Xiaomi is a Chinese smartphone brand that is quite popular in the Nepalese market too. Xiaomi Nepal has recently launched its MI TV stick here in Nepal. It is a simple solution for all your media consumption needs. It is a device that converts your regular TV into a smart TV. There are not many options for selecting a TV box here in Nepal, especially in the budget segment. Therefore MI TV stick might be an excellent option to consider. Xiaomi MI TV stick is straightforward to use. It is just a plug-and-play simple device. You have to plug it into the HDMI port of your regular TV and connect the provided micro USB cable to the MI TV stick. After a few simple set up on your TV screen, you are good to go. The max output of the MI TV stick is 1080p. But as for the initial non-smart TV you have, I think you won’t notice the difference.

Mi TV Stick Build and Design
Mi TV stick is a compact, sleek and straightforward pen drive-looking device that gets the job done. For the dimensions, it’s 92.4/30.4mm. You only get it in a black color variant which is pretty decent looking. The box also comes with a remote controller, power adapter, and a USB-A to micro-USB cable. About the remote controller, it’s a standard black color which is minimal, containing only a few buttons, including a built-in mic and dedicated Netflix, amazon prime video, and google assistant buttons. The remote controller connects with Bluetooth instead of IR control which I think is a good thing.
Specifications and features
Xiaomi MI TV stick is powered by a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, which clocks up to 2.0 GHz with an ARM Mali-450 GPU. It has 1 GB of RAM with 8 GB of internal storage. So your performance is expected to be fine. MI TV stick runs Android TV version 9.0. It has a clean UI design. The apps work well with their optimized version for TV.

For the audio, the MI TV stick supports Dolby audio and DTS 2.0, which provides rich and stereo audio. It also has a built-in chrome cast so that you can cast any content directly to your TV from your mobile devices.

It is priced reasonably at Rs. 5,999, and you can get it from authorized Xiaomi stores near you. As Xiaomi’s Mi TV stick has all the basics for your regular TV needs, I think it’s a good deal from Xiaomi.
