The Taiwanese tech giant, Xioami has finally held the ‘i is Here’ event and there the company has revealed the Mi4i as expected. There was a hush-hush situation as the company has invited a lot of people and the Mi fans were very proud over there. The CEO of the company was there and Hugo Barra was there too. The Xiaomi Mi4i was launched in India exclusively and India has been given he priority. It will hit the Indonesian shores by the end of the month. The handset comes with a lot of new features. The device is very slim and what we can say about it is that it is a very good option for the consumers having a 15k budget.  So, what to buy the Xioami Mi4i? Carry on reading to know the answers.

Yeah! You have read it right. It is answers and not answer as there are many resons. So, here goes the 5 bet reasons to purchase the Xioami Mi4i.

Design and Sunlight Display:

The Xioami Mi4i comes with a 5-inch multi-touch capacitive touchscreen display which offers a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Well, there are many phones present in the price range, and offers HD display. The Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo is there, and the users can compare the specs of this device to the newly launched handset to know a lot more about the devices under 15k.

The design is quite nice, it is very sleek. It is 8.3mm thick and the Taiwanese tech giant has done most of the tests and Mi4i has passed all those tests. If you have watched the love streaming, then, you will probably have some idea. The handset comes with a FHD display and the pixel density of this device is quite good. Now, Mi4i is using the new JDI display developed by Sharp. The pixel density of this handset is 441PPI and it has got 95% of NTSC color gamut.

The handset comes with a Sunlight display which is quite good and this is something different. What is a sunlight display? To explain the Sunlight display, suppose that you have just clicked a picture(no mater whatever the situation is), check out the picture in Sunlight. It will be same, but if you will see that same image with the Mi4i then, you will see that the image colors are changed and it has become bright. In the demo video, the company has shown this feature with the help of a torch.

This display is laminated with a Corning OGS display glass. So, the display is not going to be a fingerprint magnet for sure. It also supports a wide 178 degree of viewing angle with IPS technology.

Second Generation Snapdragon 615 Processor:


Earlier this year, Consumer Electronics Show was held where the company has launched the new 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor, but Xioami has not even compromised with that as they have brought the Mi4i with the second generation Snapdragon 615 processor. This processor can be found on the handsets like HTC Desire 826, LG G Flex 2 and some other devices present around 25K, but Hogo Barra and team has brought the second generation chip in it.

It is a 64-bit octa-core processor. It is not a true octal-core processor, and thus, it formed by adding two quad-core chips. It comes with the A53 architecture and is cocked at 1.7GHz, Along with that, there is 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM present in it and we think that it is going to be enough for playing the high end games. Apart from that, we do not think that the handset will receive some over heating issues. It comes with an Adreno 405GPU. So, with the help of this processor the users can do their day to day work very easily and it shouldn’t hang.



The Xioami Mi4i comes with a 13-Megapixel camera on the back which is capable of shooting 1080p Full HD videos at 30fps. It uses the Sony Sensor in the camera and you should expect some great shakes from this camera as Sony sensors are considered one of the best in the industry. It comes with a two-tone flash which intelligently adapts to room color temperature.  It also features an amazing HDR feature with automatic gamma and contrast running, color correction and low-light de-nosiing. On the front there is a 5-Megapixel camera and this new front camera is capable of telling your gender and age. It also added 36 beauty profiles.

The camera is expected to do a lot as in the demos we have seen them doing a lot over there. They have shown us some pics which were capture by the MI devices. One thing is sure, Xioami is getting bigger day by day. They have already sold a lot of phones and yes they do they want more sales from India and thus, specially for Indian users they have added most of the languages. Apart from that for real performance, we have to test this camera so that we can find it at it’s best.


IVR Sensor, Battery and Other features:

Xioami has introduced a new IVR sensor today, and here IVR stands for Interactive voice response. That was not the end, the company has launched the Visual IVR which is quite good and the feature is not present in any of the smartphone under 15K. It is also a 4G device and supports most of the Indian LTE bands. It also supports connectivity features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB port and a 3.5mm head phone jack as well. It comes with a 3,120mAh battery and the size of this battery is also decreased. It has got 38% higher capacity than most premium 5-inch phones. Also, the company has launched it with a new charger which is going to charge it very quickly.

It charges uppto 40% in an hour and for 100% charge you have to wait for 3 hours which is just an okay feature as most of the smartphone get 100% charge by this time. It is one of the world’s first phone using 4.4V 700Kh/L high density battery technology. It has also got the best components from companies such as Corning, Qualcomm, Sony and Samsung.



This is also a very important part. Consumers see it as the main feature of a smartphone. Well, the device is priced at Rs. 12,999 and it justifies this price tag very well. Xioami is going to make the survival of other companies difficult in the country as there is no doubt, it is the best smartphone under 15K at this moment. No one know, what future handles, but it is sure that the Mi4i is going to be a massive hit as there are phones above 25K providing most of these features.

So, these are the 5 Best Reasons to buy the Xioami Mi4i. It is one of the best smartphone under 15K at this moment, but at Canvas Spark launch event Micromax announced that they are going to bring a new phone under 15K. So, we should stay tuned for that. But, for now that is all. Stay tuned for the complete hands on experience with this device.
