PROS:
  • Fast and accurate fingerprint reader, IR blaster, FM radio
  • Good all-round camera experience with plenty of shooting modes.
  • Solid, mid-range performance. It is powerful enough for most everyday tasks.
  • Flexible and feature-rich MIUI 9.1; Based on a current Android Oreo core.
  • Great audio output quality and fairly loud stereo speaker setup
  • Dual SIM LTE standby
  • Great battery life, although it could potentially be better; Quick Charge 3 support.
  • Huge 6.9-inch, 18:9, FullHD+ display; Surprisingly color accurate.
  • Solid build quality.
CONS:
  • Decent edge detection on Portrait mode, but we expected more from the dual camera setup.
  • Limited camera Manual controls (only ISO and white balance).
  • EIS does not work at 4K resolution with the Mi camera app.
  • AI scene detection seems to be missing from camera UI.
  • Still no MIUI 10 update; Mi AI assistant and a few other features are still only available in Chinese.
  • No official mention of Gorilla Glass.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3

I’m wondering if any of you are looking for the largest possible smartphone you can use, without basically going into tablet territory, well look no further than the Xiaomi Mi Max 3, exactly how practical is it to use something this large, well let’s find out in the full review .

Xiaomi Mi Max 31

maybe the Galaxy Note 9 is a bit too pricy for some, after all it is a thousand-dollar phone, but if you’re looking for something even bigger than the note 9 that’s a lot easier on your wallet, you might want to take a look at the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 .

Xiaomi Mi Max 32

there’s no getting around it, this phone is big like really big, you’ll really need to use two hands to use this phone, on the bottom is a single downward firing loudspeaker, which is fairly loud .

Xiaomi Mi Max 33

and of course there’s a USBC port though it’s only got USB 2.0 transfer speeds, at the top is a full-size headphone jack and there’s even an IR blaster, a feature that’s been slowly dying off of smartphones .

Xiaomi Mi Max 34

picking up the phone it’s pretty hefty, it feels like this phone wasn’t really designed for small hands, since the rear mounted fingerprint scanner is so far up the back of the phone, at least the power key is somewhat reachable .

Xiaomi Mi Max 35

if you’d rather not depend on the fingerprint scanner so much you could always use face unlock, which was fairly consistent, but still not as secure as your fingerprint .

Xiaomi Mi Max 36

apart from the size there isn’t much exciting about the overall design of the phone, it’s pretty average for your run-of-the-mill Chinese phone, you’ve got your metal back with a matte finish, a rear fingerprint scanner and a dual camera setup, up in the corner there in similar fashion to the iPhone 10 .

Xiaomi Mi Max 37

of course the good thing about the design is that the bezels are thin enough to at least make it easy enough to hold in one hand, like when you’re making a phone call, actually using it in one hand though is a totally different story .

Xiaomi Mi Max 38

for the first time in the Xiaomi Mi Max series there’s a taller 18:9 display, so the diagonal dimension works out to 6.9 inches large, this is an IPS LCD panel with full HD plus resolution and it does get fairly bright almost 500 nits, which is not bad in bright light, I’m also pretty glad that Xiaomi did not resort to using a notch .

Xiaomi Mi Max 39

colors on this display are bright and vibrant and setting the display to the standard color mode preset showed us some surprisingly accurate colors as well, better than some flagships even .

Xiaomi Mi Max 39

so touching up photos on this screen will be great for social media professionals, who need great color accuracy, keeping up with the theme of the phone there’s a humongous 5,500 milliamp hour battery inside the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 . Read More : Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro

Xiaomi Mi Max 311

which means this phone can easily go through 2 consecutive days without eating a charge, in fact the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 ranks in the top 10 battery scores of the devices we’ve ever tested, with an overall score of a hundred and 15 hours .

Xiaomi Mi Max 312

it still didn’t manage to beat its predecessor the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 which had a smaller battery, but a more efficient display in LTE modem , that said the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 uses an updated Snapdragon 636 mid-range CPU paired with either 4 or 6 gigabytes of RAM .

Xiaomi Mi Max 313

you won’t get flagship level performance out of this phone, but that’s because devices of this size aren’t in a category of their own .

well pretty much any game can run fine on any Android phone these days, whatever you do end up playing on the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 will be a joy on this huge display . Read More : Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

Xiaomi Mi Max 314

MEUI has always been well optimized and power efficient in Xiaomi Phones and the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is no different, with the feature-rich MEUI 9.5 running over Android 8.1 Oreo, the Android skin is home to anyone who’s ever used a Xiaomi device in the past .

Xiaomi Mi Max 315

moving on to the camera, the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 borrows the same dual camera setup from some of its other redmi siblings, there’s a dual camera setup, which combines a 12 megapixel sensor and a 5 megapixel secondary camera, as well as a single tone dual LED flash .

Xiaomi Mi Max 316

focusing on the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is super quick and accurate thanks to dual pixel phase detection, shots taken with the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 look pretty good, there’s plenty of detail and dynamic grain is generally good . Read More : Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite

Xiaomi Mi Max 317

sharpness is well balanced and we struggle to spot any signs of noise, although colors could afford to be a little bit more vibrant, when it comes to low-light there’s a fairly bright f-stop of 1.9 and large 1.4 micron pixels which should help in dark lighting .

Xiaomi Mi Max 318

the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Theory took some pretty decent low-light shots, some photos might be noisier than others, so I’ve expected to be more of a hit or miss when it comes to low-light shooting .

otherwise, portrait shots aren’t terrible on Xiaomi Mi Max 3, you might notice some border mismatching on the shots but other than that nobody on Facebook or Instagram might even notice .

Xiaomi Mi Max 325

selfie portraits on the Xiaomi Mi Max 3’s 8 megapixel front camera, rely purely on software for facial detection and it can take portraits good enough for social media .

Xiaomi Mi Max 326

although this phone has mid-range hardware it can actually record video in 4k@30 frames per second, resolve details are quite good above average even .

Xiaomi Mi Max 327

colors were not too dull, while dynamic range was alright, there’s also a bit of noise but it’s not too terrible, this camera uses gyroscope based electronic image stabilization . Read More : Xiaomi Mi 9

Xiaomi Mi Max 328

which worked quite well in 1080p video, with the stock camera app doesn’t support stabilized video in 4k recording, there is a workaround though, I was actually able to get stabilization to work in 4k, by using the open camera app from the Play Store .

Xiaomi Mi Max 329

so as we get closer to the verdict, we have to wonder who is this phone for, it could be for anybody who might be suffering with a vision disability or maybe for somebody who is really large and has really large hands .

Xiaomi Mi Max 330

it’s really for anyone who wants the convenience of being able to do things on a large screen, you know it could also be for a left or uber driver who needs a really large display for navigation, but you would need to get a tablet mount to get it up on the dashboard in the first place .

Xiaomi Mi Max 331

the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 offers a great overall experience for anyone who’s really looking to get the convenience of a huge display, of course the size might not be for everyone, it might not fit in someone’s pockets, but if you like the idea of the added real estate the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 will definitely not disappoint you .
