Mi Max 3 The 6.9-inch Phone With 5,500mAh Battery

Gone were the days that we wanted a small and compact phone to tuck into our tiny pockets. Big is  the way to go right now as more and more smartphones are blurring the lines between a phone and a tablet-a grey area which of course gives rise to phablet. Introducing Mi Max 3-the smartphone with a humongous 6.9-inch display. So yeah...despite the tablet-like display, Mi Max 3 is still being considered as a relatively pocket-able smartphone.

Mi Max 3 is really huge but you can still get a good grip. :)

When you hold Mi Max 3 in your hands, you will surely notice how big the display is. Mi Max 3 sports a glorious 6.9-inch Full HD+ display at a resolution of 2160 x 1080. With a screen ratio of 18:9, Mi Max 3 is actually skinnier than its predecessor (Mi Max 2) thanks to its narrower bezels. It actually resembles Redmi Note 5 but with a more refined metal unibody which exudes a lot of class and elegance.

It looks mighty close to Redmi Note 5

Under the hood, Mi Max 3 will be powered by the commanding Snapdragon 636 processor that is complemented by up to 6GB of RAM for everything to be buttery smooth and lag-free. As for internal storage, Mi Max 3 offers up to 128GB of storage that is expandable up to 256GB via MicroSD.

Huge battery!

In terms of photography, the main rear shooters of Mi Max 3 gets a dual-camera system with AI assistance. Capture beautiful photos with its 12MP f/1.9 primary camera which comes with dual PDAF while the secondary camera is 5MP shooter for depth of field effects. Flip it to the front and Mi Max 3 has an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera with a soft LED flashlight which I think is really a bargain for its price.

Still relatively pocket-able right? :)

When it comes to entertainment, I honestly believe that Mi Max 3 ticks all the boxes. Besides the enormous 6.9-inch display for your visual indulgence, Xiaomi has also thrown in stereo speakers and even the diminishing 3.5mm audio jack. Hence with top-notch huge display and high-quality sound, you can enjoy immersive audio-visual entertainment like gaming and watching movies. Mi Max 3's big screen alone is a killer feature.

Mi Max 3 shows that big is always better. :D

Underneath the big display is an equally big 5,500mAh battery that supports fast charging via Quick Charge 3.0 through USB-C. Despite being a giant, Mi Max 3 tips the scale at only 221g and is unbelievably thin with a thickness of only 7.99mm-sleek! So do you want to own this beautiful Mi Max 3? It will be available in 2 variants: 4GB RAM + 64GB storage is priced at RM1,000 (US$250) while the higher-end 6GB RAM +128GB storage is priced at only RM1,200 (US$300). Mi Max 3 is really a steal for its price.
