Xiaomi Mi Mix Review- What’s in the box

The packaging of Mi MIX is nothing you’ve seen before. You receive a bulky, black box with a black cover that has the 128GB sign on one side Xiaomi Mi Mix Review (designating the version you get) and a sticker with basic specifications at the bottom. The 256GB version has a gold sign on top of the lid, which reads “MIX designed by MI”. When you take off the cover, you get access to the box itself. Its lid has the MI logo in black debossed on it and is attached to one side Xiaomi Mi Mix Review by a magnet. When you open it, you unveil the top level compartment with the smartphone lying in it. Then the box just unfolds in front of your eyes, revealing the other two compartments below. The design of the box and accessories follows the minimalist design of the smartphone.

The second compartment contains a European ecco leather case Xiaomi Mi Mix Review for protecting the device’s back and sides if dropped. Each case is handmade – individually cut, ironed, and bound by highly skilled craftsmen. The third one is where the user manual, warranty card and SIM tray pin are placed together with a USB to USB Type-C 3.0 cable and a charger – all this packaged in Xiaomi Mi Mix Review two separate small boxes. The power adapter is typical for Xiaomi – it has two flat pins and no grounding area. This is the so called US NEMA-1 wall plug standard and it is used in the US, Canada and some Latin American countries. If you reside outside these places, you will most probably need an adapter.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Review- Design, build and controls

It is not possible to discuss the design of an innovative gadget without explaining the design philosophy, intertwined in every Xiaomi Mi Mix Review small detail of the device. Created by French designer Philippe Starck, Mi MIX personifies his philosophy of “Less material, more humanity”. Put in simpler words, this is minimalism put in service to the people. It is not the device that’s important, but its ability to help you see the world the way that it is. That has lead to creating a smartphone with an edge-to-edge display, which is the main focus Xiaomi Mi Mix Review of Starck’s design. To support this, in a video made by Xiaomi, the designer says: “We don’t want pollution, we just want the image,” and then adds, “It’s the content that’s important”, “I want to see the person I love, nothing else.” A second major Xiaomi Mi Mix Review point of focus for the design is the material used for the smartphone. Starck says that “Ceramics is magic Poetry. It’s incredibly strong, and it’s warm. It’s the same structure as jade.” Ceramics has been described by him as being “the oldest and most contemporary of materials”, which, again, makes a parallel with the human aspect of design.


