Xiaomi Mi 6 Review

The Xiaomi Mi 6 clearly seems to have gone a long way from its predecessor, and is also a good competitor to today’s flagships. While there are nice touches in the sense of design, the Mi 6 is a nice detail to have a body that is resistant to splashes. But I wish it was made entirely waterproof.

Pros
  • 6 GB RAM
  • Price
  • Screen
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Portrait mode & 2x zoom
  • Powerful speakers
  • High level equipment
Cons
  • No microSD card slot
  • No 3.5 mm
  • No 1080p / 60 frames
  • No water protection

The company succeeded in the new double-camera push. 6 GB RAM and Snapdragon 835 are also highlights. The Mi 6, which also embodies this with a good battery life performance, could have been faced with a higher resolution display. But let me again say that the 5.15 inch Full HD screen looks pretty good.

What is the price of the Xiaomi Mi 6? At present 64 GB version of Mi 6 is available for sale with the guarantee of importer from 1999 TL. 128 GB version can be found at 2389 TL. Considering these prices, we can easily say that the Mi 6 will be an ambitious model this year, with a big price difference from the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7.

Admiral ship owners who are willing to pay more reasonable prices to own a phone have enough reason to buy the Xiaomi Mi 6.

Xiaomi Mi’s new admiral Xiaomi Mi 6 testte!

Although the “flagship of the flagship” stuck on OnePlus, it is clear that Xiaomi is not much of a downside. In particular, Xiaomi Mi 5, who has been talking a lot about our country in the past year, is getting ready to create a new wave with Mi 6 this time.

Although the Xiaomi brand is not yet officially found in our country or through a channel, it is possible to access its phones through reliable online sales channels with importer guarantees. The provocative features of the Xiaomi Mi 5 for its affordable price have caused many flagships to be preferred over the phone. Xiaomi, who continues to aggressive profile in this regard, faces a similar picture in Mi 6.

With its features, Mi 6, which already offers all the features of flagship phones, is obviously very appetizing with its TL price of 1999. What’s he keeping in details? Let’s just start designing right now.

Design

Xiaomi Mi 6 Review

The Xiaomi Mi 6 is more like the predecessor model with its general design lines. There are also minor differences. But let’s just say that the back of the torso has a shiny surface covered with glass. Coming with a choice of black, white and a striking blue color, the Mi 6 is reminiscent of the Corel Blue color of the Note 7 with its blue color.

Xiaomi has also created a special model for more luxurious designs. This model is also referred to as the Mi 6 Exclusive Edition and this phone is made of a black ceramic body with a completely ceramic coating. In addition, 18K gold-plated material around the camera is included in this model.

The Mi 6 has slightly rounded lines towards the edges. The phone, made of stainless steel, makes an important difference compared to its predecessor. The Mi 6 is also one of the phones carrying dual cameras. We will talk about it in detail in the camera section.

When we look around the Mi 6, we see that the power and volume buttons are used side by side. At the bottom we see the USB Type-C input and speaker. However, there is no 3.5 mm jack input here. To clarify the speaker, let’s say that one of the cloaks under the phone is a speaker. However, the handset is also used as a loudspeaker in the phone and we can get stereo quality at Mi 6.

Another section that is missing on the phone is the microSD card slot. Yeah, Mi 6 does not have any way to increase memory. So if you want large capacity, you have to buy a 128 GB model.

Mi 6’s fingerprint reader is also available. The sensor, located just below the screen, works extremely smoothly.

Display and operating system

Xiaomi Mi 6 Review

The Mi 6 has a 5.15-inch screen that offers a 1080-pixel image that looks good with the naked eye. The pixel density of the phone is not so good on paper compared to the Galaxy S8, but you do not realize it when you use the phone. Whether you’re reading social media updates, looking at news, playing games or watching videos, we think you’ll be pleased with the screen of the phone.

The display can reach up to 600 nt brightness within a day, so you do not have difficulty seeing the screen under the sun. The screen produces a 428-pixel image per inch, and the nights are comfortable with a 1-nit brightness in night mode for comfortable readability.

Let’s say that the screen-to-body ratio of the phone is 71 percent, and that both the front and rear panels are protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, and I’ll be in the operating system.

