When it comes to select any product for buying, there are many aspects we need to look at, its features, the durability, and so on. MI Smart Band4 features fit into my buying standards as it is one of the best smartwatches which I found when I was looking to buy a smartwatch for myself. This smartwatch is really a cool thing to have with lots of great features, and a multipurpose device.
Although, there are some drawbacks which can be easily mitigated by a few upgrades, and are not such huge issues. In this article, I am going to describe its good and bad aspects, rather call it the pros and cons of the product, in short, give a review of this product.
I will talk about the good aspect first, so the most attractive feature is its AMOLED display which is nice for outdoors as the display is bright, added with custom wallpapers which is upgraded feature from the previous version, gives a really awesome look to menus and UI. The display is sharper and brighter with tempered glass top, with screen guards to cover and protect its broader face.
There are more control features added to its music functionality like volume, track, play/pause that really gives you an amazing experience.
The 20 days battery life(135 mAH) and more if you let some of its functionality turned off is the best thing to have on any digital device.
This smartwatch is also 50m waterproof as its previous version which really assures its durability and ruggedness.
It is more instantly charged than its previous version. Therefore fast charging is another great feature.
There is also weather display for the current location with name, changes as one move.
Other MI Smart Band4 features also include sleep monitor, messages and call notifications, turn on display with lifting your hand, the striking feature is the find my device feature which is really a handy one. Other brands don’t have as many features as MI App.
Now let’s talk about the bad aspects. As its previous version the weather display should be on the home screen, I think the theme is also a little disappointment on such a beautiful screen, UI could be that area where one can expect improvements with upgrades in coming days.
There is also inaccuracy when it comes to counting steps which really needs improvement.
There should be more control over managing brightness for indoors and outdoors, maybe adding a switch could have really solved the issue.
I would suggest just go for it, if you are really looking for a great multipurpose smartwatch to buy, this product is highly recommended from me and I personally have experienced it after buying it, really MI Smart band4 features fits into all my buying standards which I was looking in a multipurpose smartwatch. A few drawbacks here are not a big issue and can be made better by a few up-gradation.
