The Xiaomi Mi 4 is priced quite a bit higher than the Mi 3 was, and attempts to step up to a higher market segment. Just like its predecessor, it offers a surprisingly powerful set of specifications for a reasonable price – though perhaps not as shockingly low as before. It looks okay, but not very premium. Thankfully, core components including the screen, battery life and camera are well implemented. However, storage expansion has once again been sacrificed in the name of design. We like the Mi 4 and what it brings to the table, but availability will be a problem and there are alternatives nipping at its heels. Read detailed Xiaomi Mi 4 review
