bettlejuice, 25 Oct 2018can you come up with much better design than this?? LolYes, i can do. Without any obsolete slider or pop-up camera, wihout useless chin, only main back camera, all sensors moved on the back and a 2nd monitor display on the back just for the stupid people making boring selfies with the main camera.
A nearly perfect phone, yet a fatal mistake.
The battery capacity is a joke, they should rather scrap a cemera, or bothe the selfie cams.
Its unacceptable to have such a ridiculously small battery...
Awesome looking phone Xiaomi, love the STB ratio. I'm kind of a troll so the selfie cam being hidden is a win-win for me. 10G ram is superb especially with the SD845. And the Samsung AMOLED display is top marks.
Why are you guys all crying about the battery being relatively small when it comes with a wireless quick charge and a separate super charger available?
I have never used a Xiaomi device so I can't say if the android overlay is 'heavy' or not but I'm sure this phone will be a great phone and more than likely priced right.
Stop comparing everything to that piece of shit Mate 20 pro! It's already old news.
Can anyone tell me why this phone still has A THICK CHIN after making a very STUPID, FRAGILE AND OBSOLETE SLIDING MECHANISM ?????????? And why must all copy the back and the camera form and position of IPHONE X ??
Whackcar, 25 Oct 2018"So, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is one of a kind, Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Oppo and all the others hav... moreI agree about honor device, it was also teased recently.
I would even count oppo find X as it is still very much alike. Shall we call it a semislider?
Ha more Chinese BS. No in screen finger print sensor, no 100% screen to body ratio, no 5G, no IP waterproof rating, no sd card slot, no 4,000mah battery, no 3.5mm jack. This is worth no more than $300 USD for no US warranty or support.
I hope the screen will survive long
Past experience told me that display ribbon cable is fragile, and slider phone usually rip the ribbon after some amount of sliding in and out
But unlike the past, where screen is cheap to replace, now a screen can cost over 1/3 of the phone price, so yeah it's a concern
"So, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is one of a kind, Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Oppo and all the others have nothing quite like this."
That's just a incorrect statement. Honor Magic 2 & Lenovo Z5 Pro are just about to launch, so there will be at least 3 phones with this kind of slider design. Hopefully they'll have bigger batteries too.
(The Oppo Find X doesn't count, cause it's not really a slider)
I'm still not brave enough to get phone with moving parts, had ones in the past and it wasn't an overall happy experience.
Yet it's nice to see that xiaomi solved most of the problems right away with the case. Also, it's nice to see the company offering premium treatment for their customers by including the wireless charger.
Also, a notchless chin device is something that will make a lot of thumbs thank the designer.
All in all, this one may not be for a lot of people, but it's definitely a design (hardware and marketing) that other makers should learn from.
Sean, 25 Oct 2018Don't like this new trend towards moving parts. I remember slider phones well and they were al... moreThe mechanics is fine, but dirt sand and other staff the normally goes to the mechanics kills them quickly enough!
So if you never carry this phone in pocket and don't use it outdoors, it will last just fine :)
Unreasonably high selfie camera resolution, just 12mp main camera. No headphone jack. Small battery. Looks like one to avoid.
Yeah it looks cool, but it doesn't have a headphone jack or micro SD card support so I would never buy it no matter how good it looks. It's like someone who's beautiful on the outside but has an ugly personality on the inside. It doesn't matter how good they look I'd never want them as a partner