So let’s get a bit deeper into those design details. For starters, this is the first smartphone with, let’s say, an all-ceramic body. The back plate, frame, buttons and even some internals Xiaomi Mi Mix Review  are ceramic. The end result is achieved after the high-grade micro-crystalline zirconia ceramic material has undergone a 7-day, 1500 ℃ high-temperature calcination process, which turns it into a deep black and a very hard ceramic, with a hardness close to that of sapphire. More specifically, this material starts to be scratched at 8.5H from the MoHs scale for glass hardness, which is truly impressive! 10H is the highest point and corresponds to the hardness of diamonds. It appears that not only the back, but the frame, buttons and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor are ceramic with such a level of hardness. The lens of the primary shooter is protected by a special glass, which cannot Xiaomi Mi Mix Review get scratched easily, too. All this means that everyday objects cannot harm the Mi MIX in any way. However, the ceramic material is quite fragile and does not need a lot in order to crack. That’s why working with this material during production is risky – it is extremely difficult to produce large quantities without losses (units that crack during production). This is one of the reasons why Mi MIX is produced in limited numbers. The company does have experience with this material from the production of the Mi 5 Ceramic Edition, so this is a plus. In addition, ceramic fragility brings a risk for the smartphone to break down, if accidentally dropped Xiaomi Mi Mix Review even not from very high. What’s worse is that the edge-to-edge display can get easily cracked, too, due to the lack of protection/isolation between the screen and the ceramic frame. We think that using the leather case for the device is a must, if you want to be on the safe side. Ceramic is also very glossy, glossier than glass covers and just as them – prone to being smudged with fingerprints. Another interesting design and build feature of this device is that the frame and back Xiaomi Mi Mix Review use the mortise and tenon joint style of fitting, which is thousands-of-years old and has been used not only in Asia, but also in all parts of the world mainly by woodworkers.
Placing a 6.4-inch display that spans from edge to edge (left, top and right) in a frame that is more suited for a 5.5-inch smartphone Xiaomi Mi Mix Review opens a number of issues, which Xiaomi has cleverly solved. It has, actually, made the radical design decision to get rid of the whole top part and internals that are found in all smartphones today. This includes the earpiece, front camera and proximity sensor. Let’s start with the earpiece. Mi MIX is equipped with a cantilever piezoelectric ceramics acoustic technology, which replaces the traditional earpiece/speaker in a smartphone. How does it work? You receive a call and you pick up. The piezoelectric ceramic component converts the electric signal into Xiaomi Mi Mix Review mechanical energy. One thing should be noted though – the sound can be heard from any place on the frame Xiaomi Mi Mix Review  and from the back of the device (the top area). This means that the sound does not have the traditional direction it receives from a typical speaker. We have tested whether someone may eavesdrop your conversations in a quiet and Xiaomi Mi Mix Review normally noisy environment and this is further discussed in the networks and call quality section of this review. This generates vibrations resonating in the frame of the phone, which are then converted into sound waves. The cantilever is attached to this component and serves as a booster for the vibrations. Hence, you’re able to hear the caller.
A second innovative solution in this device is the use of a built-in ultrasonic proximity sensor. Traditional proximity sensors used in Xiaomi Mi Mix Review smartphones are optical infrared hardware ones placed above the display. If Xiaomi has decided to keep it, it wouldn’t have been able to extend the display to the top edge, so finding a solution has become a must. The company has been cooperating with Elliptic Labs for about an year to create a suitable solution for this issue. Mi MIX employs Elliptic Labs’ patented ultrasound proximity software called Inner Beauty. On one hand, this technology creates enough space to extend the display and to place Xiaomi Mi Mix Review behind it the cantilever piezoelectric ceramics speaker described above. On the other, the solution reduces the cost as the hardware sensor is removed. Just like in ceramics, Xiaomi has a previous experience with Xiaomi Mi Mix Review ultrasonic technology. If you remember, the company uses an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in the Mi 5s. It looks like ultrasonic technology will find even more practical applications in mobile devices. It creates high-frequency waves, which are called ultrasonic because they are beyond the limit of human hearing, which Xiaomi Mi Mix Review normally is in the 20Hz-20KHz range. These are mechanical vibrations that can be used to measure thickness, detect flaws in materials, etc. In this particular case, these waves are able to flawlessly detect your face or any other obstacle in front of the device and make the smartphone react accordingly. Moreover, it provides better sensitivity and solves issues that are typical for hardware sensors such as their unreliability when operating in certain weather conditions, for example.
The third design issue that has found a corresponding solution is the placement of the front camera. Xiaomi has re-designed a camera Xiaomi Mi Mix Review module to make it 50% smaller than the traditional one and has placed it at the bottom right corner of the smartphone below the display. It is located in the Xiaomi Mi Mix Review center of the chin, right below the screen. With the chin being already occupied, Xiaomi has opted for on-screen navigation, which is complemented by the Quick Ball – a floating dot that can serve as a navigation tool as well. The on-screen navigation can be managed from the corresponding menu in the Additional Settings. We must say that this is the first on-screen navigation, which we like. It is cleverly Xiaomi Mi Mix Review designed and in no way interferes with your interaction with the device. Actually, we think that Xiaomi have opted for the non-standard vertical resolution of 2040 pixels, simply to preserve the original 1920 pixels for the content and the rest of Xiaomi Mi Mix Review 120 pixels to be used for the software navigation bar. The rest of the controls are quite traditional. The dual-SIM tray is positioned in the upper area of the left frame. The volume and power buttons, which are ceramic, are positioned on the right frame. The top frame houses a 3.5 mm jack, while the bottom one features symmetrical speaker grilles on both sides of a USB Type-C 3.0 port. The left one is for the microphone, which faces only one of the holes, and the right one is for the Xiaomi Mi Mix Review speaker itself. On the back of the device, centrally along the vertical you will see the primary camera, covered by protective glass with the dual-tone LED flash to its right, and the ceramic, ultrasonic fingerprint sensor below it. Still, it is one of the lightest smartphones in its size class. In terms of width and height, which measure 81.9 mm and 158.8 mm, respectively, this is the most compact device among those with a 6-inch display or larger. If you don’t find it convenient to make Xiaomi Mi Mix Review selfies this way, simply turn the phone upside down. The ambient light sensor has found a non-traditional place, too.  Then the “MIX designed by MI” sign follows. The smartphone is only 7.9 mm thin, which is quite impressive having in mind its solid build and large battery (4400 mAh). It is on the heavier side Xiaomi Mi Mix Review though (209 grams), but one hand this is expected due to the large battery and big display, on the other, this means that nothing has been spared in terms of components and material quality.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Review– Battery

