I am gonna buy new phone after a month or two, need your opinion about that. What do you prefer Mi8 or Mix 2S (both 6/64gb)
Both phones have their pros and cons. The thing that's holding me from Mi8 is the S-AMOLED screen. The fact that it can burn-in burns me ( :) )
Both are on the same price so that's not a factor at all.

Long story short, do you think Mix 2S is better over Mi8?

I love the mi mix2s even though I bought the mi 8. I wanted to try the AMOLED screen and judge the notch for myself.

I think the mix 2s has better build quality and having an official global rom is always good in my book.

I have a MI Mix 2S and I love it but both devices have almost the sime price tag.
Mi 8 has an AMLOED display while MIX 2S is as IPS display...
MIX 2S don´t have the ugly "notch" :D
Both cameras are equivelent.

For me the big reason here to buy the MI8, is the display (forgetting the ugly "notch")

Mix 2S over the Mi 8 any day of the week :)

Same camera hardware, no notch.

That is what I wanted to hear. Thanks I was 80% sure that I will get Mix 2S bundle with wireless charger.
I don't care about the software really, we have eu roms thats enough. :)

@MarkHUK can you share some photos from the new camera in the Mix 2S?
