Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 Announced: Android Smartphone

Xiaomi has been producing excellent phones for years now, and are the 5th largest smartphone company in the world. Availability in the UK is not always great, general you have to import via one of the big Chinese e-tailers such as Gearbest.

I have reviewed a lot of the FRITZ!Box products now, this German company may not be a household name in the UK but they dominate DSL hardware market in the EU. I have always found their hardware to be excellent and the new FRITZ!Box 7590 is their latest flagship offering. The FRITZ!Box 7590 isn’t actually available in the UK yet, so my sample is the EU plug version. As with many flagship routers, its range of features is extensive, and FRITZ!Box differentiate themselves from the likes of Asus and Netgear by having a full telephone solution built into this...
