mi tv stick vs mi box s 4k 1

Smart TVs are all the latest craze, especially since the global pandemic has caused everyone to spend more time at home. Every smart TV manufacturer is competing for a spot in your living room's entertainment system. Since Xiaomi has released a Mi TV Box and Mi TV Stick, people have been wondering which would be best for them.

To make things easier for you, I've gathered the information and made a comparison between the Mi Box S and Mi TV Stick so you can easily weigh out your options and choose the one that suits your needs!

So what's the difference?

mi tv stick 1

Except for form factor and resolution, there isn't much difference between the two devices. Almost all of the features seen on the Mi Box S are also found on the Mi TV Stick. The Mi TV Stick differs in that it is a pocket-sized tiny streaming stick with a rectangular design similar to the Amazon Fire Stick. The Mi TV Stick is powered by a separate AC adapter and connects straight to your TV's HDMI interface. If you prefer, you can charge it using one of your TV's USB ports, which is more convenient.

The Xiaomi Mi TV Stick is designed to be simple and discreet. The stick is small enough to be hidden behind a screen and weighs less than 30g! Small enough to easily fit in your pocket.

The Mi Box S on the other hand is a regular square-shaped device that needs a dedicated HDMI cable to connect to your TV. It’s powered by a dedicated AC power adapter.

The Xiaomi Mi Box S is subtle and stylish, if a little plain. It's a tiny matte-black box with a diameter of less than 10cm and a weight of only 147g. It isn't as compact as other streaming devices, but it won't be an eyesore when placed close or behind even the tiniest TV.

a8ff7f2d e98e f1e3 2230 4419a4c31490

The Xiaomi Mi Box S is powered by Android TV, a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. While the specs may not seem impressive in 2021, that’s enough power to handle 4K at 60fps. It also supports HDR.

This device supports Dolby Audio and DTS 2.0 if you have a compatible TV, speaker, or soundbar. The Mi Box S has a very user-friendly and self-explanatory UI. You'll feel right at home if you're used to Android products.

It supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB connections, delivering super-fast transfer speeds.

The Xiaomi Mi TV Stick, on the other hand, is a small 1080p streaming device that runs Android TV version 9.

It also has Dolby and DTS surround sound and is powered by a quad-core CPU with 1GB of RAM instead of the Mi Box S's 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. This gives it enough power to handle Full HD 1080p content at 60fps. Although, it does not support 4K playback.

The Mi Box S remote has a power button, volume controls, a dedicated Netflix and Prime button, as well as the standard home, apps, and back buttons. The Google Assistant button launches voice search, making it quick and easy to discover what you want, and there's a circular digital pad to help you navigate the interface manually if you prefer.

The remote's buttons are responsive and of a good size to press. You don't have to direct it towards the box because it runs on Bluetooth; all you have to do is be in close proximity to it.

Visually, both remotes look identical.

Like the Mi Box S, it includes Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in. This means that, in addition to using the remote, you can just speak to your TV using voice commands. Google's AI powers voice, which can pause/play media, search for movies on Netflix, videos and playlists on YouTube, and even turn off your television.

While Mi TV Stick remote has a button for invoking Google Assistant, a D-pad for navigation, back, home, and menu buttons, volume controls, and dedicated buttons for Netflix and Prime Video.

mi tv stick ui 07

Xiaomi's devices bring an array of cool features and apps up to 3000+ channels to choose from.

All of your favourite streaming services are easily accessible with the Mi TV Stick. Netflix, Prime Video, and YouTube are pre-installed, and the Play Store also has Disney+, HBO Max, Spotify, Twitch, and dozens of more apps.

The Mi Box S has an extra USB connection over the newer Mi TV stick for people who want to side-load apps or attach an external hard drive to the TV. However, you could still use the Mi TV Stick to sideload apps through Wi-Fi.

Pros and cons of Mi TV Stick

The Xiaomi TV Stick delivers on its promises. It has to cut costs somewhere to be one of the cheapest streaming devices on the market, as evidenced by the 1 GB RAM and 8 GB ROM. This causes the TV stick to become sluggish at times, but not always.

7. Ninebot Segway KickScooter ES4

download 2

In hues of grey, the ES4 has a utilitarian appearance and design. It's simple to use and was the industry standard for a reason, but it's been surpassed by other scooters.

