sd card support while all its other lower priced phones have those features. Snapdragon 835 is becoming very generic and what sets apart one flagship phone from another really are these smaller, niche things/features: big, >4000 mAh batteries, larger than 6" screens, ir blaster, headphone jacks, sd card support and dual sim support. Almost all flagships with snapdragon 835 have stupidly reduced battery capacity, removed FM radio, headphone jack, sd card support, etc, all in the name of slimmer profiles/bodies and an ip68 water resistant features. They end up becoming too similar and generic that price and brand name becomes their only unique selling proposition which is not enough to change their market share. If Xiaomi wants to grab the flagship market share from Samsung, it has to offer features that the Samsung doesn't have. Copying Samsung's removal of FM radio, removal of headphone jack, removal of ir blaster and sd card support will only make it fare worse than Samsung.
T3CHN0M4NC3R, 21 Apr 2017based on the spec listed... this 1 apparently has audio jack...Yes, and if not there is adapter. You just can't listen and charge at same time.

joy., 21 Apr 2017Headph jack is mentioned as yes in the specs ? Is that a mistake from GSMArena ?It is not mistake because phone doesn't officially arrived and nobody can tell for sure if jack won't appear
