joe nodden, 02 Oct 2019Bruh the phone is over 3 years old what do you expect? The battery wears over time. And a fact... moreYou can look it up for yourself if you'd like, Xiaomi have placed an artificial thermal limit on the soc so that at around 40*c the phone thermal throttles like crazy. If you want to use the phone while charging you will have to either use normal charging instead of fast or just give up on the idea entirely, unless you root the device and change the thermal limits yourself.
And i'm well aware that the battery wears down over time, i literally stated it in my previous comment. It was a battery champ and still does have decent battery life, but the point i was trying to make is that there are phones that are significantly better in many departments now a days that can be had for the same price or less. Everything starting from the screen to the universally agreed upon poor camera can be upgraded by at least two tiers with devices that cost the same or less.

The battery wears over time. And a factory reset would likely fix the overheating issue. Because something (or things) is probably running in the background stressing out the SoC.
When xiomi announced it i thought that it will compete with flagships like galaxy s7,s7 edge and the iphone 7 but when they launched it in November 2016 i was very disappointed it has a great design but when it come to camparison with flagships
Something was unfair
Tobi, 23 Jul 2019Totally worth it. Still one of the fastest phones ive usedNo I wouldn't say it's worth it anymore. While I've been using it since early 2017 and consider it to be one of the best smartphones I've ever used and owned, I believe there are much much more better offerings out right now, even at the mid range segment. The camera as many have stated isn't great and requires heavy editing to get anything out of the images. The battery life while not at all bad ( especially when the phone was brand new) is kind of mediocre nowadays, mostly suffering from quite high power draw from turning on the display . But what I think kills the phone imo is that it has some serious thermal throttling issues because of Xiaomi setting in a very low thermal threshold for who knows what reason. What this means is that as soon as you fire up anything intensive or anything that shoots up the thermals of the phone ( yes that includes fast charging) the performance of the phone will plummet, making it almost completely unusable until you allow it to cool down; so using the phone while it's charging is literally impossible. This can be fixed however with a simple edit of a system file, but that's basically the crux of the phone in that it suffers from alot of flaws which you yourself have to put in effort to fix/mitigate. Rooting this phone and applying custom ROMs makes the experience much more bearable, but I realise that not everyone is keen on doing that and I'd honestly think is just too much work for what should be a great experience out of the box for the price.
Jairus, 17 Jul 2019Is the mi mix still worth buying in 2019?? Need your opinion on this. Thanks :) i bought one this year and i think its worth it. much better than the my previous phone. i love the size of the memory. thats what i went for.
Jairus, 17 Jul 2019Is the mi mix still worth buying in 2019?? Need your opinion on this. Thanks :) No is not i had it for 1 year and changed it to LG G7.it's processor is not good in games like pubg heat up and lags
Tobi, 23 Jul 2019Totally worth it. Still one of the fastest phones ive usedIn my region, this phone is still expensive, even more expensive than Mi Mix 2. The Mi Mix 256 GB / 6 GB for new even more expensive than Mi Mix 2s 64 GB / 6 GB new.

Jairus, 17 Jul 2019Is the mi mix still worth buying in 2019?? Need your opinion on this. Thanks :) Not really, the camera was very poor quality, even at the time of release. Compared to modern phones it really shows its age. Speed is also quite lacking, even compared to mid-tier modern phones. The only things it still has going for it in 2019 are the notchless screen and battery life.

Anonymous, 26 Apr 2019I've had this phone for about 3 months now. I absolutely love this phone! I did a TON of resea... moreIn simple terms: Absolutely brilliant. Purchased it in Feb 2017 at about 580 US dollars, worth every dollar. Fantastic piece of machinery, software superb, came with Android 6 off the box, thanks to Xiaomi currently on Android 8 running MIUI 10 on top.
Call quality is good, forget the naysayers, battery life it's a beast, gaming is good. Camera quality is alright, with adequate lighting, dim or dark condition not that great, lots of noise.
I'd definitely recommend
I've had this phone for about 3 months now. I absolutely love this phone! I did a TON of research and reading reviews. And I was a little nervous but... the phone is definitely well worth it. I got the 6gig ram/256gig storage version. The 3-sides of "almost" no edge is just wicked cool to look at. I get, "Whoa! That's a cool looking phone!" all the time! The phone is zippy fast. Feels solid in the hand. And the screen is just the right height/width (6.4"). As opposed to those long and skinny phones that say 6.5" (looking at you Honor 8x!) but seem much smaller. One thing in the review I don't agree with is voice call quality. I think the voice quality is just fine. No problems at all. I can hear clearly, and they can hear me clearly. It's certainly not as low as the review said, that's for sure. Another thing I noticed the review didn't cover is the navigation buttons. These can be turned off completely and navigation can be done by "swipes" (from off-screen up is "home". From off-screen side is "back", off-screen up to middle and hold is "recent", off-screen left and hold is "last app", etc). This was never mentioned. And yet, it's an amazing feature. It adds "that" much more real estate to the screen. And getting used to it takes just minutes. I actually prefer it now to on-screen nav buttons. Another thing not mentioned- this phone has a built-in root system. So you can root the device and put in whatever ROM you want. I happened to stick with the Global MIUI , but the newest version (v10.2.xx) (on top of android 8). But still... the option exists (in developer options). Plenty of hidden gems in that MIUI! If you're not a "notch" screen type, and looking for a nice, big screen with no cut-outs definitely give this phone a second look! This phone looks amazing and performs just as well as it looks. For the price, you really can't go wrong! Love this phone! Very glad I bought it even though reviews weren't as positive as they should be! This phone deserves more credit than what it got!
I don't see why no company has made bezels as thin as the top and side bezels on this phone. They're essentially non-existent.
raj, 14 Dec 2018i am unable to upgrade the ROM. any suggestionsYes, do some research! If you can't upgrade it. Its because YOU are missing a step. This stuff may seem hard at first. But, if you get into it. It will not be long before you know it like the back of your hand. For now the issue is operator related.
