A Massive Entertainment Package. 5/5
The real winner.
Many might be apprehensive of using a 6.44 inch smartphone but wait a minute. Read my review and then decide.
I will make it easy for you to decide..
Screen- 6.44 inches, Full HD (1080p), with Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
RAM- 4 GB.
Internal memory- 64 GB (54 GB was free at the time of first boot).
Processor- Snapdragon 625, 2.0 Ghz.
Sensors- Fingerprint, IR Blaster, Gyro etc.
Speakers- Dual- One at top and one at bottom. (Sound is crisp and clear).
Camera- 12 MP rear and 5 MP Front.
Camera lens- Sony IMX 386 (same as MI6).
Android-7.1.1 Nougat, running on MIUI 8.5.
If I missed something, you please rectify.
The first and best part is that with 6.44 inches it never feels like one. So, slim and well designed it is, that I am using it quite comfortably since last 2 days.
Of course it is hard to believe but it is really very well designed. Despite of 5,300 mAh battery, it is so light that you will be astonished.
This is the part for which I decided to go for it. I tested the Snapdragon 625 and it is worth. Combined by 5300 mAh battery, it is gives superb backup.
I charged it on 29th July at 12 noon..Till 30th night 11 pm it was still left with 24% charge, that too after 4 to 5 hrs of gaming, continuously using WhatsApp, facebook and watching videos on facebook. And I am using it too much just to see how much power it can give.
So, you have a powerful battery that will last for 2 days with heavy usage and 3 days with moderate usage. If you are a completely insane gamer, still it will last for more than one day. So, 10/10 for battery. Besides you get quick charge facility with this. Charger is quite fast and charges this massive battery of 5300 mAh in just about 2 to 2.5 hours.
Camera is the part on which Xiaomi has worked this time. At daytime it clicks really good pictures. I clicked some photos during day time and it came out very good that was not expected from a Xiaomi device. The shutter is quite fast and sensors are good. So, images come out well detailed.
Selfie camera is quite OK...here, it could have been made better. Not the best, still gives good pictures. But altogether front camera is ok.
It is having all the sensors including IR Blaster. Gyro is there. You have to download a VR App, purchase a VR glass and enjoy VR Videos.
Fingerprint works very smooth.
Screen is another part where it gives you worth it's price. Very bright and clear. Sunlight legibility is very good and with 6.44 inches watching videos, movies, gaming is like out of the world. You will not get anything better.
Voice clarity is good all the times and the speaker gives good sound. Also, the signal strength is very good.
As it is light and well designed, I didn't feel uncomfortable in holding it to my ears for 29 to 30 minutes of calling.
Loud and clear. With dual Stereo Speakers you will love to listen songs, watch videos, movies etc. Just add any VR app and you will love to watch big screen videos.
It's a very good deal as it gives you all the things in one package at resonable price.
It has got everything at such price. It's only drawback (if you really believe it is a drawback) is it's screen size. With 6.44 inches it is not that easy to handle in one hand. But believe me Xiaomi has tried and succeeded in making it as easy as possible to use it, by too good design. I am using it and will use it as my primary device. With so many good features, the screen size will not matter much for me. It's up to you to decide.
Performance and camera is superior to Redmi Note 4. Of course, it is also having Snapdragon 625 chip but I feel in this device Xiaomi has worked more on software optimisation and given even better performance. Also, Camera sensors are the best in a Xiaomi device till date.
So, if you can adjust with big screen, this smartphone or phablet will give you the best performance and functionalities. If you watch lot of videos, movies and game a lot then this is the one for you.
