Xiaomi Mi Max 3 by Redmi | Unboxing and Key Features

If you're a fan of huge phones and you've probably heard of Xiaomi Mi Max series and his latest release the Mi Max 3 has just arrived, so let's check it out.

Let's open up this box, first you see the phone and yeah it's a big one, let's take these stickers off, not bad looking. Put it off to the side and next is the reading materials and the sim key below that is the USB type-c cable and finally the 18 watt quick charger, so now that we have the Mi Max 3 on our hands let's go over as key features.


Massive screen one of the biggest benefits of having a phone this size is this large display and yes this phone is big, take a look compared to the Galaxy S9 plus.

But though it is made of metal the Mi Max 3 actually feels sort of light for the size, it weighs in at 221 grams, still though good luck trying to use this phone with one hand.

The display itself looks great though like last year it's an LCD but now it's six point nine inches with an 18 by 9 aspect ratio, even though the resolution is still 1080p content looks sharp the experience feels quite cinematic on this big screen compared to watching on smaller phones, but you probably won't be getting cinema grade audio from the me Max's unbalanced stereo speakers, the top one is hardly pulling its own weight but at least you can plug in headphones through the 3.5 millimeter jack when you want a personal experience.


An upgraded processor, the Mi Max 3 has a Snapdragon 636 chipset with either 4 or 6 gigs of ram, it's a step up from last year's Snapdragon 625. We've seen the 636 in this year's Redmi note 5 and it blew away the 625 in benchmarks it's still a mid-range chipset though and quite power efficient, we'll have to do more testing but performance feels good.
As for MIUY 9 is responsive and we got everything installed and running in no time.

There's plenty of space too it comes with up to 128 gigs of internal storage and it is expandable the only real hiccup so far is that a lot of things on our ROM are in Chinese, but that will change when the global version is out just remember that if you buy a gray import now make sure that the seller priam sells Google Play services and can promise updates down the line.


A giant battery pack, a lot of big phones bring the benefit of a big battery and the Mi Max 3 is no exception this is a 5500 milliampere battery capacity pretty crazy, it's even bigger than last year's Mi Max 2 which is 5300 milliampere, since last year's model had a superb score in our battery tests we'd expect nothing less from the Mi Max 3, we'll have to see their support for quick charge 3.0 and with the bundle of 18 watt charger you should be able to charge at a decent speed, don't expect anything lightning fast however with a battery this large.



A new dual camera set up this year's Mi Max 3 comes with dual cameras it's the same setup as on the Redmi note 5 AI dual camera phone. There's a 12 megapixel F 1.9 main shooter with dual pixel face detection autofocus and a secondary 5 megapixel depth sensor.

The camera has AI support and it can adjust settings for you based on scene detection, if the camera performance is like the red maze daylight images should be very good.

Here's a quick shots from the Mi Max 3 for you to check out:

Of course why have a dual camera if you're not going to shoot some portraits and here's a selfie sample we'll have a more in-depth analysis of the camera in our full review.

So there you have it guys, the Mi Max 3 definitely isn't for everyone, but if you don't mind the large form factor it does have a lot to offer, what do you think? let us know in the comments down below and we'll try to answer any questions you have in our for review coming soon.
