Xiaomi has yet to gain weight, and the Xiaomi 14 is no exception.
Smartphone weight is now an issue again, as devices pack more and more technology. And something will happen again with the upcoming Xiaomi 14, Insider Reported Weight gain compared to Xiaomi 13. It has a disadvantage compared to other devices.
The Xiaomi 14 is said to weigh 194 grams. That puts it above the Pixel 8, which is no lighter at 187 grams. But the gap to the nearest competitor is particularly large, as the current Galaxy S23 weighs only 168 grams and is a real lightweight in comparison.
On the one hand, a high weight certainly brings a high-quality feel in the hand, but there’s almost a fluid limit before such a device feels uncomfortably heavy in the hand. In any case, I’m curious to see if Xiaomi has to pick up the weight again.
