WHAT IS THE XIAOMI YI?
The Xiaomi Yi is a dashboard camera at an unbelievably low price. Costing less than £60, it’s incredibly cheap in its class, where alternatives such as the Garmin Dash Cam 35 or RAC 05 GPS are more than twice as much. So what’s missing from the Yi to make it so competitively priced, or is it just the Chinese manufacturing and branding?
If you’ve heard of Xiaomi before, it will almost certainly be for its amazing-value smartphones, such as the Mi4C. However, the company has also branched out into an action camera – which, confusingly, is also called the Yi – and now the dashboard camera on review here.
It’s available in two colours: grey or gold. I was sent the latter, but the former might be less likely to draw attention if you plan on leaving the camera in your car unattended. The body is a little plasticky, but the bundle overall doesn’t feel particularly cheap.
XIAOMI YI – BUNDLE AND WINDSCREEN MOUNTING
The Yi comes in a reasonably sturdy box, which certainly makes a decent first impression. Apart from the camera itself, which is approximately GoPro-sized, there’s a long USB cable you can route round your windscreen, a suction mount and a non-captured power adapter. The latter is a particularly pleasing addition since it offers two USB ports, so you can power the Yi and your sat-nav from it at the same time – assuming the latter also uses a non-captured car power cable.
