Best Xiaomi smartphones

Xiaomi does not exist for so long, but has already managed to go from the “Chinese upstart” to a solid company that produces original and original products. Which of their gadgets Xiaomi exactly can be proud of?

There are a lot of Chinese firms producing smartphones, but Xiaomi is perhaps the most famous of them. This manufacturer managed to achieve world recognition amazingly quickly, because the company was founded only in 2010 - Lenovo and Huawei , which originated back in the 80s, shrug their shoulders in astonishment. In Russia, Xiaomi is very popular - among domestic users there are a lot of those who are waiting for the release of a new item from a Chinese company with the same trepidation as the appearance of a new iPhone .

What is the secret of Xiaomi? The fact that the company seeks to offer devices with an ideal price-quality ratio. Xiaomi products are the best proof that the poor quality of Chinese electronics is just a stupid myth. Given that Xiaomi gadgets are assembled no worse than conventional Samsung, they cost significantly less.

In this article, we will present the best Xiaomi smartphones, selected according to certain criteria. The reader will have the opportunity to see how diverse the range of the company.

The best in everything - Xiaomi Mi 6

  • Operating system: Android 7.1 firmware MIUI 8
  • Processor: 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
  • Screen: 5.15 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 3350 mAh
  • RAM: 6 GB
  • Built-in storage : 128 GB

Price: from 24 990 rubles

Xiaomi Mi 6 - not the most expensive and not the largest smartphone of the Chinese manufacturer, but from the point of view of price and functionality, it will set the heat to all modern flagships.

The main advantage of Mi 6 is performance. The device is equipped with a Snapdragon 835 chipset - for a second, exactly the same installed in the "living legend" Samsung Galaxy S8 (for the United States). Synthetic tests of the AnTuTu benchmark confirmed that Xiaomi is even faster than Samsung - from the current smartphones, Mi 6 is second to iPhone 7 Plus.

Mi 6 could claim the championship in another nomination - the best camera phone from Xiaomi. The gadget is equipped with a dual 12-megapixel camera with a wide-angle and telephoto lens. This configuration makes it possible to make impressive portrait photos - with the effect of blurring the background. An important "feature" of the camera is a 2x optical zoom, which allows you to zoom in on objects without losing quality. Now on the market a few number of gadgets can boast such an advantage.

Virtues

  • Highest performance.
  • Reasonable price.
  • Moisture protection - the smartphone conforms to the IP standard
  • Support fast charging .
  • Dual camera with optical zoom.
  • Compact size is rather an advantage; The gadget will be a real find for someone who is tired of "shovels".

disadvantages

  • No 3.5-jack jack (for headphones).
  • No flash card slot.

Best Budget Smartphone - Xiaomi Redmi 4X

  • Operating system: Android 6.0, MIUI 8 firmware
  • Processor: 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435
  • Screen: 5 inches, HD resolution
  • Battery: 4100 mAh
  • RAM: 3 GB
  • Built-in storage : 32 GB

Price: from 7 230 rubles

For a modest amount, the Redmi 4X buyer gets a thin gadget with an attractive metallic design and a capacious battery that provides up to 2 days of battery life with intensive use - with social networks and “toys”. The Xiaomi development team did a great job so that their device could boast of independence from the outlet - in particular, it carried out optimization at the system level.

The obvious advantage of the Redmi 4X is the presence of a large number of sensors and sensors. The smartphone is equipped with a fingerprint sensor , which allows you to access personal information quickly, without entering a password - but this will surprise no one. It is much more curious that the device has an infrared port. Of course, using this sensor to transfer data will not work - but it can be used to control home appliances.

Speaking of cons, it should be noted that the Redmi 4X is unlikely to please fans of photo art. Like all 4th generation Redmi smartphones, this camera is quite weak.

Virtues

  • The minimum cost.
  • Good autonomy.
  • High-quality assembly.
  • The presence of infrared port and fingerprint sensor.

disadvantages

  • The processor is "not modern."
  • Mediocre back camera.

