The Good The bezel-less Xiaomi Mix 2 is fast, snappy, and packs LTE support for the whole world.
The Bad The selfie camera is still located at an awkward place below the display, and the phone is only sold in limited countries. It also lacks water resistance.
The Bottom Line The Mi Mix 2 is the perfect bezel-less phone for Android fans all over the world, but can be hard to get if you don't live in China or India.
A great Xiaomi phone you can use anywhere
Once again, Xiaomi has proven that you don't have to pay your body weight in gold to get a quality, feature-packed phone -- so long as you aren't looking for cutting-edge features.
And for the first time ever, Android fans will be able to use a Xiaomi phone on LTE no matter where they live. The snappy, all-screen Mi Mix 2 includes the right radios to latch onto the fastest networks in the US and other countries across Europe. Before this, Xiaomi phones would ride slower 3G networks outside their home countries, which typically included China, India and Brazil, if they worked at all.
Although the Mi Mix 2 will still only sell in those limited markets and a few more besides, the fact that this high-value handset will work wherever it goes, is a step in the right direction for fans or the Xiaomi-curious that are resourceful enough to get their hands on one.
