Xiaomi Mi Max will offer "full-day" battery life

Xiaomi Mi Max will offer
Tomorrow, May 10, Xiaomi will officially announce a new extra large smartphone (call it a phablet if you will): the Mi Max. Until that happens, Xiaomi today wanted to tease us - again - with a new image showing the device, mentioning that, despite its size, the Mi Max will still "feel comfortable" in hand, while providing "full-day" battery life.

Sporting a 6.44-inch display, the Mi Max will become Xiaomi's largest smartphone to date. This isn't a high-end device, but one that offers decent features at a low price. Its screen is a 1080 x 1920 pixels one, while the processor powering it is a mid-range hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650. A fingerprint scanner, a 16 MP rear camera, and a 5 MP front-facing camera will also be on board. The device's battery is a 4000 mAh one - that's a generous battery that should be able to last for at least a full day, just as Xiaomi is promising.

It's said that the Xiaomi Mi Max will be available in two variants: one with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, and another with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Both should run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Xiaomi's own MIUI 8 on top. Prices could start at around $200 (at least in China).

Most probably, the Xiaomi Mi Max won't be officially released in the US, though customers should be able to import it from various online retailers. Do you think you'd be interested in buying this device?

The Note 5 or the Galaxy S6 Edge+ would be a better buy. Decent looking phone though. I already get all day battery life with no issue.

...or an S7 Edge. After the latest Verizon update, the battery life for my Note 5 has drastically improved.

Looks like a great deal. Last xiaomi phone I've owned was the m2a. Liked what miui offered more than TouchWiz tbh.

This phone costs 200$. A 500$+ phone will obviously be better. You're just showing your Samsung fanboyism where there is no context. Note 5 is nowhere close to a full day battery life. The only 2015 devices with full day battery life are the s6 active, z5 compact and droid maxx 2. A full day battery life phone should be able to get you through a day of heavy use with LTE and navigation for hours. A note 5 would die in 4 hours at max with LTE and navigation. And that's a generous estimate. You're not supposed to use it like that everyday, but life happens on some days and your phone shouldn't give up on you, no matter the conditions.

Yep. That battery is crazy. But you know that's crazier?! My Galaxy A9 Pro battery is really hard to kill. I could browse and play games whole day continuously.

Not a 2015 phone.

I've used Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 pro and Xiaomi MI 5 64GB edition. The battery endurance on the former is phenomenal!!! I couldn't believe it at first lol, you can hit 6, 7, 8h+ SOT on it, I guess it is possible to reach 10h SoT on that thing if you know what you're doing. MI 5 is good enough in battery department too but it's not on par with Note 3 pro at all.

What do you mean by "full day battery life". I am fine with s7 edge easily runs 2 days on 1 charge.

or just buy redmi note 3... same specs, same battery, big enough but still pocketable, and cheaper.... if they can put 4000mAh battery on 5inch redmi3, they should use much bigger battery in this 6.4inch beast.. (and redmi3 isnt that much thick, its 8.5mm)

Maybe. Tempted. If specs were a tad better ..

Been using this phone for 2 months already, I have no comment about the battery life. Exceeded my expectations compared to my previous phone which is Samsung Galaxy Note 5. In terms of camera, note 5 is better. Budget wise, I'll go for this. Specifications of this phone is indeed a good buy compared to its price.
