Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 set to Launch in India Today


Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 bezel-less display mobile phone is set to launch in India today. On Monday, just ahead of the smartphone’s launch event in New Delhi, Flipkart revealed that the Mi MIX 2 will be exclusively available on its platform in India. The launch event kicks off at 11:30 am IST and as always. To recall, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 was launched in China last month alongside the Xiaomi Mi Note 3. So far, there’s no indication that the latter smartphone will make its way to India as well. Notably, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 India launch will be the first premium phone the Chinese firm has brought to India since the Mi 5 back in March last year.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 price in India

The Mi MIX 2 was unveiled in three RAM and storage variants – 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage at CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 32,300), 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage at CNY 3,599 (roughly Rs. 35,300), and 6GB RAM/ 256GB storage at CNY 3,999 (roughly Rs. 39,200). The Xiaomi company had also unveiled the Mi MIX 2 Special Edition 8GB of RAM, 128GB storage, and a full ceramic body, at CNY 4,699 (roughly Rs. 46,000). However, this last model is unlikely to be launched in India, at least on Tuesday – as it has yet to go on sale in China, where it will be made available to buy in Nov. Price in India of Mi MIX 2 is likely to be similar to what we saw in China.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 features

As for the features, the Mi MIX 2’s biggest highlight is, of course, its bezel-less display. It sports a 5.99-inch full-HD (1080 pixels by 2160 pixels), LCD display with a pixel density of 403ppi and support for DCI-P3 color gamut. There is no ‘upper lip’ above the display, and the front camera has been relegated to the ‘bottom lip’, a design decision that Xiaomi had used with the last Mi MIX as well. The headset is lighter, smaller, and thinner than its predecessor. Featuring a ceramic body, the phone has a frame built out of 7-Series aluminum apart from a 18K gold plated camera ring. Another major highlight is ‘hidden sound-guided speaker’ that resonates sound through the display and frame, completely hiding the speaker itself. Finally, the Xiaomi company is also touting facial recognition technology for unlocking the mobile phone.

Xiaomi Mi A1 VS Motorola G5S Plus: Which Phone Should You Buy?


The under Rs. 15,000 segment of mobile phones has seen a lot of new launches of late, but there are two smartphones in particular that really stand out. Those are the Motorola Moto G5S Plus and the Xioami Mi A1, and if you are not sure which of those two is the one for you, then you have come to the right place. Let’s take a look at which phone you should buy.

Xiaomi Mi A1 VS Motorola G5S Plus

Xiaomi Mi A1 vs Motorola Moto G5S Plus: Design

Both smartphones have metal unibodies and dual rear-cameras. The camera sticks out in the back, but the bump is more prominent in the Motorola Moto G5S. The overall design is fairly similar, with curved sides and edges that rock a little on flat surfaces, and the antenna bands run along the top and bottom.

The main difference is the position of the fingerprint scanner – the Xioami Mi A1 has its scanner on the back, like most smartphones from the brand, while the Motorola Moto G5S Plus follows the Motorola style of having the fingerprint scanner on the chin of the smartphone, under the display. The Moto G5S Plus is also a little thicker, at 9.5mm, while the Mi A1 is a sliver device at 7.3mm, despite having a larger battery – the Moto G5S Plus has a 3000mAh battery and the Xiaomi Mi A1 has a 3080mAh battery.

Xiaomi Mi A1 vs Moto G5S Plus: Spes

In terms of specs, the two smartphones have a lot in common. Both have 5.5-inch full-HD displays (1080 by 1920 pixels), although we felt that the Moto G5S Plus looked a little better, though it’s a close-run thing. Both smartphones are also powered by a Snapdragon 625 SoC, with 4GB RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. Both have hybrid dual-SIM slots where the second slot can either house a SIM or a microSD card.

Xiaomi Mi A1 vs Moto G5S Plus: Performance

Despite the very similar specifications, the Xiaomi Mi A1 edged ahead a little on the performance front. The Motorola Moto G5S Plus runs a little hotter, and the Xiaomi Mi A1 also scored better on benchmarks. Both smartphones also feature fast charging, but the Xiaomi Mi A1 has a USB Type-C cable while the Moto G5S Plus has an old-fashioned Micro-USB port. The Xiaomi Mi A1 also has an IR emitter, which can be used to control your TV or home appliances, which is a cool plus.

Xiaomi Mi A1 VS Motorola G5S Plus Software:-

The Smartphones runs on Android 7.0 (Nougat)with very little customisation, Motorola has been doing this for a while and Xiaomi Mi A1 is a part of the revived Android One initiative. This latter point gives the Xiaomi Mi A1 a bit of an edge over the Motorola Moto G5S Plus not because of major differences now, but because as an official part of the Android one program. It’s guaranteed to get software updates.

Xiaomi Mi A1 VS Motorola G5S Plus Battery Life:-

Both headsets do a good job on the battery front, but the Moto G5S edges ahead here. In our video loop test, the smartphone delivered 11 hours and 15 minutes of non-stop video playback, while the Xiaomi M1 A1 lasted for 10 hours and 18 minutes. Both are pretty good results, and in real-world usage too, both smartphones did well, but the power management on the Motorola Moto G5S Plus is a little better.

Xiaomi Mi A1 vs Moto G5S Plus: Camera

The two smartphones use different approaches to the dual rear camera setup they both have. While the Moto G5S Plus uses one 13 MP RGB sensor and one 13 MP monochrome sensor, the Xiaomi Mi A1 has two 12 MP sensors and the difference here lies in the lenses instead – one is a telephoto lens and the other standard. Thanks to this, the Motorola Moto G5S Plus does a better job in high contrast scenarios and low light photography. On the other hand, the Xiaomi Mi A1 can zoom in thanks to the telephoto lens, making it more versatile, and the dedicated portrait mode on the Xiaomi Mi A1 delivers better photos than the depth mode on the Motorola Moto G5S Plus. Overall, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is our pick in the camera department.
