G2A.COM  G2A News Features Why You Should Buy a Xiaomi Smartphone and Which Ones are the Best?
It is hard to imagine life without a smartphone nowadays. These small yet powerful devices are used for a wide array of everyday activities – from browsing the web and watching movies to taking photos and making videos to playing CPU and GPU intensive games. As technology rapidly grows, it is only natural that we constantly seek for faster phones capable of doing the above-mentioned tasks – and much more – even more efficiently than before.
There is, however, one thing that prevents most of us from always getting the latest and the most incredible gadgets. Their price. But does it mean you can’t get a powerful smartphone for a relatively low price? Xiaomi proves you actually can.
Xiaomi is a Chinese electronics company mostly known for its budget smartphones, but it is also responsible for other products like smartwatches, headphones, and even air filters and electric scooters. It is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, leading both in China and India markets, being globally overtaken by only 3 other companies as of 2019.
It is worth noting, though, that Xiaomi is not the only company that tries to make Chinese smartphones look good on the global market. There is also Huawei, Lenovo, and Oppo, just to name a few. Each company answers different customers’ needs, and Xiaomi’s selling point is high quality for low price.

Until recently the phrase „Made in China” was mainly used with reference to cheap, low-quality and often counterfeit goods. Xiaomi is one of the Chinese companies that – thanks to its affordable and high-quality Mi smartphones – may change how we perceive Chinese electronics. Cheaper smartphones can be a viable alternative if we’re tight on budget, but as Xiaomi shows, being cheaper doesn’t have to mean being worse.
In case of this company, it is definitely the opposite, as Xiaomi products are among the best on the market when it comes to quality and user experience. Depending on your needs you can focus on low, mid or high tier and choose the smartphone that stands out in its price range, like Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 or Xiaomi Pocophone F1. Either way, it seems that the company has a great smartphone in every price category for any type of customer.
