Greetings MIUI'ers,Welcome to the 44th edition of the MIUI Weekly Poll. Last week we discussed about "Which One Do U Care Most When Buying A New Phone?". Here are the results:

Result.PNG

Some of the best replies:
  • Nowadays, I'd care a lot about the battery size, seeing as these days, component prices have dropped low enough to give a good enough processing package paired with a huge battery (the Redmi 4X is a great example of this)

  • Single vote isn't enough, because the choice of a smartphone depends on many factors, in my case display+memory+innovation+wow effect.... that's why I've chosen the Mi Mix some months ago and I'm happy about my choice :-)
    Voted for display

  • The best is Pricing. Xiaomi delivers quality products at most affordable price. No competitors match Xiaomi if one goes with price vs specifications.




This week let us discuss about Heart Rate sensor on smartphone...

Back in 2014. three years ago Samsung incorporated a heart rate sensor in its flagship device Galaxy S5 and became the first phone company to gift its users such an essential health monitor. But today its a matter of chance to find a HR sensor over any other OEM smartphones.

Heart Rate Monitor does not measure the complicated issues like blood pressure and cardiac outputs but tends to detect blood flow under the skin and provide heart rate data. It can be useful in case users aren't spending money on fitness watches but some think it is just an unnecessary addition.

So the question for this week's poll is:

Is it necessary to have HR sensor on a smartphone?
Take part in the below poll and let us know your choice!

20 best replies will receive the MIUI Weekly Poll medal.

Don't put useless sensors that'll sacrifice any other sensors. But it can be good if it comes with temperature sensor instead. Coupled with barometer, it can be good for weather information.

Knowing your heart rate can provide you with helpful information about your health, therefore having a HR sensor on your mobile is important and necessary. It will be great feature of a mobile phone.

I don't think it's necessary!
I mean it'll be great to have it, but if we ignore it and add some other feature to the phone instead of HR Sensor, that will be much more better.

Not necessary in my opinion. The majority of people wish to monitor their heart rate during exercise. When I'm running at a moderate pace or working out in the gym, am I really going to want to pull out my phone and fumble around trying to find the sensor? No. I'm simply going to tap my Miband 2 a couple of times, let it read my heart rate and display the result on the band's screen.

Being a big fan of the Mi Band 2, I find HR sensor on the phone to be a bit redundant. I think its much better on the wrist together with step counter. Also using a phone to check my heart rate while in the gym is probably not as practical as wrist mounted HR sensor.

Preferably Yes, it detect simple data like heart rate and bloodflow. Some found it useless but maybe some of other people have heartbeat/bloodflow anomaly. Who knows it can detect your heart and sent those data to nearest medical station. It's tiny device should be integrated into fingerprint sensor.  :)

I think it's not. It's just a nice feature that when you buy a phone that has it, you're really impressed and then, if you're not a professional, don't use it anymore. And if you want to, you don't have to as you can get a Mi Band 1s or 2 that's pretty cheap with heart rate sensor, and you don't have to spend a lot of money on a Samsung flagship, for example.

HR sensor in a smartphone will be a waste of money!
I don't want to pay more for a phone with the addition of that HR sensor!
We have a Mi Band 2 for that purpose!
We don't have to squeeze everything in a phone.

Comment

soumya_2002 Well why would like to have an extra device for just tracking your activities? Would be better if they are fitted in the phone itself. For me wrist watches are more classy than fitness trackers :)  21:59, Oct-02-2017

Not necessary, for this better to use a smart bracelet like mi band, or some thing like this, you don't hold all time phone on the hands, and you knows your heart rate postfactum. But with smart bracelets you can check it every second, with Free hands.

Not necessarily needed, but if available, why not? As long as it wouldn't cost extra for the consumers.

I don't think that it's necessary. When most of us are having HR sensor in our smartband/smart watches then why in smartphone? But indeed it's needed for those who doesn't have any smartband/smartphone. But I think most of the smartphone users will own a smartband/watch in future.
