This is easily the best value phone on the market right now. No other phone provider offers these specs and quality at this price. Blows the competition away. Amazing. I've had mine for 3 months and it's the best phone I've ever used. And I've used expensive phones.

Tsubassai, 06 Dec 2017Hello again Anonymous! I'm guessing you're living in Malaysia too?
To answer your queries:... moreHi Tsubassai,
Thank you for your reply and response,very appreciated,yes i leaving here too.
I understand some import sets are having these apps problems,because of the global Rom reformatted...etc,i guess.
So just want to ensure that the 128gb version get from DirectD is reliable.
I fully agree with you the 3 Bigs,BIG screen, BIG battery, BIG internal memory storage.
That's why i have decided to upgrade to Max 2,especially i needed a big storage one,my present 64GB Sam C9 Pro,is already out of space and not able to hold more dramas,i always prompted with insufficient storage,i do not like to use SD card,i feel it slows down the device,built-in storage is the more appropriate one at least for me.
As Samsung is already started mass production of 512GB storage,i wonder Xiaomi will give max 2 a boost of 256GB,but i doubt it will ever happen,as i understand Xiaomi wants to keep max 2 affordable for everyone,128 gb is already hard to find now,64gb is common everywhere.
Once again thank you for all your reply,appreciated.
Please do come back and post if you have any good or bad on Max 2,we were like to hear from you.

To answer your queries:
1) The box housing my Mi Max 2 Gold Edition was in mint condition. I'm not sure if there was a heat-sealed plastic wrap (I bought my Samsung Galaxy Note 1 in its box without any wrappings a long long time ago) The salesperson actually opened the void seal in my presence and let me use the phone with the protective stickers (front screen and rear-camera) still intact. But I guess that's pretty routine right? I meant to say if any dishonest salesperson wants to root the phone, he/she could have made sure the seal isn't "tampered" too obvious for us consumers to take notice.
2) As about the non-functioning apps pre-installed in my Mi Max 2, there's isn't any of such issues like you've described. The only 'big' glitch I've had so far is when using the MiBroswer app. It crashes on certain sites that produce pop-ups for confirmation (just twice).
Ultimately, I've followed the opinions on this site and the haters mostly moan about the 'perceived' downgrade of the SnapDragon 625 processor, lesser quality camera and video capabilities. I am pretty much content with my lot as the phone fulfills my basic needs: BIG screen, BIG battery, BIG internal memory storage with DUAL sim/micro-SD hybrid at AFFORDABLE price. Let's see if it meets your expectations too. Cheers!
-Mi Max 2, Gold Edition, 6 weeks' user-
use snap 636 is very important
Sony IMX230 Exmor RS with f/2.0 and Optical Stabilization (OIS) is very important
I use one in Canada. It's not compatible with lte here, it uses H+ for data.
I really like this phone. The large screen (unlike the newer phones like the Note8), is a lot wider than any other, making it much more useful for me. The battery life is outstanding. I use my phone for several hours a day, mostly reading books. No phone currently available with my carrier will last the day without a charge in mid afternoon in my experience. My note4 with an oversized battery case did the day, usually. This phone? It's late at night here, it's showing 62% still. Plus, it's a fast charger.
Data speeds are excellent for my needs, have no complaints there. The dual sim is excellent, I switch between my Canadian one and american frequently.
Huge, easy to read screen for even my old eyes, battery that lasts forever, and it's cheap. I'd buy it again.
Kawsar, 04 Dec 2017i am using this for 1 months. nice and handy...How is in call sound quality ?

Android821, 03 Dec 2017MIUI 8.5Hey Android821, may I ask what MIUI version are you using currently? Mine says 'MIUI Global 9.0 / Stable 220.127.116.11(NDDMIEI)'
You can check yours under "Settings -> About phone". Also at the same page, scroll down until you see an 'Update' button to click on. Then it should bring you to the MIUI update page. Please make sure you have a cellular data plan / WiFi activated before doing so!
Tsubassai, 25 Nov 2017Hi Anonymous, I'm currently based in Malaysia. I got my Mi Max 2 Gold Edition with MIUI 8.5.0.... moreMay i know your version is a brand new set,i.e the box fully wrapped and sealed before taken out.
Have you detected any pre-installed apps are not working,for example when you open the app it prompted you as "unable to open app,your device has been compromised and rooted" but you didn't root the device or "unathorised software was installed on your device" something like that,if yes could you please share which app.
I intend to get the original and full workable version,appreciate your answer above.
Android821, 03 Dec 2017So this is only up to MIUI 5? Do I actually need to manually flash MIUI 9?MIUI 8.5
