I have been using this phone from past 48 hours(that means I got it in the second flash sale). Yes, the first flash sale phone might had some heating issues, however, I did not experience any such with my phone. May be this will be resolved completely within the next few batches. Regarding the looks, believe me, it looks lot more stunning and sleek than in pictures and videos. Performance wise too the phone is good, although I still ain't installed many games, but the games like 'Guardians of the Sky'(I know this game ain't a heavy performance game like Asphalt etc). Battery is pretty good, but charging is pretty fast. Regarding the UI and the software, I must tell you that I was never a fan of neither IOS or MIUI, but this one was smooth like butter! Apart from the absent home screen everything is perfect!Camera is pretty good(I would have loved to show the images here, but that ain't an option!). Screen, Absolute brilliant! touch quality too! about the software, I can say almost 70% of IOS is held on MIUI 6! I would suggest those owners who got the device in the second sale.."If your phone is heating up, its better to replace the handset with another one. The next batch probably have this problem". New buyers, I would suggest you to wait for YU youphoria...compare and then buy this....coz YU might give a better competition.
its quite obvious that all devices heat up while using Camera. Even iPhone 6 gets heated up easily while recording videos after 1 or 2 minutes. The amount of heating depends on the external weather also which is a key factor in dissipating heat generated.
My review on MI 4I after using 6 days
1) **** poooooooooor sound quality **** (tested by sony,samsung,moto g2 ear phones and creative speakers )
2) Not properly charging ( automatically disconnecting AFTER approx. 40min.)
3) Display is heating more after : playing 15min. game, while charging, camera usage, 30min. wi-fi usage
4) Little bit manufacturing defect(light is coming out from the edges)
5) BATTERY IS 3030 mah ONLY
---- finally i am returning my mi 4i and planing to purchase new phone if anybody suggest me i vl b thankful to you----

This review after a week usage.
Got the phone on 2nd may reading all the reviews thought I share mine.
So far the only satfication in this purchase is the display (1080p) and the build quality, this is my secondary phone my usage is less but even a 10min browsing and few min calls phone touches 44degree and I don't think it can be fixed by any update. And the speaker is the worst I have seen.
The + are
Miui (pretty cool)
The - are
Heating issue (The Real major concern)
Speaker too low
If this going to be your primary phone and you are not going to be happy at all with the heating issue.
Mi4i Not at all at par with Mi4 .
Software issue ....bought from flipkart just now delivered ...
please rethink before buying
