You can enjoy the 5G feature on the Xiaomi Mi Mix 5G phone if the 5G network is available in your region. However, if your region doesn’t support 5G network, you can also use previous generation networks like 4G or 3G. To know whether your area support 5G network, you can visit your telecom operator’s website or directly consult your telecom operators.

However, the drawback of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G phone is that it just supports NSA (non-independent networking) networking mode, and doesn’t support SA (independent networking) networking mode. As we know, under the NSA network mode, operators will use 4G/5G shared core network to save the network investment, but the disadvantage is that it cannot support some new 5G features such as low delay. In addition, under the NSA network mode, the phone must connect 4G and 5G networks at the same time, so it will lead to a high power consumption.
