From the specifications, we can hardly find the difference between them. They are both with good looks and useful functions. And they both have NFC versions. One thing you should notice is the language. Xiaomi band 4 only supports English and Chinese languages. But Honor band 4 supports English, Russian, Spanish, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Chinese. Obviously, if you are not an English language user, you have no other choice but Honor band 4.

If Xiaomi band 4 does not have a variety of color bands, it will be ugly. And its body is really thick, in order to maintain a bigger battery. It is true that Honor band 4 can only last for 6 days with the sleeping tracker on. In fact, Xiaomi band 4 can only last for a week with frequent use of AI voice assistance. The strap of Xiaomi band 4 is harder than Honor band 4. So it is more comfortable to wear Honor band 4. For normal versions without NFC, the two bands have almost the same features.

Xiaomi band 4 has three unique functions Honor band 4 does not have.

  1. Lock from the wrist. Lock from the wrist function means if your Xiaomi Band 4 is away from your wrist, it can be automatically locked. I guess it is an anti-lost function.
  2. Music control function. Music control function is a little more useful but I prefer to directly control my music through my phone or my earbuds.
  3. AI voice assistance function. It is good but can not be used if you are not a Chinese speaker.

Actually, these three functions are not that useful and can hardly be used in our daily life.

Sleeping tracker on Honor band 4 is really good. The data is precise and very professional. Compared with Honor band 4, Xiaomi band 4 has a much poorer sleeping tracker. Even when I have woke up in the morning, it continues to record my sleep. The data is not precise at all.
