Xiaomi Mi Max specifications Review :

The specs and features of Mi Max are just a larger rendition of Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3. Mi Max has focused more on content consumption and a little bit on creation too.

Look and Feel

Mi max sports a massive 6.44 inch full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection which can make an iPhone look smaller.

The Sunlight display technology helps in better reading of text outdoors.

The glass on the screen is rounded and there are chamfered edges along the metal body of Mi Max.

The volume and power buttons are housed on the right while the left edge sports a dual hybrid SIM tray. The micro USB port and mono speaker are placed at the bottom while the infra red emitter and headphones socket are at the top.

The rear panel sports the primary camera, dual LED flash and fingerprint sensor.

With an enormous build, mi Max is not easy to use single handed and daily usage might get you accustomed to it.

Xiaomi Mi Max Specifications and Software :

Mi max comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC, 3GB RAM, 32 GB storage. It runs on Android Marshmallow with MIUI 7 on top and will be upgradeable up to MIUI 8.

Mi Max include ‘One Handed mode’ options in the Settings menu to shrink the contents of display to 4.5 or 4 or 3.5 inches to the bottom corners of the display. This can be done by simply swiping left or right on the capacitive button.

“Shortcut Menu” or “Quick Ball” option in Mi Max lets you assign five shortcuts to any app or function to multi task easily. This floating screen ball called the “Quick Ball” can be accessed from any app or home screen.

There are pre-installed apps like Security to check data usage and clean junk; Themes to customize the look of your mobile; Mi remote to act as the remote control for your TV with the infra red emitter; and third party apps like Facebook, WPS Office, SwiftKey, Flipkart and Fleksy.
