Xgimi MoGo Pro vs Xiaomi Mi smart compact projector

Xiaomi Mi •FR amzn.to/337XFJT •ES amzn.to/3nqnqi2 •US amzn.to/3lFgmfu
🠗 🠗 🠗 Main conclusions and findings in this description 🠗 🠗 🠗
- Both versatile Full HD mini projectors with excellent dual band wifi connectivity running on Android TV 9 with LED light source.
- Both devices come equipped with internal Chromecast for easy casting from both Android and iPhone's.
- Both devices come equipped with auto vertical keystone and auto focus making set up pretty easy.
- Xiaomi Mi is much brighter, sharper, less noisy, has a better speaker and got official Netflix support.
- Only MoGo Pro has horizontal keystoning (40°), 3D support and a battery.
- MoGo Pro doesn't have official Netflix support. But it can be installed via XTV manager which pretty much works just as well, except that you must use the projector remote. Only on the Xiaomi Mi you can cast Netflix from the Netflix app on your phone.
- MoGo Pro has a faster processor resulting in faster loading times.
- Xiaomi Mi needs a little refocus after 15-45min when it has a 'cold start'.
- Xiaomi Mi has occasional audio hiccups if sound is sent through HDMI input to projector speaker.
- Bluetooth headset works best with MoGo Pro. Xiaomi Mi has some delay.
- MoGo Pro must be logged in to Google, Xiaomi Mi works without logging in.
- Xiaomi Mi needs a little refocus after 15-45min when it has a 'cold start' in colder climates. After which it will stay in focus.
This can be circumvented in four ways:
1) Start the projector beforehand to warm up a bit and trigger autofocus before watching.
2) While watching series, accept some blurriness at the end of the first episode and trigger autofocus before going to the next.
3) Trigger autofocus immediately after startup and add between +3 and +5 correction steps to the right. This way clarity will gradually go from good to excellent.
4) Turn off autofocus altogether and don't move the projector.
- Tripod and case accessories are not included.
- Both projectors suffer from a little bit of judder in 24Hz and 25Hz modes.
- Video is filmed in 30fps. 'Spring'-video clips are 24fps. High framerate recordings of the judder clips can be found in the link below.
- Default settings are used unless otherwise noted.
- In reality the viewability of the bright daylight recordings was a bit better in real life. But we've chosen camera settings optimized to show the difference between these projectors in the clearest way.

***Software update september 12 2020***
After updating the Xiaomi Mi to the latest firmware version various issue's previously mentioned have been addressed.
-Bluetooth lag has significantly improved towards usable levels.
-Sound hiccups from audio over HDMI input largely solved.
-Improved fluid playback/judder.

Which projector should I buy?
For best picture quality, brightness and sound (if internally streamed), go for the Xiaomi Mi smart compact projector. If you are looking for: 100% wireless projection (battery), horizontal keystone for sideway projection, 3D, decent Bluetooth headset support or if you are sensitive to judder, then take a look at the Xgimi MoGo Pro.

    This thing is not bad (xiaomi Mi smart), it just dont accepts my US sticks, it never shows any content on my USB Sticks, i see nothing when i stick it in. Only the option to format or eject but with format option it will delete the files and my windows PC dont recognize it anymore, really bad from xiaomi. The rest is not bad. Nother negative thing is there is no shortcut for autofocus, thats a shame

  • Al Truthsayer

    I have the Mogo Pro and am not really impressed with the image. I'm surprised how bad the screen door is for a 1080p device. I haven't yet tried plugging in a PC but it seems there are jagged edges on lines that can't really be fixed at any resolution (HDMI input seems worse than the Android built in image-wise). This is with sharpness down to zero. The software update (latest) is improved on the original but still not good. 4K youtube look quite low res still.....very strange if it really is showing all 1080p pixels. There is no rainbow effect which is good (compared to something like the wowoto h8) but the image seems a lot better on the 720p wowoto and no screen door is visible.

    Kinda odd because why are you placing a light in the middle of the viewing comparison since it will easily affect the overall performance since they are basically a projector. On the earlier part you didnt even cover the door on the left and the window on the right. It must always be in a dimlit envuronment. Aside from the its a good comparison.

    Xiaomi is the clear winner here. The video is better and brighter. The sound on the Xgimi is awful. I have the Xiaomi Youth smart compact projector and think it's very nice for the price. I have the Chinese version-$150 USD cheaper-but just plug in a Xiaomi TV Stick ($30) and I can watch anything I want.

    Mooie review! Ik overweeg de Xiaomi te kopen voor mijn vriendin. Ze is kunstenares en zou deze goed kunnen gebruiken om digitaal werk vanaf een iPad op een doek te projecteren om deze zo over te trekken. Is deze hier geschikt voor wat betreft details, aansluiting op een iPad Pro en gebruik in een atelier met gedempt daglicht? (Ramen met lichte gordijnen ervoor met genoeg licht om te kunnen tekenen).

    The picture quality Xiaomi is better than Mogo pro but Mogo pro is easy to carry everywhere you want because there is battery built in and can adjust keystone +-40 degree vertical and horizontal. Xiaomi can only adjust vertical. Finally depend on your decision to choose it. Thanks for your review.

    Found the information myself at: www.mi.com/de/mi-smart-compact-projector/specs/ The Xioami HASN'T horizontal Keystone Correction. Might be important for one or another. It means, you always have to place the beamer directly in front of the wall. Never at the side, wich is much more comfortable in many "not-professional-cinema-rooms".

    Ok so i just returned my Xiaomi Smart Projector. In total its pretty nice, the picture plus 4k is awesome and the sound is also not bad. Surround sounds good. But i didnt like the brightness at some movies, even tho at some other movies it was very good. Guess it's about what movie you watch. In the end i returned it because theres no digital zoom and i couldnt put it beside the wall. It has to be straight in front. Thats why I returned. But if you have a straight wall and 2,5m then you can have a very nice projector at 100". Now i ordered the Anker Nebula Cosmos which has digital zoom. Let's see about that one.

As i don't have a lot of headspace 1,35m approx i wanted to pose it on the floor and incline it a slightly for good projection. My possible wall to projector distance is 3 meters. Can you please tell me if this enough distance for an optimal image or might it appear too small?
