MIUI 6.6.6 (new update) mostly solves battery draining issue of MIUI 6.6.5 (last major update). MIUI team will surely come with more advanced updates in future.
For comparison :
Lenovo K3 note / similar priced products got price advantage against Mi4i. But Mi4i got slight advantage in following departments :
It gives small size phone with 5" display, heavy battery, good looks and easy to use with 1 hand.
Quality is long lasting and gives premium feeling.
If price really matters then choose redmi 2 (half price of Mi4i)
I have ordered mi4i on 18th july from snapdeal and got it on 26th of july.. now i want to give a short review for your help..
Many people complaining that it has over heating issue and fast drain problem.. I wang to tellyou about this that it is totally false.. I am continiously using it with wifi on since it is delivered to me.. No overheating... Just normal heating
Disply is superb
Camera is very good but not amazing
Battery back up is superb
Sometimes lags while multasking in balance mode
Sound is good... In headphone it is superb
Build quality is superb
Ultimately it is a excellent phone for rs12999
upen mahto, 25 Jul 2015Hi friends, I am using this phone since last two months.I was having problem with over heating... moreyou can try one of these..
1-switch off auto brightness..
2-go to advanced settings in wifi and switch on wifi on only during plug-in..
3-reduce the "sleep after"timing to 30 secs..
4-charge the mobile completely from next time..
for 13k Phone u can not expect everything will be best in all
and battery drain issue and heating issue reduced in latest updates
camera front & back day is ok but night time so so
u can not expect like SLR or cybershot
Vicky, 25 Jul 2015Same in my case. Please help...Problem solved.Received 41 mb update yesterday. No drainage issue now. Thanks xiaomi team.
want to replace my i9300 to HS..a sum of people started to sell this phone online while using it for just one week in indonesia..is it best to buy this new or just go for second hand?
I purchased the handset because of its battery and dual sim option. But my experience is very bad. Heating problem, battery gets drained too fast. My previous lenovo phone was dual sim and almost same battery and it used to cover 24 hours with data connection on. But this phone gets drained in 12 to 15 hours. Not worth. Better to look at other options
How about its customer service?i want to know its detail camera spec?is it a sony or samsung sensor?how much memory it avail out of 16 GB?
And wat to do wen this phone gets hanged to get back our data, cz no sd card slot is ther fr this phone...??
Is there really heating issue and fast battery drainage for all phones?? If its there, then how can v resolve it by.just updating it? And in gsmarena specs they have given just MIUI 6.0 but i dint understand by upgrading it to MIUI 18.104.22.168/22.214.171.124??
