Love this phone, coming from a Samsung galaxy alpha. Yes, you will probably have to switch Roms, but I've run mine with both Cm 13.1 and Xiaomi.eu English version of Miui (my favorite) and love it. Used TWRP loaded with fastboot from TS Cm 13.1 and once done I've switched between Miui and Cm.
Installed (TS)team superluminal CM13.1 marshmallow 6.0.1, got rid of that stupid miui. Phone works amazing, blazing fast, very good battery life, no bugs yet discovered. i recommend to flash the cm 13.1 rom from TS, you won't regret it. I have the Mi 4c with 2gb RAM NOT the 3GB version but the ROM still works as intended.
this phone not fast charging ... i tried from 0-100% in 2,5 hours ... just like meizu m2 note but m2 note has long batrey life ...
zick, 08 Aug 2016please tell me how did you unlock the bootloader??I used this guide
The phone is good but the speaker is awfully slow. Is it only with my Mi4c or anybody else have the same issue with this phone.
My Mi4c 3GB/32GB came with a suspicious unofficial rom 77.something which drained the battery far too quickly when mobile data was on (spyware?). Changing to the official miui v7.something solved the problem. Now I'm on Team Superluminal (Finnish origin) Cyanogenmod 13.1 Marshmallow, which works like a dream.
For hardware, be careful when inserting SIM cards, especially with adapters, otherwise the dual SIM reader may get broken!
Excellent phone with a very good camera. HDR quality and the 13 MP of the photographs is astounding and the phone is very well balanced in user friendliness and functionality. Best buy considering price/quality! The only feature I can not find is the zoom function. Is there anyone who can help me out, or is there no zoom function on his device? Thank you very much!

fach, 26 Jun 2016Can i got english language in a chinese rom?yes, the Chinese Rom does support English language in options along other Asian ones.
Recently purchased the MI4C.
So far good phone. Got several annoying "features" that I can't seem to fix:
- Notification line is very narrow, and barely readable.
Online forums suggest changing a theme. I like the phone's default.
Isn't there another solution? Please assist.
- Red underlines while typing. When a foreign language (e.g. Hebrew), the
phone detects all of the words as typos. Can't find a way to turn off the spell check.
Thanks for the help.
fach, 26 Jun 2016Can i got english language in a chinese rom?Yes, i want to buy one in Chine, it was possible to change it to english. But the pre installed aps where still in Chinese.
AND, you will have a problem with 3G in Europe as the chinese ones are only CDMA and nor WCDMA.. So no 3G in Europe with the chinese one.
Now i buy mine in Kirgistan which is cheaper than in china and suport WCDMA...
