DXOMark has already tested the camera and even with the note 9 and U12 + equal. Just behind the iPhone XS. The improvements over the Mi8 come, according to DXO of the improved camera algorithms and image post-processing. Colors and dynamics are supposedly great and for pictures it is one of the best tested cameras of those. Videos should be like the Mi8, but a bit better at night.

In any case, I am positively surprised and already consider whether I send my Mi5 in retirement. Do you already know when your test will come? I'm still interested in how the display beats and if VoLTE also works for us.


Only 3200 mAh battery with a 6.4 inch display? Few, do not you think so? That can be enough. just over the day. But not more.


Hi, can I already pre-order or buy the Mix 3 somewhere? Or do you know a source where to get it as fast as possible?


Ordered my mix 3 yesterday at GearBest and it should be shipped from mid-November. Will report as soon as I have it.


Does anyone have experience with the device? I'm still undecided between the Mix 3 and the 2S. This with the slider sounds good, but I see problems with dirt that makes the slider broken. I can not imagine that there is a long time to enjoy it.
