i have been using my mi max 1 for 15 months now, heavy gamer of mobile legend.
It seems like a great mobile but it's weakness is that the navigation buttons (back, home, menu keys) are attached with display which means, if one of those damaged, you'll have to replace the whole plate. The cost for it isn't that cheap. (I know this because I'm now facing this problem. All those three navigation buttons are damaged and I went to service centre and they told me that I'd have to replace display. The cost for it is not that cheap. So, I chose not to replace it and use the quick ball function instead of navigation buttons.) I only use this one for 2 years and now, it's damaged. So, I'm so sorry to say that I don't recommend to buy this mobile.
When will I be receiving the system update announced... I mean MIUI 10 global (STABLE)
Been using the phone for 2 years, no problem so far... And still performs better than the new smartphone that comes up in the market recently

Screen wise, I would say it is watchable on this price tag, but not very vibrant.
For the ppi thing, no need worry, at 6.4" up to 7 inch, full hd still offer very good density, despite on paper is lower than 2k screen, and other smaller full hd screen, but you still can't see single pixel. 6.4" full hd simply is outstanding for watching video.
Then, your BDRIPs that larger than 4GB won't be able to stored on micro sd as all Xiaomi phone only can read FAT32 formatted micro sd card.
For the dual band thing, no need worry, even the single band is more than enough. The limitation is on WiFi itself, even using 5Ghz WiFi AC at 433mbps or 866mbps, the high quality video streaming still will slow down and end up in buffering. WiFi simply is not suitable for high speed local network usage.
Other than that, Mi Max are quite a good device to go, if you appreciate it's big screen, suggest wait for Mi Max 3.
Ang, 29 May 2018Mediocre camera, hahaTo my very surprise, it only perform bad in low light photo, which even high end phone also struggle to get good picture.
So, in good light, it actually capture very good picture.
For low light, better turn on it's LED flash. Still, it's phone came out very noisy on low light.
Much of it I blame to the camera software where it fail on post-processing rather than the camera itself.
Otherwise, don't expect much from a smartphone camera, they won't even similar capable as the cheapest DSLR, smartphone camera are for social network quality, that's it.

I use it mainly for whatsapp-streaming movies-and the most usage for Googlemaps during driving. I would like a dual sim with good screen for my BDRIPs- the new superAmoled phones are just too much for me to justify spending.I've been comparing phones on here for several days-narrowed it down to 3. 1- Mi Max 1, 2- J7 NXT, 3- Remdi Note 5(not pro).I was content with choosing b/w them until I came accross your posts.I did look at the Mi Max2-so just a few questions the Max1 has SD650 Hexacore vs. SD625 Octa? 1080 x 1920 pixels, 16:9 ratio (~342 ppi density) vs. 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~403 ppi density), then there's the screen ratio thing-which one Does have the bigger viewing area? Is dual band in Max1 important? and then there's the BASEmark scores. Please if you could break this down for me or even provide a good alternative.Personaly I reallllly like the Zenfone3 Ultra but don't need that pricetag. Thank you for helping a NON smartphone guy.

On youtube I found that it "may be" due to overextending RAM. I think it's just bugs in software. 2 apps always for me are VLC and Banking app. MYJIO app also freezes up.
any one can tell me is this phone support fast charging or no ?!
Thank you for your answer.
Hi, good news, Mi Max will be updated to UI 10. Great ....
