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.
Wife and I have had the phones since December 2016. They still look and act brand new. Custom roms and modded camera software have turned this phone into a god of phones.
Hello, anyone experimented a freeze on Miui 10 after last update?Its a freeze on home wallpaper, all icons (call,message,camera,etc).With kill button (left key from Home) work to eliminated all apps running in background but when i come back to Home its still freeze.
Only with restart the Mi Mix work great again.This freeze is random, one freeze in 7days and i have my wife Mix2 and the same freeze after a few days...
Problem with Miui?Anyone?
...my Mi Mix (6/256) were 1 1/2 years old and the Mi Mix 2 (6/64) drop into deeeeeeep price, alomost the price more deeper than the price I bought Mi Mix, should I change the phone, my Mi Mix just suffer a drop and a glass break on the upper left about half cm, but everytime i look into it, its feel great at 6.44 inch display that no flagship want to do
AnonD-745972, 20 Mar 2018Hey guys, I'm looking to buy this phone. Should i get the 4gb or 6gb RAM variant? 4gb o... more4GB should be more than enough but it is always good to have a little more just in case. MIUI is optimized to conserve RAM but that also means it won't keep storing your apps in the background. Most users turn the ram saving features off so you'll probably want that extra 2GB because background apps add up.
makomau, 21 Apr 2018So, when will arrive Oreo on Mi Mix?be thankful if you aren't on oero yet. battery life always suffers after an android upgrade and oreo has lots of problems for Xiaomi to patch. i just hope they'll quit android as soon as possible. we need MIUI os not MIUI on android.
makomau, 22 May 2018Yap,still android nouga...beta no, i want stable version...by the way, how is your cpu's still... moreBe glad for that. Nougat's bugs were mostly mapped out by Xiaomi so it shouldn't affect you but Oreo is brand new and it will take some time before Xiaomi can figure out how to fix all of the problems.
heindrix, 22 May 2018well i never use MIUI lol. i always use custom rom, one thing MIUI win (on my opinion and my ... moreYour loss. MIUI is miles and miles ahead of any other smartphone OS on the market. It was based off of Cyanogenmod but is much more stable. Which is probably why MIUI's features keep getting copied by other companies. If you had been a MIUI user you'd know that all the fancy new features on Android P can be found on the two years older MIUI 8. Meanwhile MIUI 9 and 10 have features android users will be waiting another two or more years for. And don't even get me started on iOS. They're still trying to get all the MIUI 7 features down on iOS 12.
LilPump2077, 02 Jul 2018I dropped mine on the concrete and the screen cracked in the down left corner,and after severa... moreWell it is glass. Be glad you don't own one of those all glass phones. But I am glad that the newer stock of these phones have the upgraded ceramic formula of MIX 2 and beyond. The first batch of MIX had more fragile ceramic. That's why when you look for reviews on youtube they say that the phone is incredibly fragile. These days phones like MIX 2 even the Essential Phone can withstand some crazy drops.
