What do we personally want from the Mi Max 2? Bigger battery (yes, even 6000mAh would not be too crazy), better screen, and full metal body. That’s all! Let’s see if they give us this.
Of course, it will be only available in China for a while first. Then you may see it in India and the rest of the world – slowly.
Amazing video as always from JerryRigEverything.
Mi6 is a massive build improvement compared to the Mi5 and king of durable cheap flagship phones. Hooray for a well built Xiaomi flagship!
DO NOT dunk that phone into water otherwise this is what happens.
Great review by TechTablets. Shame about the crashes and beta-level MIUI though. Also, how on earth they can still have these framerate issues with the front facing camera in low light situations? These all can be fixed with software, so let’s hope that MIUI 9 is going to come to all phones that have these issues soon, including the Mi5S.
