Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Design and Display

As Xiaomi portray its Mi Mix series more of an example of art, it surely delivers a mind pleasing look. Mi Mix 2S follows the similar path like its predecessor and have ceramic body curved at all the four sides. The company has already made Mix 2 bezel-less but the lesser body to screen ration makes 2S look more delicately bigger. There is a 7000 series aluminum frame with almost no bezel along with an 18K gold coating on the camera. The phone has a 5.99-inch display that delivers the 1080p resolution. Along with this, there is a perfectly shaped circular fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone. 

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s Camera 

You just need to flip the phone to experience one of the most intellectually crafted smartphone cameras. The dual camera lens is pinned at the back divided by a LED flashlight mounted in between them. The 12 MP dual camera have been folded among two lenses to provide ‘wide-angle’ and ‘telephoto’ capability by different lenses for each functionality. This helps in acquiring the Zooming feature and also allows the lens to measure the depth while capturing the images. Along with this,  Xiaomi also offers the bokeh effect to blur the background object for sharp images. Comparing to other available smartphones with same camera configuration Mi Mix 2S is capable of capturing larger pixels. The hardware and high tech sensors integration are done by the company also enable the Mix 2S to take best shots even in the dark. There is 5MP front facing camera that didn't perform well compared to the rear camera due to its location.  

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s Specifications 

In order to make sure that Mi Mix 2S stands still against Samsung’s high-end smartphones, Xiaomi made a powerful competitor. The devices use Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that is being powered by 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Mi Mix 2S has become the first Chinese smartphone to offer this configuration in the market. In addition to this, there is a 3,400 mAh battery with quick charging support that will keep alive the for a long time. You won't find any 3.5mm jack instead there is USB-C type available for audio output. Moreover, Xiaomi has gone wireless in the charging with Qi charging support and the device only takes 2 hours and 40 minutes to charge completely. Mi Mix 2S runs on Xiaomi's MIUI 9.0 interface over Android and delivers a smooth experience without any hassle. 

The Verdict

The experience with Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S was quite impressive, the camera performance is outstanding. Powerful processor makes it feel like you are working on a super fast computer. Mi Mix 2S comes at half of the iPhone X’s price and offers 8BG RAM and 128GB storage that’s unrivaled. However, the location of the front camera produces inferences in the overall experience of the phone.
