The Chinese manufacturer wants this smartphone.to look futuristic. It has a 6.4 inch screen that occupies mostly the entire face of the phone. The buttons are now placed on the screen. The material used is sturdy and scratch resistant. It has it’s own weaknesses too. It has only one speaker and it is used to play both music and video. The Xiao Mi Mix Smartphone has placed a cantilever piezoelectric actuator. It makes the phone’s body throb when it sounds. The camera is not so good. You can get this phone only in China. These phones are quite limited. There is not so many parts that are available. The model mentioned here is the lower priced smartphone. It cost 3,499 yuan equivalent to almost $510. There is a more expensive model and it comes with an 18 carat gold embossing. it comes with a 6GB BRAM instead of 4GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage instead of the 128 GB storage of the base model. This model will cost 4,000 yuan. If you turn it into dollars the Xiao Mi Mix Smartphone will cost $600. Remember that Chines phones do not come with Google apps. You’ll have to find a way to place it there.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 with it’s Basic RAM and storage performs very well as expected. It runs smoothly. In the benchmark score for the Geekbench 4 ( single core ) it scored 1812 way above the average of it’s category level. On the Geekbench 4 ( multi-core ) it scored 3,529 above the category level. On the 3D Mark Ice Storm test the Xiao Mi Mix Smartphone scored 27,011 also above the category level. The camera needs a bit of improvement. There is no problem taking pictures during the day. It is during the night when the pictures are not good.. This is not a waterproof smartphone. Stay away from water when using it. The battery life is good for at least 17 hours. My concern is that it drains out when it is unplugged.
