For your kind info. In last one year Apple loses 3 cases for Design and patent. So who is actual copy cat people can decide.... Xiaomi is doing its best to compete and on a price that Apple can only imagine of..

The same goes for Galaxy S8/+ and all the fashionphones with 2500-3500mah batteries.
And i agree a phone has to be able to last a day with any usage and that goes especially for flagships. It's utter fail if they can't and currently no flagship can. Only a couple of phones like Mi Max 2.
Zero, 08 Nov 2017Mi Mix 2S? Seriously? Xiaomi already told that there will be only one Mix per year.wahah . . .
Mi Mix 2s ? . .
It's NOT Xiaomi ...... It's Just the Author of this Article (Peter)
Such an Addict Apple Iphone Lover - Putting the Letter S to Any Rumored Upgrade TO the Model Name
That lines " What do you think? Will such a redesign by Xiaomi prove popular or do you like the classic Mix design better?"
Author will just Post any Apple-Like trends without validation
it's very biased .. A Disgrace Article for Xiaomi
I'm Sorry for Xiaomi
Mumbai-Indians, 08 Nov 2017Its seems to be fake (Photoshop of Mi Mix 2), look at the Bezels they are exactly same as Mi M... morewaha .. EASY .. It's a FAKE ONE ....
It's like the vice versa of this Article - How to remove the Notch by GSMA
This is just a Wall Paper that has a Black Notch
BUT DUE TO MI MIX2 is not an AMOLED DISPLAY - (LCD)
You can SEE COMPLETELY that the BLACK SHADE NOTCH is NOT PURE BLACK UNLIKE THE BEZEL
IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY it's a Back-lit BLACK still like most LCD BLACK
GSMA must not ride this Things .. Unless GSMA is gathering Info or Reaction of the CONSUMER for Xiaomi when Xiaomi follow this Design
Someone has just installed the iPhone X notch app on a regular mi mix 2. I don't think this is a new phone just a prankster having some fun,
99% of these comments are cancer. There's no such thing as originality in phone designs, because nothing is original. And both Apple and Android people are thinking this is a big thing.

"Apart from iPhone X and Mi Mix (the original) none can do more than 7 hours of screen on time"
It's simply not true. I can easily get more than 7 hours of S.O.T with the S8 Plus .EASILY!! ... also it very much depends on many factors including signal strengh and what you are using your phone for.
I do agree however that in this day and age we should be getting more S.O.T with the current phones on the market and don't even get me started on sealed in batteries......
Before everyone jumps on the bandwagon and start spouting crap about xiaomi copying. The mimix2 is already out and looks nothing like this?!
iawnaek, 09 Nov 2017I am getting the Mi Mix 2. I don't want no satanic devil horns on my phone!Mi Mix 1 is far better in pretty much anything apart from camera (Mi Mix 2's camera is still bad though). Don't be fooled by the name. It's actual name should of been "Mi Mix Lite" ... as it is the "lite" version of the full featured Mi Mix (1) ...

Aadrian , 09 Nov 2017I like the latest Xiaomi phones especially the Mi Mix line of phones but I think it was Sharp ... moreThey did one in 2014 but nobody followed. Xiaomi started the craze. Also Mi Mix is quite different in most things than Sharp Crystal...
A bit of how Motorolla Atrix was the first to add fingerprint scanner yet it was the Iphone 5s that started the craze.
DamiDev, 09 Nov 2017The MI MIX is a copy of Sharp Crystal (2014) No it's not. Far smaller bezels, piezoelectric speaker (which solves the sound issues of Crystal) rounded *screen*...
It's a far improved version of Sharp crystal, one that solves most of its problems and actually doesn't have an unseemly chin. Most of the bezeless since Mi Mix are actually a step back in function (taller instead of wider, tiny batteries).
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2017How can you say far better then most bezel-less ? Have you tried them all ?
I know at least 3... moreI don't have to. When a phone doesn't make the day it's not a good smartphone for 2017. It's mediocre at best. Apart from iPhone X and Mi Mix (the original) none can do more than 7 hours of screen on time.
I'm sorry I'm not buying a phone that needs charging in the middle of the day, it's twenty freakin seventeen, we do not have to treat smartphones as a luxury with special needs.
Of all the bezeless phones none can muster more than 7 hours screen on time. Only Mi Mix 1 and iPhone X... the only good bezeless phones...
SwaggyP, 08 Nov 2017BTW it did beat Apple. Mi Mix 1 was the best phone from 2016. If you except the camera everyth... moreHow can you say far better then most bezel-less ? Have you tried them all ?
I know at least 3-4 brands that do this MI MIX 1 style phones and from most of them camera sux but otherwise they have good enough hardware to run droid 7. I have one of these and my model is been out for a month or 2 and I already received first update 355mb. When I bought Samsung phone that was out for half a year and then got only one update and even that after a year that it was out. So update wise it looks good that it will get them.
So far with really low usage my phone battery have lasted me 4-5 days and it's only 3000mAh
I can't understand how anyone could think notches or cutouts are a good design idea to follow. Even the narrowest cut into the screen effectively renders the entire height of the notch useless because content can't be reliably displayed in that space - functionally it's the same as filling the whole space with a bezel regardless of how thin the notch is. If you really want to have as much "active" screen space as possible, it would be much more elegant to make a slim top bezel that contains an LG-esque ticker/always on display plus the camera, earpiece etc.
