Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Review

Score: 81.2 / 100

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is a top-notch phone released some years ago, in 2017, packing a huge 6-inches screen, a high performance Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2450 MHz, and 2 cameras, a 12 MP back facing camera and a 5 MP front side camera. We will get a better idea about this cellphone's pros when we get into specific details.

About its body design materials, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is mainly made of Ceramic and Aluminum . Xiaomi appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 6.53 ounces device. This phone is just 0.3 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest phone's category. Though the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 just has 5.98" long, it manages to hold a 6" screen. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is only for sale in black color.

Xiaomi decided to equip this device with a high-tech Octa-Core processing unit speeding at 2.45 GHz, packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 MSM8998 system chip with a big 6 GB of RAM. A key feature of this phone is its astonishing 256 GB internal storage and while it doesn't have a slot for SD memory cards, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without having to worry about how much memory is left.

Xiaomi packed this device with a great 6 inches screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2160 , which makes everything look perfect.

This device is equipped with two cameras, a 12 megapixels back camera and a 5 MP front camera. this device's back camera has an aperture of f/2 so it can capture awesome photographs even in low-light conditions. It is capable of capturing 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 fps, and slow-motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) up to 120 frames per second.

This phone counts with a 3400 mAh inmense Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to evaluate is that this phone's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to lose its charge, although with this big battery you will probably discard this phone before it becomes a real problem.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 counts with Wi-Fi connection (which it can share with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G , the fastest internet connection and the fastest 3G connection type, over HSPA and HSUPA technologies. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 comes with two Nano SIM cards to be able to to use two different carriers or phone lines.

This phone also features a wide range of interesting characteristics as Biometric fingerprint, NFC, Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth cellphones and accessories), GPS Navigation and Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

Xiaomi sells this phone for $ 614, which is not a very good offer for a cellphone this level. No matter if you want it to take tons of photographs, will use it as a gamer cellphone, will use it mostly for social networks or will use this device for work, you will probably love this cellphone.
