We know Xiaomi better with its affordable and efficient handsets, but you know that the company’s product portfolio is extremely diverse and everything you can think of can be found in it. Xiaomi TVs are some of these products that have shone in the global market, but in Iran, not enough attention has been paid to them yet. In this article, I want to review one of the newest economical TVs of this company, the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 smart TV.
Xiaomi Mi TV P1 smart TV is in the category of economic products of this company and is produced in 32, 43, 50 and 55 inch models. Except for the 32-inch model, which surprisingly has an HD display, all other models use 4K UHD panels. Another interesting point is that different members of this family use different panels. The 55-inch model we have has a VA panel made by TCL company, which gives you a unique experience of watching content with very high color accuracy. In the following, we will review the specifications of this TV.

Called “Digital Life Database”, the store offers a variety of products, including mobile phones, audio and video equipment, laptops, network equipment and various gadgets. To buy Xiaomi TV and other products you can go to PB 360 online store website See.
Design and build quality
Xiaomi Mi TV P1 looks incredibly beautiful and attractive at first glance. This device, like most Xiaomi products, is designed to be simple and stylish and fits all tastes. From the front view, we see a large panel with margins of less than 1 cm, which reaches about 1.5 cm with the black border around the screen image. The Xiaomi logo is located in the middle of the bottom edge and below it we see the additional part where the remote receiver, power button and on / off switch of the TV microphone are located. The TV stands are attached to the body with two screws and are slightly angled. As an economical TV, you can give full credit to the design of this product.
If we take a closer look at the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 smart TV, we can see that Xiaomi has done its best to lower the price of the device. The frame around the TV is made of glossy plastic and stains quickly, while not having much resistance to scratches and scratches. Even though the TV weighs 12 kg, the bases are plastic. Of course, it seems that the strength of the bases is enough to withstand the weight of the device, but metal bases could give more confidence to the buyer.
The back of the device or a metal plate is covered, but the cover of electronic circuits and ports is also plastic. The standard VESA base socket is 30 by 30 cm for mounting the TV on the wall behind the device. The total thickness of the TV without a stand is about 9 cm, but if you want to put the TV on the table, you need a minimum width of 28.5 cm.
Ports and communication capabilities
The condition of the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 smart TV is quite standard in terms of communication features. On the back of the device we see two sets of ports. The first category includes the antenna and digital receiver input, the composite image input, the optical audio output, and the network port, which are facing down. On the left edge are two USB 2.0 ports, three HDMI ports and headphone output. Xiaomi Economy TV is also equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and 2.4 and 5 GHz dual band WiFi.
The Xiaomi TV remote control is the same one we’ve seen on other models, including the Mi TV 4S (Digito review). This remote has a very beautiful design and extraordinary build quality, while being compact and light. Two dedicated buttons for quick access to Amazon Prime Video and Netflix programs are installed on this remote, which of course are not widely used in Iran. There is no mute button, but you can mute the volume down by pressing the volume down button twice.
Another feature of this TV is a dedicated microphone for voice communication. This microphone is installed in the lower part of the body and has its own key so that you can deactivate it if you do not need it.
As Android TV 11 is not yet ubiquitous, the Xiaomi Mi TV P1, like most TVs on the market, is equipped with the Android TV 10 operating system. The simple user interface of this operating system may not be to everyone’s liking, but if you are looking for smooth and painless operation of a smart TV, you probably will not have a problem with it. Of course, Xiaomi has also designed its own user interface, PatchWall, which is very similar to Apple tvOS, but to enable it, you have to change your location. I enabled this mode on the India region and naturally all the ads and banners on the device’s home screen changed to Indian movies.
MediaTek MT9611 quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM has enough power to run the usual user interface and applications. The speed of installation and execution of programs is quite satisfactory and we do not see any slowness or lag in any part of the user interface. So the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 smart TV hardware does not need you from Android Box.
Although most of the default programs of this TV, including Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and other foreign content distribution services are not used in Iran, I suggest you install Iranian apps such as Filimo, Aparat and Nemava so that you can access a complete set of movies and series. Be.
