The second-gen Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has been launched back in May. It has been one of the most anticipated smartphones of the company, as there are not many phablet-size models carrying Mi brand. Moreover, the original model was very popular and it’s been expected this one will succeed a lot as well. Actually, the Mi Max 2 is one of the most affordable big-size-screen phones coming our way from a top brand. It was priced quite low at 1699 yuan ($250) only. But now you can acquire it for only $209.99 after applying the coupon (code: jsmax2q).

To realize whether this phone deserves the required money, we should get acquainted with its key features. The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 sports a 6.44-inch screen. This size allows us to put it into the category of phablets. The previous model came with an identical screen size. But this one differs by the 53% narrowed frame around it. The display provides a 1080p resolution and 72% NTSC color gamut. This screen also comes with an eye protection mode as well as color temperature adjustment. And finally, it’s been supplied by Pegasus.
However, this is not a top-notch smartphone. Though it comes with a number of awesome features, the Mi Max 2 is packed with a Snapdragon 625 chip. The latter is considered to be one of the best options in the mid-range market. The SoC is also paired with a 4GB of RAM and 64/128GB.
A large screen requires a larger capacity battery. Fortunately, Xiaomi thinks in this way as well. There is a 5300mAh battery providing up to 2 days of normal use. As for charging, this handset supports QC3.0, parallel fast charge technology, and OTG reverse charging. So it takes only 2 hours and 24 minutes to charge it fully.
The next selling point of this big phone is its battery. Its owners should be proud of the same Sony IMX386 sensor as the Xiaomi Mi 6. Thus, this phone features a 12MP camera with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF support, and Xiaomi’s ‘low light quality enhancement’ algorithm.
