A must have for fans of Phablets

I think the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is a worthy successor. It continues, what makes it great in the first place. Ultra long battery life, great connectivity and screen. The rear camera also offers similar performance to the Xiaomi Mi6, minus the lack of OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). Gaming performance is surprisingly good, I only experienced micro stutters on gaming. Overall, it is the best Phablet that I have tested of 2017.
