Xiaomi Mi 4i: High End Features, Mid Range Price

Xiaomi has released the Mi 4i, a more affordable alternative to the Mi 4 that’s packed with high end features.

For starters, the Mi 4i comes with a 5-inch FullHD display in a polycarbonate body which replaces the metallic sides and premium looks of the Mi 4. The display panel sports adaptive brightness technology which is dubbed Sunlight display.

The internals of the phone come with a Snapdragon 615 64 bit SOC instead of the Snapdragon 801. The device comes with 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of built-in storage while the graphics are handled by an Adreno 405. The camera department features a 13MP main camera with dual LED flash and a 5MP front camera.

The software side sees a lot of improvement as well as the camera features include beautify and HDR modes with an overhauled design. The phones fits a rather big 3,120 mAh battery under the hood that should last even longer than the Mi 4 and the phone weighs a very light 130g making the phone light and smaller than the Xiaomi Mi 4.

    china ka maal … Qmobile also has high end specs and low price, and it works just like any other china ka maal

    • Eliot Hayworth

      Your shitty re-branded ‘Qmobile’ handsets lack the originality which Xiaomi possesses in all their handsets. Your myopic brain lacks the foresight to differentiate between a multinational company such as ‘Xiaomi’ and a local company such as ‘Qmobile’. Do you know how successful Xiaomi is? It has replaced Samsung in various markets as the next best smartphone brand. Next time do your homework before you come here and ramble shit.

      • LifeH2O

        Only benchmark I have for brands is how well their low spec, low price phones work. You almost always get good stuff with the higher prices. Put more money and you will get good out of Samsung and QMobile. Samsung, QMobile and Oppo phones are shit. They don’t even run smooth on factory setup. Huawei and Motorolla work fine though.

  • Fakhre Alam

    16 Gb with NO SD card slot.

    • Dill Dar

      I think lenovo k3 note is better than this because it have almost same specification and price as low as 145$ to 160$
