This is My Xiaomi Ecosystem Experience!

Jullian Robin Sibi 13

August 16 of this year marks the 10th anniversary of Xiaomi as a company. Over the years, I bought a few gadgets made by the company. In this post, I’m sharing my experiences and memories with those gadgets. Here they are!

My First Xiaomi Device: the Mi Power Bank!

Yep! My first device from Xiaomi is a power bank! I was looking for one with high battery capacity and can charge more than one device at a time. It’s a good thing that the Mi Power Bank came in a 16000 mAh capacity! With it, I’ve been using it to charge various devices in the span of at least 3 years! That includes a lot of phones, tablets, and even other power banks!

Yes, it takes me a good night sleep to charge this power bank to 100%. But that trade-off is all worth it since it can charge two devices at once! I don’t have to worry about running out of juice in the power bank due to its high capacity.

A Handy Little Router with the Mi Router 3C!

I only got to use this while I was in Japan, but this was really useful for me. The Mi Router 3C is an affordable way to get better Wi-Fi around your house. Despite it only having 802.11n Wi-Fi, it only costs less than P1,000 when I bought it. That alone made the purchase so worth it. You can change its settings through the web browser or through the Mi Wi-Fi app.

Who Knew a Selfie Stick and a Tripod Can Be One Thing?

This is probably the most used gadget in my arsenal right now. The Mi Selfie Stick Tripod sees a selfie stick and a tripod in one product! I feel that this has served me so well. I can take more stable photos and videos for the blog and various other things.

Probably the best feature of this device is the included Bluetooth shutter remote. This is super convenient for me when doing videos whether handheld or using the tripod.

My First Xiaomi Phone: Redmi Note 9

Yes, it took me until this year to get my first Xiaomi smartphone. I just felt that it wouldn’t be right to analyze the company as a whole without trying out one of its smartphones. The Redmi Note 9 is one of the latest in a line of its popular Redmi Note line.

I already did my first impressions and so far, its endurance really impressed me a lot. This phone has yet to die on me! I’m also happy that I can get a 1080p display even at a sub-P10K smartphone.

Phone cameras have come a long way since the Redmi brand was just an entry-level product line. (It still feels like it today.)

I have more thoughts on this phone, but that will have to wait until the full review coming soon!

At any rate, I really appreciate that Xiaomi is bringing many technologies to a more affordable price. It makes technology accessible to more and more people and that’s just awesome to see.

    I really want to have Xiaomi Powerbank because it has 16000 mah and it doesn’t easily got a dead bat. Most of my friends have that and it is very useful in our travels and camping whenever our devices runs out of battery.

  6. I want to give Xiaomi a try after reading your review, Jul. One of the reasons why I don’t try other brands just that is the lack of reliable reviews from people close to me or at least from people I know. But, thank you for this! I’m planning to buy a new phone for business use and I’m defo considering Xiaomi now. 🙂

  7. Huwowww full review sa Xiaomi devices ohh 😀 😀 Anyways, so good that Xiaomi has different devices that make our lives easier, especially in the tech side kay all people karun kay need dyud ang technologies para sa ilang work and content. The realme phone looks elegant ha.. beke nemen Xiaomi .. 😀 Nice review blog, julls! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  8. I’m also a fan of Xiaomi, in general. I love how they try to replicate Apple in more ways than one but they were also able to stick to their brand. Congrats on their 10th anniversary! 🙂

    Any giveaway? LOLjk

    Omg I think I need to get myself that kind of powerbank too! Haha haven’t had a good power bank since then. Dali ra kaayo maguba. I heard from many too that Xiao Mi’s phones are good. Might consider them puhon puhon 🤎

  10. Pie Pie

    I am still intrigued sa Redmi NOte 9 because this was included man gud sa top 10 nga best mobile photography phone pag summer mao nga i am curious. I can’t wait for it’s full review!

  11. I can still remember the time when the brand arrived here and became popular in the country (or in Cebu), getting a Xiaomi power bank would leverage you to become “one of those techie guys”. It’s like it’s a status simple when you own a Xiaomi power bank because it was then the fad and the trend.

    My first Xiaomi smartphone was a Xiaomi Redmi 1S with the black back panel. And believe it or not, I bought all the color variants available. Those were the days.

    Thanks for this review. this is very helpful especially with the power bank and tripod/selfie stick. will definitely look into purchasing it. any recommendation where to buy it?

    • You can buy it in either Xiaomi’s store in SM City Cebu or in Ayala Malls Central Bloc! (not sure if there’s stock there and I’m really sure my powerbank is phased out already)