The ES4 is well-made, long-lasting, and quick enough to keep up with traffic. With dual batteries as standard, the ES4 has roughly 35 percent greater range and goes 5 kmh faster, with a top speed of 29.5 kmh.

Its riding ergonomics are good. With simple thumb controls for the brake and throttle, the rider can comfortably control the scooter while keeping both hands on the handlebars.

The Ninebot ES4 is very easy to handle. You do not need experience or finesse to accelerate from kickstart. It goes from 0 to 24 kmh in 6.6 s.

The entertaining under-deck lights are one of the ES4's best features. A Bluetooth-enabled mobile app lets you control the lights, including colour schemes and patterns.

It's quick enough to keep up with bikers in traffic, and its shared market appearance may deter theft. However, the firm tyres prevent you from feeling any suspension dampening, making prolonged rides quite uncomfortable.

The Ninebot ES4 comes with a regenerative brake and foot brake. For normal stop and go, the regen brakes are effective and really easy to use. In an emergency stop, the rider will need to keep their rear foot free to hit the rear fender, which applies the foot brake.

The external battery architecture has both advantages and disadvantages. The charging port is located on the top of the battery, which eliminates the need to crawl on the floor to plug it in. It's difficult for a thief to remove the battery because it's fastened into the stem.

The ES4 loses some range and top speed after the external battery is removed, which is a disadvantage.

12. Glion Dolly Electric Scooter Model 215

6f0a4bd96edb5e35dc5376e55014ad82

The Glion Dolly is a durable, no-frills commuting machine with a small footprint.

Dolly wheels and an extendable carrying handle help with portability. The scooter folds up into a little package with a small footprint, is easy to transport, and can stand up on its own.

This model has a 238-watt lithium-ion battery pack.

It has a 250 watt motor - the scooter takes 9.4 seconds to reach 24 kmh.

Its ultra-portability, however, it comes at a price. The scooter will be difficult to ride on bad roads and has poor controls and performance. It isn't the most appealing scooter, either.

To slow down, the Glion Dolly depends solely on a single rear electrical brake. A twist-style control is used to activate the brake. The brake operates in a binary mode, with no ability to modulate its strength. This means that the brakes are either completely actuated or not at all.

Another thing is, this scooter has no suspension. Both the front and rear tires are solid and provide no cushioning. The ride quality on the Dolly is acceptable if you are riding on smooth roads.

The Glion Dolly has a minimal cockpit area consisting of: twist-style accelerator/brakes, power button, LCD Display and mechanical bell.

It has a passive red reflector in the back and a single low-mounted front light. Though the front light can be beneficial in an emergency when you're out after dark, it's not something you should rely on.

The Dolly can climb hills reasonably well. It can climb modest slopes, but it isn't a hill-climbing machine. Even minor hills will cause you to slow down significantly. You'll have to dismount and walk the scooter up steep slopes.

Regardless, the Glion Dolly is an excellent scooter for people who frequently use crowded public transportation. This is the basis for the scooter's design. If this meets your requirements, making a purchase is a no-brainer.

Things to Consider When Buying an Electric Scooter

Weight

When selecting an e-scooter, keep in mind the scooter's carrying weight, which affects portability, as well as the weight limits for riders. Consider your daily commute and how much weight you can lift up the stairs or keep firmly on the bus.

Range

The range of a scooter refers to how far it can travel before running out of battery power. The range of your electric scooter is determined by a number of parameters, including the motor's power, the rider's weight, the scooter's weight, the weather, the mode, and the average speed.

If you're commuting long miles on your electric scooter, you'll want to make sure that a full charge will at least get you there.

Brake

When riding an electric scooter, a good braking system is vital for staying safe and in control. Brakes are used to slow down an electric scooter. There are two types of electric scooter brakes: mechanical and electrical.

Mechanical brake systems, which include foot, drum, and disc brakes, rely on a physical mechanism to slow the scooter down.

Electronic braking systems, which include both pure electric and regenerative braking systems, rely on the motor itself to provide braking. The weakest brakes are electric and regenerative brakes. If you're going fast and need to stop quickly, these won't suffice.

