Xiaomi Mi Max 3: the Battery King cometh

Xiaomi Mi Max 3: the Battery King cometh

Xiaomi did something uncharacteristic lately. Within 24 hours before its official event, it has practically revealed everything there is to know about the Mi Max 3. It’s a strategy LG regularly employs for its flagships but unusual for Xiaomi. Not that we’re complaining because now we know just how massive the phone is to fit its equally massive battery. But while the price tag is fortunately not that big, US consumers are again left wishing for good things they still can’t have.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 killer mid-range specs confirmed

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 killer mid-range specs confirmed

Smartphones are getting more powerful and more stylish but the one thing that they don’t seem to be getting better at is battery life. Having a large battery or even day-long battery life seems almost antithetical to modern high-end smartphones and their slim designs. For long-lasting power, consumers will have to turn to smartphones less covered, like the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max 3 whose secrets have all but been revealed by this latest leak.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 specs VS The world’s best phones

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is now around a month out from release - give or take a couple weeks. Now's the time we take a peek at what we know - and how that stacks up against the competition. That means the Galaxy Note 8, the iPhone X, and big sellers in China - especially those from Xiaomi. This isn't EVERY phone people will consider when the Note 9 is set for release - and not long after launch, there'll be even MORE competition. But it's a start!

Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, Mi Pad 4 launched for budget-conscious buyers

Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, Mi Pad 4 launched for budget-conscious buyers

Xiaomi has always been known for its dirt cheap yet decent smartphones but with its relatively younger Redmi line, it proved it can go even lower. The popular Chinese OEM is proving so yet again with the launch of its Redmi 6 Pro smartphone and Mi Pad 4 tablet, giving consumers more choices in “bang for buck” value. At least if you’re in one of the non-US markets Xiaomi caters to.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 will have face unlock feature

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 will have face unlock feature

Xiaomi is perhaps best known for its very affordable smartphones that have never officially reached US shores. What is less known, however, is that it is one of the few remaining makers of Android tablets, which have never officially reached US shores either. It would seem, however, that Xiaomi will be stirring up the tablet market a bit with its upcoming Mi Pad 4, what is perhaps the first tablet to have a face unlock that some are expecting to debut in the next iPad Pro.

Xiaomi Mi Max 3 is back to take the battery crown

Xiaomi Mi A2 Android One leak: everything you need to know

Xiaomi Mi A2 Android One leak: everything you need to know

Xiaomi isn’t exactly known for playing by Google’s rules so the Mi A1, its first Android One smartphone was both a surprise and almost considered a fluke. A deleted Twitter poll, however, proved that vanilla Android One was more popular than its own MIUI skin. While Xiaomi will hardly give up its customizations because of that, it seems it has at least been encouraged to follow up the Mi A1. Now thanks to Swiss retailer digitec, we now know everything there is about the Xiaomi Mi A2.

Xiaomi Mi 8: yet another phone you wished you could buy

Xiaomi Mi 8: yet another phone you wished you could buy

Xiaomi is being pretty cruel to smartphone buyers in the US, knowingly or not, and we bet knowingly. For years it has been putting out smartphones it knows buyers will stumble over like a Black Friday sale and for years it has denied them that chance, waiting for that perfect storm that may never come at this point. It is again making that same cruel tease with the Xiaomi Mi 8, its eighth anniversary handset. And here's why you're going to wish Xiaomi would just come and take your money (in exchange for a phone, of course).

Smartphone sales are growing again, and Huawei is on the rise

Smartphone sales are growing again, and Huawei is on the rise

Back in February, Gartner revealed that, for the first time in more than a decade, smartphone sales have declined. Just a wee bit, mind, but still declined. That may cause some worry for market analysts and manufacturers if that trend continued for months. Fortunately for everyone involved and invested in the market, that's not the case. At the end of the first quarter of 2018, smartphone sales are back up. But more importantly, one of the winners in that quarter is Huawei, one of the most embattled OEM as well.
