Xiaomi Mi Max Problems
Xiaomi has released the Mi Max series to offer devices with larger screens, more than other phones, along with a huge battery for long-term use. Xiaomi released the Mi Max 2 more than a year ago, but the device continues to sell well.
Mi Max 2, of course, is aimed at not all enthusiasts of the mobile market, since it has a rather large form factor that may not appeal to everyone. Fortunately, Xiaomi continues to deploy updates for phones, so most of the problems described below should be fixed by the manufacturer.
However, the fact is that regardless of whether you have bought the phone for a long time or not, there are always several problems and errors that make it difficult for the user to work. The latest Mi Max 2 contains several errors and individual problems, however, most of these problems are easy to fix, which does not take a lot of time.
So, let’s look at a few Mi Max 2 problems and how to solve them.
Some users of Mi Max 2 often complain about application problems. There are several reasons why the application may fail, and if you are facing the same problem, here are a few things that will help you solve the problem.
Clearing the cache and application data: You can clear the application cache and application data, which often cause problems. Select “Settings.” “Installed applications.” Click on the application that causes the problem. “Clear Cache / Data”.
If the application continues to show problems, we recommend that you remove it and re-download from the Google Play Store.
In case both methods do not work, a software error can cause the problem, which can be fixed by an update from the developer or Xiaomi OTA-update.
Notification Problem Mi Browser
Unwanted notifications remain a headache for users, and most of us want to avoid such notifications. Several users of Mi Max 2 were concerned about unwanted notifications from the Mi Browser app on their devices.
If you are also tired of unwanted browser notifications on your Mi Max 2, here’s how to stop this mess.
Launch the Mi Browser application and click on the “Settings” button. On the Availability tab, you will see the Notifications option. Just click on “Notifications” and then turn them off.
You can also completely turn off notifications by going to Settings. “Installed applications.” “Overview”. “Notifications.” Disable.
Each of the methods will not allow Mi Browser to send unwanted notifications.
Poor performance in Pubg
PUBG is one of the best mobile phone games. Winning this game requires quick reflexes and an understanding of the situation, and if the performance of your device does not meet the requirements of the game, the gameplay leaves much to be desired.
Mi Max 2 users are worried about device performance during PUBG playback after a recent update. Users claim that during the game in PUBG they observe frame loss and lag that did not exist before the OTA update was installed.
We understand that smooth gameplay is the only requirement for PUBG players, so here are a few things to help you smooth the gameplay on your Mi Max 2.
Click on the settings shortcut during the game, then go to the “Graphics” tab. You will see a setting between smoothing and balance.
Change the frame rate to high. This will make the game smoother.
We also recommend that you close all background applications before starting the game, which will help reduce the CPU load and also free up more RAM, thereby improving performance in PUBG.
Use the Game Booster feature available in MIUI, it will help clear third-party loads and prioritize hardware performance towards the game.
Camera application failed
And while this is not a widespread problem, there are a couple of Mi Max 2 users who have encountered the problem of the factory camera application on the device. Users report that the camera application often crashes during use.
If you also face the same problem, then here is what you need to do to fix the camera application.
Clear cache and data: The camera application may crash due to an error, so we would recommend starting with clearing the cache and data by selecting “Settings”. “Installed applications.” “Camera”. Clear Cache / Data. Reboot the camera application and check for problems.
If this does not solve the problem, reboot the device in safe mode. To do this, follow these steps:
Press and hold the power button;
When you see the Xiaomi logo, release the power button, then press and hold the volume down button;
Release the button when you see “Safe Mode” in the lower left corner;
Now open the camera application and check how the application works. If there are no problems, then the crash causes another application, so we recommend that you remove any application after installing which problems with the camera started.
Fortunately, the problem is not common and does not affect most users of Mi Max 2. Users claim that the device does not charge beyond 3% after a complete discharge.
If you are facing the same problem, here is what you can do to fix the situation.
Make sure you use an external USB cable as well as a power adapter to charge your device. Some third-party chargers can do more harm than good, causing problems with the components of the device.
If the phone still does not charge, we recommend that you leave it connected to a power source and force a reset. Please keep in mind that this can be a bit more complicated than a simple hard reset. We recommend that you perform this procedure when you have more than 25% of the battery.
If the phone still does not charge, then the only way to solve the problem is to visit the Xiaomi service center.
Poor sound recording quality
Many users of Mi Max 2 are disappointed with the Mi Max 2 sound recording capabilities, users report that the sound quality is average at best.
And while we understand that this can be a serious problem for some, unfortunately, there are no fixes for this problem yet, and we doubt that the problem can be fixed by updating the OTA. The Pixel 3 also suffers from poor sound recording quality, however, it seems that this is more a hardware problem than a software bug.
Almost every smartphone on the market has problems with battery consumption. Mi Max 2 is no exception, as several users have already reported that the battery life of Mi Max 2 has sharply decreased.
If you also run into this problem on Mi Max 2, here is what you can do.
Soft reset device. Press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons at the same time until the screen goes blank. The device will reboot automatically. Soon you will see the Xiaomi logo. If not, just press and hold the power button.
Disable the “high precision” location. On the settings page, find “Location”, among the results there will be several parameters. Change the location method from high accuracy to low or completely disable this function until you need to track the location from the application that you are using.
Uninstall the application that consumes battery. Most social networking apps, such as Facebook, often consume energy, as they constantly work in the background to update messages and track the activity of your friends. This can be fixed by disabling the application in the background or by uninstalling the application, limited to the web model. You should look at the “Battery” section in the “Settings” application to check which applications discharge the battery more.
Set the screen timeout to 30 seconds. And while this may seem like a simple solution, setting a short timeout can help save battery, especially if you leave the device with an active screen quite often. Look for “Timeout” in the settings menu, note, set the screen timeout.
Connectivity issues Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi problems are easily fixed and do not require much time. If you cannot connect to Wi-Fi with your Mi Max 2, follow these steps to connect to Wi-Fi.
Remove the Wi-Fi network from the list of saved networks of your device. Go to Settings. “Connection”. “Wi-Fi” and click on the “Forget” button opposite the name of the desired network to which you could not connect. Now try connecting to the same Wi-Fi network.
The problem may also be related to your Wi-Fi router, so just try disabling it and then turning on the router after 10 seconds. This should help solve the Wi-Fi problem you are facing.
Reset network settings. This will delete all Bluetooth related data on your device, but note that the function will also delete all your Wi-Fi networks, mobile data limits, saved connected devices and application restrictions. The good side is that most often this trick works. To reset the network settings on your Mi Max 2, follow these steps:
Go to the device’s settings and search with the text “Reset network settings”;
Go to the found option, use it to reset the network settings to reset all Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and mobile data settings on the phone.
Some users of Mi Max 2 have encountered network problems, including regular disconnection of data from the mobile network. However, there may be several reasons for this problem, here are a few things that can help you optimize your network connection.
Turn on Airplane mode and wait 30 seconds, then turn off Airplane mode and turn on the network. This will help connect to the nearest cell tower, which may have the best signal.
If you use a thick cover on your Mi Max 2, there is a chance that the cover may reduce signal strength, so we recommend checking the network connection by removing the cover first.
If you’re out of luck, reboot your device by holding down the power key, and then choosing Restart. Wait for the device to reboot, and then check if you are connected to the mobile network.
Finally, the reason may be the lack of mobile towers near you and, unfortunately, for this we have no workaround.
