I have gone through various camera phone's but I found that Lenovo's pictures are much better than xiaomi. So it is better to buy Lenovo instead of xiaomi.
5300mah for that big screen? Please buy Lenovo P2 if you want battery. It jas 5100mah same 625 processor and bonus is super AMOLED screen.
AI2017, 06 Aug 2017Not interested in Xiaomi anymore with its lousy parts and plasticky screen. My next phone wo... moreWhere do you get the plasticy screen from? Having owned 4 Xiaomis their screens punch well above their price range.
I bought this off e bay for bargain £260 from UK based seller and am pleased with way it works as per specifications...why pay more for a phone I say
mi max 2 is worth for its price. will buy this after getting the review about battery performance.
Kangal, 06 Aug 2017True. Back in 2015, if you compared two processors that had an identical total processing p... moreMi max2 has much better speakers,better build,larger battery,better camera and also screen is better...so dont say that mi max is better:) i had all models of first mi max..even 128/4GB and now i have mi max2 black..its much better phone.
Hi I have had this phone for about two months
And I love it,
The the camera is about 8 out of 10 just use it in
It cost me from mi shop $300 Australia dollars
If you buy this phone you will love it to
Best money I have spent in a long time
And the battery life is outstanding
xXENDER FREAKXx, 06 Aug 2017Why does XIAOMI downgrade the chipset from SNAPDRAGON 650 to SNAPDRAGON 625 AGAIN? They done i... moreTrue.
Back in 2015, if you compared two processors that had an identical total processing power, I would've told you the processor with the less threads would be more efficient.
Example: (win) 28nm Quadcore Cortex A17 vs
(lose) 28nm Octacore Cortex A7
(lose) 28nm Quadcore Cortex A57 and Quadcore A53
Example2: (win) 20nm Dualcore A72--Dualcore A53 vs
(lose) 20nm Octacore A53
(lose) 20nm Quadcore A72-Dualcore fast-A53-Dualcore slow-A53
However, the LATEST Cortex A53 cores are much more refined than the OLD Cortex A53 cores. They can clock much higher and maintain that clockspeed. And their IPC seems to have been boosted to the levels of Qualcomm's old Krait-400. So the latest Octacore Cortex A53's on the latest 14-10nm nodes on a hardware level are much more powerful than the old Quadcore Cortex A53's on the old 28nm node.
And on top of that, Android has become much more efficient in 2017 as compared to 2015 when utilising the extra cores and threads. So what it amounts to, is that the QSD 625 is much closer to the QSD 650 in performance than what it used to be. If we had the QSD 650 chipset back in 2015, it would've been seen as the successor to the QSD 805 and the QSD 625 would be a weak performer. Now? They aren't equal, but much closer than before.
This is why the QSD 820 was PERFECT. It arrived in a period where big.LITTLE and many threads weren't very optimised in Android nor in Apps. So it didn't waste efficiency there. Thanks to many tweaks in 2016-2017 AOSP project by Google (thanks Pixel), the QSD 821 chips perform well.... and now the QuadA72*-QuadA53* chips in the QSD 835 perform better than planned, though there's still a lot more to do in terms of optimisation.
So yes, the Mi Max is better than the Max2 in that it is lighter, smaller, faster, etc.
The only upgrade they've done is to switch out the OmniVision OV16880 camera to a Sony IMX386.
The bump in battery capacity from the already huge 4,900mAh to 5,300mAh isn't much of an upgrade. But if you like to call it so, feel free.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2017You get what you paid for. I have bought many Xiaomi stuff and none of them disappointed me. ... moreyou have forgotten one thing, the camera. Xiaomi midranges phones normally have bad camera (lower than average). I have used many Xiaomi phones and other midranges phones's camera are just better.
You get what you paid for. I have bought many Xiaomi stuff and none of them disappointed me. Quality is a bit on the down side, so you have to read a lot of reviews before buying one. The only thing that makes me to turn away from Xiaomi phone is MIUI and its potential privacy issue. Even some phones can be flashed with LineageOS, I would not send sensitive stuff with Xiaomi, read the disclaimer when you setup the phone, you will be surprised how much information will be sent out.
Great! Now I'll never have to remember my age!!! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm out to burn my now useless birth certificate. Farewell!
Why does XIAOMI downgrade the chipset from SNAPDRAGON 650 to SNAPDRAGON 625 AGAIN? They done it to the NOTE 3 & NOTE 4. Why? I know SNAPDRAGON 625 boasts great battery life, but SNAPDRAGON 650 have better performance and just a minor drop in battery life. So in the end is downgrading worth it?
