Our reviews, our unboxing and our focus are usually the latest devices on the market. However, considering that the evolution of smartphones is almost exclusively focused on computational power, some devices of the past years are still profoundly interesting.
In this article, the smartphone to be remembered will be the Xiaomi Mi2S, the small top of the range with Snapdragon 600.
Smartphone not to be forgotten: Xiaomi Mi2S, the small top of the range
Those looking for small-size smartphones with high-performance smartphones are often in trouble, as market trends push for ever larger devices. In fact, Android devices with a display smaller than 4.5 inches are scarce, even more so if search is limited to high end devices.
Given these conditions, here we are talking about the Xiaomi Mi2S, the top Xiaomi range top that with its quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB RAM and 4.3 inch HD display is still a very good device.

Conclusion: Xiaomi Mi2S, a smartphone to be forgotten
As we have seen, the Xiaomi Mi2S is still an absolutely current smartphone, with a processor more than enough to do all sorts of operations, a high-end photo compartment, the same amount of RAM as the latest top-of-the-range gamut, such as Galaxy S5 and HTC M8, now offered at a cheaper price that swings between the 230 and the 250 Euros, depending on the two cuts and any offers.
In addition, with a 4.3 HD display, the smartphone is easy to use with one hand, an increasingly difficult feature to find in Android products.
Currently, the only lack in this terminal is an updated version of Android, as the MIUI is still based on the old Android 4.1. If Xiaomi decided to upgrade Mi2S to KitKat, we would have an excellent terminal on this front. However, it should be said that the smartphone is open to modding, and there are a lot of custom ROMs available on the network, which allow it to be upgraded to any version of Android, included 4.4 KitKat.
If your priority is not to have a device of the ultimate model, the Xiaomi Mi2S is a little more valuable jewel, which I used with great pleasure, still decisively able to offer all the power it needs.
