Do you have to spend 1500 Yuan more to buy a balanced car?Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter and see how it is? Get it the cheapest here!

 

We must have to admit that the look and style of Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter have all the hallmark of Xiaomi’s product and it is beautiful and features exquisite workmanship. 

The 11-inch tire on the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter is slightly larger in diameter than the previous one, which has 10.5-inch tire. So, the radius of the tire is the same as the height of Mi 6 smartphone. In other words, personally you may think that the difference is not great, but from the actual experience point of view, this 11-inch tires will have no problem at ordinary speed or on a little bumpy road. If the Ninebot self-balancing Scooter is the reference, it can be said that the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter can easily outwit it. Also, Ninebot self-balancing Scooter cannot pass through an obstacle, whereas Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter can pass through an obstacle with some effort.

 

11-inch wheels. The added hub lights looks more beautiful

 

Chassis height from the ground is about 3/4 of the height of a Mi 6 phone

 

There is a small “trunk” at the rear rod of the scooter. You need to press the unlock button to lift the finger at the same time to open it, but do not press both at the same time. You require both the hands, and opening it with one hand is challenging.

 

The opening technique of the storage box is inconvenient

 

The storage box has space just to hold a remote or MaJia PTZ Camera and does not have space for the charger.

One of the great innovations of the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter is that it is equipped with a remote control, with which you can remotely control the Xiaomi scooter and experience autonomous walking. Meanwhile, its built-in chip that will locate your location so that it can automatically follow you. There is a recall function as well, which is very interesting.

 

Just press the pup button on the remote control, the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter automatically follow you behind the built-in positioning sensor. If it is within 20m from you, the same click on this button, the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter will come automatically to you, but there should be no obstacle between you and the balance of the car, as the Xiaomi scooter can only come on a straight path toward you, and cannot circumvent any obstacles. It’s a fun thing to do, more like a pet that follows the owner.

If you purchase Xiaomi MiJia PTZ camera, you can install the top of the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter. You to use it for time-lapse photography, panoramic shooting, track shooting and other innovative games, and have some fun.

 

Increased pedal area, with soft material and it feels good.

With the technology capital and knowledge of Ninebot and Segway, I think the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter is totally trustworthy and will give a good performance. In addition, Xiaomi Ninebot Plus Scooter also has increased battery capacity, so with this more power it’s motor life has been increased to 35km, can reach a speed of up to 18 km/h. Compared with its predecessor, which has a battery life for 22km, it is a 50% increase, which seems to be a good improvement considering the difference in the price. Also, this scooter weighs a bit more than the regular version. Even if you are a new user, it is easy to use as well, as long as you can balance yourself and overcome your inner anxiety.

 

Returning to the question of if it is worth buying the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter for 3499 Yuan compared to the regular version for 1999 Yuan? Is Mi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter better than the regular version?

Our advice is that if your everyday need is a mere short commute and riding a short distance, then the regular version is better for you. However, if you want to experience it as a big toy for playing and to have fun, or have a longer riding requirement, then Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter is the best bet. Perhaps you may have to check with your friend with a regular version, before hovering for Plus version.

  

Now let’s summarize the advantages and slight improvements of the Xiaomi Ninebot Plus self-balancing Scooter.

Advantages:

·         Beautiful appearance, good workmanship

·         Equipped with physical remote control, automatic follow, one-button recall and other interesting features

·         35km long life, motor power more

·         Excellent riding performance, excellent stability, high starting point

Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum 2 Review | An essential for the laid back

On September 19, Xiaomi MiJia’s robot technology research and development team officially released Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2. This time it was marketed under its own brand, Roborock, perhaps to strengthen the brand name and open new markets. Compared to its predecessor, the floor mop function is added, further enhancing the functionality.In this article we will take an in-depth analysis of the original Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2. Get it the cheapest here.

Design

The outer packing is made of Kraft paper. The overall design is simple. The very large prominent logo of Roborock is in the middle, and there are some simple pictorial instructions on the function of the mop on the top.

Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 and its predecessor MiRobot Vacuum Cleaner looks very similar (after all, they are made from the same manufacturer), but thanks to the upgrading of components and design, the overall size of the Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 is slightly smaller, when compared to its predecessor.

More than the change in key layout or sensor position, I believe consumers will notice that the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 do not have Mi logo, but instead has Roborock logo.

 

Roborock believes that the best solution for the current home robotic vacuum cleaner is the laser-guided path. Therefore, the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 is equipped with LDS laser range finding sensor, same as its predecessor, and can calibrate the distance information at the rate of 5 × 360 ° / sec. When laser light hits an obstacle, it forms a spot in the sensor. At the same time, the image sensor calculates the distance of the laser ranging sensor according to the pixel number of the spot, where the “eye” of the cleaning robot is located.

You can easily lift the lid, and see the dust box and the main brush cleaning tools, which can be easily removed. The modular design is convenient for maintenance and replacement.

 

When you turn over, you will see the overall structure is not different from its predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner. However, this Roborock version has made significant upgrades,  such, the maximum suction pressure is increased from 1800 to 2000 pa, obstacle detection ability increased to 2 cm, new omnidirectional pressure sensor, ability to ascend out and more. 

It is obvious that the charging option is arranged on both sides of the guide wheel to achieve better charging and reduce the area occupied. 

The main brush, buckle and other parts of the modular design, which makes it easier and convenient to maintain and replace the parts.

The new sweeping module of the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 just needs to be installed directly in the notch. It is an effortless action to install or remove the module.

The new design of the charging contacts shows that the charging seat is significantly smaller, when compared to predecessor, and occupies less space, which seems to be more practical.

App Experience

As a member of the Mi Eco-Chain enterprise, the Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 supports the use of Mi remote control. With automatic scanning or manual addition, you can pair the Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 with a Mi remote App. In a new environment, the Xiaomi vacuum cleaner will automatically scan the area and approximate map it, and provide the view area to the user, these are the same as its predecessor.

 

During the cleaning operation, with the LDS laser range sensor through the original SLAM algorithm will build an accurate and real-time map of the room and provide the cleaning routes. The results are satisfactory, and any error if so are within the acceptable range. You can carry out normal cleaning work with the Xiaomi robot vacuum cleaner without any hassle. And this update would allow the user to give voice commands to Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum 2 to which zone to clean and sweep, and also other functions were further enhanced, to meet the needs of different users.

  

Of course, similar to the use of mobile phones as a remote control, setting the cleaning mode and sweeping mode are very easy in the App. The App also does a lot more than simple settings, it also user-friendly and shows the health status of all modules, and shows that it is time to replace them.

Sweep Strength

The predecessor, Xiaomi Robot Vacuum Cleaner’s sweeping ability is impressive. So, how about this latest edition of Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2? Even with the most powerful MAX Sweep mode, the noise is not very annoying and is within the acceptable range. The cleaning is satisfactory, with fine things like hair and debris on the floor were swept away, which is little better than its predecessor. Thanks to the SLAM algorithm of Roborock, now cleaning in the corner areas are not a problem, though some special corners cannot be cleaned, which is not the problem of inadequacy or software restrictions. The device is only limited by the swept volume, 

Roborock has added mop function to Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2, which is a big step forward. There is a small water tank that can be attached to the robot just by sliding, and the mop pad is connected to the tray also through a sliding mechanism and the liquid is spread wisely. To our surprise, while mopping the water control is better, basically quickly dried (in about 10 seconds), and the SLAM algorithm’s zig-zag path does not seem to have a dead end. You should be very satisfied with the sweeping and mopping, unless you have an obsessive-compulsory disorder.

Here is the best deal you can find online

Conclusion

 

In our experience, Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 is a good step forward from its predecessor. It takes up less space, cleans well and the new mop feature is handy. Though mop function of the cleaner was originally thought as a marketing gimmick, the actual performance can be termed as an unexpected surprise and it can very well satisfy generic usage. If you are too lazy to do housework, Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner 2 is designed for you.

