Xiaomi at its Smart Living 2020 event in Bangalore has launched its first water purifier in India. It’s not just a water purifier, it’s a smart water purifier. Dubbed as Mi Smart Water Purifier, this product from Xiaomi claims to offer better purification and more convenience than any other purifiers in the market. 

Mi Smart Water Purifier – Features

With its pent purification, five steps purifications, Xiaomi claims it will purify water at your home, unlike any other product. The five-stage purification includes various methods. Starting with PP+ activated carbon filtration, it intercepts large and visible particles along with residual chlorine, colour, and odour.

The next step involves the RO filter, where the heavy metals, scales, and organic matter is filtered out with a precision of 0.0001 microns. Further, the PAC filter in the fourth stage claims to absorb the remaining odour, and organic substances. It will effectively improve the taste of the water. 

Mi Smart Water Purifier

The final stage involves filtration by in-tank UV light, where the harmful bacterias and viruses are killed will 99.9% efficiency. Xiaomi has brought a unique proposition to the table, as it allows real-time monitoring of the TDS levels, plus filter life monitoring as well. The connectivity via Mi Smart Home app makes that happen. 

Xiaomi is calling its Mi Smart Water Purifier as the country’s first smart water purifier with Do-it-Yourself replacement. The replacement steps are made so simple that the user can change the filters under 30 seconds. Thus, it doesn’t make user bounded by any annual maintenance contracts, which is the add on cost apart from the filter replacement cost.  

Mi Smart Water Purifier Price in India

The Mi Smart Water Purifier will be retailing in India at Rs 11,999. The brand hasn’t shared the cost of filter replacements yet. The first sale starts on September 9, 12 noon at Mi.com, Flipkart and Mi Home.

The one fact that no one can refute is that the Mi Band 3 is one of the most popular fitness trackers out there. In fact, according to IDC, Xiaomi is in the second spot – just below Apple – when it comes to overall shipments in the wearable space. It is a pity that I never managed to use a Mi Band 3. However, I have rectified that situation by using the recently launched Mi Band 4. 

And, after my time with the Mi Band 4 I am convinced that it is the best budget fitness tracker you can buy. Let me tell you why. 

Mi Band 4: design, comfort, display

As far as the design is concerned, the Mi Band 4 doesn’t try anything different. You get the same vertically-aligned band with a detachable silicone strap. The tracker module doesn’t sit flush with the band and juts out. While it looks odd, it is this distinct design aesthetic that sets it apart from the competition and stands out. Quite literally. 

There is one tiny design change from the Mi Band 3, though. The lone button below the display for going one step back is now flush with the glass panel. There is no indent anymore. Honestly, I prefer this design. On the rear, you get the two-pin Pogo pin connector for the charging cradle. I still find it annoying that you have to take the module out of the strap to charge it. Apart from the two-pin connector, there’s also the blinking heart rate sensor. 

As for the comfort, I found the thermoplastic polyurethane strap to be very soft on the wrist. Also, I like the pin-and-tuck mechanism of the strap. No complaints there. As a matter of fact, if you don’t like this system you can get a replacement for a regular watch strap as well. By the way, the Mi Band ecosystem has evolved to such an extent that finding a different coloured wristband or a metal one shouldn’t be difficult. In fact, there were quite a few already available on Amazon India even before launch. Moreover, the Mi Band 4 weights only 22.1gm and there were times when I forgot they were even on my hand. 

Coming to the 0.96-inch AMOLED display on the Mi Band 4 with 2.5D curved glass; it is crisp, bright, and colourful. This is the biggest change from the previous edition Mi Band. And, I am sure that Mi Band 3 users are going to lust after the AMOLED display now. 

And, why shouldn’t they? The 120×240 resolution panel can go up to 400 nits of brightness. You have the option of choosing from the 50 odd watch faces in the Mi Fit app. That’s not it, you can have a custom watch face as well. That said, the touch sensitivity is not the best out there. It is good enough in most scenarios but once in a while, you will face a situation where your touch hasn’t registered. 

