Default Xiaomi Mi Max 3

Finally got it! Free air shipping from aliexpress too tho customs held it for a week it would have been here in about 2 weeks.

Man what an upgrade so much faster than the finally retired old Note 2. Huge screen I dont need to pull out the reading glasses anymore. At least for now. Note 2 easily fit inside the screen lol...

Fingerprint sensor is fast. Was a bit worried that with the Snapdragon 710 version of the Mi Max 3 not coming out that the SD 636 might be a bit of a slouch but not at all so far.

Only downside so far is the thing is heavy. Its the battery obviously. 5500 mah isnt light. Its heavier than the Note 2 with its big Otterbox case.

Full charge took about an hour and a half. Ill see how the standby goes.

Its missing 2 things which is NFC (dont think Ill miss that) and wireless charging but I might get a kit for that on amazon... so used to wired charging I dont know if a slow wireless charger kit is worth it tho. Note 2 didnt have wireless charging either.

The glass screen protector is nice too I had tried some plastic ones that sucked on the note 2. It was creepy the way the glass just sucked itself to the screen leaving a perfectly clear screen. I can barely tell its on. Cheap flip case is ok for it for now. And it fits easily in jacket pockets. Dont ever think of putting something this big in a pants pocket tho.
