2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Premium build quality
  • All-metal unibody design
  • Brilliant, massive 6.4-inch screen that gets good marks on image quality, sharpness and brightness
  • Lively and simple Xiaomi interface, that is comfortably on of the better Android UIs around
  • Very good speed/performance for the class - and a notch above the Mi Max, because of the higher RAM and the newer processor
  • Wired audio quality is perfect - loud and with very little distortion
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • Good call quality
  • Astounding battery life, easily one of the best ever on a smartphone, and with particularly great web browsing times - easily lasts 2 days of active use
  • Excellent build quality
  • Beautiful, premium, stunning design with a curved backing - this phone is a looker
  • Rounded rear makes it comfortable to hold
  • Compact and light-weight - fits snugly in your pocket
  • Excellent display with good brightness levels, high contrast, and outdoor readability
  • MIUI is one of the better, and neater Android UIs around and has useful customization options
  • Excellent performance with top-of-the-line hardware, that stands up against the very best, including the Galaxy S7 which is at a much higher price point
  • Very good camera performance with instant focus, fast shutter speed, better than expected low-light performance, plenty of resolved detail, high dynamic range, and excellent colors and contrast
  • Very good battery life, with fast charging support
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Good fingerprint scanner
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The phone's enormous size makes it hard to use one-handed
  • It's also heavy and will stick out uncomfortably in your pant's pocket
  • Given the gigantic size, the phone is primarily targeted at those users who consume a lot of media on their device, or want a combined phone-tablet - for more regular users the compromise of a difficult-to-handle size might not be worth it
  • Average sunlight legibility on the display
  • Loudspeaker performance could have been better
  • Average front and rear cameras, that could have been better especially in low light conditions
  • Video recording quality is underwhelming
