Conclusive thoughts:

Although it has varying advantageous features yet there are things that the Mi Mix 2 doesn’t have. It lacks any sort of rated water resistance,has a standard, single-lens camera instead of a dual-camera set-up, and it doesn’t have a headphone jack or wireless charging. Xiaomi’s software is polarizing, as well. MIUI 9 despite having some good features here and there yet it looks like a platform quite different than other Android phones. Despite the flaws, yet it is one of a kind that can provide the user with full screen experience.
