elf11, 29 Oct 2018let's start by saying I am a big Xiaomi fan and also coming from original Mi Max.
Here are my... moredid, you buy global version or modified Chinese version?
did you add anything by yourself to the phone to alter the original?
not really heard anyone complain like this. But its getting updates and will be upgraded to pie. could also be a defective device you bought.
let's start by saying I am a big Xiaomi fan and also coming from original Mi Max.
Here are my thoughts:
1.The display quality Sucks even when compared with the original Mi Max which wasn't perfect! it is red tinted(even when the color temperature set to cool) and OH MY GOD what are these diagonal line which you can see if concentrate enough on display from a close distance?!! What is this Xiaomi? really disappointed! I read several reviews and tons of comments and nobody pointed this out!!! common people! I wonder why GSMArena didn't included the microscopic shot of the display...
2. the speakers Although they are somehow stereo(not sure though) there is not a notable improvement so don't expect that! and if you are coming from a Mi Max 2, you would be very disappointed!
3.the camera is improved well both front and rear ones.
4.battery life is very good as expected.
5.overall performance is smooth as expected.
6.built quality is better than the original Mi Max but I think Mi Max 2 was better specially where the screen is jointed to the body it was all smooth and flat but in Mi Max 3 like original Mi Max it has a bump there which is not nice at all.
[deleted post]do you have blue or red colour for global versions that will be released in future?
[deleted post]If Mi Max3 is launching in India on October 30th then why there is no promotions/teasers/advertisements ? I hope this is true. Bcuz waiting for long three months is tiresome.
I think Xiaomi is in no mood to launch Mi Max3 India bcuz more than three months passed since its China launch and Global launch in few countries but there is no sign or indications it will be launched in India. If this is true then this is a very bad move by Xiaomi which had earlier launched its predecessors Mi Max and Mi Max2 which were popular in India. Does anyone has any ideas or update regarding its launch in India ? If Xiaomi is reading this comment then I kindly request them to launch Mi Max3 in India soon. If they delay/cancel then the only option left is to buy other available phones from other brands. I hope they will not disappoint us.

Snapdragon, 27 Oct 2018To be honest you are just been very unfair to compare honor note 10 to mi max3. Firstly, they ... moreI was fair, i say price was higher and then i compare mm3 vs 8x max and ended saying both are great phones, so dont understand u (y)
But now u start compare the mm3 and note 10 and trust me mm3 not even get clise to note 10 in most specs, speed, camera etc. Ofc i know 8x max is usb 2, i have it my self, but it still i great phone because of this, this dont affect the phone because of usb2 , so dont understand u at all.
I have 2 phones because i can, very simple
Best phone so far for me. Nice screen and very looooong battery life. Miles better than my company-issued note 9

Firstly, they are not even in the same price group. you bought a fake ROM because you were not patient to wait for global version so that is your own fault not the Xiaomi company. that also is not a problem that has to do with MI MAX 3. those using both versions have confirmed the phones to be good. lastly hope you know the honor 8x max is a usb 2.0 and single wifi band and it is not up to par with mi max 3. i wonder why you have both phones.....btw mi max 3 will get pie by year end not sure about huawei. mi max 3 is big value for money. the phone will do everything your note 10 will do i guarantee you.
I had mi max 3 for a short time, i got my money back cause of a fake rom. But really a nice phone indeed.
Then i bought Honor note 10 and Honor 8X max instead, note 10 is clearly the best of them (no doubt) and with a lot higher price for sure.
But for no. 2 i have honor 8X max and its even more cheap then the mi max 3, amazing phones for small money, I'll never buy a top range phone again for sure.
Pupone, 21 Oct 2018Almost 1.6...which is high. And it's the single blocking point for me. This phone looks a gre... morewell that is why you have a 3.5mm headphone jack on this phone!!!!i'm sure if you use it whenever you have loong talks, you'll be fine.for short talks, you will also be fine.
Snapdragon, 25 Oct 2018sounds like you are so obsessed over this SAR value. Each country set their own value. what is... moreWell, "obsessed" is a tough word....Let's say I am concerned.
I agree with you that there are plenty of things potentially harmful in the world we are living...we can't avoid it, except living in the middle of Greenland out of everything.
But my view is that you can have an impact on limiting the exposure to what is a potential danger for health. It is the same with everything (food, drink, etc...). My way of thinking is that you can reduce the risk: a little amont of many things will be, in total, far from a huge amount of many things.
Then it's up to each one of us to decide what to do.
For sure I don't say that people who buy it are unconsicous, I never judge people.
But as I care about the size of the screen, I care the same about the SAR value...
And maybe in the end, I will buy this phone....but at the moment, this high SAR value is blocking me!
IntheMix121, 24 Oct 2018... I have it installed and my phone is fine - running flawlessly.in mi max 3 global or chinese phone?
Pupone, 24 Oct 2018I've read your long post and I would like to thank you for describing the phone so accurately!... moresounds like you are so obsessed over this SAR value. Each country set their own value. what is good in Uk is not good in your area. i know here in USA, 1.6 is the point to reach and I think UK is 2.0 but stand to be corrected. anything above you are advised to be careful. So check your country to see what you have as good value. am buying it in November cyber Monday. nothing is stopping me . there are other things putting radioactive waves everywhere. from hospitals to your homes. unless u want to live life without technology. there is little you can do . welcome to the new world. I don't believe a lot of the testing by some companies. some are not even sure just doing it to make people feel better

