These are Xiaomi Mi Mix best features that end users might not know existed brought to you by you Sydney CBD Repair Centre Team.
I kid you not. While our photos and video might be enough to convince you, it’s when you pick up the phone, hold it in your hand and watch the 6.4-inch screen come to life that the whole idea of a magical bezel-less phone sinks in. I’ve been using the phone for around a week now, and I still can’t help but feel amazed every time I turn it on.
Now, I’m really not a fan of big-screen phones. I personally feel anything above 6 inches is unusable, and I didn’t really like the Xiaomi Mi Max (the company’s other super large 6.4-inch phone). Strangely, I found myself learning to like and use the Mix a lot more. The screen is still pretty big, but it doesn’t feel it compared to the Max, which is bigger in size thanks to its bezels. The palm rejection system on the Mix is a lot better too, which means you don’t tap as many things by accident.
GOOD CAMERA PERFORMANCE
In good lighting, it takes some great shots, but at night it struggles. The HDR sensor is accurately calibrated — an improvement on my previous experience with Xiaomi phones, which have tended not to detect when HDR needs to be turned on.
Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and boasting 4GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, the phone performs pretty much as you’d expect. Fluid, smooth and no lag. Games played great, especially the fast-moving 3D racing game Asphalt 8, and thanks to the large screen, the graphics looked better than ever.
Like iOS, MIUI lacks an app drawer, so apps have to go on the home screen. You do get the ability to muck around with your file system, unlike in iOS, and MIUI also has some pretty snazzy features of its own. A favorite of mine lets you hold down on an app to move it and use another finger to switch to a different screen, instead of dragging it to the edge as on most phones. Double tapping the home screen to wake the phone up is cool too.
LONG LASTING BATTERY
With a 4,400 mAh battery, you’d expect battery life to be good. But the phone seems to drain 30 percent when left idle overnight, which isn’t good at all. In our lab video battery test, however, the phone lasted 17 hours 52 minutes of continuous video playback, which is fantastic. I was able to get a full day of use with the phone, but you should leave it plugged in when you’re not using it to avoid that drain.
