been using samsung, don't like xiaomi in the past because of MIUI. Quite surprise with xiaomi max, the interface is user-friendly like samsung. Used 2 hours, the battery only drop 10%. The camera may not be like samsung...but the price...performance..size is enough for gaming,watching video...And don't worry about the size, it can still be store in your pocket. the weight is not heavy too.

Long I have ignored comment on GSMArena where many slam Xiaomi phone.
I am glad I bought this phone and ignore those comment.
This is the first time I bought Xiaomi phone.
Coming from using Samsung Note 3, and Note 4, this phone take it to another level.
First, I really thought Xiaomi phone is of low quality (after reading those comment) like Samsung, where thing start to spoil, UI start slow down and self restart after a few months of usage, this phone has none of that, still so stable after 4 month of usage.
I know, it doesn't has AMOLED screen, battery none removable, no NFC, no so called 2K screen like Note 4, but I'm very satisfied with it's quality and performance. It doesn't overheat like the Samsung. My Note 3 is Snapdragon 800 variant and Note 4 is of Exynos 5433 variant, both get overheat badly, performance really not satisfied, UI slowed down and phone lag and hang frequently, even just opening Facebook, Whatapps, Wechat and Chrome browser.
I know people will recommend flash with custom rom, sorry, I'm just a normal user, don't want to risk my phone for doing that, even though it is claim to be simple to flash custom rom. I am fully happy with this Mi Max MIUI 8, simply is the best Android UI out there, minimalist sleek UI with real almost zero bloatware.
So, go for this phone, it is a true performer.
Always a notification showing female for english (united kingdom) waiting for WiFi. How to remove it? Can anyone help?

I wish to buy this phone . But I noticed one thing the display resolution of i phone or OPPO etc are much nice then mi.
Kindly clear about display resolution..
First of all Thanks to Snapdeal and Citi for giving me a dream offer. I bought this BEAST for 12K quick delivery.
Pls read further if u love Monster Display
Coming to the review part: first thing will impress you is the display WOW. OMG
Good Hardware with customized software. Pre loaded app's are just formality. Amazon kindle APP is worth.
MONSTER Battery which will easily last for 36 hrs from 100% battery. i am a person more into social media, videos and games at least for 8 hrs in a day that is why i am confident. Charger - will disappoint you as it takes more than 3hrs to charge 100% from 2%.
No need of temper glass, curved edges is too good. but my suggestion is to use a flip cover to safeguard. since it very sleek and slippery. flip cover is recommended.
Body design:Awesome. People say MI is china APPLE it is true when you carry it in your hand.
SIM Tray: Hybrid one if you are a dual sim user u cant expand it more than 32GB. if you are single SIM user use 64GB dont go beyond since it is lagging. but there are other ways to use 2 sims and memory card also, watch you tube how to enable it freaky stuff.
Dual Accounts: You have options to use dual What's app, facebook,hangout, twitter and many more accounts.
FINGER PRINT : Very Very Very quick. u can use to click photos also
Music :Use sony headest
Coming to CAMERA - MI is gone back in time when it comes to camera, sometime i wonder Front camera is just VGA stuff. Back camera is OK in outdoor dont ask me in indoor. Very poor dont know why it is soooo bad. i believe it should be software issue and MI developers should look at it. if it is hardware OMG live with it. Hope something is done from MI.
why i am so specific on camera is? having a monster in your hand and everybody ask you take photos both front and back and you will be in embarrassing situation with the results of the pic.
If you dont have selfie disease and rarely use camera this is dream phablet for you go for it. if you are freak about camera sorry you have to wait.
Conclusion: HD Display 5/5 Hardware 4/5, Software 4/5,Battery 5/5, UI 4/5, Camera 2/5 Design 5/5.Sim Tray 3/5 for dual sim. single sim 5/5. Value for money 4/5 (Camera ???)
At last for 6.44 inches HD screen and 4850 MAH battery it is completely worth to buy for 15K you will not regret.
If you have any doubts pls ask will revert to you. Thanks Sridhar
