The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is the phone to buy if you like to watch movies and TV episodes on your way to work.

Mi MIX 3 delivers excellent results for flash and bokeh, thanks to the built-in selfie light and depth-sensing second sensor. Other attributes such as face exposure, color, and detail are also impressive, and thanks to generally good skin tone rendering, the Mi MIX 3 ranks high in our database of fr...

It looks gorgeous, the full screen experience is something really cool, the gesture navigation is among the best we’ve used and it’s a joy just navigation around, plus you have plentiful storage on board.

Xiaomi has created the most compelling phone in their lineup, with an incredible price that provides the absolute best value at this price range, and a design that’s worthy of the Mi MIX name. The Mi MIX 3 appears to complete the projected vision of the original Mi MIX from 2 years ago, creating a bezel-less experience without sacrificing user experience in any meaningful way. With the best version of MIUI yet, a sleek and rich experience that translates across all facets of the phone, and the most stellar camera Xiaomi has ever put on a phone, the Mi MIX 3 is among the single best affordably-priced flagship phones to buy at this time in early 2019.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is the phone to buy if you like to watch movies and TV episodes on your way to work. Its screen slider gets rid of the annoyances of notches and punch hole displays, letting you watch cinematic odysseys as intended: on a 6.4in screen. OK, so phones aren’t ideal for movie-watching, but you won’t find much better at the price. It also has the power, storage and versatile cameras needed to let the Mi Mix 3 compete with more expensive phones. And it also gets wireless charging, missing from the OnePlus and Honor rivals.

An elegant and powerful device

from AndroidPIT

Mi MIX 3 is not unbeatable, especially if we look at the individual specifications. However, it is still one of the most complete devices I've tried. For the price, it's a great deal and I will not tire of recommending it to those who are looking for an all-screen flagship that's powerful, elegant and affordable.

The slider phone is back for the future

from Pocket-lint

This phone is different; it's interesting, powerful and offers a distinctive, nearly bezel-free design with great screen quality. You get a lot of phone for your money, although it's hard to recommend above and beyond some more conventional rivals, as its slider mechanism doesn't really add that much and the selfie camera quality is poor.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is a triumph of the modern mobile age, bringing a true full-coverage frontside display to the party, hiding its unnecessary frontside cameras in the process. Those users with absolutely no need for a frontside camera might have to wait another generation before the camera’s removed entirely – but for now, this is the most ideal solution.

A very solid device worth having and a needed break of those notched smartphones

Today the Mix 3 is one of the best smartphones you can get if you want a unique, no-nonsense experience, and it's rather cheap at that. The cutout-free AMOLED screen is great, the performance is flagship worthy and will continue to be for at least one or two years, the camera is great, too, and the battery life turned out pretty good.

The slider phone that shows how it should be done

In other respects Mi Mix 3 is not a huge upgrade over the 2S, and actually loses some of its bling over its predecessor with the absence of its 18K gold camera surround. But it's still a great phone - fast, stylish, feature-packed and available at an incredible price - and it's astonishing to see just how far the original full-display phone has come. Soon it will also be one of the first 5G phones in the world.
