Last month, China’s biggest mobile phone player launched its second generation Mix Max phone - the Xiaomi Mi Max 2. This phone is the successor of the Xiaomi Mi Max, a phone which had received rave reviews from the public. At that time, the device only came with one color option which is the gold variant. It was quite disappointing for many customers, especially those who prefer a different shade to their Xiaomi phone. The gold variant wasn’t really everyone’s favorite flavor, thus affected the phone’s appeal to consumers.
There were rumors circulating on the web regarding Xiaomi launching the Mi 6 Plus alongside the Mi 6 but that didn’t happen. Not to mention, leaks associated with the Mi 6 Plus waned after the Mi 6’s release in April. Fortunately, these leaks have surfaced again online, giving Xiaomi fans hope of a launch soon.

Smartphone brands from mainland China have never ceased to amaze us. Whether it’s a leading flagship device inspired smartphone or their very own brainchild, it cannot be denied that they have successfully defied the logic behind the relationship between price and features. They can easily offer the best of both without batting an eye. The Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is their tablet that's inspired by Apple’s iPad but has the potential to do more.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 may have taken its inspiration from the iPad Mini, however, it was created to do more. The resolution of its display is without a doubt more superior than the device where it’s inspired from. Its 7.9” screen boasts an HD resolution which is twice as much than a standard HD screen. Its display is 1536 x 2048 pixels with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch – one notch higher than the iPad mini’s. There’s really no reason not to love how vivid and pixel-rich the display of this device is. One could easily enjoy this tablet by simply letting the display do its wonders.
Another crowning glory of this tablet is that its powered by an Intel Atom X5 Chipset, which means it’s processing speed is as fast as those Intel-powered computers. Its chipset, on the other hand, houses a Quad-core processor with a speed of 2.24 GHz clocked on every core. There’s really no getting around the fact that it’s a really a lot of processing power that could easily load applications without any hiccups and in a jiffy. To complete the smooth sailing experience, its 2GB RAM will provide enough memory for users to multitask all they want. The great thing about multitasking in Android is that it almost emulates the multitasking experience that we get from desktops computers contrary to iOS devices.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 comes in two variants: 16GB and 64GB. The variant with the bigger storage capacity is only a few bucks more, so it’s best to go for that option in order for you to enjoy the liberty of throwing in more files and apps into your Xiaomi Mi Pad 2.
While most tablet devices on the market today don’t really invest much innovation and pixels into their camera, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 has done otherwise. It takes pride of its outstanding 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, which could snap photos of your most memorable moments anytime, anywhere.
