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

 

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...

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: 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 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: The new big!

 

Claiming to be the first company to popularise the ‘phablets' concept in the Indian market (despite Samsung being the first to introduce it), Xiaomi set out on a journey to capture the untouched market segment by offering smartphones which almost blank...

While the Xiaomi Mi Max is one of the very few in its segment, the trend of smartphones with display sizes bigger than 6 inches and less than 7 inches is expected to rise in the next few months. Xiaomi seems to have hit the centre point between...

Xiaomi Mi Max: As Big As It Can Get

 

Any more and this phone with its 6.44 inch screen and a 4,850mAh battery, would be a tablet. But some want it large.

Lots of screen space, thin bezels, Great price, Fantastic battery life, Good performance, no heating, Light for its size

Disappointing camera, Every app doesn't fit
