X frequently asked questions about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S
Which is better, the Mi MiX 2S or Mi 8?
Both are exactly the same in terms of specifications. The Mi 8 is somewhat larger and has notch, while the Mi MIX 2S is smaller and without notch. It depends on which design you like the most.
Where is the proximity sensor?
The proximity sensor is on the top right, next to the speaker. It works through ultrasound (not infrared as is usually normal) and has been manufactured by Elliptics Labs.
How is the main camera?
I went out to take pictures with the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, so I’m going to put a few. This is the same scene without zoom, with x2 optical zoom and with x8 zoom.

A wonder, both in photography and video. The results are very, very good in any light condition. In addition, the second lens is a telephoto lens, so you can make optical zoom and still maintain the sharpness of the photo. Above you have a tweet with an example.
How is the internal camera or selfies?
To feed him part. It is located in the lower right area, an unnatural location that does not quite convince me. In addition, the results are not too good either. High lights are not managed well and the angle is too low, so you come out very close. There are better alternatives in this regard.
Is Artificial Intelligence visible when taking photos?
Yes, especially in portrait mode. When you take normal photos, the camera detects the scene and applies a series of live filters that stylize the image. When you do a portrait, the AI helps to trim well the hair and the edges so that the result is optimal. It shows, although you could live without her perfectly.
Do you have a video stabilizer?
The video, again, leaves me with my mouth open.

Not only does it have it but it works like a charm, it seems that you’ve been recording with a steady-cam. Above you have a test video recorded at 60 FPS in FullHD and freehand. Judge for yourself.
What is your autonomy? How much does the battery last?
On the battery of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S. An intense day of games and apps with maximum brightness (using it outdoors) reaches me 4:42 hours of screen. He still has 12% left, but boy, in the mean.

It has 3,400 mAh with fast charge and my average is between 4:30 and 5:30 hours of active screen per day, depending on the use that you give it. Enough, although improvable.
How long does it take to load? Do you have wireless charging?
A full charge from zero to 100 takes 1:30 hours, more or less. Yes, it has wireless charge although it is much slower, between 2 and 2:30 hours. The best is the cable, without a doubt.
Does it come with the global ROM or with the Chinese one?
If you buy it at an authorized dealer as it comes with the global ROM installed as standard. If you buy it on Chinese export websites, you may have to go through the flashing process. In my case it came with the global ROM.
Does 4G support in any country?
Yes. It is compatible with the bands 2100, 700, 800, 1800, 2300, 2100, 2600, 1900, 1700/2100, 2300,null, 2500, 850, 2600 and 900.
How is your performance? Do games work, light or heavy?
Excellent, simply and plainly. You can play any game and move it with absolute fluency, no matter how heavy it is. The applications work perfectly and open quickly. I have not had a single lag in the time I’ve been using it.
Do you have a facial unlocking?
Yes, but it has not activated yet. Theoretically, Xiaomi said he should arrive shortly.
Do you have NFC?
Yes, and it works perfectly if you want to use it to pay with your mobile.
Do you have infrared to control TV?
No, unfortunately not. It’s a shame, because it’s a function that many users liked and that seems to have vanished from the face of the Earth.
Is it complicated to get to the Xiaomi layer (MIUI)
No, it’s not complicated, although you can always install Nova Launcher and have everything to your liking. The really tedious thing is to configure the notifications, which are disabled by default, although you do it once and then you forget. In addition, MIUI goes very well, is one of the best layers of customization today.
Do you have gestural navigation?
Yes, skip the iPhone X. It is intuitive and works as expected. Once you get used to it, it’s hard to go back to the buttons.
How about your finish? Is it resistant? Does it slip a lot?
Our version is the glass and the truth is that it gives a very premium feeling. Is it resistant? I have not thrown it on the ground to check it, but being all screen and being built in glass, it is susceptible to think that it breaks more easily than a mobile made of aluminum. On the other hand, yes, it slips, especially if your hands are sweaty.
Are the traces left?
Of course, like any mobile built in glass. Fortunately, in the box you can find a black case that will solve the problem.
How much is the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S worth?
Officially 529 euros on the Xiaomi website. InYou can take it home for 450 euros with a two-year Spanish guarantee. You will also have it with you in two days. In relation quality-price, few things there are better.
