Xiaomi Mi Max: Review

Xiaomi has set its sights on the Indian market and is giving other brands a run for their money. Over the last couple of months, the Chinese giant has launched one product after another. Xiaomi took it one step further by blurring the lines between phone and tablet – ‘phablet’ – and recently launched their largest ever phone by Xiaomi – Xiaomi Mi Max.

Mi Max is just the right size for anything you need a phone for, whether it is for viewing entertainment videos or even playing games. Plus, it doesn’t look too big when you hold it to your ears, unlike tablets. With Xiaomi Max, all the worries of a small screen will no longer plague you.

But Xiaomi hasn’t overlooked other features while making their biggest ever screen size phone. They’ve taken into consideration everything from its weight, user-friendliness and design. The Mi Max manages to stay slim with its width measuring up to 7.5mm only, even when the phone sports a metal body. The phone, with its chamfered edges all along its body, looks quite sophisticated. The look of the phone of will surely grab a lot of eyeballs.

Another advantage of the Xiaomi Mi Max is that, the phone has more space for a bigger battery. The phone comes with a large 4,850 mAh battery which is non-removable and has been tested to last up to a day. The phone is powered by a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 3GB ram and comes with 32GB of internal storage. Its storage can be expanded upto 128GB with a Micro SD Card. It runs on Android Marshmallow’s customized version for Xiaomi called MIUI 7, which is upgradeable to MIUI 8.

The Mi Max comes with a unique feature, which is aimed at making it easier for users called a ‘One Handed Mode’. It diminishes the content displayed on the phone’s screen to make it more accessible when the user is operating the phone with only one hand. This feature is a bonus for a phone the size of Mi Max. It also has ‘Quick Ball’ a shortcut menu feature similar to iPhone’s AssistiveTouch feature, which lets you add five shortcuts to a button which floats anywhere on the phone’s display.

Xiaomi comes packed with a really good music player, which is pretty handy when it comes to sorting the music in your phone, while its audio quality experience too is good – especially through its headphones. Xiaomi Mi Max manages to capture good quality photographs, what with its rear camera being 16 megapixel and front camera being 5 megapixel.

The Xiaomi Mi Max comes in three variants – Dark Grey, Gold and Silver and is available in online stores for INR 14,999.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
