Here Is The Quick Review Of Xiaomi Mi 4i With Pros And Cons


1. Display

A stunning FHD display with the pixel density of 441 pixels is what called detailed. IPS LCD is always good for multimedia. Color saturation is bright and vivid, but not overdone. OGS technology here replaces the traditional gorilla glass and comes with Sunday light feature, making the display more visible during daylight.

2. Powerful Processor 

Xiaomi Mi 4i sports a 64-bit octa-core processor with Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC combined with Adreno 405 GPU clocking 1.7 GHz and 1.1 GHz Quad core in both. In performance, the new snapdragon 615 is quite similar to 600 except 64-bit arch. everything in snapdragon 615 is slightly higher 600.

3. LTE Supported 

The device is LTE supported which is a good thing as the 4G services in India have already started expand to more states.

4. RAM

There is a 2 GB of RAM available in Xiaomi Mi 4i and thanks to the new optimized processor. Now, you can use the RAM to fullest of extent resulting seamless and lag free multitasking.

5. Camera

The device has a 13 MP rear camera capable of shooting 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. There is a dual LED flash (dual tone) for snapping in the dark. There are many photo enhancement features like HDR with enhanced alignment, ghost removal, contrast and many more. There is a 5 MP front camera too.

6. Battery 

The 3120 mAh Li-iON is here to run this device. With features like Quick charge and decent optimization by the new 615 processor, battery backup won’t be a problem here.


1. Non Expandable Storage

Xiaomi Mi 4i comes with 16 GB of internal storage without any micro sd  card slot and there isn’t any 32 GB version of this device too and this is the most disappointing thing with this device. On one hand you give 2 GB of RAM with a processor that can use it to 100% and on the other hand, you limit its capabilities by not giving sufficient storage for big games. You have a stunning display bit still you’re limited to add videos. The combination of non expandable 16 GB ROM with 2 GB RAM is just beyond my thinking.
2. Glossy Back
Though glossy back is good looking, but it makes the smartphone slippy and following the fact that there is no gorilla glass. We’ll count this as a con.
There is nothing else that I find bad with this device, If you’re fine with 16 GB of non expandable storage than this smartphone is a steal.