We see Nougat up to date operating system as of 6 Mi. As a customized version of Android 7.1.1 version, we still use MIUI version 8.0, which comes with the MIUI interface. The phone, which consumes less power than the 8.0 version of the interface, contributes to battery consumption.

Battery life

Let’s also talk about the battery life of the Mi 6 when it’s ready. Mi 6’s battery is at 3350 mAh capacity. This, of course, requires us to expect a very long battery life. We have seen this in the wake of the tests we did. Because we have done 17 hours and 35 minutes in intensive daytime tests. For reference, the Galaxy S8 + took 18 hours from a similar test.

Again, in our video test that we applied to Mi 6, we saw that the battery was drained in 13 hours. Also the phone offers about 12.5 hours of web circulation and 17 hours of conversation time.

The phone has a fast charge of course. With Quick Charge 3.0, you can fill up 55 percent of your phone in 30 minutes.

Technical infrastructure

Xiaomi Mi 6 is also one of the most powerful phones of his time like his predecessor. The Mi 5 has a Snapdragon 820, while the Mi 6 has a Snapdragon 835 processor. The phone, carrying the 8-core Kryo 280 chipset, offers powerful performance with four 2.46 GHz and four 1.9 GHz frequency cores. We also see 6 GB of RAM on the phone. Adreno 540 is available as a graphics unit.

In this technical staff light, you can get smooth performance. Whether you switch applications or use more than one application at the same time, or play today’s performance monster games, you will not have to worry about performance on the Mi 6.

The phone, which we made with the phone, scored 2019 points on the Geekbench 4 single core score, so it performs between Galaxy S8 + and iPhone 7. In the case of multi-core, the Galaxy S8 +, Huawei P10 and iPhone 7 also enter 6110 points. At this point, let’s say that we have already examined Galaxy S8 + in Geekbench 4 with 2019 in single core and 6720 in multi core. So you will have an idea in your head about the performance of Mi 6.

The Mi 6, which received 177319 points (Galaxy S8 + 173314 points) in the AnTuTu test, is also good at thermal thermal management. If you play Pokemon Go and similar games for a long time, you can see that it is warmed up a bit; but it is not in a worrying level. Qualcomm and Xiaomi have done a good job in this sense.

The telephone also has improvements in the connection section at the technical infrastructure point. For example, this phone has Bluetooth 5.0 support. You can find all about what Bluetooth 5.0 brings to you in our article “What you need to know about Bluetooth 5”. But roughly speaking of this feature of the Mi 6, we can say that it offers a better Bluetooth experience.

Of course, the phone still has LTE support. 42.2 Mbps download, a phone capable of uploading at 5.76 Mbps, and dual-band 802.11ac support for Wi-Fi with 2×2 MIMO antennas. It also has NFC and FM Radio.

Dual camera

In Mi 6, one of the biggest differences compared to Mi 5 is emerging at camera point. Mi 6 has a double camera. Xiaomi is also joining the caravan of dual-camera phones. Let’s just say: Mi 6 also has a portrait mode like the iPhone 7.

The Mi 6 has two cameras with normal and wide angles. Both are 12 MP while the main camera is equipped with a f / 1.8 diaphragm and a 4-way optical image stabilizer. Here we see the Sony IMX386 sensor, but the other lens maker that is telephoto is not yet known. The aperture value of the telephoto camera is f / 2.8. There is also no OIS for this camera.

Camera interface is simple. There are options like HDR, portrait mode and 2x lossless zoom. There are also 12 filters in the live preview. You have many options such as Panorama, Timer, Sound, Smoothing, Manual, Beauty Mode, Group Shot and Night Shot.

We can say that the Mi 6 can take great pictures in bright light for portrait mode. The phone’s low light capabilities are not as successful as a Pixel XL or Samsung Galaxy S8. Here we can say that the low light performance is close to the iPhone.

The Mi 6’s selfie camcorder has an 8 MP lens. This camera comes with a beauty mode, it catches beautiful squares. We can say that it is suitable for social media sharing.

If we come to the video shooting point, let’s say the phone can record 4K videos. The Mi 6 can record up to 2160p / 30 frames, and up to 30 frames at 1080p. So with this phone you can not record 60 frames in Full HD. On the other hand, let’s also say that you can shoot slow at 720p / 120 frames.
