Xiaomi Mi Max dark grey

 

I'm personally not a fan. Phones don't need to be small, but they also shouldn't be hard to use one-handed. And let's be clear here, the Max is a strictly two-handed affair if you want to use it without difficulty (unless you have really large hands)....

The Xiaomi Mi Max has a brilliant, massive 6.4-inch screen and ridiculously good battery life.

The phone's enormous size makes it hard to use one-handed; it's also heavy and sticks out uncomfortably in your pants pocket.

The Xiaomi Mi Max's premium build, amazing battery life and superlarge screen make this a good phone for watching videos and playing games but the size makes it hard to use with one hand.

Xiaomi Mi Max Review

 

6 years since its inception, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is still busy selling quality handsets at pupil-dilating prices. The Mi Max is its newest proposition – a gargantuan 6.44-inch phablet with a sleek metal body, nice specs, and seemingly great...

Solid build quality ; Fast fingerprint scanner ; Good value for money

Hard to get outside Asia ; Display is a bit hard to read outdoors ; Problematic video recording

There are few direct competitors to the Mi Max, for handsets with screens this big are rare and you're more likely to settle for a 6-inch or 7-inch device if you are looking for an alternative. And then, there's the price. In China, India and...

Xiaomi Mi Max Review Tim Schiesser

 

There are plenty of large phones to choose from these days: the iPhone 7 Plus, the Galaxy Note 7, the OnePlus 3, and many others that feature displays at least 5.5-inches in size. But nothing compares to the Xiaomi Mi Max, a gigantic 6.4-inch phablet...

Powerful Snapdragon 650 SoC. Very affordable for what you get. Great metal build, fingerprint sensor and enormous battery. Huge display is perfect for media consumption.

Impossible to use in one hand without the help of software. MIUI is a very heavy Android skin, and software updates are rare.

Xiaomi Mi Max Review

 

Is it a smartphone or a phablet? Is 6.44 inches too big for a daily driver? We answer these and more in this, our Xiaom Mi Max review!

Good display ; Smooth performance ; Fairly fast fingerprint reader ; Good sound quality ; Excellent battery life ; Good camera for the price ; MIUI is enjoyable to use once you get used to it

No U.S. availability ; Lack of U.S. 4G LTE support ; Shockingly poor build quality ; Less than average sunlight readability ; Quick Charge 3.0 charger not included in the box ; Image processing has some minor quirks like oversharpening ; Hellish...

The Mi Max certainly feels like a first attempt at what is largely unchartered territory for Xiaomi. While it has undercut the competition in price, it has also cut corners in many areas: the device's cheap build quality, poor imported device software...

Xiaomi Mi Max review: A road warrior with no competition - Tech2

 

With capable hardware and software, does the Xiaomi Mi Max beat competition or does it just flounder in the sea of smartphones?

The Xiaomi Mi Max has few competitors in the ‘Max’ category. As we have mentioned in past reviews, it’s not just the battery life that matters but the overall package and Xiaomi seems to have built a solid smartphone with a solid battery life. We were...

Xiaomi's humongous Mi Max phone is too much phone to handle

 

If the phrase "too big" never made it into your vocabulary, then the 6.4-inch Xiaomi Mi Max was made for people like you. The display is bright and the battery lasts for a good, long time, but the question for any phone this large will always come back...

Xiaomi Mi Max (3GB) review: Great price, but not for all

All in all, the Xiaomi Mi Max boasts of a compact form factor, metal body, fingerprint scanner, long battery life along with regular phone features, which are absent in most budget Android tablets.

Xiaomi Mi Max. Первый взгляд

 

Тонкий корпус из алюминиевого сплава, огромный дисплей с диагональю 6.44 дюйма, аккумулятор емкостью 4850 мАч, а также новая версия MIUI 8, 3 или 4 ГБ оперативной памяти и «приятный ценник» (китайский)…
