Xiaomi Mi 6 Blue Broken: Looks Deplorable

Probably the hardest decision for smartphone makers is the housing material. If a phone comes with a plastic body, it will get hotter quickly. Plus, devices with such a body bring a cheap-phone-look. If a phone features a metal housing, it is heavier. Fingerprints are left on it easily. And finally, it’s uncomfortable to hold when it gets hotter. So top brands and those companies that want to make a worthy high-end smartphone, pack them with either ceramic or glass housing. The latter can be found on many Apple and Sony products. As for Xiaomi, the most wanted material for Mi devices is ceramic. The first handset with such a housing was the Xiaomi Mi 5. The next-gen Xiaomi Mi 5S came with a metal body. And when the Mi MIX was released, we started to believe high-end phones of this company will feature ceramic housing in the future. Fortunately, the Xiaomi Mi 6 didn’t disappoint us.

      1. Yeah but that was from more than 5 generations ago. They haven’t made a glass back phone since then. I’d hardly call that a trademark of Apple anymore.
