Mi Mix is enriched with all latest connectivity options such as 3G, 4G LTE, VoLTE for HD voice calling, Bluetooth, NFC, Infrared, OTG, FM, GPS and Wi-Fi 802.11ac, with USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer.

Features

  • Big Screen: Bigger the screen, bigger the magic of watching cinema serials or playing games. In addition to that, it has a screen-to-body ratio of 91.3percent and 1300:1 contrast ratio which is spectacular.
  • QHD Resolution: Phone has a stellar display of 2040*1080 which will enable you to watch HD 4K videos without any hindrance.
  • Bezel Lessness: This bezel lessness has completely stunned the audience as no one knows where are the sensors. So, Xiaomi has just managed to circumvent their need by using a sonar-based sensor and by placing the speaker below the display and using ceramic vibrations to allow for the audio from a call to be heard. Everything else has been put on the screen.
  • Humongous Memory: Phone comes with a solid memory of 128 GB and in premium version 256 GB, which is more than enough for storing your favorite movies, songs, and games.
  • RAM: Phone comprises 4GB RAM or 6GB RAM based on versions, which is very suitable for running highly graphic games and improving the performance of the phone while multi-tasking.
  • Show Off: Phone has 18 karat Gold rings around Camera and fingerprint circles, which just displays your lavish lifestyle and suits your standard.
  • Strongly Built: The smartphone is also scratch-resistant and has been awarded 8.5 points on Mohs scale of hardness – iPhone 7 only rates as a 6.

Disappointments

  • Availability Issue: This is a concept phone and will be manufactured in a very limited stock. Moreover, it will only be available in China, for other parts of the world it won’t be available.
  • Carrying Issue: Practically carrying a 4-inch expensive rectangular slab is more of a headache than an advantage.
  • Screen Display: Phone lacks in display due to the absence of AMOLED display, which can be a deal breaker.
  • Camera: The color reproduction is felt weak when compared to iPhone 7 and Pixel. That’s why the phone can not compete with excellent range phone cameras.
  • Design: Phone has been developed targeting the affluent section and not for students. Moreover, it has a very smooth body which makes it hard to hold.
  • Useless Gold Ring: Gold ring which is meant to surround camera and fingerprint sensor will be encased in Leather case, no one can even see it.
  • Price: The company is known for its budget-friendly technology, but this one is not that cheap. Phone price is $519, and premium version costs your pocket with $593.

Box Contents

Verdict

Xiaomi has tried to introduce a device which can compete in the premium segment by introducing stellar features, but the product fails to beat Pixel and iPhone 7 in quality. Even the availability of this phone is the greatest problem. Overall, if you are ready to spend some extra dollars for import and have a budget that does not allow you to buy iPhone 7 or Pixel, then you can try this phone.
