Hello MIUIers,

Every day, I believe that most of us here are connected to the internet. Ranging from work-related, social media to our basic communication, like messaging or voice call. Internet and people are now hardly separated.

Most of today's phones are equipped with features which allow us to connect with the internet. Two of most used features are Mobile Data and Wi-Fi. Did you know the pros and cons on each?

mobile data or wifi.png

Mobile data connection is an inbuilt feature of a smartphone which means that it does not require an additional device or peripheral to connect to the internet. We can surf the internet anytime anywhere. All we need to do is to insert a SIM card which has the internet connection. Usually, it is the same SIM card that we use for our personal contact number.

Because most current phones can only be equipped with two SIM cards at a time, changing to other networks may become a problem when we have a network issue on one of the providers. This can be more serious when we have not prepared for it.

Another drawback is because of its convenience, there is high possibility that a lot of people are also using it at the same time. This can be a problem if the network provider's bandwidth is reaching its limit. When this happens, there is nothing much we can do except waiting (and hoping) that the provider will go to solve it as soon as possible.

What about Wi-Fi connection? Wi-Fi connection is able to provide better network connection because it uses different "route" than the regular mobile data network. It also provides better user experience when facing network issue because a user can easily change to another network that is currently reachable by just like select another option. In some places, like restaurant, etc., Wi-Fi connection is provided for free as part of the services, so we can save a bit of our costs on the internet.

But, Wi-Fi connection also has drawbacks. This feature has very limited network coverage. You can not just turn on your Wi-Fi toggle to ON any place then you will get the internet. Even if you are at home, you may need to a Wi-Fi subscription with the internet provider.


Is there any way to use Wi-Fi to make it mobile? Yes, it is. We can use a MiFi or mini wifi device to establish a wifi connection anywhere. It just like a mobile data connection but with external or additional SIM card. Some MiFi devices also can be used as a power bank.

So, we would like to hear from you:

Which internet connection is your phone more connected to? Data or Wi-Fi?
