My Xiaomi Mi Max 32 GB that I bought 2 years ago always had shortcomings and problems. My phone always stops responding I repair this model at the repair centre 6 times and then, I have problems. You should not buy this model. It's Xiaomi's fault.

Please let me know, which country you are in. I m from Pakistan. If you are from a different country, then I have to wait a little more. Also, confirm that you have first generation of Mi Max phone not Mi Max 2. Thanks very much.
Imti, 28 Oct 2018MIUI 10 updates were not sent by the mid of October. Mimax may not get it. Any update on this? Did you check manually? I already have MIUI 10 running on my Mi Max, got it on Friday after a manual check for updates :-)
I didn't get any notification, so I went into settings and surely an update was available. Exactly which date it was made available I don't know.

AnonM, 13 Oct 2018You are implying these damage and defect will happen to all Android smartphone, almost all has... moreNo offence.
I'm not blaming anything. And if you must know, I didn't do anything to damage it. One morning, I was playing a game. And suddenly, it froze. I couldn't do anything. Buttons were not working. So, I forcedly turned off and turned it back on. When it's back, buttons were dead.
Some mobiles are not like that. They have separated those two. When those buttons are damaged, it's the human nature that you don't want to replace the whole thing. If you heard that you'd have to replace the whole thing, you feel angry especially the replacement price is high. That is my condition. And also I'm just telling the conditions of this one here. If someone like me wants to buy this one and when it's damaged like this and feel regret for buying, they can avoid because of my review. That's my intention. I'm not attacking Xiaomi or whatsoever. Thank you for your reply. :)

I don't know how you damage it, but it is not a common issue. Capacitive touch screen button are actually very durable, and also more sensitive than physical button. Yes, if damaged, need to get the screen replaced, almost every smartphone made from these years are like that, you seemingly just blame this is a kind of design issue, when broken, you need to replace the touchscreen.
Recently got the battery replaced by Xiaomi. It cost $21 which is fairly cheap.
Imti, 16 Sep 2018When will I be receiving the system update announced... I mean MIUI 10 global (STABLE)
Mid October this year.
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.

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
The American-Indian, 23 Jun 2018Hi-I'm looking to replace my Galaxy S5-It's a NY Sprint single sim- the screen went out and I'... moreI would say the soon to be launched Mi Max 3 is the best among the 2, more powerful than Mi Max 1 and Mi Max 2.
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.
