AliExpress Top Brands: TECHNOLOGY

In a not-so-distant future, brands like Xiaomi and Huawei were considered low-quality Made In China products. As time passed, they were able to break stereotypes and gain trust and popularity.

AliExpress has a ton of stores and brands: some good, some – not so much. In this post we decided to compile a list of up and coming Chinese brands that are less-known, but which definitely deserve recognition. We picked them and their products based on the feedback from the buyers.

Xiaomi is probably the best-known brand in China, except for Huawei. The quality of products is as good as any other big-name mainstream brands, but the prices are much lower than what you'd see in retail.

In this store you can find a variety of Xiaomi products like earphones, smartphones, MiBand fitness trackers and accessories for them, and other various home accessories.

If you have gadgets that require charging, this is the store for you.

FLOVEME is mostly known for power banks, high-quality charging cables and high-capacity fast-charge blocks (for homes and cars).

Go to BASEUS store for all things power: portable power banks, cables, QI charging docks and fastcharge blocks.

Good quality like FLOVEME, but different designs. Much better than going no-name.

Anker store sells everyday electronics, and they carry audio equipment and home projectors.

However, they are best-known for Bluetooth speakers, TWS earphones (Soundcore Liberty and Life P2 are their best-selling models) and QI wireless pads.


Samsung's AliExpress store specializes in memory cards and SSD‘s.

I have bought a number of high-speed SD cards for my 4K and 8K cameras, and a portable SSD.

QCY at this time is, without a doubt, a leader in True Wireless (TWS) earphones.

You can see their best-selling models here. There is just too many to name – make your pick. I would recommend looking at QS1 and T5 because of their specs.

If you are looking for a budget action camera and don't want to buy off-brand, SJCAM is your go-to store.

They have interlaced 4K cameras, some great waterproof ones that don't require a case (SJCAM SJ8 for example) and a full specter of accessories for them.

UGREEN is another well-known manufacturer of cables.

They also started producing SSD cases, USB hubs (this type-C USB 3.0 is the best-selling model), and charging blocks.

TOPK has a variety of different gadgets, but their best products are their smartphone holders.

They also sell some interesting type-C charger cables with LED displays, which show the strength of the voltage, and other heavy-duty cables.

Established in 2012, CHOETECH is one of the leading brands in manufacturing charger cables and charger cables.

For us, the most interesting Choetech's item is their dual-charging QI pad. If you are into camping/hiking, their portable solar charger panel is also worth noting.

MIJIA / Yee are also related to Xiaomi. Yee makes smart lights (I have one – review here) and smart home electronics, but they go much more beyond than that – there are too many products to list.

They all have one thing in common though: simplistic design and impeccable quality.

MI is definitely popular for smartphones, smart fitness bands and award-winning (Red Dot Award for design) earphones.


Rating 97.8%

YI is another Xiaomi's subdivision. It makes action cameras (I have a YI 4K – video review), dash cameras and webcams. All are well-rated by the buyers.

Bluedio is well-known for their high-quality audio products and solid warranty.

Their Bluetooth headphones, earphones and speakers are very worth the money. There is only a handful of models per category, which shows that you don't need to have a lot of options to be successful – just need a few current ones.

This is more of a niche product: FiiO makes audio accessories that help you get the most out of your music and music devices.

There are portable amps, lossless MP3 music players that make your music sound really good and $600 earphones (that people actually buy!).

ORICO has good card readers, USB 3.0 and 3.1 hubs and various electronics-related knick-knacks.

Blitzwolf makes a variety of different electronics. I have been using their power bank (video review) for 3 years now, I also trust them for charging cables – the braided ones I have have been nothing but great.

They recently started releasing TWS earphones, which I didn't have experience with – BW FYE7 and BW-FYE8 (different styles) have good sales and feedback.

VERNEE is a budget-friendly smartphone brand. Their most recent models M8 PRO comes with a Helio P60 and dual cameras, and V2 PRO is IP68 water and dust proof and comes with a huge 6200 mAh battery.

UMIDIGI is another budget smartphone brand that has been on fire lately. I am currently using their F1 model (video review) – it has been great: amazing battery life and a bone stock version of Android with no bloatware.

But if you are looking for a new phone, I highly recommend looking at the A7 Pro: WOW!

HUAWEI (authorized) STORE

173,000+ followers

HUAWEI is a brand that needs no introduction. Not to mention, that their phone towers are used in many countries, and their P30 PRO has won “Smartphone Of The Year” twice (which is a steal at $430 – or you can go with the PRO or Lite versions).

Aside from smartphones, they have smart watches and other stuff, which does not seem to be too popular.

Longet is one of the less-known smart watch brands, but it is getting there: the products are highly-rated and are still sold at a relatively low price point for their specs.


