Xiaomi Mi Note Pro vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Apple iPhone 6 Plus: specs comparison

21
If you're just tuning in, Xiaomi announced a new batch of phablets earlier, the Xiaomi Mi Note and the Mi Note Pro, which have the potential to stir the already-dynamic phablet market once again. Yet, Xiaomi will have some tough time battling the bigger names in the industry, as their phablet offerings have already made a name for themselves.

What does Xiaomi bring to the table? Some pretty respectable hardware specs! Just mentioning Snapdragon 810, 4GB of RAM, and a Quad HD display can make hardcore smartphone fans salivate with pure bliss. Surely, the Mi Note Pro is the more compelling device of the new Xiaomi duo.

That's why we decided to put it up against Samsung's S Pen powerhouse, the Galaxy Note 4, and the largest Apple iPhone ever made, the iPhone 6 Plus, and see who's got the best specs. What a respectable trio! What a fierce phablet battle!
