I'm confused between Mi Max prime and C7 pro. I play games occasionally, heavy use of net , and calls. Mi max come with internal call recording does C7 pro has that facility?? Also whose camera and processors are better??
I shall be really thankful to you guys if you can help clear my confusion..
I just bought Xiaomi mi max a week ago after reading its review in this website.
the price in Indonesia is IDR 3.3Mio.
overall i love this phone.
it's size really comfort for watching and gaming.
i dont need to worry on overheating. even i run much apllication, i can't feel overheat on back case such us low-budget phone did.
the battery is great, i only need to recharge once a day (if i used fully online).
But just curious about the screen. is it really Gorilla screen? well in my 3rd day i made a lil starch on the screen. I suppose it won't be happen on gorilla's screen, am i right?
I have been using this 8 months, so far soo good. Battery and performance still good. Using 32gb/3gb ram with 128sd card. Value for money abd by the way camera is good in good lightning.

Xiaomi phones are available in SA on contracts (through Vodacom) and for cash from a host of portals. Visit the official Xiaomi site in SA https://mia.africa.com/za/ to see where exactly you can get the phones, or buy it from them directly from there website.
Importing phones into SA carries customs & excise and tax etc, when you factor in those cost's & the long delay to get the phone to SA, you end up not paying much more buying the phone in SA.
The Mi Max 3gb/32gb is R4700 at Makro & Xiaomi's official site, but its R4399 at Takealot. Also, there is a "Mi Phones site" (www.miphones.co.za/) that sells all the models, but there cost's are similar to what it would cost to bring it into SA yourself except that they've been doing it for a while.
Im buying the 3gb/32gb from Takealot myself, don't want to take chances on importing it, not worth the hassle. If I like it, i'll upgrade to the 4gb/128gb one.

Also now with new better quality cable than a stock one it charges a little faster it takes around 3h to fully recharge with stock charger which is 10~30 min better results.
It's more dependent on the firmware updates than anything else, at the beginning with the MiUI 7 whose about the same like today, with 220.127.116.11. whose best 10~12h & with 18.104.22.168 whose worst 6~8h. Phone whose always working fast.

I've bought Xiaomi phones here and works great. Only downside is delivery time of 2 to 4 weeks. Also make sure you buy one with official international ROM
I want to know from those who have the phone for a long period if the battery performance - and phone performance generally- is still good without any drains.
Thank you for your help
ASD, 12 May 2017Hi guys i want to buy this phone but can someone tell me does it have heating issues because i... moreNever crosses 40°C on external back upper right shell (where SoC is) & it rarely throttle down in extensive extreme use, the Prime models are a little more prone to it when all big core's are used. It's far from uncomfortable to hold & use. Most of the time in normal use it will stay under 35° C (so under your body temperature). I did had a problem holding it out door's this winter for longer as it becomes uncomfortable cold.

No heating at all, you have to fry your eggs somewhere else!

Has anyone used stylus with mi max prime ? Which stylus works well for it ?
msr, 10 May 2017If I buy it now in india through mi official website, will it come with android nougat MIUI 8.... moreNope. Global stable (& every stable for that matter) is still based on Marshmallow currently MiUI 8.2.5, the beta's are based on Nugget & you flash them firstly manually & then you get OTA's for what ever you are on (until you root).