The Security app is an integral part of MIUI 8. One of its six main services is the Battery & performance one. It provides you with tools to Xiaomi Mi Mix Review analyze your battery, solve the issues (if such are found), and suggests further improvements. There’s a Battery Saver on board, which is switched off by default and combined with scheduling options. Schedule power on & off is present, too. There are special settings for additional power saving such as Xiaomi Mi Mix Review options to turn off mobile data and/or clear cache when the device is locked. You can also opt in to receive notifications for battery drain and heating as well as choose the type of the battery indicator. You can monitor which apps and hardware parts consume the most power and act accordingly. You can also manage the battery Xiaomi Mi Mix Review usage for individual apps.


Xiaomi Mi MIX is equipped with a 4400 mAh battery (non-removable). Its model is BDMC. The accumulator is coupled with the Quick Charge Xiaomi Mi Mix Review 3.0 technology and arrives with a 5V/2.5A; 9V/2A; 12V/1.5A fast charger. Below you see a graph that shows the charging time (0-100%) and battery temperature from the beginning to the end of the process. Charging started steadily with a rate of 1% per minute and continued like this till the battery Xiaomi Mi Mix Review reached 40% of its capacity after 40 minutes. Then the speed increase, but only very slightly, so the following 40% needed 35 minutes. After that the charging speed decreased significantly – 13 minutes from 80% to 90%, and the last 10% to full capacity needed 38 minutes to complete. The total charging time was 2 hours Xiaomi Mi Mix Review and 5 minutes. At the same time, the temperature of the battery changed proportionally. It started from 30°C and immediately reached 34°C. At 40% of the capacity the battery temperature measured 41°C and continued rising to 43°C (at 70% of the charge). After that point, when the charging speed started slowing Xiaomi Mi Mix Review down, the temperature started decreasing too. When the process was completed, the battery temperature measured 29°C.Results from the PCMark Work 2.0 battery life test will be published very soon. The test is performed in accordance with Futuremark’s recommendation of calibrating the display’s brightness to 200 cd/sq.m.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Review– Display

