So, here are the top 7 things which you must know about the Xiaomi Mi Max 2:

#7. Dual Speakers

Let’s begin with the speakers. Now, this is something which is really new from Xiaomi. To enhance the multimedia experience, Xiaomi has fitted two dual speakers in the Mi Max 3.

The sound output of the device is really good and has to be one of the best under the 20K segment. Although, you don’t get any third party app to enrich the sound settings. Overall, the sound quality of this device is really good.

#6. Display

One thing that remains unchanged is the display, like similar to the Mi Max, the Mi Max 2 also comes with a 6.44-inch display.

Considering the price point, the full HD display kind of justifies the price. The security quality is good, however, pixels become visible during various scenarios. Hence, if you are expecting a good screen quality, then the Mi Max 2 might disappoint you.

#5. Availability

Xiaomi has always been criticized for quite a lot of things, and one of the things is the availability of devices. Fortunately, there is a bit of relief as Xiaomi has told that the Mi Max 2 will be available in the offline market.

However, for those who are thinking of getting this device online, then they have to get it via their official site ‘Mi.com’, which is kind of disappointing.

#4. Gaming

Xiaomi has been known for providing high-end chipset on low-cost smartphones. Much like the Redmi Note 4, with the Mi Max 2, you also get the same configuration.

Hence, playing heavy games on this device will not be an issue. Games like Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5, Nova 3, etc. can be played without facing any kind of shutters of hiccups.

#3. OS

Before launching Mi Max 2, Xiaomi launched three smartphones in India, however, none of them came with the latest Android 7.0 (Nougat).  Thankfully, with the Mi Max 2, you’ll not have this complaint, as the device runs on the Android 7.0 (Nougat).

And on top of it, you get their own MIUI skin. Nevertheless, there are key Android 7.0 (Nougat) features which you don’t find in the MIUI 8.5.

#2. Camera

Xiaomi has been getting a negative feedback for their smartphones camera performance, however, the company is been trying to improve their image.

And the results can be seen in the Redmi Note 4, and Redmi 4. Unlike the 13 MP rear shooter which we got to see in the Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4, the Mi Max 2 comes with a 12 MP sensor.

Now the reason behind this reduction is to improve image quality by increases the pixel size. In reality, the camera does a really good in daylight conditions, images come with good detailing, although, the color reproduction seems to be a bit saturated.

The scenario changes in low-light, pictures taken at night, tend to be blurry and noisy. As far as recording video, with the Mi Max 2, you will be able to record videos at 4K quality.

#1. Battery

Whether it’s the Redmi 4 or the Redmi Note 4, users have been complaining regarding the slow charging of the battery. Nonetheless, with the Mi Max 2, you’ll not have such complaints as with the device you get an 18 W quick charger.

Once the battery is fully charged, it can easily last for 2-3 days before running out of juice.
