Xiaomi Mi Max review: Hulked up

06 June 2016
Goodbye Alexander Bell, hello Tim Berners-Lee and Ray Tomlinson. The inventor of the telephone would not have approved of the hulking 6.44" but the Xiaomi Mi Max is the kind of device the pioneers of WWW and email would love it.

What's the biggest capacity of SDCard/external memory ever you guys inserted in and still works fine with this phone? Perhaps 128, or 256 GB?

            I had updated my MI MAX to the newest Nougat 7.0 Update, offered on device. But the moment I applied the update after the reboot, the touch stopped working (the display works absolutely fine, but the touch isn't accepted at all). As I am out of the warranty period, I have to run to other service centers for the problem, If anyone can help? I didn't encounter a single problem before this.

                  I've been using this one for nearly 5 months. Amazing device, since electronics overly priced here i though i would give Xiaomi a shot. Everyone said don't buy because its chinese and it would be not a good investment. Honestly i bought it with fear. But when i started using Mi Max i understood this device has price/performance and huge battery life which is extremely nice for me. Didnt tried quick charge yet i'll buy the Xiaomi Powerbank which supports QC 2.0. Otherwise i was almost buying the Xperia XA ULTRA but when i saw MTK chipset i rejected buying and bought mi max 3/64. It's my first phone which has 64 GB storage. I only wish i could save more money and buy 128 GB one since i ran out on storage. Best phone you can find that has performance/price equatition. And i'm a big screen lover before Mi Max i couldn't find suitable phone (since even 6" stands like a small object on my hand) after Mi Max i am very happy. 6.44" screen with FHD resolution just fitting right here. Maybe i'll buy Mi Max 3 (cant get mimax 2 no money for it atm). Maybe they dump resolution to QHD and give a size bump to 6.5 or 6.7. Bigger is better for me.

                    Best phone to have.Gaming-10/10, Browsing-15/10, Camera-7/10. Used it for 9 months now. My son is a heavy gamer.Handles the toughest games well.Will buy the next model for myself.Best value for money for phones in this range.The screen size is the best.Got a solid leather case for it. Essential to get the case.

                      I saw a picture of the memory for the Mi Max. It shows 2 memories. System memory and internal memory.
                      When I install Whatsapp application. will it be install in the internal memory or system memory? and what about the Whatsapp's Media. My concern is the whatsapp's Media only as it takes the biggest part of the memory.
                      see the picture of the memories of the Mi Max taken by AnTuTu Benchmark here in this link

                                        This is the most genuine & accurate review and i appreciate the reviewer for honest review.I am an owner of note 5 as well as mi max and i fully agree with what has been written in review.It is the best phone in the range & has great performance,the best battery performace ( my main criteria),a great display ( i like in better than amoled for not giving me oversaturation,caliberation is really great & i find sunlight legibility great and on par with my galaxy note 5),MIUI ( i love it for providing so much customisations and is very fluid,I like such good skins which are on par with native android skin, chinese rom is much better with additional functions and i love it),great performance without being a comprimise on battery( it outperformed my note 5 in Antutu scoring 84105,in single core geekbench 4 scoring 1449,Close to it on multicore scoring 3419,better vellamo metal score with similar broswer score & a little less multicore score as compared to my note 5 so i woud say its very fast),good camera but not best( low light prformance not on par with my note 5 but who takespictures in dark thats a question otherwise camera takes great pictures in good light in day with very accurate colour and details,beter than oversaturated pic by my note 5,but u need to adjust contast and sharpness to low level to get best pics),supports fast charging and volte,audio quality is better than my note 5 so very good and the best part is its not heavy on ur pocket.get it if it fits in criteria.
