Yet ANOTHER Xiaomi phone with a SD 625.. Groannnnn...
With a battery north of 4000 MAH, battery life was never a concern with the original max and neither should it be of concern in the Max 2. A couple of hours more of battery life in lieu of 2 times the graphics and CPU performance. IS that a worthwhile tradeoff?
It is evidently a cost based decision to use a lower range chipset and nothing else. The whole USP of the Note and Max series was performance, big screen and durability at a great price.
Theyve gone backwards. Never underestimate the importance of a good chipset in terms of the overall usability of the phone. I would take a SD 660 + 3 GB RAM over an SD 625 with even 6 GB RAM if given a choice. It does make a difference.
Im just waiting for LG V 30.. i lost my trust in samsung note8.. i dont like the samsung design.. maybe this will be my next phone.. looks nice in actual unit.
Awesome phone. Have it for almost a month and it is worth the price. Love the battery life, performance without lagging and heating unlike others. Playing Mobile Legends (10 - 15 games per day), NBA 2k17 (Career mode 3 - 5 games per day), FB messenger call and even watching a couple of movies in Netflix before battery drains. Camera is also awesome (just turn the HDR = ON always).
Sony Fanboy Bitches, 19 Aug 2017Damn, 126h Endurance Rating. How I wish my Zenfone Max has gotten 1080p display and SD625.......I'm intrigued as to why a Sony fan is not using a premium Sony phone with its advanced technologies but an out-of-date Zenfone.
Without Amoled Display Battery Rating 21hrs For Videos...... Really Awesome If U Want Tab Like Phones :)
Ι was a Note guy until l gave the Max a try. Excellent piece of machinery. The Max 2 seemed like a let-down on paper but after owning it for a couple of months it is awesome. It turned me into a Xiaomi fan.
It's worth mentioning that almost all xiaomi phones powered by Qualcomm SOCs with dedicated micro SD card slots equipped, are now coming with exFAT format support. Xiaomi announced in March via its official MIUI weibo account that they had resolved patent issue with Microsoft regarding exFAT support.
It means Xiaomi Max 2, Xiaomi Note 2, Xiaomi 5X, Redmi Note 4/4X (Snapdragon 625 variant) now all support exFAT format external storage.
Devices that don't have expandable Micro SD card slots such as Mi Mix, Mi 6, Mi 5, Mi 5S, Mi 5S Plus, Xiaomi's in-house Pine Core S1 SoC powered Mi 5C, as well as MTK powered Remi Note 4/4X (MT6797 X20) and Mi Pad 3 (MT8176) DO NOT support exFAT external storage.
I personally tested all devices mentioned on both MIUI 8 and MIUI 9 platforms.

Dear GSM Arena staff,
Probably the 6th time that I request you for a "Message to Editor" Tab on every article you publish.
Since when did MiMax 2 come with f1.8 lens? And what is quick charting??
Its ok to make mistakes, but at least have a method to let readers help you, please...
Between this and Lenovo P2, people are spoilt of choices.
Max 2 for larger screen, slightly better camera.
P2 for smaller body, AMOLED screen, and even longer battery life.
Anyway, good review ;)
I think you should've mentioned that even the "global" version lacks B20. It's kind of a big deal for europeans.
Wow Im really surprised to see its powerful battery endurance ... Specially Playing Youtube video's are real fun on it ,,, Camera is little better then average but not found superb ... but other specification are very good in low price ... My dad needs a phone with big screen and display with powerful battery for you-tube video's and this is an ideal phone for him ...
we will definitely try this ... Thumbs up Xiaomi MiMax2
