The day has come: it is already among us the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 (not MIX). The third generation of the largest Xiaomi device range by far. And this time is even greater, since we do not exaggerate when we say that the Chinese manufacturer It has gone from thread to size. This phone has set a new screen record, although in the specifications we see a mid-range manual.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2: 6.44-inch screen, 5,300 mAh and a large camera
The most prominent Chinese brand has just introduced a giant. This is the new Xiaomi Mi Max 2, the largest phone of Xiaomi.

Its great assets: size and battery
Today's mobiles must be sold in some way. Each device must be marketed with an idea that attracts a specific audience, and thus be able to decide to buy it. In the case of Xiaomi devices it is usually a question of value for money. But here 2 more are added: a very generous battery But a huge screen.
We have a monstrous panel 6.99 inches in 18: 9 IPS ratio. In the physical section we will not waste too much time, since it is not far from its range brothers such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 or the Xiaomi Redmi 6. Metal construction and a double camera arranged in a vertical format.
As for processor we have Qualcomm, specifically the Snapdragon 636 next to the classic combinations of RAM of 3, 4 or 6. In storage we start from 64 GB, reaching 128. The mother of the lamb is in its autonomy, having an impressive drums 5400 mAh With fast charging and USB-C. We will have to see how the charger behaves by charging this animated battery.
In addition this terminal can be used as an external battery for other mobiles and it is that with the amperage that it handles we can save more than one family member or friend from a hurry.
Although the screen is huge and the device also (measures more than 17 centimeters high and weighs more than 200 grams), this does not mean that autonomy is more than good. If something characterizes Xiaomi is that its batteries are more than incredible, and this is the most clamorous case. If you were looking for a battery and a good screen size, do not hesitate: this is your device.
For the rest it is one more Xiaomi
Although these details make the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 a wonder difficult to compare, we know how Xiaomi spends them and in the rest of the specifications it does not change much compared to its price partners. We have a double camera, 12 + 5 Mpx, Android 8.1 Oreo with MIUI 10 and also a rear fingerprint reader, along with the necessary wireless connections.
This generates a doubt. Yes, we have an impressive screen, size and battery, but are enough incentives to buy it? Will the Xiaomi boys with the size have passed? Part of the criticism of the Mi Max 2 was that it was very easy to carry the phone. In this case we are not only the same, but worse. Although of course, there is no doubt that whoever wants the Mi Max 3 knows what it entails.
For the rest, we have a mid-range manual. We start with Android 8.1 Oreo and MIUI 10, the new version of the Xiaomi system. Thanks to this, we will have more than enough autonomy and performance for any standard user. Not for nothing MIUI boasts its energy efficiency, being one of its most important assets for purchase.
