The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 was in the news for past couple of months due to its super high-end specifications. We went through a lot of leaks & rumors and well, the device has been launched officially today! ” Man ! It looks like Note 7″. Yes! This was my reaction when I first of all saw the official images of the phone and I guess same was the case with you. The device at the first glance looks exactly like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 due to that dual curved screen and the home button. Note 7 might be dead but it seems the Mi Note 2 will let you forget the Note 7! Why is it so? Just keep reading. 🙂

XIAOMI MI NOTE 2 WILL LET YOU FORGET THE NOTE 7!

THAT DISPLAY-

Well, what comes in your mind when you hear a Dual Curved Screen? Obviously a Samsung device ( S7 Edge or Note 7). But, now Xiaomi too, has joined the list of smartphones with a Dual Curved screen. The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 comes with a gorgeous 5.7-inch QUAD-HD OLED panel. (  *Cough* 5.7-inch QHD *Cough*) As mentioned before, it is a dual curved display which makes the bezels almost invisible. The Mi Note 2 has a screen to body ratio of 77.2% which is pretty good. Well, it is really nice that it has a home button below the display and isn’t just empty space. ( *cough* Google Pixel *cough*). Anyways, it might look like Note 7 but in my opinion, this is the so far the best looking device Xiaomi has ever made. The front is really amazing with that gorgeous screen.

THOSE SPECS-

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Specs

We all know Xiaomi likes to incorporate super high-end features in its devices and same is the case with the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. The spec sheet includes a Snapdragon 821 clocked at 2.35GHz along with the Adreno 530GPU with maximum speed of 624MHz. There are 3 different variants with different memory options. Here are they :

  • 4GB LPDDR4 RAM + 64GB UFS2.0 Internal Memory
  • 6GB LPDDR4 RAM + 128GB UFS2.0 Internal Memory
  • 6GB LPDDR4 RAM + 128GB UFS2.0 Internal Memory (Global 4G+)

Unfortunately, there is no memory expansion option. (Sad!) The camera section of the device is impressive as it features a 22.56MP rear camera with EIS Hardware level 4K video Stabilization & an 8MP front-facing camera with autofocus. Under the hood, there is a 4070mAh battery with the latest Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support. Also , the Mi Note 2 has NFC which is a feature we really miss in flagship devices these days.

CONCLUSION-

Overall, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is a great device if we look at the specs. But, we cannot really judge a smart phone just by the specs on paper.  One thing is true for sure, the device looks exactly  the same as Note 7 from the front! Anyways, talking about the pricing, here are the prices of different variants :

  • 4GB + 64GB: 2799 yuan (~$415)
  • 6GB + 128GB: 3299 yuan (~$490)
  • 6GB + 128GB Global: 3499 yuan (~$515)

At such pricing, this phone has really destroyed the competition! What are your thoughts? Do let us know via comments section. 😀
