Xiaomi Mi Max : Terrific smartphone for its price tag

With the announcement of Xiaomi Mi Max, you now have a 6.44-inch smartphone that packs the best of what a mid-ranged device has to offer. Coming to the hardware bits, Xiaomi Mi Max features a Snapdragon 650 for the starting model, while two other models feature a Snapdragon 652. Initial rumors believed that 2GB and 3GB RAM were going to be present inside the phone, but the starting model features 3GB of RAM, while the better models feature 4GB of RAM, something that you honestly would not expect from a mid-ranged smartphone, but here we are.


Xiaomi Mi Max might just measure 7.5mm in thickness, but even that thickness is able to place in a massive 4,850mAh battery. As mentioned before, there are three different models and their hardware and pricing details have been provided below:

  • Snapdragon 650 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage will cost RMB 1,499 or $230
  • Snapdragon 652 with 3GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage will cost RMB 1,699 or $260
  • Snapdragon 650 with 4GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage will cost RMB 1,999 or $306


The presence of the efficient and powerful Cortex-A72 cores are well known to the smartphone universe, and you will get a nice fluid experience from Xiaomi Mi Max in an affordable price range. One of the key highlights of the phone is that it features a 4,850mAh battery and you have the option to incorporate a 200GB MicroSD card slot inside the second SIM card slot of the handset.


Apart from this, there is also a fingerprint and infrared sensor present, plus a 16MP PDAF (phase detection autofocus) rear camera, and a 5MP shooter with a very wide angle lens of 85 degrees. Xiaomi Mi Max is going to be available to purchase sometime in the future and for its price tag, screen size and battery capacity, the smartphone will definitely be a great buy.