Mechanical braking systems will offer much stronger braking than electronic systems. However, electronic systems benefit from not requiring any periodic adjustments or maintenance. Many scooters will have a combination of both electronic and mechanical braking systems.

Speed

Speed demon, how fast do you want to go? When answering these questions, make sure to choose a scooter that can keep up with you, but also evaluate weather conditions and safety. Most electric scooters have a top speed of roughly 32km/h, but you may not have to go that fast.

Motor power

You should choose an electric scooter with a power output of at least 250 watts. That should be plenty to get you across flat terrain and up short hills. For someone who lives in a region with a lot of hills, a scooter with dual engines or a more powerful single motor will be a better choice.

Lighting Make sure your e-scooter has adequate lighting to protect your safety. You can always buy more lights for your e-scooter, but the top scooters already have excellent lighting. After-dark riding necessitates the use of both front and rear lights.

Suspension

Suspension, like that used in cars, smooths out bumps and indentations in the road while also improving ride quality. You will feel every bump if you don't have it, especially if you have solid (airless) tyres. Consider acquiring a scooter with suspension if your commute is longer or includes tough terrain.

Tyres

Tyres come in two types: solid (airless) tires and pneumatic (air-filled) tires.

Solid tyres are inferior to pneumatic in every way except they have virtually no maintenance required. When riding on solid tyres, you’re more likely to feel every bump and even stumble over lines of paint on the road.

Pneumatic tyres give better ride quality (with or without suspension) and their supple rubber performs much better in adverse road conditions. Pneumatic tyres have the advantage of shock absorption and better handling.

Conclusion

Each electric scooter has its pros and cons so make sure to do your research! Also keep in mind of all the features stated above to ensure the right e-scooter for your personal lifestyle.

The electric scooter is already a common sight throughout the city. It enables you to move about swiftly and in the most efficient manner possible. It will be easy for you to commute throughout the city if you own one of the top electric scooter Malaysia listed above!

The popularity of Xiaomi Air Purifier products has skyrocketed. The Xiaomi Air Purifier 3H and 3C have become more popular, and they have many models. Though, they have advantages and disadvantages in comparison to one other, despite their close resemblance.

We'll be touching on the features and differences of the Mi Air Purifier 3C and 3H.

Mi Air Purifier 3C

alo1 18

The highly efficient three-layer filter core with built-in High Efficiency Filter can achieve a PM CADR of up to 320 m³/h, and, together with the 360° air duct circulation system, purifies at a high speed for long-lasting purified air.

Mi Air Purifer 3H

replace 03

This later model was to improve performance while preserving the purifier’s classic appearance.

Their engineers redesigned the entire air duct system to increase the air purifier’s PM CADR by 22%* to 380 m³/h.

Design

The Xiaomi air purifier is a minimal device, white in color except for the gray grilles on top and black display. It easily fits into almost any environment.

img 20201230 145318 scaled 1

There is almost no difference in size between the models. They have the same dimensions but the slight difference in design is that 3C model can give air from 4 sides and the filter cover is above. This design makes it convenient to replace filter.

The panels on the 3H stretch from the bottom of the air purifier to the top. The Mi Air Purifier 3C features a two-chamber design. The filter in the 3H can be changed using a door on the backside, while the top part of the 3C can be removed to gain access.

3H model uses a circular filter, the device is not open on all sides. The top of this air purifier covers a full filtration area. The holes are arranged on three sides, on all sides except the back (filter cover). The air is then filtered and exits through a grill at the top of the device.

Filter

As an air purifier Mi Air Purifier 3C relies on a HEPA filter like most Air Purifiers in general. The cylindrical HEPA filter it carries is able to remove 99.99 percent of particles up to 0.1 micron in size floating in the air such as dust, cigarette smoke, pet dander, bacteria, viruses, and odors.

To clean the air, Mi Air Purifier 3C carries the Clean Air Delivery Rate feature which can supply 320 cubic meters of clean air per hour without making any noise.

3H also uses a 3-in-1 True HEPA filter, which comes with the device. 3H uses an Integrated 360 ° cylindrical HEPA filter that effectively removes PM2.5, formaldehyde and other harmful substances.

