The camera in Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is the biggest improvement compared to its predecessor. Two lighter lenses suggested better quality of night shots, and DxOMark did not score high marks. Is the camera in Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S really so good?
If the Xiaomi smartphones have any shortcomings and disadvantages, then the camera is definitely in the first place. This aspect divided Xiaomi from the market leader – it has been so far. However, it looks like the situation has changed after the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. For the better?
Camera in Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S
Let's start with the camera specifications in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. The heart of the main camera is the Sony IMX363 sensor with a resolution of 12 megapixels. It has large pixels (1.4 μm) and a fairly bright lens – f / 1.8. I can not but notice that Samsung Galaxy S9 has already descended to f / 1.5. We expected better pictures in low light conditions, but no one expected rage. The second lens also has 12 megapixels, and its presence allows you to use the optical zoom and achieve a bokeh effect – in this case dynamic. The specification did not therefore promise great results, but we certainly expected a significant improvement compared to the predecessor. The camera in Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 was its weakest feature, which did not allow him to be treated like a real flagship. He was "great for a Chinese smartphone" again. How is it in the successor?
Better photos after dark
Better. As you can see in the photo from Gizmochina.com, the brightness of the photo is incomparably better. You can even talk about a quite natural rendering of colors. Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 made a very average photo under the same lighting conditions. The effect can be seen below.If you want to learn more about the differences between the cameras in these two smartphones, you'll find all the photos in high resolution in the source. In my opinion, with the appearance of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S on the market, we can easily forget that Xiaomi can not show a smartphone with a good camera. Maybe this is not the best fotosmartphone on the market, but progress is more than noticeable.
Is it worth buying the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S?
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S appears as a smartphone with almost no flaws. Finally, he has a good camera, the efficiency as usual is at the highest level. I am surprised by only one issue. For several years, Xiaomi has become a synonym for great working time away from the socket . I would like to see an additional millimeter of thickness in the specification (although objectively Mi Mix 2S is not the thinnest one anyway), which would be charged with an additional 1000 mAh of battery capacity. A smartphone like a dream? At least for me. The price is also bearable – about 1800 zlotys when you buy in China. The smartphone will definitely go to Poland in time, but in my opinion its price will amount to at least PLN 2,700 . At this price, you can buy a whole range of last year's flagships – from Samsung Galaxy S8, through LG V30 (which is already cheaper) to this year's top smartphones. I hope that he will soon go to Poland – otherwise his purchase will not be particularly profitable. Even despite the phenomenal appearance. Since the much better camera hit the Mi Mix series, you can expect that the Xiaomi Mi 7 will be a real gem. In the end, this smartphone is supposed to be the "real" flagship of this manufacturer for 2018. "Xiaomi makes good flagship with bad cameras"? You can put it between fairy tales . Source: gizmochin
