Xiaomi Mi TV Stick, the new adversary of the Amazon Fire TV Stick

In recent years Xiaomi has succeeded greatly with its Xiaomi Mi TV Box S, probably the best Android TV Box on the market in terms of value for money. Now Xiaomi returns to the fray with a device very similar to Amazon’s Fire TV Stick, both in design and in functionality and price. Are you really up to the task?

Today the Amazon Stick has become an interesting alternative for those who do not have a smart TV. It takes up less space than an Android TV Box, and it also has a notable advantage over other smart products such as the Chromecast, and that device includes a remote control.

Xiaomi Mi TV Stick, a small and discreet Android TV player

Xiaomi has shown that it knows how to do things well, so why not launch a similar product to compete with Amazon? After all, one of the main complaints about the Fire TV is that it has a lot of advertising in its operating system related to Prime and the rest of the Amazon ecosystem apps. If we have a clean interface with Android TV that performs well, things can look interesting.

Design

At the design level, we find a device in the form of a pendrive with an HDMI port to connect to the television and a micro USB port for power. It is a small, completely portable and sober accessory, perfect to have it in the living room without taking up space or attracting attention. It has dimensions of 92.4 x 30.2 x 15.2mm and a weight of just 28.5 grams.

Along with the stick is also included a remote control with the classic navigation controls, as well as a button to activate the Google Assistant and search by voice, a specific button to Netflix and another button to enter directly into Prime Video.

Power and performance

When it comes to “gutting the patient”, at the hardware level we find a Quad-Core Cortex A53 processor together with a Mali 450 GPU, all accompanied by 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage to install applications. The operating system is Android TV 9 with Google Chromecast integrated.

At the power level we can say that it performs a tad below the Amazon player. It is true that during the first months after the launch of the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick there were complaints from the community due to its slowness, although today Xiaomi has already solved it through a long-awaited firmware update.

In essence what we have is a device that brings Android TV to the television, the best interface and navigation experience that we can have with this type of device. After having tried a lot of Chinese TV Boxes of all kinds, I can assure you that having a player with Android TV is practically essential. Above all, if we take into account that in this case it is a device that barely reaches 30 euros.

By having Chromecast integrated it also has other advantages, and that is that we can send any content from the mobile to play it on the big screen of the TV, and at the same time continue to use the mobile normally. It is not something you are going to do every day, but in certain situations it can be really useful.

Audio and video

The Mi TV Stick has an output resolution FullHD 1080p up to 60fps. Supports H.265, H.264, VC-1 and VP9-10 video decoding. As for the audio, it has Dolby and DTS sound.

Finally, if we focus on the connectivity of the device, we see that it has Dual band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz / 5GHz) and AC Wi-Fi. Perfect for taking advantage of the bandwidth required by streaming applications.

Price and availability

The Xiaomi Mi TV Stick player is priced at 45 euros, although we can currently get it with a 30% discount in AliExpress Plaza, for 31.33 euros with shipping from UK.

Without a doubt, the value for money of the Xiaomi TV Stick is one of its most outstanding points, and a whole device to consider if you are looking for a small and transportable TV Box that departs a bit from the Amazon product.
