Xiaomi Mi Note vs Samsung Galaxy S5 vs Apple iPhone 6: specs comparison

10

Enter the Xiaomi Mi Note, the all-new flagship device of one of the largest smartphone makers in the world right now. It, alongside its bigger and more spec'd brother, the Mi Note Pro, is by no means sub-par to most of the higher-tier phones available right now, but what made us the biggest impression is the slightly higher price tag that Xiaomi asks for its new crop of devices. But we digress.

The device surely packs some potent silicon muscle under the hood, but how does it fare against the more popular device out there, the battle-worn and scarred Samsung Galaxy S5 and the ever-fierce Apple iPhone 6. A pretty fierce competition, if you ask us, but we believe that Xiaomi's newest will probably appeal to those who are on the market for a device that offers some reasonable bang for the buck, complemented by well-rounded design.

Let's grab some pop corn and tune in for the specs battle!
