The edges are filled with connectivity ports and its one edge has volume keys and power button while the other one resides with SIM and memory card jacket. Top edge has audio jack and mic while the bottom edge has speakers and microUSB connector.

Back body of Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has LED flash light with a back camera lens at its top side. Fingerprint Scanner is marked also on the back body whereas rest of the body is full simple.

Some main effects of Xiaomi Mi max 2 are normal, lomo, color pop, rustic, lcy and many others. These all are effects which we used to enhance the beauty of our picture with some attractive and different shades.

If we focus some object then we got a circle which we can use to increase or decrease its brightness which is a new feature. It doesn’t have any separate setting menu because all the settings are present according to the chosen mode.

Front Camera of Xiaomi Mi Max 2:

Xioami Mi Max 2 doesn’t perform well only in back camera because its front camera has also performed a very extraordinary performance with its 5MP lens.

The selfie camera has provided us high detailed, high-contrast and energetic colors. The dynamic range is also very good in Xiaomi mi max 2.

Battery of Xiaomi Mi Max 2:

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 best point is its big and fixed Li-ion big battery of 5300 mAh which is present inside the removable back cover. It has 2A charger with it which will completely charge the device in almost one and half hour.

The battery will easily provide us the standby time of 9-10 hours consecutively. Excessive usage of 4G/3G/2G or game play will reduce the battery quickly otherwise it can provide you a better time for normal usage.It has Qualcomm chip set which also works as battery saving function.

Memory of Xiaomi Mi Max 2:

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has perfect memory combination because it has 64GB ROM and 4GB RAM that makes a perfect sense. Every good mid-range device is coming up with almost these memory combination.

We can increase its internal days with the access of memory card which supports up to 256GB. The bad part is we have to make a sacrifice on using memory card because Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has the same slot for SIM-2 and memory card. Although 64GB internal memory is a very good choice even without a memory card if load your device with applications and videos than you must have to use the card.
