We got a Mi Mix 3 for a family member, mainly for the hidden front camera. The slider is fun to play with, haha. Hardware is overkill for a regular user, still very snappy. MIUI 12 also has an interesting privacy setting fwiw...
And yes, getting a Xiaomi for privacy reasons seems to be counterintuitive lol, but the hidden front camera is what we wanted for this clumsy non-techie user.
Privacy and Xiaomi.. something not add up.. 🤔
for the Hidden camera, sliding the whole screen is an interesting concept. Just worry it's hard to hold when taking pictures. Used a "Slide" Blackberry (9800) before, the weight just not even and sometimes a bit hard to hold. For keyboard typing, you still have both hands on the phone, for taking selfie, many time just one hard...not sure if it is easy to "tip". What's your experience?
@rossputin : You're welcome 🙂 Every phone is a slab now, so the hidden-front-cam phones can be a nice change. I'm a big fan of the concept, sadly it seems short lived... (I hate the hole punch/teardrop design 😡)
@softech : Yeah, I already mention the pricacy part lol. As for front cam usage, the screen only slides down ~1cm so it doesn't change the way you handle it, feels the same as any slab phone lol. You can check some youtube reviews for it, they will better explain/showcase this.
