Xiaomi Mi Mix review: Mi-Sci-Fi

1 December 2016
Xiaomi Mi Mix is one of those rare jewels on the market that needs no introductions. An all-ceramic smartphone with an edge-to-edge screen is a device that draws all the attention. It’s a high-tech dream come true and it sure looks like a Sci-Fi movie prop.

Oh man... if only you could see the future when you wrote that comment πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Meanwhile in 2021 the average phone size is 6.7 inches lol

Still rocking this in 2021! Battery life has deteriorated a bit, but otherwise fully functional and very capable.

I have a problem charging my phone..... It's very slow ..... Is it a common thing or do i need to buy a new one?

It's a pretty handy phone with an affordable price. The screen size is perfect for reading and the lasting battery makes it more of a company for traveling. The large storage can make my phone a huge tool for me because I can install many applications for my different needs, I can store workout videos, videos related with my study and movies and some inspirational videos. The camera is also amazing. The only thing I am not satisfied with it is that I can't hear the other side's voice clearly when I make calls on a free hand mood.

It isn't selling that well anymore. And if last quarter is anything to go by more people in the world are ok with their info "being sent to the motherland" than giving it to Apple even if they "emit more than the allowable EMR"

Probably has something to do with how easy it is to hack an android or iOS device these days. Xiaomi's proven that they are on top of things like government tracking and selling consumer data to the NSA.

I was the same exact way. But now I own one. It is so comfortable to use. I am amazed that I can hold the thing in my hand so easily. Couple that with Xiaomi's very good one handed mode on MIUI and you'll be amazed that you can handle this monster of a phone in one single hand. Comfortably! This thing is the most impressive smartphone I've ever encountered.

The facts are there. AMOLED has burn in and doesn't last as long. It isn't even sharper than LCD and whites are much harder for AMOLED to get since too much white will quickly cause burn in. LCD is still the optimal screen technology so far.

I thought for sure the phone would be too big and feel uncomfortable. It doesn't. At all. it is really like I'm holding a normal phone but the screen is just tremendous

AnonD-668739, 14 May 2017Good Article But look at size of Xiaomi mix Opps and the p... moreDoogee copy isn't nearly as powerful. I have a real MIX and I can tell you there's no problems with this big phone. It really feels like a regular sized phone even though it is much bigger than most. And you'll realy appreciate the 6.4" screen. Normal phone sizes will look so tiny after and you'll end up spoiled because you can literally hold the device at arms length and see everything clearly.

Xiaomi mi mix is the best for design and long lasting battery life. But they need to improve their camera capability and should use super amoled display...

Xiaomi did it right: 5.15 for those that want practical use, 6.4 for those that want productivity, the in-between is a waste of time, they're neither easy to handle nor very productive.

Mi Mix's screen dwarfs any other, it's like having your tablet everywhere, instead it's small enough to be pocketable. Sweet-spot size for those that want an *actual* phablet instead of toy phablets with tiny screens.

Xiaomi seldom gets the display size right in their better phones. Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi6 with 5.15 inch display is all wrong. Naturally they will not be best seller in anyway although they have amazing internals . Next , Mi Mix and Mi Max with 6.44 inch display... too big to handle. They should realize the sweet spot for display is 5.5 inch to 6 inch. Xiaomi should have a flagship with 6 inch display. Its 5.7 inch display phones never get out of China!

First of all, it's a China brand. Who knows if this device emits more than the allowable EMR and or sends back user data to its mother factory? Second, who needs an all-screen mobile device? If you drop it, it's sure to crack even if it is protected with gorilla glass 6 (of course, they will use a copy version not the original technology). Third and lastly, it's just too big of a phone that anybody who sees you use it as a phone will most probably laugh at you. In addition, the pixel density of the screen display is laughable at that size screen! I think I'll pass.