Mi Band 4: fitness features

I know you have been waiting for me to answer this question. How is the step tracking? Cheap fitness trackers drop the ball on that aspect is the general consensus. So, I decided to the testing manually. I walked and counted 500 steps, and then lined it up against the Mi Band 4’s data. You’d be surprised to know that the difference in step count was not much. The Mi Band 4 calculated around 504 steps. Great job, Xiaomi. That said, the problem is the sensitivity in step tracking. Sometimes the Mi Band 4 also counts step when you are just moving your hands. And, that’s where brands like FitBit and Garmin are better. 

Apart from this, you get alerts if you’ve been sitting idle. And, of course, there are workouts that you can start directly from the Mi Band 4 itself. While you can track your regular Treadmill, Walking, Running, and Cycling, you can also track swimming now. Swim tracking on the Mi Band 4 allows you to set the size of the pool and even track the type of stroke using the Mi Band 4. Yup, the Mi Band 4 has a 5ATM rating which means that it is water-resistant up to 50 meters in depth for 10 minutes. I didn’t get a chance to test it out but having this feature alone is a major advantage if you ask me. 

There’s an always-on heart-rate tracker that checks your heart-rate at pre-determined intervals. The lowest interval you can set is 1-min. This tracker is then used by the Mi Band 4 to also track your sleep cycle. Sleep tracking works automatically in the night when you wear it and go to bed. But, it seems to work only in the night and not if you take an afternoon nap. Sleep tracking works extremely well and it gives you a detailed breakdown of the levels of sleep. Not just that, it gives you a data analysis of what you should be doing to sleep better. Take a look at one of my charts below for reference. Also, wearing the band to sleep is a no-frills affair considering the light weight. 

The Mi Fit app is not too bad. It works well and the UI looks decent too. But it is no FitBit app, that I have to tell you. The social aspect is not done too well. And, the data visualisation could’ve been more interesting. If like Google Fit (I don’t), you can also move your Mi Fit data to Google’s app. 

Overall, the Mi Band 4 gets an A from me for fitness tracking. And, if you bring the price into the equation, then the Mi Band 4’s fitness tracking features are definitely an A++. 

Mi Band 4: smartwatch features and battery life

The Mi Band 4 is not just a fitness tracker. It can also send you notifications from your apps of choice. However, these notifications are not actionable. In fact, you cannot even open them on your phone from the app. That said, you can add custom vibrations for app alerts if it is any consolation. Apart from cancelling the calls, you can also mute it. This is something most fitness bands cannot do.  

A new feature — in lab testing phase — is that you can set a lock for your Mi Band 4. This 4 number lock (only numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 are available for variations now) triggers when you take the band out of your hand. It works really well. You can also set vibrating alarms for what it is worth. 

Coming to the performance of the upgraded 135mAh battery inside the Mi Band 4, it is pretty good. I took it out of the box and it was at 40%. It lasted me 3 days and 15 hours with heart rate tracking at 1-minute intervals, full brightness, notifications on, and step tracking. Extrapolating this battery date, you can easily expect close to 7 days of battery life from the tracker. This is not quite the 20 days as promised by Xiaomi but you can expect 20 days with limited usage. Charging the battery from 0 to 100% takes 1 hour and 46 mins. 

Should you buy the Mi Band 4?

For its asking price, the Mi Band 4 is an easy recommendation. For its sticker price, the Mi Band 4 doesn’t need to do all the things that it does. Despite that, Xiaomi has really squeezed out every penny’s worth from the Band 4. Tell me which fitness tracker gives you music control and one that works with any third-party app? 

