Go Big or Go Home
True to its name, the Xiaomi Mi Max really maximizes on both size and battery life. The Xiaomi Mi Max is an extra-large smartphone that errs closely into tablet territory. This is thanks to the massive 6.44-inch display on the front of the device; and as if the display isn’t already huge, Xiaomi has opted for capacitive buttons on the bottom chin of the smartphone, giving users a whole extra row of usability on the smartphone.
The large display boasts a Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) that is crisp and clear, and also bright, making outdoor use under sunlight easy. The large display may difficult to handle at first for people who are not familiar with larger phones, but it does offer a larger screen real-estate that make watching video very enjoyable. Mobile games and other applications also take advantage of the larger screen by offering a much clearer view at texts and menu, so no more squinting at the display to see what is written on it.
Massive Battery Capacity
As stated, the large Full HD display on the Xiaomi Mi Max isn’t the only big thing. Xiaomi has managed to put in a massive 4850 battery capacity into the large and slim Mi Max body – it is their largest battery ever put into a Xiaomi smartphone too. Paired with the frugal Snapdragon 652 chipset, the Xiaomi Mi Max offers up to 10 hours of continuous video playback.
The battery will last most users well throughout a whole day and then more; some have even experienced an amazingly long 9 hours of screen on time with the Mi Max! Forget worrying about bringing your charger or power bank, the Mi Max will keep up with your productivity and entertainment on the go.
The large Mi Max is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, which is a rather impressive processor. It delivers great performance on every aspect of the smartphone, most users will be hard-pressed to notice the difference between the Mi Max and a more expensive flagship smartphone in the typical day-to-day usage.
Out of the box the Xiaomi Mi Max runs on Xiaomi’s very own custom version of Android, MIUI 7; an incredibly feature rich custom user interface for Xiaomi smartphones. However, MIUI 8 will also be made available on the Mi Max, bringing about large changes to the design of the user interface and many more features.
