Check out what happened to a Xiaomi Mi MIX when it slipped out of someone's hand

Check out what happened to a Xiaomi Mi MIX when it slipped out of someone's hand
Xiaomi delivered a megawatt jolt to the smartphone industry last week when it unveiled its 'fullscreen' concept phone, the Xiaomi Mi MIX.  With a ceramic build and a huge 6.4-inch screen that reportedly takes up 91.3% of the front of the phone, the Mi MIX doesn't appear to be built to withstand a sudden drop to the ground.

Proof of this lies in a photograph taken of a Mi MIX after the unit reportedly slipped out of someone's hand at Xiaomi's store in Hangzhou. Gravity took over, and you can see from the photo that accompanies this story just what the results were. Not only did the screen break, but the ceramic body was damaged as well. We should point out that the 6.4-inch display does not offer Corning's Gorilla Glass protection.

Buyers of the phone aren't going to want to put a case on it, as it takes away from the beauty of the device. But truthfully, putting the Mi MIX in a case could save the phone in case it drops. Another option is accident insurance, which is priced at the equivalent of $36.90.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX will have its first flash sale on Friday. Xiaomi is building just 10,000 units a month. If you do happen to pick one up, make sure that you protect it any way that you can.
