Hi Mi Fans,
The Xiaomi Mi 6 is splash resistant, but what givesit that resistance? And why isn’t it rated for full water resistance? The bestway to find that out is to take the phone apart. And while he was at it, JerryRigEverything also stripped the back glass of paint to show off theinternals of the phone.


It seems that Xiaomi got 90% of the way there towaterproofing the Mi 6. The SIM slot has a rubber seal, there’s no headphonejack and every speaker and mic grille have special mesh screens that keep waterout. The one hole that’s left wide open is the USB-C port - there’s nowaterproofing on it at all.

Perhaps Xiaomi can finish the job for the Mi 6Plus?

As for disassembling the rest of the phone, it’s allstandard Philips head screws and some sticky tape - there are no majorroadblocks to taking the Mi 6 apart. Here, watch a pro do it:
