I recently bought this phone. I also own Mi 5s and is a former owner of 5s Plus. I would say that the design and build quality of Mi Note 2 is fantastic and better than 5s Plus. However, at least for my taste, the 5s Plus has the much better screen. The pentile arrangement is clearly visible on the Note 2 and looks really bad, especially on low brightness. The camera is above average in good light but bad in low light. On 5s and 5s plus it is possible to install the ported google camera to improve low light performance, however, this app does not work on Note 2. Battery life is good on Mi Note 2 but better on 5s Plus. The sound quality and speaker is however better on Mi Note 2 compared to 5s Plus. All in all, I would say that 5s Plus is the better buy, however if you give high priority to good looks I would go for Mi Note 2. BTW performance of Mi Note 2 using the latest Xiaomi EU rom is mind-blowing, it is stupid fast.

veganabobs, 30 Aug 2017mi mix or mi note 2 ? which one ? any advice ?As far as I know both models are still running Android Marshmallow with no Oreo coming in the near future.
Do consider that before spending a considerable amount of money on a high end Xiaomi phone.

duck, 18 Sep 2017Mi Note 3 is way better than this. Yeah because SD 660 is faster than SD 821. Also, no headphone jack is better than with headphone jack, and lower battery capacity is better than, oh i dunno, higher capacity right? smh...
Mi Note 2 is more powerful and has bigger display than Note 3. Yesterday got for 340$ on ali )
mi note 2 is better than mi note 3 and mi mix 2 wth xiaomi think ?
I use this phone for 2 month, it's a great phone IMO. Gaming performance is so smooth and fast, Curved screen looking good and feel great, back camera is average (I hope woth new MIUI update it will be better), but front camera it's very good for selfie... And yes, like other device if you want buy one, make sure it's wont have a defect (especially screen).
I do have Note 2 for several month now.
But It is two - three months now that it lives his own life, it restarts by it-selves, it hangs and I should force reboot.
I do not know how to fix it and it is 600 eu phone.
It has android version 6.0.1 MXB48T, MIUI Global 8.2 Stable (22.214.171.124 MADMIDL).
Please anyone that can help me?
herbhern, 12 Aug 2017i am torn between these three mi max 2 mi mix mi note 2 any advise?If you are not on budget, definitely take the mix, simply because how it looks. But I gotta tell you that mi note2 is the only one among these three that offers a global version.
