    If adding Dolby sound to the Mi 6 means bulky front facing speakers count me out. I highly value compactness in a phone. No point in having minimal side bezels if the phone is extra long to accommodate front facing speakers, which I would never use anyway. At home, I play music using Sonos speakers, in the car I use car speakers and when walking I use headphones.

    I’d goddamn love a dual front facing stereo speaker in the next phone. Unlike someone I do not have Sonos speakers at home and I don’t mind occasional video playback when I’m traveling around the world.
    Xiaomi, here’s hoping that you’ll add IP67 waterproofing/dustproofing and OIS. Ramp up your game!
