Xiaomi made headlines early last year with its 2016 flagship, the Mi 5. Not only was the Mi 5 affordable, beautiful, and packed with top-tier features, it was also one of the first devices to sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor. Unfortunately the device never officially made its way to the United States, and even if you did manage to import one it lacked the proper 4G LTE bands.

Now Xiaomi is back with its 2017 flagship smartphone, the Mi 6. With the Xiaomi Mi 6, you get a phone with high-end specs, a unique design, a zoom lens, and a sub-$400 price tag. The problem is, like the Mi 5, this phone isn’t coming to the West. That means folks residing in the U.S. will need to import one from a third-party website. But if you happen to live elsewhere, is this phone worth your hard-earned cash?

Find out, in our Xiaomi Mi 6 review!

About this review:

Because I, Joshua Vergara, used the Xiaomi Mi 6 in the States on the T-Mobile network, I was not able to get the best example of the Mi 6’s performance. As a Chinese phone, this device lacked the radios for LTE connectivity and even then had problems sticking to an HSPA+ connection. This is common for a phone made for other markets, but it does mean that this review is a bit less deep on the hard specifications. Please keep this in mind when reading our review.
