These phones were real hidden gems. Fast CPU in 5.0 inch form, cameras not crap in low light (way better than redmi note 3 pro). Using the latest MIUI 10.1 stable xiaomi.eu builds - the final stable build for this phone after 3yrs of MIUI updates (it's officially discontinued for updates now), get about 5hrs SoT and zero complaints about lag. USB-C and quick charging in a budget 2015 phone.
Nobody cares to upgrade their Mi4C yet, they don't want to get a bigger heavier phone and there's almost no point for them to upgrade with their basic use. $300 total bought 3 strong smartphones for my family they've been in use for 2 years and still going. They will probably only be replaced when the battery is no good, not because poor performance or desire to upgrade.
This phone never received an official global ROM, and didn't have bootloader protections to prevent resellers from rooting and shoving adware into the phone, but if you flash the xiaomi.eu build this phone is still quite good for what it is.
I wanted to check my phone and I could not do that. Please help

Does Mi 4C support USB OTG?
Actually it isn't clear to me about USB OTG capability, has it to do with hardware or software related?
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2018The glass was broken twice, and my Mi 4c is just in the recycle bin.and what have you done with 4c?
Should have been a really good phone but it's severely marred by factory installed advertising spam malwear, this was not disclosed on their website or the sellers website, consequently xiaomi are using my data bandwidth to feed me unwanted spam without my permission
This wouldn't be so bad but I have to contend with their abusive delays in getting the unlock code for hardware I open so I can replace their Trojan horse os with a clean Android load
Of course their website is in Chinese making it harder than necessary to request the code to unlock
I have to swipe twice to unlock, the first time to remove the sensory assault spamvert
For this reason I cannot recommend xiaomi products and advise buyers insist on checking the phone is clean before purchase

*used redmi note 3 pro 3/32 Kenzo
*this phone (Mi 4C), used, (about $20 cheaper)
Both are in good conditions.
Anyone with mi4c with xiaomi.eu rom nougat? Does it work good? because I read older reviews that it is not, im thinking if i should update or not. (Currently still with android 5)
Bought 2 of those on October 2016. After 1 year both had to get a battery replacement. The battery went dead. For one of them it may be my fault since I left it drain completely and then charge it, which is wrong for Lithium batteries. However older smartphones I had never had such issues. In addition after a minor fell with a silicon tpu case (table hight drop) the case went black. I replaced it and it works again. Notice that if i did not have the technical skills to carry over the repairs I would have 2 bricked phones or payed a lot in services. Consider the redmi series, or motorola...

Cheaper than a used Redmi Note 3 Pro (which is always be my benchmark point, and is superior on performance)..
Mi series is on higher place than the Redmi Note series, so I have some hope on this Mi 4c, although it's older and slower etc.
Anyway, is it worth to buy this Mi 4c compared to the Redmi Note 3 Pro?
