Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Hands-On: The Slider Phone With 10GB of RAM


Xiaomi will never stop making smartphones and I’m pretty sure it has more following than Apple. This year, Xiaomi brought various models in the market including Redmi 7 , 7 Pro and 7 S….. Now, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is the upcoming smartphone that fits better than everything.

Apart from specifications,  Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has a full-screen notch-less display with sliding front camera. Xiaomi recently claims that pop-up camera is tested for 300,000 cycles.

The Mi Mix 3 is a fantastic device with the best hardware available, which includes Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chip (although the Snapdragon 855 is coming soon), a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED full HD + display, two 12-megapixel rear cameras with 2x optical zoom. The box even has wireless charging.

The cheapest grade of Mi Mix 3 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory is sold at an affordable price. At the same time, the cheapest version of the top model is still much cheaper than the most affordable iPhone XS Max. The difference is about $ 250.

Almost Perfect Handset

I can say that Mi Mix 3 is almost perfect. Of course, it lacks a few things, such as waterproofing, which is almost impossible to implement with a sliding mechanism. There is also no 3D face recognition, but living without these features is quite possible.

Stunning Look

It has a brilliant ceramic back panel shimmers in the light. And the smartphone is comfortable to hold. Although it is slightly heavier than the iPhone XS Max, the difference is almost imperceptible.

The 6.4-inch display is bright and colors are visible even outdoors in sunlight. Mix 3 also supports wireless charging.

Pre-Installed MIUI 10 Software

It has a pre-installed MIUI 10 that resembles iOS, but it is definitely Android. Mix 3 uses on-screen buttons by default, but you can switch them to gesture controls. The procedure is similar to iOS:

  • swipe up to exit the application;
  • slide your finger around to go back or forward;
  • swipe and hold to call all recent apps on your smartphone.

One of the major advantages of the slider mechanism is the display of a customizable quick menu. It will allow you to quickly access applications, such as a voice recorder, stopwatch or notes. It can also be used to simply take a picture from the front selfie camera.

Special Google Assistant Button

Yeah, like Google Pixel devices, Xiaomi MI MIX 3 has a special side button that supports Google Assistant. It allows you to access more features like camera, recording, etc…

Now Capture Great Shots

Xiaomi Mi 8 has great cameras, and Mix 3 uses the same camera settings to take equally good shots. Particularly pleased with the night mode of the smartphone, which takes several pictures and combines them together to obtain a bright and detailed image.

Sounds familiar? This is because it is a fashionable feature among modern smartphones. Even if the night mode is not turned on, the camera still takes good pictures in low light. The camera also copes well with daylight – on the Mix 3 screen, photos are displayed with many details and colors.

The front selfie camera has a built-in beauty mode. But you can turn it off, unlike similar features on other Chinese smartphones. It also has an optional depth sensor for shooting in portrait mode.

Battery & Performance

Well, Mi Mix 3 will have 3,200 mAh battery storage. Ofcourse, it discharges within one day, but the smartphone can easily last up to 17 hours. Games such as Asphalt 8, Marvel Strike Force, were also tested, and it turned out to be a pretty pleasant experience.

Price & Availablity

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 price in India is expected to be Rs. 34800 and may launch in September, 2019. The 128GB variant costs nearly Rs. 34800 and comes in multiple color options like Black, White.

Pros : Mi Mix 3 and its sliding mechanism with a side click are absolutely gorgeous. The camera takes great pictures, and the battery life is just fantastic.

Cons : The smartphone is not waterproof, and the front camera lacks secure 3D face recognition.


Xiaomi smartphone is almost an ideal device. The company has made it available to a large number of countries. Hope this may grab more attention this year.
