Mi mix 2 honest opinions bezel less beast but is it worth it???

Mi mix 2 saw a Chinese release earlier, but today it had a Indian launch today. Xiaomi is following one flagship a year policy in India and I strongly feel that Mi 6 had to be there but it didn’t instead they are releasing the Mi mix 2.
             Mi Mix released last year was a concept phone and didn’t have any mass production for the global market. But that had a greater impact on other phones releasing this year. You can see 2017 and leas bezels were the way to go for all the smartphone companies.

Mi mix 2 specifications
Mi mix 2 has a 5.99 inch display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and also has a 6 or 8 gb ram configuration with a ceramic back which is a fingerprint back.
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor with adreno 540 GPU with Mi Ui 9 on top of android 7.1 nougat.
The phone has a 12mp camera with f2.0 with phase detection autofocus , 4 axis stabilisation, dual LED dual tone flash.The rear camera is 5mp with f2.0
The phone has a rear mounted fingerprint scanner. Accelerometer, ,proximity, Gyroscope, Barometer, compass. The phone comes with 6/64 6/128 8/128 option. It has bluetooth 5.0, USB type C charging with quick charge 3.0 and also has a 3400 mah battery. The phone comes in two colours Black and white.

What are the deal breakers
Xiaomi has captured the budget segment and the mid range segment no doubt about that this is a phone with flagship specification and price. So the competition from LG, Samsung, Oneplus is heating up there are certain disadvantages which can even change your buying decisions that are as follows
• No headphone jack: Well it’s been a year of connector world most of the phones skip now a days so if you are a audio file guy this phone is not for you
• The phone has a bottom facing front 5 mp camera the position is so awkward in any angle the photo is taken you feel something is missing and its no where near the competition
• No front firing speakers like the Pixel 2 it has a speaker which is loud but you don’t get a surround sound effect.
• The phone has an adequate internal storage which is minimum of 64 gb but if you want to expand you can’t as most of the mi phones.
• The main reason of a phone is to make calls how much features we have will go in the wind if you don’t have a good call quality. Mi mix suffered in this aspect, but they have improved here but personally I feel the call quality is not crisp for this price segment
So that was a quick overview of the phone, yes I agree the phone looks cool and has a 83% screen to body ratio while the competition like pixel 2 has only 76% but they have utilised the space with front firing speakers.
Look at the LG V30 it has a full vision display but see the phone has a quad dac and it has the best audio listening experience through headphones.
Samsung Note 8 has the best display in any smartphone and has S pen support.

Its not only about creating a bezel less design but must also have a distinct feature to stand out of the competition. Its always good to have a thick phone to have all the essential features rather than a slim phone and have missing features
So I really feel that Mi mix 2 is not perfect as well as the camera quality is also average as all Xiaomi phones are facing this problem. In natural light the camera performs well but phone suffers from indoor lighting or low light. And the f2.0 sensor does not help either while other companies are going with f1.6. So I still feel Oneplus 5 is a better phone on this price range.
No sugar coating guys I really love Xiaomi phones and I think Mi 6 was a better phone than the Mi mix 2 which should have come to India. This is my honest opinion
What do you think guys….. Will you buy the phone or waiting for some other phone. Do let me know your comments are always valuable and keep me motivated to bring you unbiased review.
