such a small capacity of battery is not enough. screen to body ratio 180% also needs a 100% more battery, 8000mAh
Where is Captain?
To say this phone is not overpriced, but just with 5% profits.
Mix series is never meant to do massive business. Rather it always paved and guided others including big players like Apple, Samsung, Huawei etc to follow their innovation. Just remember what Mi Mix 1 phone was. Some people never believed under display earpiece. Now many brands are using it. Crazy screen to body ratio was achieved by them back in 2016. Now after 3 years all brands are pushing it. So this phone is the pioneer of innovation and soon will be followed by others. Once the technology is widely available, price of devices will also go down for the general consumers. Xiaomi deserves a big thanks from all of us for this extra-ordinary service. Though I am an Apple user, I love what they are doing.
Interesting concept but I imagine it being impractical to use considering edge screens are bad enough, though I'll keep an eye out for how fragile it is and how people get on using it.
The phone does look amazing, but the price is insane. If I could afford a phone like that, I'd probably get a foldable one, like the Mate X, which has a similar design, but can be unfolded, so it's a lot more useful.

A lot of people said the same about the original Mi Mix being to pricey btw, which also was a high priced device at it's time for Xiaomi. It sold like hotcakes and many switched out their iphones and galaxies. Essentially it was the phone that sat Xiaomi on the map in large parts of the western world.
I never had iphone as it never really offered what I want, but by father switched from iphone to Xiaomi, as did my little brother who sports the same Mi Mix 3 as me (and used to be a apple fanboy as well) and they're not the only ones.

Will be absolutely expensi... moreRich people needs toys too you know :-)
We don't actually know how difficult if would be to repair. Usually the thing that makes OLED panels tricky to repair is price and you pretty much have to disassemble the whole phone starting from the back. I think that the disassembly here would be to remove the screen from the test in the first few steps.
Anyways, this is definitely a type of phone worthy of insurance.
I like new tech - though this one seems useless. The phone is an overexpensive yota phone without the eink. And with that the death of the mix line. I want to see it in rl though - but would never buy into this. Lets hope there will be a mix 4 some day. Right now it's no more xiaomi for me.

Xiaomi is doing what big companies should be doing
Ap... moreIt can't unwrap, have you been paying attention?
There are multiple dual screen devices already, I don't think this provides more in terms of functionality compared to a simple screen at the back. It seems just for looks and bragging rights.
Wow! This actually has me extremely interested, unlike Galaxy Fold. The phone looks beautiful, can be used just like any other phone (just having glass doesn't mean it'll suddenly shatter on the slightest fall), and is certainly going to make people notice.
Even the price, damn, never thought I'd say this (I'm not one to spend more that $500 on a phone), feels worthy. And this isn't even remotely something I thought when I saw Galaxy Fold. >.>

Apple is the worst company at this moment in terms of innovation
A toy for the rich. Will barely sell more than a thousand units.
Will be absolutely expensive/nigh impossible to repair.
Oh, it will look great as a decoration!
Flossy420, 24 Sep 2019Why do you people think this phone is meant for everyone to buy? Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi ar... moreYour point of view startles me.
Who is paying for this innovation? Exactly, the people that buy their phones - at the lower end of the price range. People who cannot or don't want to afford this questionable concept phone.
The phone looks really nice. I am not sure what is the practical usage of the back and side surfaces, but it catches the eye. At this price point they won't sell even their sample units, but this could pave the road for such design devices when more durable and cheaper materials are available.
And people who pay 2500 euros for mobile phones don't throw them on the ground. At least I've never dropped my phones for more than 20 years of usage.

I assume the price is for the mixture of new specs, new camera module, the innovative screen and damage prevention tech.
Xiaomi do seem to love Apple, just look at the new Huami watches emulating the Apple watches so maybe this is them attempting to enter that market segment...
