Mi Beard Trimmer Review 2019

Reasons why everyone should switch to all-new Mi beard trimmer! After launching a new backpack and sunglasses within the past couple of months, Xiaomi is firmly expanding its collection of lifestyle goods in India following the company's launch with the Mi Beard Trimmer.

I extremely suggest this trimmer for frequent travelers and office persons who need a quick shave within 20 mins.


Mi Beard Trimmer seems to be a genuine choice for men with the price point it launched. Unfortunately, the Mi Beard trimmer comes with only one color variant which is black.

Men assume that only a razor can give a clean shave which is a myth. A trimmer acts gently on your skin, unlike a razor and gives you perfect clean look that razor does now a days.

Whereas Mi Beard Trimmer enables you to manually set the length of your facial hair.

Whereas a razor would only give a clean shave and there are no possibilities of shaving the stubble facial hair off. Though, Mi Beard trimmer comes with flexible blades which support you to adopt a distinctive style of beard every time you groom.

The Mi Beard Trimmer can work up to 90 minutes on a full charge and 10 minutes on a 5-minute charge. It features a travel lock mode and supports cordless and corded method with most power banks including Mi Power Bank or USB adapter. Its handy design indicates that one can undoubtedly make it a part of a toiletry kit.

The Mi beard trimmer is IPX7 certified. Designed and built with a waterproof body, the trimmer has two combs beside 20 settings dial, giving it a total of 40-length settings which are fit for any type of beard style. The blades are built of stainless steel which comes with a ‘self-sharpening design’ with an accuracy of 0.5mm which is whatsoever first of its kind.

Mi Beard Trimmer is a resolution to a variety of grooming challenges which is equipped with self-sharpening blades a long-lasting battery accompanying with an IPX7 waterproof body

With the IPX7 certification cleaning it under a tap won’t be an issue for if it is immersed in water for up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. With Xiaomi quad-edge design it makes the user have a firm grip on the trimmer.


The Mi Beard Trimmer comes with a travel pouch, USB charging cord, 2 good quality plastic combs, a cleaning brush, and user manual.

Taking the entire shaving kit would use quite some area in your bag as compared to this robust trimmer which can easily fit in a corner. This trimmer gives a powerful, yet ultra silent motor, ergonomic design and comb tips for the most excellent performance.

For battery indication, it provides 3 led light indicators.

For changing the comb you need to bring the dial on its maximum dial setting and easily pull it for taking it off.

The Mi Beard Trimmer doesn't make loud noise compared to other trimmers.

The blades are a bit sharp creating some troublesome irritation for people who have sensitive skin.

It gives a uniform shave without even cleaning the blades of the trimmer making its performance and quicker. It is essential for taking out combs of this trimmer for getting rid of the hairs stuck within it.

If you are in a hurry and need a shave even after the charging is depleted you don't have to worry as you can connect it to a power bank and use it while charging.
