::: MI MAX - - FULL REVIEW ::: Mi Max is a massive Phablet. It is a clear winner in this segment. Reviewing after 3 months of usage.Bought on Open Sale July. + Battery 4850mAh battery gives an awesome battery standby and also talk time. With 4G ON all time and im multitasker and I get an Whole day battery. + Performance Updated to MIUI 8 , features and apps works smooth.No lags during multitasking. Gaming is really good on this device. Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 64-bit Hexa-Core 1.8Ghz coupled with Adreno 510 GPU does an excellent job in multitasking,gamming,etc. +Gaming I will say it's a Perfect choice for gamers. In my point plastering games on this device is a Pleasure !!. I have played Nova 3,No Limits, Most Wanted,KombatX,Combat5,Asphalt8,SanAndreas,RealRacing,GTRacing,FIFA15/16.Especially FIFA,Racing are Awesome to play.heats around FP Sensor only on heavy gaming. +MIUI 8 Dual apps, Scroll Screenshot, Second space, New UI Look,Mobile manageretc. MIUI 8 is really attractive. im not an MIUI fan, but became using MIUI 8. + Display With its massive 6.44" Full HD Display ...it is great for watching movies, gaming, Studies. It's edge curved 2.5D Glass Display is So smooth and brilliant touch and response. During sunlight, on full brightness, its visible, not so perfect but in bright sunlight its visible though. Thumbs Up !! Applying a Perfect Screenguard is recommended; No tempered glass as it ruins the look and peels off easily while swiping edges as it has a 2.5D Glass. Gorilla Glass 3 ...gorilla glasses are really not upto mark, they say its Scratch resistant but they arent.Anyway it jt just adds up a protection for the main display. + Camera Rear Camera: Macro photography with Manual Mode-manual focus is just great with outdoors. I also have Zenfone Selfie that has a laser AF.Im really impressed with the capability of taking macro shots. 4K video recorning is average. Selfie: Selfies Comes out good in sunlight or outdoor.Its not good with indoors. + Speaker and Audio Jack Sound via speaker is OK. Not soo loud but Loud. Use a high quality earphones for better experience. I love hearing songs and music. I use "Asus ZenEar" and tried "Sennheiser CX180" and I recommend Asus. + Handling The is a Phablet and it is recommended not do buy if your hands are small. One hand usage is difficult even for big hands like me. +Built Quality The Body made of Aluminium back. Recommended to use a Transparent Silicone Cover..I recommend Brand: "Febelo" that i use for a good quality Silicone Cover. The body of the phone is slippery and for gripness, protection, defenetly buy a Silicone cover. Dont waste on Hybrid case, flipcovers.. +FP Sensor Fingerprint sensor accuracy is good 7/10 tries.Can store 5 fingerprints. Second space in MIUI 8 can have separate finger prints. + Charging It supports Fast Charging. I use my Letv le 1s fast charger and its just Perfectly work with Quick Charge 3.0. Charging time is fast with my Letv le 1s charger. + IR Remote IR Remote option is really very helpful in controlling with my AC,TV,Set topbox,Projector,etc. + Storage and RAM I got 24.35GB out of 32GB memory. Without normally get 1.9GB out of 3GB. Memory management is really well balanced and no problems with multitasking. + Call quality The reception call quality is really very good on this device. VoLTE option is available to improve call quality. I have no issue in this area. You can record calls. - Indoor camera clicks are average. - Built Quality I mean the Body of the phone... can be improvedBut conisdering such a big phone, no offence. - Difficult with single hand usage - Universal remote option is missing - Speaker sound quality could be more louder. - No fast charger provided within three box.You have to buy a fast charger separately.(The OEM charger provided in-box is a normal charger). -Xiaomi could provide a screen guard and case for such phones like Mi Max. :: Short Review :: +Battery Life +Massive Display +Camera(Rear & Front) in Outdoor Sunlights +Fast Charging +FP Sensor +Aluminium Finish +Reception Quality is good + VoLTE -No Fast Charger Provided In-Box -IR Remote app needs upggrade for "Universal Remote" option -Built Quality is not great (Not a big problem) -Audio Jack not that awesome but great( Use "Asus ZenEar" such Earphones for enhanced experience) -Camera(Rear & Front) in Indoors are Average/Poor -Speaker Loudness = Average-Above Average Conclusion: Awesome Phablet till now and within the budget of 20k this 15k Mi Max rocks. On meeting with the above cons ,i didnt get disapponted where I get the amazing Pros! . Thank you so much "Xiaomi" and "Flipkart" . One star reduced(Actually I Rate 4.3/5.0 ) for Body built Quality, but thats not diaappointing, its usual with metal make.(Nota big Problem). Its a Clear Option to Buy.
