It seems that the strong communication work helps Xiaomi create a big buzz for its latest high-end product. However, after a period of practical experience, many Chinese users are expressing their disappointment after deciding to buy a Mi MIX Fold.
On China’s largest social network – Weibo, the number of articles related to Mi MIX Fold increases day by day, attracting approximately 50 million people. Worth mentioning, there is a lot of content complaining and disparaging this super product because of poor machine quality, old technology while the price is too high.
Some user comments on Weibo:
“Mi Mix Fold does not deserve to be in Xiaomi’s Mix series. I regret supporting Xiaomi,” commented Wiji Kacha account.
“I spent tens of thousands of yuan just to own a smartphone with a camera like a cheap mobile phone. I really don’t understand why Xiaomi does this to its users” – Ningbo account.
“Many people complain that the quality of the plastic Mi Mix Fold looks poor and rickety” – Sina electronic newspaper quoted.
Also according to technology site Sina, initially, the loyal fan community of Xiaomi expressed their eagerness to wait to experience the new product. They did not hesitate to try to own Mi MIX Fold right in the first sale. However, as much as expected, the wave of disappointment is now more intense.
When comparing Xiaomi’s products with competitors in the folding smartphone segment, users will easily find a huge minus point from the Chinese phone.
The first regret when choosing Mi MIX Fold is that the screen quality is too low. Mi MIX Fold only uses old screen technology, the scanning frequency only stops at 60Hz, while the screen of Huawei Mate X2 has a scanning frequency of 90 Hz, and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 is 120 Hz. With products priced in the most high-end segment of the market, this is really hard to accept.
Next is the quality of the main camera. The 108MP figure seems to only deceive the user’s initial perception. After experiencing, they found that the photo quality of Mi MIX Fold is not much different from the Redmi Note 9.
Finally, people complain about the high price of this machine. After many minus points said, the figure of 9,999 yuan for the lowest version to 12,999 yuan for the high-end version is really not worth it. Although the overall price of Mi MIX Fold is still lower than the name from Samsung, the luxury and genuineness is really far behind in the eyes of domestic users.
That’s not to mention quite a few other weaknesses in design that are pointed out by experts or reviewers in many comparisons with competitors. The design and style of Mi MIX Fold is really not too impressive, if not disappointing after seeing this product sold out on the first day of sale.
Of course, not everything about the Mi MIX Fold is to blame. Anyway, this is still a late product, so it is dedicated to the most powerful hardware configuration by the manufacturer at the moment. The device runs Snapdragon 888, 12 GB RAM capacity and 512 GB internal memory, 5,020 mAh battery, paired from two 2,460 mAh batteries.
