Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Review

Score: 9.68/10

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is a top-notch phone released in 2017, packed with a very powerful Octa-Core processing unit clocking at 2450 megahertz, a large 6 inches display, and 2 cameras, a 12 MP back facing camera and a 5 MP front facing camera. Let's take a deeper sight of what this cellphone can give us.

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

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.

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.

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 counts with a 3400 mAh inmense Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours, although you may find yourself looking for a place to charge it after some heavy use. An issue to evaluate is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose capacity, though with so much capacity you will probably discard this cellphone before that becomes an issue.

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.

This cellphone is being sold for around $ 614, which is not a really offer for a cellphone this level. It doesn't matter whether you want it mostly for social networks, want a gaming phone, need a cellphone for work or you love taking photographs, this cellphone is probably a very good choice .
