It did not take long for Xiaomi to follow the fight in the smartphone segment flagship. Xiaomi Mi-6 response creates the birth of a series of cool smartphones like LG G6, Huawei P10, hingg Samsung Galaxy S8. As usual, the tag of Mi-6 is the most inexpensive.


Small and colorful. Xiaomi Mi-6 is going to be the desire of users who have small hands. This smartphone brings the 5.15 inch screen that can certainly spoil a shirt pocket or jeans though.

In addition, the Xiaomi Mi-6 had a blue color variant that looks eccentric. But if you want a more neutral, there is a choice of black and white. Mi rear body 6 made of glass (standard version) or ceramic (special versions) also makes the body behind a sparkling, more luxurious.

Topnotch performance. Mi 6 became the first Chinese origin smartphone successfully use the highest chipset Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835. Not to mention that there is a capacity of 6 GB RAM. Practical performance should be appreciated two thumbs up.

In AnTuTu benchmark, a score achieved 180 thousand points, among the highest in the Android platform. Real-world performance to play its games was very ust. Even when we compare it with the Samsung Galaxy S8 Exynos version, Mi 6 superior performance. This is because the Snapdragon 835 that is more accurate, at least for now.

Battery qualified. Questions that often arise under the current performance is about the ability of the battery. Mi-6, Xiaomi managed to embed a 3,350 mAh battery in the body is small.

For daily use, Mi 6 average incised record-time on-screen five hours to the top, which means sufficient. Even if the battery was quickly discharged from the extras, we can fill up quickly (total 100 minutes) thanks to Quick Charge feature.

Class camera iPhone 7 Plus. Things did not we think not of Mi 6 is a camera sector. We were not sure if Mi 6 would be able to shoot as good as dual-camera smartphones such as Huawei P10 or iPhone 7 Plus.

Mi 6 carries two cameras, an ordinary lens with an aperture of f / 1.8, OIS, and PDAF, one telephoto lens (2x optical zoom) with an aperture of f / 2.6. Not to forget, there is also a portrait mode for shooting bokeh on condition that adequate light conditions and distance to the object is sufficient. The results were satisfactory camera shots.

Splash resistant. Xiaomi can not make a fully waterproof smartphone. But at least Mi 6 already carry splash resistant features splash resistant. So Mi 6 should be would be safe if exposed to rain, while not submerged in water.

Stereo speakers. Hobbies streaming video or playing games? You will be pampered with stereo speakers on Mi 6. Earpiece its existing respectively in the bottom near the USB port on the top side C and blend with the earpiece. Although not the best, loudspeaker quality was quite satisfactory.


Bodi is dirty and scratched easily. With glistening body, especially for the blue variant, Xiaomi Mi-6 was easy fine scratches. We have refined their berets in the body after use of almost a week.

So if you intend to buy Mi-6, we strongly recommend to buy only version is more resistant ceramic beret. One thing that should be known that the body of Mi-6 was quite slippery in the hand.

Without audio jack. Large battery and splash resistant features are brought Mi 6 must be paid in the absence of an audio jack. Impressed impose and chimed indeed. If you still want to use a headset with a 3.5 mm jack, Xiaomi include converters in the sales package.

ROM still needs improvement. Another of our complaints about the Mi-6 is a ROM. Because Mi-6 is currently limited only sold in China, the ROM provided was still a Chinese version, there is no global version. So to get the best Android experience, we have to wait for global ROM.
