I'd already changed the battery twice, maybe because of my usage for (battery-drainer) gaming.
But overall, this phone is fine - as long as you feel comfortable with its display size which is considerably small these days.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2019please give me the battery link in ali expressAfter a bit of googling I chose Nohon BM35 back then. Personally I ordered from this specific shop:
But probably most shops on Ali Express which carry this Battery are fine.

After I ordered a new battery from AliExpress for 14Â€, which arrived after 10 days, and switched the battery out (not that hard), I get like 4 times the SoT.
Now with 10.1 xiaomi.eu ROM and the new battery it is like the perfect phone. It was comparitly cheap back then, but you can get some used now for under 100Â€, which is very good.
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)
