Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse Experience: Come, Let Me Tell You What is The Real "Using experience"

Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse Experience: Come, Let Me Tell You What is The Real "Using experience"

Combining voice input with traditional office methods is a problem that has not yet been optimally solved.

Whether it is the JMGO TNT workstation or the previous hardware from intelligent voice input companies, they are generally niche and immature. These products are not necessary and the price is not popular. Obviously, they are far from popularization. Although the smart phone has a good voice input experience, it obviously cannot be used as a productivity tool, and the use conditions are relatively limited.

The Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse has taken a different approach. It has realized the voice input function for traditional computers in the form of peripherals, and the cheap price and good design have brought a new way to the productivity of voice input. As for whether it is successful, you have to use it before knowing. Up.

It's a mouse, but not just a mouse

As a fish hunting editor, I often don't do stupid things like taking the initiative to do things, but Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse made me break the routine this time.

The reason is simple. As a person who only knows two-finger typing, voice input is one of my common input methods, and I use voice input to write many reviews. However, the way of using mobile phone voice input and editing via computer is obviously not so comfortable. After all, when I use voice input to write articles, I often go to get off work or at home, and at home I actually need a peripheral that can voice input. After all, it is very troublesome for the text to go back and forth between the computer and the mobile phone.

Coincidentally, Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse is the product I need.

Look at the design first. According to the official statement, the Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse adopts the round cobblestone design of the runway, the body adopts ergonomic design and aluminum extrusion, CNC precision processing and sandblasting processing technology, and also has a laser-engraved Xiaoai LOGO indicator on the top. In addition, the color of the voice button also adopts the same red color as the Xiaomi mobile phone. The metal four-way wheel and the antibacterial material shell also add points to it. The mouse has a dedicated translation button on the side of the mouse.

In terms of hardware, Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse uses a 4000DPI sensor and an Omron micro switch with a lifetime of 10 million times. It supports Bluetooth 5.0 low energy consumption and dual connection modes with Bluetooth and USB receivers. It has a built-in 750mAh battery and uses a USB Type-C interface. . The upper cover is fixed by magnetic attraction, and the USB connector can be stored or taken out only by prying up from the gap.

If you want to use all the functions of Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse, it is not enough to rely on the receiver or Bluetooth connection. You must download the supporting Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse software. Both voice input and intelligent control, search and translation need to be carried out through software. If you use it without installing the software, you will only be able to enjoy the experience of a normal wireless mouse.

Through the software, we can fully customize the Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse, such as setting the default search engine, translation language, etc. In addition, the Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse also supports 1200/2400/4000 three-speed DPI adjustment, and the kinetic energy of the mouse wheel dialing and short pressing the translation key can also be customized. I personally set the left and right mouse wheel to copy and paste, and short press the translation key to set it to back. In addition, there are more setting methods for you to choose.

Just long press the left and right buttons of the Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse at the same time to switch between the two paired devices, which is obviously not a small attraction for users of multi-device office. The translation key and the left and right movement of the mouse wheel can also be fully customized, and the functions between short press and long press are also well distinguished, and there is little possibility of misoperation.

For "old people" like me who can't accept a mouse that is too sensitive, the highest 4000DPI is actually enough or even too much. After all, according to my personal habits, I feel that the sensitivity is too high to control when I open 1200DPI. Considering that the positioning of the Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse is basically to meet daily office needs, the highest 4000DPI is actually not a problem.

In terms of the sense of grasping and shaking hands, it is still the habit of scoring in two situations: lying and grasping. If you are accustomed to grasping mice, then the grip of Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse is actually reasonable; but if you are accustomed to using the mouse, the less ergonomic curve of its tail is still very obvious, and it is too uplifted. There is always a feeling of holding up the palm of the tail. Regrettably, I personally belong to the kind that is accustomed to lying rats.

Of course, this kind of mysterious and mysterious thing must make sense to everyone, but from my personal point of view, I really don't recommend the Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse for squatting lovers.

Moreover, for users of Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse, the product function as a "mouse" is obviously not what everyone cares about the most.

It's a mouse, but not just a mouse

Since it supports voice input, the actual performance of voice input is very important. How about the performance of Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse?

Although it can perform voice input by short-pressing the button after installing the software, and the response speed and wake-up success rate are very good, the accuracy of the input is still necessary. Although the voice recognition accuracy of Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse is relatively good, and the input of the Chinese part is relatively accurate, computer editing can indeed save the tool of typing with both hands. It seems that there is no problem, but is it really the case?

I am most afraid of comparison in everything. When compared with the voice input of the relatively easy-to-use Xunfei input method on the mobile phone, the input accuracy of the Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse is not small, especially for the voice input that contains professional terms. Let's take a look at the actual input effect first.

It may be difficult to discover the traces of BenQ PD2705Q tailor-made for notebook products from the outside, but after experiencing it, you can feel that its "tailor-made" notebook computer is still traceable.

Original sentence: Mi 10 Pro is not only the most powerful Mi mobile phone in recent years, but also Mi's first real high-end mobile phone. But here, we are not talking about the high refresh rate curved screens and the performance of the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, but want to talk about the "100 million" high-spec four-camera module on the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. Able to reach the current top level in experience .

Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse Voice Input: " Xiaomi Stone is not only the most powerful Xiaomi mobile phone in recent years, but also the first real high-end mobile phone of Xiaomi. But here we are not talking about the high refresh rate group, Snapdragon The content of the performance of the 845 mobile platform is to talk about whether Xiaomi has a high-spec four-shot module of 100 million, and whether it can reach the current top-level follow-up in experience ."

