21 November 2018
It's been certified by the Bluetooth SIG and the EEC, and will apparently be available at Amazon on December 1.

Blown out detailts, loss of shadow details, dim colors and so on. At least on the videos I've seen. Saw a video comparison also, and the Xiaomi seemed more stabilized and colors did not wash out like on the Magic 2.

It's been some time since I looked up either device now, as I'm bored with waiting.

Same thing for front camera too. Frankie Tech posted video from front facing camera, and praising it, but the video quality was horrible. Selfie video on the Mi Mix 3 on the other hand is tack sharp and colors (skin) look great.

The Mix line is Xiaomi's flagship, so they've gone all in. Both HW and SW. Honor is the budget line of Huawei and it's not to eat up any of Mate og P-series market share, so that's probably the reason they don't go all in and give it great processing - or they rushed it in time for Xiaomi's launch and the Honor Magic 2 may get better camera SW eventually.

Honor magic 2 ftw

Honor (Huawei) can, and should do, better. Hopefully they will improve it in future update. I really like the gradient blue one, looks great, but I'm not paying that price for so weak camera performance.

Mi Mix 3 is sturdy as can be when using it with the included case. The slight wiggling that is possible is due to the slider mechanism. It's not like old sliders on "rails", so it can move a little from side to side, but it's harmless and as mentioned the included case keeps it from moving side to side.

Some say the Mi Mix 3 comes to Europe already on December 1st. I hope they are correct.

Neah, the Magic 2 seems like a more solid build for the same money plus the under-screen FGS minus the locked bootloader.
When is this one getting to Europe?

We're all waiting for Xiaomi Mi 8 SE in EU, but since it won't happen probably Meizu 16X is the better option.

Have owned 3 diffrent generations phones by Xiaomi , the build quality is bad and the reliability worse. Random freezes , apps and camera force closing and geting stuck on standby.

Its been available for pre order in Finland for some time, so was assuming its coming in near weeks ( or within a month ). Actually interested in the price, but i would wait for the S model instead. Looking at my options for 2019

tried this phone at a Xiaomi store in China, very heavy and the finger print sensor is hard to reach. Camera and hardware are awesome, it needs some more refinement on the overall package.
