After weeks and weeks of leaks, the Xiaomi Mi 6X , a device that we hope will reach the European market under the name of Xiaomi Mi A2 and that, as is usual in the brand, comes with a very high quality / price ratio and very balanced features.
Xiaomi has put all its good work in its new mid-range, and although we have told you all the details of the new Mi 6X, it is worth comparing it with some of its most direct rivals, in order to draw some conclusions that can help us in our purchase decision. This time we will face the Xiaomi Mi 6X against the Huawei P20 Lite and the Moto G6 , two devices that are the best in this 2018 in a price range of between 200 and 400 euros. Here we go.
We start by the outside of our candidates, and here we can see how Xiaomi returns to bet on aluminum in a device that thanks to its 18: 9 screen and its very simple and fluid design, it is very elegant in the hand. It is true that both the Huawei P20 Lite and Moto G6 have a more identifying appearance that gives them identity and a material like glass that makes them appear to be more premium terminals, but in any case, the Xiaomi Mi 6X does not detract from the rest .
If we had to give a winner in this section , possibly we would say that the Huawei P20 Lite It is the just deserving, since its screen has the smallest edges, thanks to the use of a notch. Yes, we are looking for a smartphone that still retains the physical type start button, the Moto G6 is the only one that is still betting on this solution.
A fact to be highlighted is the fact that the solutions of double camera are prevailing in the mid-range , when until last year, only the terminals of the highest range made use of this type of solutions.
We go inside these devices, and here we see how they all include a version with 4 GB of RAM , although curiously, it is the Xiaomi My 6X the only that offers a version with 6 GB of RAM , so if we are very intensive users and we love having 40 applications open at once, the Xiaomi Mi 6X is the smartphone of choice.
The same thing happens with the gross power , where Xiaomi has bet very strong with the election of the Snapdragon 660, a SoC quite more powerful than the Kirin 650 of the P20 Lite, and what to say, that the SD 450 of the Moto G6. So, if we plan to run games and applications demanding, the Xiaomi Mi 6X is once again the winning option, followed by the Huawei P20 Lite.
The 3 devices integrate one IPS type screen , that go from 5.7 to 5.99 inches. Here the greater diagonal it is offered again by Xiaomi Mi 6X , although Huawei offers us with its P20 Lite an extra resolution that we may not notice at first sight. If we are the ones who want a screen as large as possible, we must choose the Xiaomi Mi 6X, if we otherwise look for a more compact smartphone, the P20 Lite will be a great option, as long as we do not mind the notch.
We go with the storage, Here we start with the 32 GB of the most basic model of the Moto G6, with 64 GB available in all 3 models and with him Xiaomi Mi 6X re-emphasizing with the possibility of buying a version with 128 GB storage, something unthinkable until recently for a mid-range device. Another point in favor of the Xiaomi without a doubt.
Xiaomi has recently bet very strong for the Photography , and the Xiaomi Mi 6X is a clear proof of that. It is difficult to evaluate a photographic section without testing the device, but a priori, the Xiaomi’s double camera manages better resolutions ( 20 + 12Mp x) as well as a better opening of f.1.75, As far as software and optimization issues aside, the Xiaomi Mi 6x would once again be one of the best mid-range photo smartphones, something that a front camera with another 20Mpx helps with.
We continue with the battery , where the 3 candidates they oscillate around 3000 mAh , yes, here we must break a spear in favor of the Moto G6, which thanks to a less demanding processor and a little less screen, should be the one that offers the best autonomy.
Well, the truth is that if we look at the power / euro ratio , the Xiaomi My 6X wins from street . It is not only that it is the only one that offers 6 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of storage, is that this latest version costs 259 euros in China, and although in Spain that figure will rise to about 280 euros, it is still significantly cheaper that the Huawei P20 Lite, which with a price of 335 euros (Amazon price today), makes us pay for the brand and the design of its screen.
The Moto G6 comes out somewhat better, since it provides a design plus and we have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage for 269 euros, but still, it is still more expensive than the Xiaomi Mi 6X equivalent, which also incorporates a SoC much more powerful.
And it is that everything points to Xiaomi has done their homework very well, studying the competition thoroughly and offering the maximum for every euro we pay. It may not be the most beautiful phone in the comparison, or that your layer of personalization we do not like, but the truth is that it is the most powerful phone of the three analyzed and its photographic section promises a lot. If in the end it arrives in Europe like the Xiaomi Mi A2, we are sure it will be a sales success, yes, we will miss the headphone jack.
