Filling the internal storage of our Xiaomi is not a very difficult task. Videos, photographs and, in general, any other multimedia content, take up more and more space , so if your Xiaomi is compatible, you should activate the next option that we are going to show you.
As many of you know, Xiaomi has been improving the photographic section of its smartphones in recent years. Now, practically every model has a high-resolution camera , in turn causing the resulting photographs to take up more space.
In view of this, Xiaomi has been adding support for the HEIF image format on some of its smartphones, especially the higher-end ones . This, in addition to having a higher compression than that offered by other formats such as JPG or PNG, manages to maintain a very good image quality , while offering greater editing flexibility, very similar to that of the RAW format.
If we activate the RAW format in the camera of our Xiaomi, we will achieve that the resulting photographs occupy, in many cases, less than half the space than if we saved them in other conventional formats such as JPG or JPEG.
How to activate the HEIF format on your Xiaomi and save space
As we said, not all Xiaomi smartphones have HEIF support . It has only been added in those of a higher range or that have a better-performing camera. If yours is among the compatible ones, its activation is very simple:
- Go to the camera and access the Settings from the upper right menu.
- Activate the option « HEIF format «
In this way we will ensure that the photographs occupy practically half the space in our Xiaomi. Of course, unfortunately this format is not compatible with all applications so you will have to find out if its use really suits you depending on which apps you use.
