I took delivery of my Mi Mix yesterday. Ordered online at www.geekbuying.com. Took about 2 weeks to arrive in Australia from Hong Kong with standard delivery which is a normal time frame for such deliveries. Everything came complete in the package and an Australian adapter was thrown into the bargain. Beautiful phone indeed.
I am a BIG fan of BIG phones. I currently use a Nexus 6 (5.96 inches) for regular use and a Zenfone 3 Ultra with 6.8 inches screen for media consumption on the go. The Mi Mix is replacing the Nexus 6 which is now slowing down to the point of annoyance.
After years of using Nexus phones with rapid Android updates, I was worried that the Xiaomi will come with a vendor ROM with no possibility of updating in the long term as I have read often happens. But what do I know? Totally unjustified fears.
Instead, it came shipped with the Global Stable ROM Version 126.96.36.199 MAHMIDL (MIUI 8). I was instantly updated to Version 188.8.131.52 ROM (the most current version for the Mi Mix) within 10 minutes. Impressed indeed. While I don't mind the MIUI System Launcher, I now use the Google Now Launcher complete with the App Drawer. It's like I have stock Android with the additional benefits of the MIUI ROM. The Mi Mix works just like my old Nexus (when it was new!) and I have to keep reminding myself that I have a Chinese phone. In saying that I do not mean any derogation (How can I? The best phones come from there and you should see my Mi Mix). I was merely making reference to the lack of any Chinese characters in my user experience.
More about user experience.
I have downloaded the Snap Camera App for my camera and what a change in the camera performance. Right now I can only say the pictures in low light are way better. I will post more later.
This is Good smartphone but i use Gretel GT6000 and this is a wonderful phone with Long Lasting battery 6000mAh and you know this phone also have dual rear camera. This is a Good Looking and feature reach phone

PKM1. There will only be a 5T if Qualcomm decides to make a succesor til the 835 that is coming this year (not next year since it will be the 845)
I just bought one. It's my second Xiaomi, the first one I had was the 4. I came back to Xiaomi from iPhone 7plus because once you've used a Xiaomi interface nothing compares and you never forget how beautiful it was to use. The problem with my last one was the shockingly bad, no ill say TERRIBLE camera quality on both sides. I had hoped with paying an absolute premium for a top of the line model this time that the camera would have improved drastically. I took a gamble and we'll, I lost. This camera seems just as bad, if not worse than the other one. I feel extremely let down and should remind the company that having a quality camera on a high end model is so important because that's one of the main things a lot of people look for. How could you make such a beautiful expensive phone and then hurt your customers with such a low quality camera. I cant even use the pictures I take in Instagram because the filters on the app only highlight how low the camera quality is. Everything except for this major issue is perfect but I have to admit, I am heartbroken that I can't take photos with this like I used to on my iPhone or on my Samsung. I may have to buy a stand alone camera now. Come on Xiaomi, you can surely give a premium camera. I paid a lot for a quality device. I still love using my Xiamo Mix but I hate using the camera. Please please please develop a camera that's worth what I paid for this phone. Thanks
