Mi Mix review: Revolutionary Xiaomi Mi Mix is breathtaking

 

It's been a long time since a new phone announcement got us as excited as did the Mi Mix. This revolutionary new phone gives a taster of what to expect from the smartphone market over the coming years. Read our Mi Mix review for more.

Xiaomi's Mi Mix offers very good value when you consider its meaty core hardware and generous 256GB of storage - it's a lot less than you'd pay for an iPhone 7 Plus. This isn't a phone you buy with budget in mind, however: the Mi Mix is the phone you...

Xiaomi Mi Mix review

 

The Xiaomi Mi Mix is, I think, what most phones will look like a few years from now. And believe me, it's awesome. The 6.4-inch screen covers almost the entire face of the phone, and the buttons you'd usually find on the front are now onscreen.

The edgeless display on Xiaomi's Mi Mix is simply amazing, and the ceramic rear gives the phone a luxurious feel. The base model has 128GB of storage.

The phone is only sold in China and in limited quantities, and it's also Xiaomi's most expensive yet. The camera's pretty average at best and taking selfies can be awkward.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix is a glimpse of the all-screen future of phones. But Xiaomi needs to improve on basics like the camera and find a way to make more of these before we can wholeheartedly recommend it.

Xiaomi's Mi Mix 2 works on LTE anywhere in the world

 

This snappy, all-screen phone costs less than the Note 8.

The bezel-less Xiaomi Mix 2 is fast, snappy, and packs LTE support for the whole world.

The selfie camera is still located at an awkward place below the display, and the phone is only sold in limited countries. It also lacks water resistance.

The Mi Mix 2 is the perfect bezel-less phone for Android fans all over the world, but can be hard to get if you don't live in China or India.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Phablet Review

 

It's all about the screen. Xiaomi installs a huge 6.4-inch screen in a casing that is just a bit bigger than those of conventional premium-range smartphones into its new high-end phablet. Starting at a price of around 700 Euros (~$737), it is not...

impressive screen, solid, high-quality built casing, dual-SIM, Miracast, USB OTG, and NFC, MIUI 8.0 with many extra features, reliable fingerprint scanner, high performance, leather casing included, long battery life

throttles during permanent load, fingerprint-susceptible casing, no headset included, non-removable battery, camera without image stabilizer, no localization in Germany, incomplete English translation, no Google services ex-factory, no LTE band 20

The highlight of the Mi Mix is certainly its unusual 6.4-inch IPS screen that is almost edgelessly incorporated into an elegant ceramic casing. Not only does its large surface look impressive, but its resolution, brightness, and contrast are everyday...

Xiaomi Mi MIX Review - all screen, almost all of the time!

 

The XIaomi Mi Mix gives us a glimpse into what the future for smartphones possibly hold but at the same time, it shows us how that future is further than we hope. Whichever way you look at it, it's the closest we've ever come to the holy grail of a...

Flashy design ; Almost no bezel! ; Snapdragon 821 works great ; High storage capacity ; Great battery life despite screen size ; Software includes features Western UIs lack

Though flashy, design is far from accessible ; Near bezel-less 17:9 display gains bezels when viewing typical content ; MIUI a bit of mess, mostly due to lack of app drawer ; Cameras are aggressively average ; Front facing camera location not at all ideal

Hands-on with the Mi MIX, Xiaomi's all-screen, all-ceramic flagship phone

 

91.3% screen-to-body ratio, all-ceramic casing, no traditional proximity sensor and earpiece, Snapdragon 821 SoC - the Xiaomi Mi MIX is without doubt the most jaw-dropping phone you'll see all year. And it's actually shipping in China soon. We go...

Xiaomi Mi MIX review: who needs a bezel anyway?

 

Through the Xiaomi Mi MIX, we come to the end of 2016 with one of the most interesting smartphones of the year. The Mi MIX gives us a hint of how smartphones could look in 2017. Xiaomi combines an almost borderless display in the Mi MIX with new and...

Excellent workmanship ; Exciting (almost) borderless display ; Good performance ; Decent battery life

Both cameras are only satisfactory ; Slippery surfaces ; Fingerprint magnet ; Piezoelectric acoustic element projects sound widely

The Xiaomi Mi MIX leaves you with a general impression of high-quality. Unfortunately though, the ceramic case is prone to fingerprint marks and the smooth surface coupled with the relatively heavy weight of 209 grams doesn’t assure a secure grip and...

Love struck

 

SummaryFor a brand I never thought I'd own the Xiaomi Mi Mix has exceeded my expectations. I've always owned flagship phones from top of the range HTC to Samsung Note 1,2,3 & 5, to Nexus 6. I was eagerly waiting... no, I was actually salivating for the...

Sheer beauty... I often catch myself staring at the phone... even if it's turned off.
