Anonymous, 24 Dec 2017After updated MIUI 9, this phone should has better performance than Mi Max 2, provided camera ... moreGood day. I am inquiring about the statements you made above. I wonder if you own both Mi Maxes (I and 2) , updated to the latest firmware, in order to validate your comment that "Mi Max should be" better than Mi Max 2. People always assume that having a higher grade of processor i.e Qualcomm SnapDragon 650/652 (in Mi Max) is superior. But if you consider the other facts, longevity, RAM management and power consumption efficiency, just to name a few) it might not be so. I am no tech-junkie here, so I can't provide the specifics. Just like to say that Mi Max 2 is a comparable upgrade against its predecessor, even if the perceived 'downgrade' of processor to Qualcomm SnapDragon 625.
Think about it, it makes no sense for a company to launch the second generation of a phone that received favourable reviews with a 'inferior' processor unless they want to kill themselves off the commercial market! They could've put in the same processor, but they have reasons not to! Then again, I don't own one Mi Max. You're free to counter-argue mine if you have enough substantial evidence to do so.

I would like to ask why QC 3.0 takes a 20 minutes longer charge time compared to QC 2.0? Also, does it apply to the next gen Mi Max 2? I'm using Mi Max 2 4GB/128GB with MIUI Global 9.0 I 22.214.171.124(NDDMIEI) version. I know my bundle has the QC 3.0 included but I don't use it often as I feel my charging phone gets heated considerably. Hence, I am charging using the (normal?) charger that my previous Samsung N7000 had. Still gets warm, but tolerable. Any idea if it's safe to do so?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

After updated MIUI 9, this phone should has better performance than Mi Max 2, provided camera is a bit inferior, and speaker performance. Otherwise, this one should be faster than Mi Max 2. With Qualcomm 3.0 fast charge support, then 4G+ support (tested with 4G+ network). All you need for a cheap and big screen phone, with big battery to match (true full day heavy usage). The phone also is very slim. This is all you want with a phone without a good night shot camera in a quarter price of high end phone.
SD, 17 Dec 2017Hi bro how much time does your phone need to charge mine is taking about 6h since last few day... moreQC 3.0 takes about 2 hours 30 minutes, QC 2.0 charging takes around 2 hours 10 minutes. Normal charger takes around 3 hours. All these are checked with MIUI 9, tested with the same OEM cable (Pineng), with different charger (OEM too).
Do check with other charger and cable. Cable itself can be a cause of slow charging too, where the cable maybe damaged in long time usage. The proper way to judge the slow charging is using a voltage/amp charging meter to measure the voltage and amp used for charging through particular charger and cable. Normally, the cable is the culprit of slow charging.

i gt 6-7 hrs SoT (around 20% battery left), playing video game nonstop(mobile legend, ultimate tennis etc)..
Jdjd, 10 Dec 2017Can you tell me your SOTI not yet properly measure the SOT. But judging from my usage pattern, FB, chatting, web browsing, Youtube, heavy usage lasted more than 1 days without issue (left around 30% around 10pm).
In a more typical way, the battery life just behave like MIUI 8, with 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth (with Android Wear connect) turn on all day. The more common feel is, I never need to charge in single day usage, even on the heaviest usage, including gaming. I'm using QC 3.0 charger.
After updated to MIUI 9, everything feel extremely fast. Almost everything is optimised. The UI, fluidness, speed, all are much faster than before. Quick charging now has much proper indicator, can view it on lock screen. Split screen works as expected, integrated into the multitask Windows. Multitask Windows now not showing the RAM being used and left, however the RAM usage has been optimised. Battery life is extremely good as before. Camera bugs is fixed, where much less refocus after the camera lock on a focus point. Home screen icon is polished, home screen icon and text size is shrinked a bit, look neater. All in all, great updates from Xiaomi. This is definitely the most anticipated update you have been waiting for. It is still Android 7.0 though, not 7.1 or 8.0.
Now MIUI 9 for Mi Max/Prime Global version is official.
Go to Updater to update or direct download the zip file from official MIUI website.
