Xiaomi Mi Mix

The XIaomi Mi Mix gives us a glimpse into what the future for smartphones possibly hold but at the same time, it shows us how that future is further than we hope. Whichever way you look at it, it's the closest we've ever come to the holy grail of a bezel-less smartphone.

What we like

Flashy design
Almost no bezel!
Snapdragon 821 works great
High storage capacity
Great battery life despite screen size
Software includes features Western UIs lack

What we don't like

Though flashy, design is far from accessible
Near bezel-less 17:9 display gains bezels when viewing typical content
MIUI a bit of mess, mostly due to lack of app drawer
Cameras are aggressively average
Front facing camera location not at all ideal
