Xiaomi is now a well known brand in Asia, so much so that it has become the biggest threat to Apple in China.
The same can be the case in India soon with the company aiming to reach a revenue of $2 Billion in the country in 2018.
There is no denying the fact that Xiaomi is offering some top-notch products.
One such entry is the latest Selfie Stick from Xiaomi.
Major Features of the Product
The Xiaomi Selfie Stick comes loaded with a ton of features as listed below:
- It can be used both as a selfie stick as well as a Tripod Stand for those perfect mesmerizing clicks.
- With 360-degree rotation feature, it gives you the freedom to capture more of what you see with the perfect viewing angle for every occasion.
- The body of the product is made of an Aluminium alloy which makes it extremely lightweight to use and hold. This seems perfect for prolonged selfie sessions!
- Non-slip design reduces hassles and makes sure that your mobile is safe at all times.
- The Stick comes packed with a 60mAh Lithium-ion battery that is rechargeable along with the feature of Bluetooth 3.0 that can be accessed via the provided remote control.
The design of the product calls out for a special mention here since it is not only an amazing selfie stick but also doubles up as a quality tripod stand. This gives you the benefits of two products packed in one powerful combo.
In addition, the material of the product is such that it is accompanied by a non-slip foot pad design that enables you to use the stick with a carefree outlook. This also provides extra stability while clicking pictures or recording videos.
While in the tripod mode, your device rests comfortably on the hinges of the stick which makes it perfect for impeccable video calls or capturing the landscape without any interruptions. And with a little bit of creativity, you can even use it to click some amazing selfies!
Moreover, the Bluetooth shutter release button makes it flawless to capture memories. This button can also be detached from the stick to take pictures from a distance when the device is in Tripod mode.
Comparison With Other Popular Selfie Sticks
As compared to other popular selfie sticks in the market like the Mpow iSnap Y and the Foneso Selfie Stick, the Xiaomi selfie stick fares much better both in features and price. While the entry from Mpow lacks the useful feature of a convertible Tripod stand, the Foneso stick is priced much higher for similar product offerings.
Though the safety feature of the wrist strap that comes with the iSnap Y would have been a welcome entry for the Xiaomi Selfie stick for an extended dual security of your devices.
The Xiaomi Selfie Stick Bluetooth Remote Shutter Tripod Holder is priced at INR 2,099 on Amazon. This seems like a modest and competitive price given that you are essentially receiving two products for the price of one.
Where to Buy?
The Xiaomi Selfie Stick cum Tripod Stand is an amazing product with a plethora of useful features, both for casual and beginner photography. The extended feature of a tripod stand at a competitive price for a selfie stick makes it stand out from the crowd and a leading choice in the market.
But if you are looking for a dedicated tripod stand for smartphone photography, this might not be a great choice since the limited extension of the stick in tripod mode drabs the equation to some extent.
