Don't bother pixel peeping the photos from the camera. It's the usual noise-reduced, over-sharpened garbage as from most other phones.
Xiaomi should have included at least either a 3.5 mm jack or option of expandble memory
If Samsung can do it plus without the notch, why not xiaomi.
Even if the cost increased a bit, its worth having
Why doesn't any company remove the selfie camera altogether and put a small screen in the back of the phone? They can even use face unlock this way. Besides, the quality of the selfies will be much better. Water resistance is also possible. Problem solved.
Okay, wether you like it or not, this phone is a copycat
Front from OPPO
Back from Apple
The first MiX was genuine, I don't now what happened since then
Like Xiaomi CAN'T come with an original design
Compared to the other current released phones the mix 3 feels heavy! Disappointed with the claim by Xiaomi that this will be the first phone with 5 G, but where is it?? Sometime next year? Other manufacturers will come out with 5 G too, next year. And you have to buy the limited edition to get 5 G. No in screen finger print is disappointing as well. The best thing about the phone is the low price on the 6G model.
Domestoboto, 26 Oct 2018No replacement for displacement. Xiaomi put a 4000 mah battery on the Pocophone (25% large... moreWhat you're forgetting is that the Mi Max 3 is near 7". I bet you'd complain that Huawei didn't stuff a 6500 mAh battery in their Mate 20X? Pocophone F1 does not have to accommodate wireless charging and a slider system. So the space could be used for a battery. I mean, this response is failing to consider the factors in the decision.

Xiaomi put a 4000 mah battery on the Pocophone (25% larger), and a 5500 mah one on the Mi Max 3 (72% larger).
This having a 3200 mah battery is simply pathetic given you can buy two Pocophones with a larger battery for one of these.

Some manufacturers may come up with optimizations or even innovations from hardware and/or software perspective. But this Mix 3 pushes all phone designers to rethink what they could've and should've designed this year. It sets the bar high, and paved the way to full screen phones come 2019.

The slider adds weight and reduces battery capacity and you still have to use a back fingerprint scanner. Might as well do a water drop phone.
Another meh camera setup from Xiaomi.... So much for a flagship model.
Man the comments here are for real trash.
Battery complaints? Bottom chin complaints? IP rating complaints (even though it means water resistant, not waterproof AND is only rated for fresh water, not salt water, and other types of elements). I think it is cool. I am worried about the slider, but I had pocket PCs. This would be nothing for me.
It's official. Some folk want a phone that doesn't exist. I still prefer Vivo's solution due to the inclusion of a headphone jack and a slightly larger battery. But this is the epitome of doing the most with the least.
finally i saw 3200mah . good job Xiaomi , you seem like 2nd Sony phone.
don't worry , Xiaomi like to sell Redmi instead of Xiaomi . i really dont understand those cheap phone can pair with 4000mah , 5500mah but not the flagship phone.
Fintoyu, 25 Oct 2018Can anyone tell me why this phone still has A THICK CHIN after making a very STUPID, FRAGILE ... moreDude, calm the frog down! The display has to be connected somehow, and not having that tiny bezel would mean a thicker panel to accommodate for a curved screen. Also you would be paying more for that.
As for the camera, don't complain it's aesthetically a good design, also it gives that "Apple" look, and then when you flip it open, everybody flips the funk out, and probably would compliment the phone for not having notch etc.
Nobody mentioned about the quality of the night mode? Its brighter but something is not right with the photos.....
bettlejuice, 25 Oct 2018can you come up with much better design than this?? Lolmaybe you are talking about curved design samsung fan boy. curved are sensitive when it drops who want to pay a lot of dollars to replace a screen.
Slightly larger battery and an under display fp sensor would make this great.
The one thing i'm super disappointed on is they didn't add a MI logo on the edge of the sliding part, would be perfect tie in to their older designs! Instead of lame "dual camera"
Such a small battery in this phone. Almost no differences comparing it to the Mi Mix 2S, which is much cheaper. Not worth buying Mi Mix 3.
