Although Xiaomi has been selling televisions in China for years, the arrival in Spain of these products is much more recent and its catalog, therefore, smaller. Leaving aside its QLED model ( Mi TV Q1, 75 inches ), the offer of the Asian brand in our country is based around the Mi TV P1 series, available in 32, 43, 50 and 55 inches.
The product that we have tested is the latter, a 55-inch Mi TV P1 , 4K UHD with Dolby Vision, HDR10 +, Dolby Audio and DTS-HD, in addition to Android TV 10.


The design is simple and elegant, with very fine(except at the bottom) and a depth, without the legs, of 90 millimeters. These legs (they come in the box and you need a screwdriver to put them on) are located on the sides of the screen, but turned slightly towards the center. They are made of plastic , like most of the device (the back, the frames…), but very stable. It is also possible to hook the TV to the wall, buying the corresponding accessory separately.
The power button is under the logo at the bottom of the screen (there are also some indicator lights that come on when we have turned off the microphone so that Google does not listen to us; if they are off, the assistant is active) and the connectorsThey are located on the left side of the screen and on the back, at the bottom (access to the latter is a bit inconvenient if you choose to put the TV on its legs and not on the wall).

Processor and operating system

My TV P1 has a MediaTek 9611 processor , with A55 quad-core CPU, Mali G52 MP2 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage . It comes with Android TV 10 installed as the operating system and, for those who do not feel comfortable with it (as is our case), Xiaomi has added PatchWall , its own interface that facilitates access in a way that, in our opinion, is simpler to applications and content. favourites.
TheBluetooth 360 degree remote control is similar to other similar products of the company, with access to the main functionalities and dedicated buttons for Netflix and Prime Video.
The TV has built-in Chromecast and is compatible with Google Assistant voice commands .


The sound, as is often the case with mid-range televisions, is correct, but little else. It offers several preconfigured audio modes that at medium or low volume are not bad, but as soon as it is raised a little more than necessary, it distorts. That if, it is compensated with its compatibility with Dolby Audio and DTS-HD.

In the connection section, Xiaomi’s 55-inch Mi TV P1 supports Bluetooth 5.0 and dual Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5 GHz) and has three HDMI connectors (one port with eARC), two USB 2.0, composite input (AV), CI slot, Ethernet, optical digital audio output and 3.5mm headphone jack.

The screen

We have left the central part of a TV for last: the screen, 4K UHD with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. Here we have had mixed feelings, so to speak. It should not be forgotten that it is a mid-range (and mid-priced) television and, therefore, cannot offer the experience of screens in much higher price ranges. Add to that that it is a 55-inch TV, and to reach this respectable size while containing the price, you have to cut somewhere (for example, from the materials that surround the screen).
All in all, the screen of the 55-inch Mi TV P1 is quite decent, even more so if you spend some time calibrating the settings , because the factory settings can definitely be improved. Once that is done, it must be said that the brightness sensorthat adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the ambient lighting has not convinced us too much (we have preferred, in specific situations, to select the saving mode and that’s it).
If what it is about is enjoying quality content (in theory it is compatible with HDR10 + ), better with the lights off or with very dim ambient light, because it offers a medium maximum brightness, but not outstanding (for premium brightness there is than, again, scratch your pocket more). In addition, a greater anti-reflective protection is missing that better avoids reflections on the screen.
Continuing with the drawbacks of the screen, its refresh rate does not exceed a meager 60 Hz, something that is noticeable in the reproduction of certain contents, especially video games. On the other hand, it processes moving images quite well, especially for a mid-range product, since it includes MEMC motion smoothing technology.

In summary

, the 55-inch Xiaomi Mi TV P1 is a good product that will cover the tastes and needs of users who want a reasonably priced but good-sized television, with decent image and sound, an adequate number of connectors and compatible with most common audio and video formats.
As is often the case with the Chinese brand, this television offers good value for moneyand it will be attractive for an average user but not so much for those who are looking for excellent image and sound, a screen with a better refresh rate and higher brightness. To achieve this, you have to spend much more than the 549 euros that, at the time of publication of this analysis, costs on the official Xiaomi website.
