Vernee Mix 2 Review – bezel-less phablet in the style of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
The new smartphone Vernee Mix 2, as it is easy to guess from the name, externally copies Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, however, it costs less: for Vernee Mix 2 $ 230 is requested, this is half the base price for Mi Mix 2. Vernee MIX 2 does not tag in the new flagship manufacturer. The device will compete in an affordable price range, but it will receive such a weighty argument as a 6-inch Full HD display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and a dual camera.
Unlike other Chinese companies, the creators of Vernee Mix 2 did not invent anything new, and simply made a virtual copy of the original Mi Mix from Xiaomi with minor changes: a smartphone with a large extended screen that does not have a frame on three sides. The front camera is in the lower right corner.
In general, very small edges around the display are available, however, exactly such that the front speaker can be placed on top.
As already mentioned above, the back cover of Vernee Mix 2 is covered with high-impact glass with a glossy surface, like Samsung’s flagships of recent years. The design of the dual-core resembles the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. The fingerprint reader is at the top center.
All mechanical elements (volume control buttons and the “Power” button) are located on the right side face, 3.5 mm audio jack – on top near the left edge. Hybrid for SIM cards and MicroSD is on the left.
At the bottom of the device in the middle is the USB Type-C connector, the main speaker grille, and the microphone. The frame itself is made of metal. Vernee Mix 2 measures 157.8 mm in length, 75 mm in width and 8.2 mm in height, and weighs 205 grams in weight.
The new smartphone Mix 2 has a 6.0-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1080 × 2160 pixels (Full HD+), an aspect ratio of 18: 9, a matrix density of 402 ppi., A screen brightness of 550k / m2. The device boasts a narrow frame around the screen. It should be noted that such a matrix is now very popular among manufacturers of smartphones from China because it allows you to fit a larger matrix into the dimensions of a smartphone with a display diagonal of 5.5 inches. The screen of the smartphone is protected by a protective glass with 2.5D-effect.
