QiDi S2 2x2x2

QiYi are now updating their budget non-magnetic line, this new 2x2x2 looks likely to perform nicely for a £4 budget (which is probably how much it will cost but unconfirmed as yet). It is 50mm which is still the standard despite QiYi's two latest flagships being 51mm and comes with the normal vivid QiYi budget colour scheme which is quite distinct from the standard stickerless scheme, the red is really pink and all of the colours are brighter. It also comes with very frosted plastic as have their previous budget lines, I will await to see how good this cube...

X-Man Flare 2x2x2 YouTube review

The X-Man Flare 2x2x2 is the first 2x2x2 to come with changeable magnets, meaning you can change the strength by just moving 3 switches. It retains a QiYi feel, similar to the Valk 2 and QiYi MS but is generally faster but a bit lacking on the corner cutting unfortunately which can lead to some annoying lock-ups. It is definitely a nice 2x2x2 and the cheapest of the main flagship 2x2x2s at the moment at just £13 (despite being the only one with changeable magnet strengths)!

MoYu RS2M review

This is an interesting budget 2x2x2, unfortunately, it does not seem to be better than other budget 2x2x2s for me, some people will like it but it has quite strong magnets and is heavier.

MoYu RS2M available for pre-order

This will be an excellent addition to the current line of budget 2x2x2s despite the stupid name, as we have mentioned in previous blog post, we expect this to be a very good 2x2x2, it is likely to be an opposite feeling cube to the Meilong 2x2x2 M, we expect this to be in stock at the beginning of November and will update on its performance when we can.
