In this article we’ll compare two new smartphones. One of them was announced last month and it’s called LG Stylo 2 (its price will be $170), while the other will hit the stores this month and it will have a gigantic display with a diagonal of 6.44-inch. The latter is called Xiaomi Mi Max (it will cost around $220) and it has better specs than its rival, but more about the two devices we’ll tell you below.
The LG Stylo 2 measures 155 x 79.5 x 7.4 mm and weights 144 grams. The phone is the successor of the G Stylo / G4 Stylus (2015) so it has the same faux metal back, but with a metal frame and stylus and it has physical buttons below the camera, likewise the previous LG G models. Unfortunately, we don’t have any information about how much the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Max will measure and weight, but we can assure you that it will look like the Mi Note, featuring an all metal body and will have a fingerprint scanner in the top center, while the rear camera will be located in the upper left corner.
The LG Stylo 2 has an IPS LCD display of 5.7-inch that supports a resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 258 ppi. The Xiaomi Mi Max comes with a bigger IPS LCD display of 6.44-inch that supports a higher resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 342 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
