The Xiaomi phones have been all over the news a bunch of times over the past week and the Xiaomi Mi3 stands out as a powerhouse. However, there’s another model that interests us today: Xiaomi Mi2S, a newcomer that manages to even beat the Samsung Galaxy S4 in synthetic benchmarks.
The device packs a Snapdragon 600 processor, one that has been greatly optimized in order to beat the likes of Galaxy S4. The handset runs on a Snapdragon 600 quad core a 1.7 GHz Krait 300 processor, that helps the device score a crazy good 25,913 score in AnTuTu. That’s even more than the 25,446 score of the Galaxy S4.
This makes the Mi2S sit at the top of the productivity charts, which is very impressive for a model that’s priced sub $400. The phone comes in two models: a 16 GB one with an 8 megapixel camera selling for $322 off contract and a 32 GB one with a 13 megapixel camera with a $370 price tag. A good thing about this device is that it runs the MIUI custom Android ROM, which some people love much more than the stock software. Xiaomi Mi2S packs 2 GB of RAM and a 4.3 inch 720p display, rounding it up to a bunch of very appealing specs, but not exaggerate flagship style ones.
