Overview Features

Display and Build

For its display, the Xiaomi Mi Max has a 6.44-inch full-HD display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a pixel density of 342 ppi. Compared to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3's 5.5 inch display, Mi Max's display is quite large. According to Xiaomi's Global Vice President, Hugo Barra, despite the huge display, the Xiaomi Mi Max is still "extremely pocketable". This large screen which is sharp can provide ease of usage and a better gaming experience. Xiaomi's Sunlight Display technology on this display makes words and images clearer under sunlight. Serving as a protection against scratch and cracks on the screen is a Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

The Mi Max has an all metal body and this gives it durability and its premium look. It has a dimension of 173.1 x 88.3 x 7.5 mm (height x width x thickness) and weighs 203 grams. At 7.5 mm, it is slimmer than the smaller Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. Even though it has a huge display that might make it hard to handle with one hand, its light weight for a device of this size still makes it easy to carry about. Included at its rear is a fingerprint sensor for added security and the MI logo at the bottom. The Xiaomi Mi Max comes in three different color options of silver, gold and dark grey.

Processor and OS

The Mi Max is available in three different variants based on RAM and storage options. Variants of this device have: 3GB RAM with 32GB Internal memory, 3GB RAM with 64GB Internal memory and 4GB RAM with 128GB Internal memory respectively. Each of these variants Internal memory is expandable up to 200GB via microSD card (hybrid slot: the microSD card uses the same slot as the first SIM). Depending on a user's storage needs, any of the variants can provide a large enough space for multimedia, apps and games. Also, the large RAM size on each variant ensures the device is lag free.

Xiaomi Mi Max is powered by an hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 and an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor for the 3GB and 4GB RAM variants. 
  • 3GB RAM and 32GB Internal storage model – powered by Snapdragon 650 SoC
  • 3GB RAM and 64GB Internal storage model – powered by Snapdragon 652 SoC
  • 4GB RAM and 128GB Internal storage model – powered by Snapdragon 652 SoC

The Mi Max runs on Xiaomi's MIUI 8 user interface based on Android v6.0 Marshmallow OS. Its OS has some features that are not found in stock Android. For example, one can quickly turn on the flashlight just by holding down the home button and there's a feature similar to the IPhone's Assistive Touch that gives users quick access to the phone's home, menu and back buttons while also adding other features such as taking a screenshot. 


The Xiaomi Mi Max features a 16MP rear camera with a 2.0 aperture. This camera has features which include dual-tone dual-LED flash, phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and image stabilization. For its secondary camera, It has a resolution of 5MP that is high enough to capture clear selfies and video calls. Since camera performance greatly depends on the software, the Mi Max running Android 6.0 with MIUI 8 will make it able to deliver decent pictures.

Battery and Connectivity

The battery capacity of the Xiaomi Mi Max is 4,850mAh and should be capable of keeping the phone powered for hours before the need to recharge. This battery is non removable and takes advantage of Li-Ion technology. Quick charging 3.0 support has been provided, where half an hour's charge can give a battery level of 83%.

The Mi Max supports dual SIM with dual standby functionality. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, NFC, 3G , 4G LTE, Bluetooth v4.2 and GPS. Sensors on this device include fingerprint, accelerometer,  ambient light, gyroscope, proximity, and compass sensors.

Tech Lass's Verdict:

The Xiaomi Mi Max's display which is its main selling point is no doubt designed to provide awesome viewing. Although the display does not really give it a major advantage over other Xiaomi phones, Its specs which make the Mi Max one of the most desirable phablets are quite remarkable.

A battery with a large capacity to store more power that will be consumed by its display is one of the perks of this device. I expect that a battery of this capacity will last longer than a day on full charge, especially when you consider the device's processor and optimized software. 

Good display, good RAM size and Internal memory, powerful processors, large battery capacity, fast mobile data support (4G) and a budget friendly price; i think these would be the basic needs of an average smartphone user, and the Xiaomi has got these.  Agreed, these specs can be found on other midrange devices but not at the same price at which the Xiaomi Mi Max is being offered.
