Xiaomi Mi 6 teardown

Xiaomi Mi 6

JerryRigEverything bills the Mi 6 as one of the sturdiest it has ever tested, survive scratch, burn, and bend tests with flying colors. But one thing that Nelson never does on his YouTube videos is test how water resistant phones are. With Xiaomi boasting of its first splash proof phone, he got interested in checking out that claim during his teardown. Without drowning the phone, of course.

It turns out, it’s not that water resistant after all and Xiaomi is more or less accurate in calling it simply splash proof. Although Xiaomi does go through the trouble of sealing holes and even removing the headphone jack for the sake of water proofing, it didn’t take the last step of sealing the USB-C port. As such, there is a rather big entry point for water and moisture to go through. Nelson rates the Mi 6 with an IP64 and hopes that the Mi 7 would do beter.
