In the upper right corner above the display we will find a small LED . The front protects the hardened glass Corning Gorilla Glass with 2.5D Rounding . Even the back of the phone is rounded so it’s comfortably held in hand, on the other hand combined with ceramics and a higher weight, Mi Mix 3 is quite slippery. The phone weighs 218 grams, the dimensions are 157.9 x 74.7 x 8.5 mm. We also have nothing to say on the phone keys.
The left side of the phone frame offers a SIM card drawer and a special Xiao AI button which basically supports a Chinese assistant. The great news is that the user can choose to turn on Google Assistant or a completely different function like a flashlight or camera directly in the settings. Samsung would be able to learn from this approach with its Bixby button. On the bottom is USB-C and two grids, one is a loudspeaker, the other is a microphone.
The Mi MiX 3 pull-out telephones. Just take the phone to two fingers and push slightly apart. You get used very quickly to pulling and pushing. When you slide the phone, camera applications and turn on automatically, so you’re ready to shoot . You will also hear a click and an interesting effect on the display. The second function is used when someone calls by ejecting the call quickly to accept the call. And that’s all. For the future, Xiaomi is planning to add new features, but so far it has not happened
Initially, testing has happened to us many times, even though we did not want to take a self-image. Unfortunately, Mi Mix 3 does not support the unlocking of the phone with the face in the Czech region. You must have one of the other regions where the feature is available. The last potential plus of the pull-out phone is that it serves as an auto-cap on the selfie camera, so even if the phone was infected with a malware and tapped by a selfie camera, the attacker sees the darkness
Of course the “main” reason for choosing the ejection is to reduce the frames around the display and not to use the cut-out . That’s nice, on the other hand Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S ( bought for 10 990 CZK) had relatively small frames around the display and Mi Mix 3 is not a big difference. Owners of the new generation have a 3.1 percent larger display in proportion to the body of the phone. In general, we dare say that the ejection mechanism is a blind aisle and it is an experiment. Another Chinese company Vivo, the first in the world to release a smart phone with a pull-out, has been doing so.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 with “Czech” LTE
A few years back, Xiaomi phones have been unable to deal with Czech LTE or 4G networks in most European countries. Xiaomi has been expanding recently, so luckily it is no problem. The good news is that Mi Mix 3 works seamlessly with the Czech LTE . Both in the global and Chinese versions. They both support the B20 band, which is the most popular in the Czech Republic.

Fast and wireless charging at Mi Mix 3
We did not have the charger that is standard in the box for testing. Xiaomi delivers a fast charger, the phone itself supports Quick Charger Quick Charging 4 . But if you want to use the latest fast charging technology, you need to buy a charger that supports this technology. We tried charging with the charger of another phone that supports the generation of older QuickCharge 3.0. Within half an hour, the phone gained from zero to 39 percent . We mostly used wireless charging, which is supported with the Qi standard. Fast charging is supported and can be recharged wirelessly within two hours .
