On the other hand, Xiaomi’s smart TV also comes with the Android operating system and is topped with the layer of company’s own PatchWall UI layer. The company has not announced anything about the OS update later on.
VU TV comes with two remotes where one remote is regular, while the other remote is a smart remote. The Mi TV comes with only one smart remote. The intelligent remote on the VU TV provides you the feature of voice search, but MI TV remote has no such function yet.
VU Android smart TV comes a 43-inch A-grade IPS LED display with 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution. Whereas, the Mi 43-inch LED TV has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The VU offers crisper and defined pictures. But the Mi takes the points with its bezel-less display and frameless design. That provides a better user experience in this price segment in comparison to VUs. Talking about the refresh rate and contrast ratio both have the same refresh rate of 60Hz and contrast ratio of 6000:1.
Talking about the RAM and internal storage, the VU Android 4K UHD LED TVs provides you the 2.5GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. Whereas, the Xiaomi Mi LED Smart TV 4 43-inch model comes with the 1 GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage. Here, the VU smart TV is much better when it comes to multitasking or playing heavy graphics intensive games.
The VU smart TV offers WiFi, Bluetooth, 3 HDMI, 2 USB and Ethernet Port. Whereas, the Mi LED Smart 4 TV has dual-band Wi-Fi (802.11ac), 3 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports and one Ethernet port. But sadly there is no Bluetooth option in Mi 43-inch TV, so you can’t add Bluetooth accessories to your MI 43-inch smart TV. But you do get Bluetooth 4.0 BLE in MI LED TV 4 55-inch variant.
The VU Smart TV supports Google Play Store and apps like YouTube, Netflix, HotStar, and others. Along with this, it provides the feature of downloading any other game or app the user wants. You can also do same with the Mi TV as well. But sometimes the streaming lags when other apps are running in the background.
The Vu Android 4K UHD LED TV comes in three different screen sizes — 43-inch, 49-inch, and 55-inch. On the other hand, MI Smart TV is available in 32-inch, 43-inch, and 55-inch screen size. So don’t be confused, here we are comparing only the 43-inch model of both, VU and Xiaomi. Both the smart TV has inbuilt stereo speakers that produce the max of 20-watt stereo sound.
Talking about the prices, MI TV is much cheaper than the VU TV. The MI 43 inch TV will cost a little more than Rs 20000, and the VU one will cost you a little less than Rs 40000. So there is a difference of around Rs 15000, and that is where the game changes.
Now the question which arises is that which one you should go for if you are not concerned about the price? definitely the VU one. It has 4K IPS panels supported by Android 7.0 Smart OS mark themselves out as a better option. But at the VU 43-inch smart TV price you can get 55-inch Xiaomi Mi smart TV which is the far better option than the VU one here.
However, if you are looking for a much cheaper deal, then the MI Smart TV is a better option to go with. But here is a problem, MI TV comes in flash sales, which does not go well for most of the customers. So even if you have your funds ready, chances are that you won’t get the product. But this is not the case with the VU smart TVs. In fact, if you would not mind spending a little more then the VU is available on both online and offline channels.