There are few hiccups though, we saw water seepage, it may be due to some design mechanics, and recharge takes more time. I hope Roborock can fix these glitches. In any case, it is a very satisfactory experience with Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum 2.

Compact and user-friendly | Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth Headset Review

Foreword

I have always wanted to have a good quality Bluetooth headset that can let me get away from the boring time, and I have my own requirements to the headset such as cost-effective, small and user-friendly, battery life long, loud enough and best to single-ear. Before Xiaomi mi bluetooth headset I have used several Bluetooth headsets before, but none of them meet my standard, there are either weak performance on battery life, or sound is weak especially in noisy environment, I have hardly heard any sound from it. 

Compared to several products, Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth headset youth edition kit is the best fit for my requirements in terms of small size, single-ear, and most importantly it comes with charging base. It only cost me 99 yuan to buy this headset, the following I will show you how my experience in using this.  Get it the cheapest here!

Unboxing experience

  

White packaging box with transparent front plastic cover

Back of the box is information relate to Xiaomi Mi bluetooth headset 

Unboxed it and this is where I find the charging base

Family portraits: One single-ear headset, one charging base, one USB charging cable, 3 set of silicone earcap and one manual.

One of the disadvantages is charger not included, although I have few charger at home somehow I don’t like to mix-use the charger in different products, just feel this is not good for the device.


Easy carry charging base, you can charge the Xiaomi Mi bluetooth headset wherever you are, you do not need to worry about the durability. Charging base comes with 320am  built-in battery, can fully charge the Xiaomi bluetooth headset three times, so you can enjoy the fun of music whole day without worry about the battery life when you go out.


Anti-slipped material at the bottom of charging base with Mi LOGO


This compact and long cylinder shape Mi bluetooth headset has a simple design, no unnecessary component. There is an indicator at the bottom.

The external coating of the Xiaomi mi bluetooth headset is said to have used Japan’s Musashi paint, which can effectively prevent abrasion and oil stains, if it gets dirty you just need to gently wipe it away. The Mi bluetooth headset is skin-friendly too, and feeling good when holding it in hand. Some netizen has done an evaluation of anti-greasy effect, even oily pen stains can easily rub off, it is great.

  

Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth headset uses a detachable ear cap design, this unique ear cap made by medical grade silicone according to the 2000 Asian cochlear sampling design, and feel soft and comfortable when wearing it. It is awful smell free, and there are two alternate ear caps in different size for your choice.

 

The left side of the Mi bluetooth headset is the volume keys, you can adjust the volume here.


I think it is quite rational to put the charging port at the bottom of the headset, this kind of design does not affect the appearance and make it a little waterproof. 


The top is the power switch and answering buttons, it is very convenient for you to answer the call without press by mistake.

Follow the good tradition of Miui system, the Mi bluetooth headset is user-friendly, you will not get confused. The manual is also written intuitively, even stupid people can learn it very fast!

 

Remove the silicone ear cap, you can see the magnetized moving coil speaker, and the unique product ID and CMIIT ID printed at the edge.

The MIIT ID is referred to the radio transmitter model approval code. According to “Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on the Management of Radio Operation” the production and import of radio transmitting equipment need to carry out type approval on its emission characteristics and issue the “radio transmission equipment type approval certificate” and model approval code. The ex-factory equipment shall be marked with the model number Approval code.

After Pop science, we can see that Xiaomi product is strictly following the relevant state laws and regulations. 

 

The next step is to connect the Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth headset, you can see it when you activate bluetooth on your mobile phone, it is quite convenient.


After connected, there is the power bar of the headset showing in the top status bar, it is privilege of the Xiaomi Mi bluetooth headset in MIUI system, not supported by other brands headphones.

 

 

This is the official details images that show all the components of the Mi bluetooth headset, the appearance is a 7 words, very simple.

 

After full charging, the indicator turns blue, this is the time you unplug the USB cable.

Wearing Method

Since this is a single-ear headphones, if not worn it correctly it is very easy to fall, especially people like me who love running, if not master the skill, there are high chances the earphone will drop halfway I run. Finally, I figure out this is the most scientific way to wear it.

