There are a few first for Xiaomi on this phone, first 5G phone, first 512GB storage phone, first slider phone, first Mi Series with a dual front camera and the first 93.4% screen to body ratio phone which is the great addition for me on this Mi Mix 3.

Mi MIX 3 Design
The Mi MIX 3 debuted as the first Mi series gadget which gets as close as relatively 95% screen to body ratio, which means there is for all intents and purposes no verge on the display panel which is the first plan of the Mi MIX series which launch Xiaomi to notoriety years back. In any case, the first Mi MIX and the Mi MIX 2/2S sported a camera at the lower bezel of the phone which is a significant terrible idea in the event that you ask me, expecting to turn your phone 180 degrees just to take a photo.
Presently we saw that OPPO Find X completed a mechanized slider wherein the back panel of the phone will slide up at whatever point you press the camera button, however in Find X, everything is covered up under the slider, be it the front or the back camera. Be that as it may, the Mi MIX 3 completed a design individually, having the front camera covered up under the magnetic sliding mechanism wherein you simply need to physically pull the screen down at whatever point taking a selfie. This slider is said to endure a 300,000 slide, probably you wont reach that number in 2 years in the event that you not all that quite a bit of a selfie individual. This time Xiaomi incorporated a devoted Xiaomi man-made intelligence button wherein you can simply press the button when you need to converse with your friendly personal assistant.
Display and Audio
We were expecting a ton from the display side when Xiaomi has announced the Mi MIX 3 will sport an AMOLED display as compared to the FULL HD IPS from the Mi MIX 2S. The predecessor has officially done a great job on the display rendering department, its simply that the Mi MIX 3 just took it somewhat further on that department. We had ourself a copy of the Civil War in Blueray copy, and we additionally watched this on the Mi MIX 2S preceding, I could scarcely differentiate to be completely forthright with you, both are great.
The sound was brilliant, we have no problem kicking the sound to the max inside a little room of roughly 8 square meters and it can fill the entire room with sound. We additionally used our Xiaomi Mini Bluetooth Headset and the sounds rendered is very great while listening to music while hitting the gym.
We likewise endeavored to play PUBG and man it was heck of an experience, the display was truly great, most user are practically using a littler display in playing this graphics intense game, yet on the Mi MIX 3, it was basically a stroll in the park in terms of rendering its prerequisites. NBA2k19 was additionally tested and playing 3 full games was just a breeze.
The supported audio and video file format by the Mi MIX 3 are:MP4,XVID,M4V,MKV,WAV,AAC,MP3,AMR,FLAC
Supports video formats, for example, H.265/HEVC (Mainprofile), H.264 (Benchmark/Principle/Prominent), MPEG4 (Simple profile/ASP), VC-1 (Simple/Primary/Propelled profile), and supports PCM and AAC/AAC+/eAAC+, MP3, AMR – NB and WB, FLAC, WAV, and other audio formats support when playing HDR10 video content in high dynamic range display.
The top chipset for 2018, the greater part of the flagships this year sported this SoC and Mi MIX 3 was not a special case to this one as its predecessor the Mi MIX 2S officially used this chip. We would only envision how much fire power the phone would have if this SoC gets paired with a 10GB of DDR4x RAM. Its going to be thoroughly mind blowing without a doubt.
The Mi MIX 3 supports 5G connectivity, 24 distinctive LTE bands for the 8GB/256GB and the Museum Art Edition. A sum of 15 Bands is sent for the 6/128GB and 8/128GB Edition. It’s truly simple to switch to LTE network inside the settings, and it supports Dual 4G mode also.
You can freely pick which sim you need to utilize your LTE data, since this is a Dual LTE, Dual standby smartphone. This unit likewise has the 4G+ prepared, and furthermore supports different carrier aggregation technology (should your network provider have this feature), you can exploit it. Remote connectivity by means of Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/air conditioning is likewise smooth and it additionally supports Wi-Fi Direct.
Remote screen mirroring is likewise available by means of the Miracast protocol, tying data is additionally working perfectly. Bluetooth 5.0,GPS, and GLONASS are for the most part present, NFC (Near Field Communication) is additionally present to support Mi Pay, Android Pay and it empowers you to send data to an individual NFC user with simply tapping your phones together. Transfering data from more seasoned phones using Mi Mover was a breeze also.
Mi MIX 3 Camera
The Mi MIX 3 is a standout amongst other camera that Xiaomi has released by a wide margin during the current year, collecting one of the top spots in DXOMark, this assembles MIX 3 with the elites like the Mate 20 Pro. While Xiaomi has officially unlocked another accomplishment up until now, we can state that this camera performed exceptionally well under great lighting, there was a decent improvement on darker places.
The back camera are both 12 Megapixels, one being the Sony IMX 363 Sensor and the other being the Samsung S5k3m3. They additionally fused the 4-Pivot OIS in this one so expect great shots in motion photos.
The front snapper is additionally dual camera with a mix of Sony IMX 576 (24MP) and an Omnivision 02A10 2MP. Face Unlocking is present too, its not 3D dissimilar to the one in the Mi 8 Explorer Edition.
One observation that I made is that the Face Unlock Feature isn’t anything but difficult to use, as it will expect you to slide down just to unlock, which is a significant problem on my conclusion and it will be the fastest method to reach 300,000 actuation lifespan as referenced by Xiaomi.
Mi MIX 3 Battery and Benchmark
Putting a 3200mAh inside a brute is a considerable amount insufficient in the event that you ask me, I can surely see the drain of the battery dependent on day by day usage and its not by any stretch of the imagination something nice for this phone.
The Mi MIX 3 supports the Qualcomm Quick charge 4.0 and it takes roughly 59 minutes as I charged the phone from 22% to 100% dependent on watchful timing. Im happy that they supplied a Quick Charge 3.0 charger this time around as it has been the pattern with different manufacturers also.
Remote 10W charger was supplied yet its truly moderate, as I accomplished better speed on a quick remote charger likewise sold by Xiaomi. We recorded a 10 hour 54 minutes endurance test Mi MIX 8 8GB/128GB version under the PC Mark battery stretch test. In the event that these statistics are valid on a typical every day utilize, it’s extremely a decent sign for the said smartphone.
Mi MIX 3, Powerful Bezeless Slider
Since Xiaomi has stunned the world with its idea phone being released amid the Mi MIX and now the powerful Mi MIX 3, everybody is bouncing into the bandwagon to get their hands on the most recent smartphone by the Chinese smartphone manufacturer giant.
The Mi MIX 3 did really return Xiaomi to the battlefield with a magnificent 93.4% Screen to Body Ratio and its going to be one of the primary factor for me leaving the Mi 8 Explorer behind.
By and large, the Mi MIX 3 is quite great to utilize, Xiaomi listened to fans and improved on the new design of this new idea phone particularly on the awkward inverted Selfie Camera.
The heavier weight from 189 grams to 218 grams was one of the factor which I need to accept with a substantial hand while using the phone. This phone will put Xiaomi once more into battlefield with this marvelous release.
The 6GB/128GB variation retails for 3299 RMB, 8GB/128GB retails for 3599RMB and the 8GB/256GB Ceramic variation retails at 3999 RMB.
