Xiaomi watns to optimize battery life by using the SD625 yet being able to perform more, in real-life performance, 650 does not differ that much from 625 when it comes to gaming and daily usage. Xiaomi is just being optimal on their choice for people who wants longer battery life since a 6.44" 1080 x 1920 screen can drain your battery with ease and don't forget that the Nougat is a buttery sucker.
Just because the didn't name it tablet doesn't make it not tablet, it's a tablet
Are you really sure Mi Max 2 has NFC chip? There is no mention of NFC in Mi Official Website!
Hopefully mi max 2 prime comes with snapdragon 660 (even 630 would be great) but until then I won't buy this phone
I'm very happy (using first MM) but when i see those specs i just went speechless... This goddess deserves to slap a SD660 inside.. 625 is just lame.
I'm MI Max owner. If MI Max 2 had 660 I would bought it for sure. Now it's a pass unless another variant with 660 will be introduced. Dumb decision.
Why not make it a world wide band phone, with 1,2,3,4,5 etc LTE bands avalaible??? Why only 1,3,5??
Redopolis, 26 May 2017Chinese love it for some reason. they have bad taste in general. Not at all, I'm latin american and I love this phone. I have the Mi Max 1 and the bigger screen is not a problem if it is for media playing or documents, it takes the reference from the Sony Xperia Z Ultra that I also had, but it improved the battery and the size . It is not made for everyone, but they care for the few ones that are not OK with 5inch display. The S625 is the only con for me, I'll wait for the reviews to see if it is worth the upgrade.
Disappointed with Snapdragon 625 AP. It is inferior performance AP to SD 650/652 AP, which is used in the previous model Mi Max. I think that Mi Max 2 should have used SD660 AP. If so, it would have been very strong contender and cost-performance leader in mid-range phablet market segment. I expect that Xiaomi will soon introduce similar phablet with new 660 AP as MI Max 2 Prime or something like that. So I will wait for it.

I mean its same as Redmi note 4 with bigger battery and screen. At least they could have gone for 626. I don't think 660 is coming and even if its coming its months away..
Cons for me are : 625 chip and the white boring front colour. (why not the gold front just like in some of the intro commercials)
I'll wait until 660 and other colours are available.
The white front and gold back combo is so aesthetically pleasing ... NOT
SD 625, Seriously?? and 506? This is not even mid range.. Such weak processing power. Apart from Massive battery there is nothing in this phone. Its a DUD..