Rating 97.7%

You will definitely hear more about Tronsmart: their marketing team is being very aggressive. It started as a speaker brand, and now is venturing into the TWS earphones.

The best-selling speaker models right now is T6, which is also available as T6 Mini and T6 Plus.

MIFA is known for their graffiti-design speaker and the rugged outdoor-oriented IPX6 speaker, but they have a few other models. Ultimately, your preference in design will help to decide between Mifa and, say, Bluedio.

10 New Products from Xiaomi

Almost every day we get new gadgets from Xiaomi. I am very tempted to buy something new from this collection I am compiling right now 🙂 Everything here can already be ordered from AliExpress, or anywhere else really.

Happy Life R2

Price: $16.05

– Who is absent today, kids?

– The blades in this new personal fan, teacher!

Because the air intake happens with help of the hidden vents, and the fan itself is shaped as a circle.

This is what makes this fan so much safer, or at least so they say. It also has 3 speed modes and makes virtually no sound.


Mijia Oclean X

Price: $69

The main quirk and feature of this toothbrush is the display that shows the cleaning data like the pressure on the teeth and gums.

But wait, there is more: the brush gives advice on how to angle the head for a more thorough and effective cleaning. It can last for up to 20 days on a single charge, and has an IPX7 waterproof rating.

AreoX U8 Smart

Price: $71.27 – 79.37

All my bicyclist friends dream about a bike lock like that.

Just kidding, I don't have any friends. But I like this lock because it has a fingerprint reader and IP65 waterproof rating.

These features are not present even in a Lamborghini lock, catch my drift?

Mi Smart Band 4

Price: $32.99

Remember how it all started? A simple capsule-shaped fitness tracker with a couple indicators?

Now it has flowered into a strong and mature fitness bracelet. He features a full-color AMOLED display, 20 days of battery life, 380 watch face options and Bluetooth 5.0.

It can also be submerged as deep as 50 meters underwater, and can switch between music tracks on your smartphone.

They grow up so fast!

Qcooker Green

Price: $59.18

Xiaomi definitely knows a thing or two about household appliances.

Otherwise they wouldn't have invented this retro-styled kettle with a 1.7L capacity and an ability to boil water in under 5 minutes.

As expected, the insides are made out of stainless steel.

Yeelight Mosquito Killer

Price: $23.94

Yeelight mosquito killer coldblooded-ly destroys ‘skeeters  with a mild electric shock that is harmless to humans.

And in order to attract them it uses a UV light bat-signal.

It is so effective that you might need to join a witness protection program.

Dreame V9

Price: $289.84

This vacuum cleaner does not mess around.

It reaches full speed in 3 milliseconds and it does not understand the meaning of “hard-to-reach” places.

Among the features: 1-meter (3 feet) length, 1.5 kg (3.5 lbs.) weight, 3 operational modes, and the same number of brushes.

And no single-use dust bags: it has a built-in reusable dust collector that is really straightforward to empty and clean.

Most interesting Xiaomi products (2018) in this post

Mi Mini 10L Backpack

Price: $9.44

Xiaomi backpacks deserve a separate post.

But in the meantime, let's take a moment of our time to talk about our savior, Mi Mini 10L backpack.

It is space-efficient, waterproof, has a 10-liter capacity (I know, shocking!) and weighs only 165 grams (6 oz.).

And it comes in a multitude of colors!

Xiaomi table clock

Price: $15.15

The main feature is the 3.7″ E-ink (like in Kindle). Thanks to it, they require a minuscule amount of power to run, and are readable under any angle – unless you look at them from the back.

They also have a temperature and humidity meters. And the smiley face in the bottom right corner will change depending on how close they are to the recommended levels.

Mi LED Desk Lamp 1S

Price: $42

A smart desk lamp – but don't expect a genie, unfortunately (Will Smith is a busy man, after all).

However, its brightness is enough to lighten up the entire room – 1250Lm is no joke.

The built-in lens makes the light distribution even and pleasant to the eye. It has 4 brightness modes for convenience, and it can be controlled via a smartphone app.

Xiaomi Piston 3 earphones

piston 3 earphones

Third generation of the electronics giant’s hit in-ear headphones seem to have had a good start, having won the Red Dot award for design excellence. They come with a metallic back, and a plastic body. We get a spiral design where the tip points towards the ear, which was done to improve the comfort of the earphones. This rather unique design is implemented to largely improve sound quality in bass, mid and high sound ranges. In addition, this design improves the sound balance. A titanium-alloy diaphragm is stuck between two PET membranes. Several color options will let you pick one that is the most compatible with the color of your phone case or your underwear.

I5 Intel processor, 8 GB of RAM, 250 GB SSD, Full HD display, and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 940MX video card.

