Neither Xiao mi or Dji, both of them are come from China, In recent days, Xiaomi unveils its drones:4k and 1080p. As we know Xiaomi is a famous smart Mobile phone manufacturer in China, but DJI is the largest UAV company in the world, now let me have a Depth comparison about Xiaomi 4k and DJI Phantom 4.


Aircraft

Here is DJI Phantom 4

Max Descent Speed        4 m/s (Sport mode)

+/- 0.1 m (when Vision Positioning is active) or +/-0.5 m
Horizontal:
+/- 0.3 m (when Vision Positioning is active) or +/-1.5 m
Diagonal Size (Excluding Propellers)        350 mm


This is Xiaomi Mi Drone 4K
Weight (including battery and propellers)        1387g
Max Ascent Speed        6 m/s (Sport mode)
Max Descent Speed        1.5 m/s (Sport mode)

GPS Mode        GPS / GLONASS
Diagonal Size (Excluding Propellers)        434 mm

Accounding this list, both of them are simliar in general, but DJI Phantom 4’s Max descent speed and mas service ceiling above sea leavel are batter than Xiaomi 4K,  From another way, we can see DJI Phantom 4 used 5350mah 4s lipo battery, and Xiaomi is 5000mah 3s lipo battery,too.
Camera
Sensor        1/2.3” (CMOS), Effective pixels:12.4 M
Lens        FOV 94° 20 mm (35 mm format equivalent) f/2.8, focus at ∞
ISO Range
100-3200 (video)
100-1600 (photo)
Shutter Speed        8s -1/8000s
Image Max Size        4000×3000

Maybe DJI Phantom 4 is batter than Xiaomi 4K, but on another way, xiaomi 4K’s price is lower than DJI Phantom 4, and Xiaomi is a newbie in Drones, it has a lot of loyal customers and  Xiaomi will have a great development. Xiaomi’s main markert is in China, but DJI is in the world. So I believe Xiaomi drones will get a huge market in China.