 

First twist the ear cap aside.


It should be on the silicon cap along the stretch and withstand the cochlear external auditory canal, to prevent falling and shifting. If the silicon cap is not worn properly, the Mi bluetooth headset can easily drop and lost. Another reason that the silicone cap may not fit comfortably into the cochlear may be the size is not right, you can test to see which size is the best fit for you.

Just like what the instructions summarize, you should “gently slide the earphone into the ear hole, and headset remains in the same position even you slightly shake the head” – how graceful summary!  

Summary

After use of a period of time, let me summarize it in several parts. 

Call: basically meet the call requirement, the voice is clear, no noise, but sometimes the volume is weak and I am totally no idea what causes it, but this problem rarely happened. When receiving incoming call, it will tell the number, but I do hope that it can directly broadcast the caller’s name, how wonderful is it! 

Sound quality: If you want to have a good sound quality, this is not the bluetooth headset that you want, I only can say that the sound quality is better than the shanzhai version headphones, tri-band completely mixed together, no bass. With this, you only can listen to songs, if you want better sound quality, you need to find other price range Xiaomi Mi bluetooth headphones. 

Durability: After Full charge and the maximum volume, you can continuously listen to nearly 4 hours, with the charging base I am confident to said that 12 hours is completely no problem.

Connection: I think Bluetooth signal is not stable, sometimes when I put it in pants pockets, there will be intermittent situation, but it reconnects very soon.

99 Yuan for the kit, let Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth headset youth version kit championing the market among the 100yuan similar products. Although the product is still not perfect, such a price is really a good deal, I recommend to buy it. Here is the best deal you can find online!

Xiaomi Portable WIFI Review

Sometimes we have a computer that can access the internet but what if we want WiFi as well, and your computer cannot create WiFi without built-in wireless WiFi Card adapter. Although some third-party software allows user to create local area network it cannot do it without the help form WiFi card. Xiaomi Portable WiFi is a good solution for this problem and it can also be a good assistant for our daily smart office work. Get it the cheapest here!

█ Xiaomi Portable WiFi is packing with self-sealing white PE bag, it is Xiaomi way to packing small accessories. When Xiaomi Wifi USB released, it has several colors, but now Mi official website only sells black color partable MIWIFI.

█ Just plug in the Xiaomi Pocket WIFI to your desktop or laptop that can access the internet, then your mobile phone, Tablet can immediately enjoy a free WiFi created by  Xiaomi WIFI USD. Although a lot of similar product sold at market, base on the personal experience by using this device, I think that it better than other same type products in the market. 

█ Xiaomi Portable WiFi comes with a small lanyard that you can easily click on keychain. If we not cautious enough, it is very easy to lose it for such a small device like this.

█ The design of Portable MiWiFi looks like a mini thumb drive, it is in cube shape and you can unplug the lid from it just like a thumb drive. For my experience, at first Xiaomi WiFi USB can plug tightly into the computer but slowly it will get loosened, maybe due to abrasion.

█ Front part is matte with concave Mi logo while the small lid is polished smooth with a small lanyard hole near the edge, but I think that the lanyard hole should be placed on the body, because the lid may get loosen after using a period of time.

█ First glance at Xiaomi Portable WiFi, you may think it is mini usb thumb drive, very compact, coin size, can treat it as a phone pendant. It height only 27 cm, about the size of a 1 yuan coin, with a lanyard, hanging on the phone or keychain, Just plug and use.

█ How to use Xiaomi Portable WiFi

1. Xiaomi Pocket WiFi driver is pre-installed:

Please choose your current computer version to install.

2. After installation is complete, install Xiaomi Portable WiFi App on your mobile p a one for a better experience of the smart technology brings by Xiaomi Portable WiFi.

3.Open PC-side driver, it will prompt you to plug in the Xiaomi WIFI USD and then the system will automatically create a local area network. After created local area network, it will be displayed in the lower right corner and then you can set your username and password for your preferences. I here choose to use the default setting for username and password. 

