The YuXin Kylin V2 M is the 2nd version of the Kylin puzzle. This upgraded version features tiles instead of stickers for durability and even includes magnets to reduce overshoot. Overall, this upgraded magnetic Kylin V2 is a very impressive puzzle

I'm not a huge fan of YuXin cubes (MoYu and QiYi are more to my taste), but thought I'd give this one a go.
Out of the box my cube was dry and tight. After lube and adjusting the screws it's still a bit stiff. The magnetic strength is quite low, and I find the resistance from the plastic as the slices rub together is actually stronger than the magnets. The cube is pretty stable though, and the transparent version is a visual change.
In the same price range you can get a Thunderclap v3, a QiYi MS, a MF3RS3 or a RS3 M 2020 - all are much better cubes (especially the RS3 2020 - you cannot get a better cube for the money!)
Smooth turning, good corner cutting. Good that it is magnetic at this price range. I prefer the tiles to stickered cubes as they can't come off (and you can annoy non-cubers who just peel the stickers off). A proper stickerless version would have been even better though. It's not as good as some more expensive cubes but this does cost only two quid more than a Rubik's brand (eurgh).
I bought this cube not expecting much, but it blew me away with how amazing it is, this is without a doubt the best cube for under £20. The speed is excellent, the turning is smooth and slightly clacky, the magnets complement the cube very nicely, the only negative about the cube is that the corner cutting doesn't match the more expensive flagships, but for the price I can't complain
I like this cube. I have more expensive cubes, and i find myself picking up the Kylin V2 M just as much. Use some fast lube on it and it becomes very quiet and smooth. Out of the box it does require some loosening to improve corner cutting but it's really fine if you turn accurately. The tiles are something i like, but the colours are too dull on this cube and the yellow and white are easily confused in bad light. If you are looking for a good cube and have a budget, i totally recommend this, and in the price range would give it 9.5/10. If you don't have a budget, when you buy something more expensive - get the Kylin V2 M too! If the tiles were true half brights it would be almost perfect for me. Lastly, i think the factory magnets included are the right strength for the cube. This cube is stable and solid. They really should have called this "The Little Gem".
I got my kylin out if the box and it was really tight, but after loosening the tensions it was nice and stable. The tiles look very nice and I’d recommend for a good budget magnetic cube.👍🏼
