riyaz, 23 Jan 2016Since xiaomi is locking the bootloaders on mi4c from this year, will I still be able to instal... moreYou should not have problem installing updated stable roms via OTA or downloading from forum.
The current problem seems be with changing to developer rom or flashing third party recoveries and roms.
I bought an MI3 a couple of years ago when they were less international friendly and have not had issues that couldn't be overcome, had help from high up administrators as well.
Also I didn't need to flash anything to get the google apps just installed the installer and apps from the MI market same as you would install from play store.
There are a few posts on the MIUI EN forum that explain how to install many of the google apps using the google installer found on their MI market.
As for under priced phones lower price = large turnover = huge profit (1950s U.S marketing the birth of consumerism sell cheap will buy upgrade next year).
Guys, i recommend you guys not to buy Mi4C if you are from out of China, there is no problem with mi4c hardware and specs, the only annoying problem comes with the Miui itself, And when you checked with the official website it states that Mi4C is solely for sale in China only, meaning they don't have any reason to make an international compatible version of Miui.
The Mi4c itself is meant to be 'Mi 4 C(Chna)' and not because it supports usb Type-C.
I bought it 3 weeks ago, the phone comes with Miui china version, so there is no google apps and google appstore, it does comes with 'Miui appstore', music and video apps that only support in chinese language and app versions that is China-compatible apps only. So i tried to flash Miui dev version so i can flash root and install gapps as my default market app.
But then after flashed to dev version, they looked the bootloader and you have to apply to unlock, and the application takes forever, up to this moment still, by bootloader unlock application is still not receiving any confirmation yet.
My opinion is that Xiaomi is selling under-priced phones, but they force you to use their Chinese apps to gain revenue from those apps. And i wonder if our data is safe since all data are synced to xiaomi server and i think the browser itself gets online by routing to their server as well. I think they might be violating our privacy as well if all data enroute through their server.
And this is not international user friendly.
My advice : if you still wants to buy Mi4C, head to Miui forum now go to Mi4C subforums and check those comments of all Mi4c buyers.
If you have already bought it, well then good luck!
Hi i m comparring b/w mi 4i , mi 4c and redmi note 2 in terms of performance( like lag,bug problem etc ) please someone tell me which will be better.,....
Lapax, 27 Dec 2015It won't be launched in India. Mi4i was for India (i=India) this is Mi4c (c=China).using it in Argentina. enough 3gb ram, enough 32 gb space, enough speed, enough battery, happy with it. for now smiui roms seems to be the best, they are clean and multilanguage and updates every week, and very important: don't lock the bootloader!
guys .. am comparing between Mi4 or Mi 4c .. which is better, and why .. ?
Since xiaomi is locking the bootloaders on mi4c from this year, will I still be able to install miui stable rom?
Aspros, 20 Jan 2016I was thinking of this phone, as the spiritual continuation of LG G2. But i have a major conc... moreI get like 5.5hrs SoT which is almost identical to what my G2 got on a fresh battery.
I want to know the real problem of this phone. Is there any battery problem ?
I can confirm that the main camera actually shoots 4K video with the latest MIUI v7 updates.
I was thinking of this phone, as the spiritual continuation of LG G2.
But i have a major concern and thats its battery endurance. It has a terrible rating in gsmarena tests, can anyone of its owners confirm that it has 35% less battery than G2?
Such rating is shared with the dreadfull G3, which really dissapointed me because ofvits battery performance...

just bought a xiami mi4c less than a week but it kept saying "no sim card' although i've already inserted it. anyone have this problem and how to solve it?
just bought a xiaomi mi4c less than a week but the dual sim does not work properly.. it kept saying that they are 'no sim card inserted'.. did anyone had this problem too?
i am comparing between Mi 4, Mi 4i, and Mi 4c .. i am sensing that 4c is the best of them .. considering: performance, price, weight, and battery .. followed by Mi 4 as second best ..
I have a concern though regarding the screen, as it's not Corning gorilla glass (in case of Mi 4 and 4c) .. so does it scratch or break easily .. ? :(
Please let me know what you think and why .. am still reading through reviews and videos online to decide .. :)
