Anyone into big phones like this? This is one of the biggest phones available, along with the more expensive honor note 8x max (7.1”)

It’s a very attractive $259. It has most of the lte bands that we need from what I can see. Also has a non amoled screen, for those who are interested. I’ve never had a phone larger than the 6.4” Note, and this is a fraction of the cost. If one plus or Motorola made this, I would already own it. My only holdup is the fact I know nothing about Xiaomi. Any experience with them?

I used the Mi Max 2 before and the battery lasted 2 days with intensive usage, the screen was huge but it looked dull and not as bright as an iPhone LCD. I'm pretty sure the Note 3 will be similar only larger, also considering the price it's worth it although as I barely trust Chinese OEM's I'd root it and install a custom Rom.

I’d never do any banking or purchases on it. Just use it for Spotify, Reddit and forums
