Xiaomi’s Mi 6 Review
It’s been a while since Xiaomi launched their Mi 6. This amazing beauty sports a Snapdragon 835 SoC. Powered by 6 gigs of RAM and upto 128 gigs of onboard storage.
What I liked the most:
- Beautiful and smooth design.
- Liquid smooth performance powered by the Snapdragon 835.
- Good battery life.
- Dual lens camera.
- A very low price tag.
- No headphones jack.
- MIUI isn’t that impressive.
- Limited Availability.
Overall the display performance pretty good and I didn’t have any much issues with it.
the Mi 6 is one of the first devices to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. It also comes with either 4 or 6 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of on-board storage. As I alluded to earlier, the ceramic edition is considered the most premium of the bunch, as it comes with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
Gaming and multitasking is liquid smooth. I didn’t see any overheating or any glitch on the device while multitasking, which is very great.
The camera has a dual lens system that provides a 2x optical zoom aside the original wider angle. Zoom can be quite important to shutterbugs and Xiaomi has done well to provide one for picture taking in particular. Zoom capabilities are unfortunately not available for video recording, which is a rather significant downside.
The camera app in the Mi 6 provides a few extra modes that shutterbugs will be particularly fond of, including a Pro mode. And even as an automatic shooter, the Mi 6’s camera is quick enough to take a good shot, even when shooting in HDR mode. HDR is a toggle rather than an automatic mode, and keeping it on will often boost up the shadows and bump up the saturation to a noticeable degree.
Xiaomi ships the Mi 6 with its own custom UI I.e MIUI 8, based on 7.1 Nougat. If you’ve used a Xiaomi device earlier you’ll probably know what MIUI is. MIUI doesn’t come with an app drawer, which means you’ll need to rely on folders to help organize your home screens.
Some extra features include a Dual App mode that allows multiple iterations of the same application, a Deep Clean application that helps to clear the phone of junk files, and included Mi Cloud storage if you have a Mi account. If there’s one thing we always enjoy hearing about with MIUI, it’s how often it gets updated due to feedback in the Mi forums.
