The Chinese handset maker, Xiaomi has been picking up pace when it comes to smartphone launches in India. Xiaomi has recently launched its third iteration of Redmi Note and the device has taken off the shelves in India. Now, the handset maker is all set to launch a new smartphone called Mi Note 2, which is yet another impressive smartphone with stellar specifications. For those who like Xiaomi products, here is a brief overview of the handset.
Why Should You buy?
Corning Gorilla Glass: One of the biggest worry for anyone who owns a phablet smartphone is to accidentally drop the handset and cracking the display. However, the Corning Gorilla Glass layer on the display of this handset takes care of the issue. The Gorilla Glass layer on top of the display makes it scratch and shatter resistant.
Quad HD display with curved edges: Another important highlight of the handset is related to the display as well as it comes with a Quad HD resolution. The resolution makes for a crisp visual quality, making it an ideal handset for multimedia and gaming lovers.
Powerful battery: Having a powerful handset with small battery makes no sense as you do not get to use it to full half the time. Mi Note 2 on the other hand has been equipped with a massive 4070 mAh battery, which when used moderately will give atleast a day's worth of usage.
Powerful cameras: Before buying a smartphone, the first question that anyone asks is how good is the camera on it. Xiaomi has been known for its camera module since the very first Mi3 handset launched by the brand. Mi Note 2 is no exception as it comes with a powerful 23 Megapixels on the rear panel and 8 Megapixels on the front. This handset also happens to be the first Xiaomi device to come with an 8 Megapixels front selfie camera.
Sunlight Display Pro and Reading mode: Xiaomi has also equipped the handset with modes like Sunlight Display Pro and Reading mode to enhance the display. The sunlight display pro mode makes the display of the handset legible in the direct sunlight as well. On the contrary, Reading mode is used for when you are in low light conditions and worried about hurting your eyesight by constantly staring at the brightly illuminated display.
Sony Xperia XA Ultra: The only alternative that comes to the mind while thinking of an alternative to the Mi Note 2 is Xperia XA Ultra. This handset does not only look identical but has better brand backing and more importantly is already available in the Indian handset market.
