Coming to the display, the Xiaomi Mi 6 features a 5.15 inch IPS LCD Panel with a display resolution of 1080p. Now, there may be a lot of users who will feel that a QHD panel was something Xiaomi could have gone for , but personally,I feel that the Full HD panel is still very much relevant in the market, and choosing that over the QHD panel at this point of time is not really a mistake. We have a super 428 ppi pixel density which gives you crisp text, punchy colours and accurate renders anywhere. The minimum brightness level of 1.2 nits ensures that you have an absolutely brilliant night reading experience.
You have three preset modes available to use whenever you desire, including the Night reading mode, similar to the iPhone, which can be configured to even run for specific apps.
All in all, Xiaomi has got the game going on a high with an absolutely exquisite device. Yes, the omission of the headphone jack will raise a few eyebrows, but its a change which is coming, and we might as well get used to it.

The Xiaomi Mi 6 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, which is basically an octa-core Kryo 280 processor (4×2.46GHz and 4×1.9GHz), Adreno 540 GPU, and 6 gigs of RAM. While this is a masterstroke of a package, the inclusion of the 1080p panel instead of the QHD alternative will ensure that the graphics tests will produce stellar results. Personally, I am not a believer in benchmark tests, but they give us a starting point for consideration, so here goes. In terms of single core performance, the Mi 6 comes second only to the iPhone 7. What this means is that the Mi 6 is the best single core performer among the entire slew of Android devices.
Coming to the graphics performance, the Adreno 540 is by far the best GPU in the Android lineup, which again means that the Mi 6 came in second to the iPhone 7 and as a result, is the best among the Android players in the race. As mentioned earlier, the 1080p panel does the trick and there were cases where the Mi 6 bested even the competitor from Cupertino by a fair margin.
We also ran the AnTuTu benchmark tests and found that the Mi 6 topped the charts coming above even the mighty iPhone 7. While all these are just numbers and statistics, the true potential of any device can be determined by individual use. Every user has his/her own style of operating their device, and that decides how well the device actually performs in reality.
