    1. u r right i used mi max sometimes it’s hard to place finger on it in one hand use

  1. Gogi and everyone, the is a great 9% discount +300 supercash via Mobikwik on Ebay for today..
    Should I buy refurbished/open box Mi 5 white w/ 400rs mi earphone included @15377 or open box (used only for 3-4days) le Max 2 under 11k.. They both look so enticing, which one is better..?
    Is Mi 5 better than all phones under 18k with the likes of Asus zenfone 3, Moto g5+, Honor 8 lite( new @14300), le Max 2, Nubia Z11 mini S 64gb, coolpad cool 1, future Mi Max 2, lenovo Z2+ and others in terms of display, performance including high end gaming, camera, earphone music and totally VFM.. Plzz help out gogi ☺

        1. Don’t fall prey to Ebay….

          I repeat, never…. Ebay is not a good location to get products….

          And yes that Supercash… Is as supershit…

          You can use only 10% in a transaction…

          I faced that absurd conditions while recharging jio..

          1. Yes shubham totally agree.. Me too, Jio recharge started this maniacal cycle aka Supercash (expires in 45days) and now with new T&C, u can only use it with Rs100 and over transactions and that too without using promo code, also they charged more for paying the electricity bill and haven’t replied back regarding all this new sucky T&C.. The new name should be #FooledUCash’ or #SuperLameCash?. As they make no sense.
            What kind of experience u had with ebay..? Plezz share.. I saw sellers last 5 costomer reviews on ebay’s page and they were positive.. One cosumer even saying that he got a almost new like 2-3 day used Le Max 2, is it too good to be true..?

        2. buy le max 2 – has 2k screen , 6gb ram , 4k recording.
          it is better than other phones u mentioned.

          1. Its a 4 GB ram variant.. 2k display sounds great, is this the best quality display under 18k?
            P.S. I want to use it with my VR headset.

          2. don’t buy any used phone or refurbished , not even from eBay or other sites , there are too fake reviews/sellers .

            If ur budget is 20k then buy new.
            These are the option
            1
            Moto G5 Plus
            Rs. 16,999
            2
            Lenovo Z2 Plus
            Rs. 16,398
            3
            Lenovo P2
            Rs. 16,999
            4
            Asus Zenfone 3
            Rs. 19,999
            these are launch prices.
            more options
            honor 6x
            honor 8 lite
            redmi note 4

          3. Buy Honor 8 lite 14-15k
            premium looks
            best performance
            ignore letv and other brands.

          4. Its a bit hard to ignore Le Max2 as its the only one w/ QHD display along w/ SD820.. And didn’t u say to buy Max2 earlier. Z2 plus and Zenfone 3 r at @12999 & @17999 respectively. Ya.. Honor 8 lite is beautiful inside out. Is it as good as or better the G5+, zenfone 5, le max 2, cool 1, p2 and others in aspects of display, powerful gaming, camera, earphones music and a total VFM package. I know I’m asking a lot but Would u please rate them from best to good in each aspect..

            And why not to buy open box/open seal/refurbished phones from eBay..? Plzz explain i want to know. Can All the 100s of reviews/ratings be fake? And how to identity which r genuine? Please through some light on everything gogi.. Ty in advance?

          1. And coolpad cool 1 is also made by leeco.. Have leeco really left India and what about their after sales services to everyone buying there phones..?
            Is this for real gogi bro, plzz guide..

        3. if you require latest updates, a bland design, good camera and bland media experience you can go for g5 plus..If you need great media experience through earphones, great can and great design go for Nubia with your eyes closed. its way better than the other phones.

          1. Honor 8 lite > g5 plus
            More premium looks
            Less price
            Android 7.0
            Better performance
            Best Camera/Selfie.
            Good battery backup.
            Overall has edge over g5 plus(and also in this price segment).

    1. Ebay has got a peculiar system of cancellation. Only the seller can cancel once you place order. We will have to beg him to cancel the order, normally.

  2. I already have Mi Max 32 gb. Gogi Sir, Looking the specifications I think leave the Idea to upgrade to Mi Max 2.
    What do you say…….
    Waiting for valuable reply….

    1. Earlier owner of town series were very much frustrated. Limited no. of apps. Even custom ROM was not available.

  3. I was eagerly waiting for this…I knew Mi Max 2 is gonna come soon that’s why I didn’t go for the Mi Max…Will wait for Mi Max 2 to come to India, read some reviews & if I found most reviews as +ve, I will go for it…I need a big screen phone with great battery life…

    I wanted to get Honor Note 8 but no local release stopped me from getting it…

  4. I think it is not a monumental upgrade. But it has improved a lot than its predecessor. It is is more or like a multimedia companion apart from all other stuff. Definitely worth 16k in it’s class.

    Gogi…your views on it. Are you going to review it?

    1. Why everyone is talking about sd 660 should be there idk. The chipset is launched on 9th may. The devices powered with sd660 will be in Q3 2017

      1. Mobility is difficult with this giant phone, even if you have big hands it’s very difficult to operate it with single hand, it is more likely to fall. With this big screen if it falls then for sure screen will get divided 🙂 (means it wont be in a single piece). The bigger the screen more fragile it becomes. Even carrying in your Jeans is little uncomfortable and not good for your phone if you sit or bend, if you have stretchable Jeans then it’s little easier.

        I like this big screen so I have bought the previous version and I make sure to use it with a proper rubberized cover, in my case I use “Norby Heavy Duty Rugged Tough Hybrid Armor Guard Back Case” which is keeps my phone guarded with dual layer of protection.

        If you can compromise on your mobility this phone is really good in other departments.

      2. Actually I m using Mi Max since past 8 months. After 2 days we get used to it so much that my old 5.5 inch phone I feel very small. It fits in the pocket as well unless if the pocket is small or if the pant is very tight.

  5. With 5300mah battery and power efficient SD 625 it will deliver very solid battery life perfect for non stop entertainment like watching movies and videos. Gaming will be ok, not that great. I was expecting newer better SD processor but considering price factor its not bad.

          1. Usually Max series is same as note series, with an upgrade on Display and battery. So even this could get same camera as in RN4.
