You can pm me on XDA to try to resolve that. Me by its a partition corruption which is solvable but rather complicated.
I had a awful experience with this phone, and I couldn't recommend buying it. I have one for two months now, and two weeks ago it reboots itself and remains stuck on Mi logo for hours. Then, I hold the power button to turn off and since then it didn't boot again, only flashing a Mi logo and turning off.
Researching the forums, I've tried millions of methods to unbrick it, all unsuccessful. All the ROMs I flash using official Mi software don't work at all, and the same using Qualcomm tools. Since yesterday, it even turns screen on or vibrate when I use hardware keys combinated. I'm personally tech savy, with understanding of electronics (including hardware), and tried to flash a new ROM using test point (opening the device and provoking a short between two circuit points), and, even receiving positive messages from flashing tool, still don't turn on.
On the forums, (specially MIUI and XDA), many people relates the same problems. My conclusion: a bad quality ROM chip. I bought mine from AliExpress, and the seller keeps sending automated responses to my emails. XiaoMi global services don't read my emails and answers with suggested procedures that I can't take (once I can't even turn on device).
Few customers related good experiences with device, but many more related problems concerning MIUI and/or hardware failures. I never use it as a phone, more like a tablet (browse internet, read magazines and books and occasionally playing games), so, camera quality or signal reception was not an issue. Now, I'm looking for a new phablet, choosing between Zenfone 3 Ultra (excellent, but very expensive) or Huawei Honor Note 8 (less expensive, but I don't know much about build quality).
very good n powerful phone... battery life is excellent 👍... both sd 650 n 652 are good processor.. with adrena 510...can play any game

C7 pro with AMOLED display is superior to the Max's LCD, but its larger 6.45" is a delight to watch movies and games! Take your pick.
I'm confused between Mi Max prime and C7 pro. I play games occasionally, heavy use of net , and calls. Mi max come with internal call recording does C7 pro has that facility?? Also whose camera and processors are better??
I shall be really thankful to you guys if you can help clear my confusion..
I just bought Xiaomi mi max a week ago after reading its review in this website.
the price in Indonesia is IDR 3.3Mio.
overall i love this phone.
it's size really comfort for watching and gaming.
i dont need to worry on overheating. even i run much apllication, i can't feel overheat on back case such us low-budget phone did.
the battery is great, i only need to recharge once a day (if i used fully online).
But just curious about the screen. is it really Gorilla screen? well in my 3rd day i made a lil starch on the screen. I suppose it won't be happen on gorilla's screen, am i right?
I have been using this 8 months, so far soo good. Battery and performance still good. Using 32gb/3gb ram with 128sd card. Value for money abd by the way camera is good in good lightning.
Charles, 11 May 2017l live in South Africa, how can l ship this phone from China, anyone with any suggestion, beca... moreHey Charles. Xiaomi phones are available in SA on contracts (through Vodacom) and for cash from a host of portals. Visit the official Xiaomi site in SA https://mia.africa.com/za/ to see where exactly you can get the phones, or buy it from them directly from there website.
Importing phones into SA carries customs & excise and tax etc, when you factor in those cost's & the long delay to get the phone to SA, you end up not paying much more buying the phone in SA.
The Mi Max 3gb/32gb is R4700 at Makro & Xiaomi's official site, but its R4399 at Takealot. Also, there is a "Mi Phones site" (www.miphones.co.za/) that sells all the models, but there cost's are similar to what it would cost to bring it into SA yourself except that they've been doing it for a while.
Im buying the 3gb/32gb from Takealot myself, don't want to take chances on importing it, not worth the hassle. If I like it, i'll upgrade to the 4gb/128gb one.
wTag, 13 May 2017I want to know from those who have the phone for a long period if the battery performance - an... moreThe average SOT is around 8~10h currently on mine Mi Max 3\32 after seven plus months of use on last stable global ROM (18.104.22.168). Also now with new better quality cable than a stock one it charges a little faster it takes around 3h to fully recharge with stock charger which is 10~30 min better results.
It's more dependent on the firmware updates than anything else, at the beginning with the MiUI 7 whose about the same like today, with 22.214.171.124. whose best 10~12h & with 126.96.36.199 whose worst 6~8h. Phone whose always working fast.

I've bought Xiaomi phones here and works great. Only downside is delivery time of 2 to 4 weeks. Also make sure you buy one with official international ROM
I want to know from those who have the phone for a long period if the battery performance - and phone performance generally- is still good without any drains.
Thank you for your help
ASD, 12 May 2017Hi guys i want to buy this phone but can someone tell me does it have heating issues because i... moreNever crosses 40°C on external back upper right shell (where SoC is) & it rarely throttle down in extensive extreme use, the Prime models are a little more prone to it when all big core's are used. It's far from uncomfortable to hold & use. Most of the time in normal use it will stay under 35° C (so under your body temperature). I did had a problem holding it out door's this winter for longer as it becomes uncomfortable cold.