The most beautiful smartphone - Xiaomi Mi Note 2

  • Operating system: Android 6.0, MIUI 8 firmware
  • Processor: 4-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821
  • Screen: 5.7 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 4070 mAh
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Built-in storage : 64 GB

Price: from 20 490 rubles

Mi Note 2 is often called the most controversial Xiaomi smartphone. Given that this gadget has a lot of hardware and technical flaws, it looks really impressive. The thin body is made of metal, covered with protective 3D glass from Gorilla Glass and is completely devoid of sharp corners. The display is curved on the sides and smoothly passes into the side ends. The design of the smartphone from Xiaomi is unusual, but the thought that there is a “Chinese” in front of you does not arise - on the contrary, the Mi Note 2 looks even prettier than the revolutionary Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Why then curse this gadget? First of all, for the quality of the picture on the display. The Mi Note 2 OLED screen has big adaptability problems: there is not enough backlight in the sunlight, in the dark the screen, on the contrary, is so bright that it blinds. The camera also deserves criticism - its resolution is large (23 megapixels), but it makes little sense for this. In the dark, Xiaomi Mi Note 2 photographs worse than analogs - and besides, it does not support optical stabilization.

Virtues

  • Impressive and “expensive” appearance.
  • Long autonomous work, due not only to the capacity of the battery, but also the presence of the OLED-matrix, which "eats" the battery charge to a minimum.
  • High performance.
  • Availability of fingerprint scanner and infrared port.

disadvantages

  • Mediocre camera without optical stabilization.
  • No flash card slot.

Smartphone with Capacity Battery - Xiaomi Mi Max 2

  • Operating system: Android 7.0, MIUI 8 firmware
  • Processor: 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625
  • Screen: 6.4 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 5300 mAh
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Built-in storage : 64 GB

Price: from 20 490 rubles

Xiaomi company pays great attention to the autonomy of all their smartphones. However, among its gadgets there is a real “champion” by this criterion - Xiaomi Mi Max 2 . The battery capacity of the Mi Max 2 is 5,300 mAh - which is enough for 7 hours in games with maximum brightness and volume and almost 12 hours of watching movies in FullHD format. The device from Xiaomi is not a champion of the market and will not stand the competition, for example, with Moto Z Play, capable of showing a movie for 25 hours without a break. But the results he demonstrates are more than worthy: modern iPhones and Aipads, like the “predecessor” Mi Max, sit down faster. Here is a video report from Xiaomi confirming this:

The key to a good Mi Max 2 is its energy-efficient Qualcomm 625 processor - just the same on Moto Z Play. The device from Xiaomi “lives” less than a Moto-smartphone only because of an impressive display - the Mi Max 2 with a 6.4-inch screen is considered one of the largest smartphones on the market today.

Virtues

  • The most powerful battery among smartphones Xiaomi (in the middle of 2017).
  • Stereo, which is provided by a dual speaker.
  • Unique metallic design.
  • Large screen.

disadvantages

  • The camera takes mediocre pictures - despite the increased pixel size.
  • Performance is lower than the first Mi Max.

Best Screen Smartphone - Xiaomi Mi MIX

  • Operating system: Android 6.0, MIUI 8 firmware
  • Processor: 4-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821
  • Screen: 6.4 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 4400 mAh
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Built-in storage : 128 GB

Price: from 27 490 rubles

Mi MIX could compete for the title of the most beautiful smartphone from Xiaomi, because the development of the look of this gadget Chinese manufacturer attracted the French designer Philippe Starck, who is known as the creator of the yacht Steve Jobs. However, two nominations for one device are still too much, and the main advantage of Mi MIX is the screen.

The Mi MIX display is deprived not only of the side frames, but also the top one - because of which the smartphone looks like a stranger from a distant future. Not Xiaomi invented such a design concept (the idea belongs to Sharp ) - but it was she who first introduced the world to it, bringing the Mi MIX to the international market. The screen has an unusual aspect ratio of 17: 9 and a resolution of 2040 × 1080 pixels, which is quite enough to use the device comfortably. In addition, the display occupies almost 85% of the frontal surface; This result is one of the best in the world!

Virtues

  • Rugged ceramic body.
  • The display is impressive in size, occupying almost the entire frontal surface.
  • Excellent performance.
  • Support fast charging.
  • Availability of NFC module.

disadvantages

  • Big weight - more than 200 grams.
  • The minimum number of accessories on sale.

Conclusion

For 2017, the company Xiaomi offers 2 lines of smartphones: Redmi (budget) and Mi (premium). Of course, the most unusual and most functional gadgets belong to the second line, but the first does not do without interesting devices. The Redmi 4X has everything to satisfy the requirements of most consumers.

The omission of the Xiaomi company is that it does not represent in the ultrabudget segment - that is, it does not sell gadgets for less than 5,000 rubles. However, there are smartphones in the company's catalog, the prices of which are close to this mark - for example, the modest Redmi 4A with 16 GB in Russia can be found for 6,000 rubles.
