Xiaomi may be one of the largest smartphone vendors in the world, but recent spotlight on the Chinese company has seen it drawn into the copycat saga that has dogged Apple and Samsung for quite some time. The Beijing headquartered company is well known for producing relatively high-end smartphones, amongst other items of consumer technology, for seemingly budget prices, but the company has been accused of copying Apple’s software and design elements in a number of its Mi device.

These days, it seems it has become sort of a trend in the tech world for companies that don’t usually make smartphones to jump onto the bandwagon, with Kodak being a prime example here.

Speculation regarding Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6s is starting to come through thick and fast. We now well and truly find ourselves in the middle of that exciting, and sometimes frustrating, period where new visual and technical specification leaks come out of the woodwork from those who claim to have “familiarity with the situation.” We can already be fairly confident that Apple’s iPhone 6s will come with Force Touch capabilities, as well as being offered in a new color option that has been described as either Rose Gold or Pink, so naturally, those Chinese clone manufacturers have jumped immediately onto the bandwagon and produced a $200 clone of the iPhone 6s complete with the speculated new color option.

The ‘Battle of the Sixes’ report has been published by and it makes for some interesting reading. GameBench created the report as an opportunity to create the “first objective comparison of the Apple iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 on the basis of real-world gaming performance.” Put simply, if you’re heavily into high-end mobile gaming on your smartphone, are you better off investing in Apple’s iPhone 6 or Samsung’s Galaxy S6?
