Added 16'E July:
I have now added MIUI 8 of the phone which is still in beta. But it works just excellent and I have not encountered any allvaliga bugs or something that made the phone unstable in any way. Yesterday I used the phone as a GPS on a little roadtrip 100 mil and the GPS was turned on all the time with the app Here Maps. In addition, I used the phone normally, when I was not driving (photographed a lot, for example, and social media) and landed on a screen time of 4 hours when I was home again after 21 o'clock at night and we went away 04:00 at night . After all this, I had 20% remaining battery power.
MIUI 8 is located a bit closer to Vanilla Android, especially in notifikationscentret. But I think that everything is a cruel refinement out of Vanilla which I personally think is a childish appearance and strange color choice and feels beta / developer throughout. Do MIUI 8 is much better looking and polished. MIUI 8 rolls on as good as 7'an largely even if it is currently in beta.
Xiaomi and MIUI I think there are very many people know but I do not believe that it is just as common for people to get their MIUI experience through one of their phones, but it feels like it is common that many have tried it through the Custom ROM . I have done it several times over the years with various phones and I have always liked MIUI. This is the first time that I get the "full experience" by using it on their own hardware.
It's better to get it out into the world at one time but this is a great phone. No matter how you twist and turn it with the right small bezels etc so it still has a 6.44 "screen, so to say that it is easy would be a lie. This is not my first acquaintance with a 6.44" screen time I had a Sony Z Ultra in its time. The difference is that it was still greater because larger bezels. I remember I actually thought that Z Ultra was too big and bulky and thus I sold it. I can not quite get that feeling with Mi Max. Although it is large, it goes down the most out of my pockets with a few exceptions. It has curved sides on the back helps to make it feel a little more comfortable rather than completely edgy as Z Ultra was. Small details make a lot when we're up in these sizes.
One of the first things that strikes you when you started up the phone and gotten past the lock screen is that the phone has only four icons on the width and unable to change it to something more in the way of the stock launcher, which is downright miserable. There are no planes to spy on my phone from the air and watch the apps I have, but I'm down here on the ground. It is almost so that you can keep the phone a little further away from the face than usual to get a good overview. So big it will be. Of course you can replace launcher. But during the first trial, I have given me hell to run stock. There is a negative aspect of switching launcher I've noticed and that is that once you do it you lose access to the system's own wallpaper. It is therefore not possible to change the background on the built-in lock screen if you are running a different launcher, which is incredibly stupid and frustrating. What you can do then if you want to change the background on the lock screen is to change the default launcher temporary and change, and then change back to Nova. Anslutningsvis I would also mention that the interface is not particularly suited at all for a larger screen. There is no option to reduce the size of the content and the time becomes very large, with some exceptions, which I find hard. I want a large screen to use the surface slick and not everything just gets bigger when it's totally pointless for me with big screen when (as long as the vision works well). Therefore, I have personally changed the DPI by ADB. Some small graphical glitches occur but it will be worth it when there is something serious that makes me upset me on that. MIUI 8 is going have a custom own version just for Mi Max but the way in which it is adapted do not know. However, there is a function to reduce the content of the screen and it is similar to Huawei's version but it is a bit more powerful in MIUI for one can choose between three different sizes of the reduced section to simulate between 3.5 "- 4.5".
Launcher also lack appdrawer and stuff, I have difficulty. It becomes very difficult to organize things and it feels very messy. They have at least one feature that makes it very easy to move as many icons you want at one time between screens. There is not much more to say about the launcher. The vast majority probably remove it. There is a positive small detail with that I noticed. When attaching the Clock widget on the home screen will disappear at the top of the status bar automatically on the screen and come back if you swipe to a different page. A small positive detail of it all that makes me believe that they at least try to think a little bit here. Back button is located on the right side ala Samsung, and there are many who have difficulty with it. But there is in any case the possibility to change it so that one "change place" on the capacitive buttons if desired.
Apart from the launcher and its lack of good vibes, I can not say the same about the rest out of the system. I like MIUI. It feels modern and stylish and polished. It's a bit the same style as Huawei's EMUI but personally I think MIUI is so much more polished in its design and provide a more positive experience. Although I do not think EMUI is bad in any way, I think much better of MIUI. But I already knew from before when I've been running it as a custom ROM. The animations of the system is good and some is stock Android while others are their own variant. But they give a good impression and is more polished animations in the style of materials design than Huawei's feels a little "rough" and not as refined. Especially beautiful is Xiaomi's Clock app, which has beautiful design materials animations when you swipe between tabs.
Their theme engine is something that is light years in front of the variation we find in Huawei. Again, the right equally structured but ANSA so much more powerful in MIUI. You can pick up a theme from several different and there are many things you can change individually. Phone app and SMS app go both to change separately, for example. Then once you've got it where the theme that you think looks good, you can also save it to your own so you can easily go back to what you yourself have put together later. Immensely impressed out its theme engine and I think it is the most powerful and best theme engine available on Android. There is also a plethora of themes to look through if desired. MIUI is very white in the original design with elements of different colors. It's flat design that comes and it falls me well in the taste. I therefore feel personally no direct need to change the theme, but I've only done it a few individual things such notifikationsbaren and icons.
