SAMSUNG GALAXY FIT vs. MI BAND 5 (Side by Side Testing)

FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: (@mikeobrienn)
So which is the better smart band? The Mi Band 5 is cheaper and has some big new improvements over the Mi Band 4, but the Galaxy Fit came down in price and received some significant updates! This comparison is far more interesting than last year’s comparison.

    Mike said the miBand is more accurate, more comfortable , has a larger/brighter screen, more sensors, and less expensive BUT “if your not on such a tight budget” then get the inferior product that “gets some subtle things right”.

    Best hardware completely useless: Chinese sleep only between 22 and 8,
    so there is NO sleep recording outside this time-window. Bad joke! All watches equal.
    Die Apps sind alle Scheiße: Chinesen dürfen scheinbar nur zwischen 22Uhr
    und 8 Uhr schlafen. Dazwischen findet keine Schlaf-Tracking statt.
    Als ob ich mir nicht mittlerweile das zweite Smart Band gekauft hätte, und
    auch das verfluchte Android-Phone dazu, nur um das Phänomen
    unerwünschter Nachmittagsmüdigkeit unter Kontrolle zu kriegen. Um diese
    Tageszeit keine Schlafaufzeichnung… Ein Witz!! der mich schon viel
    Geld und unendliche Rumärgerei gekostet hat.
    Die Dinger sind hardware
    – technisch eigentlich super, arbeiten aber alle nur mit Varianten
    derselben unterbelichteten App, die grundsätzlich nicht auf PC läuft,
    nebenbei bemerkt, auch nicht mit virtuellem Betriebssystem (kein
    Hardwarezugriff), egal, wie teuer und welche Marke. Über andere Belege
    würde ich mich freuen, habe keine Hinweise gefunden. Ein echter Fall
    für eine faules Ei nach China. Eigentlich mag ich ja die Chinesen, aber
    da muß mal irgendeine Qualitätsbehörde den Finger drauf legen.

    about the lack of physical bottom, you can easily wipe your sweaty hand on your clothes. About the lack of changing the song while on a workout, yeah you cant on the mi band, but at least in my case. I put on my workout playlist and thats it.

    wtf… this review is so fucking dumb. not only did the reviewer not look at the extra settings such as (music control) he also said that the sleep tracker needs the s2op. rofl, next review

    One thing Mi Band 5 is better is that it has a lot of 3rd party apps. There is a hack tool / app on Play Store that can make your Mi Band do so many more extra things, and make it mirror your phone screen, etc. It suddenly makes your Mi Band 5 10x more feature rich and useful.
