Xiaomi's newly released Mi Note phablet has drawn a lot of comparisons to Apple's iPhone 6 Plus (not least from Xiaomi itself). But are those comparisons warranted? We've already done our hands-on with the Mi Note, but now we'll be taking a closer look to see how it holds up to scrutiny when placed side by side with the iPhone 6 Plus.
Xiaomi has clearly raised its game with the Mi Note. The premium phablet looks just as good as Apple's iPhone 6 Plus, which we rated as one of the best built and designed phablets of 2014. In a few areas - bezel size, camera bump, screen size - the Mi Note actually outdoes the 6 Plus, an impressive feat. Of course, design and build is just one aspect of a phone's overall rating. How will the Mi Note perform in other areas? You'll have to wait for our full review, coming soon, to find out!
