off topic, there's not much difference between a normal and a prime model.
unless you want to utilize two SIM cards at the same time while you have 60gb worth of files.
if not, don't waste the money. might as well save up for the rumored Max 2.

Anyway do you guys think RAM matters? Now that Xiaomi is coming up with 4GB-6GB RAM phones.

Does any existing app/game really need more than 3GB?

Discussing this so we all can have a better judgment which to buy when MiMax2 comes out.

my wife says no difference as she was using 3GB variant previously. we changed to the prime model as I got it cheap at $571 for two sets, BNIB.
if not because of my other SIM card, I'd have just stick to using 32gb model.
abit regret getting one set for my wife as 128gb storage is overkill for her.

I think when Mi Max 2 launches. The price probably will be much more higher than the current Mi Max.

Rumored that it will come with a better camera likes in the current Mi5.

So, if the camera, especially in low light condition is not important to you. The current price is Mi Max is worth to get.

Else, wait for the higher price tag of Mi Max 2 with a much better camera.

Are you talking about buying a local set or an export set?

Red Bean should be fine if the price is right. Most of us bought an export set from online shops which have physical shops as well as the online price is usually better and much cheaper due to online promotion.

One thing to note though. If the shop gives you a China export set. The set would likely to be loaded with China rom or 3rd party rom. You will have to flash it to official Global rom on your own or ask the shop to help flashing for you if they are willing and know how to do it.

Anyway, flashing to Global rom is a simple process. Many bros here have learned and done so with ease.

Mi Max is really a damn good phone for media purposes, playing non extreme graphic intensive games as well as for ease of reading and typing with such huge screen. The stamina of its huge 4850mha battery is amazing too.

MIUI itself is snappy too.

Wow! That's fast siol!

I can't remember Empire 13 belongs to which physical shop already!

Good! You may now transfer yourself over to the Mi Max (1) thread.

This is reserved for the upcoming Mi Max 2!
