No 3.5mm audio jack?? No sd card?? Is it the designers and engineers borrow from Apple?
Xiaomi Mi Mix battery life: 97 hours
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 battery life: 65 hours
Thanks, but NO thanks, but NO thanks !
Received Mi Mix 2(6GB RAM, 128GB ROM) today from FilpCart.
Below is my mini review -
1. Quality of box & its design is very well.
2. Handset is so beautiful, futuristic, performance is butter smooth.
3. Back cover is made of quality plastic material & its necessary as due to slippery Ceramic back material of handset.
4. OS version in MIUI8 build 184.108.40.206(hardening of phone had taken approx >1Hrs, easy to customize & there are various options/settings), now waiting for MIUI9 which will be avaiable on 02-Nov-2017.
5. Battery came with 56% default, used it for gaming, watching movies, browsing(both WiFi & 4G), taken some Photos & Videos, etc, over all have used Mi Mix 2 continuously for approx 5 to 6Hrs still there was 12% battery reaming & with 12% battery remaining, charge time was showing approx 1Hrs.
6. Excellent 5.99Â” IPS screen (can say I am not missing my S5 AMOLED screen), Camera, Speakers, Calling qualities, etc are very good.
7. OMG audio quality is so clear & loud compared to my Samsung S5.
8. Fingerprint sensor is very fast.
Overall very much satisfied with Mi Mix2 & will definitely recommend it.
A giant phone from Chaumi, the first Bacon phone to design a screen without a hue
Xiaomi CEO teased that mi mix2 tri bezel less will hide sides and top bezel when camera is opend is true or just false hype?
every phone review , 1st i looking are battery life. so lousy battery life.
i only can go for phone with 4000mah above and pair with S625 , which can give me survive until 11pm even heavy use. ( not gaming )
The benchmark test for the mix 2 on miui 9 will have a higher result
pramod5774, 25 Oct 2017I think I will never understand why some people want removable battery instead of power banks.... moreThe problem with headphone socket is that 99.7% of headphones uses it or other compatible counterpart (1/4" TRS or 6.35mm jack). Wireless headphones are step sideways, they have been in use since 80s so nothing new or revolutionary. On the other hand the reason why they haven't really made their way out of recording studios (until now) is for all the drawbacks they pose.
Batteries need to be recharged constantly
Transmission and audio quality is poor
Added complexity makes them not quite reliable
Prone to interference
Needs to be paired with a transmitter unit (in our case, bluetooth transmitter), so you can't use them with any device that features standard TRS out.
For stage/studio use where cables really pile up quite fast, this solves monitoring problem for large groups of musicians. But for home/portable use, apart from fixing 'cable' problem (and replacing it with numerous drawbacks), there's really no point.
Not to mention you'll be gravely limited to 0.3% of the market.
Oh, and since Beats and AirPods cannot be easily disassembled, once the batteries get depleted, you're expected to throw them away and buy a new set. That would never happen with wired headphones which can last you 25+years.

Having removable battery is definitely a plus, but the whole of the phone has to be built around that, and since the battery is usually replaced only once every 2 years, moderate disassembly isn't something to die for.
However I agree with you that devs should strive to fit as largest battery to the phone as possible, and this trend is, unfortunately, falling in recent times.
Of course the best phone should feature removable battery with capacity upgrade path, but nothing is quite perfect, so best to just make do with what's available today.

Because that's totally wrong. That's a myth. The non-removable battery does not mean larger battery capacity.
Moreover, the removable battery phones are modular: you can replace the stock battery to a 2x or 3x bigger, larger capacity extended battery. You can't do this with non-removable battery phones.
this feels like a step back from the Mi MIX 1, they where so different yet what we wanted, now I feel like they threw themselves into the bunch. The hardware seems a tiny bit off this time.. I hope with their 3rd try they will stand out again (and be a worldwide version) if not im afraid i'll loose interest, and so will many others. :/

Ok, many like porn so demand of dedicated sd card slot is justified. Many can't afford wireless headphones so headphone jack demand is also justified too. But removable battery ? you want your phone to be least water resistant just for removable battery. .....
Downsizing the screen makes it usable by far more people as the original was too big.
Camera is decent when the original was .... disappointing.
Asking price is around 150$ lower than the original when it was launched.
This one is available compared to the original when it was launched.
Overall a great device I would buy if I didn't have the mi6.
almost perfect if it has:
- IR Blaster
- SD card slot
- Dual rear cam
- 4000 mah+ battery
no buy for me

Replaceable battery is a scarce commodity nowadays, having a "non-removable" has some benefits as you can fit in larger capacities as contact area on the PCB could be minimized by removing the connector pins for removable battery.
Good compromise is having easily accessible non-removable one, such as with Redmi Note 4 - undo the snaps on the back cover and you're literary there.
