Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 hands-on review
Until web content can be beamed right away into our brains, we’ll need screens – the bigger, the better. The Phone screen 6.39″ of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is certainly attractive sizable and perfect, almost as big as the native. But size isn’t the only thing that creates it “good”.
Secondly, and it could be more important for the average user, is that a 5G Mi Mix 3 is now confirmed for a 2019 European release. The UK might just about still amount to part of Europe then, at least in the eyes of global marketing teams, so we’re pegging a UK Mi Mix 3 launch as more likely than not – MWC 2019 would be the clear regional launchpad for the phone.
Last week Xiaomi showed off a render of the upcoming Mi Mix 3 flagship that displays its notch-dodging slider mechanism, and now product management director Donovan Sung has followed up with a photo confirming another feature: 5G support. The phone is set to be launched in October, far untimely than any 5G networks are going to be up and running, but Sung says the company “can’t wait for the official rollout of 5G next year.”
Hot on the heels of Honor teasing the Magic 2 — a bezel-less flagship smartphone with a hidden move smoothly camera similar to the Oppo Find X — Xiaomi president Lin Bin posted the first official image of the company’s own upcoming Mi Mix 3, which is also a bezel-less flagship smartphone with a hidden move smoothly camera similar to the Oppo Find X (via NeddyPro).
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 specs
What smacks you when you see the Mi Mix 3 is its screen. A 6.39-inch Full HD+ AMOLED panel from Samsung with 19.5:9 feature ratio and 600-nit peak brightness occupy 93.4 percent of the phone. There’s no notch and only the smallest chin underneath the screen, which is covered in Gorilla Glass 5. You can enable an always-on display in the settings and you can regulate the color temperature of the display.

Pick up the Mi Mix 3 and the first thing you’ll observe is its weight; it is easily among the heaviest phones I’ve ever used. At 218 grams, it’s 10 percent weighty than either the Vivo Nex (199 grams) or the Galaxy Note 9 (201 grams). The Mi Mix 3 is a little slimline and shorter than the Note 9, but has a more assertive curve on the ceramic back panel so it feels a little less “edgy.”
The manual sliding mechanism is the standout countenance here, with neodymium magnets used to lock the slider in place when open or closed. As you start to push the display in or out you meet slight resistance as the magnets interact and then get that nostalgic click as the screen pops into place. It feels great and Xiaomi claims it can weather 300,000 cycles. Unlike other phones with hidden cameras, the machine is fully manual, so no motor is required. This is a much better solution and much less likely to be affected by from failure.
AI-supported studio lighting effects, portrait mode, and AI beautify settings round out the selfie options. I noticed some lens distress signal at the bottom of the frame, I expect from the overhead light bouncing off the edge of the screen section which sits right below the camera lens.

Xiaomi continues to make fun of its upcoming smartphone, the Mi Mix 3 and has now provided some camera samples. Xiaomi co-founder and head of state Lin Bin shared the low-light shots on Chinese social media website Weibo today in a time of the phone’s launch next week.
The bottom brink has twin speaker grilles but only the one on the right is a speaker, the other just Cover up a microphone. It gets decently loud and doesn’t sound unpleasant either, but it’s a far cry from excellent. It goes without saying there’s nowhere to incorporate a headphone jack on a slider phone and I’d do my best to keep the Mi Mix 3 away from water as it’s not IP rated. You’ll find a 3.5mm-to-USB-Type-C adapter incorporate in the box so you can easily use you be found wired headphones.
Battery life & quality of built:
The battery is a diminutive 3,200mAh cell, with the slider machine to blame for the smaller battery capacity. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ if you want to buy an optionally added charger, as well as the regular Qi standard.