The voice input of iFLYTEK’s input method on the mobile phone: “ Xiaomi proves that it is not only the most powerful Xiaomi phone in recent years, but also Xiaomi’s first real high-end phone, but here we are not talking about high refresh filter The curved screen, the performance content of the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, but I want to talk about whether Xiaomi has a high-standard 4-camera module with a 100 million yuan, whether it can reach the current top level in experience ."

It can be seen from the results of the voice input above that, compared with the iFLYTEK input method on the mobile phone, the Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse cannot input Arabic numerals and English mixed in Chinese by voice, and the recognition of whether it is a sentence or part of a vocabulary is accurate The rate also has obvious shortcomings, and iFLYTEK can recognize and input professional vocabulary such as "Snapdragon 865 mobile platform", but Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse obviously cannot.

In terms of translation function, Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse supports direct long-pressing to translate Chinese into English, Japanese or Chinese, and also supports switching from Chinese to English, Japanese and Chinese, or from English to simplified Chinese after selecting a paragraph of text. Here we still use the above paragraph for translation test:

Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse Voice Translation: " Xiaomi food is not only the most powerful Xiaomi phone in recent years. Redstone is also Xiaomi's first truly high-end phone, We're not talking about high refresh rate curved screen snapdragon 865 mobile platform,Is Xiaomi able to reach the top level of the current experience in terms of whether the 100 million high-specification four-shot module can reach the top level in the experience? ”

The Chinese translation of the English translation above: " Xiaomi Foods is not only the most powerful Xiaomi phone in recent years. Redstone is also Xiaomi’s first real high-end phone. We are not talking about the snapdragon 865 mobile platform with a high refresh rate curved screen. , Can Xiaomi’s 100 million high-spec four-camera modules reach the current top level in terms of experience? "

The performance of voice translation is similar to the Chinese voice input above. First enter Chinese in the input box, and then convert the Chinese content into a foreign language. However, due to the limited performance of the Chinese voice input of Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse, the input content often has the situation where the foreword is not followed by the language or the vocabulary is wrong. After being translated into English, not only the semantics are very different, but the readability is also relatively poor.

In terms of the selected translation function, Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse only supports translating Chinese within 100 characters into foreign languages, or translating English within 100 words into Chinese. We use Samsung’s "Samsung adds two new premium soundbars to Translation test of the first natural paragraph of the article "round off its 2020 lineup":

Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse Translation: " Samsung announced that it will add two new high-quality sound bars to its Q series products-HW-Q950T and HW-Q900T. HW-Q950T is now the company's best quality sound bar, providing 9.1.4 channel sound. On the other hand, HW-Q900T provides 7.1.2 channel audio. Not only do these sound bars sound great, they also look great, thanks to the high-quality Kvadrat materials they pack inside. "

 DeepL translation: " Samsung announced that it has added two new high-end speakers to its Q series product line-HW-Q950T and HW-Q900T. HW-Q950T is the company's current most high-end audio player, providing a 9.1.4 channel Sound. The HW-Q900T provides 7.1.2 channel audio. Thanks to the use of high-quality Kvadrat materials, these two speakers not only have excellent sound quality, but also have a very beautiful appearance. "

It can be seen that Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse actually does a good job of selecting the translation function. Although the translation of professional words such as "soundbar" is slightly worse, the overall semantics can be fully understood. However, in the literary part of the translation of "Xindaya" and the problem of half-width input method to full-width input method, the performance of Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse is indeed not as good as that of "top players" such as DeepL, but it meets the needs of daily use Obviously not a problem.

But one more thing to note, DeepL can easily translate long texts of thousands of words, while Xiaomi Xiaoaimouse is limited to 100 words.

As for the voice control function, it seems to me more like an icing on the cake. After all, they all support voice input. It is obviously not difficult to open IoT control. Compared with the voice input function that I am not so satisfied with, I am quite satisfied with the smart control function of Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse, which has a very good control experience for smart home.

However, if you think about it carefully, the intelligent control function of this mouse is relatively narrow. After all, if you are at home and I have Xiaomi AIoT devices at home, users who have Xiaomi AIoT devices are likely to have a small love speaker; if they are away from home, they have no control over smart devices at home. This function is not just needed, and the usage scenarios are relatively narrow. However, considering that this is basically a "free delivery" function, of course it is also "don't be free"-after all, it is actually meaningful as a supplement to Xiaoai speakers.

The direction is right, but lacks some "maturity"

Let me talk about the conclusion first, Xiaomi Xiaoai Mouse has a good design idea and product form, but it is a pity that Xiaomi does not have the strength to make it perfect.

As an intelligent mouse that focuses on voice input, the accuracy of voice input will have an overwhelming impact on its product strength. As an editor who often uses voice input, I have extremely high input accuracy when I choose a voice input tool. Priority. The smart mouse with relatively low input accuracy is certainly not as easy to use as the high-accuracy smart phone. This is an inevitable result after fully considering productivity.

Of course, considering that the microphone performance of Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse is pretty good, and software problems will always have a chance to be solved through firmware update, so I still have certain expectations for the future of this mouse. But even if the voice input function is aside, just as a rechargeable wireless mouse at this price, Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse actually has a good price/performance ratio.

But if you ask me how to voice input and translation? In the face of the still immature Xiaomi Xiaoai mouse, I still think the combination of iFLYTEK+DeepL on the mobile phone is better. The reason is simple-they do perform better and can bring more productivity.
