Love Phone, 10 Mar 2017.... SUCK .... Camera Suck .... Big Phone But UsedlessImpressive phone!!!Xiaomi is really an amazing company with superb products!
zadran, 26 Dec 2016I bought mix 6GB from china local market and using in Saudi Arabia. it is an awsome phone but ... morehi bro, I am from KSA and wondering how to buy the international version. can you tell me where and how to buy? drop me the link for it. and kindly confirm if this is the international version, do it support Arabic & English Language in keyboard and phone language?
thanks in advance
Own and been using this phone for a while now and here are my thoughts.
Usability - Fantastic
Every time i use this phone, i love it even more. The things that seem to "annoy" most people like small bars either side while watching videos really dont matter to me as you have more video space... and i use an ultrawide monitor for my computer, which probably has something to do with it. its fast and has more ram than you will probably need for a while. Once you get google play on there (easy to do, many guides) its just the same as most android phones but so many options in the settings for tweaks and inbuilt themes (plus downloadable free ones) makes the phone really personal without having custom launchers etc that might utalise more resources than you want.
Battery - Fantastic
I dont know what they have done software/hardware wise, but its impeccable. I had the Galaxy Note 4 - a 3220mah battery and its a hige improvement. yes, i know 4400 is a bigger number than 3220 but the note 4 would last me 3/4 a day at most. Ive gone into day 3 MANY times with the Mi MIX and its only going to get better when 7.0 Nougat arrives im sure.
Screen - Fantastic
Honestly, Its so vibrant you could probably convince me it was AMOLED if it wasnt next to one and the size is a pleasure to use. A lot of people also are a bit hurt by the 1080p screen but... its a smart move, 1440p screen doesnt make much of a difference when youre talking phone size (unless youre looking to do cardboard VR). Sitting this next to my girlfriends s7 edge you honestly cant tell the difference in ppi and not having to push that many pixels probably is a big part of what helps the battery last so long.
Camera - Acceptable
My girlfriend has the s7 edge and you can tell the difference, especially in low light. the cameras not a potato but its not top-tier.
Storage - Very Good
I can kind of get why people are asking for Micro-SD expansion. although i got the 256 model... it would have just been a nice inclusion to have the dual sim tray be a SD hybrid as seen on other phone. sometimes its just more convenient to have removable storage.
Call Quality - Good
The call quality is a little on the quieter side with less clarity but very acceptable.
Connection/Data/Calls - Very Good
As it supports all of the common bands in the UK, dropping in a SIM and choosing the preferred connection type in the SIM menu is all you need to do. i also have a top-up sim for the US on AT&T and that was just as simple... just got back from using this phone on that SIM in the US for a week.
Im just a little concerned that Xiaomi dont seem to have replacement parts easily accessible for this. i havent dropped it yet but, its not going to survive very well with all that screen and i want to know (or even pre-buy) a new part like the screen or ceramic housing is available.
Hope this helps someone!
Would i recommend?... Absolutely!! I havent loved a phone this much since my Google G1 (God that thing was way ahead of its time!)
Collin, 20 Feb 2017I would totally buy another Mi Mix if they made the screen alittle wider, to make it a 16:9 as... moreI totally agree with you! The Mi Mix's black bars that appear while viewing content is annoying. They should also add SD card expansion, not that it doesn't already have enough space.
Has anyone used the Mi Mix in the US? Or downloaded Google Play store on it? Does it run smoothly or glitchy with google play installed?
zadran, 26 Dec 2016I bought mix 6GB from china local market and using in Saudi Arabia. it is an awsome phone but ... moreI have been using mi Mix here in India for about 2 months now... Initially I also had network problems... Like not registered to network, call drop, not reachable, switched off etc because of the shifting between 4G to 3G etc....
This is how I overcame this particular problem... I use 2 SIMs.. one exclusively for data which is network fixed to work only in 4G and the other SIM exclusively for voice calls and network fixed to work in 2G only.
For fixing network in the dual SIM SLOTS dial*#*#4636#*#* and change the network option to LTE only and gsm only in SIM 1 & SIM 2.
Only hiccup is... This has to be done after every reboot...!!!
I have not had any network issues after following this. *#*#....... Technique...
oki, 05 Mar 2017So no memory card expanson then?why u' need an sd if u' already have 128 or 256gb?
Y, 17 Feb 2017Iphone 7 plus is only 5'5 compared to Mi Mix 6'4. So what are you talking about?He was talking about overall phone size! iPhone has a smaller screen because of big top and bottom bezels! Size is almost same!
Is this available now in the Philippines? Hope it will, very soon and it affordable price.. Killer of all phones. nice!!
Maiooya, 18 Feb 2017Mi mix or mate9? Which is the best? mate 9 for sure. it has far better camera, almost same battery life, better quality. if screen is your only concern, buy mix
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2017hopefully mi mix 2 will have sdcard slot.if the Mi Mix have an sd card slot that supports 256gb, this phone will definitely be the killer of all mobile phones.....
LeonStano, 23 Feb 2017WTF... 128gb or 256gb _ sdcard for what?Maybe his phone use hardisk 1tb western digital...
Thank you Xiaomi for making a few companies realize how a smartphone should be done.
