Xiaomi MI3 vs JiaYu S1! Who will win?

At the end of this month, consumers, both international and not, decided to buy a new smartphone will have the opportunity to choose between the two best devices on the market in terms of value for money, Xiaomi MI3 and Jiayu S1. What is the best of the two? and above all you personally which one would you choose?

Note: watch the exclusive unboxing of GizChina.it of the JiaYu S1!

JiaYu S1

Jiayu S1 represents a big step forward for JiaYu, which could project the company onto the international scene. For its new flagship device JiaYu did not use a Mediatek processor but rather a high performance Snapdragon 600, to which are added well 2GB of RAM.

And the news is not just about the processor, the display is in fact an 5 inch Full-HD 1920 × 1080 (first JiaYu to mount a panel with this resolution ..), NFC technology, MHL, OTG, wireless charging and an attention to details in non-random construction.

JiaYu S1 - Price

JiaYu will only produce a version of its jewel with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. The launch price will be 310 $ (around 228 €) but it will almost certainly change, we don't know if however up or down ...


Compared to Xiaomi MI2S is a bargain! S1 is equipped with a larger screen and higher resolution, wireless charging with similar processor specifications, RAM and camera sensor.
In comparison to the MI3 how will it behave instead?

Xiaomi MI3

Xiaomi MI3 will be launched on October 15, initially in the Nvidia Tegra 4 version (compatible with the China Mobile 3G network) and then in the Snapdragon 800 version (compatible with most European 3G networks). Just like JiaYu S1 will have 5-inch Full-HD 1920 × 1080 display, 2GB of RAM, NFC and 13 mega-pixel rear camera.

Comparing the version with Snapdragon 800, we see that Xiaomi MI3 has a greater processing power with the Adreno 330 GPU and also a faster integrated memory.

We know that Xiaomi MI3 will not have wireless charging but has a higher amperage than the battery, 3050 mAh; a more mature and developed user interface, MIUI V5, with very interesting features including: cloud storage (through which you can manage your photos, videos, files ..) and "find my smartphone" function.

Xiaomi MI3 - Price

The 16GB version will cost 326 $ (about 240 €) while the one from 64GB 408 $ (about 300 €).

Xiaomi MI3 VS JiaYu S1

JiaYu did a great job with this new S1 and would surely sell by the thousands if only he had marketed it a few months ago ... unfortunately, however, MI3 offers much more at the same price.

It is not just a question of performance (which in any case is very important in these cases), with MI3 you have a battery with more durability, a larger internal memory (neither of which is equipped with an SD card expansion slot), an OTA update on a weekly basis , dedicated quality accessories at affordable prices ... the MIUI ROM then has a great following also at an international level.

Which of the two would you buy?

Both phones will be launched later this month but we will be very lucky if we can get them so soon. The big demand for these two models will cause a rather long wait (without considering the possible problems with the suppliers) so we will have a lot of time to decide which device to buy.

If you now have the opportunity to buy these smartphones now, which phone would you choose? Xiaomi MI3, JiaYu S1 or would you look around for a third-party manufacturer's phone?
