The screen size reaches 6.9" inches. With a large display, phone offers a great experience for watching videos, playing games and reading. The best phones today are 6.5'' or more. They have the advantage of a large display area that allows you to see more content than with conventional display sizes. LCD displays are currently taking a back seat. This is mainly due to higher power consumption. In addition, they have the disadvantage of lower colour contrast, which can be reflected e.g. in the resulting photos. On the other hand, phones with LCD displays are in general cheaper than those with OLED technology.
Display Resolution of Xiaomi MI Max 3 is 2160 x 1080 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px.
|PROCESSOR Xiaomi MI Max 3|
|Processor Type (CPU)||Qualcomm Snapdragon 636|
|Clock Speed||1.8 GHz||Better than 64 % of phones rated.|
|Processor Core Qty||8-core||Better than 99 % of phones rated.|
|64-bit Architecture||Yes||Better than 81 % of phones rated.|
|Graphics System (GPU)||Qualcomm ADRENO 509|
Xiaomi MI Max 3 is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 636. The number of processor cores is 8. It is a number of cores that plays an important role in evaluating the performance of phone as it is responsible for computing operations. Smartphones already commonly have a core count of around 4 to 8. Multi-core processors can perform better and reduce the processing time of a request to a minimum, which is reflected in the responsiveness of the phone, e.g. in the speed of opening applications. The processor frequency indicates how many instructions phone can process in 1 second. The higher the frequency, the better the performance. Standard processor frequency range today is between 1.8 GHz and 2.8 GHz. Xiaomi MI Max 3 reaches the frequency of 1.8 GHz.
The processor also includes the graphics accelerator Qualcomm ADRENO 509.
|MEMORY Xiaomi MI Max 3|
|RAM||LPDDR4X SDRAM - 4 GB||Better than 83 % of phones rated.|
|Internal Memory Size (Storage Capacity)||64 GB||Better than 78 % of phones rated.|
|Supported Flash Memory Cards (Expandable Memory)||microSDHC, microSDXC - up to 256 GB|
The phone´s internal memory capacity is 64 GB. The size of the internal storage determines e.g., how many photos, songs, movies, or applications you can store on your phone. For everyday use and storing photos, songs or movies, this medium-sized internal storage is ideal. The advantage is also a lower price of phones equipped with this storage capacity. Best phones today range from 256 GB to 1 TB. That size is suitable for the most demanding users who shoot a lot of high-resolution photos or videos in 4K. Nevertheless, you'll have to pay extra for these higher capacities. Luckily, most smartphone manufacturers nowadays offer models with different memory sizes to suit every user.
An additional option to increase the storage capacity of this model is to insert a memory card.
RAM memory of the Xiaomi MI Max 3 is LPDDR4X SDRAM - 4 GB. Most powerful phones currently have an operating memory of 12 GB or more, which is especially useful for demanding users such as gaming enthusiasts. Normally, phones nowadays have 6 to 8 GB of RAM, which means that the phone can easily handle normal operation and more demanding applications. Operating memory of less than 4 GB is found in lower-end phones or older models, and they are suitable for low-end users who don't use demanding applications and have the phone more for basic use.

The rear camera of the Xiaomi MI Max 3 is equipped with 2 lenses, with each lens having a different role in taking pictures. Most common lens you'll see on smartphones is a wide-angle lens, telephoto lens or macro lens. A wide-angle lens is mainly used to capture landscapes and other spatially larger compositions where a wide field of view is needed. A telephoto lens is designed for photographing subjects at a distance and often has an optical zoom. A macro lens is ideal for close-ups and small objects. The resolution of the main lens is 12 Megapixel. Higher resolution does not necessarily mean super high quality photos. Furthermore, it depends on the pixel size but also on other important factors. The aperture of main lens reaches F/1.9 value. The best phones have a lens with an aperture of up to F/1.5, where more light can pass through sensor and photos will be of a high quality even in low light conditions. However, lenses with apertures around F/1.8 to F/2.2 are the most common. The lower the number after the slash, the better the photo quality. Some users will also appreciate facial recognition feature, which allows camera to recognise the face of person in frame and automatically focus on it.
The resolution reaches size of 5 Megapixel.
The front camera of phone Xiaomi MI Max 3 has one lens. This number of lenses is standard on most smartphones nowadays. The resolution of front lens reaches 8 Megapixel. Again, it should be noted that resolution is only one of several other significant factors that affect resulting quality of a photo. The main lens is also equipped with aperture of F/2.0.
The facial recognition feature is just a nice cherry on top.
