Xiaomi has again managed to deliver a jaw-dropping spec sheet with its Mi 4 smartphone.
However, it has failed to impress with the price tag like before. Many feel the phone, which is almost a year old, is over-priced in India, given the limited 12GB internal storage available to the user and the lack of 4G support.
It might be too early to talk about whether 4G is essential, but just 12GB of user memory for a smartphone which is meant for power usage is paralysing, especially since there is no way to expand memory. For the record, a minute of 4K UHD video recording on a phone like OnePlus One needs around 500MB of memory. It would have been a better deal if Xiaomi offered the 64GB 4G variant of the Mi 4 smartphone at Rs 19,999. That would have been a real Xiaomi product at a Xiaomi price.
So this time xiaomi has to think again if the company wants to expand its business in india.
And stock clearance pollicy in india has to be changed.
Mi4 is overpriced . If it come in 2013 then it would be breaking news. But now things changed. Many players like one plus one..huawei honor plus and yureka already came in india with high features.
So real time to think again to xiaomi.
Bye bye xiaomi
can we use it for INDIA network TATA indicom/RELIANCE CDMA networks??
Flipkart called and informed me that glass is OGS (One glass solution).
It is not as strong as Gorilla glasses, not comparable too.
Hitesh, 31 Jan 2015Price is so high, I think around 15000/- is max.very very true
Can we use this Xiaomi Mi4 in US ? Does it support AT&T or T-Mobile GSM band ?

Now i Understood , after all the comments .. Guys kudos to give real time views . It is only two thhings as very common person in india can uderstand .
1. They are clearing old stocks or refurbished stocks , the phone launched in 2014 june . Launch in india after nearly 1 year . What should i say ??
2. They are just charging the erricson ransom from Indian customers , thatz it ..
Not worth 20 K ....
Rather invest more 4-6 k and buy ipphone5-8gb , note neo 3 , or branded phones...... Think it or Scrap it !!!!!
Naren, 29 Jan 2015Nl singal sim I think not good mobile not slot memory card and dual SIM and 4g not good ok don't buy this mobile ok
MALAYSIA, 29 Jan 2015xiaomi mi4 great..!!! can beat iphone easily..!!!!All who gave review are right. Xiaomi are doing wrong with these features. I was also a gud fan of xiaomi.product. But time they did wrong with innocent public of INDIA.
Released price is very high without 4g, double sim, gorila glass. You should revise the price max 15000/- it will help all to buy your product only Think againg for price
no memory card slot and only 16GB memory.. a big disappointment :-(((
RekhaMathew, 30 Jan 2015Few things misunderstood by guys below. 16GB -> 12GB is available for user. You can bu... moreThis is not with gorilla glass 3 protection. I confirmed from flipkart itself. It is only laminated screen
It's really very disappointment from xiaomi side they think that the Indians are fools the outdated, no sd support, no black colour, please don't try to sale your waste products in India. you're losing your brand value in India i never expecting this from xiaomi side. If you are really interested on Indian market then launch redmi note2, mi5 in india.........
