The power and volume buttons are located on the same side -- and the only problem with that is that I can't use it with my car mount -- the clamps press down on the power button, turning it off.

The fingerprint sensor is under the glass and is no longer a physical button like it was previously.

The dual cameras of the Mi 6 can take Portrait Mode pictures just like the iPhone.

The Mi 6 is stunning to behold and "wow" is usually the first thing you'll hear from others when showing off the phone.
