And how does it all work? How do you think, since inside we can find here Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM? In a popular benchmark Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 scores almost 300 000 points – which shows that this phone is a monster.
I do not think that there will be a game that could pose a serious threat to it anytime soon. I could write a poem about how common apps work and how fast they run, or how pleasant it is to switch between them…
However, I am not a bard and I do not want to be called a Xiaomi fan boy, so I will limit myself to saying that the phone should fulfil expectations of the most demanding users and it is in the top tier when it comes to the efficiency. I will just mention that during an intensive work it does not heat up too much and it will not work as a hand heater in colder days.
What am I bothered with? We cannot use a microSD card. For many users 116GB from declared 128GB of internal memory – it will be enough. For me, who records a lot of videos, stores a high amount of music files and takes a lot of photos – this is a bit too few. Some files can be exported to a cloud – but I simply prefer to keep them for myself… Some help can be the USB socket that supports OTG, but this is not an ideal solution.
Just after the launch of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 there were some opinions that the battery does not have enough capacity. However, it turned out that it is not that bad. Yes, we can always benefit from a bigger battery – but the one in Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 works pretty well.
The smartphone can work for up to 2 days, a day and a half can be achieved without any effort. I did not manage to deplete the battery in one day (besides some extreme tries), and what is equally important it charges really fast.
Charging the battery in the traditional way takes a bit over an hour (the first few percent appear almost instantly), while on the wireless plate – an hour and a half. For those, who are curious – the lifespan with the display on, depending on the usage scenario – is around 6-7 hours.
