Xiaomi has come a long way and now showing their newest flagship device to bring the best features at a right price. Just released on China and its already captured the curiosity of many due to its unique and alluring features.
A 5.15” IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 giving 428 ppi with its rounded corners to give a better grip and hold. Its main color is the blue and gold color design which is different from the standard. Although it has other great colors which are the exclusive silver color which is hard to manufacture and lastly the ceramic edition that has an 18 karat gold to line the camera. The absence of 3.5mm jack is one of the usual concerns of people but even though it is absent, the package comes with a type C audio adapter. Xiaomi boast it’s splash resistant which can withstand spills and light rain however we are not sure if it can really withstand the submersion of water for a few inches or meters. The water resistant will deteriorate in time when the phone falls down frequently as what founder Lei Jun stated.
Features and Specifications
Mi 6 runs on Android Nougat 7.0 plus Xiaomi’s Custom MIUI OS and powered by snapdragon 835 SoC which is the same as the Samsung’s galaxy S8. It can support phenomenal mobile performance which is 34% smaller and 25% less power to have a longer battery life. Its design is to support cutting edge experience for a faster streaming of audio and video with lifelike Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Has 6GB of RAM and internal storage up to 128 Gb. Even though it does not have the expandable memory card feature, the internal storage is enough for storage of your pictures, videos and files. In regards if it is able to connect with OTG flash drive is the one that I’m not so sure.
There are 2 rear camera which is similar to LG G6 and has 12MP sensors which can support 4k video recording, one rear camera has a 27mm wide angle lens and the other 52mm that is capable of 2x lossless zoom (without the loss of quality). The camera has the similar portrait mode on iPhone 7 which has the effect of a cut out with blurred background. The front camera has only 8MP which is good for selfies and video calling.
On the display you can choose the eye care mode or the blue light filter to decrease the yellow hue on everything. Below the display is the home button which not functions only for home but for the fingerprint reader also. It has the same looks as the HTC 10
Its battery is just mediocre at 3350mAh which is a disappointment to some even though it has the Snapdragon 835. For a longer battery life you just need to set your settings to medium and stop other apps running in the background if you’re not using it like using apps like greenify.
Xiaomi really have made have a phone which combines the previous models into one not just competing only with its features but bang for the buck.
