One of the best phones I've ever owned... bar none!

PhantomSectre has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

The Mi2s is the best phone I have ever owned. It runs on MIUI, which is an operating system based on Android 4.1.2. Currently, MIUI is being upgraded to Android 4.2. Unlike most phone companies, MIUI is upgraded WEEKLY... not every six to twelve months like most OS's. The battery life is much better than what is posted here, I charge the phone every other day with moderate use. Under heavy use, the battery will last more than one day. I have the 32 GB version that comes with a 13 MP camera. It supports full 1080p and 30 FPS. Pictures and video are excellent. It has a slo-mo feature that records at 90 FPS. Calls are crisp and clear with AMAZING reception. I had an iPhone before and in places the iPhone had no service, the Mi2s has TWO BARS! As for speed, this phone has a 1.7 Ghz snapdragon 600 quad core processor that blows away the Galaxy S4 with it's octa-core processor. Music is handled via Dolby Digital Plus and, in my opinion, puts Beats Audio to shame. I'm not fond of the keyboard, but it can easily be replaced with a different one from Play. It doesn't have LTE, which is fine with me. I still get 42.2 Mbps down speed through DC-HSPA. LTE is power hungry and eats up the battery, so the trade-off is more than worth it. Other phones that are tied to a charger all the time aren't really so "mobile" if you ask me. MIUI is completely customizable... from the icons, to the top bar, to the notifications... everything can be changed to suit your tastes. The...

Crisp and clear, even in noisy areas. Call volume is very good.
Internet

The browser could use some work, but speeds and connectivity are great.
Multimedia

Dolby Digital Plus Audio... puts Beats Audio to SHAME.
Camera

Low light, normal light, bright light, doesn't matter... it just takes great pics. Even does slow motion video. Face detection and burst mode (keeps taking pics until you let go of the shutter button... about 3 per second)
UI speed

Snapdragon 600 CPU... fast.

Needs a better keyboard.
Display

Crystal clear, saturation, contrast and color temp can be changed to suit your tastes. Could be a little larger.

I get two days with moderate use. A little over one day with heavy use.

Excellent build quality

It's the best phone I've had until now.
Excellent build quality (considering the price). Very fast and excellent graphics. I think that also has a good camera (when light), because when not using the flash, and when there is low light the pictures leave little to be desired.
love the MIUI rom, I am fan. Everyone should try this rom.
I think it is good value for money.
