the first MIX was * the * true masterpiece as it was an uncompromising usable concept, he saw the future coming out of nowhere with his class in the age of design with frames.
Since then, too many missteps and compromises have followed; an uncertain foldable ‘Mix’ that the world has lost track of, is just one example.
The Mix brand is the best Xiaomi can do and should be relaunched as soon as possible and without further mistakes.
Demongornot, June 19, 2021Yes, no one bought the Mi 10 Ultra, Mi 10S and Mi 10 Pro, so much so that they again tried to see … moreI was prepared to purchase the Alpha Mix even above the retail price if needed. Unfortunately, it was never published. Heck, I offered a guy with a few connections to Xiaomi $ 1000 on top of the price of the phone to get me one. Alas, still Alpha less.
If the Mix 4 isn’t a crappy slider, I’ll probably buy it.
Just another marketing gimmick only
Mi queues are getting more expensive. I missed the Mi 6 price, the real affordable flagship.
Well yes but no. I’m quite interested in Mi 10u as they cost around $ 600 in my country, and the available competitors are S20 FE 4g, Vivo X60, Oppo reno 5 pro. Mi 10u looks interesting, especially with the camera performance, an excellent display, an SD 865 chip, and some flagship features for this price.
Tbh, wait a few months, and the price will drop significantly. Once Mi 10 was sold for $ 480 less than 6 months after its release.
Anonymous, June 19, 2021No one will buy an expensive Xiaomi.Yes, nobody bought the Mi 10 Ultra, Mi 10S and Mi 10 Pro so much so that they tried to sell phones again and again nobody bought the Mi 11 Ultra and Mi 11 Pro.
In addition, no one was ready to buy the Mi Mix Alpha despite its price, no one bought the Mi Mix Fold …
There is a good balance between hating and keeping in touch with reality.
The dear Xiaomi sells well, just like the dear Apple and Samsung sells well, no matter what the enemies of the X or Y brands say.
Even the Xperia 1 Mk3 sold well despite the price, niche appearance, and enemies.
Demongornot, June 18, 2021The slider was much better and unlike the SVP which will flood the market, this is a missing feature … moreTotally agree .. the slider needs to be brought back .. my mix 3 is a bit heavy but it makes my forearms stronger. Another thing is the privacy aspect, you are always sure that the front camera is inactive when the slider is returned.
They should have done this with pop up and made another phone with UDC. The demand for cursors still exists.
Having said that, someone said that QHD is too much for the phone and FHD + is enough. I agree with them. QHD consumes more battery life.
Call me once they can put a USC with QHD screen. Until there…
No one will buy an expensive Xiaomi.
John Wayne, June 18, 2021Is this a 2021 phone with a pop-up camera?Unfortunately, only the Lenovo Legion 2 Pro and Legion Duel 2 are a real pop-up camera phone released in 2021 (should it count as one or two?).
If you are willing to accept a broader description, then the Zenfone 8 Flip with its fold-down can count.
And the slider has been gone for even longer with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G from May 2019, although the original (not 5G) is from November 2018.
Ditto with the Honor Magic 2 3D from March 2019 but with the original (not 3D) also from November 2018.
The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is from January 2019, but the Lenovo Z5 Pro is also from November 2018.
So it’s hard to say which one is really the last as it depends on whether we count these other variants as theirs or as separate phones.
And that’s the whole range of slider smartphones, 6 of them in total but half of them being the same in two variations with little change …
This is in stark contrast to the 2020 pop-up phones, which include:
* Poco F2 Pro, K30 Pro, K30 Pro Zoom, K30 Ultra.
* Honor X10.
* Lenovo Legion Duel, Lenovo Legion Pro.
* Vivo NEX 3S 5G.
* LG wing.
* Motorola One Fusion +.
* Honor Enjoy 20 Plus 5G.
* Huawei Y9a.
* Tecno Camon 15 Pro, Tecno Camon 15 Premier.
* Coolpad Cool 6.
* Infinix S5 Pro (several camera variants).
* Umidigi S5 Pro.
* Elephone PX Pro.
And some even more obscure brands too.
Considering that many still had a headphone jack and by 2020 we had a lot less 2MP Macro + Depth stuff and more phones (even among the limited members of the pop-up family) like the Vivo NEX 3S 5G which had the Holy Trinity of Wide + Ultra-wide + Telephoto, none of which are under the industry standard 12Mp while today only $ 1000 + CAN have it.
2020 was really the golden age compared to 2021 where we hardly have anything of interest, it’s like the 2021 phones are just “copy and paste + some random but small changes”.

Anonymous, June 18, 2021it makes the phone so heavy and useless when there is a small pop-up cameraRead my review, it can be done quite easily and without adding significant weight.
Plus, it has the added benefit of lifting ONLY when you want / do it, which some people prefer.
And those who use pop-ups and sliders generally accept that the device is heavier as a result, so that’s not a problem.

It is a copy of Sharp Crystal, in the same way as Mi8 is a copy of iPhone X.

BTW in my country we call this innovation, there will always be something different when “they” make heavy junk.
You know what … All our cars are carbon copy, made from the first “Benz Patent-Motorwagen” car made in Germany in 1886 …
Please try to think before you make that annoying copier comment you made or ??

But Xiaomi gets the credits, although Crystal has been sold in the US and Europe.
Mi Mix wouldn’t exist if Sharp had never created Crystal.

What are they thinking about. Who in a good way would do it instead of a galaxy z fold 3.