App feature

dashboard

A WiFi connection is also included with the Mi Air Purifiers. Even the Mi Air Purifier may connect to the Google Home smart device ecosystem thanks to a WiFi connection. When its linked to Google Home, we can use voice commands to control the virtual assistant Google Assistant.

The cleanliness of the air can be seen through the App. The indicator is a coloured line with a number that shows the amount of pollutants (PM 2.5) in the air in the room. The level of cleanliness of the room is indicated by three colour lines: Green indicates excellent air quality, orange indicates light to moderate pollution, and red indicates bad air quality.

Room Size

The size of the space that an air purifier can clear is perhaps the most significant factor to consider when finding the right air purifier.

The 3C has a coverage efficiency of 40 m². The 3H model can be effective in 50 m² areas. Of course, it can be used in larger areas, but the effect will be reduced and it will clean the air around it.

Screen

alo2 104 1024x533 3

The 3C model is a screen model, but the screen does not have a touch feature. In addition, the information presented on the screen contains less data than the application, as in the 3H model. It also doesn't have a temperature or humidity sensor to track.

3C has a dash LED display.

The digital LED display shows precise real-time information for PM2.5 values, Wi-Fi status and operating mode. The tri-color light ring can be used as a high-speed reference for the indoor air quality, providing a clear picture of the quality of the air that you breathe.

dsc 0696

The Xiaomi Air Purifier 3H screen is touch-sensitive. And gives more feedback. The information on the screen is designed in a more user-friendly way. Thanks to the touch screen, you can switch between modes directly from the screen. Still, the data on the screen does not give as wide information as the data in the application.

3H has a circle LED indicator.

Simply tap the keys on the OLED display to work the purifier, and the reported info is viewable at a glance. Monitor the room air quality data, the purifier’s operational status, etc, are all displayed clearly. The tri-colored light ring quickly tells you the quality of the air in the room.

Modes

The Mi Air Purifer 3C operating mode relies on three modes, namely Auto, Sleep and Favourite.

While 3H has 4 modes: Manual, Auto, Sleep and Favourite mode.

Manual mode works by adjusting the room coverage, and in this way, the device itself adjusts the engine speed.

We'll be comparing the features they each possess and whether or not its worth the investment. We'll be mentioning the important details and how well it functions as a robot vacuum at tackling in cleaning your space.


First we have is the Dreame L10 Pro Robot.

It delivers a suction power of 4,000Pa, which is substantially stronger than most other bots in its price range. The dust tank capacity uses 570ml to store more dust on the go, and it has a decent sized water tank at 270ml capacity.

The L10 Pro Robot uses a high-precision 3D scanner and navigates through its lidar sensors which helps it to efficiently clean in straight lines whenever there’s a clear path, but the two lasers it employs do indeed help with avoiding obstacles.

This robot is great at maneuvering around obstacles. You can rest assured that your home won’t be messed up after this robot vacuum for its advanced navigation skills.

On top of that, there are four suction levels to choose from which allows it to work up to 2.5 hours or reduce the working noise to 65dBA.

When it approaches the carpet, the L10 Pro kicks into overdrive and amps up the suction to its max rating.

L10 uses the Xiaomi Home app, and the robot connects to it quickly - easy set up for cleaning schedule, cleaning zones, cleaning power, mopping water volume, and setting virtual walls. You can also store maps from different floors.

You have the option of cleaning the floor once or twice, depending on how unclean it is, for getting a more comprehensive clean.

In the app, the robot is responsive, and the robot's speech is pleasant and accurate. If you want, you may use your voice assistant to control the robot manually. LIDAR technology ensures that the robot is always aware of its charging dock's location and will swiftly return.

The motor is quiet and well-balanced, and you won't notice it after a while. The robot's wheels don't squeak, so it's easy to forget it's running!


On the other hand, we have its competitor, Roborock S6 MaxV.

roborock s6 maxv 1

The Roborock S6 MaxV can vacuum and mop, and everything you need to ensure a clean home.

It has a Qualcomm APQ8053 CPU processor with 2,500Pa of suction and an AI-based obstacle avoidance capability.

The S6 MaxV boasts an advanced obstacle avoidance feature dubbed ReactiveAI designed to prevent it from getting stuck on things. It uses two cameras and on-device artificial intelligence image processing to spot obstacles, estimate their size and location, and automatically navigate around them. The cameras work together to capture detailed images at a maximum speed of at 30fps.

