Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S review

 

A highly desirable, reasonably priced, speedy smartphone that makes a few compromises.

Speedy performance ; Decent battery life ; Classy design ; Dual camera ; Great value

Software stability issues ; Camera poor in low light ; Average display

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is beautifully-crafted, powerful smartphone with a decent camera, but it does come with strings attached. Most people simply won’t be willing to import the phone from China, so we don’t expect to see many of them around.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Review: Fantastic Overall Value

 

Xiaomi has been a vendor we've been working with for a few years now, but never got to the point where we really wrote an in-depth article on. Today as the company is eyeing on going public with an IPO in Hong Kong and an ever increasing advance on...

Overall Xiaomi offers a great product, while not perfect in every aspect, it also doesn’t have any immediate deal breakers that I would say would put it out of consideration for buyers. The screen is one thing that’s subjective and if you have the...

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S review: The flagship and the folly

 

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is a phone that's as exciting as it is mystifying. The trim-bezel design and considerable power on board are great to behold for

Oodles of power on tap ; Distinctive ultra-trim bezel design ; Half the price of a competitive flagship ; Fairly good dual camera arrangement too

Screen lacks vibrance ; Auto-brightness is overzealous ; Poor sound (and no 3.5mm jack) ; Bad camera placement ; Software not secure so no Google Pay/contacless payments

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is a phone that's as exciting as it is mystifying. The trim-bezel design and considerable power on board are great to behold for its price, yet the so-so screen and sometimes problematic software are just two of a handful of...

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s Review

 

The Mi Mix 2s is the newest phone in the Mix series. For those who are not familiar with Xiaomi's product lineup, the Mix series of phones is its boldest and most innovative, known to have the trendy bezel-less design years before other phone makers...

Impressive, clean, stylish design ; Excellent-quality LCD screen without a notch ; Great implementation of gesture navigation ; Fast performance, phone does not heat up ; Many useful advanced settings in MIUI, great for power users and tweakers ;...

Default MIUI theme has somewhat bland looks, icons don’t look great ; Interface and settings menu takes some getting used to, things are hard to find ; Devilishly slippery ; Not water-proof ; Loudspeaker not bad, but not quite flagship-grade ; You have...

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S review: What every brand should copy | AndroidPIT

 

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S is a smartphone that's bezel-less on three sides, without a notch, and with top technical features. It's an evolution of the previous model more than a revolution, but the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S was still able to amaze me. How did it do...

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S is an excellent device with an almost unbeatable value for money. The smartphone’s main competitor will be the OnePlus 6 with its notch and the Honor 10. The design of the MIX 2S is enviable due to its high quality materials and...

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S Review: Weird and Occasionally Wonderful

 

There's a lot to like about the Mi Mix 2S. While the greatest minds at other phone makers are busy aping the iPhone X's notch, Xiaomi set down its own path. This is one of the prettiest handsets of the year thus far and likely will remain in that...

Gorgeous ceramic design ; Excellent performance ; Support for GSM carriers

Hit-or-miss cameras ; Not available in U.S. ; Middling display

Xiaomi's gorgeous, nearly bezel-free Mi Mix 2S is a sight to behold, and it works on U.S. networks. But is it worth importing?

Xiaomi launches Mi Mix 2S with dual cameras, slim bezels, flagship specs

 

These days nearly every phone maker has a flagship model with bezels so slim that it seems like the front of the phone is nearly all-screen. But Xiaomi's was one of the first when it launched in 2016… and it still has an eye-catching design thanks to...

Xiaomi will offer three different configurations when the phone goes on sale in April:

Test du Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S : le smartphone atypique qui peine à faire illusion

 

Avec son design aussi original que premium et une fiche technique solide, le Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S a tout d'un grand. Vendu à partir de 500 euros, peut-il vraiment rivaliser avec la concurrence ?

Un très beau smartphone au design original ; La recharge sans fil et rapide

Pas toujours très fluide ; Le placement du capteur avant pas pris en compte dans certaines applications ; Pas de prise jack ; La mauvaise gestion de la lumière de l'appareil photo

Le Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S est un très bel objet, atypique par son choix de design. Impossible de rester insensible face à l’effet waouh qu’il procure au premier coup d’oeil. Peu de smartphones de 2018 peuvent se targuer d’en faire autant. Pour ceux qui...
