Xiaomi Mi Mix is not the first smartphone that has the design of bezelessness , which is the title of Sharp Aquous from Japan. However, with the fame of Xiaomi in combination with other things under the hood, it can be said that a lot of good remarks have come to this device and in this article, we’re gonna split it up and find out why it is so extraordinary.

Exclusive design, standing out from others
To make room for the massive display, Xiaomi had to move many of the current conventions of the smartphone around, but to make the shell holding it all together just as appealing, the company made this large 6.4-inch phone utilize full ceramic for its material.
The result is a very shiny, very sleek block that is highly eye-catching and, honestly, really slippery. I’ve almost dropped the phone multiple times as a result. It seems a little ironic to me that this phone is supposed to be all about the display yet it can be broken quite easily due to its large size and slippery body.
QHD super screen in the front
The IPS near bezel-less display has one big caveat right off the bat – it is only a 1080p display. Technically, it is actually 2040×1080, which makes it have an aspect ratio of 17:9 and slightly wider than the typical video frame. Though this almost Full HD is not bad by any means, flagship devices have made this kind of choice feel like more of an aberration than it probably should be. For a phone like the Xiaomi Mi MIX, Quad HD would have really elevated what is already a sight to behold.
Despite all that this phone is trying to introduce outside of the typical smartphone box, much of what we would expect remains. The Xiaomi Mi MIX (and the Mi Note 2) sports the Snapdragon 821 and either 4 or 6GB of RAM depending on the version (and price). As a result, the MIUI speeds through all of elements smoothly and without stutters or issues in and out of applications. Though MIUI (and – if I may have some candor – many Chinese Android iterations) is not my favorite experience, I cannot deny how well it is presented and how easy it is to enjoy all of my apps despite the Xiaomi UI that splatters it all over its homescreens and not in an app drawer.
To help you gain a deeper insight into the strength of Xiaomi Mi Mix, I strongly recommend you should watch the video below:
Camera 16MP with loads of amazing things
The camera spec of the Mi MIX are less important for this concept phone compared to where they were located, at least in the case of the front facing camera, as we have mentioned it a few times already in this review. That said, the specs are nothing to snooze on – the main camera is a 16MP shooter at f/2.0 aperture while the front facing camera is a 5MP shooter and is located below the screen this time.

In conclusion: should we buy it at present?
Xiaomi Mi Mix is a great smartphone with a massive screen and power configuration inside. If we exclude the camera, this phone can be listed one of the most worth-purchasing ones on the contemporary market. However, the price currently is a bit steep, more than $600 for a unit on Gearbest, while there are various devices that are worth your concern, including Xiaomi Mi5 or Xiaomi Note, etc. For all these reasons, please take care and consider carefully before investing in this phone.
