Seemingly the same, but different everywhere: Xiaomi 14 first evaluation

On October 26th, Xiaomi officially released Xiaomi 14 series, which brought two heavy models, Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro. Each digital series is the key model of Xiaomi, especially its standard version, which is almost a big exporter. Because the previous generation of Xiaomi 13 was too hot, the subsequent models must not be worse than the previous generation. This pressure is also given to the manufacturers. Can Xiaomi 14 series continue its glory? We are also the first to get started, so let’s take a look with our perspective.

Clever design, more concise body

To tell the truth, at first glance, Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 13 almost maintain the same appearance, giving people a feeling that there seems to be no change. Of course, the previous generation of Xiaomi 13 is really very popular and almost praised by the majority of users, but the changes brought by Xiaomi 14 are more internal.

First of all, the screen, Xiaomi 14 has been upgraded from the previous 1080P to 1.5K, and the resolution has reached 1200*2670. Of course, the size remains unchanged, and it is still 6.36 inches, but it supports 14bit, LTPO and 120hz. At the same time, it is still full-range DC dimming, and the screen material is changed to Huaxing Optoelectronics C8, and the border is still very narrow. In addition, Xiaomi 14 also supports multi-screen homochromatic technology, and the entire top is

The middle frame is the highlight of this Xiaomi 14. There is no opening at the top, and the bottom layout is the same as Xiaomi 13, but the speaker opening at the bottom is bigger. USB-typec supports USB3.2 5GB specification, and the right side is familiar with the volume and power button, and there is no opening at the top. Many people think that the infrared remote control is gone, but it is not.

Coming to the back of the huge camera module also shows that Xiaomi 14 has stronger image strength than Xiaomi 13, and it is precisely the design of the camera module that is ingenious. It is reasonable to say that the camera module will definitely occupy the top space if it is too large, but Xiaomi 14 has integrated the infrared remote control into the camera module, and still integrated the infrared focus sensor and rear photosensitive. In addition, Xiaomi 14 has four microphones like Xiaomi 14 Pro, but different from Pro, they are at the top earpiece position, the rear lens cover, the bottom microphone and the bottom earpiece.

In terms of color matching, the only plain leather is reserved for pink, and the rest is rock blue, black and white, in which black is velvet AG technology, white is PVD physical and meteorological deposition, and rock blue is the same color modulation color. Xiaomi 14 fully supports IP68 dustproof and waterproof, and Xiaomi 14 also complements the barometer.

The standard model also ushered in a big image upgrade, Leica SUMMILUX lens

On the whole, the camera specifications of Xiaomi 14 are the same as those of Pro, even better than those of the previous generation Xiaomi 13 Pro, and it also has three shots and four focal lengths. Slightly different from Pro, the maximum aperture of the main camera is f1.6, which does not support infinite variable aperture, and the video of the floating telephoto lens is 32MP, while Pro is 40MP, which does not support 5cm macro in super wide angle, so its final camera parameters are.

The whole system is equipped with the light and shadow hunter 900 outsole sensor main camera, with the specification of 1/1.3 inch, 50MP pixels, 1.2μm/2.4μm fused large pixels, and all-pixel omnidirectional phase focusing 2*2 OCL, 7P lens, double native ISO and f1.6 aperture.

Supplemented by ultra-wide angle JN1 sensor, it has 115 ultra-wide angle, f2.2 aperture and 6P lens.

Floating telephoto JN1 sensor, with 3.2X optical change and 10cm close-up, f2.0 aperture, 6P lens and OIS optical image stabilization.

The three lenses correspond to 14mm wide angle, 23mm main shot, 46mm (virtual main shot) and 75mm telephoto respectively.

Generally speaking, compared with Xiaomi 13, Xiaomi 14′ s camera specifications have been fully upgraded, which is slightly weaker than Xiaomi 14 Pro, mainly because there is no variable aperture. By default, we all use Leica classics to take pictures, and Xiaomi 14 belongs to the Leica style. However, if we have to say to what extent Xiaomi 14′ s current camera is in a series of Leica, it is almost equal to the previous generation Xiaomi 13 Pro at this stage.

