The Xiaomi Mi Max from the Chinese smartphone maker is a whopper of a phone with a 6.4-inch full-HD display. For now, it's China-only, though we suspect it will soon hit other markets, such as India.

The phone features an all-metal build and has a fingerprint scanner located at the back.

The phone is hard to use with one hand, but holding it one-handed isn't too bad.

The metal chassis rests comfortably in the palms, but don't try stretching your thumb, as you won't be able to reach the other end unless you have really big paws.

The rear 16-megapixel camera takes pretty good shots. It has a front 5-megapixel shooter.

Despite its size, the phone's pretty slim at 7.5mm thick.

The fingerprint scanner is placed in a comfortable position at the rear and lets you quickly unlock the phone.
