Conclusion​

Both products in this comparison have their advantages and disadvantages. Now you can buy Xiaomi Mi Box S at a price of about 64.13$, and the Google Chromecast with Google TV is about 66.56$. They are not much expensive and the price could not be the first factor to consider when comes to buy a new TV streaming device.

Although I believe that Chromecast with Google TV is a better product, it also costs more and requires a device that can cast. On the other hand, Mi Box S is a standalone product that can run Android TV and applications locally on the TV, but it is not as functional as Chromecast and Google TV.
