Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 specs comparison versus the Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30


Xiaomi just unveiled another bezel-less monster to succeed its last-year Mi MIX, which was one of the first phones to kick-start the design trend. Although that one was mostly a proof of concept, the second-gen Mi Mix appears to be much-more fleshed out consumer product. Retaining the same old bezel-busting aesthetics and doubling down with some serious hardware under the hood, the Mi MIX 2 would likely give any other phone out there a serious run for the money.

Yet, there's always the availability issue with Xiaomi's phones, which are still a fata morgana for the US market. The situation is the same with the Mi MIX 2 as well - while we are not aware what markets it is about to grace with its presence, it's logical to assume that China and the neighboring countries will be it. 

But how does the new Mi MIX 2 fares against some of the newest and best Android phones out there, namely the Note 8 and the V30? Let's find out!

I feel like the f/2.0 aperture of the Mi Mix is kinda a let down. But for it's relatively cheaper price tag, it's hard to complain.

Actually you should complain. Its cheaper in china, will cost more everywhere else. And it has a lower resolution lcd ips screen while the others are higher res and oled. Also no microsd slot, no wireless charging, no dual camera, only f2.0 aperture, not waterproof, no headphone jack, no highdef audio. Its basically a fast phone with no other special features. And that priced at more than 500 dollars.....

All three phones are great and have high specs, however, the LG V30 is best for value: lgv30.yolasite.com/
