Xiaomi Mi Max 2 Review

Recently, it has become a very casual thing to see people roaming around with 7-inch tablets which they use as their primary phones.

No matter how weird it looked it has become a trend and all thanks to the affordable Tab Series of Samsung for making it a trend. We had observed the Phab Plus by Lenovo along with the Xiaomi Mi Max phablet. Now, the Xiaomi Mi Max has a new entrant in this series known as the Xiaomi Mi Max 2.

The 6.44-inch phablet was launched by Xiaomi in China in the month of May and a month later in India last year. The starting price of Xiaomi Mi Max starts is Rs. 14,999/- for the basic model which offers internal storage of 32GB, a RAM of 3GB and Snapdragon 650 processor and goes up to Rs. 19,999/- for the high-end model which offers internal storage of 128GB, a RAM of 4GB and Snapdragon 652 processor. The high end version is also known as Mi Max Prime and now Xiaomi is planning to launch the Mi Max 2 by May 2017.

The main specifications of the so-called Mi Max 2 are that it will continue to have the 6.44-inch display, will run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 chipset and offer a RAM of 6GB and 128GB internal storage. We are still not sure about the specifications related to expandable storage capacity. It will have a 5,000mAh battery along with fast charge support feature. The details related to other specifications like camera, connectivity, and software haven’t been disclosed yet. We are assuming that Mi Max 2 will run on Android 7.0 Nougat-based MIUI 9 OS. It is advised that this information be taken with a grain of salt, the reason being this is the first report on a possible successor to the Mi Max phablet.

The specifications of the previous Xiaomi Mi Max phablet are it comes with a 6.44-inch full HD (1080p) display along with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top, offers a storage capacity of 32GB which can be further expanded up to 128GB through a microSD card. Mechanized with a 4,850mAh battery which is a decent offer of full day talktime and also lasts 20 percent more than the Redmi Note 3, the phablet comes with both the Snapdragon 652 and 650 chipsets along with Qualcomm’s Adreno 510 GPU. The Mi Max offers a 16-megapixel primary camera with f/2.0 along with dual-tone LED flash and PDAF and a 5-megpaixel selfie camera with beautify 85-degrees wide-angle for images and video calling. The phablet is also installed with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge support to quickly charge the device. Talking about the connectivity features the phablet comes with Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 4G LTE with VoLTE support & dual-SIM support (Hybrid SIM slot) and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based MIUI 8 OS.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