The closest competitor is the Honor Band 5. While Honor’s fitness tracker looks and feels more attractive, the Mi Band 4 has more finesse to its approach at capturing and showcasing activity tracking data. Everything else, including the Samsung Galaxy Fit, Fit E, Fitbit Inspire HR, and more feel expensive in comparison. Now, I like some of Amazefit’s watches. However, I haven’t used them enough to know how they fare. But the fact that they look like smartwatches gives them a leg up for one. 

Also read: Fitbit Inspire HR review: I was inspired enough to workout everyday

All in all, I really think that if you are considering a fitness tracker just pick up the Mi Band 4. In fact, calling it a mere fitness tracker would be doing it an injustice. The Mi Band 4 is definitely more than just that.

Twenty-eight days from now Google has scheduled its annual hardware event where it announces the much-awaited Pixel 4 and other devices. The Mountain View-giant has shared a media invite stating the date and place of the event. The Pixel event is scheduled on October 15, it will be happening in New York City. 

We all await for the Pixel phones eagerly! But unfortunately, with the current pace of leaks, there remains not much to be revealed. It happened with Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Now it has been happening with the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL. There has been a plethora of leaks and rumours we are seeing for a while now. 

While the CAD renders and live image leaks gave us enough, a recent hands-on video of Pixel 4 XL popped-up online. It showcases almost everything one can share about a smartphone. And that information is out there a month ahead of the actual release date.

Interestingly, this was the first time that Google teased about its upcoming hardware, months ahead of the launch. Teased with a #Pixel4, Google showed us the back of the phone. This was in early June when the purported images of the Square rear camera setup were being rumoured. Google went ahead and instantly confirmed that rumour is true. 

What do we know about the Google Pixel 4/ 4 XL features? 

The upcoming Pixel 4 XL is all set to get rid of that big ugly notch. And it is all set to offer that buttery smooth 90Hz display. The settings app in the leaked hands-on video revealed a feature called “Smooth Display”. This feature is said to dynamically switch, refresh rates between, 60Hz and 90Hz. There is believed to be a new “Screen Attention” and “Ambient EQ” feature. 

Talking about the specifications of Pixel 4 XL, a CPU Z listing revealed some information. It could be packing a 6.23-inch display with 3040 x 1440 pixel resolution display. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor, accompanied by a 6GB of RAM. 

The rear camera setup could have the combination of 12.2MP (Sony IMX363) sensor, along with 16MP telephoto lens (Sony IMX481). The front camera is said to be a 20MP Sony IMX520 sensor. The Pixel 4 is supposed to come with a 5.7-inch full-HD+ OLED display with support for 90Hz refresh rate as well. 

A month to go, after which we will learn whether all this information is true or not. Until then, keep coming back to Mr. Phone for more updates on this and other interesting topics.

realme is really going hard at the audio products category with its own offerings. After the realme Buds 2, which I reviewed recently, the company has now introduced a pair of wireless earphones. These earphones are very well-priced too. Now, you guys have been asking me for the best pair of wireless earphones under Rs 2000 for a while now. And therefore, this was the right opportunity for me to pit the realme Buds Wireless against the Mi Neckband Bluetooth earphones 

So, today I am going to be comparing these two across six key parameters. In fact, this detailed comparison can also serve as the full review for both these earphones. Killing two rabbits with one stone. 

Design, fit and comfort

Starting with the design, while these are both neckband-style earphones, there are some differences. For example, the Mi earphones come with chunkier neckband called the Micro-Arc design. In comparison, the realme Buds come with a thinner band that wraps around your neck. The advantage of a thicker band is that it helps secure the fit in place and there is not much movement around your neck. The same cannot be said about the realme Buds Wireless. It does keep moving around.

Having said that, I still prefer the realme’s fit to the Mi Neckband’s primarily because it is lighter and the wires don’t stretch out in an arc as they do on the Mi earphones. This is irritating because you can constantly feel that the wires are closer to your face. Also, if you sweat a lot, the Mi Neckband’s thicker frame adds to the discomfort. In fact, even the realme’s housings are more comfortable inside with the ears thanks to the wingtips. While they don’t fit me perfectly, the wingtips help secure the earphones in place. 