After the Sharp Aquos Crystal, Mi MIX is the second officially released smartphone that has a three-sided bezel-less display. Bezel-less in this case means that the display is edge-to-edge, or frame-to-frame. The frames are Xiaomi Mi Mix Review very thin, indeed. However the more important fact is that Xiaomi has employed a number of clever innovations and design solutions that actually elevate the idea of a device with such a display to a whole new level. Probably it won’t come Xiaomi Mi Mix Review as a surprise to you that precisely Sharp is the manufacturer of the display panel used in the Mi MIX. Aida64 reveals that this is a Sharp FTE716 DSI (Display Serial Interface) panel. Xiaomi has customized it by creating an unusual Xiaomi Mi Mix Review aspect ratio (17:9) and unusual resolution (1080 x 2040) along with making the panel corners rounded! Yep, this smartphone is the first in the market with rounded corners, which actually make getting rid of the bezels much easier and are in unison with the rounded frame corners. As long as it concerns glass protection, such is not specified, but the display starts to scratch at 6H from MoHs scale of glass hardness with more serious marks at 7H, which means it is as protected as any other flagship Xiaomi Mi Mix Review in the market today – iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy Edge 7, for example. The diagonal size is 6.4 inches and the display takes up 91.3% of the total front surface of the device. To those of you who Xiaomi Mi Mix Review have concerns about accidental touch input, we must say that handling the Mi MIX is in no way different than that of any other smartphone. The screen rejects any touch that is not made by a fingertip. The only area that does not have accidental touch rejection area is the upper edge. Have this in mind, if you rotate the Xiaomi Mi Mix Review phone upside down to take selfies or if you watch videos/play games in a landscape position.

The display has a very good peak brightness, which corresponds to the officially specified one: 500 cd/sq.m. This might not provide best viewing experience under direct sunlight, but is bright enough. More importantly, this is one of the rare display panels that has a very even brightness distribution. This means that the white values of different areas of the display (not only the center) at one and the same brightness level do not differ a lot. The black values are fine, and though the contrast ratio is not as high as the one of the Mi 5s, for example, Mi MIX shows a very good contrast ratio of 1600:1 – higher than the one specified. Another tell-tale sign for a quality display is the relatively even temperature of the white point at the different brightness levels. In this case, it varies with only a little from 7030 K to 7367 K, which is an excellent measure. This is also a normal value for a screen of a mobile device.

Brightness White luminance Black luminance Contrast Color temperature
100 % 507.669 cd/m2 0.335 cd/m2 1515 7367 K
75 % 281.236 cd/m2 0.171 cd/m2 1645 7211 K
50 % 147.898 cd/m2 0.092 cd/m2 1608 7127 K
25 % 60.419 cd/m2 0.037 cd/m2 1633 7045 K
0 % 6.275 cd/m2 0.000 cd/m2 7030 K

The display panel has a striped sub-pixel geometry. It covers 94% of the NTSC color space with the deviations in the green area being more significant than those of the red and blue one. In case you need to change the Xiaomi Mi Mix Review color temperature (reading mode), contrast and/or saturation you can do so from the Display menu in the Settings. The viewing angles are excellent – the colors are preserved and there’s only a minimal loss in brightness, if you look at the display Xiaomi Mi Mix Review from an angle. Our measurements show that the display panel used for the Mi MIX is of high quality. The overall impression of the display is that a 1080p resolution on a 6.4-inch diagonal size is more than enough. The unit is very responsive Xiaomi Mi Mix Review and super convenient for reading and browsing due to its size.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Review– Cameras

Тhe camera app is a typical MIUI 8 one. The home screen contains a large circular shutter button, with a smaller circle to its left that leads to the list of photos, and another one to the right that Xiaomi Mi Mix Review switches to video mode. Above it a shortcut to the Modes is positioned with a shortcut to the filters to its right. At the upper left corner of the home screen of the app are the flash options and at the right one – the HDR settings. The 10 modes include panorama, timer, audio, manual, straighten, beautify, HHT, tilt-shift, GroupShot, and Square. The manual mode is the most interesting one and allows you to manually adjust the focus, exposure time, white balance and ISO. The video settings of the rear camera include image Xiaomi Mi Mix Review capturing while shooting, focus mode, time laps interval, image stabilization. For the front camera there is a mirror function, triggered when a face is detected. Of course, for any of these you can set picture/video quality, toggle camera sounds and location info saving, etc. The app offers separate Xiaomi Mi Mix Review settings for the rear camera in photo and video mode, and separate settings for the front camera in photo mode. Some of the most distinctive options of the rear camera are the QR scanner, enhance lowlight photos automatically, flash settings, saturation, contrast, sharpness, etc.


