Xiaomi's best phone is now sold on Amazon in the United States
If you want a top-notch phone with a big, edge-to-edge screen, no bezel, futuristic gesture navigation, fast performance, great camera, tons of storage, wireless charging and an excellent battery, well, there aren't that many phones that fit these criteria.

In fact, very few do.

One such phone has just recently become available in the United States and you should absolutely consider buying it (or at least trying it).

We are talking about the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s, a phone from Chinese brand Xiaomi that has only recently started its expansion to the West, but enjoys big sales and popularity in Asia.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s features an exquisite, ceramic back that will not scratch as easily as glass, it comes with a true edge-to-edge screen with no bezel (it's an LCD screen, but a very nice LCD screen), the top-tier Snapdragon 845 chip with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, as well as an excellent dual camera with portrait mode, stabilized 4K video recording, and great battery life.

The only thing that will take some getting used to is the specific Android skin used here: it's called MIUI and it comes with no app drawer and iOS inspired esthetics, but also tons of useful features.

The Mi Mix 2s is now available unlocked on Amazon for just $530, half the price of the iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8. Keep in mind that this is a GSM phone, so it will only work with AT&T and T-Mobile, but does not support Verizon Wireless or Sprint. If you can deal with that, check out our full Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s review here and follow the link below to buy the phone in the US.

Decent piece of kit for the dollars asked. Not great but decent imo.

I would say it's great. Top hardware, no notch and ceramic back for the same price of a One Plus 6T? It's still one of the cheapest alternatives with SD 845. I only wonder if it's going to work on At&t and T-mobile's LTE

it did not say exactly in the article...gsm could also mean edge/hspa+...ive bought several unlocked oversea models before and the fastest it will do is hspa+ on tmobile.

It's very clear. Gsm (Tmobile and AT&T) vs cdma (Sprint and Verizon). It has all the necessary LTE bands and it does work on Verizon too actually.

Seems these are all from importers....not actual Xiaomi marketed stuff in USA just yet. Good to know plenty are helping make them easy to get a hold of through Amazon...but more interested in seeing Xiaomi sell them more officially.

They’ll come to the US in 2021 or later, after Trump is out of office and the trade war is over.
