roscoe108, 26 Nov 2015@Freshness: Where the heck did you find a Mi 4 for only $38??? Tell me...refurbished in terrible condition. probably
roscoe108, 26 Nov 2015Where oh where can you get the Mi 4 for $38??I am so sorry, I placed two orders that day, one 7" tablet and one MI4W cell phone and I accidentally mixed up costs, the tablet was $38 and the cell $209. My bad.
Mi4 has a critical bug that causes severe battery drain in standby / Airplane mode. You just need to activate airplane mode once or twice to see the effects! This causes hardware damage and also reduced battery life. This has been a known bug since MIUI 6 but Xiaomi has been ignoring it till date.
To get Xiaomi's attention to, please follow this link to MIUI forums and just click the "Confirm" button (in the 1st thread itself). Xiaomi pays more attention to bug reports with more confirmations. You will need to log into your MIUI account or create a new one there, which will take half a min. Please also consider posting your rant in the thread, if possible.

MIUI 7: en.miui.com/thread-183026-1-1.html
In case you aren't using Airplane mode, please do it anyway, as it may still effect battery life and you never know when you will need it. Ideally, you should be using Airplane mode at least every night (if you don't need to be on call all through the night). Just use it on your devices and see how your battery back up increases. Also use it in areas of nil or fluctuating network, as the phone uses significantly more battery in such areas. Battery loss when in Airplane mode should not be more than 0 to 1 % per night/day. Switching phone off instead of using Airplane mode is not a good idea as it takes more battery and causes needless wear.

Nidi, 17 Nov 2015Hi Friends i am so confused Mi4 was a good choice or not...? very nice fone im usng a year
Using this cell phone from last 8 months, I guess this is the right time to write a review. While.While buying the same please follow the customer reviews once.
1.Well the camera quality is good especially the front one , but the pictures taken show the false colours to an extent.
2. The battery backup is good, no issues with that.
3.The display and touch are the best among features.
4.Heating issue is always there even during talking for a long time gives the unbearable heat.
5.while playing few games the phone hangs and starts restarting on its own.
6.I have been facing issues with mic since I bought the phone, may b 5 times till now and only restarting fixes it.
7.Specs show 3 GB of RAM while I doubt over the same.
8.The weight issue is there, bears a bit of extra weight.
9.These days I am facing a major issue now, the phone switches off automatically.After reset the issue persists and doesnt start when only miui logo appears .
10.No 4G i guess
11.No dual sim
And more faults exist, I would suggest not to buy this crap more more then 10k.Rest choice is yours but trust me it will frustate you.I think you can invest may b 6 OR 7k may be some REDMI with this company.I bought mine at 24K and I regret my decision.You better dont buy it.
