Обзор смартфона Xiaomi Mi 4i

 

Обновленный и улучшенный флагманский смартфон компании Sony Xperia Z3+

Откровенно говоря, не ожидал от такой малютки, как Xiaomi Mi 4i, столько позитивных эмоций. Смартфон действительно мне понравился. Конечно, были моменты, которые вызвали вопросы, однако в целом аппарат получился классным. Если сравнивать по ощущениям,...

Xiaomi Mi 4i review: At Rs 12,999, the company surely has a winner on its hands - Tech2

 

We review the Xiaomi Mi 4i which was a global launch in India.

Let’s cut to the chase – at Rs 12,999, Xiaomi surely has a winner on its hands with the Mi 4i.

Xiaomi Mi 4i

 

It's an impressive device for sure; however, the lack of optical image stabilization on the camera and low internal storage were disappointing.

Xiaomi's polycarbonate handset sports a large bright screen, a decent 13-megapixel camera and a big replaceable battery packed into its slim frame. It feels surprisingly sleek and comfortable for a $200 handset.

Xiaomi's MIUI 6.0 interface replaces many native Lollipop features that may disappoint some Android purists. There's only 16GB of native storage and no expandable option. The lack of image stabilization hurts the overall camera quality.

The Xiaomi Mi 4i packs in a surprising level of polish and solid performance for a low-cost global handset.

Xiaomi Mi 4i review: A surprisingly sleek low-priced handset

 

The Xiaomi Mi 4i packs some fairly impressive hardware, including a 5-inch full-HD display, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a solid compact build while still sticking very close to the lower end of the cost spectrum.

Xiaomi Mi 4i review—The best specs for $200, but not the best software

 

A Snapdragon 615 and 3120 mAh battery are a steal, but the skin needs updating.

Outstanding value for money ; Great build quality and a matte, hard plastic shell that makes the phone feel like it's worth a lot more than $200 ; Lots of extra that aren't guaranteed on a phone this cheap. You get LTE and Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 ; A...

MIUI was fine when it was replacing KitKat, but as an alternative to Lollipop's Material Design, it feels dated. Everything has been paved over with the KitKat-era UI, so a lot of features are missing ; It still—still—has a menu button symbol. It...

Low end smartphone cameras are usually exercises in pain, but we took some camera samples anyway. Again, the only device we have that should be comparable is the Moto G, but we've also unfairly pitted it against the $300 Asus Zenfone 2 and the $650...

Xiaomi Mi 4i Express Review: Stands out from the crowd

 

If you are looking to buy an Android smartphone under Rs 15,000, then the Xiaomi Mi 4i is worth trying your luck on Flipkart.

Xiaomi Mi 4i Review: Misses the flagship hyperbole, but still a great phone

 

Xiaomi made its debut in the Indian market less than a year ago, and in this short time have managed to capture a decent market share as well as quite a

The Xiaomi Mi 4i is a well-rounded smartphone, and at Rs 12,999, it's hard not to recommend it no anybody. However, there are shortfalls and some niggles, and so the hyperbole of positioning it as a flagship smartphone should be avoided. Without that...
