I own both the Mi Max, and now the Mi Max 2.. The Mi Max 2 performs better than the Mi Max even in gaming... I tested psp emulator and the Mi Max 2 gets around 5-10 fps more than the Mi Max. This is because in Android 7.0 Open Gl 3.0 is supported and helps the gpu in the snap dragon 625. You can search YouTube and see a you-tuber techutopia confirms exactly what I'm saying. He compared both phones side by side. There is no reason to get the Mi Max 1 anymore. Mi Max 2 also gets around 3 hours additional battery with the larger 5300 mah and more efficient cpu.
Please, do a review. I think this is the most exciting device of the year. Would be really nice to see your battery life test results. Your reviews have the highest quality of them all.
AnonD-681796, 18 Jul 2017When the black version will be available? Anyone know that?Only the black version is on sale in India.
Large Phone Puny Chip. Iam good. Well done Xiaomi keep up the good work with the SD 625 which should have never been created in the first place. Darn it if only it had the SD 630 atleast, if the SD 660 is too good to b true. Whoever needs a phone that is weaker than it's predecessor should definitely buy this one.
Bddoc, 16 Jul 2017Bro, From where u bought ? I m also from Bangladesh. ThanksYou can buy from Gadget Generation BD at Bashundhora City Level 5.
Shred4Life, 18 Jul 2017I bought the 128GB version instead of a broken tablet and it works OK. Not as snappy as people... moreHave you tried with the headphone settings in audio options? Can't the quality and loudness be improved? I'm interested in this phone, but audio is important to me. I've heared loudspeaker quality is excellent, but headphone quality (Even if loudness is not that good) must not be a compromise too.
Also, how hot does it get, does it heat up even if you're using a 1/2Amp charger and not the one Xiaomi provides?
Rexpete 51, 15 Jul 2017Does this phone work in Canada? Hope it does ThanksYepp
I bought the 128GB version instead of a broken tablet and it works OK. Not as snappy as people say (landscape mode is sticky), but it is faster than Max 1, little slower than my Sony XA1 Ultra. Battery life is excellent; 2 days of normal usage, 4G is on all the time, whatsapp+skype+firefox+ etc. and still %75 full on second day, really good battery although it gets little hot when charging and under heavy usage. Talk quality is good but I wouldn't recommend for listening music, overall sound is loud but not loud enough or clean enough for my ears, even with a high quality $250 headphone. No annoying bloatware, clean GUI. If ram was 6GB and the resolution was better (i.e.3840 x 2160), this phone would easily beat many others. It is a moderate phone and a mediocre phablet, but price/quality ratio is good as most of Chinese phones so I recommend you to grab one if you catch a good deal somewhere.
Chiku, 17 Jul 2017Which is good btw 64gb vs 128gb varient. All similar but still asking for confirming performance.Its okey but not as good as the mi max which is much better (i have both phones) but the camera is a huge upgrade in the mi max2 comaring to the rubbish mi max camera
I have both mi max and mi max 2 .if you need a better camera the mi max 2 is much better but i still see the mi max much smoother and faster than the mi max 2 .i am using mi max 2 now it still hangs on sometimes and i still can feel how the software is heavy unlike my mi max was extremely super fast so if u are interested in the performance i still see the mi max is much faster and smoother but if u were like me and prefer having a camera that u actuelly can use unlike mi max's bad camera go for the mi max 2
Which is good btw 64gb vs 128gb varient. All similar but still asking for confirming performance.
Bddoc, 16 Jul 2017Bro, From where u bought ? I m also from Bangladesh. ThanksJust got my Mi Max 2 yesterday. The shop already flash to Global ROM (Malaysia) which already have English version. Warranty only under shop. The price in Malaysia is RM 1249. Quite impressive with the powerful battery which last longer compare to my previous samsung.
