Xiaomi CEO, Lei Jun, unveiled the Mi Max 2 back in the month of May. The device boasts a large display and apparently, it is the largest flagship so far, launched by Xiaomi. Check the details below to see whether the mid-range flagship device by Xiaomi is worth its price or not.
Phablets are loved by people who prefer devices for streaming videos, playing games, or even writing and editing documents. One of the benefits of a large screen is the fact that it comes with a huge battery. Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has a refined design, upgraded hardware, better looks, and packs more of a punch in terms of price than its precursor the Mi Max, as reported by Gazette Review.
Xiaomi, in the Mi Max 2, has kept the same humongous 6.44" LCD panel with Full HD resolution as the predecessor Mi Max but surprisingly comes with wider side bezels. The device is a bit heavier too - 211 g instead of 203 g, GSM Arena reported. While the display of the device is more or less the same as its predecessor, the chipset is new but not necessarily faster. Instead of a Snapdragon 650 or 652, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 features a Snapdragon 625.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is packed with 4GB of RAM. The device does a good job of offering a balance between raw processing and power consumption. It might be seen as a step down from the Mi Max's Snapdragon 652, but in reality, it is an outstanding performer especially while multitasking or playing heavy games.
The battery of Xiaomi Mi Max 2 never died before hitting 1.5 days of usage in most of the reviews. Xiaomi claims 11 hours of non-stop gameplay. Xiaomi Mi Max 2 can go from zero to 100 in just 120 minutes with the help of Quick Charge 3.0 feature.
The device also has some cons like it's not easy to pick up, and, without a stand, it's unwieldy to hold and watch videos one-handed. Still, with good processing speed, multitasking features, a bright enough display Xiaomi Mi Max 2 comes just for INR 16,999 ($270), which looks like a nice deal.
