Review Xiaomi Mi Max 2 – GLOBAL VERSION 4GB RAM and Xiaomi Mi Max 2 Discount Code
The back panel is made of a single piece of aluminum (we got a version in a golden version, but there is still a black one), with neat plastic veined antennas in the tone of the case, no more terrible plastic inserts from above and below.
Sliding tray for SIM-card combined: one slot for micro-SIM, and the second one for nano-SIM, or for a memory card. So if you go from a smartphone to a SIM card in the smallest format, you’ll have to go to the communications salon of your operator and change the card to a larger one. Or to live without additional memory.
The front panel is covered with tempered glass Gorilla Glass, the edges protrude above the metal of the main body and are rounded – the 2.5D effect is now in vogue. An ugly black frame around the screen has been preserved, but it has become much thinner.
Honestly, I noticed it after reading our review of the first version of Mi Max, but once I saw, I could not continue to ignore it. So, it’s better to look for a black version of the smartphone, it also has touch-sensitive buttons with the backlight turned off that are less prominent.
The Mi Max 2 has very loud external stereo speakers: one on the lower end to the right of the USB-C port, and the second – combined with the spoken overhead. Ringtone and alarm clock you just do not miss, even from the next room, but I would not listen to music on it, at loudness above 70% it starts to choke, and the sound turns into a metal mash.
The screen is good, but not excellent
The screen is pride and the main distinguishing feature of Xiaomi Mi Max 2. And it’s not just the diagonal, the IPS panel is very bright and gives rich, juicy, but mostly natural colors even on standard calibration. If you do not like something, you can change the gamma settings in the menu and adjust it to your taste.
The resolution of Full HD is 1920×1080, the density of dots per inch is 320 ppi. The viewing angles are not bad, the colors are not inverted and do not fade even at an acute angle. But if you look at the screen at an angle of about 45 degrees from above, it fades almost completely. It seems like a trifle, but if you watch a TV series or a video on YouTube with two friends, the one who sits on the right, runs the risk of not seeing anything
The smartphone comes with Android 7.1.1 on board, so in the evening in the settings you can activate the “reading mode”, which makes the image more yellow, so that the eyes are less tired of the bright white light in the dark. This function, by the way, is in all smartphones and Apple computers.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is equipped with an eight-core Snapdragon 625 processor with graphics Adreno 506 and 4 GB of RAM. The chip last year, middle class, but it is characterized by high energy efficiency.
Performance – no records. However, judging not from digital “parrots”, but from personal experience, for everyday tasks such hardware is more than enough: there are no problems with downloading “heavy” PDF-documents, the interface is fast and smooth, the browser, video and clients of social networks work quickly.