Verdict: The Xiaomi Mi Max is big; big on entertainment, performance and size. It is a great device for media consumption. While some may find it a bit large, if a big screen phone is what you seek, the Mi Max is a very good smartphone to choose. Key Highlights: Great display for viewing content Smooth performance Feels premium Excellent battery life No heating issues Phablet sized (173.1 x 88.3 x 7.5 mm) Average camera performance in low-light conditions The Experience: Clearly meant for big screen fans, the Xiaomi Mi Max is all about scale and no matter how you look at it, the device is humongous. In terms of entertainment, whether it’s movies, gaming or even extensive web browsing, the device lends itself pretty well. The full HD display is fairly bright and offers good quality in terms of colours. On the overall performance and appeal front, the Mi Max is fast, feels premium and offers excellent battery life for a big screen device. In terms of real-world scenario, the Mi Max will run all modern day heavy applications and games with ease and is a capable multitasking device as well. Battery-life will vary from 2-3 days depending upon usage and that by itself is a good indication of how the device is well suited for power users (once you get past the sheer size and weight). Staying on the topic of multitasking and power users, we are happy to report that the smartphone does not suffer from any heating issues. The Snapdragon 650 SoC offers sweet performance without setting off any alarm bells on the thermal map. The speakers on the Mi Max offer adequate sound in terms of loudness and quality, ensuring justice to the large screen device. The camera on the Xiaomi Mi Max is actually one of its weaker areas, especially when you consider the fact that at its current price point, there are phones that offer better camera performance. In low-light conditions, the images suffer from loss of detail and excessive sharpening. However, in bright daylight conditions, the Mi Max will surprise you with good colours and adequate sharpness across the board.
Happy with this mobile ☺
Awesome phone... Trully a Beast in this category.... Using since 3 months.... Had no issue at all.... Go for it guyss.... U wont regret...
Very good phone
Just like redmi note 3 bada bhai, love multimedia experience on it.
It is so good everything is max its screen size is superb please buy this phone only
Good product with prompt delivery. Only problem with the device is that there are no screen guards available in the market to fit the size. All available screen guards cannot cover the 2D glass curve at the corner.
Very nice phone..
Now when do you write such a heading? Well, when you have used a plethora of devices of that specific brand and when you know it's unbeatable. XIAOMI - My 1st phone was Redmi 1S, 2nd Redmi 2 Prime, 3rd was Mi4i and current is the one I am reviewing about.. With each devices I used Xiaomi has always surprised me a little more than I expected.. It's actually normal in India, to always have a bad feeling associated with any Chinese Branded product. But gradually it's being scaled down day by day. For me it's XIAOMI alone which holds the credit. Coming to the phone itself.. The New Big.. Mi Max The magical transcendence from a 5 inch to a 6.44 inch was totally unbelievable for me. Someone who was accustomed to a screen of mere 5-inches for more than a year getting used to a 6.44 display. It sounds unbelievable because it is so. The IPS LCD Display is a visual treat to look at. It invites you to look at it even your thoughts enclose you within. The 0.23mm thin bezels, the eye popping Accurate colours, the FHD resolution, Retina Grade 326 ppi. All of them ensures your gradual love towards it. Even the body seems no burden at all to hold. You only know you are holding it only when you have the 1 hour period passed. I laid it off 2 times within a 3-hr movie. Aluminium crafting blown away my mind. Gold variant looks vivaciously premium. Premiumer than Note 3. The 2.5D curved display plays the most significant role here. The glass perfectly blends in the metal. Giving a full unibody build to it. Being an avid net surfer, my wi-fi was always on till the device died on its battery, and what an endurer, it handled all the browsing and FHD video playback for 19 hrs like a champ. The 4850Mah Li-Polymer battery thus proves itself a high density one here. Tested Quick Charge support myself using VOXLINK QC3.0 and got a full charge from 12 in 1Hr 49Mins. Was totally amazed to see that since having early thoughts of no Quick Charge support. (Neither is it mentioned officially, maybe a Surprise, who knows?) Camera(16 MP PDAF) is improved a lot from the Redmi Note 3. Both of them are just miles apart. 2-3s in macro focusing during video recording while in an instant during snapping pics. Detail are seen more than anything, and in a respectable quantity. Color reproduction is highly customizable from lowest to highest. Front camera is noise free till ample lighting is present such as a dining room or even bedroom. Speakers are well balanced for the price. You can hear them distinctly in a crowded place like an Airport. While still loving the bass in a closed room. Yeah you get it right, bass is noticeable even through speakers. Earphones sound are optimizable as per your liking with Xiaomi's own in-ear sound enhancer. Mi earphones are most recommended here. The IR blaster's addition is even sweeter, and it works perfectly 60 degrees wide angle transmitter. Fun to use. Mi Remote ensures it's accuracy to level best. The MIUI is even more optimized for the screen. With a narrow status bar plenty of area is spared to work on. One handed mode magically converts Mi Max into a 4.7 incher Redmi 1S or even a smaller 3.5 incher Iphone 3G. The efficiency is excellent . SD650 and an ample 3GB of RAM keeps satisfied both of the day to day taskers and hardcore gamers alike. I am actually little of both. No sign or trace of heating. Rather the back feels cool if left untouched for 10s. The last and the most segment (atleast for me).. the fulfillment for a VFM product. For that I will make my description short. It actually gives more value than it charges you for. Better value than G4 Plus (and I'm sure about it). The device I bought and returned in just 3 days of usage. Any questions regarding product will be answered at top priority. They are welcomed in the comments section :)