We move on to the hardware you're the big screen the characteristics of this phone. It's a good panel, but has some weaknesses. Pure crass, I prefer this panel in front of the one I had in my Huawei Mate 8. Not that there is a better panel in any way but to my taste better because of certain things. Partly because it's easier on the eyes for me. It is not perceived as "dazzling". Slightly more sense to look at a paper like AMOLED without any part having a Amoledskärms properties. It is simply easier on my eyes. 1080p at 6.44? "No problem, I experienced no problems with sharpness on this panel or looking pixels. The LCD faring well on large sizes with 1080p unlike AMOLED who would have looked completely miserable with the same resolution of this size due to the infamous PenTile matrix. I'm glad they stayed at 1080p. the screen also goes down the brightness so low so use in total darkness dazzle even appreciably when white background is shown. However, it is not very bright and it is not visible as well outdoors in bright soljjus.
Incidentally, so is the rest out hardware is good with a good sense of quality, but it is not at the same level as the S7 Edge or Galaxy 8. One feels that its aluminum is thinner than the Galaxy 8, for example, and press on the back so you can see that it flexes a bit. Also happens that the cracks a little in the design if it gets a little turn / push on it. But on the whole the feeling is good. Although the keys have a good resistance and are quite stiff and I never touch any of the mistakes I made in the constant Mate 8th
1080p also provides the advantage in the shape of a little more battery life when it does not need to shuffle around as much pixels. With a battery of 4850mAh whole and its resolution as the battery life is absolutely incomparable even though the screen is very big. Mate 8 has fantastic battery life, which I have always said. So I do not really know what praise I will use in this review because it is even more durable than Mate 8. My first full charge cycle as I went through lasted 1 day and 13 hours. During that time I used the phone a lot more than I usually do. So when it was time to recharge again after 1½ days so I had a screen time of just over 11 hours. It's crazy and far longer than most phones are capable of. It is a real challenge to the death of this in one day. For minor use, you can certainly go for 3 days and probably even an entire work week. The 2 nights that I did not put it on charge, it has lost 1% battery both times during the night's rest.
Processor that operates the telephone is a Snapdragon 650. Thus no scaling hardware ship in any way. But for under 3000 SEK one can not really expect it. I had no idea what to expect before I had it in his hand. But there seems to be a very energy-efficient processor. I notice no direct difference of power behind it either over anyway my S7 Edge. I think it feels just about as fast as my S7 Edge when starting apps, etc. Something small smålagg occasionally ala Samsung. It can hesitera short moments sometimes like my S7 Edge does. But the smooth running of the system is very good and it performs not worse there than my S7 Edge rather slightly softer, I would say. I play very rarely or almost never on the phones but the ones I've tried have actually rolled on better than on my S7 Edge (especially Monument Valley). I think all this talk about the properties of my S7 Edge than it does for Mi Max.
The camera does its job, but not much more. I honestly have not had time to test it as thoroughly and then I have an S7 Edge so I do not care so much about the camera in this fact. But it seems to take quite OK pictures in daylight, but the quality fails right as soon as the dimmer lights and details smeared and it feels a bit more like a water painting. At night it becomes images directly bad and everything looks like a messy porridge. Lack of OIS does not help directly. On the whole, so good enough camera, and can produce images that look good in the right conditions.
This phone is like the Huawei Mate 8 equipped with a fingerprint reader that is located in the same place. Like Huawei, this is a well-functioning readers. Actually miss it much less often than it did for me on the Galaxy 8, which I personally had some problems with. Failed very often Mate 8 and needed a second try. This I think is due to the the Galaxy 8 is actually faster. I glide with your finger a little when I'll lock up, feeling for the reader. Thus so failed first attempt often to me on the Galaxy 8. It does not make it at Mi Max. This reader is able to read my fingerprint while the finger is still sliding on the surface. The result of that is that I am on the whole almost never failed an unlock on this phone. I can count the times on one hand indeed. The Mate on 8 frustrated me in the end because of this problem, even if it was faster when it works well. But this gives me still profits to the fingerprint reader when it is much more forgiving if not quite as fast.
Only when I got this phone I liked the sound in the headphones was pretty bad compared to my S7 Edge but it seems that any of the updates I've received has prevailed cure it. For now it is comparable with my S7 Edge. On my S7 Edge, I have Viper4Android installed to bring order to the sound but it is not needed at Mi Max. The I drive without Viper4Android and the built-in equalizer allows an equally good job. The dynamics are very good too. In addition, the maximum volume is very high at Mi Max. It can pump up so high that it hurts your ears. Incredibly pressure in volume compared to most smartphones today.
In sum, this is a very affordable phone. Personally, I bought from my Aliexpress for 3000kr with shipping included. It is the only phone I run today. Sold my S7 Edge because I prefer big phones.
