Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Review – A Top-Tier Phone with Half the Price
Xiaomi Malaysia has released a successor to the highly-acclaimed Xiaomi Mi Mix, known simply as the Mi Mix 2. This phone is credited to be the first phone from Xiaomi Malaysia to introduce the bezel-less trend that is seen on the latest high-end smartphones today. Apart from having a bezel-less design, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 offers a flurry of other features which makes it a high-end phone without the expensive price tag.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Design and Build Quality
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 scores top marks in terms of aesthetics. The phone has a premium look and feel that make it stand out compared to other models in this price bracket. Many of the design cues from the original Mi Mix have been retained on this phone, except that the latter is shorter, narrower, and thinner, which makes it easier to hold in the hand. The overall visual appeal of this Xiaomi phone is heightened by its scratch-resistant ceramic back that is reinforced by an aluminium frame.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Display
The defining feature of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is its display. Xiaomi has done a good job fitting in the massive 5.99-inch display while keeping the phone at a manageable size. This Redmi phone comes with a 1,080 x 2,160p resolution that translates to accurate colour reproduction and sharp image quality, making it a great option for users who like to play games or watch movies on the mobile phones. The screen also provides enough brightness to ensure that it remains visible outdoors under the glaring sun without a problem.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Specifications and Internal Hardware
With a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 at the helm, the Mi Mix 2 is blessed with blistering performance. The powerful chipset is supported by either 6GB or 8GB RAM that are available at different price points. There are three internal storage variants to select from – 64GB, 128GB or 256GB but you will need to choose wisely as the lack of a microSD slot means that you won’t be able to expand the storage further. This combination of specifications enables the phone to handle any tasks you throw at it with ease. App-switching is fast and lag-free while intensive games and HD videos run on the device without slowing down its performance.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Battery Life
The Mi Mix 2 sports a 3,400mAh battery that provides enough stamina for the phone to get through an entire day of usage on a single charge. As this Xiaomi phone supports the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, it only needs just over an hour to be recharged up to 85%.