█ Test speed for Xiaomi Portable WiFi, I used two commonly used wireless test software inspect on local area network created by Xiaomi pocket WIFI and the results is basically the same. You can see that it is a big gap in terms of transmission speed between the local area network that created by the Xiaomi Portable WiFi and the original network. That is to say, portable MIWIFI basically fulfill your need for daily office use but it cannot performs as well as original network.  

 

█ If Xiaomi Portable WiFi App installed on mobile phone,  then we can control the computer through the mobile phone. For now it only supports few simple action like shutdown, lock, hibernation, PPT control and file transfer. These are really used features when you want to lock the computer while you away, you can do it now by mobile phone to protect your privacy. For me, my favorite feature is Play on PPT, it is very easy to use.

█ Special Note:

Xiaomi Portable WiFi needs to rely on the network of computer to create free WiFi. If your computer’s operating system lacks network sharing components( Such as some user who used pirated Windows system), the device may not work properly. Here is the best deal you can find online!

Mi use a  “Little AI classmates” as Mi AI speaker wake words. It is pleasure to have a chance to test use immediately after it released, let me show you about the details specification of Mi AI Speaker. Get it the cheapest here!

 

Smart speakers are in the rapid development, just like the rapidly upgrade on artificial intelligence and speech recognition technology, that enables the interaction among human and machine progress to a new level, we enter the era of smart technology now. Mi AI speaker is one of the smart speakers that catch a lot of people eyes especially Mi fans since day one release.  The Mi AI speaker features very distinctive function and excellent sound quality! Mi AI speaker is first products released by Xiaomi Explore Lab which established by Xiaomi Ceo Lei Jun in 2015. Lei Jun always said that Xiaomi Explore Lab owns a lot of coolest and interesting black technology!

 

I felt the honor to receive the debut Mi AI Speaker commemorative edition, the box is designed in black gold color and it looks very high class. The letter of AI convex in gold look fashion and trendy. When this product starting to openly sell in the market, the Mi AI speaker will pack with a white box, for me the black gold still my favorite and it is memorable too.

At the side of the Mi AI Speaker box, it printed “Your smart home control center”. From here you can know that with Mi AI Speaker you can customize your smart life scenes, like say a good morning, Xiaomi Ai Speaker will help you open the curtains, turn on the lights and adjust the temperature of air conditioning, and also help you turn on the water heater, TV and so on. One devices that can control all smart home products, it is really your smart home control center!

Pull out the black box,  you can see there is a white overlay + box that give more protection to Mi AI Speaker, this pure white internal box is similar colour with Mi AI speakers and I like it very much.

When Opened the box, there is an adoption agreement for Xiaomi AI speaker, and I will be a guardian of this Mi AI Speaker. The way Mi company treat Mi AI Speaker like a human being is really awesome. It make me feel that Mi Ai Speaker is a people that belong to me.

Then there is the product manual for the Mi AI Speaker, you can find all the details regarding the Mi AI Speaker which include how to use, details features, smart play, basic parameters and precautions matters.

Now we can see how is Mi AI Speaker look like, basically it is pure white tower shape design, some netizen comments that it looks like a small size  Mi Air Purifier.

 

You can find the Mi AI Speaker charger upper part in the box, the charger is cube shape, and the back has listed out some of the parameters, such as power specifications: DC 12V 1.75A, rated output power:> 5W. The wire of the charger also white color so will easily get dusty after some time, for people like me who have some OCD symptom, it makes me feel bad.

For the first artificial intelligence smart speaker presented by Xiaomi, although at first glance it looks like Mi air purifier after close observation, actually this is excellent artificial intelligence smart speaker power by outstanding design, smooth appearance, and voice interaction technology.  I think it is commendable that Xiaomi brought anthropomorphic character set to an artificial intelligence smart speaker, and at the same time, I think it is very funny.

Mi AI Speaker is in a rounded cube shape, the irregular holes below the body make it very recognizable, while the white color makes it not only more easily integrated into the home decoration, but also added a beautiful landscape to the home.

