iPhone 6 is certainly more popular since this US-manufactured phone has the luxury of being sold all over the world. The clamor for its release on Sept. 19 had already made worldwide users want to pre-order it as early as Sept. 12.

On the other hand, the Chinese Xiaomi only has a cult following in its homeland. However, it already sold over 18.7 million smartphones last year, and the numbers are expected to increase up to 300 percent in 2014. The brand is also selling better than Apple and Samsung in China. It would probably sell more if it will given a chance to have a worldwide market just like the iPhone 6.
