2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 15+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Premium, high-quality design - 2.5D curved glass at the front and smooth flowing curves round the back, along with a unibody anodized aluminum build
  • The curves at the back and the sleek 7.6mm profile make the Mi Max 2 relatively easier to hold, for a device of this size
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint sensor located at the back
  • This is of course a big phone, so if ease-of-carrying or one-handed use are primary concerns, then you want to look at other options

Display

  • Gigantic 6.44in display - pleasant, bright, viewable in direct sunlight, accurate colors, and excellent viewing angles - you can adjust the contrast levels, and there's also the option to toggle sRGB mode - the large screen is great for viewing video and playing games
  • Amazing battery life - with a giant 5300mAh battery into the chassis - easily lasts 2 days with moderate use - this is tablet-class territory, and the Mi Max 2 is in fact better than most 7-inch tablets when it comes to battery life - the battery combined with the large screen makes for a potent combination, particularly if you're interested in viewing a lot of multimedia content

Software

  • MIUI is a light and clean Android UI, with a lot of customization options
  • Additional software features include a screen shrinker, blue-light filter, built-in video editor in the gallery, scrolling screenshots, and Quick ball to launch apps with ease - all useful stuff

Performance

  • Performance is good and smooth too - powered by the Snapdragon 625 and comes with 4GB of RAM, along with 64GB of storage - does a good job of crunching through everyday tasks (the only place where you'll notice the odd stutter is the most visually demanding games)

Camera

  • Decent rear camera - especially in daylight conditions - takes detailed images, and Auto HDR makes a noticeable difference - the camera is a definite step-up from the first-gen model
  • Decent front camera too, in daylight conditions
  • Both the rear and the front camera, while good in day-light conditions, are not that great in low-light conditions, and in video-recording quality

Audio

  • The dual speaker combination is well done and gets sufficiently loud, without distortion at high volumes

Battery

  • Also has Quick Charge 3.0 over USB-C, allowing you to charge up to 68% of the battery's capacity in just over an hour, or enough juice to last an entire day

More

  • Infrared sensors have been a mainstay on Xiaomi phones for several years now, and that hasn't changed with the Mi Max 2, allowing you to control your TV, air conditioner, or set-top box with the phone
  • On the whole, with a 6.44-inch display and a massive 5300mAh battery, Xiaomi's latest phablet is the ideal device for consuming multimedia on the go, and an excellent option if you are looking for a combined phone-tablet experience, and don't mind carrying around a large device in daily use - it is a portable all-in-one that allows you to comfortably watch videos and movies, play games, and read books on the go
