    Impressive Battery Life

    Not so impressive low light photography

    Xiaomi Mi Max flaunts a 16 MP main snapper at its back with PDAF and f/2.0 aperture. While the usual picture quality and level of details are good, the low light shots are not that great. To clock good low light shots, you need to use the dual-tone LED flash even if the subjects are in close distance. There is a front-facing 5 MP camera sensor with 85-degrees wide angle lens. This camera is moderate in terms of quality.
