Foldable phones are slowly but surely growing in popularity and the Chinese market currently boasts the best selection thanks to strong competition from domestic brands. Xiaomi’s latest foldable entry launched earlier this month with the Mix Fold 3 and we are now ready with our video review.
Mix Fold 3 is among the slimmest and lightest horizontal folding phones out now. It’s just 5.3 mm unfolded and 10.9mm in its folded state while tipping the scales at 255 grams. Our unit comes with a glass back that features a special coating mimicking the feel of vegan leather. Sadly, Mix Fold 3 offers no form of ingress protection here.
While we’re talking about the back we can turn our attention to the quad Leica camera setup. This is the first foldable to launch with four camera modules offering a more versatile experience. The 50MP main and 12MP ultrawide cams offer great image quality with just the right amount of pop in both day and night shots. The 10MP 3.2x and 5x zoom modules fared well in general with the occasional white balance mishaps.
The cover screen features a wide 21:9 ratio which feels just like a regular slab phone and is much easier to type on than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5. The main 8.03 LTPO OLED screen offers an excellent multimedia experience and its crease is barely noticeable than some competitors.
Brightness is excellent with up to 1,300 nits in auto mode. The Mix Fold 3 also impressed in the battery department with a class-leading 117 hours endurance rating in our tests which is well above the competition.
