VERNEE MIX 2
Hello, Friends! Today, I’m going to take a look at Vernee Mix 2 Review. This is another budget smartphone with bezel-less designed with 6-inch Full HD display. This phone currently retails around 169 dollars at GEAR BEST placing it in the budget mid-range category. This smartphone is also an obvious reference to Xiaomi Mi Mix. So, let’s start-
Design & Build: –
Vernee Mix 2 budget phone also it’s made very high-quality, the smartphone is a hybrid of glass and metal alloys. The front and back panel is made of glass. It looks pretty strong and hardwearing so that’s very good. Over 80%of smartphone being glass and it’s really impressive.
On the front panel, you have a front camera which is located at the bottom right, 6-inch gorgeous display, earpiece and LED notification. On the back side also has very minimalist design has already said it’s made of glass, there is a dual camera in the upper left corner and Flash neck to it and fingerprint reader is located closer to the centre and the fingerprint scanner is very accurate it takes around 1 second to fully unlock the phone.
As a bottom of the phone, you have speaker grilles, USB 2.0 port and on the top, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack and two elastic bands for the antenna. On the right side, you have the volume rocker and power key and on the left side, you have the SIM card slot which the Hybrid slot.
Vernee Mix 2 has 6-inch IPS display with a resolution of Full HD plus. It has 18 by 9 aspect ratio. The colours are nice and vibrant and the contrast levels are spot on. The automatic brightness works nicely even though is not super fast. But in my opinion the screen is always a little too bright, I mean they just look together at the lowest brightness possible. The automatic brightness works good and it can be easily seen in the direct sunlight It has decent touch sensitivity which is accurate. It is also IPS so even at angles image quality does not diminish.
It has a dual Rear camera like iPhone 7 Plus. It’s the same telephoto camera configuration, the main sensor is certain megapixel Sony IMX 258 with wide angles at OIS and secondary is a 5-megapixel sensor with Dual LED flash. The front panel you can find the 8-megapixel sensor.
In daylight, they turn out quite nice with a good amount of detail and nice colours even though in my opinion they’re little undersaturated.
I low-light pictures are not as good as I daylight, even though sometimes you can actually take good pictures but it’s really difficult.
Also, the front-facing camera takes nice ones and actually I was surprised I thought it was good but it was really worse and the bokeh effect is almost useless.
Vernee Mix 2 has good performance for a budget smartphone. It’s powered by MediaTek Helio P25 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage with support for microSD memory cards. The manufacturer said that new chipset to reduce the power consumption to 25% compared to the last generation. It’s a great balance between good performance and energy saving.
Gaming though I think is bottleneck by the huge screen resolutions as some games like Asphalt 88 to encounter a bit more slowdowns and FPS drops. In consolation through all the games that I have tested are still very playable and the thermals are quite good.
It comes with Vernee OS based on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box but when you’ll see it’s not that different from Android Stock. The only adds a few minor features like some gestures and such but I actually don’t like because of the feelings and the design of the Apps. But it also provides some useful features such as motion gesture, display setup status bar.
There’s one feature that is really found useful in Android 7.0 it’s also in the Vernee OS based on the Android 7.0 is the dual screen feature. You can use two apps at the same time by keeping press the multitasking button. I should say the user interface works very fast and during my review, I didn’t notice any lags and breaks.
Connectivity of the Vernee Mix 2 is really awesome. It supports both Wi-Fi Dual band. It has Bluetooth 4.0 that makes connecting to Bluetooth devices easy and more stable. The GPS works really great and it’s very accurate.
Top one you can find it in the middle of the top, it’s very small but you can hear the almost clear voice and sometimes I had a few issues but there is nothing much to say. The kind of issue I noticed is the bottom speaker when making calls with the speakers, it is not as loud as while like of listening music or playing games. When music and games are really loud but making calls it’s actually quite difficult so I think its just a software bug.
The Vernee Mix 2 has 4200 milliamp-hours battery that can last you a whole day without having to charge it again. You just unplug it in the morning 100% and by the end of the day it will be around if you use it normally around 30% but if you use it a lot you will see around 10%. It has fast charging feature, for this huge battery, it takes only around 1 hour to fully charge that’s incredibly fast by using also a micro USB cable.
Overall, the Vernee Mix 2 has really impressive design beside minimal bezel around the screen, it has good 6-inch full HD display, very accurate and fast fingerprint sensor, powerful hardware, better dual camera and great battery life. So, for just 169 dollars you are getting a really good smartphone.
