But wait. Don’t be in hurry to grab one piece for yourself. There are some downside too. Its main disappointing part is that the instructions of operation are written in Chinese language only, and this will need some guesswork to use the gadget for those international users who look for English texts. Also, there is no option of using memory card, mounts or housings on it. The Xiaomi Yi Action Cam is not waterproof too.

Xiaomi showcased the tiny Yi action cam at Mobile World Congress earlier this year and it was welcomed by visitors with a surprise. However, the leap of the company isn’t surprising as apart from smartphone it has also produced related gadgets such as headphones and Mi Band fitness tracker.

In the Chinese market the product is made available for 399 yuan. One can buy it from retailers like GearBest.com. The gadget costs £65 in Europe and AU$120 in Australia when converted.

Critics compare the Yi cam with Monoprice MHD 2.0 and Polaroid Cube. This is something very good as both the cameras are high-end and popular.
