Media streaming devices is the fastly growing industry, so many of the big companies make the streaming devices. These are boxes like the Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, and Nexus Player which allow users to stream content from the Internet or smartphones directly to their TVs.


Difference is done on the basis some parameters written below


Here’s the specs for the Xiaomi Mi Box Mini: Output: HDMI, Processor: MediaTek Cortex-A7 quad-core 1.3GHz, RAM: 1GB , Storage: 4GB flash, Max. Output Video Resolution: 1080p 3D video output, Dimensions: not specified yet, but it’s a cube with each side measuring about the height of a credit card, Weight: unknown,Connectivity: Dual-band (2.5GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0.

And here’s the specs for the Chromecast:Output: HDMI,Processor: Marvell 88DE3005 (Armada 1500-mini) system on a chip,RAM: 512MB , Storage: 2GB flash,Max. Output Video Resolution: 1080p,Dimensions: 72(L) x 35(W) x 12(H) mm, Weight: 34 g, Connectivity: 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Power: USB (Power adapter included). No dought in specs Mi Box Mini is wining the competition.


The most immediate difference between the two devices is their form factor. While both are small, the two are radically different in shape. The Chromecast is in the form of a stick, while the Mi Box Mini is cube-shaped and not much bigger than the power charger for your phone. But thing is that Mi Box Mini is bigger than the Chromecast. Google Chromecast plugs directly into your TV’s HDMI port, which would be as cool as it sounds if it didn’t also require you to plug it into an microUSB external power supply as well. In this section Google Chromecast is winner as it is a small usb flash drive like device which can be easily portable in your pocket.


Google Chromecast and Xiaomi Mi Box Mini both lets you stream the content to your TVs. But Mi Box Mini has its own UI through which people can navigate to channels whereas chromecast uses the UI of the apps and services. Because the Chromecast doesn’t have its own menu doesn’t mean there’s not a lot of content for it. Thanks to Chromecast support from apps like BBC iPlayer, HBO Go, Hulu Plus,Netflix, Pandora, Vevo, YouTube, blinkbox Music and Moves, BT Sport, Now TV, NPR, DailyBur,etc  The Mi Box Mini on the other hand does also let you cast content to it from your devices, but it also features an on-screen menu like more traditional digital media players have. This built-in interface sports simple textual menus that expand to showcase the posters of any of the films or TV shows you’re browsing.

Both the devices support gaming but the Mi Box Mini haves the inbuilt capability. In this section for now it is again Mi box Mini wins with its features.
