We got the Xiaomi Mix 2 from GearBest, and would like to have a short review on it.

Design & Display

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 sports a ceramic finish, and available on Black and White editions. It’s thinner, smaller and lighter than its predecessor Mix. Additionally, it’s improved its design with rounded corners and sides, aluminium alloy frame and a ceramic cover which looks more premium. As many bezel-less smartphone, Mix 2 also use in-screen buttons, and has the selfie camera on the bottom edge of the device. On the rear side, there is a rear camera with dual tone flash and the fingerprint sensor. In addition, just like many new smartphones in the market, the Mi Mix 2 didn’t come with a headphone jack.

Configuration & Performance

The Mi Mix 2 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset and Adreno 540 GPU, along with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB, 128 GB, or 256 GB of built-in storage (ROM). It’s no micro SD slot, thus dosen’t support to expand the storage with microSD card. It is powered by a non-removable 3,400 mAh battery, and comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 runs on Xiaomi’s MIUI 9 OS which is the next version of their UI.

Camera

The Xiaomi Mix 2 has a 5.0MP front-facing camera integrated into the bottom panel. Thus, as most bezel-less smartphone, you have to hold the phone upside-down for selfies. The rear-facing camera is not as expected as a dual camera. It just a 12MP camera but pairs it with a single f/2.0 lens.
