Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
Xiaomi made a statement in the smartphone industry in 2016 with the production of the Mi Mix, the first commercially available bezel-less smartphone! The Mi Mix 2 is actually an upgrade of the Mi Mix, and as such comes bolder and sleeker. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 comes with an impressive 5.99-inch display screen and is tri-bezel.
The body is all laid ceramics, with shiny metallic sheen only marred by a 12MP camera at the rear and a super-fast finger scanner technology placed just below the camera.
It comes with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 CPU. This coupled with an abundant 8 GB RAM makes the Mi Mix 2 a device with superb performance and can pretty much handle any task thrown at it.
Xiaomi Mi 6
Xiaomi Mi 6 is the flagship of Xiaomi in 2017, and it really was impressive. The Mi 6 comes with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 chipset like the Mi Mix 2 and features an impressive 6 GB RAM. A key statement of the Mi 6 is the impressive 12MP dual camera which features a 2x lossless zoom feature — the very first from the company.
The Mi 6 spec sheet is almost similar to the spec sheet of the Mi Mix 2, and if you’re not sure which to go for, well here’s a little tip: go for the Mi Mix 2 if you are hungry for bezel-less smartphone or go for the Mi 6 if you are looking for good photography since it really takes great pictures.
Xiaomi Mi A1
Xiaomi Mi A1 comes running on unadulterated Android Nougat 7.0. It’s one of those phones considered as the saviour of Google’s Android One project — a program to offer affordable smartphones running on stock Android to the larger population of developing countries at affordable rates.
The Android version of the Mi A1 comes unaltered. Aside from the ‘pure’ Android, Mi A1 also comes with an impressive display screen and is reputed as one of the best photography phones from Xiaomi. On the downside though, the Mi A1 comes with a larger bezel and a moderate 3000mAh battery. The premium iPhone-like design and impressive picture-taking ability are really the sale pitch of this smartphone, otherwise it is similar to the Mi 6 – inner-wise.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2
The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is what its name suggests — the maximum Xiaomi! The Mi Max 2 comes with a massive display screen, impressive hardware sheet, and an excellent battery that will last for a couple of days when fully charged.
First off, the Mi Max 2 comes with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 chipset processor. This coupled with the 4 GB RAM makes the Mi Max 2 a beast for even the heaviest user. The display is impressive — a 6 inch full LCD screen with a 2.5D front glass. If you worry about your smartphone battery life then Xiaomi Mi Max 2 could help put that worry at bay — it comes with a long-lasting 5300mAh battery which can last a couple of days when fully charged even with heavy usage.
No matter what you’re looking for, Xiaomi has something that meets your tastes. Looking for great cameras? The Mi 6 and A1 are your best option. How about long lasting battery life? Well, the 5300mAh of the Mi Max 2 certainly is the largest right now in the market. How about a bezel-less phone with a decent camera? You sure are describing the Mi Mix 2.
