Design and Build Quality :
In terms of design Honor Band 4 looks premium in hand. There is no oval shape in the design which makes it less prone to scratches. The build quality is top notch. It also gets a textured design on the strap.The strap comes in 3 colours – Black, Blue and Pink.On the other hand the MI Band 3 comes with a not so premium design although the build quality is decent.The watch itself is oval shaped which makes it prone to scratches. The strap is a simple one with only one colour- Black.In terms of design, The Honor Band 4 easily beats the MI Band 3.
The Honor Band 4 gets a 0.95 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 240 x 120 pixels with a COLOURED display which is a first at that price point. The display is bright enough in daylightThe MI Band 3 gets a 0.78 inch OLED screen which is NOT COLOURED. Now thats Dissappointing. Isn’t it? The display is hard to see in bright sunlight.The Honor Band 4 beats MI Band 3 in this department too.

My suggestion would be the Honor Band 4 (Blue). For a couple of hundreds more, you get a premium looking fitness band with a coloured display and sleek UI. Although the step tracking isn’t as accurate as the MI Band 3 but it is more value for money.But wait..!Have you heard of the upcoming MI Band 4?I will suggest you to wait for it if you can. It will be more value for money as MI has always been, although price is the major factor.Let me know in the comments section about what do you think.
