Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold Review: Samsung Has Nothing To Worry About

Every new folding phone that launches is good news for those of us who believe that foldables are the future.
Competition drives down prices; it spurs innovation; it increases choice. So I’m happy the Mi Mix Fold from Xiaomi exists - even if right now, I can’t think of anyone here in the US I’d actually recommend it to.


This Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold Review was produced following seven days with a retail Mi Mix Fold device (China market, Google Play enabled) purchased by MrMobile and tested on AT&T and T-Mobile in New York City.
MrMobile does not accept compensation from the manufacturers of the products he reviews; no payment was provided and no manufacturer or carrier was afforded a preview or copy approval rights concerning this content.

      Not exactly true. Hardware and software go hand in hand. Also foldable are not more hardware, it's less hardware, as it can replace tablets and simple smartphones, and why not in the future, even laptops .

    8 inch is the smallest I could call a tablet though. The Samsung fold is a bit of the jack of all trades but master of none. The Mix fold kind of sucks as a phone, yes, it looks like an afterthought really. However it absolutely shines as a tablet, it is a breath of fresh air to finally have a foldable that is tablet first (all the while Huawei is phone first and Samsung is a bit of both). Btw it's not just the superior size (for a tablet) but also the using of standardized aspect ratio, the tablet like battery, the high end chipshet. All of which are completely lacking in the other two options. If you are a tablet guy the Mix fold is the only option in the market, really. As much as I love Huawei's superior design, apart from it's absurd cost, it kind of useless as a tablet due to the silly aspect ratio. On top of it it is basically a mod ranger (I am sorry, but Kirin chips have major steps to take before even approaching Snapdragons). So I respectfully disagree with the conclusion. Having owned both, Samsung is quite the downgrade for its tablet experience, even though it's probably a better phone.

      Seems like no one on NLcameras has discovered this, but if you open Mate X2 to around 15 degrees and hold it there for a few seconds, you will feel a buzz from the vibration motor, and the hinge will activate locking mode. Now you can lock it at any position.

    No camera on the inside screen, no wireless charging, probably not water and dust resistant like the Fold 2, thick and heavy as hell, outer screen is barely usable; what’s the point of releasing this beta phone? To say they’re among the first to release a foldable phone? I just wish they’d perfect it before releasing this cluster for an absorbent amount of money

    The reason why you feel awkward using the phone is that if you import phones from China, you are basically getting a phone that's tuned to common use cases in China. In China you pretty much don't have to adjust any setting besides turning off most of the system ads and app notifications, and turn on Google play if needed.

    Samsung has nothing to worry about yet, don't forget this is a first gen product form Xiaomi and they will take the foldable category some day like they did in the low-mid end range. look at xiaomi now, they are actually trading blows with Samsung at the high-end category and just 3 years ago xiaomi couldn't even dream about it.

If they sell it globally, they will fix some issues I believe, but I'm excited nonetheless for Xiaomis second foldable, cause it does have lots of potential

    I'm debating between getting this phone and the galaxy zfold 2. Z fold has a bit better design and the software is a bit better plus 120hz screen, but then again the xiaomi has a larger screen with no punch hole, a bigger battery, and is a bit cheaper. Some of the zfold articulating screen features are neat, but ultimately I don't think I'd really use them that much. In the end you are buying this type of product to have the larger screen for videos, reading, looking at documents, etc. Some kinks in the software isn't really a deal breaker.

    I wish Xiaomi would hire someone with some experience in working with android to build a better Ui. I wouldnt say that MiUi is absolute trash but its very close to it. Compared to other phone manufactures, quite a lot of options has been cut out of the stock android rom. Its roughly on the same level as Samsung Touchwiz some 10 years ago. serviceable... Just 'serviceable' thats the highest praise for MiUi that i can come up with. If Motorola can have stock android on their cheap handsets. Why cant Xiaomi? Id flash my Note 9 Pro to a different rom but a feature like Android Pay is very useful to me.
