It goes without saying that smartphones are a critical and useful part of our day-to-day routine. Smartphones have become such an integral part of us that it would be difficult to imagine living without them.
Think about it for a second, what other technology offers quick connections, unlimited entertainment and a horde of productive tools, all at the same time? It would not be wrong to say that smartphones are now as important to us as oxygen is to life.
With the advent of modern technology and assembly mechanisms, a large number of smartphone manufacturers have sprung up all over the globe. Xiaomi is one such brand that has become the talk of the town these days.
Since its inception in 2010, the brand has already established itself as one of the leaders among the long list of manufacturers. With so many different brands to choose from, you may still be wondering why you should go for Xiaomi.
So, we’ll try to give you different reasons, backed by facts, to tell you how going for Xiaomi might be one of the best decisions you will ever make.
Premium Hardware Made To Last
Although Xiaomi is a relatively new player in the market, there’s no reason to believe that it’s not a reliable one. Xiaomi smartphones are as good as they come. The materials used in their phone manufacturing process are quality-tested and reliable.
From full metal body to glass body, Xiaomi has truly perfected the art of impressive smartphone builds. This goes hand in hand with their inner hardware quality, which has been proven to be one of the best out there.
Xiaomi’s naming as one of Russia’s best brands is visual proof of the company’s dedication to quality products. The company also continues to maintain its position on the home turf by winning China’s 2018 quality technology awards.
Like other major smartphone players, such as Apple and Samsung, Xiaomi has also tested the waters with its own custom skin, the MIUI.
Needless to say, the ROM skin is pretty sleek and quite advanced for its time. Xiaomi exclusive features are the icing on the cake, such as the navigation gestures, and the volume slider.
This skin developed by Xiaomi has a ton of features that stock Android and other manufacturer skins lack. Xiaomi has taken the moral ground here by allowing its skin to be downloaded by other phones as well.
So, if you like Xiaomi phone’s layout or would just like to test the skin out on your older phone, all you have to do is simply downloading and installing the files from the official Xiaomi MIUI website.
Capture Your World
With the advancement in technology, smartphones are on the verge of replacing cameras. With their cutting edge technology and enticing software controls, they have become the top choice for day-to-day camera users.
If there is one thing more than the MIUI that Xiaomi phones are known for, it’s their cutting-edge camera technology. Even the budget Xiaomi phones sport impressive camera modules and technology.
Moving on to the latest flagships, Xiaomi totally kills it hands down. For example, Redmi K20 Pro, the beast comes with a total of 3 rear cameras, bearing a 48 megapixel, an 8 megapixel, and a 13-megapixel lens respectively.
While looking at smartphone cameras, one thing must be kept in mind. The megapixels count cannot act as a standalone medium for judging a camera’s picture quality. Other features such as the lens aperture and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) should also be kept in mind.
Xiaomi easily takes the prize home in this category too, with the respective f/1.75, f/2.4, and f/2.4 lens apertures of the Redmi K20 Pro’s 3 rear cameras. The 20-megapixel front camera also takes the lead as one of the best selfie shooters available in the market.
The recently introduced bokeh effect has almost eliminated the need for traditional camera setups. Who even needs those bulky pieces of hardware anymore? Just take out your favorite Xiaomi phone and snap a photo on the go. It’s as easy as 1-2-3…
Let’s face it, nobody likes bloatware. Why smartphone manufacturers still continue to ship it with their flagships is beyond me. Who even uses those non-removable Apps anymore?
The mere presence of such unwanted apps is a security concern and is also plain annoying. You paid for your smartphone and it only makes sense to be able to do with it as you please.
These Apps not only take extra space, which can be quite crucial in this day and age but also strain the smartphone’s RAM and processor by running in the background. Now, with other manufacturers, you have to go the root route (pun intended), to remove such unwanted Apps.
But not with Xiaomi. Xiaomi phones come with only a handful of useful apps pre-installed. Even these handy Apps, such as the Browser, Notes, and Music can be disabled or uninstalled on a whim.
This is my favorite aspect of Xiaomi devices. Xiaomi is a smartphone manufacturer that respects their users’ integrity and lets them decide which Apps to uninstall and which ones to keep on their devices.
Premium Technology At Dirt Cheap Prices
The discussion has led us to the final point of this blog post, i.e. the price. Unless you haven’t been living under the rock in the past few years, chances are that you know how affordable Xiaomi devices are. Such low prices, coupled with their proven reliability, make for the perfect combination.
The company has been such a hit all over the world that its new devices are giving the established brands, a run for their money.
Now, you may be wondering how Xiaomi manages to sell its devices at such low rates, while still being so profitable.
The answer lies in the company’s old school business model. Xiaomi tries to sell its devices at prices as close to the manufacturing costs as possible.
As the manufacturing costs drop due to the increased production, the company extracts huge profits from the increasing demand. This is all connected in a very simple yet highly rewarding way.
