Sale huge smartphone Xiaomi Mi 2 Max 3 times exceeds the planned volume
Xiaomi company this year launched the second generation of the smartphone with the largest display size. The demand for new high and in 3 times exceeds the planned volume. But let’s be objective, the size is not suitable for everyone. On the other hand, choice if you are looking for a smartphone with a diagonal of 6,5″, is not so great. But for us, Smartphone.ua was interesting not this time. We were waiting for Mi 2 Max with Snapdragon processor 660 on Board. In the end we got a new chip class below.
Plus the manufacturer has made this smartphone an even more narrowly focused. Only in one color, with a Golden back cover, while the predecessor could boast three colors. Although all these devices were white front panel.You can put a cover and everything. But as a brutal man who wants to buy a smartphone with a diagonal of 6.5″ raise a hand to do it… Because this issue must be approached correctly and familiarize with the range. Because case for Xiaomi Mi 2 can Max on one side to make the phone more attractive and unique, and with another – to increase and so large dimensions.
Just say that the phone was worth $ 290 at the start of sales. Thus Max Mi 2 comes in a simple cardboard package, inside which apart from a smartphone is charger and USB cable.
The first thing you need to pay attention: new was 1 mm longer and 10 grams heavier than the predecessor. Perhaps it is reasonably capacious battery: 5300 mAh vs 4850 mAh. But, as a rule, manufacturers with each new generation trying to make their devices more compact. Here is the opposite. This, of course, is not critical for those who are willing to use such a shovel, in principle.
But there is one positive point. Mi Max 2 still touched trends. Smartphone lost budget plastic inserts. They were replaced by plastic strips of the arched type. Now the back panel can be called metal. All the other elements, with the exception of the flash, remained in their places. Well, only the MicroUSB port replaced by Type-C Build Mi Max 2 expected great, there is nothing to say.
The display does not change. All the same IPS panel with full HD resolution. Perhaps the producers of the matrix are different, but a common user in practice this is hardly noticed. Oleophobic coating is present, but again, at the level of the Redmi Note 4 and so on.
Out of the box the gadget is running Nougat with the eighth version of MIUI. The device is available in two versions, but the difference between them lies only in the internal memory of 64 GB or 128. By the way, one of the two slots is hybrid: internal memory can be expanded.
For the operation of the device corresponds to a low-powered but energy-efficient Snapdragon chip 625. For those who don’t play (well, or can accept the fact that you have to play at medium settings) is one of the most optimal solutions. I think that 4 GB of RAM for comfortable use as well enough.
The good news is that new product a quick charge, which, given the capacity of the battery, by the way.
One of the major downsides of the first “Mimaks” was the main camera. In the second generation Xiaomi installed sensor from SONY (IMX386) 12 MP, which should correct the situation. But the main problem of this brand is that they are often set low-quality optics, and this point plays an important role. If you do a little comparison of the Mi and Mi Max Max 2, we see that the difference is insignificant for good, and in low-light conditions. On the “second max” the image sharper, but there are issues to work autofocus.
As for the sound, pleased with the fact that Max 2 has got dual speakers, stereo sound, similar as implemented in Xiaomi Mi 6. The second speaker never hurts, but to say that it is the top stereo sound, the language is not rotated. Low frequencies are not.
Now we can say that the update is, in principle, not bad, even good but not for gamers. For everyday use, this smartphone will suffice with a head. Improved design, improved camera, gash stereo, added fast charging. Not so bad for those who want the diagonal of 6.5″. I believe that the main disadvantage of Mi Max 2 is no dark colors, because not everyone buying a smartphone looking at the technical part. Most looks directly at the design. A Golden color, to put it mildly, is not suitable for everyone. So, buying a case for this smartphone will be the task number “1” for its owner.
