The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 has become a source of inspiration for myriads of smartphone makers. But most of the replicas copy only the appearance, while the hardware is not satisfactory. The phone we are going to talk about break all stereotypes. It doesn’t hide its intentions of copying the Mi MIX 2. But what’s more important, it sports a decent specs list. So we can state the Allcall MIX 2 is one of the best alternatives of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2. And it can be considered as a great offer for those who want to own a Mi MIX-like smartphone at a way lower price tag. At this moment, this handset has got a price off. After the 16% price cut, it is available at $189.99.
Obviously, the selling point of the Allcall MIX 2 is its appearance. Its back uses an IML technology that provides a mirror-like effect. The rear panel uses curved glass, while the middle frame is made of metal.
Like its founding father, this handset uses a tri-bezel-less design. On the front, it carries a 5.99-inch screen that occupies up to 90% of the front panel. Thanks to this technology and narrowed borders the display provides way better viewing experience put on the same body as 5.5-inch phones. Apart from this, the Allcall MIX 2’s screen comes with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels, a pixel density of 403ppi, a contrast ratio of 2000:1, a brightness rating of 405 cd/m2, and uses In-Cell technology. Actually, the screen deserves our praises.
The Allcall MIX 2 is priced affordably. So it’s logical to see a MediaTek chip instead of a Qualcomm product. It is packed with an Helio P23 octa-core chip clocked at 2.0GHz. The SoC is also paired with a 6GB dual-channel LPDDR4 of RAM and 64GB of native storage. The next highlight is the battery. The 3500mAh battery supports PumpExpress fast charging (9V/1.67A 15W). But what’s more interesting, it supports wireless charging (5V/2A 10W). The latter will charge the phone fully in 1.5 hours.
Unfortunately, the Allcall MIX 2 doesn’t run on the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system. Android 7.1 comes pre-installed. But the latter is capable of providing a smooth performance and bringing of many goodies such a split-screen.
At last, the Allcall MIX 2 is packed with a 16MP rear camera, which comes with an aperture of f/2.0 and a PDAF support with a focusing speed of 0.1s. As for the front camera, it is placed on the lower part of the front panel. It comes with an 8MP sensor and supports beautify feature. It’s not hard to guess the MIX 2 supports face unlock. But there is a fingerprint scanner as well.
