What a massive downgrade!
Mi Mix's centerpeice is the screen, so from 6.4 inches they downgraded to 5.5 inches all so that to use Samsung's panels. Some would say that the screen 6.2 inches, but know it is actually 5.5 or rather a bit less because that is what moat apps use.
Basically they turn the most bezeless phone of 2016 into the most bezeled phone of 2017. Yes bezels are not made of plastic, they are made of screen, but they are still bezels as you can't use those parts of the screen...
Ultra wide, along with sealed batteries is one more terrible step back from Samsung that should die a horrible death... unfortunately Samsung is a trend setter these days, so expect the phone undustry to make another step back for the foresseable future. First clear victim, the mi mix series which turned from awesome to ... awkward.

If they switch to stock say bye bye to updates for years and years. The ohones would lose one of their main sale points (Xiaomi is the only company apart from apples that upgrades her flagships for 3+ years).
Miui is not for everybody, but believe it or not it is one of their strong points.

Those MI MIZ 2 teasers are so funny..dead...big exaggeration but love it
Harrison Wells, 04 Sep 2017That's pretty cool that Xiaomi may have paved the way for many of the flagship phones this yea... moreDont know why people are crawing for waterproofing.
Been using the cell phones since 1999,and never ever had a need or wish for waterproof phone.And I am very clumsy person by default :)
Rain obviously isnt the reason(as in almost 20 years with over dozen of phones,never had a problem with that),trowing the phones into the toilet isn't my thing either... so for the love of God I cant understand why people are even asking for such a feature,even less when they buy a phone based on that?!?

I hope they will release stock-android only version (without MIUI) as well. It they do that it would be a hit.
This is the only phone left for me to choose this year, as the V30 got too expensive. Pixel2 is still ugly design with an Apple price tag.
Hope they will be planning to bring mix 2 in India. They are everytime omatting flagship phones in Indian market.
I think 18:9 (2:1) 6 inch screen size is the perfect balance between height and width.

Dear Xiaomi, if you are visiting this site, please, PLEASE, look how big demand of lte 20 band! Actually, I don't understand why you officially selling your phones in my country without support of this band.
