Real user experience:
After just a week of carrying around in your pocket the edges start to wear out and starts to give a look of years of wear and tear.
Just because if has 808 processor don't think it's blazing fast. It still lags. It's only amazing on paper.
Phone heats up quite fast.
A lot of unwanted apps, but to be fair this was just meant for China.
Display is good, but looking at it after just having a look at an amoled, it will look dull.
2 GB ram, but more than half is taken up by the system.
The volume and power buttons are kind of flimsy.
Now for the good part:
Camera if Good
Some software features are really good like Side tap feature which is really useful
Double tap to wake.
When phone is lying down (not in your hand) the screen doesn't seem to respond easily. But once you pick it up then it responds as normal. If this a built in feature? Don't know if it's good or bad. I guess it could go both ways.
Battery is decent enough.
Thumbs up for fast charge.
Speaker sound good.
You can also get excellent sound from headphone once you set up the equaliser. But it wasn't as good as my old Sony Xperia Arc.
Has voice call recorder function. Very useful.
Type C usb could be good and bad. Good coz it's the latest and your future proof in that department. But you don't get a proper C cable in the box. Bad because you have to carry your cable around with you as your friends usb cable is not going to work for you.
alexv, 03 Dec 2015Xiaomi mi4c or lg g3? I prefer the first but the latter has proper warranty and costs the same... moreLG G3 has snapdragon 801AC processor which is older than Xiaomi mi4C snaprdragon 808.
The question is not what is better, its what important to you most? Waranty or better processing power.
jhon, 03 Dec 2015No protection screen?It has concord corning glass which is better than gorilla corning glass.
It doesn´t have FM radio, even though it is advertised like that. I´m very disappointed.

It has an online radio app which could make people think it has FM. The Mi4c does NOT have FM radio.

AnonD-470701, 29 Nov 2015Which is better Mi 4c and sony m4 aqua?Give me advicedefinitely, Xiaomi, man. It's cheaper, powerful (especially 3Gb RAM version), with more vivid screen (and higher density too), also Mi4c is smaller on wide side.
not your friend, 14 Nov 2015Mi series wont have memory card slot. Between i was thinking to buy this phone. So i need ... moreI have mixed experience compared to my Redmi Note. The tested game is the one from superrobot.aseugame.com. In most parts, it's generally a lot faster. However, nested dialogs are somehow rendered slower and that's the only part where the graphics suck, very weird. AnTuTu 3D test does show significant difference, though. I get 2-3 times fps depending on how I set my GPU clock. The default should give 2 times (30-35 fps), by setting the frequency higher I could reach 3 times (40-50 fps). Redmi Note's Mali-450 MP4 struggles at (12-18) fps.

GAURAV, 27 Nov 2015give me details about apps some person saying about this mobile chinese langauge coming The Chinese version can be set to English. So its OK for english only users. But Chinese version doesnt support other languages like Russian. Plus it uses lots of apps which useless outside China. This why I installed euMIUI.

You can get euMIUI from xiaomi.eu. You have to root the device, but it is done in few steps which is well described on the web. ( I done it in 3hours for the first time).
The MIUI is much better than cyanogenmod (Its looks like iOS with flexibility of Android).
