Samsung is the first brand to take the idea of curved screen, Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Xiaomi also make the first attempt on its year-end smartphone, MI Note 2 to use dual curved screen. Xiaomi MI Note 2 and Note 7 both adopt 5.7inch screen but S7 Edge with 5.5inch.

Therefore, in screen Samsung Note 7 still wins.



Xiaomi MI Note is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 SoC clocked at 2.35GHz processor, but Note 7 uses Samsung Exynos 8890 chipset and S7 Edge comes with Snapdragon 820 processor, which Snapdragon 821 has not been released at that time. In terms of performance, of course Snapdragon 821 CPU is the best until now compared with other Snapdragon chipsets. As for Samsung chipset, it will also as powerful as Snapdragon 821. Xiaomi MI Note 2 has two variant, 4GB RAM+64GB variant and a 6GB RAM+128GB variant. But Note 7 only has RAM 4GB ROM 64GB and S7 Edge has RAM 4GB and ROM 32GB,64GB.

Xiaomi MI Note 2 doesn’t come with dual rear camera as Xiaomi mi5s plus, but it’s first time to use largest pixels in back camera with  22.56MP f/2.0 Sony IMX 318 sensor and EIS, 4K recording supporting. We really can’t believe Xiaomi make the first trial to improve its camera. But Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and S7 Edge both adopts 12MP main camera with f/1.7 sensor, OIS and 4K recording supporting. As for front camera, Xiaomi MI note 2 comes with 8MP one with IMX268 Sony sensor, f2.0 aperture, and supports beauty 3.0, while Note 7 and S7 edge both only have 5MP front camera with f/1.7 apertures, autofucus and HDR supporting.

We have to praise Xiaomi mi note 2 with 4070mAh big battery capacity while Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge only has 3600mAh and Note 7 with 3500mAh battery, as a large screen phone, the battery should come larger in its capacity. Xiaomi has made it. Meanwhile, they all can support QC3.0, so Xiaomi mi note 2 should have longer battery life in theory. Good Job, Xiaomi.
