Xiaomi Mi MIX: The Beast Comes With 6GB RAM & 256GB ROM: The tech giant Apple came to the market with something like the iPhone and told the market “how a mobile device should be,” in fact, most decided to evolve that idea and to present improvements in certain sections, which is what the tech giant Apple has been doing so far. But the design base remained practically the same.
It would be unfair not to value other attempts and advances, there were those who tried their luck with gadgets as special as the Galaxy Round or LG G Flex, both with curved screens, but with the little real voyage.
In the middle of all this, we can find many ways – modularity, curves – to get where we are today. Our task is not to decide who is the one who tried to change or set the standard, what we want is to understand the point at which Xiaomi wants to position itself in the market. The young Chinese company on this occasion does not want to be the one who copies, wants to teach us things about future phones today.
Being demanding with their ambition we should say that what they have done is take the idea of the Sharp Aquos and take it to an exaggerated point of size.
But there is much more to copy design lines from the Japanese phone: there is technology to fulfill the idea of making the frames disappear, we have materials as special as the ceramic, in addition to presenting specifications according to a high-end phone.
We have to remember that we were confused at the time of their introduction to the world, as they posed it as a concept, to make our mouth water seeing what could be a different phone in the hands of a designer like Philippe Starck. Then they put price and release date, and surprise arrived as Xiaomi Mi Mix which is a reality that makes other phones seem boring to look at.
To finish upsetting the consecrated names, this phone is not very expensive for what it offers: it is available here just for $567.94. Okay, it is not a gift, nor is it perfect, many would like it to be smaller, more ergonomic, and sold normally outside of China, but this does not detract from the merits of Xiaomi. Let’s get to know this awesome device better.

A ceramic phone, without frames
We are not going to debate advertising terms, the Mi Mix has frames, they are as tiny as 2 millimeters. We have to be fair and give Sharp its credit, as it was the first to market Japanese phones with this design language. Xiaomi has evolved the idea with a much larger screen, retaining a minimum thickness, which was one of the weaknesses of the Sharp Aquos.
Turn on the screen and see that it occupies almost the entire front, impresses the first few times. They have shown that a mobile phone can have a different design, making it seem old to most phones that we can put next to it. To achieve this they have had to introduce a lot of their own technology, features, and that works. Good for Xiaomi.
Before delving deeper into the details of design I would like to comment that this phone would have been even more interesting if it had opted for a smaller size 5.5-inches, creating a product that most potential buyers like. But of course, here was to throw the house out the window and get attention, what better way to do it than recruiting Philippe Starck and choosing a giant screen.
Moreover, like all Chinese high-end phones, especially in Xiaomi, the specifications are fantastic. We have a Snapdragon 821 that has been used in this device and as far as RAM memory we have the option to opt between 4GB or 6GB.
Does extra RAM Worth? The use of the phone and its needs is already in everyone, but the extra RAM will be noticed in recent applications and multitasking. With these amounts of internal memory (128GB & 256GB) goes to the background the fact of not having microSD card slot.
So, the Mi Mix is the future of mobile telephony and it is a good example of where we are going.
