Anonymous, 12 Nov 2018Is true, when i first purchased the Max 3 out of the sealed and wrapped box.
You know what,... moreThats true, i also purchase Note 5 with seled box, and when i opened, near back camera, there is a spot, damage, on alu,metal near camera(s).
Also there is a case (on youtube, unboxing). Redmi 5a, seled box, but no adapter in the box at all heh.. Xiaomi needs to improve little their quality, in those basic stuff. On the other hand, they have cheap phones, good phones, also MIUI 9 (and 10) is not bad for custom rom (better than EMUI).
I was looking for a smartphone with long battery.
Big screen came as a bonus for me, as I'm using it for work.
- battery, all day use for work - 1 day, sporadically use - 4+ days
- charging time - to 80% in about 1-1.5hours
- big screen, I can edit documents easy
- productivity: for my work use, and sporadically youtube, it's excellent.
- IR that I can use with my TVs
- When you hold it horizontally and one hand cover the top (where is the front camera and I suppose WIFi antenna) WiFi signal drops significantly.
- big screen, it's 2 hands gadget. It has one hand feature witch can be helpful... someway..
- better in many aspects than a similar budget and even more expensive Samsung.
- it doesn't fit very well in my pocket when I'm driving for example.
Long battery life, excellent productivity for my work use and big screen.
Hey guys. To those who owned the Mi Max 2 before this....
Hows the battery life on this compared to the Max 2??
Any changes in cellular reception compared to the Max 2?
And any downsides compared to Max 2?

The phone looses the advanced Bluetooth settings every fckn' time after turning the bluetooth off and waiting approximately 5 minutes. I don't understand what the hack is with Xiaomi, but I'm not satisfied at all. :(

Hey, everyone! I managed to repair myself the product. I didn't find any useful help on the internet, so tried new things. First of all: Reinstalling didn't resolve the problem.
Anyone, who can connect the car audio system, but sound not working, should try this:
1. Go to settings.
2. Under the "System and phone" menu hit the "more settings" button.
3. Then go to the "developer settings".
4. On the Bluetooth sound codec choose menu set the "block optional codecs" button, and it'll work immediately. (I hope.)
UPDATE: I also found the battery statistics menu. It's a bit hidden...

You know what, the power adapter was faulty, I proceeded to mi make a exchanged of the adapter, so do not expect new set out of the box will always be good, it depends on your luck too.

Just read this bit: https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_mi_max_3-review-1809p3.php
I had an LG M320N (X Power2) before with a 4500mah battery, but with less energy consuming parts and I had quite a bit more battery life.
