Just a notch above the MIX 2S

from AndroidPIT

If you can't survive without an OLED display because of the habit of the colors offered or the AOD and you're willing to live with a notch, Xiaomi Mi 8 will not disappoint you. Personally, I prefer the quality of the display of Mi 8 even if it is only slightly better than MIX 2S, though the MIX remains my favorite of the two overall.
