Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8, S8 vs LG V30 vs Essential Phone: "bezel-less" size comparison

Xiaomi, a company that is big in China, but has no official presence in the United States (and very little in Europe), has launched its best phone yet: the bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix 2.
The Mi Mix 2 is the successor of what’s arguably the first bezel-less phone: last year’s gigantic, 6.44-inch Mi Mix.
The original Mi Mix was deemed a “concept phone” and sold in limited quantities, and it never really proved all that practical, not least because of its huge size. The new Mi Mix 2, however, has taken some valuable lessons …

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 specs comparison versus the Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30

Xiaomi just unveiled another bezel-less monster to succeed its last-year Mi MIX, which was one of the first phones to kick-start the design trend. Although that one was mostly a proof of concept, the second-gen Mi Mix appears to be much-more fleshed out consumer product. Retaining the same old bezel-busting aesthetics and doubling down with some serious hardware under the hood, the Mi MIX 2 would likely give any other phone out there a serious run for the money.

Yet, there’s always the availability issue with Xiaomi’s phones, which are still a fata morgana …

Galaxy Note 8 or LG V30: which one has your eye (and potentially your money?)

So, both Samsung and LG have unveiled their top-tier devices for H2 2017 and both of them are phablets. Each aims at its own niche — Sammy’s Note 8 has the S Pen and some productivity features, the LG V30 has the quad-DAC and photo / video features.
