Xiaomi Mi 6 review

 

The Xiaomi Mi 6 is one of the best Android phones around.

Premium materials and top-of-the-line hardware means it's a flagship phone that competes with the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7.

The dual-camera setup isn't very good and the phone's glass back is great to look at but can be slippery to hold. It's only available in one country for now.

Xiaomi’s Mi 6 could do some real damage if the company sold it more places. Too bad for us.

Xiaomi Mi 6 Review

 

Xiaomi's flagship device, the Mi 6 is out, but to sell devices, some corners inevitably have to be cut to be able to deliver good specs at a competitive price. So let's review it!

High-end specs make for a buttery smooth performance ; The camera can take some quite spectacular shots ; Great battery life for a flagship ; Relatively inexpensive

MIUI is quite heavy on the iOS aesthetics ; Camera stabilization isn’t good, especially when shooting video ; Not actually sold in the United States

Xiaomi Mi 6 review: Great value for money, but buyer beware

 

At the moment the phrase 'Android flagship' means a device packing Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon chipset, the 835 . And by some margin the cheapest way to get hold of one of those is in the new Xiaomi Mi 6. At the time of writing you can get your paws...

Fast Snapdragon 835 SoC ; Smaller than most flagship devices ; Excellent display and stereo speakers ; Good value for money ; Decent quality dual-camera array ; Entry-level model still offers 64GB of storage and 6GB of RAM

Questionable update path until Xiaomi releases a genuine global ROM ; Not fully water resistant ; No MicroSD expansion ; No 3.5mm audio jack ; No support for LTE Band 20

Xiaomi Mi 6 review

 

It isn't perfect, but the Xiaomi Mi 6 manages to bring together a ton of features we loved last year into one cohesive, affordable package that warrants your attention.

Beautiful, solid design ; Smooth, solid performance thanks to the Snapdragon 835 ; Above average battery life ; Capable dual lens camera ; Portrait mode is very pleasing ; Low price point

No headphone jack ; MIUI may not be for everyone ; Camera capabilities aren’t fully fleshed out ; Limited availability

Xiaomi Mi 6 review: definitely worth importing

 

The imported Xiaomi Mi 6 turns out to be a virtual no-brainer when it comes to recommending it for purchase and, at the same time, it's a good bargain. It's one of the first devices to have Snapdragon 835 - but that's not the only reason why it's such...

Powerful performance ; Good rear camera ; Fair price ; Dual-SIM

Limited 4G support (no Band 20) ; Poor selfies ; Software modification is cumbersome ; No MicroSD slot ; Headphone port per adapter (included with the product)

The Xiaomi Mi 6 is the fastest smartphone that I have tested to date. After some cumbersome conversion of Chinese ROMs to MultiROM, full support for Google apps was also achieved. I recommend that you shell out a small amount of money to the importer...

Xiaomi Mi 6

 

Unlike OnePlus and Huawei, Xiaomi has yet to become a household name outside of its native China. But although Xiaomi's devices may not be so easily available in Europe and America, some of them are certainly worth hunting down.

Xiaomi Mi6 review: The best budget phone you’ve probably never heard of

 

You might struggle to pronounce it, but stray from the usual big hitters and you'll find a well-priced smartphone in Xiaomi's Mi 6

Significantly cheaper than other flagships ; Speedy performer ; Fantastic camera

Lacks 3.5mm headphone jack

Its price is what sets it apart from the rest. No two ways about it, the Xiaomi Mi6 is ridiculously cheap, even in the context of the £449 OnePlus 5 and as a result, impossible not to recommend. If you don’t mind the risk involved in purchasing a phone...

Xiaomi Mi6 review

 

You've not seen a flagship Android phone quite like this one before. Half the price of the Galaxy S8 and just as good, we review the Xiaomi Mi6.

This really is an amazing phone, and only the Chinese software puts us off recommending it for a UK audience. It is crazy fast, crazy beautiful and crazy priced. If you know your way around Android go and get one, and you won’t be disappointed.