Audio and video quality
Naturally, the most important issue when choosing a TV is the sound and video quality. As I said, the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 uses a TCL VK panel with 4K UHD resolution. You may not expect high quality VA panels, but the panel used in this TV is very high quality and depicts the content very visually.
This TV has a very high color accuracy and covers a wide DCI-P3 color space up to 94%. It also has a display capacity of 1.07 billion colors and officially supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 + technologies. So you have all the facilities you need to watch the highest quality video content in the world, as long as you have access to such videos.
I watched various videos on this TV; From standard HD video to 4K HDR video. Naturally, the image quality you see is directly related to the quality of the source video. If you want to watch standard HD video on this 4K TV, you have to be 4-5 meters away from the TV because at closer distances the picture quality is delicious. There is no feature to increase the image quality in this device, which is quite normal for an economical TV. Watching standard full HD videos on the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 smart TV is quite satisfying, especially if the video quality is high and you can watch it from a distance. You will be amazed at the picture quality when you watch standard 4K video on this TV. The detail and clarity of the image is so high that you will enjoy watching any content.
If you want the best visual experience, you should go for 4K HDR videos. I watched some promotional videos and a movie with these features on the Xiaomi Mi TV P1. In this mode, the TV automatically detects HDR content and activates its specific mode. In this case, using a large color space, the video content will be much different from what you normally see. Xiaomi has three modes for HDR content, including Vivid, Standard and Movie modes. Depending on your taste, you can choose one of three modes, but Vivid mode displays more attractive content.
Since this TV has the official Dolby Vision and HDR10 + certification, you can use YouTube or other content streaming services to watch HDR videos. I tested this feature with YouTube and the result was incredible. In fact, being able to watch such a video from an online video streaming service will not become commonplace any time soon, especially in our country where you have to have extremely high speed internet and cross various internal and external barriers.
Xiaomi Mi TV P1 has Motion Smoothness, which uses artificial intelligence to increase the frame rate to 60 frames per second. Of course, this feature is not recommended for watching movies, because it displays completely unnatural content and takes the atmosphere of the cinema away from it.
Xiaomi Smart TV HDMI port supports standards 1.4, 2.0 and 2.1. The HDMI 2.1 standard is capable of displaying images with a maximum resolution of 4K, a rate of 60 Hz and HDR mode. So if you have a device like PlayStation 4 Pro, you can play your best favorite games with the highest quality. When connecting the game console to the TV, be sure to set the image mode to Game mode to minimize input latency and have a smoother gaming experience. With the built-in Miracast receiver, you can easily transfer the image of your mobile phone to the TV and enjoy the big picture.
Xiaomi Mi TV P1’s two 15-watt speakers play very loud sound that easily covers even large spaces (above 30 meters). In general use, you will not need to increase the volume by more than 30 (out of 100). The sound quality is quite satisfactory in terms of resolution and resolution up to 40, and you can even use the TV to listen to music. If you increase the volume above 40, you will experience sound distortion and loss of quality. So I suggest you consider advanced home audio systems if sound quality is important to you.
Xiaomi Mi TV P1 smart TV is one of the best TVs in the market in the price range of about 15 million Tomans. The picture quality of this TV is unparalleled in this price range, and if you have access to quality content, especially 4K HDR videos, you will have a special pleasure from choosing this product. Of course, the quality of this TV does not reach the old or Cold models, but for the amount you pay, it will deliver the best output to you.
The choice between Android TV 10 and Xiaomi Patchwall UI depends on your taste, but I recommend the first one for pure Android lovers. Both modes run very smoothly and without noticeable lag and delay. The ability to add Google account and Xiaomi account and install various programs are other features of this smart TV.
The only drawback to this TV is the use of glossy plastic in the TV frame and even the plastic bases, which slightly reduces the attractiveness of the product. However, this problem can be ignored because of the reasonable price.
Finally, if you are looking for a relatively large TV with numerous features and excellent picture quality, the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 smart TV is one of the best options.
