Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold vs Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2

Xiaomi announced the return of the Mi Mix series to the spotlight again, as a foldable phone was launched which is Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, which adopts the same form factor as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.

This is exactly why we decided to compare these two amazing phones. Has Xiaomi succeeded in making a distinct phone that differs from all other competing phones, or Galaxy Z Fold 2 still the best option? The comparison of price and specifications in the next lines will help you find this out.

Design

As mentioned in the introduction, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 share the same form factor: unlike the recently unveiled Huawei Mate X2, they both come with an internally foldable screen and a traditional, non-foldable secondary screen externally, in case You want to use them as regular phones.

Personally, I lean towards the design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 due to its more elegant camera module. Moreover, it has a more compact structure, durability, also thin and lighter.

On the other hand, Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold comes with larger displays: both the foldable and the external screen have a wider diagonal. Moreover, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold comes in an additional ceramic version designed with better materials.

Display

When it comes to screens, we have similar specifications as both phones feature premium AMOLED displays. Although it is a phone made by Xiaomi, the Mi Mix Fold display is made by Samsung. In both devices, we have 2K folding AMOLED panels.

But on paper, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is superior thanks to its 120Hz refresh rate, while the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold has a standard 60Hz refresh rate.

If we talk about non-foldable outdoor screens, then the Mi Mix Fold wins as it has a 6.52 inch external display, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 outdoor screen, here we have a refresh rate of 90Hz and Dolby Vision.

Internal Hardware

The Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold is the most powerful foldable phone ever made: it is powered by the paired Snapdragon 888 processor, with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with a weaker processor which is Snapdragon 865 Plus but it is still a class leader for sure as it sits somewhere between Snapdragon 865 and 870.

We have a RAM capacity of 12 GB with an internal storage space of 512 GB. Although Mi Mix Fold was launched in 2021, it comes with Android 10 OS, just like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. But the latter has already got the Android 11 update.

Camera

It's still too early to say which best camera phone is here. The Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold comes with a 108MP main camera, an 8MP telephoto sensor with 3x true optical zoom, and a 13MP ultra-wide lens.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has three 12MP cameras with dual OIS, unlike the Mi Mix Fold with 2x optical zoom and an ultra-wide lens. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is definitely better when it comes to front cameras.

Battery

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold has a bigger battery, and with its standard screen refresh rate, it should outlast the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 in most scenarios. It also comes with a more powerful 67W fast charging. However, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 outperforms overall as it supports both wireless and reverse charging, while the Mi Mix Fold does not support these technologies.

Price

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold was revealed in China with a starting price of $ 1530, while the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is currently only priced at $ 1,200. Although the Mi Mix Fold is a newly announced foldable phone, it doesn't outperform Samsung in all aspects. Xiaomi has better internal specifications and a bigger battery, but with the Galaxy Z Fold 2, we have wireless charging support and a better internal screen. Which phone would you choose?