Anyhoo, coming back to the actual design. Both the earphones re predominately Black in colour, but the Mi Neckbands have a slightly greyish neckband that looks okay. But, it is the realme’s yellow accents that add a dash of character. I also like the addition of the realme logo on the control pad and the outer side of the housings. Moreover, the matte finish across the design – including the earphone housings – are very nicely done. I definitely prefer the realme Buds Wireless’ design over the Mi Neckband’s. 

Interestingly, both the earphones come with a magnetic lock for the housings but only the Realme Buds can play/pause music. That comes in pretty handy in my opinion. As for the controls, I find the Realme Buds easier to control. 

Overall, design-wise the Realme Buds are clearly my favourite pair and could easily be yours as well when you check the two earphones side-by-side. 

Sweatproof/waterproofing

This is where the realme Buds Wireless has an immediate advantage. These are IPX4 certified and can withstand splashes of water. Therefore, I am guessing sweat shouldn’t be much of an issue either. So, if you are someone who loves to exercise with neckband-style earphones on, the realme Buds Wireless is a better option compared to the Mi Neckband Bluetooth earphones. Also because the realme Buds Wireless has those wingtips that I mentioned before. 

Connectivity and Bluetooth range

Both the earphones come with Bluetooth 5.0 support. However, both cannot connect to two devices at once. This is a big bummer. As for the Bluetooth connectivity range, both the earphones promise up to 10 meters of a strong connection. Now, I did a rudimentary range test and noticed that the realme Buds Wireless managed to hold on to connection for the furthest distance compared to the Mi Neckband. 

Okay, now for the one test that matters the most for most Indian users: the gaming audio lag test. I fired up PUBG and noticed a definite audio lag in the realme Buds Wireless. Heck, the audio lag is even more pronounced on the Mi Neckband. So yeah, you are out of luck if you wanted to pick one of these up for PUBG gaming. 

Sound signature and microphone quality

So, here we are; the most important part of this comparison review where we discuss the sound signature of the earphones. The realme Buds Wireless totally took me by surprise. These earphones have an exciting sound signature that is lively and fun to listen to. In comparison, the Mi Neckband goes for a decidedly warm sound with a bloated bass. The treble extension is way better on the realme Buds wireless and that is evident from a song Chasing Marrakech by ZHU. Moreover, the instrument separation and sound-staging are better too. 

Undoubtedly, the sound signature of the realme Buds Wireless is far more appealing compared to the bloated low-end sound of the Mi Neckband Wireless. I would have liked it if the realme Buds Wireless’ soundscape was a bit cleaner. But from the tonality to the dynamics, the Buds Wireless truly sound a couple of notches better than the Mi Neckband Wireless. I really want to commend the sound engineers over at realme for creating such a musical and exciting sound signature with punchy, tight bass. The bass bleed on the Mi Neckband Wireless just ruined the whole experience for me. 

I mean, the realme Buds Wireless is not perfect or anything. In fact, it has slightly subdued mids that could be off-putting for folks that listen to a lot of vocal-heavy tracks. But, in all honesty, for its asking price, the realme Buds Wireless is punching above its weight. 

Also read: 1MORE Dual Driver BT ANC review: these well-priced noise cancelling IEMs also sound good

While the sound quality is important, the microphone quality is equally vital for a lot of users. And, both the earphones don’t disappoint in calls. What I noticed is that Xiaomi has better noise cancellation but that affects the voice clarity. This is not a problem with the Realme Buds Wireless. It sounds slightly clearer. You take your pick: better noise cancellation or a clearer sound. 

Battery life

The Mi Neckband has a larger 120mAh battery compared to the 110mAh unit inside the realme Buds Wireless. As per my testing, I could charge the realme Buds Wireless from 0 to 100 in under 1 hour and 30mins, which is as promised by the brand. The Mi Neckband takes longer to charge. It took me around 2 hours and 10 mins. Despite the slightly larger battery, the Mi Neckband chargers at a slower pace. 

