Anonymous, 26 Aug 2018Honour note 10Not bang for the buck. The mi max is a much smarter option.
dvdivx, 26 Aug 2018This is why Xiaomi and Huawei are still second rate at best: LTE bands supported: Mi Max 3: ... moreBecause the north american market is not a priority. Their own chinese market is more important, as well as the markets of neighboring continents. They're taking it slow but strategically. The US can wait. It's not as big an economy as it likes to think.
This is why Xiaomi and Huawei are still second rate at best:
LTE bands supported:
Mi Max 3: 1,3,4,5,7,8,20,34,38,39,40,41
Now lets see what that supports based on Wikipedia and frequencycheck
North America 2,3,4,5,7,12,13,17,29,30,40,41,42,66,71 Sprint only (25,26)
South America 1,2,3,4,7,13,17,28,38,42
Middle East 1,3,7,20,28,38,40,42
Australia- NZ 1,3,5,7,28,40
Sadly not much now compared to other phones:
Apple iphone8 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,11,12,13,17,18,19,20,21,25,26,28,29,30,34,38,39,40,41,42,66
Samsung s9 (us model) 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,12,13,14,17,18,19,20,25,26,28,29,30,32,38,39,40,41,46,66,71
Asus ROG 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,12,13,17,18,19,20,28,29,32,34,38,39,40,41,46
Google Pixel 2 XL Global 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,12,13,17,20,25,26,28,29,30,32,38,40,41,66
It's almost like they just dont want to sell phones world wide. Better than the first one but still a long way to go.
I really like this device as a media consumption phone, good job xiaomi!
Been waiting for this for a long time, but now that Poco F1 is released out of the blue I'll get that one instead.
Good device, not as good as the Poco though.
LG Superfan, 26 Aug 20186.8" 16:9 = 7.3 18:9 if that is what you were asking I didnt quite get itPrefer 16:9, but don't get why 18:9 became mainstream.
Nicolas F, 25 Aug 2018"32sec" ? Didn't understood, could you please explain?)Its shutter speed the time the camera shutter stays open, its in manual or pro mode on most smartphones and cameras the longer the shutter stays open the brighter pictures you get for example set the shutter speed to 2 seconda and take a picture now take the exact same picture with 32 seconds and latter will result in brighter picture probably even overexposed because 32 seconds is along time and you will need a tripod cause with longer shutters even slightest of camera shake will ruin your entire picture
No Poco F1 and Honor Note 10 as competition both are kind of direct competitors Poco becaue of price and Note 10 because of display size and battery size
Great screen and amazing audio quality over 3.5mm jack. That's all I really wanted to know.
namla, 25 Aug 2018Side bezzels too much...Honor Note 10 has the same. I'm not sure smaller side bezels would be any good on a device of that size. You'd touch the screen accidentally a lot.
Plus remember that you have one BIG piece of glass on the front. The bigger the screen the easier it's to crack it by dropping or even a side bump. It's simple physics. You need solid bezels to disperse the shock effectively.
Walter C. Dornez, 25 Aug 2018Why did they not mention the Honor Note 10? It's a direct competitor!I though the same thing, because the Honor Note 10 is similar in screen size & battery.
Nicolas F, 25 Aug 2018I think it's just because of more pixels in display =)Well, it's only a slight bump from 1080 X 1920 to 1080 x 2160. No jump to QHD or the like.
For instance, the S8 Active has 1440 X 2960 display and only 4000 mAh, but manages a very similar endurance rating. https://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s8_active-8676.php
Plus battery was increased in the Max 3 too, hence I hoped so.
AnonD-632062, 25 Aug 2018Great smartphone. Awesome battery endurance, although I must say I expected something around 1... moreI wouldn't put too much stock on the reported battery life numbers. Apparently with MIUI it's a crapshoot which version you're on - one could be just fine, the next could drain your battery like crazy.
