Hey, No Snapdragon 710 as previously stated
I go and buy Asus Zenfone Pro Max now.
gaben, 19 Jul 2018Interesting logic. But hey, something seriously wrong with Lenovo too: they were able to put o... moreThat is what I'm saying. If you think about it. The only part that would limit a user is the battery. It is also the only part that degrades the more charging cycles it gets.
So smaller battery => more charge's => more charging cycle's => faster degradation of battery. And with the usage of fast charging it puts even more stress in the battery. So the consumer is forced to buy a new phones around 24months.
(On some OEMs even sooner due to the battery quality.)
And most OEM's don't even offer to buy the original OEM battery as replacement. If you are lucky and life in China its no issue. But try getting one in the Western Hemisphere.
You can order OEMs batterys through China. Believe me I tried. They we're OEM batterys and even with CE logo. Not fake but customs wouldn't let it pass. Due to a law that's prohibits the import of batterys which are not enclosed in a device.
Hey guess what? Who and when that law came up? Exactly just shortly after the OEMs started producing Phones without battery swapping. Smart move I call. Limit the consumer even further. It's all done for profit.
While in some African country's you still see people running around with indestructible Nokia phones like the 3210.
normal size phone?, 19 Jul 2018redmi 3 is 139.3 x 69.6 x 8.5 mm with 4100mAh battery and 5.0 inch screen. Why not keep body s... moreIf it's too big for you then what are you doing here? Clearly Mi Max line of smartphones is not meant for you. Just look or wait for Redmi standard-sized device you'd be happy with and stop whining.
leledumbo, 19 Jul 2018Lenovo P2 dimensions is only slightly smaller from all sides, it lived in the 16:9 era, while ... moreYou have no idea what you are talking about. If what you say would be applied it means the battery in the Max3 could have gotten even bigger! Because if I hold my P2 right on top of my Xiaomi Note 5 AI/Dual the Note 5 is actually bigger!
And guess what the Note 5 IS SMALLER than the Max 3.
So how does your logic apply now?
The Max 3 should have been able to at least accompany an 6500mah battery. P2 is smaller in size an still packs an 5100mah! It has nothing to do with screen estate!
For power users who are in a tight budget, the Max series is a go.
redmi 3 is 139.3 x 69.6 x 8.5 mm with 4100mAh battery and 5.0 inch screen. Why not keep body size same and just to increase screen size and have smaller bezels? For me, Redmi 3 is better than Mi Max 3, just because I dont have big hands and pockets. Really, why not normal size phone? Dont talk to me, that 6,9 inch screen phone is same body size like 5 incs phone before. Its ridiculos.
Comoon, be realistic, if you marketing BIG PHONE, then make a poster where woman is carrying phone with trolley or something. But here is picture where woman puts this big phone into pocket. Really??? How BIG is that woman to have so big pockets? Hahaha!

Remember that 5.5" and 6.9" you mention talks about the screen, not the whole body. Use a 3D editor to build a box of size 23.2 x 11.4 x 0.3 mm, now think what battery size can fit there?
Kiyasuriin, 19 Jul 2018Her hand is beautiful though. I wish I had such beautiful fingers ;-;Haha Very funny
TheWanderer, 19 Jul 2018So you're a girl? InterestingI'm not a girl and I want nice skin like that :D I think I need more photoshop in my diet.
Kiyasuriin, 19 Jul 2018Her hand is beautiful though. I wish I had such beautiful fingers ;-;It's almost certainly photoshopped to look so nice. :D
And the Mi Max 3 looks great, although the upcoming Honor Note 10 seems more interesting, since it's supposed to have a similar sized huge screen but better specs. But the price will probably be huge too.

Not much of an update from Mi Max 2. Xiaomi always makes Mi Max similar to the Redmi Note with similar internal specs. Such a large phone, but could not have space for a dedicated micro sd card slot (uses hybrid slot) and camera could have been much better with better F-ratio.
for those who's asking where's is the sd710 variant, xiaomi will have an another event later, hope it's max 3 pro.
No surprise today. This is going to be a hard decision if Mi Max 3 or MI 8. I like the SD 636 endurance, size of the screen, infrared and jack but I am so afraid of poor sunlight contrast ratio like my redmi note 2 has, I can literally see nothing during the sunny day, so the phone is useless no matter what the other specification is, if the display is poor than nothing else matters. I am looking forward for review, also I am waiting for Mi 8 SE review, it can be a good choice as well
