The selling point is presumably the screen-to-body ratio, but the thing that strikes me is that it is just fractionally larger than the LG V30 in every direction for the same size screen. This is cheaper, of course, but then the LG does offer a higher-resolution screen, an SD slot, headphone jack, IP rating, doesn't have MIUI (may be a matter of taste) and in many countries may have better warranty support. And its symmetric design means the front camera isn't stuck in a weird place.
So while the original Mi Mix was an attention-grabbing novelty, this follow-up, while fixing some of the problems of the original (more sensible earpiece, more manageable size) also just by being more mainstream becomes more comparable to other devices, and doesn't perhaps quite stand up against the most direct competitors.
preorz, 14 Sep 2017I just can't understand you ppl... Xiaomi presented to you not "Best in the world" smartphone ... moreSome people like myself read this section for the purpose of being able to make a buying decision
Unfortunately, it really says "opinions" rather than "reviews"
Shiatty mind will always produce shiatty comments
But totally agree with you
Why would someone say they like iPhone X instead
It's just not comparable
I own Note 8 but I still think this could be a great phone
Personally, I need a 2nd phone
But, if I were still in high school (or stuck with high school mentality), then yes, of course, I might as well biatch about this phone's not good as this, or that
Since life's a biatch, right
If you don't like the phone, then compare it with the phone you "truly own"
But comparisons must be fair
apple to apple
Why don't you go to the iPX forum instead and say : I like this phone so much, it's better than XMM2
I just can't understand you ppl... Xiaomi presented to you not "Best in the world" smartphone but they presented to you really good device (in my opinion). It's bezelles, have top processor (among the dragons) and etc. It can't satisfy all your requests. But you want more and MORE for the really nice price. It's strange that you do not blame him for not being transform into a scooter. If you don't like it... ok. But people need constructive information, not comments like "Xiaomi dumb sh@t, i like Iphone XXX" or "I prefer sumsung then this china ... !" and etc.
I apologize for off topic, but I'm tired of reading useless nagging.
btw, device is really nice. They reduced the screen and, therefore, the overall dimensions. Its really good for most people.
IPS screen with 403ppi.. Well, not the worst panel and most people stop seeing the difference at 350 ppi.
Not the best camera on the market but it is quite enough for everyday tasks.
They removed the headphone jack .. ok for mp3 music the BT headphones are quite suitable, and listening on such phones is a bit stupid.
I don't use a front camera, so I can't say anything about this.
And one more thing: It really more bezelles than first gen. It looks like that because the aluminum frame has a convex shape.
Waiting for Elephone and Doogee to come out a similar version with SDcard slot

Both cost about 200-220 eur have stats and specs which makes you satsfied for long enough and 10000 mAh battery which can work as powerbank as well.

Every time I flash different rom and fully wipe device I still have everything I need on SD card. Ambled display is not about just beauty it is about features you can have on it like ambient display etc. That is one feature I can not be without. Battery size is always important to me. 7.6 mm tick phone with 1.5 mm camera bump is silly. Just even up that space with battery. More juice is always better. 9 mnm phone is just fine, that 1.5 mm is not really that huge. Also LTE band 66 is needed for my provider. That is really to bad.
low screen resolution. this is high series not mid series. xiaomi now is bad
Are you sure it comes with MIUI 9? Or just can be upgraded to MIUI9? Just found it with MIUI 8 from http://www.androidmall.co.uk/xiaomi-mi-mix-2.html
The screen to body ratip mentioned is 80 which i think is wrong. it is easily more than 85
7.7, 13 Sep 2017For $500 USD the only other phone close to this in price and specs are the Mi6 and OnePlus 5Agree but these cowards needs milion things in every device and by the way they wont buy it anyway because it will be ridicuklously expensive.

Oled display its just a thing to waste money. With or without the differences for naked eye are minimal. Its a waste of money. 3400 mAh is also good enough. Bigger battery makes phone more thick and difficult to carry in pockets especialy when is 6 inch wide.
I thonk i said everything.

an advice for who like a large percent of screnn to body
do not waste your money for this
with 400$ you can buy a phone from amazon website whose release first in store(SHARP AQUOS S2)
before release Essential PH-1 & IPHONE X
PH-1 from the front look like to aquos s2
IPHONE X from the front look like to S2. also the place of double camera of iphone x its look like to AQUOS S2
For real owners, hopefully soon, can you please share your experience on
the internet browsing/download/streaming speed
and call quality
Thanks in advance
Would like to see speed test comparison OP5 vs XMM2
Iphone X is more bezelless compare to Mi Mix 2. For me this year Xiaomi phone really make me dissapointed. I like Xiaomi last year phone than this year. Downgrading phone specs from its predecessor from its series is real deal breaker to me.
davidtb, 12 Sep 2017nuttin' US?The Mi Mix 2 is supposed to support more LTE bands than its predecessor.
