This week we review the Xiaomi Mi3. Xiaomi is a Chinese phone manufacturer, and the third largest mobile device manufacturer in the world behind Apple and Samsung. Xiaomi has been widely criticized for copying the Apple iOS user experience, and design aesthetic. While we liked the look and feel of the device, the video playback capabilities left something to be desired. Adaptive Bitrate video was inconsistent, as were critical features like Closed Captions. For all the details on this device, as well as recommended encoding parameters, check out the video below.
