Which Xiaomi mobile would you opt for?
Between 2015 and so far in 2016, Xiaomi has launched 21 different phones to the market. They seem few, but when you go to renew your mobile is not easy to stay with a unique alternative to the more than twenty that offers a manufacturer in its catalog. It all depends on your preferences and budget, and therefore we have prepared a quick guide that we hope to resolve the question most often repeated around this manufacturer: Which Xiaomi mobile would you opt for?
To begin with , the first thing you should know is that there are four different ranges in mobile Xiaomi : Xiaomi redmi , Xiaomi redmi Note , Xiaomi Mi and Xiaomi Mi Note , in addition to the different variants “Pro” or “Prime” that there are some Models.
It ‘s easy to get lost among so variant, and we believe that the best way to bring order to this jerogrífico mobile passes organize both in terms of price, from the cheapest to the most expensive, and depending on their size, from those of 5 “to phablets . So, based on your budget plus your size preferences, these are mobile Xiaomi probably best fit your search.
In 2016, the most balanced range of Xiaomi is the redmi 3 , and is also the range that is now more popular among users who want to buy a phone of this brand. Hence Xiaomi has launched not one, not two, not three variants of this family, but four different models: redmi 3 ,redmi 3 Pro , redmi 3s and redmi Prime 3s . But relax, because differentiate from one another is not as complicated as it seems.
The first thing to know is that the redmi 3 does not incorporate fingerprint reader : the redmi 3 Pro , theredmi 3s and redmi Prime 3s , however, did they bring. And there is a very important detail in performance: even though on paper the redmi 3 and redmi 3 Pro have a bit more powerful (the processorSnapdragon 616 ), the processor of redmi 3s and redmi 3s Prime ( Snapdragon 430 ) is quite newest , and is also backed by a better GPU ( Adreno 505 regarding the Adreno 405 of the other two models).
As for similarities, all redmi 3 have the same screen (IPS LCD 5 ” with resolution HD ), the same size sensor in the main camera (13 megapixels), microSD card slot and a battery capacity in the four cases is4,100 mAh . Design is not that they are so far from each other, and as we speak phone prices ranging between 100 and 200 euros.
On the other hand, if you have some patience you should know that it is only a matter of days the newXiaomi redmi Pro start being sold in Chinese stores for a price that will leave 200 euros. We talk about a phone that comes with a screen of 5.5 “(Full HD), an MediaTek Helio X20 processor, a dual-camera principal, fingerprint reader on the front, 3 GB of RAM … and, if you upload a little budget, you can also choose the version that brings the Helio X25 processor and 4GB of RAM.
Redmi Xiaomi Note 3 something big but not spend
The Xiaomi redmi Note 3 is the ultimate alternative if you are looking for a phablet Xiaomi, and it is a relatively recent model, as it was presented in February 2016. It is not as “big” as it seems, since with its 5, 5 inches(Full HD, btw) is within the reasonable size that can have a phablet. As for its features, get used to the idea that it is not a mobile TOP, but neither is it going to fall short by much performance you push yourself: the processor is a MediaTek Helio X10 eight – core, has 2-3 GB of RAM ( it is recommended you purchase version 3 GB), 16-32 GB of internal memory (with microSD), he has fingerprint reader and comes with a 4,000 mAh battery.
Yes, revises very well what version of Note 3 you buy , because there is one that incorporates a processor Snapdragon 650 (to give you an idea, is the same as the Sony Xperia X ) instead of the processor MediaTek, and theory is the “Pro” version. Which we had the chance to try was the version that brought the Helio X10 processor, keep that in mind when reading the review.
Xiaomi Mi Max, if you’re crazy enough to carry a mobile 6.4-inch
Few people know who is willing to carry in your pocket a mobile of 6.44 inches , but to taste the colors. If you’re looking for something that goes beyond a phablet do not think more, because larger few phones that Xiaomi Mi Max you’ll find on the market.
All you have to consider before buying is that there are two different versions of processor (one with a Snapdragon 650 and another with a Snapdragon 652), and although the internal memory is expandable by microSD, you will see that there are different capabilities storage: 32, 64 and 128 GB are issues that are getting.
Xiaomi Mi 5, the top-of-range
And what I can tell about the Xiaomi Mi 5 have not read so far. It is the mobile TOP Xiaomi, and has all the features you can ask for in a flagship 2016: screen 5.15 ” with resolutionFull HD , processor Snapdragon 820 , 3GB of RAM, 32/64/128 GB ( this latest version brings 4 GB of RAM) of internal memory, 16 megapixel main camera, a curved design the most elegant, fingerprint reader, USB Type-C, 3,000 mAh battery … not cheap, nobody says that it is, but it is the most complete option that you can find right now in the catalog of Xiaomi.
But keep in mind one thing: a little less than what it costs the My 5 also can you raise the purchase Xiaomi Mi Note Pro , that while it is true that it has some disadvantages ( it takes more than two years on the market, no fingerprint reader, is much larger than the Mi 5) continues to be a very competitive alternative today. The Mi Note Pro incorporates a screen of 5.7 “Full HD , a processor Snapdragon 810 , 4 GB of RAM, 3,090 mAh battery and ask yourself if you want to pay those 40-50 euros more for the other option.
Xiaomi Mi 4s, as balanced between cheap
But if you want to buy a mobile Xiaomi as balanced as possible in quality / price, then throw yourself to the Xiaomi Mi 4s . You can buy it for less than 250 euros, and has everything you would ask for a phone in this price range: five – inch screen Full HD, metal design, fingerprint reader, Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 3,260 mAh battery … it is quite, quite better in features that redmi, but neither reaches the height of My 5.
It is true that the Xiaomi Mi 4s fails to specifications My 5, but is not as “simple” as terminals redmi 3. range Call it an ideal alternative if you want to spend more than 200 euros but at the same time nor see the need to spend more than 300 it costs the flagship of the brand.
You’ll also see that some stores advertise to a much more attractive price the Xiaomi Mi 4c (you got on sale at AliExpress by 112 euros ), but keep in mind that this is an older than my 4s version, and technical specifications are behind the alternative that we recommend: no fingerprint reader, it has no slot for external memory cards and has a smaller capacity battery. In addition, Mi 4c there is also a version that has as only 16 GB of memory and 2GB of RAM.
