Corsair, 22 Jun 2019they can buy a MiPad 8. Even larger, even bigger battery. L... morei'd love to get a mipad but no LTE band 4 which enables N.A. 4G. Max 3 has LTE 4.

Well that is a bummer - the ONLY Xiaomi phone that I will support is the MI MAX series. If they stop the MAX, then I will move to a different company.
I am hoping this is just a Xiaomi tactic - announce that they are stopping the MAX series so that customers buy the remaining stock of MI MAX 3 phones, before launching the MI MAX 4.
My two x MI MAX 3 phones are perfect for me, I have no other desire to buy anything different than a MI MAX.
XIAOMI - PLEASE continue the MI MAX series !!!!!

I waited for a long time and accumulated some money for that. Disappointed -_-

Mi Max and Redmi Note are a far cry apart from eachother. on the point that is the whole purpose of the Max-series, size.

I got the Mi Mix 3 as I grew tired of waiting for a more powerful Max with SD660/670/710, but it is very small in comparsion to the Max line. I was looking forward to a Mi Max 4 this summer, so I could get a decent sized phone again. Hopefully they're just skipping a year and will launch a new Max next year.

What you describe is not common behavior for the 1st gen Mi Max (Prime), which I have on latest firmware. It charges just fine with my QC charger from Aukey :-)

Mi Max 4 is an inauspicious number for Chinese.
Time to get a price-cut Mi Max 3 now!!!

Mi Note is flagship phabet.. slowly replaced by Mi Mix series, anyone need flagship phabet will choose Mi Mix..

Mi Max is affordable phabet.. slowly replaced by bezeless redmi note series, same experience with better ergonomic.

So, it make sense for xiaomi to put resource on right direction.

Xiaomi is on the deadline...

whats wrong with mi max line ? i think it can accepted as some users have big fingers, weak eyes to see in small display, and not mention the excitement watching video in bigger display. xiaomi only push their "big handset lover" consumer to other brands then.

But why? Phablets have no competition! Only the Mate 20 X but that's a high end phone, there's nothing in the low or mid range.

I was very very disappointed, almost every day waiting for the news that the mi max 4 will be launched. I hope any the best brand that will release this segment. I hope Samsung or honor Max 9x

I have no problem with Xiaomi discontinuing android updates for three year old phones like my first Xiaomi phone - the Mi Max Prime.

What I absolutely abhor about Xiaomi is it's surreptitious, stealthy disabling of fast charging in the last few software updates for those older (2 years or older Xiaomi phones) that Xiaomi INTENTIONALLY slows down the charging rate and disguises it as a MIUI bug without offering further updates to correct the outrageously slow 200mA charging rate. This rate is drastically down (90% lower for crying out loud!) from fast charging and even regular charging rate which outputs a minimum of 2000mA. And there's nothing you can do about it other than throw away your Xiaomi phone and not buying another Xiaomi phone ever!

Or if you do buy a new one, to avoid installing the last few MIUI software updates that are meant to kill your 2-3 year old Xiaomi phone. That's PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE, XIAOMI STYLE. BE SERIOUSLY WARNED. If you have an older Xiaomi phone
approaching 2 years old or older (Ex. Xiaomi Pocophone F1), AVOID/DO NOT EVER INSTALLI ANY MIUI software update. It will mysteriously render your Xiaomi phone's fast charging to ultra slow charging you'd wish you've never updated. And with MIUI 10 and above, Xiaomi intentionally disabled rollback to older MIUI software that didn't have the ultra slow charging 'ENGINEERED' bug.

What a pity ! I love my MI Max 3. It's an almost unbeatable combination of performance and price. You don't have to worry about charging every day. Even when I use GPS a lot at the end of the day there is sufficient juice left.

I too was really looking forward and held off buying another phone they just lost a costumer maybe permanently ...
