Xiaomi Mi note 2 Full review

Xiaomi rolled out the Mi note 2 alongside the futuristic ngươi Mix, and as a result the phone was overshadowed by its bezel-less sibling. Although it doesn"t have a cantilever piezoelectric driver for making calls, the Mi cảnh báo 2 is plenty capable và is the first from Xiaomi to feature global LTE bands. Và while the dual curves at the front & back make the Mi chú ý 2 look like a Galaxy cảnh báo 7 knockoff, the kiến thiết is an evolution from the original Mi lưu ý which made its debut in 2015.


The Mi chú ý 2 signifies an important step for xiaomi as it looks to maximize revenues in its home market. With the likes of OPPO and Vivo gaining ground in tier 2 và tier 3 cities on the back of a well-connected (and well-funded) retail distribution network, xiaomi mi is looking lớn the mid-range segment to lớn boost profits.

With a generous 6GB of RAM và 128GB storage along with global LTE bands (37 in total), the Mi cảnh báo 2 is the showcase device for Xiaomi"s ambitions, and while the phone isn"t selling in the millions like those in the Redmi series, the goal for mi is to lớn show that it can hold its own in the mid-tier category.

Xiaomi Mi lưu ý 2 Design và display

The first thing you"ll notice about the Mi lưu ý 2 is the dual curves at the front & back of the device. The symmetrical curves are near-identical lớn those on Samsung"s ill-fated Galaxy lưu ý 7, and combined with the availability of global LTE bands, the Mi cảnh báo 2 is seen as an ideal replacement for those looking for a large-screened device with a dual-curved display.

The Mi note 2 fits that bill, but there are a few notable differences — the 5.7-inch display only sports a Full HD resolution, there"s no stylus, and the camera is strictly average.

What the screen lacks in resolution it makes up for in vibrancy. The Full HD LG-made OLED panel offers saturated colors, deep blacks, and high contrast levels. As is the case with all mi phones in this segment, there are plenty of options khổng lồ tweak the màu sắc temperature, & you get a reading mode that acts as a blue-light filter. There"s also a Sunlight Display mode that selectively boosts contrast & brightness, allowing you khổng lồ view the screen while outdoors.

While the phone has a dual-curved display, the screen doesn"t extend outward to the edges of the panel. There are noticeable bezels on the side that serve to lớn minimize accidental touches, which is a welcome addition. The back of the device is sparse, sporting a round camera lens & LED flash module along with the mày logo, which is located at the bottom. The build quality is excellent, & right up there with the best that Samsung và LG have to offer.

The phone definitely stands out in the Piano đen finish, but the downside is that the glass panel at the back attracts a lot of fingerprints. You"ll have to lớn carry a microfiber cloth if you want to keep the Mi cảnh báo 2 looking pristine.

Xiaomi has been offering an IR blaster in its handsets for several years now, & the Mi lưu ý 2 also has an emitter up vị trí cao nhất through which you can control a myriad of TVs và set-top boxes. The Mi chú ý 2 also offers USB-C connectivity, and the port is flanked by symmetrical grills that house a bottom-firing speaker and a microphone. The headphone jack is located at the top, và Xiaomi has bundled a DAC that allows for 192kHz/24-bit playback.

The fingerprint sensor located in the trang chủ button is an extension of what we"ve seen on the mày 5. Mi dabbled with various implementations last year, lượt thích Qualcomm"s Sense ID on the ngươi 5s, and trying out a fingerprint sensor at the back in the mày 5 Plus. The Mi note 2 has a standard trang chủ button up front, & the surface area is thankfully larger than that of the ngươi 5. The trang chủ button also doubles up as a capacitive key, allowing you lớn go back lớn the home screen with a quick tap.

Xiaomi Mi chú ý 2 Hardware

Like the mày 5s, the Mi chú ý 2 has top-notch hardware in the form of a Snapdragon 821 SoC. You"re not going to lớn notice any issues with the device when it comes lớn real-world performance, with the Mi chú ý 2 holding its own next lớn the likes of the px and OnePlus 3T.

The Mi chú ý 2 is available in two configurations — a base variant with 4GB of RAM & 64GB storage, and a global version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. The latter variant is particularly interesting as it is the first mi phone with global LTE coverage, but the downside is that it is limited in supply. Furthermore, as the Mi chú ý 2 is officially sold in just one country (China), you"ll have khổng lồ resort lớn picking it up from reseller sites if you want khổng lồ get your hands on the device outside Xiaomi"s trang chủ market.

The variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage is available for as low as $420, making it a very enticing option in this segment. The Mi note 2 doesn"t have a microSD slot, but the generous internal storage should be more than sufficient for most users. The global variant with 128GB of storage is available for $100 more.

Both variants offer dual-SIM support, along with NFC, công nghệ bluetooth không dây 4.2, GPS with GLONASS và Beidou.

Battery life

Xiaomi has been including massive batteries in its devices of late and the situation is no different in the Mi note 2. The phone has a 4070mAh battery in a chassis that"s just 7.8mm thick, and when combined with the Full HD display the Mi note 2 provides all-day battery life without breaking a sweat.

You"ll easily be able to get a day & a half"s worth of usage out of the Mi chú ý 2, and when you need to đứng đầu up the battery, you"ll be able to lớn rely on Quick Charge 3.0.

Xiaomi Mi note 2 Software

There"s not a lot to lớn talk about on the software front when it comes to the Mi cảnh báo 2, as it runs the same MIUI 8 skin that is present on the ngươi 5s, Redmi lưu ý 4, và other recent xiaomi phones. For better or worse, MIUI offers a ton of customization, & there"s a high learning curve. If you"re one to dig into the settings to lớn customize every single facet of your phone, then there"s plenty to like in MIUI 8. The interface has picked up a host of new features over the course of the years, & it takes a while to lớn explore them all.

Notable additions include Dual Apps, which let you run two instances of the same tiện ích on the phone, Second Space, a sandboxed zone that lets you create a second profile, and a built-in video clip editor. MIUI 8 doesn"t have an phầm mềm drawer, so if you"re lượt thích me & have lots of apps installed, you can install a third-party launcher like Nova lớn switch khổng lồ a more familiar-looking interface.

MIUI 8 offers a ton of customizability, but it takes a while khổng lồ get accustomed khổng lồ the interface.

MIUI is designed primarily for Chinese users, và as a result a lot of those elements pop up in the global ROM which is installed on Mi chú ý 2 units sold on reseller sites. Unlike the Chinese variant, the global ROM includes the Play Store as well as other Google apps, making it easy for you to get started with using the phone.

Xiaomi rolls out regular updates khổng lồ MIUI 8, delivering new features và security updates, but the one area where the manufacturer has lagged behind is platform updates. The Mi cảnh báo 2 is still running Marshmallow, and there"s no word on when the Nougat update will be available for the device.

Xiaomi Mi lưu ý 2 Camera

Although the Mi chú ý 2 has a 22.5MP imaging sensor, the small 1-micron pixel kích cỡ negatively affects its performance in low-light conditions. The Mi chú ý 2 takes good images for the most part, but when it comes to artificial lighting or night-time shots, the phone fails to lớn deliver.


Taking photos with the Mi lưu ý 2 is an easy affair, with the camera tiện ích offering several shooting modes & filters with previews. There"s also the option of shooting 4K video, but as is the case with images, the final chất lượng is passable but not great.


Xiaomi Mi lưu ý 2 Bottom line

The Mi chú ý 2 shows how far xiaomi mi has come. The company has consistently put out great phones in the mid-range segment, và the Mi lưu ý 2 is its best showing yet. The Full HD display may not be the densest in this segment, but it gets the job done. The only downside is the camera, which while decent at outdoor shots struggles when it comes lớn low-light imagery.

However, the biggest drawback with the Mi lưu ý 2 — & recent xiaomi flagships in general — is its availability. The phone is limited lớn China, & while you"ll be able lớn pick up the global version with 6GB of RAM và worldwide LTE bands for $529 (or $15 more than Xiaomi"s retail price), there"s no recourse should you run into any issues with the handset. The standard variant at $419 is also a lucrative khuyễn mãi giảm giá considering you"re getting a phone with Snapdragon 821 and a dual-curved panel, but once again, there"s that uncertainty when it comes khổng lồ after-sales service.

The availability of global LTE bands signifies the company"s move khổng lồ expand its horizons, and while there"s no specific plans on when it will enter Western markets, the Mi cảnh báo 2 sets the stage for such an eventuality.

Should you buy it? Yes

It"ll be at least a month before Xiaomi"s 2017 flagship, the mi 6, goes up for sale at reseller sites, & even after it does, the Mi chú ý 2 will continue to lớn be a very compelling option. For one thing, xiaomi isn"t offering a variant of the mi 6 with global LTE bands, and for now, the Mi lưu ý 2 is the only xiaomi mi phone that lets you access LTE networks around the world. You"re getting a lot for its $529 asking price.
