Xiaomi Mi 4 summary

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.

Awesome value for money
By Shivani Bhatnagar | 26 May 2016
I've been using Mi 4 for the last 8 months. My experience, so far has been quiet nice. Pros: * Amazing resolution! (No other brand provides such a great resolution at this price. I've seen even Samsung products with the same quoted resolution specification and colors, but the actual delivery is poor) * Camera is pretty good. * Beautiful and stylish built. * Processor is fast. No hanging while multitasking. * Strong battery back up. Quick charging battery. * No heating issues. (Except mild heating during charging, I've never experienced any heating issues.) Cons: * Memory space is not expandable. * It doesn't come with a front flash. (Which might me acceptable) * The clicks from rear camera in low light using flash are noisy. * The sound quality is not too awesome but quite decent. * It doesn't come with a Gorilla Glass,and it's screen is said to be more prone to breaks.(So if you can handle it with care, Go for it!)
