What to Expect from Xiaomi Mi TV P1 Series


Ask any Pinoy and they’d tell you that a TV is one of the essential appliances at home. This is because it’s the most practical entertainment tool around. You just make a one-time purchase and you get loads of free entertainment for several years. This is also why people often go for TV upgrades or updated versions every few years. For those who are looking for a new TV that fits the budget, the new Xiaomi Mi TV P1 Series is worth considering.

What does the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 Series Offer?

If you’ve been on a hunt for affordable Smartphones and TVs then you’re likely familiar with the Xiaomi brand. This Chinese brand is known for practically priced Smartphones and TVs. The Mi TV P1 series is their latest offering in the smart home entertainment line.  You can take your pick among 4 different sizes, 55 inches, 50 inches, 43 inches, and 32 inches. Each one builds to consider both your space and viewing needs. The ultimate pick is of course the 55 inch TV.

Key features and My Humble Opinion (IMHO)
Bezel-less design

This TV is made with polycarbonate plastic which isn’t something that you would expect from a TV. However, the bezel-less design made it look good and added chic to an otherwise plastic look and feel of the TV. It has a glossy panel that may mirror items in front of the screen so it’ll be best not to place it across the window.

Bezel-free on three sides, this groundbreaking design offers a higher screen-to-body ratio and 178° viewing angles, delivering a more immersive and enjoyable viewing experience.

IMHO: In terms of design, if you can look past the more plastic than metal appearance then it’s not so bad at all.

Sensitive 4K resolution

4K UHD resolution delivers true-to-life images with more detail and greater depth

IMHO: The sharpness is exceptional and the vibrancy is sufficient to satisfy your casual viewing needs.

Dolby Vision® and HDR10+

This feature lets you enjoy a wide color coverage as well as a more dynamic contrast and picture quality. Definitely a plus for those who love to watch Netflix and movies.

A higher dynamic range delivers brighter brights and darker darks by enhancing the sharpness, contrast and color of images, while true-to-life levels of detail let you see more than ever before.

IMHO: What’s not to love about this feature? I love Netflix so this is a plus feature for me.

MEMC support

Gives you a higher frame rate that translates to smoother viewing.

MEMC can automatically insert compensation frames in low-frame-rate content to eliminate screen tearing and juddering, delivering greater fluidity to fast-paced movements during sporting events, motor racing and more.

IMHO: People who enjoy watching sports will also appreciate this feature.

User-friendly Android TV™ system with built-in Google Assistant.

It runs on Android 10 iOS and allows you to surf and download your favorite apps. There is also a Hands-free and Bluetooth connectivity feature that allows you to surf or switch channels without necessarily using the remote control.

Simplify your entertainment experience with Android TV. Access 400,000+ movies and shows, and download 7000+ apps in one place.
360° Bluetooth remote control –
Bluetooth connectivity means you can control your TV from any direction you choose. Enjoy easy access to Netflix and Prime Video with dedicated remote control shortcut keys.

IMHO: This is perfect for people who like to multitask or watch TV while doing house chores or surf while working on a project etc. It’s also great for kids. We didn’t have any trouble downloading games and apps like Discovery from Google Play. My daughter Sam even enjoyed using the Hands-free Google Assistant as she surfs the TV.

Dolby Audio™ and DTS-HD®

Audio is good and comes out loud and crisp thereby allowing you to enjoy crystal clear stereo sounds.

IMHO: My husband is very particular with audio features and he’s quite happy with this one. But it could be better if the bass could be improved. As such you may want to use it with a 5.1 surround sound system for the ultimate experience.

Overall Specs and Spend Ratio IMHO

Value for money is the name of the game for smart shoppers. In the case of the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 Series the Specs and Spend Ratio actually exceeded our expectations. This is mostly because of its performance and the viewing experience that we enjoyed from it. Taking all the plus and misses in the features, the Mi TV is still a good option for those who want a mid-range TV that gives value for money.

Mi TV P1 Series 55’’, 50’’, 43’’, and 32’’ are available for purchase at PHP 24,990, PHP 22,990, PHP 18,990, and PHP 10,990 respectively.
