2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Absolutely stunning edge-to-edge screen design - arguably one of the best designed Android phones ever - it's the kind of phone that you will recognise from 10 feet away
  • The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 not only stuns with its screen, but with the way it looks and feels all around - the frame is metal with curved corners for better hand-feel and rigidity, while the back is a solid slab of beautiful ceramic
  • The fingerprint reader works reliably and is fast - its center-stage position on the back is also quite functional
  • The bezel-less design means you get a 6-inch screen in a phone that’s the same size as the OnePlus 5, which has a 5.5-inch screen - making for a device that is a pleasure to use on a day-to-day basis
  • On the whole, this is high screen-to-body ratio executed very well
  • MIUI on top of Android is clean, feature-filled, relatively secure, plus it has an excellent theme engine
  • Another positive with the MIUI ecosystem is that the software is constantly updated and refined
  • Powerful, top-end hardware - Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, and 6GB of RAM ensure flagship-grade, lightening quick performance throughout
  • Good set of rear and front cameras - whether its colour, detail, sharpness or composure, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is competent (even though not exceptional), and takes good pictures that check all the basic boxes - in good light as well as low light
  • Decent audio quality via both headphones and speakers
  • Good battery life - you will consistently get a full work day of usage
  • Support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 means that battery recharging is also quick
  • Also worth noting is that the phone has almost universal band support, which means that it’ll work with networks anywhere in the world
  • On the whole, the Mi Mix 2 is a phone that catches your eye, it’s a phone that lets you enjoy the big screen experience without feeling like a big phone, it’s a phone that feels good in your hands, it’s a phone that stands out in a crowd, and has people stop to ask you questions - and it's also a sign of Xiaomi growing up to now compete (and compete well) in the flagship category too
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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 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)
  • 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
  • The dual speaker combination is well done and gets sufficiently loud, without distortion at high volumes
  • 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
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The display looks brilliant because of the bezel-less design, but is otherwise, in terms of quality, not anything special - both viewing angles, and brightness levels are a notch below Samsung/LG/Apple flagships
  • The front camera position at the bottom right corner of the phone is awkward and will take time getting used to
  • The cameras are good but nothing special - the rear camera lacks the dual camera setup for bokeh effects that's the flavour of the season among other flagships - as a result, you’ll find the camera app a bit bare-bones in terms of features - overall, it doesn’t quite have the capability of the top camera phones in this price bracket - the OnePlus 5 or Honor 8 Pro
  • There’s also no 3.5mm jack, so audio enthusiasts might be a bit disappointed, although you do get a 3.5mm-to-Type C adapter in the box
  • 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
  • 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