Telephoto angle of view

At the telephoto angle, 75mm, 117mm and 234mm respectively correspond to the camera preset 3.2X5X10X, which is completely visible, so it should be more than enough to poke most scenes.

However, compared with the previous generation of Xiaomi 13 and even Xiaomi 13 Pro, its video function has been improved as never before. Specifically, Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro both support 4K 60-frame video recording in front and back, and also support directional radio with four microphones. This is a function that Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro do not have, and it also supports UltraRAW and RAW formats in direct output.

Snapdragon 8 Gen3 is fully upgraded.

Xiaomi 14 is equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen3, and this time it is also launched by Xiaomi 14 in the world. This SOC is based on TSMC’s 4nm process, with 1*X4 3.3GHz supercore+3 * A720 3.15 GHz+2 * A720 2.96 GHz+2 * A520 2.27 GHz, supplemented by Adreno 750 GPU, which supports unreal engine 5 optical tracking, X75 baseband and WiFi7.

Theoretically, Xiaomi 14 has reached 2 million, and the sequential reading and writing speed of flash memory has reached 3.8GB/S, which tends to approach 4GB/S, while the writing speed in 4K random reading and writing is slow.

Xiaomi 14 "The Original God" is rendered with high quality +60 frames and 720P, with an average frame rate of 60 frames, a maximum temperature of 41.36℃ and a fluency of 97.5.

At the same time, you can also start high-quality in the game toolbox, and you can also run the point-to-point physical rendering of "The Original God" with 2K 30 frames, and the fineness has also been greatly improved.

The whole series of Xiaomi 14 adopts an annular liquid-cooled pump to dissipate heat. Xiaomi 14 is also measured to have a maximum temperature of 50.8 on the front and 51.5 on the back under the extreme heating and temperature control of half an hour, which is not much different from Xiaomi 14 Pro.

In terms of charging, Xiaomi 14 is equipped with a 4610mAh battery, adopting a single cell scheme, which is a single P2 fast charging chip +G1 battery management chip, supporting 90W fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging. It takes 26 minutes and 37 seconds to actually charge 26%-100%.

New Hyper OS

Previously, the online beta version was leaked, but the online exposure was not the final version. The brand-new Hyper OS linear animation was greatly changed, and the fluency was not what it was exposed online. The actual use was smooth and visible to the naked eye, although the function was roughly the same.

In terms of privacy, Xiaomi 14 is also equipped with an independent security chip, which can save sensitive information such as screen lock password and application lock outside the SoC to prevent malicious access. The security level is CCRC EAL6+.

When you enter the settings page, you can see the interconnection function, which is also the focus of the new Hyper OS, such as application relay, desktop pasting, notification, and telephone collaborative network collaboration. It can be said that the ecological integration between devices makes it more comprehensive. However, we have noticed the ecological integration of "car interconnection", which is also the last link of "car" for people and cars.

Xiaomi’s car-machine interconnection is called Carwith. Xiaomi is one of the initiators of the iccoa car-machine interconnection alliance. Three years ago, Carwith supported only a few cars, but at present, there are as many as four pages of vehicles on the brand-new Hyper OS. However, when I got the mobile phone, it was a beta system, and the car-machine interconnection settings page also contained the connection method of Carlife. After updating the 1.0.6.0 system, the connection mode of Carlife was removed, and I really didn’t understand the update logic. In addition, many vehicles shown above don’t support iccoa connection mode, but Carlife. I wonder if other connection modes will be added in the subsequent update of Hyper OS, or will it be a closed car-machine interconnection of our own cars?

Summary:

On the whole, Xiaomi 14 Pro is more like the focus of this upgrade than Xiaomi 14 Pro, but Xiaomi 14 is undoubtedly a comprehensive upgrade compared with Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro. For users who like the small screen flagship, Xiaomi 14 is fully equipped. At present, there are almost no shortcomings. Whether it is SUMMILUX lens, Snapdragon 8Gen3 or the comprehensive upgrade of the screen, it is still full of sincerity.
