Xiaomi is the queen of the mid-range, and of that there is no doubt. And no, it does not make terminals much better than the competition, there is more to see the Moto G6 Plus, but the virtue that Xiaomi has is that reduces both the prices that paying 150 euros more for a similar terminal of another brand becomes absurd.

However, as much as we think no, half of the mid-range Xiaomi phones are not worth it, and it’s not for a bad reason, much less. Xiaomi has the enemy at home, and she has to realize it.
Half of the mid-range Xiaomi are not worth it, and it’s the other half’s fault
Xiaomi is a company that every year launches an overwhelming number of terminals, which, in many cases, are quite difficult to distinguish at the time of purchase if you have not been exhaustively looking at their specifications, which is of little benefit to users, if you think about it.
And, if there is something wrong with the company having so many terminals in the market, it is precisely the fact that it makes many of them worthless at all. Not because they are bad terminals, which are not, but due to the fact that for little more money we can have a better terminal.
More than 5.5 inches: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Prime, Xiaomi Redmi 5.
Less than 5.5 inches: Xiaomi Redmi 4X, Xiaomi Redmi 4A, Xiaomi Redmi 5A.
5.5 inches: Xiaomi Redmi S2, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Xiaomi Mi A1
More than 5.5 inches: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus,
As you can see, many terminals of the Chinese company step on each other, since, in total, we have five mid-range smartphones, all phablets. While, in the low range, we found six terminals, of them three of 5 inches, and other three of more than 5 inches. An authentic madness.
The problem is not that they are bad mobiles, but that they step on each other.
We do not know to what extent it can be profitable for Xiaomi to have so many smartphones in its catalog, since it is very possible that sales will be removed among them. Although perhaps, on the other hand, Xiaomi wants precisely to diversify its offer of smartphones.
Despite this possible intentionality, the fact is that half of Xiaomi’s smartphones are not worth it, since in many cases it is worth paying the difference in order to enjoy better hardware or more. Below is a list of all the terminals for sale of mid-range and low-end in Xiaomi Spain.
|Xiaomi Redmi 4A||99 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi 5A||109 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A||129 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi 5||129 euros or 159 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi 4X||149 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Prime||159 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi Note 4||169 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus||179 euros or 199 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi S2||179 euros|
|Xiaomi Redmi Note 5||199 euros|
|Xiaomi Mi A1||209 euros|
|Xiaomi Mi Max 2||279 euros|
As you can see in the table, in which the terminals are ordered from lowest to highest according to their price, the difference between the cost of one terminal to another, often does not even reach 20 euros, and this the only thing that creates is indecision in the user.
But we tell you from now: compare. Half of the terminals that Xiaomi has in the catalog are not worth it because precisely, for around 20 euros, you have another much better Xiaomi, and that is what kills some of its models right now. Or if not, think about it, Would you buy a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Prime when for only 20 euros you have a Redmi 5 Plus with a better processor and a higher resolution screen?
We believe that, for 20 euros, it is worthwhile to increase the budget a bit, and the truth is that Xiaomi is the clear example of this, since this difference is a jump between a low range and a middle range, making half of Xiaomi phones are not worth it. What do you think about it?
