Set aside the sales data, Xiaomi should have the highest reputation among Chinese phone brands. Although Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus were not fond by Mi fans, Mi Note 2 and Mi Mix turned doubts into compliments. As a concept phone, Mi Mix was highly expected since announcement.
In fact, strictly speaking Mi MIX as a concept mobile phone is not appropriate, it’s more like the Huawei Mate 9 Porsche Design, using luxurious materials and high-end design to enhance the brand image.
Xiaomi didn’t put the significant Mi logo on MIX as it did on other phones, just a line of golden script says it’s from Xiaomi. The full-ceramic body looks very special and has a reflect like a dark mercury texture.
But Xiaomi didn’t build a special MIUI for Mi Mix.
However, although Mi Mix looks great, it’s not as comfortable as it should be.
Mi is big and heavy, makes it heavy to carry.
Also the sound quality has not reached a high-end mobile phone should be the level. You need to press hard to your ears in order to sound clearly.
The 16-megapixel camera has a very short shutter speed, but its white balance performance is poor. Even in a light room, I have to keep absolute stability and press the shutter 3 times before I can get a clear picture.
To sum up, as a pursuit of new technology and design, Mi Mix is fully qualified. But its daily experience is a complete failure – because it just uncomfortable to use.
