Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 hands-on evaluation: is the price of 8999 yuan worth it?

The release of the new Xiaomi folding screen MIX Fold2 is "sold out", which makes all doubts surrounding this model disappear. In August 2021, Xiaomi's first-generation folding screen MIX Fold was released. As the first domestic manufacturer to launch a folding screen outside of Huawei, this model claimed to have lowered the price of the folding screen, but it did not receive good reviews. The issue of screen ratio and quality control has been dubbed the "remote control". On August 11, Lei Jun released the Xiaomi folding screen mobile phone MIX Fold 2 at the anniversary speech, and then in the first sale on August 16, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 was sold out in 5 minutes. This achievement washed away last year's "remote control" The shame also handed in a satisfactory answer for Xiaomi's impact on the high-end road. Since the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 has not been grabbed online, we will go to Xiaomi's home to conduct a hands-on evaluation of this phone.
  • Amazing thin and light feel
Previously, many digital bloggers said that Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 would not disappoint, but after using the first It may be difficult for users of a generation of MIX Fold to jump out of the inherent impression of this model. However, the moment Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 got started, its exquisiteness and high value instantly conquered me. The physical machine used by the golden model machine is black, and the overall feeling is restrained and refined. The hinges are very tight, not as loose and loose as the first generation. It is said that the golden color scheme has a higher value. It is a pity that I have not seen the real thing. There is only one model that can see the leopard. Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is mainly thin and light. Official data shows that the thickness of the real phone is only 5.4mm, and the thickness of the folded is only 11.2mm. This kind of thinness is only data on paper, and it is "amazing" when you hold it in your hand. One of the reasons why the 11.2mm foldable foldable screen mobile phone has not become a mainstream model since its birth in 2018 is that it is too thick and too commercial, while Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 does the opposite, with " "Slim" angle overtaking at this angle meets many people's expectations for lightweight folding screens.
  • Controversial defects and creases
However, while being thin and light, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 also sacrifices some things, such as the hinge design, which cannot be Hover, friends who are used to half-folding the folding screen should pay attention; for another example, there is no camera on the inner screen, and business people who need video conferencing should also pay attention to their own needs. A complete 8.02-inch inner screen However, there is no camera in the inner screen, everyone has different opinions. While some netizens think that it is inconvenient to have no camera, there are also netizens who think that the inner screen has no "knife", so it can be perfect. The inner screen of Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 uses an 8.02-inch Eco²OLED material screen, and the outer screen is a 6.56-inch 1080P resolution E5 material screen. The ratio of the external screen is 21:9. This ratio is similar to that of a straight-screen phone. It is finally no longer a "remote control". In addition, the MIX Fold 2 is thin and light enough, so it feels similar to holding a straight-screen mobile phone in the folded form. The 21:9 aspect ratio of the external screen is extremely comfortable. For folding screen mobile phones, everyone is most concerned about the problem of creases. The average depth of the crease officially given by Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is 0.15mm, which is very flat. In fact, the intuitive feeling of hand experience is that the crease has not been eliminated, but the front is not obvious, and it is more obvious when the side is facing the light. The crease when facing the light on the side is the crease alone, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 can definitely be the first echelon in the folding screen track.
  • Xiaomi finally understood the meaning of folding screen
After talking about the appearance and feel, let’s talk about the feeling of use. With the support of Snapdragon 8+ and Xiaomi's self-developed MIUI Fold13 system, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is very smooth, from the outer screen to the inner screen, from the inner screen to the outer screen is extremely smooth. Entering the desktop, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 adjusts the page logic to display more applications when unfolding, rather than becoming a landscape mode. In addition, the system of Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 has also made the calendar, clock and other APPs into a large-screen mode with more comfortable proportions, rather than simply stretching; the new split-screen gesture, three-finger horizontal swipe can start the split-screen, you can It is said that Xiaomi finally understood the meaning of the folding screen this time. For gamers, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 also provides a more in-depth screen ratio adaptation solution. You can watch the guide while playing games, and you can use the "double small window" mode to "one heart and three uses", and play games at the same time. , brush drama, brush Weibo.
  • Image capabilities under the blessing of Leica
Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is a collision between a folding screen and Leica, IMX766 + 13 million pixels super wide-angle + 8 million pixels The focal length of the portrait, in terms of image configuration specifications, is far less than that of the 12S Ultra, but it is slightly higher than that of the Xiaomi Mi 12. Coupled with Leica's adjustment, it is full of "Lei" flavor. Since the display machine cannot be taken out of the storefront, there is no way to see the imaging effect under natural light. Color details are vivid in store lighting. Like the Mi 12S series, the Mi MIX Fold 2 also has two modes: "Leica Vivid" and "Leica Classic", and users can choose according to their color preferences. However, IMX766 is a "senior" sensor after all. Due to the limitations of hardware, in places with insufficient light, the performance of Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 will definitely be mediocre, and the image quality will also be affected. It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 supports functions such as Dolby Vision video recording, fast night shooting and tracking of everything. As a folding screen mobile phone, the image performance is quite good.
  • Other
The shortcoming of folding screen mobile phones is battery life. Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is equipped with a 4500mAh battery, which is limited by the form of folding screen mobile phones. The seemingly small battery capacity is also not easy. Since it is a demonstration prototype, we cannot conduct a first-hand battery life test, and can only cite the network test results. The data shows that under the "smart refresh rate", Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 consumes 8% of power for one hour of video playback; at a refresh rate of 120Hz, the power consumption of one-hour video playback is 18%. Therefore, if you want longer battery life, it is recommended that users choose "smart refresh rate".
  • Summary
Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 looks amazing, but it seeks stability in every corner. It has become a product that is running wildly on the road of pursuing thinness and lightness. The meaning of the thin and light folding screen is probably that after the freshness brought by the folding screen has passed, it will not be abandoned because of the heavy feeling. Finally, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is scored 70 points. The advantages and shortcomings are clearly laid out on the table, and you can make a choice considering your own needs. At present, this mobile phone is sold out both online and offline. If the price will not dive in a short period of time, it can be regarded as a particularly successful product. It is recommended that everyone try it out, it will have a different feeling. .
