Xiaomi Mi Max was officially launched in India at ₹ 14,999. This smartphone was one of the much-anticipated ones as it came from Xiaomi that is known for launching reasonably priced devices with better specs and features. Here are a few things to consider before you convince yourself to buy it.
Great and Premium Design
Undoubtedly, the Mi Max is a beautiful looking device. It is made out of metal adding to the elegance of its design. Everything about the phablet is premium. However, because of its huge size, using it in one hand might be a problem. Moreover, it is heavier than the other smartphones due to the aluminum alloy design.

The huge 6.44-inch 2.5D curved screen display has very narrow or no bezels on the sides giving the device a great look. There is minimalistic design at the back except for the logo, camera, and fingerprint scanner. It is an awesome piece from Xiaomi that is a combination of aluminum, metal, and glass.
You’ll be spoilt for choice
The Xiaomi Mi Max was initially launched in many variants based on the chipset, RAM and storage capacity. In India, Xiaomi has released the Snapdragon 650 variant with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of native storage capacity at Rs 14,999. It has claimed that the Snapdragon 652 variant with 4 GB RAM and a whopping 128 GB of nativ memory capacity will be launched soon at ₹ 19,999. Notably, there is 128 GB of expandable storage support in the Mi Max with a micro SD card slot.
Fast fingerprint scanner
There is a fingerprint scanner at the back of the Xiaomi Mi Max that is claimed to be quite fast and accurate as well. This will make the smartphone highly secure as users can use their fingerprint to unlock the device. This fingerprint sensor can be used to click photos using both the cameras.
Impressive Battery Life
This is one of the most impressive aspects of the Mi Max. It is energized by a monstrous 4,850 mAh battery. Though it seems to be big, it is necessary for the FHD display that will drain the battery more than you actually thought. This battery is claimed to give a life of over a day to the Mi Max.
Not so impressive low light photography
Xiaomi Mi Max flaunts a 16 MP main snapper at its back with PDAF and f/2.0 aperture. While the usual picture quality and level of details are good, the low light shots are not that great. To clock good low light shots, you need to use the dual-tone LED flash even if the subjects are in close distance. There is a front-facing 5 MP camera sensor with 85-degrees wide angle lens. This camera is moderate in terms of quality.
Being a metal-built phone, the Mi Max houses a non-removable battery. This is a norm that almost all the metallic phones come with.
