Mi Max is launched with Android 6.0, so that option is available from begin.
Before that, on Android 5.0 of MIUI, the phone by default auto enable the MTP mode (Media Device), which allows file transfer by default if connect USB to computer (when click into the phone icon in computer, you can see the storage icon of the phone, appear like an U-Disk function)
Of course, only work on Window 7/8/10 (Window XP got issue with these).
Guys if anyone has the same problem just delete proxy and port in apn settings.

LS Tech geek, 07 Oct 2017I got mine 7 months ago. Still the best tool I ever owned considering I moved from Huawei P8 w... moreMi Max 2 actually upgrade on every aspect, except maybe the less powerful processor, which cause frame drop in gaming.
Otherwise, it has better screen, better speaker, better camera, type C connector, got Quick Charger 3.0 included in the box, all metal body, bigger battery, more power saving processor, much longer battery life.
I use 350 security app to keep the Max performing optimally all the time and well secured. Tried it and I promise you won't regret it.
I got mine 7 months ago. Still the best tool I ever owned considering I moved from Huawei P8 which had a terrible battery. This thing is fast at every user aspect. For the camera I got HD camera app and pics improved drastically. The battery continues to outlast any of my firends devices. Not sure if the new Mi Max 2 can be better than the original. Those who've got it let me know.
As many people are reporting having charging problem, mine has no charging issue.
Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 works as expected with any compatible QC charger. I got 3 units myself, 1 traveler charger with QC3.0, 1 traveler charger with QC2.0, and 1 car charger with QC3.0, all add up just around $5 dollar per charger, so much cheaper than other quick charger from other brand (OPPO VOOC, Oneplus Dash Charge, then the overprice Huawei Super Charger), and Qualcomm QC charger are so much easier and common to be found, regardless of charger brand.
On original Android 6.0, quick charge is not notified detected by the phone when QC charger is plugged,but it indeed do perform quick charge. After Android 7.0 updates, the QC charger is notified with a white circle around the thunder symbol indicating Quick Charger detected.
The phone itself is very smooth, Wi-Fi, 4G, calling, using apps and play games, all are very smooth and fast, no issue here. Whenever feeling lag or slow, it is mostly the apps issue itself, particularly Facebook app is the culprit. The camera also affect the lag when I want to view the recently captured picture. Then, a bit lag when viewing content on Micro SD card, but this is expected as I store many picture in the Micro SD card, which take times to load. Otherwise, it is always smooth and fast, apps launching is in milliseconds speed, you must lock those chatting apps to prevent the MIUI close the apps when not use in long time to get instant incoming message and notification. The camera is very good per it's asking price, very good on day light, only become bad on low light. Front camera captured satisfied picture by turning off beautification function.
All in all, this is one of the best extra big screen phone out there, with big battery, adequate processor, beautiful screen, and slim profile. It can be used as mini tablet, with cellular internet and voice call. A true all in one phablet with very affordable price to match. It is not super high end, won't outperform those high end, but affordable and reliable.
1 year and 3 months - still kicking ass. Maybe you always left your mi max charge overnight? I usually do charge them on powerbank pineng, which has auto shut off when already full charge.
1 year & 3 months. Battery swells till the lcd is being pop up. Scary.
At starting it do well but after sometimes its battery come draining faster and not quick charge, please help what i do
