Introducing the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, the underdog of the tech game. Xiaomi is prepared to brake boundaries and smash records, and we’ve tagged them as “smartphone disrupters.”
When we buy most of the time, we prefer to shop by brand and not specs. Most people seem to have a preferred brand, whilst only a few would take the risk of trying out something new. I don’t think any of the two are wrong, but if I were to pick sides- I’d go for the risk takers. This is because their reward is great.
Mi Mix 2 against the best
Xiaomi just renewed the hope of the risk takers with the new Mi Mix 2, reminding us that at the end of the day it boils down to the tech and not the name. Brand names have cost the world a lot, e.g. The iPhone X costs a kidney and everybody knows that this is only because of the Apple logo behind it, because the tech is not even a generation away from what we already have.
Anyway, let’s get to the business of today. The Xiaomi Mi Mix2 is ranked 5th in the Phablet section —ranked higher than the iPhone8 Plus and Huawei Mate 9, this is the case because it really is a brilliant phone. Not just a brilliant phone but very affordable costing almost half the price of it’s closest competitor.
The Tech Specs:
The phone processes your life with its awesome Snapdragon 835, and backs it with an access Memory of 6GB. And if you think that’s not cool enough, you’ll be shocked to know that; your memories are captured with a 12MP (Sony IMX 386) camera, and relived with a 5.9-inch 18:9 IPS LCD 2160 x 1080 (403ppi) display.
For the sceptic; you know quality when you hear the words Corning Gorilla Glass 4 thrown around the table. You also know a treat when somebody mentions a aluminum frame and ceramic back.
