Xiaomi as a smartphone company is crossing every limit and breaking every record any company has ever set in India. Their major releases like the Xiaomi Mi3, Redmi 1S and Redmi 2 (along with other devices) were welcomed in India with a lot of enthusiasm.
They were providing phones running on amazing specifications at much lower price when compared to other devices in the same category in India. But the recent launch of the Xiaomi Mi4 was a bit dull as OnePlus One was already selling like anything and seemed like a better option when you compared both the devices.
But Mi4 was still sold like anything. Now that Asus was preparing to introduce the Asus Zenfone 2 in India, Xiaomi decided to organize a global launch event on the very same day to launch their new Xiaomi Mi4i.
The Xiaomi Mi 4i is powered by a 2ndgenerationQualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core 64-bit processor and it is supported by 2GB LPDDR3 RAM and an onboard storage of 16GBout of which around 10.3 GB is available for the users to use.
Coming to the imaging capabilities, this phone is loaded with a 13MP backside shooter and a front facing shooter of 5 MP which can take shots within 80 degrees of the view so it’s a great camera for taking group selfies.
It is also a dual SIM 4G phone so you can use 2 SIM cards at the same time and both of the slots support 4G. It also has one of the world’s thinnest and slimmest motherboards found inside a phone so they have a lot of space left for fitting a battery in and it has a battery of 3120 mAh which Xiaomi claims that will last for at least a day and a half.
The phone comes with a brilliant display of 5 inches with a full 1080p display with a pixel density of 441 ppi which will be a great experience to look at.
The phone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with MIUI 6 Skin on top of it which covers all parts of the device and you won’t be able to find the trace of stock Android in there. MIUI 6 is a skin that provides users with some extra apps like a theme engine where you will be able to download and try various different skins etc.
One big downside of the Xiaomi Mi 4i is that it doesn’t have an expandable storage option so you will have to do with the 16 GB that you get on the phone.
