You’re looking at the third phone to get rid of the notch and, funny enough, the third Chinese brand to follow this trend, Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3 is here to push all of the boundaries.. or bezels. The Mi Mix 3 got rid of the chin, the notch, and the bezel entirely. The first phone in history to do this, it just took us until 2018 to do so.
It actually has no sign of a notch whatsoever, because the camera is mounted on a sliding component on the backside. It’s not motorized like it is on the Find X, as it actually slides when you push it, sort of acting like a fidget feature that makes you continuously play with your phone. Whether this mechanism can take all of that sliding is a separate issue.
It seems as though Xiaomi has done their research because the Mi Mix 3 doesn’t mess around and is insanely desirable. Equipped with a magnificent 6.4 OLED on the front, dual cameras on both sides, and 10gb of RAM, this phone knows exactly what you want it to be and need. The last two phones don’t even compare to this one!
I guess you could tell the competition to slide on over, there’s a new best overall smartphone in town!
