Xiaomi has left China and it has started to expand like water, and a good part of the blame for this is its vital alliance with Google, that has enabled them to take their “westernization” to a new level at the software level.
However, it is true that MIUI does not like everyone, and, although it is a very good layer, it is not comparable to the simplicity offered by a stock ROM. Because, today we are going to tell you why we would like to see a Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S Google Play Edition, or, rather, with Android One.
These are the reasons why we want a Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S with Android One
Maybe you do not remember, but before, Google launched in certain markets versions of the top of the range with pure Android, running the software in his hand. Something that, over time, has ended up replacing Android One. The truth is that these types of versions we love, and these are the reasons why we would like to see the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S with a software hand in hand with Google.
One of the best Android designs on the outside and inside, for only 500 euros
Personally, the design of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S has me in love, since, despite having a thickness maybe a little big compared to other high-end -8.1 millimeters, still moving within acceptable margins, And also the construction materials are well worth it.
And, as you can see, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S is made of glass and metal, and gives incredible sensations in the hand. Although, as the only downside, we have to say that the double camera stands out a bit -this happens more than we would like right now in the market- and this can cause the glass that protects them to be scratched.
But, where the Xiaomi terminal really wins is in the front, as we find a lower frame in which the camera is located and a tiny frame on the sides and top to house the speaker. All this with a percentage of useful surface of the front of 83%.
And this design, in conjunction with the incredible Google software, which currently has a design in the Google Pixel very difficult to overcome. Material Design 2 is just around the corner with Android P, and enjoy it in a terminal like this would only improve our experience with it.
Excellent hardware accompanied by the best software
But the best of all is that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S, which already has official beta of Android P – like Google Pixel – is, right now, one of the best terminals on the market, with a top hardware that is impossible to overcome, and for more proof, there are all the specifications of the terminal.

And, although MIUI is a layer of personalization that brings out the best in this terminal, it is also true that Google has shown that it is one step ahead of the rest of the manufacturers in terms of software, starting with optimization and finishing by the fact that, being Android developed by the company itself, all the novelties of the operative system, as well as the new versions of the same happen first through their favorite terminals.
For that reason, a version of the terminal with Android One would be practically the best buy of the market, as long as the fact of being a high range is worth it to have a little more attention from Google than other terminals with Android One They have finished a little careless.
The Mi A1 was a success, and the Mi MIX 2S could take the same path
The experience with Android One ROMs has not gone bad for Xiaomi, whose Xiaomi Mi A1 has sold like churros since its launch,For a long time. Why? Well, we would venture to say that because it mixes the good work of Xiaomi in manufacturing with Google software that, at this point, is not unknown to anyone.
And if this formula worked with this mid-range terminal, we are sure that it would not go wrong with the best high-end quality-price range that we can find right now. MIUI already works great with this terminal – despite some small bugs that Xiaomi just corrected with an update-, but we are confident that Google could bring this performance to excellence.
In addition, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S is the only device from Xiaomi that has the beta stock of Android P available to download and install using Fastboot, so it would only be a matter of adapting the final version of the ROM.
