Display and cameras
The 5.99 inch display is almost fully bezel-less and is a 18:9 aspect ratio widescreen. 2160 x 1080 px HD resolution is perfect for watching movies, playing games or web browsing. The display, just like the back cover, is protected by durable 2.5D glass resistant to scratches and cracks, which is also waterproof and dustproof. Obviously, you shouldn’t immerse it in water, but it is sufficiently protected against accidental splashes or exposure to rain.
You will also find here the best cameras that have been used in Oukitel’s phones so far and MIX 2 can be definitely described as a smartphone for photographers. The 13.0 MP front camera is perfect for taking crystal clear selfies and features powerful flash for night scenes and autofocus. Rear camera combines 21.0MP and 2.0MP lenses with a Samsung imaging sensor, which allows you to make great artistic bokeh effect photos or even shoot 4K videos.
Performance and battery
Until now, Oukitel’s smartphones haven’t been known for the most powerful performance, but MIX 2 definitely features hardware that should appease demanding users. Octa-Core Helio P25 CPU is clocked at 2.39 GHz and along with 6 GB RAM, MIX 2 performance might be compared to latest Xiaomi smartphones. It also has 64 GB internal memory and this is probably the first phone that supports 512 GB memory cards – half a terabyte will certainly be more than enough for all your needs!
Decent battery is necessary to power a large six-inch display and its 4080 mAh battery lasts for 8 hours of continuous video playback in Full HD or 22 hours of 3G calls. Compared to the previous Oukitel MIX, this battery should run about 4 hours longer when fully charged. It also uses Quick Charge technology, which allows you to recharge your smartphone to 100% in just 90 minutes.
A dashing bezel-less touch screen and a decent battery makes MIX 2 a perfect smartphone for multimedia apps like video players, games and e-book readers. It’s not a small and lightweight phone that would fit in your pocket though – it weighs as much as 244 grams – but given its size, it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. And most importantly, you can buy MIX 2 at GearBest at a great release price of $199 with free shipping worldwide.