I've been bein interested in this phone for a while, and I am convinced that it is a great phone, with an amazing value for money.
However, as I already wrote before, the only blocking point for me is: the SAR value. It is so high (almost 1.6) that for an intense use I would always keep in mind that it might (I precise "might" because you will righly tell me that no evidence have been shown) be unhealthy...
I would really like to have an opinion from someone who bought this phone: did you take this high SAR value into consideration, or you just don't care or didn't pay attention?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Firstly, let me just say that this is the first 'Phablet' style phone I've owned ... therefore I don't have another phablet phone experience to compare it too directly. However, I've owned an iPhone 6s Plus and a Galaxy Note in the past, although neither quite a phablet and both with somewhat older technology in those units.
So, my impressions of the Max 3 ... it's big, really big. And I've got to say that, despite it's size, it feels great in the hand and isn't clunky or awkward to get a decent grip on. I've not got overly large hands for a tall man, yet the fingerprint sensor is within easy reach with my index finger. The buttons are in the right, usual places on the side and the power button can also be assigned to take screenshots via a double-tap in the settings.
I live in the UK and bought my Max via eGlobal UK ... They sent me the 'Global' version, so I didn't have to waste any time faffing about with removing various apps aimed at the Chinese market. I secured the phone at budget-friendly £200 and the most important thing I have to express to everyone reading this post is that the phone's performance far from budget level performance ! The phone is fast, very fast in real-world everyday tasks. I did a side-by-side comparison against an iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy s8+. I checked how quickly the Max 3 opened YouTube, Facebook, Whatsapp, Chrome, Firefox, Instagram and in all case the Max opened them way ahead of the other two phones. On average, the Max opened all in around or just under one second, with the other two taking between 2 to 5 seconds. Granted the phones compared against, aren't the very latest flagship models from either Apple or Samsung ( the iPhone X and Samsung S9 holding those titles currently ), but it wasn't very long ago that the models used here were at the top of their respective branded trees. I also accept that a couple of seconds difference when opening apps is hardly a matter for consternation, but the fact that the Max is so quick in this regard does add to the overall perception of a very smooth, spritely and sleek device.
I have the 64gb version with 4gb of memory and, baring in mind that the Max has a mid-range Snapdragon 636 beating away at the heart of it, I am quite literally amazed at how swift it is with the types of everyday tasks I use my phones for ... It just does everything without any fuss and does it promptly in the way you want and hope for.
The picture quality is surprisingly good, easily matching anything I've seen from a Samsung Galaxy 8 and the phone takes excellent 4K video if you download 'Open Camera' from Playstore and use that over the stock camera on the unit. To be fair, I don't do a huge amount of filiming or picture-taking with my phones, so I don't go too deeply into the more professional-orientated capabilities of the stated phone. I'm more interested in the point-and-shoot standard results that most everyday users would want from a phone and in this sense, I'm very happy with the results I get without too much effort.
I've been using the Max 3 for a few weeks now and I can honestly say, it is not just a great phablet, but one of the best phones I've ever used, full stop ! For the ludicrisly cheap price of £200, you'll have a phone that can in many ways better a lot of top models from some very well known manufacturers overly the last 14 months. Ok, it won't beat an iPhone X or a Samsung S9 in certain areas, but you are paying but a quarter of the price for the Max 3 that you'd pay out for those leading models. I would defy anybody to use the Max 3 for a period and not come back with a generally glowing report about it !
My advice : go and treat yourself to a Max 3 and save enough money to pay pretty much outright for decent holiday !!
