Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Screen and Appearance
On the front, the phone carries a 6.9-inch 18:9 full-screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 and a screen ratio of 85.19%. While it comes with almost the same body size, due to the full-screen technology adoption, it sports a larger display.
On the opposite side, it uses an all-metal one-piece body with a hidden nano-injection antenna that makes the phone more rugged and reliable. It also continues the thin waist design. So though it comes with a large screen, single-hand operations won’t be inconvenient for most users.
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 Battery
The second biggest selling point of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is the built-in 5500mAh battery, which makes it the largest-battery Mi phone on the market. The larger screen requires a larger battery. So with the help of this battery, the phone won’t suffer from short battery life issues. But a larger battery also requires a longer time to charge. To solve this problem, the manufacturer brought a fast charging option that supports 9V2A QC 3.0 and a built-in dual parallel charging technology. So the charging efficiency is improved a lot and the heat dissipation is more uniform.
In addition, the reverse charging function was upgraded to 5V/1.2A, which has twice the reverse charging performance of the previous generation and can be used for other electronic devices to provide fast charging. According to the official information, the Mi Max3 can charge up to 71% within 1 hour. Plus, it can last 17 hours of local video playback, 10 hours of continuous play games, or it can be used for two days in a standby mode.
At the MIUI system level, the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 also added smart sleep optimization function. The phone will establish a user model based on the usage habit through AI. Then, it will predict the user’s sleep state, deep clean up the system background process, limit unnecessary network connection, etc. This will maximize power savings during user sleep.
Xiaomi Mi max 3 Performance
Many have been waiting for a Snapdragon 710, but the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is packed with a Snapdragon 636, which uses a 14nm process node and an octa-core design with four Kryo 260 cores. At the same time, Xiaomi provides special optimization for many popular mobile games. It will intelligently identify the game team battle scene, scheduling system resources to maximize hardware performance, allowing the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 to run high-load games smoothly.
In order to ensure the large-screen game experience of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3, MIUI system has also added a series of optimization upgrades: automatically open the game toolbox when entering the game, prevent accidental touch of the keys, avoid misuse of the operation, automatic hands-free call during the game, one-button shielding push notification, etc.

In addition, the phone is equipped with a flagship closed-loop motor and Dual PD full-pixel dual-core focusing technology, which can achieve extreme speed focusing in a dark environment.
