Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

Xiaomi is a huge smartphone maker in many parts of the world, but not in the US. When the company announced its Pocophone sub-brand, there was some hope it could come to American shores.

Xiaomi Mi A2 review: Two steps forward, one step back

Saturday, September 8th, 2018

Very few smartphone makers can eek out as much value from a device as Xiaomi. We often look at the company's line-up and wonder how small its margins must be if it can delivery such high specs at such low prices. This is especially true of the low-end and mid-range market, where others scramble to offer minimum usable specs and Xiaomi's devices are impressively better.

But for the longest time, recommending Xiaomi's products outside of its foothold markets of China, India, and South East Asia, had been difficult.

Pocophone F1 lacks support for Widevine L1, HD playback in Netflix and other apps don’t work

Thursday, August 30th, 2018

Xiaomi's Pocophone F1 has already made waves in the smartphone industry for being incredibly affordable; a ~$300 phone with a Snapdragon 845 processor is virtually unheard of. Budget phones are inherently going to have some tradeoffs, and a less-obvious one has been discovered: lack of support for Widevine L1 DRM.

Android supports a wide range of DRM modules, including ClearKey, Widevine, Microsoft Playready, and others. Widevine is by far the most popular method, and there are multiple levels; L1 means a device has full Widevine support, while L3 means only partial compatibility.
