Frankie Tech posted a video on YouTube called "Honor Note 10 vs Xiaomi Mi Max 3 - Battery Drain Test!". Go check it out. The results show the honor note 10 VASTLY outlasting the mi max 3 despite its bigger battery. Conclusion? The mi max 3 has extremely poor software-hardware optimization. Skip this one guys, trust me. Not worth the cheap price in the long term. Add an extra couple of hundred bucks and get something that'll perform better in the long run. I'm personally done with xiaomi. There's a reason their phones are cheap.

I just got the Max 3, popped my sim card in and everything looked good- until i made my first phone calls. reception dropped from all bars to 1 , dropped call. Now i can only make calls when standing outside the house. inside any building there is no reception. Max1, Max 2 work perfectly. Also, there is a sound coming out of the bottom speaker( which sounds like a Crowcall), top speaker hardly anything, I wasted my money big- time. I hope this reception thing is only software related and can be remedied some day. I am using the global rom since i live in Canada. I did not have expected this from Xiaomi.

Go see the online tests and you will see that this phone has lasted up to 3 days.

Despite price being an issue, I just might have to stretch myself a bit more and go for the Note 10.
On actual problems: some people report screen occasionally registering touch out of nowhere, without user doing anything. Does anyone here encountered this issue?

Not only due to the fact that a lot the testing was with black bars or areas covering a large amount of the screen, but also that the Mi Max 3 has 50% more sub pixels to power, giving the display a lot more detail than the Note 10.
Both devices was also set to 100% brightness and one might be outputting more lumens at this setting than the other.
Better to wait for GSMarena reviews.
The person holding the Mi Max 3 on the pictures here got a huge hand, it made the Mi Max 3 appeared to be small

Comparable with Mi Max 2. As for Honor Note 10 battery comparison with Mi Max 3 battery, it's not clear which one is better. I've seen 2 videos comparing the two (by Frankie Tech and Techtablets) and the results were contradictory.
Please, post youtubers's names or links to some reviews that confirm what you say.

Guys, don't buy this phone. Several youtubers have been running battery drain tests and have found that this phone is extremely poorly optimized with its 5500 mah battery, it was being destroyed by phones like the honor note 10 with its 5000 mah battery, even phones with much smaller batteries like 4000 mah, and 3750 mah. This phone is trash guys.
Has anyone had a 6GB/128GB Black or Blue model ship from any Chinese or EU store yet? Today is supposed to be the day according to the 2 week wait message everyone recieved from Mi Global Store back on August 1st...

Compared to XZ2 premium this phone is lighter offers bigger screen and much better battery hahaha.
Good work Xiaomi.
Sony is really bunch of clowns.