The upper part of the Mi AI Speaker, there is a warm reminder to prompt you to scan the QR code to download the App to complete the initial settings.You can change the setting on Xiaomi AI Speaker App.

Small groove design of the power jack makes the power cord can be hidden behind the speaker, beautiful and concise. In actual use when I need to unplug the power jack it is quite difficult, I try few times still cannot make it. It is recommended to optimize the power supply interface later, to make it easier when need to unplug the power.

The control panel is located top of the body, with an array of six microphones, and all the control button you need including play, previous track, next track, mute and mode switching button. There is a smooth touch ring for adjusting volume by gesture recognition, there is a round of breathing light along the edge of the speaker, that makes the speaker look advanced. The color will change base on different operation mode. Overall, the design concept of Mi AI Speaker looks like a bit similar to previous product and the variety of its function and customize setting will surely make the user love it very much.

 

By scanning the QR code to download beta version of Mi AI App, before starting to use you need to log in to your account. You need to use Mi account to log in, and this account also can use on all Mi products. When you logged in, the breathing light of Mi AI Speaker will turn orange.

 

Select next, the APP will automatically search Mi AI Speaker. When it found Mi AI Speaker and connected. You will need to set your speaker WiFi setting to enable the speaker connect to internet, so AI Speaker can fully perform.

When successfully connected, Xiaomi AI App will initially set up on the Mi AI Speaker, after the operation completed, you can use the speaker. Now, you can expect amazing things about to happen!

Mi AI App will prompt you name of singers, music genre, travel and interest setting. After you selected, you will enter the main interface of the App.

 

Mi AI App is divided into “music stations, smart home hub, skills center and personal center.” It is very obvious, this 4 categories is what Mi AI Speaker is good in.

 

In “Skills Center,” Xiaomi lists some phrases that teach you how to check the weather, ask for travel information, idioms Solitaire or even show you stock market trend today. For now, it covering all aspects of children, tools, education, life, entertainment, I am sure it will provide more and more skills and function in future.

“Smart home hub”  section is the main function that provides by Mi AI speakers. Xiaomi AI speaker can be your smart assistant, you can use your voice to control a bunch of Mi home smart home product with the help of Mi AI Speaker. Currently, there are 60 million smart homes products from Mi eco-chain enterprise that activated and in use. Can you imagine Mi AI Speaker can connect and interacted with over 10 millions family, this is unimaginable for Mi competitor. “Personal Center” is another word for setting. Mi AI Speaker can use as a normal Bluetooth speaker for playing song that store in your mobile phone, you only need to connected the speaker with your mobile phone Bluetooth.

 

Mi AI Speaker is better than most of its competitor in terms of sound quality. It uses a sound cone reflection and waveguide technology. They are two built-in reverses mounted passive diaphragm, a diaphragm vibration pushes the air to drive another diaphragm vibration, the two superposition can be obtained beyond the volume limit of low-frequency loudness. Forming a 360-degree sound field of the ring to achieve 360 degrees sound broadcast. Thanks for the good job done by Mi Explore Lab, the sound quality of the Xiaomi AI Speaker is great.

Summary:

The emergence of Mi AI Speaker is a game-changing product in smart speaker market, with it incredible prize, compact looks and power by dual-band WiFi, high volume, good sound quality, and able to control a host of smart home products. Not to mention it voice interaction technology that frees our hand, for now you can use your voice to control your smart home devices, this is pretty amazing with only one speaker can become a control center for a lot of smart home products. The Mi AI Speaker will not exist with effort from the Mi Explore Lab team, and I want to says a big thank to them. A successful speaker will make the user feel inseparable from her, and I think Mi AI speaker is basically done that, well done for Mi company. 

The actual experience in test use the smart speaker I found out some problem that needs to be optimized like language recognition. I would like to recommend Mi company to add the speaker control button to Mi AI App too, to make the operation more convenient.

There are still a bunch of function needs further Optimization and development and Xiaomi needs to do more on privacy protection, which a lot of user concern with.

Finally hope that Mi AI Speaker will know you better! Here is the best deal you can find online!
