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

 

Xiaomi's Mi Max is a good, cheap large-screen phone, but its 6.4-inch screen makes it hard to use..

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: The mega 'phablet' reviewed

 

The monstrous 6.44-inch Mi Max seems to be an oddity among today's smartphones, but it certainly can't be judged on that factor alone. Let us find out whether Xiaomi's latest smartphone is any good.

It's really hard to not recommend the Xiaomi Mi Max, as it brings excellent performance at a relatively low price point, while featuring a premium build and a clean design. The only major issue with the device is its video capture capability and low...

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: A phablet with limitations

 

Xiaomi was launched to shake up the smartphone market and has always tried to make appealing products for users. This search has led it to offer devices with very different specifications but that all share one common attribute, a low price. The Xiaomi...

Screen size ; Design ; Performance

Size ; No 800 MHz band

The Xiaomi Mi Max isn't for everyone. It is reserved for those who play a lot of games or watch a lot of content. Be it YouTube videos, movies, TV shows, the Xiaomi Mi Max will come through. And, although it is large, it's easier to carry than a tablet.

Xiaomi Mi Max review

 

Not all good things come in small packages - some come in flippin' big ones too

MIUI 8 - actually kinda great ; Insanely long battery life ; The price is right

It's got a big & bulky brute of a screen ; The camera has a few niggles

The bargain price makes Xiaomi's oversized phone look like seriously good value - if you can actually hold the thing, that is.

Xiaomi Mi Max review: A road warrior with no competition

 

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 Mi Max

 

At 6.44

Simple and clean design; Solidly constructed; Well priced

6.44" frame can be unwieldily; Camera performance mixed

Now for how much all this will cost. Xiaomi has fitted the Mi Max with a R4 700 price tag. As such, for the outlay of a mid-range device, users will be getting something close to a flagship phablet range, minus a few frills of course. In terms of value...
