Oh boy, have we a lot to say about this beauty of a smartphone. And not only beautiful, but also big, and sporting best specs you can find on a smartphone today. It has some minor things we didn’t like as much, and we’ll mention them in a minute. In the end, it’ll be up to you to decide if they’re a deal breaker. So, Xiaomi has been branching out and offering more smartphones as the time goes. They’ve reached a point where they can offer top of the game, flagship smartphones at literally half the price of competitors.
Okay, let’s see what exactly are Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 specs. We’ll start with the design and the screen, as that’s something that’s evident right away. First of all, it comes in both black and white color. Both are very classic and elegant colors and will fit you accordingly. Furthermore, depending on the model you pick, you can expect front glass, aluminum frame, and a ceramic back. But, if you choose a model with 128 GB internal storage and 8 GB of RAM, you’ll get an all-ceramic phone! How cool is that? Everything is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 technology against scratching and breaking, so you’re safe.
Next on the menu – one of the best features of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2. It’s certainly the screen, you’re right. Now, in the previous Xiaomi Mi Mix model, the screen was 6.4 inches! As you probably know, sometimes less is more, and the newer model sports 5.99-inch screen with 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution. Don’t get discouraged, this is in no way a downgrade. It only allowed for better handling of the phone, and it now fits in your hand as comfortable as can be. The aspect ratio is 18:9, which is something we’re already used to. Just remember, a flagship mobile phone like Samsung Galaxy S8 has an aspect ratio like this, although just a tiny bit longer.
Moving on – it’s time you learn about the main specs of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 that power this beast. We’re glad we can tell you – they’re top-notch, latest peripherals available in 2017. We’re talking an Octa-core processor based on Snapdragon 835 architecture in a combination with Adreno 540 GPU. We already know about this deadly duo, and we can comfortably say, it’s a killer. It provides a stellar performance in our opinion, and as per user reviews, it ran any game you can think of. They’re so good that this phone is up to par with current flagships like Samsung Galaxy S8+ and LG G6.
And you know what’s the best part? It’s literally half the cost, with a price of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 being only $575. And that brings us to the slightly complicated part. You see, the company doesn’t actually make smartphones and other technology for American and European markets. That’s why you can’t actually find any of them on Amazon unless someone bought them and is reselling. Don’t worry – you can still use it in America, it’s just that you’d have to import it yourself. There are a lot of websites that sell it, and you’ll have to pay customs only which can cost quite a bit. Even with the added cost, it will still be cheaper than the flagship mobile phones today.
I just received my device, and I'm so happy. Yes, I did have to import it and wait a week, but it's finally here. Even with the customs price, it did not exceed the price of some other flagship smartphones. Other than that, it fits in my small hands comfortably, which is something I was afraid of. The screen is pretty big, and videos are sharp on it. Everything runs extremely fast, and I'm only waiting for Android 8.0 upgrade, I hope it will be soon. The camera is a bit weak in my opinion, that's the only bad thing.
