These are the best Xiaomi phones

Xiaomi makes some of the best cheap Android phones, and its products are more accessible than ever. With so many devices across various price points, you're guaranteed to find one that fits your budget. If you're in the market for maximum value, the Poco F5 Pro is the obvious pick. Sitting just under $500, the phone has a premium 6.67-inch AMOLED display, a blazing-fast 120Hz screen refresh rate, and a decent 5,160mAh battery that should easily last two days on a full charge. 

Speaking of value, if you want that along with flagship specs, then the Xiaomi 13T Pro fits that bill nicely. Compact phones are a bit of a rarity these days, but the Xiaomi 14 is an exception. While not as petite as a Galaxy S24 or a Zenfone 10, it certianly has better camera chops than those two. 

If you don't want to settle for anything but the best, the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is among the best Android phones today. The triple 50MP rear cameras are the real show-stoppers, and can give the best Samsung and Pixe phones a run for their money.

Bear in mind that although Xiaomi's phones are spectacular and give phenomenal value for money, they don't get regular OS updates, which may be a dealbreaker for many. Also, none of the Chinese phone manufacturer's phones are compatible with CDMA networks, which is problematic for users residing in the US. Do your research before jumping the gun!
