Neither the Mi 8 nor the Mi Mix 2S is an exception. The combination between the two sensors makes possible a couple of useful features, including 2X optical zoom and the portrait mode. First and foremost, the Mi 8 Explorer is one of the first phones in the world to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor, which uses pressure sensitivity to unlock the device.

When light is mixed or more limited we found the camera results a bit disappointing. I have to say this phone has so far surpassed my expectations.
