Anonymous, 24 Feb 2015I'm going to write in and ask corning directly, just to verify... I copied this (below) from ... morehow is the phone in working .i really want to buy a new phone so pls tell me about the phone
A lot of crap has been spilled, about the MI4 - so take mine now:
That's the most amazing phone I have ever touched, and I have seen all of them flagships whatsoever.
Never been happier. No matter the thousands of empty words here - everything about it rocks, screen is gorgeous, battery life is more than fine, works absolutely smooth and fast, camera is blazing, the feeling of holding it in the hand is superb, all others seem ugly being put next to it. MIUI is a top UI in all aspects, speaking that there's no perfect one - MIUI is definitely not perfect, but still great UX.
M facing serious heating problem.
Played Truck simulator foe 5 minutes and mi4 was heated up like anything.
Flipkart Customer care says heating upto 50'c is normal for a phone with 2.5ghz processor.
Battery drains out like anything. With 3g on , browse internet or fb . battery doesn't last for even half a day.
I charged it for continuous eight hours for the first time after factory resetting the setting as suggested by flipkart tech person
Very poor performance by mi.
Any one facing similar heat issue and got your refund or replacement from flipkart ?

Angry Mobile Nerd, 23 Feb 2015Sorry but I don't buy it.
Again, if Meizu can get listed on Cornings website why can't Xiao... moreI'm going to write in and ask corning directly, just to verify... I copied this (below) from cornings website, which means if xiaomi did not provide model verification to corning, corning will not list them as they are not authorized to use the GG trademark for advertising.
"The devices on these pages have been verified by the manufacturer and Corning as using Corning® Gorilla® Glass. The manufacturers and devices detailed on these webpages are the only manufacturers authorized to use the Corning® Gorilla® Glass trademark in their device promotions. Select device manufacturers have not been willing to provide Gorilla Glass model verification. In those cases, please ask the manufacturer directly or contact Corning here and we will do our best to help you."
Don't buy this mobile... RAM is poor because lord RAM does not allow. Difficult to root because Dlink WiFi router is not working and MIUI is not Custom ROM, EMMC card cannot be formatted because the ui is in Chinese.
Unable to install WhatsApp. Message showing there are one or more task killers

Again, if Meizu can get listed on Cornings website why can't Xiaomi? It's actually in the best interest of both parties to get listed because it's good PR for both Corning and the manufacturer. I know there are a lot of hipsters out there spreading rumors suggesting Xiaomi can't officially state they use Gorilla Glass because of licensing agreements, etc... again, all BS in my opinion.
I have a feeling Xiaomi used "Gorilla Glass" sourced from an unofficial/unauthorized channel which is/was probably a factory in China producing it without the consent of Corning. Corning does manufacturer in China, and the downside to when you set-up operations/manufacturing in China is you no longer have trade-secrets as you have to disclose everything to the Chinese government which opens the door for local firms to rip your technology off.
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2015Thanks! I forgot actually forgot about that list corning had... That makes it even more confu... moreI guess this link might shed some light... apparently xiaomi does use gorilla glass on certain devices, but they are not listed on cornings site?
Angry Mobile Nerd, 22 Feb 2015Corning keeps an updated listing of devices that have been verified to be using Gorilla Glass ... moreThanks! I forgot actually forgot about that list corning had... That makes it even more confusing though, because Xiaomi's Mi3 was confirmed to have Gorilla glass, but that is not listed on cornings site either.
Angry Mobile Nerd, 22 Feb 2015Corning keeps an updated listing of devices that have been verified to be using Gorilla Glass ... moreThanks! I forgot acgtually forgot about that list corning had... I wonder how Xiaomi is able to get away with such a thing..
go for software upgrade in mi phones it can drastically reduce temp issue...but guys ur using a 2.4 Ghz processor...so its well expected..
mi is using a good heat conductor for ventilating this heat out..in result a bit heat body... but its far expected...
opo is using a gard to prevent this heat inside,thats actually not good for the processor ..
mi4 is worth buying
caps lock on: do not buy this phone its worst at battery pathetic battary back up and heating issues.
rest phone is 10 outta 10 leaving battery on one side
