Review of the product design of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an Xiaomi Mi Max 3, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The size of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 allows it to be carried in one hand, but depending on the user it might feel too large to hold comfortably. Furthermore, care must be taken when carrying it along with a wallet as it is relatively easy to drop if you are not paying attention.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

With the Xiaomi Mi Max 3, it is quite difficult to put it into your pocket and then take it out again. If you try to put it in your pocket, the cloth in your pocket may rip, or the phone may be damaged because of pressure.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The large size of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 makes controlling it with one hand difficult. If you have to use it with one hand, it is better to lay it in the palm of the hand rather than grabbing onto it. It isn't difficult once you get used to it, but as this grip is fairly unstable care must be taken not to drop it inadvertently.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 feels too heavy to operate with one hand, so the device wouldn't be a good choice even if you are just going to use it for a short period of time. We suggest that you hold it tightly with both hands as it may hurt your hands if you use it with just one hand for an extended period of time.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

When using the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 with just one hand, it is quite difficult to press the button on the screen edge. We suggest you operate the device with both your hands rather than pushing your luck with just one hand.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons on the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 are displayed quite large. Because of this, it is difficult to press something by mistake and it feels very easy to use. Even with games that use small buttons, it's difficult to press something by mistake making it very easy to play.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

It is difficult to type with one hand using theXiaomi Mi Max 3. If you try too hard to type, the hand you hold the phone with may slip and you may end up dropping the device. As such, we suggest you type with both your hands on the phone.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

I think it is easy to use the buttons on the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 as they are displayed in large sizes. However, it is difficult not to make typos when typing at high speeds. I don't think you will feel it difficult to type if you are careful when typing.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

Because the display of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is much larger than ordinary phones, characters are displayed quite large. Therefore, it is suitable for reading long bodies of text and exchanging long messages while doing research.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.

Ease of writing sentences

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 has enough screen space even when typing and the screen is hidden by the on screen keyboard. Because the sentences being typed can be seen clearly, the phone's screen size makes it suitable for typing and editing large bodies of text such as office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

If it is just SNS such as Facebook and Instagram, and some internet searches, the performance is enough. As a result, you will hardly ever find yourself frustrated or annoyed when using this phone.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

Even if you start multiple apps at the same time or switch between apps frequently, you will have smooth performance. It can be said that the performance is more than enough if you just do research and SNS.

The camera of the Xiaomi Mi Max 3

The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 has a back camera with 12 MP.The front camera has 8 MP.Its rear camera has slightly better performance compared to normal smart phones. While there are times when I feel it is lacking, it is able to take pictures with satisfactory quality almost all the time.The front camera performance is also roughly the same as a standard smartphone. The image quality for longer distance photography is less than satisfactory, but on the whole, there are no issues with short distance photos.
