UPDATE: 2021/02/19 5:12 P.M. GMT+8 BY NICOLE BATAC
We wanted to update this story to link to the official Shopee store of the new Xiaomi Philippines online store, and update links to some of the items that are available on Shopee, too.
Xiaomi is known for its value-for-money smartphones, but you may or may not know that it offers a lot more than mobile devices. It also makes enough products to turn your home into a smart one—even if some of them might not even need the smart label if we’re honest. But if you want that, it’s easy to get them online.
Xiaomi Philippines has an official Lazada page, and we found its official global store on Shopee. But those have limited items beyond Xiaomi’s smartphones and wearables. Thankfully, the brand now has its official online store over at mistoreph.com, where many of its lifestyle products are available. If you don’t want to step out of the house to get a Xiaomi product, it’s now even easier to get what you want.
We couldn’t resist compiling some of our favorite items and those we’re intrigued by into this list. Some of these are available on Lazada and Shopee, too, so we’ve added the links when applicable.
