Coming to the battery capacity, the Realme Band has a 90mAh battery, while the Mi Band comes with a 135mAh battery. Also, the Realme Band is simpler to charge, as you only need to take out one side and plug into the USB A socket. In the case of Mi Band 4, it needs to be taken out of the strap and charged only via the proprietary charger that comes with the box.
Both the bands look identical – they show SMS, calls, app notifications, as well as have sleep tracking, sedentary reminder, exercise tracker, step counter, phone locator, weather forecast, and heart rate monitoring.
