Top 12 Unique Xiaomi Features You Will Get Used To

A lot of people are surprised to see just how many features Xiaomi phones have. While most of the flagship phones have the best camera systems around, others are surprisingly underwhelming. Fortunately, Xiaomi has come up with a solution for these problems: Mi Share. Users can share files with their friends across Xiaomi phones, notebooks, OnePlus devices, and OPPOs. In fact, Mi Share allows users to share files between all of their devices.

While Xiaomi is widely known for its cheap, low-cost phones, the company choose not to constantly introduce new models. The company’s strategy involves keeping the same products on the market longer than most competitors, and releasing subtle changes every now and then to keep their products fresh. Despite this, consumers will still find plenty of useful features in a Xiaomi phone. Hence, this is exactly what we will be talking about today.
