US$179 Xiaomi Mi Max phablet is a Tablet and Smartphone in one

My fellow Caribbean and Jamaicans, are you on the prowl for a smartphone that’s a big as a Tablet?

These phablets as they are called are now all the rage in Jamaica since the removal of CET (Common External Tariff) on their importation in 2014. Phablets have the dual functionality of a smartphone and can receive calls while acting as a reading device for glossy magazines and novels.

Well the US$224 Xiaomi Mi Max, which was officially launched in May 2016, has your phablet cravings covered. It has the following specs which are pretty pedestrian for a phablet:

  • Snapdragon 650 chipset
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB of Internal Storage

But there is an even cheaper version of the Xiaomi Mi Max available in China which Caribbean nationals with the right connections can purchase and have shipped to Jamaica.

This version costs US$179 and comes with slightly lower specs:

  • Snapdragon 650 chipset
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of Internal Storage

Both come with a microSD Card that can expand storage up to 32GB, so this built-in memory limit is not much to worry about, as the process performance isn’t compromised on a phablet. You get the best of both worlds in one device; a tablet, e-reader and smartphone in one.

Just make sure you have a Bluetooth headset to answer the calls, as it’s kinda unwieldy to pull out every time you receive a call. Also, don’t be perturbed by the fact that this is a China-only device; once it hits India, expect it to show up in Indian merchant electronics store here in Jamaica and the wider Caribbean!