The system then uses a convolutional neural network trained on thousands of real-world pictures to process images captured by the robot’s cameras.

It occupies a space of 295ml water tank. In the user manual, Roborock says you should vacuum your floors at least three times before mopping to avoid excessive buildup on the mop.

The S6 MaxV has a large 458ml dustbin is large enough to allow for several cleaning jobs before it needs emptying. Its only recommends cleaning the dustbin and main brush weekly, and the washable filter every two weeks.

Other features include app and voice control, scheduling, and zone cleaning, as you'd expect from a high-end robot vacuum.

It runs at 67dB in Balanced mode. In Max and Turbo modes, it’s louder.

In the Roborock app, you can save up to four maps if you have different levels in your home, and create virtual No-Go and No-Mop Zones, so the robot will avoid certain areas.

As the S6 MaxV works, it creates a map of your home in the Roborock app on which you can see its exact cleaning path.

There’s a Cleaning History section that shows details of each job, including a map of the robot’s route.

Through the Carpet Mode feature in the app, you can enable the setting and the robot will automatically increase its suction power when it detects carpet.

An issue that customers say is that the ReactiveAI obstacle avoidance feature was hit or miss.

Aside from these issues, the S6 MaxV does an excellent job sucking up crumbs, dirt, dust, and hair and mopping from the floors.

Comparison & Conclusion

Visually, they look identical of one another. From the semi glossy plastic chassis to how the mopping attachment fastens to the bot, the design isn’t unique enough to be distinguishable from the pack.

In terms of features, the Roborock S6 MaxV has many of the bells and whistles you expect in a high-end 2-in-1 robot vacuum and mop—with a price to match.

As for obstacle avoidance, the Dreame L10 does an overall better job at avoiding items and maneuvering than S6 MaxV. Household items like socks, cables and water bottles is something the Dreame L10 is better at avoiding while the S6 MaxV struggles in certain aspects.

Both models share similar vacuuming and mopping results even on carpets. Although technically, Dreame L10 has a higher suction power of 4000 PA than S6 MaxV 2500 PA.

Judging on the prices, Dreame L10 costs RM1,399 and S6 MaxV stands at RM2,550. For a similar outcome, your money is more worth for the L10.

S6 MaxV AI-based obstacle avoidance technology isn’t as reliable as it should be for the price.

With S6 MaxV additional camera sensors, it's inability to identify cliffs and certain spots/objects makes it questionable compared to its overall performance to the Dreame L10.

It’s interesting to know that both brands are Xiaomi partners. If Xiaomi is known for its good value price, this is also the case of its partners. But, the Dreame proposition is better when it comes to comparing the equipment for the value.

The Dreame L10 two-in-one mopping and sweeping robot that has voice control, scheduling, and object avoidance totally outworks the competition.

If you're thinking of getting a robot vacuum, choosing the Dreame L10 should be the go-to choice. Looking at a robot vacuum that does the job well is more ideal than having unnecessary features that wont be in use. Paying extra for the same results, it seems to be unreasonable.

roborock s7 vs dreame l10 pro

In this article, we'll be discussing the new Roborock S7 and the famous Dreame L10 Pro. We'll compare the features they each have and determine whether they're worth the money. We'll go over the main aspects and how well it works as a robot vacuum cleaner in cleaning your home.

Introduction of vacuum robots

p 6 528x503 1

This Roborock S7 is more than just an upgrade, with a redesigned mopping module, a new brush roll design, plus the lift feature that automatically raises the pad when it detects carpet.

The new vibrating feature introduced in the S7 adds an agitation facet absent in previous Roborock robots. Instead of just dragging a wet pad on the surface, a second motor vibrates up to 3,000 times per minute.

Regardless, most of the S7 upgrades are geared toward improving its mopping functionality.

eng pl dreame bot l10 pro smart vacuum cleaner cleaning robot 4000pa 20542 1

Many robotic vacuum cleaners have issues with obstacle avoidance where the camera sensors don't work to an extent. Dreame L10 Pro aims to solve this issue.

