Xiaomi Mi Max Review

by TEAM Tech ExpoundJuly 1, 2016

The Mi Max smartphone from Xiaomi  was launched in May 2016. Many tech enthusiasts do not consider it as a standard smartphone given its huge size. However, the Mi Max is an affordable mid-range smartphone, which promises to deliver a great experience, as a phablet.

Xiaomi’s Mi Max smartphone launched in May 2016 runs Android 6.0.1 and is powered by a 4850mAh non removable battery, weighs 203.00 grams and measures 173.10 x 88.30 x 7.50 (height x width x thickness).  The phone comes with a 6.44-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels at a PPI of 342 pixels per inch and is powered by hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor and armed with 32GB RAM which can be further expanded up to 128GB via the standard microSD card. As far as the camera is concerned, it is equipped with dual cameras. While a 5-megapixel camera in front helps to take selfies, it also comes with a megapixel primary camera on the rear.

But the great advantage of this device is very obvious in the fact that it is dual SIMs (Nano-SIM and Micro-SIM) compatible and comes with standard connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 3G and even 4G.


Positives:

– Fairly Good Display
– Average performance
– Fast Finger print reader
– Good sound quality
– Great battery life
– MIUI has changed and is good after getting used to it

Negatives:

– No availability in the US
– Build quality is poor
– Not readable in sunlight
– Quick Charge 3.0 charger not included in the box
– Over sharpening in image processing

 

Bottom Line:

The Xiaomi Mi Max is a smartphone that seems like an experiment by Xiaomi and was was launched in May 2016. It has a relatively low price, however this means that it had to compromise in some areas. The build quality is poor along with many other disappointing attributes. But nonetheless, it has to be admitted that Xiaomi’s Mi Max has lots to offer for the price, with a moderate battery life and an average performance overall which make it a fair option for some users, but for others there are many better options out there.
