Best VALUE phone I have ever had!
Thanks and congrats to bro @kelvinti, without u maybe this thread won't reach part 2
Yes, I followed this thread from mid Dec onwards as looking for replacement for my ZTE Z7 Max. It was a good phone until the touch panel spoiled. Then I was hooked from then in and manage to get myself a 4/128 too

+1 in new thread.

Do you guys use the ring attachment to get a better grip?

Other than using the ring attachment for better grip... it's also a stand when you place it on table to watch videos... keke...

pretty useful....


Anyone sticking the ring attachment directly on the back of phone itself, instead of TPU casing etc?

=============

Kelvinti,

Thanks for your tip on the volume issue...

just got to bear with it till next update fixes it.. =(

Captain America Shield looks nice haha, probably getting one to try out. Got Pokeball too.

Edit: Order from their website a bit cheaper, $3.90 > $3.50.

Good to hear all are happy with Mi Max even though it is not the top end phone.

Mi Max's selling point is really its huge screen, huge battery and speedy and smooth operations for media consumption and game plays at such affordable price tag... even though it is not for those 3D high graphic intensive games.

That's good enough for many mainstream consumers here.

Comparing the price to SD650/652 powered Oppo R9 Plus, Samsung A9 Pro and some other brands, Mi max pricing is top notch in that context.

Mi Max handset quality has been quite good too. There isn't any hardware issue being reported so far. At least, no major quality issue.

I have been using slim tpu transparent case since day one coz I like to keep it as slim as possible.

Of coz, I have got to be extra careful not to drop it hard.

I have a thicker aluminum case coming. I will try it and see if I'm okay with the extra thickness for extra protection.

Newstar on Qoo10 and shopee or iSky and MiddleSky on Lazada are all referring to the same seller and shop.

There are pure china rom seller with China rom preloaded in their handset for Mi Max.

Yes, it can be flashed to global rom with ease. Don't worry.

You can try to ask them to help flashing to global rom for you if they are willing to even though they have no obligation to do it for buyers. No harm asking, right?

Really never see it coming to be able to pass 10000 posts sia since I first joined in August, left, joined back, left again and joined back the Mi Max again and settled down now.

An incredible journey accompanied by awesome folks here!

For me, the main comparison now is between this (thank you!) and the one on lazada by simder, at $369. Assuming both can be stacked with shopback with ~$10 off, this means that one will be paying $30 for extra 5 months of warranty (newstar 1 month vs simder 6 months).

Do people like the silver or gold one better?
I like the contemporary Gold tone of Mi Max. It's light Gold.

It is not that typical Gold tone likes on the 1kg gold bar hiding in your drawer or the Gold tone of iPhone or other brands.

Even my ah girl also decided to buy the Gold Mi Max at the end knowing she is always a silver and grey person.

For the shopee MiMax at $208 is it 3/32 version ?
Anyone bought from this seller before,?
Confirmed 3/32 as per its page.

I have no idea about this shop. It should be okay.

Any other folks may be able to advise further.

Haha, good for you. At first if getting from Simder, sure get gold. Coz they only have that colour. Never seen the gold colour MiMax before though, but Silver looks simple for me. It's nice if they have Grey for 4/128 variant, but will settle for any colour lah, as long as it is 4/128. Really worth the money.
