#XiaomiMiNote2 #GalaxyNote7 – Xiaomi Mi Note 2 News: Chinese Phone Has Same Design As Samsung Galaxy Note 7 : Since Samsung discontinued the Galaxy Note 7 over the exploding battery issue, the Xiaomi Mi Note is no longer a smartphone clone which Chinese phone makers have been accused of. With the demise of the Galaxy Note 7, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 became a ‘worthy alternative.”
Although the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 has the same design as the Galaxy Note 7, it is not as refined as the controversial Samsung phone. Android Authority notes the thicker bezel on the sides of the made-in-China smartphone.
The thicker bezel made the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 wider and provided a clearer and sharper distinction in the way the metal and glass meet on the sides. But beyond that difference, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 also has a curved glass on the back and side which it calls 3D glass. The chassis is a metal frame.
However, unlike the Galaxy Note 7, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 lacks the S-pen stylus. Instead at the bottom of the smartphone is a USB Type –C port with a single speaker unit and microphone beside it. On top of the smartphone is a headphone and an IR blaster to control the TV and other appliances.
Other features of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 include a 5.7-inch screen with 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 22.5MP back camera and run by a Snapdragon 821 SoC chip. Its Android user interface is the MIUI 8.0, the newest version of Xiaomi’s interface, Slash & Gear reports.
Users must be familiar with Chinese character to work their way with some of the apps of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. But its international edition has Google Play, allowing phone owners to comfortably install and run all the same apps on other Android smartphones.
