ReceptionEdit

In August 2017, Mi MIX 2 was awarded the IDEA Gold Award for its design.

In reviews, the general feedback was favorable, with critics praising the more accessible elements of it over the original Mi MIX such as worldwide LTE bands, a lower price than the original Mi MIX, a smaller display and a traditional earpiece speaker to replace the piezoelectric speaker in the original Mi Mix.

However, users (especially in France) report that the phone has issues managing 4G/4G+ connections. While connected to the 4G network, the phone has issues in handling the handover between cells, which disconnects the internet and it needs several seconds for the connection to be restored (even though the phone indicates strong signal and connection). Web pages do not load, VoIP calls (Whatsapp and Viber, etc.) get disconnected. Issue was fixed by software update

Android 9.0 "Pie" was released for the Mi MIX 2S on 30 October 2018.

Android 10.0 "Q" together with MIUI 11 will be released for the Mi MIX 2S by end of 2019.