The most significant upgrade Dreame put in the L10 Pro are the three front laser sensors, enabling this robot to avoid objects better and reduce blind spots. Using a laser sensor provides better accuracy than a camera, and it doesn’t rely on light.

Navigation

roborock s7 hero 3vqhhy1gxyq2

Both robots utilize LIDAR and SLAM for navigation, meaning it relies heavily on a laser sensor to track its location. One advantage laser has over a camera-based sensor is its non-reliance on a light source.

You can use these robots even in pitch black conditions! Robots that rely on cameras can't do this.

These robots are quite efficient in this regard, and they are among the best at maneuvering in tight spaces.

Dreame L10 features three individual laser sensors in front of the robot that detects and evades objects.

However, a problem that may arise isn’t the laser sensor but the side brush, which exceeds the laser’s field of view.

Design

Dreame L10 has an all-black, semiglossy finish. It has a round frame and a top-mounted dust bin.

The Roborock S7 doesn’t break any new design ground - Sharing the same look with Dreame L10. Except it can be found in white or black.

Water tank

dreame l10 mop 1 1381x812 1

Dreame L10 has a rear-mounted electronic water tank - holding 270ml of water capacity.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t have any form of agitation, only dragging a damp pad on the surface. This robot is best suited for light-duty mopping.

The S7 electronic water tanks still load from the rear and get a slight bump in volume – up to 300 ml. The S7 cleans methodically, outlining the edges of a room, then working in an S-shaped pattern. It also uses a vibrating mopping pad that moves up to 3000 times per minute.

Dust bin

L10 Pro has a large dustbin - It can hold up to 570 ml of dry dirt. So you can get multiple uses out of it. Disposing of dirt is fairly easy with the front-mounted door.

S7's dustbin still loads from the top, but with a slight increase in capacity – up to 470 ml.

Both model uses HEPA filter that are washable!

S7 offers an additional option for auto-emptying so that's up to you if you want to purchase the feature.

Power & Noise level

Dreame L10 has 4000 Pascals of suction and a noise level of 65dB. On the other hand, S7 has 2500 Pascals of suction and noise level of 69.8 dB which means its on the noisier side.

You’ll even be able to tackle deep pile carpets that can pose a challenge to most robot vacuums. The L10 Pro’s mopping function is effective. It can clean heavily-trafficked hardwoods. That said, it’s best not to rely for any kind of heavy duty work.

It's best used for everyday cleaning.

Roborock S7 offers its new special sonic scrubbing technology and the mop layer automatically raises itself when carpet is detected.

In fact the S7 is better at mopping than it is at vacuuming in terms of its end results.

It's a known fact that most robot vacuums won't replace a standard vacuum cleaner but it still does the job.

Based on the prices, S7 stands at RM2,099 which is more expensive than Dreame L10, at RM1,399.

You get a lot in the way of features and functionality for the price of the Roborock S7, but for the Dreame L10 Pro Robot, you can get all the similar app features and end results at a cheaper price!

Overall, the Dreame Bot L10 Pro is a powerful robot. It offers some of the strongest suction force of any robot vacuum on the market. It features both a mopping and vacuuming function, allowing you to clean any floor. It contains a Lidar mapping function as well as a laser for real-time object detection that is great at avoiding objects. All of these capabilities, as well as a long-lasting battery, being able to use voice commands and navigate steep transitions are valuable.

So if you're looking for an everyday cleaning robot that does a great job at navigating, vacuuming and cleaning, Dreame L10 Pro is for you!

You can watch 4K video as well, but even if you're watching on a 4K TV, streaming will only go up to full-HD. Naturally, a 32-inch or 43-inch full-HD television is recommended for use with the Mi TV Stick.

There's Google Assistant, and the remote has a microphone for voice requests. You may use it for almost anything that Google Assistant can do, such as retrieving content and information, setting alarms and timers, controlling smart devices in your home, and so on.

The UI can’t get any cleaner, and a simple experience is always good!

The Mi TV Stick is simple to set up; simply plug it in, follow the on-screen instructions to connect it to your Wi-Fi, and sign in to your Google account. After that, you may start streaming by downloading apps and games.

Pick up the Mi TV Stick only if you have a firm budget and don't see yourself upgrading to a 4K TV any time soon.

Price: ~RM147
