I am really satisfied with the Mi Band 4, with the new looks, suffice my needs of getting the sleeping data, tracking my daily walkabouts and steps and what I like most it comes with a higher resolution full AMOLED RGB screen, now able to track my swimming stroke in my hotel swimming sessions with it's 6 axis sensors. Next , I can still inter-change my Mi Band 3 strap with my Mi Band 4 which is completely compatible. Everything, seems to run smoothly and flawlessly and least and not last, it makes a handy music control on my wrist, but less that is still not able to be a remote for the camera which is useful. My review is based on the Mi Band 4 non-NFC, China imported set. As you see from my review, it automatically changes to English despite of a China set. Support for local languages will be added later via OTA update. For Mi Band 4 NFC version has XiaoAi voice support, can be used to control Mi Home appliances and can swipe bus cards, access cards and support Alipay payment.
I would certainly think, it's a well worth upgrade for me. Till next time.
