What do we personally want from the Mi Max 2? Bigger battery (yes, even 6000mAh would not be too crazy), better screen, and full metal body. That’s all! Let’s see if they give us this.

Of course, it will be only available in China for a while first. Then you may see it in India and the rest of the world – slowly.

Xiaomi Mi6 Review: @TechTabletscom

Great review by TechTablets. Shame about the crashes and beta-level MIUI though. Also, how on earth they can still have these framerate issues with the front facing camera in low light situations? These all can be fixed with software, so let’s hope that MIUI 9 is going to come to all phones that have these issues soon, including the Mi5S.

Xiaomi says they removed 3.5mm jack to fit in a bigger battery into Mi6

According to Android Central, the reason for Xiaomi to remove 3.5mm is to increase battery capacity for Mi6 and make it better at splash resistance. Read the full article right here.

This is not that much of a deal breaker due to the fact that Mi6 features USB-C which is a lot more widely used compared to iPhone 7 that is featuring its own proprietary lightning connection, making your dongle life even worse. For now.