The camera app in MIUI 8 has a standard set of editing options once after you take a photo. In our review unit the first option is Xiaomi Mi Mix Review to apply a filter. The second is to adjust the frame. The third allows you to enhance the photo by tweaking the sharpness, brightness, contrast, and saturation. The fourth is to doodle the image with several tools. In the original Chinese version there are Xiaomi Mi Mix Review no enhancement options, but adding stickers. You can share or delete a photo, set it as a wallpaper or a contact photo, insert it in a slideshow or add it to an album and receive more information about the file itself with the photo’s properties.

 Xiaomi Mi Mix Review– Primary camera

Mi MIX features a 16-megapixel rear camera equipped with an OmniVision OV16880 PureCel sensor with a 4.26 mm  Xiaomi Mi Mix Review focal length. The sensor’s size is 1/3.06″, while the pixel size is 1 μm. The lens has an f/2.0 aperture. The camera makes photos with a resolution of 4608 x 3456 pixels and is capable of shooting 4K video (3840 x 2160) at 30 fps and 720p video at 120 fps. The panoramas are with a resolution of 7232 x 1728 pixels. The shooter’s work is aided by phase-detection auto-focus and dual-tone LED flash. Due to the Xiaomi Mi Mix Review second-generation ISP from Qualcomm, which is on board, the camera also employs a dark light enhancement technology. LeEco Le 2 (X620) uses the same camera sensor, so you can compare how both devices’ cameras perform.

The front facing camera’s sensor is supplied by OmniVision as well. It is a 5-megapixel one, model OV5675. It has 1.12 μm pixel size and a 4.6 mm focal length. The lens is with an f/2.2 aperture. The photos are with a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels. The shooter can record FHD videos at 30 fps.

 Xiaomi Mi Mix Review– Networks, calls and connectivity

Xiaomi Mi MIX has a dual nano-SIM card tray with both cards working in a dual SIM standby mode. Similar to other Xiaomi Mi Mix Review flagship smartphones by the company, this model supports many network bands, including 2G GSM (850, 900, 180, 1900 MHz), 2.5G
CDMA (800 MHz), 3G TD-SCDMA (1880-1920, 2010-2025 MHz), 3G UMTS (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz), 4G FDD-LTE (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1800, 1900, 2100, 2600 MHz), and 4H TDD-LTE (1900, 2300, 2500, 2600 MHz). LTE downlink and uplink speeds are Cat. 12 ones. The cantilever piezoelectric ceramic speaker that replaced the traditional earpiece is very loud at its maximum volume and we could even feel the vibrations. The sound coming from it at normal Xiaomi Mi Mix Review volume levels is fine. It sounds a bit muffed compared to a standard earpiece, but is no less distinct. So you won’t have any issues with making  Xiaomi Mi Mix Review phone calls. VoLTE is supported, too, along with full NFC functionality – read, write, card emulation, P2P, Mi Pay ready. The device supports dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with MU-MiMO, 802.11n 5GHz, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Display, and Bluetooth 4.2. It is equipped with a USB Type-C 3.0 that supports OTG and a 3.5 mm jack. All these connectivity options and features work fine. Finally, the smartphone packs SAP’s GPS technology and supports not only GPS, but also Glonass and BeiDou. It managed to detect satellites from all three systems quickly and  Xiaomi Mi Mix Review with an excellent accuracy.

Audio

The Music app in MIUI 8 has many features and in the Chinese version, similar to the Themes app, it provides access to tons of Xiaomi Mi Mix Review online content and even allows you to stream music. However, the one in our review unit is stripped off these services and provides only the offline features, in English. There are additional tabs that group your audio files according to the file Xiaomi Mi Mix Review name, the name of the album and artist, etc. When you tap on the minimized player, it will expand to full screen with options for opening the Headphones & audio effects settings. Besides all else (headphones button adjustment, choosing headphone Xiaomi Mi Mix Review type, switching the equalizer on/off, etc.) you can also switch on the HD Audio effects. There’s something like a main screen of the app, which includes a folder Xiaomi Mi Mix Review for offline content and a favorites one, too. Below them appear any playlist you might create and at the bottom you will see the player itself in minimized view.


