The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is an older model, having been launched in the middle of 2019.
The overall quality of this smartphone is average; since the price is even much higher than that of competitors, it is better to choose another model.

Main results

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 arrived on the market with Android 9. In the meantime it has received updates and Android 10 is now available. Although a new version of Android has just been released, this version is still fairly recent.
This is the new version of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 that we have previously tested. In comparison, the screen size is larger, the screen resolution is higher, the camera resolution is higher, the processor is faster.
The 6.4″ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels looks better than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
One of the weak points of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is the poor battery life: in our usage scenario, its 3200 mAh allow it to reach just 16 hours, which is below average.
The 106 GB of actual available internal memory (128 GB declared) are many, certainly enough to store our data.
It is a very robust mobile phone: it passed the drop test without any difficulty.
Models in this price range are usually powerful, and this phone is among the best: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has two rear cameras (the main one is 12 Mp) which allow you to get good quality photos in all light conditions, even in low light situations.
This mobile phone has two front cameras (the main one is 24 Mp) which allow you to take pictures of just sufficient quality, so selfies are not exciting.
