While we wait, here we leave you a first contact, impressions and opinion of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.

We have traveled half the world to attend this morning presentation of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s . In a few days we will give you a more thorough analysis of all the equipment’s features and if, as they have not stopped insisting, it really surpasses its competitors so much thanks to the new camera or the Snapdragon 845.

The truth is that we had just a few minutes to “play” with the terminal and appreciate, above all, its design. Both in its model in white and black, we can see some spectacular finishes, with the ceramic touch that has the case and that allows it to be compatible with Qi wireless charging.

On the other hand, like all those who now offer us 6 inch screens (5.99 “FullHD + to be exact in this case) in 18: 9 format, is a very ergonomic terminal, which fits perfectly to our hand and easy to use to have such a panel. A weight of 189 grams, light and balanced, is completed with a thickness of 8.1 mm. It does not stand out but it is in the average of its competitors.

But, undoubtedly, the two elements that have most stood out in the presentation, camera and processor, are those that need a more extensive test. The camera shows some Features similar to the Xiaomi Mi 6 , but the aesthetics of Redmi Note 5.

On paper, it is still very similar but the company has insisted that many improvements have been made and, even with this, an interesting score of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s in DXoMark . It is the first one that in the individual photographic test gets more than 100 points … but the video has subtracted from it and in the end it remains for behind Galaxy S9, Pixel 2XL and also iPhone X, tying with the Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

Continuing with the sensations, as you can see, the ceramic housings have the same problem as the glass ones, they fill up with prints right away. Although the one of white color is the one that better resists, the one of black color reveals immediately as the one that worse takes this subject.

For sure, if you asked Where is the front camera? Then again it’s back in the bottom of the screen. It’s something that the first Mi Mix already offered. It is still a curious position and comes with all the improvements to make the best selfies with the background blur. His performance is something that we will have to check with some more time but his position, raises as much love as hatred.

Conclusion: we were expecting something more exciting

The truth is that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s, although in the company are really very happy with it, it is still a pretty continuous phone . There are traces of the Mi Mix 2, the Xiaomi Mi 6 and the Redmi Note 5, but nothing really original at the aesthetic level. It is true that it has some really interesting features at a very competitive price (500 euros the most expensive, approximately), but the reality is that it already has rivals with a certain level, such as Honor View 10 (which for the case … has the same hardware as Mate 10 but for 499 euros).

Aesthetically it is an interesting terminal but not revolutionary either. And we will see if that does not weigh against others who come stomping in this regard as the Galaxy S9 + itself, the iPhone X or what is expected of the Huawei P20 Pro this afternoon.
