The new Xiaomi HyperOS still has some nuances that no one has talked about yet.
Xiaomi uses a little trick in its new top smartphones to increase usable data storage for the user. Xiaomi announced at its event that anyone who buys their new Xiaomi 14 with 256 GB will actually be able to use more memory.
The phone’s integrated data storage is actually larger than advertised. A 256 GB module can easily have a capacity of 266 GB. However, “extra” memory is reserved for important functions, for example for “garbage collection” or “wear leveling”.
xiaomi is However, we believe that the reserved memory is too large for these functions and therefore releasing it partially for the user If you buy a Xiaomi 14 Pro with 256 GB, you will actually be able to use around 265 GB. It should work without sacrificing reliability and performance.
Of course, storage also increases if you order the 512 GB model. Then there will be 528 GB of memory that will be usable, so 16 GB more. Xiaomi can accomplish this because the new HyperOS is already adapted accordingly to the core.
I am interested to see if Xiaomi can do this with its budget devices (Redmi, POCO). It can be offered more effectively in sales and advertising.
