Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 First Impressions: More than just a stunning design

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

Xiaomi on Tuesday (10 October) launched its much awaited bezel-less smartphone Mi Mix 2 in India.

Xiaomi will also be available from company's exclusive Mi Home and offline retail stores starting November first week. The highlights of this phone is its 5.99-inch (2160 × 1080 pixels) Full HD Display with 18:9 aspect ratio compared to the 17:7 available on the Mi Mix. The phone is powered by a hefty 3400mAh battery pack.

The device houses 12MP rear camera with dual flash and four-axis Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) to reduce jerks while shooting a video when the camera is in motion, and houses Sony IMX386 sensor.

The MI Mix 2 will be lighter, smaller, and thinner than its predecessor.




The Mi Mix 2 is all about the design and that will be the only selling point of this flagship smartphone. However, that is not to say the phone does not have its fair share of issues.

There are obvious downsides - no IP67 rating (water and dust resistant), MIUI (which quite a few people dislike), has a standard single-lens camera setup and there is no headphone jack or wireless charging - but I'm not going to get into that. The gap is filled by Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, one of the most appealing mobile devices launched in the year 2017. The device offers a black matt finish Aluminium frame with a 4 corner rounded off ceramic back panel (processed for 5 days) making it a unique smartphone. Mi Mix 2 offers more real estate in a compact form factor. Given that most of the users give special attention to the top of the phone, this design change is a welcome move. The front camera placement is however still arguable and will trouble selfie lovers. The fingerprint reader is placed below the rear-facing camera, and it can be easily accessed no matter which hand you use to operate the Mi Mix 2.

Xiaomi has priced the Mi Mix 2 at Rs 35,999 for the 128 GB internal storage and 6 GB RAM variant. Yes, the Xiaomi Mi MiX2 is powered by the Snapdragon 835 and 6GB of RAM. A link for GearBest has also been included down below. The Mi MIX 2 comes with a hidden, sound-guided speaker which delivers sound from the top of the display.

Though many fans swear by Xiaomi's heavily bloated user interface, it can not be denied that it womes with its own set of problems. Xiaomi instead turned its attention to the budget segment, where it fared exceedingly well over the last 12 months.
