We’ve had a little over a week to digest the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold. The foldable pairs impressive hardware with a steep price tag, but it’s only available in China for now. But, if it were available in your region, would it interest you?
We asked you what you thought of the Mi Mix Fold in this recent poll. Is it hot or not? Here’s what you told us.
Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold: Hot or Not?
More than 1,600 votes were tallied, and an overwhelming number of readers seemingly love Xiaomi’s first entry into the foldable phones market. Just under 69% of you think the Mi Mix Fold is hot, while 31% believe otherwise.
While the Mi Mix Fold’s design takes a leaf out of Samsung and Huawei’s recent foldables, its feature set arguably makes it a more attractive option. The liquid lens rear camera is a nifty selling point, allowing telephoto and macro shots from the same camera. The inclusion of a 90Hz outer OLED display, Snapdragon 888 beneath, and a 108MP rear camera also help its credentials.
Nevertheless, the Mi Mix Fold’s positive sentiment is surprising, considering the negativity towards foldable phones in the comments section. See some reader feedback on Xiaomi’s entry and other foldables below.
Here’s what you told us
Wongwatt: Folding phones are pointless, it’s clear than rollable devices have a huge number of advantages over them.bigdav1178: I honestly don’t see a huge use-case for these foldables like this. Of the foldables that have been released, the “Z Flip” style seems like the most practical design.Gianluca di Maggio: It might be a clone but it looks a lot more appealing than the Z Fold 2 to me, while adding some actual innovations outside of the foldable screen.Moose: I voted NOT hot but only because I wouldn’t want any foldable phone, nothing I could not carry comfortably in my shirt pocket. When I want a larger screen, I can use my tablet or laptop.
