This is the most genuine & accurate review and i appreciate the reviewer for honest review.I am an owner of note 5 as well as mi max and i fully agree with what has been written in review.It is the best phone in the range & has great performance,the best battery performace ( my main criteria),a great display ( i like in better than amoled for not giving me oversaturation,caliberation is really great & i find sunlight legibility great and on par with my galaxy note 5),MIUI ( i love it for providing so much customisations and is very fluid,I like such good skins which are on par with native android skin, chinese rom is much better with additional functions and i love it),great performance without being a comprimise on battery( it outperformed my note 5 in Antutu scoring 84105,in single core geekbench 4 scoring 1449,Close to it on multicore scoring 3419,better vellamo metal score with similar broswer score & a little less multicore score as compared to my note 5 so i woud say its very fast),good camera but not best( low light prformance not on par with my note 5 but who takespictures in dark thats a question otherwise camera takes great pictures in good light in day with very accurate colour and details,beter than oversaturated pic by my note 5,but u need to adjust contast and sharpness to low level to get best pics),supports fast charging and volte,audio quality is better than my note 5 so very good and the best part is its not heavy on ur pocket.get it if it fits in criteria.
I moved from my Note 4 samsung and I am very much satisfied with this phone. Battery back is one day and little bit more on very heavy use. SOT is 7 to 8 hours. Games and video looks good.
All applicaiton doing good without notice of small processor as compare to earlier device.
I recommend to those who is looking for big screen and big battery without compromising perfomance.
Cons - Camera quality is not very good but acceptable for rare user.
No head phones and battery charging will take 3 to 4 hours.
Bought from Souq .com - KSA= feel like value for money :)

AnonD-639535, 29 Jan 2017check huawei honor note 8, better screen from samsung, much better soc, better gpu, and it ha... moreHonor 8 costs twice as much money & display isn't all that better it's also an IPS & certainly not from Samsung, the GPU is nominally better (T880 MP4 @ 900 MHz) bat throttle much more in real extended usage so at the end you actually don't get better performance at all. CPU is a bit faster (2.3GHz vs 1.8GHz), it employs faster NAND and camera is certainly better but it also comes with a much worser battery life. Not to bad for around 400$ but still not so stellar when compared with Mi Max Prime (3/64GB) that costs only 208$.
AnonD-638369, 27 Jan 2017Should i buy Mi Max or Redmi Note 3 ? Please advice. Thankscheck huawei honor note 8, better screen from samsung, much better soc, better gpu, and it has sony camera with ois.,voice wake up. Best batary
for people who wants to buy mimax, best phone for money. I used this phone for work internet, fast, good connection. Very well screen. Batery fantastic. But camera is avarage. Espiacially if no optical image stab. It is very bad. My nokia n8 get better pictures. And for generally if ur any phone has no ois it crab, don't matter how good iest options, even digital is not good enouf.
I've bought Mi Max 3gb/32gb with MIUI Version MIUI GLOBAL 7.3 | STABLE 126.96.36.199.0 (MBCCNDC). I tried to update to MIUI 8 by download the zip file from MIUI and failed to update via MiFlas. I even tried to update via updater from the device but it mention "couldn't verify update package". Any solution to update to MIUI 8? Thanks
soham saha, 28 Jan 2017Did it is compatible for gaming... Or I should move to redmi note 4 - 4GB version... Plss anyo... moreIt's a very good choice for gaming thanks to its large display along with its big battery backup. Adreno A510 is capable for playing all the games that are currently present on Google play store & most of the games are better optimised for it than MALI GPU's. Played; HIT, Gangsters 4, Xenowerk, Real Racing 3, Asfalt Extreme, Lone Wolf, Pirate's... They all work good.
Did it is compatible for gaming... Or I should move to redmi note 4 - 4GB version... Plss anyone suggest me quickly...
Killllssss, 27 Jan 2017I have problems with Mi max. It had been about 1 month i am using it and somehow lines starte... more3 options:
1) Contact manufacturer & ask them to take it in for repair.
2) Contact retailer & see if they'll swap it out for refund/replacement.
3) Take the screen off being careful not to break it or the digitizer underneath (or get a local repair shop to do it). Disconnect the ribbon, then re-attach it. If that doesn't work & you can't send it back under the warranty. Then check ebay, aliexpress etc for a replacement screen with digitizer & swap it over.
If that doesn't work, then it could be the motherboard, cpu, gpu that's got a problem. In which case, better to bin it & buy a replacement.
I have problems with Mi max. It had been about 1 month i am using it and somehow lines started appearing in on my screen. What is the solution to this?
