Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini review

By  Nap Paarlberg 2019-12-26 3127 195

Compared with the high-priced Xiaomi routing, the newly released Xiaomi routing mini undoubtedly attracts more attention. It also supports the 802.11ac protocol and costs only 129RMB, which is known as the cheapest dual-band AC intelligent routing. At the beginning of the release, we already got an engineering machine (not yet a public testing machine) and experienced it. However, as the background is relatively simple, and can not be associated with the latest Xiaomi router APP, has great functional limitations, we had no choice but to call it: not smart enough.

After 2 months, we finally ushered in the public trial version of Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini,. The latest MiWiFi ROM has been updated every week, and the mobile phone APP has been perfectly adapted. So how does the so-called Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini perform? How much smarter than before? The following is the evaluation of Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini experience brought by the author.

Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini design

Because there is no difference in appearance and specifications between the public testing machine and the previous engineering machine, mainly because of the upgrade and stability of the system, we will briefly introduce in this part.

Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini is changed from vertical to horizontal, the fuselage is very flat, the antenna design on both sides is very ingenious, it can be used as an antenna when it is used, and it can be better integrated with the fuselage when put down. Like Xiaomi routing, mini's power interface is not designed for Micro USB power, but it doesn't matter in everyday homes, but what does it mean if you don't send a network cable?

Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini looks angular and stylish, but the whole is not out of the shape of the router, far from the height of Xiaomi routing, and looks much cheaper. It is worth mentioning that the Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini focuses on the colorful body, with a total of red, orange, blue, white, green and black six colors to meet the individual needs of users and different decoration styles.

We already know that the Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini uses the MT7260A single-core processing chip of the main frequency 580MHz (Xiaomi routing is the Boardcom dual-core chip of the main frequency 1.0GHz), with built-in 128MB memory. It supports 802.11ac specification and 2.4GHz/5GHz dual-band Wi-Fi, with a total bandwidth of 1166Mbps, which can be said to be the most cost-effective dual-band AC router at present. 

The interface provides a 100-megabyte WAN port, two 100-megabit LAN ports and a USB 2.0 interface. In view of the location of Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini, these interfaces are barely enough fro use.

Surface scrub texture and good touch

Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini also has its own characteristics in terms of heat dissipation, almost all of the bottom is designed as a heat dissipation hole, coupled with the high uplift at the back of the route, the obvious heat flow can be felt by touching the bottom when working.

Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router Mini concise system

When we were in the engineering machine experience, the system is still in version 0.3.8, has been upgraded to 0.3.46. On the whole, the interface has basically not changed, it still uses the minimalist style, while the function has been increased to a certain extent. of course, the most important upgrade is that the stability of the system has been enhanced

Similar to the polar routing background. Clicking the icon on the page will pop up the corresponding settings menu. For example, clicking "computer" will display "Terminal Management", but the function is still too immature. You can only view some information and disconnect it. Renaming is not supported, and current speed and used traffic cannot be viewed.
