Xiaomi has become a smartphone manufacturer that is sweeping the market of giants with its more intellectual approach. The company’s last year launched Xiaomi Mi Mix was a success for the manufacturer with its stylish look and performance. With the Mi Mix Xiaomi kicks off the bezel-less smartphone in the industry which attracted a huge number of consumers. Now, after Xiaomi the giants including Apple is also pushing the smartphone manufacturing towards bezel-less designs, started with iPhone X. Now, Xiaomi made further improvement in the Mi MIx to launch more enhanced version of the smartphone named Xiaomi Mi MIx 2. We have reviewed the phone and come up with some interesting notes and conclusions for the tech enthusiasts.

Design

The bezel-less Mi Mix 2 comes with a different screen size in its new version. The minimal bezels are embedded to support the large screens of the phone but Mi MIx came with a huge display. This big size was quite a problem for the users to handle the phone with a single hand. Xiaomi reduces the size to 5.99 inch LCD display which is not much shorter to the previous model but improves the handling. Continuing its the smart and sleek designing ideas Xiaomi also made this model a classic example. The ceramic body and shiny back make Mi Mix to grab your attention among other high-end smartphones. The rounded sides and more edgy corners make it look different from its predecessor and also improves the grip.

Hardware

Starting from the display, Mi MIx 2 has the IPS LCD display that covers the 80 percent front of the phone. The 5 MP front camera is given at the bottom corner of the phone by the company. which is the most awkward place for a camera we have seen by far. Moreover, the camera position gives hard time to set the perfect angle for taking selfies as we are to not used to the bottom sided front camera. Mi Mix 2 runs on the strong 835 Snapdragon processor with the 6 GB and 8 GB options at different prices. The Mi Mix 2 lacks the microSD slot but that's not an issue at it comes in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options for the consumers. Mi Mix 2 don't have the audio jack and users need to use the C-type connector for connecting the earphones. There is a 12MP rear camera capable to capture 4K videos with a low light feature. The 3,400 mAh battery of Mi Mix 2 lasts for hours and its USB 3.0 charging recharges the battery in no time.

The Verdict

Honestly, Mi MIx seems to be a fair deal for the users waiting a long time now for smartphone comprising all the specs of a high-end flagship phone. Xiaomi did a pretty good job with phone’s device for maintaining the Mi Mix’s cool image in the market. The phone did well during the performance test there was no lagging or any issue with the display. Switching between the number of apps continuously was smooth and it performed consistently well ever after using for hours continuously.
