Never buy any Xiaomi products!
I've been loyal to Xiaomi for 2 year, bought in total 3 Xiaomi devices: Xiaomi mipad, Mi4 and Mi4 LTEE.
And I am fed up with Xiaomi.
First of all, I have problems with Mipad. It just stuck on "Turning on Wi-Fi", which goes forever. I did everything to revive it. Flashed it via MiFlash, via Recovery, Fastboot, ADB and etc. Tried millions of ROM, sometimes problem fades away just to strike you back later with more frustration. And i even didn't used it so much, maybe like 1-2 hours per week.
Then my Xiomi mi4 just went bricked while updating from official update app. I have fixed problem via ADB, because other ways didn't work.
After about one month, i got black screen issue on my mi4. Screen just goes black randomly. Like on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7ZJjgbyWa8
Third device, which is another Mi4 LTE is doing fine, but damage is done.
Now I am regreting to actually advice my friends to buy xiaomi (and they did, 3 phones: xiaomi note, redmi note 2, mi 3).
To summarize, i would give mi4 a 3+ user experience, i was happy with it for 1,5 years.
But mipad is A NIGHTMARE! It is just worst device i have ever used. Like totaly aweful product.
End of story.
Raccoon, 22 Feb 2016Think twice before buying Mi products. They are ignoring even critical bugs in their flagships... moreYeaah it's really true the device has any issue available tell me seriously actually iam try to bought the device that's y iam asking with u
Think twice before buying Mi products. They are ignoring even critical bugs in their flagships. Eg. Severe battery drain in standby/airplane mode bug in Mi4. It has been ignored since release and has been carried over successive MIUI releases, without resolution. One bug like this can make your phone almost useless and damage hardware.

Using this phone .. for past 1 year .. nice phone .. good performance ..
but too fragile .. already two time the lcd gt broken .. (not mmy fault also) .. i try to send to the company .. they treat like shit .. (china companies :/)
My Mi4 in 1,5 year got broken 2 times already. Once it was on warranty (exchanged LCD) second time (again not my fault) LCD is broken.
Was thinking about buying mi5 but second time my mi4 is dead so i cannot reccomend this phone!
PS. yes as ppl said before it has GPS signal problem even without mikey, and for me camera is worse than SGS3.
Other functions are quite cool and phone looks pretty. Shame that its broken again...
Amir, 14 Feb 2016This phone battery is good? .. Or drain? .. It's quite good .. with above average use, it gets you easily through the day ,..
with below average use .. it can give you 2 full days .. referencing my personal usage ..
wj, 17 Feb 2016mi4 or redmi 3?Mi4 is better than Redmi 3 .. in terms of screen, performance, and Camera .. Redmi 3 has a bigger battery .. but doesn't mean it has better battery life (might be consuming more, but unlikely though) ..
For me the best Xiaomi phone now is Mi4 .. followed by Mi4c .. although I don't believe in octa core phones .. seems too much ..
Drift, 10 Feb 2016Mi4 and mi4i, which one each better? My english bad..sory..hahahahMi4 is best, different chipset and more Ram .... :)