As for the battery life, the realme Buds Wireless last longer for sure. I got around 11 hours and 40 minutes of playback on the realme Buds whereas I got around 8 hours with the Mi Neckband. So yeah, even the battery performance is better on the realme Buds Wireless. 

Value for money

Both the earphones are under Rs 2,000, but I feel that the realme Buds Wireless provide more value thanks mainly to the fact that it has a far more refined sound signature. Moreover, the realme Buds Wireless also offers IPX4 certification. I mean, I know that the Mi Neckband earphones are cheaper now with the 20% discount but still the realme Buds Wireless are a better VFM even at Rs 1,799. 

Which one should you buy?

This time it is an easy question. I’d strongly suggest that you pick up the realme Buds Wireless over the Mi Neckband Bluetooth earphones. Almost everything about the realme Buds Wireless is better. So, what do you guys think? Are you going to cop the realme Buds Wireless when it goes on sale? Do let me know in the comments section below.

Vivo Nex 3 5G Specifications

Sporting a 6.89-inch OLED screen, which is curved in nature, offers 2256 x 1080 pixel resolution. The side bezels are virtually non-existent, as per Vivo. One of the highest complaints received for the previous model was the increased accidental palm touches.

Running on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, this phone is said to be offering high performance. The camera setup packs triple rear sensors in a circular manner. It is headlined by a 64MP sensor. There is a 4500mAh capacity battery with a 44W fast charging support. 

Vivo Nex 3 5G - Camera

As far as the connectivity is concerned, it offers a range of them. Starting with audio experience, there is a DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) support. It’s an Ak4377 Hi-Fi Audio DAC. The highlight of the connectivity section feature is the 5G Ready status. While its name suggests that already, it indeed is a brilliant feature to get excited for. 

Talking about the camera system, it has a 64MP Samsung sensor with f/1.7 aperture size. It is used to shoot pixel-binned 16MP shots or 64MP images. There are two sensors; both 13MP resolution. Where one sensor doubles up as a wide-angle lens and a macro lens for close shots up to 1.4cm. The Vivo Nex 5G’s camera is said to offer up to 20X zoom using data combined from the telephoto lens and 64MP sensor. 

Vivo Nex 3 5G Price

The Vivo Nex 3 4G model will go for sale at 4998 Yuan, which roughly translates to Rs 50,000. Whereas the 5G model will go for 5698 Yuan, i.e. Rs 58,000 approximately. If that’s the pricing, it may put it out as a great competitor against phones like Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

Flipkart, the giant e-retailer is all set to launch a Motorola-branded TV in India. You may not be ready for a Motorola TV yet, but you would probably be getting one on September 16, alongside the launched of Motorola’s new E series smartphone. 

Motorola-branded TV is coming!

At the moment there’s not much know about this TV, and it seems like a closely traded secret that we have been hearing about this for the first time. No rumours, no leaks of sort came in for the supposed Motorola branded Television.

But what we know so far is that it is all set to come with a Soundbar attached to it. Unlike other TVs, which offers basic speakers or a set of slightly powerful tweeters with base. Whereas offering a sounder attached to your TV is a different ballgame, altogether, unheard before.  

These days with the increase in popularity of the Smart TVs, many non-TV players have jumped to bandwagon or jumping. The most recent will be the OnePlus TV, which is said to arrive later this month. Further, Xiaomi is all set to launch a range of Smart Home appliances on September 17th. Where we expect the brand to introduce a new Smart TV as well. 

Also read: OnePlus TV will come built-in with a Chromecast and all Google services

With increased demand, it is only fitting for Flipkart to make the perfect use of the Motorola branding to introduce a new range of TVs. Well, we don’t know if it will be a range, or just one single model to start. You’d have to wait for further details on this one.
