QandA, 04 Jan 2017u need some patch for that , no need root, search googleYou don't need a "patch" for camera, you need root access to enable Hal so that Camera 2 api culd work & fird part apps with it (like Open Camera). With it things get better but still far from ideal. Without root I guess you can try with Bacon Camera that is based on Snapdragon Camera (still the best app regarding original Camera API with it it focuses & shots rather fast in pitch black environment producing rather good output, other than that it's nothing special.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2017Yes,it hurts very much.Which kind of LED they have used in it.Earlier I was using super amoled... moreThey used pretty much the same back lit Leds as anyone else including Amoleds & all do Amoleds are capable going even lower the display on Max is actually capable of going pretty lo on back lights for an LCD.
Regarding eyes fatigue even it has a biger display that allows you to use it comfortably from a 35 cm distance which helps along with night mode it's still far from ideal. Unfortunately (in this case) a battery backup is rather huge so it doesn't help when it comes to exaggerating with usage which leads to more fatigue. I had an eye hurt only once but that day I had 12h of SOT, pinning refresh rate of the media (video) to the refresh rate of the panel will also help a little (I use it with Kodi).
Eleni, 02 Jan 2017You can definitely buy this phone, but be sure you buy one with the official global rom, not... moreHow to check the phone come with international rom..especially when u purchase online?

My mi max getting heat in normal usage with the latest software update MIUI 126.96.36.199
Does any one here experienced Dizziness after using Mi Max, or pain in the eye, or some irritation? The display is Very Good, but after a few minutes of used, I feel dizzy.
I tried all the contrast settings but its all the same.
ALI, 04 Jan 2017camera quality is not good..u need some patch for that , no need root, search google
I bought Mi Max from Guangzhou, it all ok except Google play services. I can't install / download any app, Google Play Service isn't available. It's giving me headache.
I am using my phone 32/3 GB, global ROM for 1 week now:
-design: the phone is nicely designed, colleagues at work are asking me what is this phone, it is slim, and elegant.
-Display: very nice display, good viewing angles, good color render, amazing for watching videos, playing games and reading books (there is reading more very handy and useful in the dark before sleep, I like it very comfy).
-Sound: is loud, Good but not great as it lacks the pure and deep quality of sound (I bought it by 200 USD, so I can not complain)
- Battery life: very good battery life, I used the phone intensively (gaming, video, chatting, whats app, Skype...etc) in on day and still 14% remaining before sleep
-RAM management: is very good, always 1.4 GB of RAM are free after installing all my apps. if I opened 2 games, video, music player, whatsApp, skype, reader, Ytube, .. about 15 apps in the background, the RAM is still arround 500MB and more. never noticed lag or crash.
- storage : you get 25 GB free out of the box right ahead after starting the phone for the first time and finishing setup. I has the advantage of using the SD card as internal memory.
-Processor: snapdragon 650, in my mind is the best of processors I used it gives me processing power comparable to SD 801 and I can say SD810 without the heating issue. actually with asphalt 8 and Real racing 3 no heating at all, just felt warm near the camera area but no discomfort at all.
- finger print scanner: is fast and reliable but not the fastest (Huawei is the best when it comes to finger print scanners).
-Camera: it is OK, getting the job done but should take some care while shooting, if your hands are shaky or did not wait for the focus, the picture will be blurry especially in low or artificial light. colors are generally good. but I should tell that the pictures of the ASUS Zenfone 2 (32/4GB) and the Lenovo Vibe shot (32/3 GB) are better in photo quality.
- MIUI: It is really useful and inspiring UI, having capability and smartness of iOS, [up to 80% or more, but this alone is great, considering the price :-)]
-Conclusion: it is good phone all around, really more elegant than the redmi note series deserve every Penny I paid for.
I will ad another review after few months regarding the aging of the phone
Peace from Abu Dhabi
To everyone the dearest,GSMArena,all brands,and especially this smartphone itself.Just the happiest new year with the best wishes.Hopefully this Max child quality is superior to its parents Xiaomi Mi Max 2 and hopefully its name!!!Justice Rights is people's rights.Omid12Omivar,....
abcde2017, 30 Dec 2016Anybody know if the 4GB version is available as an international/global version? If not, what ... moreTo be honest 3gb/64gb and 4gb/128gb there is international rom. Go to mui official forum and download and flash it. I am using 3/gb/64gb china but flash to international rom. I had been using for 3 months. No issue at all.
According to me,mi max is better than p9 lite and redmi note 4.it is worth its price.i dont regret buying this phone.
ZolaIII, 02 Jan 2017Yes it required a 20 seconds to search for it.
http://www.honorbuy.com/786-xiaomi-mi-max-128... moreYeah, I checked that website out before, whilst it is 4GB Ram & 128GB Rom & shipped from the EU (which I hope avoids custom taxes) it still isn't an international/global version.
I'm reluctant to buy a non-international version as I don't want to turn it on & see everything in chinese & risk every app being in chinese or youtube not working because it thinks I am in China or whatever.
The cheapest I found was £240 but I think that is shipped from China or Hong Kong.
