Xiaomi Mi 6 Review and Unboxing: High-end specs and low cost

Written by Agboola Sodiq
B uying the Xiaomi Mi 6, the sole downside is its own shortage of accessibility in the western economies. But you are going to be receiving top-end hardware — such as a Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage plus a double 12-megapixel camera alternative — in a bundle which costs approximately $430 once imported. The Xiaomi Mi 6 packs a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and an 8-megapixel front camera for awesome selfies.

With mobiles such as the Galaxy S8 costing $ 700, as well as the LG G6 placing you back $ 550 for hardware that is mostly last-generation, the more Xiaomi Mi 6 will be a complete bargain at this price. Last year the Mi 5 packaged all of the ideal hardware, such as top notch Qualcomm Snapdragon SoCs and also higher quality cameras, at a sub-$400 bundle, alerting virtually every device available on the current market, for example, OnePlus 3.

The Xiaomi Mi6 runs on a 3350mAh non-removable battery. It steps 145.17 x 70.49 x 7.45 (height x width x thickness) and then weigh 182.00 g.
