Connectivity & Ports
In terms of wireless connectivity, the Mi Mix 3 is actually packing quite a punch. It supports AC-WiFi, which is important since we Malaysians have Unifi Turbo now. It also comes with Bluetooth 5.0 for better connectivity with your wireless earphones and whatnot. This is important because the Mi Mix 3 does not have a 3.5mm audio jack.
And I can understand why. The Mi Mix 3 is thin and the 3.5mm audio jack is nearly as thick as the thicker half of the phone itself. Xiaomi did have the courtesy to include a dongle for the 3.5mm audio jack as well – so I guess that is a compromise that I can accept.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 comes with a dual nano SIM card slot only and there is no option for microSD card slot.
As for the buttons, the volume rocker and power button are located at the right side of the phone itself.
On the left side, Xiaomi included an AI button. They just call it as an AI button, but there is a menu to customize the shortcuts for the AI button.
At the bottom of the phone we can find the microphone, single loudspeaker, and also the USB-C port. It is quite disappointing at the Mi Mix 3 does not have stereo front-facing speakers or at least have the earpiece act as a secondary loudspeaker. The loudspeaker placement and quality of the Mi Mix 3 can surely be improved.
