What the Critics Are Saying...

I’ve only spent about a week with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, but early returns on the device are great. It’s got a unique design, great aesthetic, phenomenal, flagship-caliber specifications and a much-improved UI that’s just different enough to set it apart. A couple design quirks like an oddly-placed f...

Beautifully-crafted, powerful smartphone with a decent camera, but it does come with strings attached. Most people simply won’t be willing to import the phone from China, so we don’t expect to see many of them around.

Its custom MIUI interface takes some getting used to, but the big and beautiful, notch-less display, the capable camera, the well-executed gesture navigation and the overall sophistication and elegance of the design more than make up for it.

I’ve only spent about a week with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, but early returns on the device are great. It’s got a unique design, great aesthetic, phenomenal, flagship-caliber specifications and a much-improved UI that’s just different enough to set it apart. A couple design quirks like an oddly-placed front-facing camera make you tilt your head in confusion, but so far I’m thoroughly impressed with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.

Bezel-less without the notch

from Android Headlines

It’s an iterative upgrade. But one of the bigger iterative upgrades out there. While the big selling point here is the fact that it has barely any bezels, with just a chin at the bottom, many people will enjoy this smartphone for other reasons. The great battery life, incredible performance and the impressive camera.

The luster remains

from Android Authority

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is yet another high end phone from the Chinese company that’s yet to make its way to the west. Though Xiaomi is strong in India and slowly popping up in Europe, plans for the U.S. seem inevitable but continue to be an ongoing internal discussion.

The flagship and the folly

from Pocket-lint

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is a phone that's as exciting as it is mystifying. The trim-bezel design and considerable power on board are great to behold for its price, yet the so-so screen and sometimes problematic software are just two of a handful of hurdles to overcome. Plus it's hard to actually buy one in many western markets.
