So it seems like one of the best devices of 2017 needs a formal introduction to my Trinidad & Tobago peoples. Currently, Xiaomi is the 5th largest smartphone manufacturer in the world and makes some of the best devices on the market.  So allow Droid Island to introduce you to the Xiaomi Mi 6 and 6 reasons to make it your next device.

The Faster Snapdragon 835 – Now, we all know that the current top CPU powering most of your favourite handsets is the Snapdragon 835. What most people do not know is that there are different versions of the CPU. The Samsung S8, for example, uses the slower 835 CPU clocked at 2.35ghz and the Mi 6 uses the faster 2.45ghz Snapdragon 835.

The Right Mix Of Features – Most times, all these new phones come out with bells and whistles that only a small fraction of users will actually put to use. There are however features that even the most basic smartphone user can put to use and enjoy. Stereo speakers for better sound, Quick Charge 3.0 for faster battery charging, OIS for better photography and videography, splash resistance for those untimely spills, dual sim, and the new Bluetooth 5.0.


 Build Quality –  The Mi 6 is has an amazing in hand feeling. No video, no picture, not word of mouth can showcase just how great this device feels in your hand. Xiaomi has steadily been refining the designs of their devices, and with every iteration of the Mi series, they are putting out devices that make you question why you should ever get a different device.


Photography/Videography – Dual 12mp sensors with OIS are packed into a 5.1” body. 1 of the 12mp sensors is a wide angle lens, while the 2nd 12mp sensor is a telephoto lens (think iPhone 7 plus) that’s also capable of 2x lossless zoom. Essentially when you zoom in to shoot pictures, the pictures become grainy while on the Mi 6, it does a much better job of not losing the information and keeping the picture in good quality. The OIS also helps out with low light camera performance and smoothing out video footage if you got shaky hands.


Storage, Memory & Colors –  The device comes in 2 configurations. 64gb or 128gb of storage while both variants have 6gb of RAM to give you that buttery smooth performance. The colour options are also pretty dope. They come in Ceramic black, blue w/gold trim, black, and white.


Price – You can search the internet for some great deals on the device and if you are located in Trinidad, you can grab one of these bad boys for as low as $4000ttd. It’s a steal for everything this device is packing, and given the prices of some of the other flagships, this is definitely something that should be more sought after than other devices.


Well, those are our top 6 reasons why you should run out and grab yourself a Xiaomi Mi 6. If you have any questions about the device whatsoever, please do not hesitate to send a message or shoot a call.