The only known special audio feature of Mi MIX is that the smartphone offers high-resolution audio – 192 kHz / 24 bit. Mi MIX shows audio results that are comparable to those of Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus. It excels in Xiaomi Mi Mix Review frequency response only and is average in THD + Noise. The rest of the parameters are evaluated as being Very good and so is the final result. The results in the table below refer to the audio system of the device and reflect the Xiaomi Mi Mix Review audio quality when using ear-/headphones. The results from this test do not take into account the speaker. In the case of Mi MIX, the latter provides better Xiaomi Mi Mix Review sound than the average smartphone speaker, but this is just a subjective opinion. Actually, the results are so similar that they pinpoint to the fact that one and the same hardware has been Xiaomi Mi Mix Review used in all three smartphone. This is just an assumption, of course. As usual, we perform our audio test by using the TASCAM US-2×2 audio interface and the RightMark Audio Analyzer software. All audio enhancement features are disabled.

Performance

Mi MIX relies on the 64-bit Snapdragon 821 MSM8996 Pro in its top variant (2.35GHz) to skyrocket it to the top of the benchmark charts. This is the current most powerful system-on-chip on the market. Built after the 14nm Xiaomi Mi Mix Review process, it increases performance by 10% in comparison to the Snapdragon 820. Logically, its benchmark results are on par with those of Mi 5s Plus as this model is also based on the 2.35GHz variant of the chipset. With an AnTuTu result of 162521 points, the Mi MIX proves to be the most powerful smartphone (according to this test), we’ve reviewed Xiaomi Mi Mix Review so far. It is followed closely by the Mi 5s Plus, which has almost the same result. The rest of the benchmark tests also demonstrate the model’s superiority. It retains the CPU architecture comprising of four custom Kryo cores, which, however, are clocked at a higher rate. To be more exact, the CPU includes two 2.35 Kryo cores and another pair of the same clocked at 2GHz. The graphics depend on Xiaomi Mi Mix Review an Adreno 530 GPU clocked at 653MHz, which increases performance by 5% compared to the same GPU in Snapdragon 820. Performance and battery life Xiaomi Mi Mix Review are further improved by the presence of the new Qualcomm Hexagon 680 DSP. Among all else, Snapdragon 821 MSM8996 Pro supports VR headsets, too. We have already managed to test it on the Mi 5s Plus and the Mi 5s.


Even in PCMark and 3DMark tests, which are one of the most serious ones, Mi MIX shows enviable results. We are reviewing the 4/128GB version of the model. There’s a 6/256GB variant, called “Exclusive Edtion” because the rings of the rear camera and the fingerprint sensor are made of 18K gold. The RAM is Xiaomi Mi Mix Review double-channel, LPDDR4 clocked at 1866MHz and the internal memory is the UFS 2.0 type one, which is the current fastest in the market. Literally, you cannot feel the phone struggle with none of the apps and games you Xiaomi Mi Mix Review though at it. The RAM is more than enough and the chipset is a real beast. The internal storage is quite generous, no expansion available. Accuracy is fine. It is a bit trickier to adjust your finger, if you use the protective case and in those cases recognition Xiaomi Mi Mix Review might fail more often due to poor finger positioning. Of 128GB on board, 120GB are available to the user. Reading and writing speeds from/to the memory are Xiaomi Mi Mix Review super fast and correspond to its type. There’s a plethora of sensors on board, including Elliptic Labs’ proximity sensor along with an accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, barometer, Hall sensor and of course – an ultrasonic fingerprint one made by Fingerprint Cards (FPC1235). It actually demonstrated being quite Xiaomi Mi Mix Review sensitive, because it managed to detect a fingerprint even through the protective foil on the back with which the device arrived.
