    Default Samsung S6 Or Xiaomi MI4

    Well, I am planing to buy a new smartphone heard very much about the "Xiaomi MI4" but as we all know that Samsung S6 is already leading the market. As per the specification Samsung offer Octa-Core 1.5 GHz Processor and MI4 offers "Quad-Core 2.5 GHz Processor. One of my friends using MI4 and I have checked the performance already and very satisfy with it. I haven't used the Samsung S6 so on my curious side I want to know more about this device before buying the product. I need your suggestion here.

    Personally I'd choose the Samsung galaxy S6 EDGE model if I was to choose between the two devices, as the S6 EDGE as pretty much blown every other phone out of the water in all the reviews and the bench test scores.

    While I've not got one myself yet, I know a few people that have and they say the Samsung is the best phone they've ever had.

    The only downside to the device is the cost, as they are on the expensive side, compared to other phones on the market.

    @lokielovesbunny I would choose a galaxy S6 over Xiaomi Mi 4, any day. The reason being a high quality camera and a powerful CPU, along with more amount of RAM offered with Galaxy S6. On the other hand, Mi4 suffered wrath of the public and a huge price cut within a short span of time. The Xiaomi Mi4 suffered some serious heating issues due to its processor which was the main cause for its price cut and negative reviews. The price of Xiaomi Mi4 is very attractive though, but heating issue is something which I could not avoid as it's going to be a big concern for me.

    The price is the big issue for a lot of people and when they see similar specification but a huge difference in price, they'll obviously always go for the cheapest option.

    This is usually false economy though, and while buying a Samsung S6 will cost more at the start, you know that device will last a number of years, unlike some of the other cheaper models that are available.

    @Pwarbi You're right! The biggest attraction for people is the price tag of Xiaomi Mi4, considering the features it provides. While having strong features on the paper, it doesn't live up to the mark. There are several reviews on Flipkart complaining about the heating issue of Xiaomi Mi4, some of them even stated about the restarting problem of the phone. Maybe, all those issues could be resolved later by an OTA update, but for now it's a big concern. However, I don't like the pricing of the latest branded smartphones in the market. I mean 700-800$ for a phone is a trend now a days, but I feel it's not worth paying too much for a phone.

    You are right. I am also not a big fan of spending too much on costly phones, especially when there are new models coming up every day. I think it is a status symbol nowadays like what is happening in the case of Apple iPhones.

    What I usually do is to wait for a couple of months to get the phone at a lower rate and it works almost all the time. However, the Samsung Galaxy which I use is around 1.5 years old. I will not even think of changing it for next two years at least. It is fully in sync with my requirements, then why should I look for another phone!

    As regards to the pricing of the latest devices, they do seem to be going up and up, and its a trend I think that's only set to continue because people are stupid enough to pay it.

    Apple and Samsung might be busy competing against each other and leaving the rest behind in terms of technology, but sooner or later there will come a point and people will say enough is enough regarding the price.

    As per a recent research report Samsung is really struggling to face stiff competition from other Android phone makers. As per reports, Samsung will be out of the business in less than five years time. It faces competition from brands like Xiaomi that offers good specification at low rates. Samsung is also planning to launch its most awaited Samsung Galaxy S7 at a cheaper rate than Galaxy S6. Apple iPhones also pose a serious threat to Samsung.

    Unlike iOS, in Android there are large number of players and every day new mobile phones are being introduced with affordable price tags.

    The Samsung Galaxy S6 wins the most important points, such as Camera, performance and quality of the display. While the MI4 wins in battery life.Entretanto, the points at which the Samsung Galaxy S6 wins are slightly higher than the MI4. Another thing, are you an enthusiastic user? And the last thing, the price difference between them in your country. Probably the Samsung Galaxy S6 is more expensive than MI4, but if the price difference between them is small is better to buy the Galaxy S6.

Also the quality of the samsung s6 is probably better than the xiaomi as s6 is very high quality. These are some reasons samsung galaxy s6 is better than the xoami MI4.

    I agree with you. Moreover Samsung has more reliability than Xiaomi. The question is the price.

    The price kind of depends on which carrier you get it from. Also depends if you bought online without any contracts.
