2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 13+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Premium build quality
  • All-metal unibody design
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • The phone's enormous size makes it hard to use one-handed

Display

  • Brilliant, massive 6.4-inch screen that gets good marks on image quality, sharpness and brightness
  • Average sunlight legibility on the display

Software

  • Lively and simple Xiaomi interface, that is comfortably on of the better Android UIs around

Performance

  • Very good speed/performance for the class - and a notch above the Mi Max, because of the higher RAM and the newer processor

Camera

  • Average front and rear cameras, that could have been better especially in low light conditions

Audio

  • Wired audio quality is perfect - loud and with very little distortion
  • Good call quality
  • Loudspeaker performance could have been better

Battery

  • 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

More

  • 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
