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
Excellent job by Xiaomi, not many phones are good at everything, especially at this price, but this one is! Good battery, good display, good speakers, good camera, no overheating,
I'm buying one next week, thanks for the review (And thanks to the review lol)!
Xiaomi nailed the screen with the battery life
Of course whoever own this phone will be binge watching YouTube or any streaming services with that big screen
Damn, 126h Endurance Rating.
How I wish my Zenfone Max has gotten 1080p display and SD625.......
I'm glad i sold my mi max 1 and ordered mi max 2.
man i loved my mi max 1 so much,i hope i will enjoy mi max 2,awesome phone!