Xiaomi Products You Should Own: Best Of 2020

The Most Interesting Xiaomi Products

Xiaomi (pronounced as ‘ksee-a-o-mee‘) is a privately owned Chinese electronics company with headquarters in Beijing. Being the world's 4th biggest smartphone manufacturer it also develops and sells mobile apps, laptops, and other consumer electronics.

When it comes to the said other consumer electronics, the only thing that would probably come to mind is Bluetooth speakers. However, this is far from the reality, as Xiaomi also produces a wide variety of very different electronics.

The Most Interesting Xiaomi Products

According to IDC, in October 2014 Xiaomi was the 3rd biggest smartphone manufacturer in the world, but, interestingly, in 2014 Xiaomi took over Samsung in the Chinese market, becoming country's largest. So it might be just a matter of time until they move further up on the global scale.

So what other awesome products does Xiaomi make, except for this amazing transformer tablet (that we are happy to inform you has met the crowdfunding goal by 100%)?


As it turns out, a bunch of different things, all of which have one common trait: very high quality. I'm not over-hyping it a single bit: anyone who ever owned a Xiaomi product can attest to that.

In this article we have collected some of the best Xiaomi products.


1. Xiaomi Soocare X3 smart toothbrush

A Bluetooth toothbrush by Xiaomi is an interesting device. First, you need to pair the toothbrush with your smartphone via an app, and set it up. You can set the length of a session and add custom tasks, like brushing tongue or massaging gums.

Soocare X3 features a magnetic levitation acoustic wave motor. The frequency of its vibration can reach 37,200 times per minute. A pretty impressive built-in 1000 mAh lithium battery takes 16 hours to fully charge it, however, the brush can operate up to 25 days on a single charge provided you use it for 4 minutes each day.

2. Xiaomi smart kettle

Xiaomi kettle is made out of high-quality metal, and it also acts as a thermos – the water retains the warmth for up to 12 hours. You can also use it via the app, and set the time when it turns on. Which means you can always have the hot water available when you wake up. The future is here, you guys.

3. Xiaomi floral monitor

Another product that you probably didn't expect Xiaomi to have made, yet here it is.

The floral monitor samples the soil, and alerts you if something is needed. You can select the plant from the list, and it will tell you if the soil is suitable. It also alerts you when the plant needs to be watered.

4. Xiaomi electric mosquito repellent

This mosquito repellent is an interesting market to get into. But Xiaomi has repeatedly shown us it is not afraid of taking risks. The MIJIA Portable Mosquito Repeller lasts for up to 15 hours when plugged to Mi Power Bank Pro 10000mAh, and up to 28 hours when plugged to a 20000mAh one.

Its small size and weight make it very portable. But you still need one of those wacky pads that you can buy at stores.

5. Xiaomi Yeelight smart night light

Yeelight is a lot more than you would expect from a desk lamp.

You can pick your favorite out of 16,000,000 colors from the app that also controls the hue and brightness, or by tapping the top (which in its entirety is a touch panel). There are options to turn the light on or off at a set time, switch between 4 colors of your choice, and adjust the speed of pulsation, if you choose to enable it.

6. Xiaomi XiaoFang Wi-Fi IP camera

Xiaofang is a smart WiFi IP camera that features 1080P Full HD video, enhanced 9-meter night vision, and mobile sound detection. Xiaomi added innovative functions such as multiple camera linking and sharing, special special intruder alarms – it can start recording and notify you when there is movement. It can even detect a sound of a CO2 or of a fire alarm.

The camera has a magnetic base, which helps with mounting it to metallic surfaces. It can be used with a power bank, or it can be connected to a computer via USB.

7. Xiaomi Mi FPV 4K drone

Xiaomi drone comes with a 4K camera that can record in 30FPS.

For the $500 it is a very impressive machine with all the features that you would expect from a high end drone like DJI (against which it compares pretty well): low battery detection that automatically returns it to the takeoff spot, it can follow the predetermined route, or hover around objects on the map, and it has a real-time location tracking feature that can help retrieve in emergencies.

8. Xiaomi Huami Amazfit smart watch

This smart watch lets you take and make calls, view your text messages, it has a heart rate monitor, etc. etc. Just look at the pic below to get a better idea, because, you know: a picture tells a thousand words.

9. Xiaomi Mi Air Ultrabook

Most people would probably automatically dismiss ordering a laptop from AliExpress, which is totally understandable, but a bunch of Russians who did it have positive reviews, apart from a couple that had issues with the backlight bleed (for which $180 was refunded via dispute).

It has a 13.3″ full HD display, a 256Gb SSD, a 720p webcam, and it is thinner than its main apparent rival – Macbook Pro.

10. Xiaomi pen

It's just a pen. But you probably still wait it for some reason.
