I am using xiomi mi4i from 3 months and i am very disappointed with its performance though it supports an octa-core processor yet it doesn't give performance as normal other quad core processer phones
Even if i compare its processing power with intex aqua i5 then also mi4i will lose
Display:- Its all about the display in this phone. The display is very nice and bright. If i say it is better display than iphone 6plus than it is 100% true. 1080p display with 441 pixel density,its very gorgeous and also gives great viewing angles and the display is brighter enough to see in sunlight.
camera: It has a 13mp camera at backside and a 5mp camera at front, both are nice and gives a descent picture quality. There are modes in the camera app like beautify, hdr and few others which are preety much useless. The real time HDR is nice but if you use hdr mode and click photos while using many apps in background the phone will give a big time lag as you click the picture it will just take about 40-50sec to save a picture until just it will show loading circle.Again it is just because of poor octacore processor performance.Taking photos in low light also gives a descent quality but a little bit grainy image.Front camera is nice and i don't have any complaint about that.
speakers: I am not satisfied with the speakers.They are not loud enough to wake you up in the morning of you are using your phone as an alarm. you will miss many calls if you are in crowded area with lot of noise around you. Front speaker is descent and it is loud enough to heard your callers voice.
Battery:-If the battrey is bad then the overall phone is considered as bad. If you are a heavy user then the phone is not for you. The battrey drains quick say if i charge my phone from 0to100 in morning(takes 2:40 hours to charge) and use the phone heavily multitasking with 0brightness on 2g network and with wifi,bluetooth,gps everything turned off it will comes to low battrey warning within 4-5 hours.Battrey drains itself about 10 to 15 % over night with all apps closed. if you don't use internet on your cellular network and use on wifi then the battery will give 2-3 hours more backup. Battrey charges quickly upto 40%in just 20-25mins.
Gaming:- I do gaming on phones but the other phones like micromax or intex do well in gaming as compared to mi4i.
it has only 2 gb ram out of which around 1800mb ram is usable and from that 1800mb ram miui uses 1gb approx and you will only get around 600mb ram if you don't use fb,instgram,whatsapp, apps that always runs in background. suppose if you filled your phone with around 5to6 social networking apps and 1 launcher like nova or aviate then you will only have 300mb of free ram that is not going to perform will in gaming
For example:subway surfer many of you lile to play this game, and suppose you are chatting with your frnds and playing games and downloading something with browser like ucbrowser,then your phone will give you a heavy lag on playing subway surfer.it is the worst nightmare that you are going to break your friends highscore and your phone lags and gameover or rhe app crashed. that will be a shit.
STORAGE:-ONLY 11GB with no memory card slot.11gigs are not enough if you have a full hd display . almost all hd movies are around 1 gb or so and fullhd song of resolution of 1920*1080 are around 60-70mb.so your phone is going is run out of space preety soon and you don't have any option to move that data in any in memory card or else you have only option to delete that data or tranfer it to your computer or any pendrive with otg.
USER INTERFACE. IT has miui which is a rom designed by xiomi and all of the shit is inside this rom.MIUI is buggy and slower than Samsung's touchwiz. it takes a lot of ram . Xiomi has destroyed the flavor of lollipop by merging their rom with android lollipop 5.0
at last the phone is upto the mark if you are not a heavy user.

I suggest you wait for a few days before you start saying your phones good.
And besides what are you doing in the review column within a day of buying?
Just got the phone yesterday. After 10 minutes of normal usage felt that the phone was getting slight heated top behind. I checked for the updates from (settings - About) and now shows no more updates. As the phone came with 40% charge, I am charging it till 100%. Keeping my fingers crossed to see whether the issue persists.Just want to ask u whether its normal for the phone to get heated up (I am not playing games).
After update the mi4i shows as following :-
Kernel - 3.10.49-puf - g7023b7a-00761-g7a6cad3
Muii ver - MIUI 18.104.22.168 (LXIMICH) ! stable
Android ver - 5.0.2 LRX22G
I m using mi4i for iorning my shirt & phant super heat up tank you mi team xiaomi í ½í¸Ší ½í¸€

Hii everybody,i am a mi4i user for last 4 months..many people commenting many things...but i want to share my experiences..
1)First of all,bulid quality is sturdy.
2)Display is superb.
3)Sound is good,but i think redmi2 has better bass
4)I will give 4 star out of 5 considering the price.Daylight photography is decent,but low light photo graphy is not so good,but not bad at all.
5)It is true that there was a heating problem when i first bought it..but after many updates,i feel heating problem in mi4i is completely solved.but,one thing i am unable improve the stand by time..it drains almost 15%-20% over the night..i think google apps are the main culprit..uninstall all the google apps.
6)i donot play too much games..but whenever i played i didnt feel any over heating.
7)somebody complaining that he is unable to use usb tethering..i dont know why he is geting thing problem..maybe some wrong settings in his pc..i hv never feel such problem
At last i want to say,my mi4i is too cute to hate...i hv used many high end mobiles like galaxy s4,gionee s7,xperia z....but mi4i is my sweetest phone ever

abhishek, 15 Oct 2015i suggest u u should buy samsung j5 its a good and best n best mobile each in everything ... moreI haven't used the phone yet... My girlfriend ordered it for me from flipkart for my birthday.. Yay... Besides the point I would not go for any established brand at this price range with the exception of Asus and moto... As those phones have lower specs and more of brand value added to the price... Samsung j7 and j5 absolutely shitty.... If it were my choice I would have bought zenphone 2 deluxe or Z ultra... Right now I use a canvas 110 with a broken... Anything is welcome
Any handphone will have heat produce when u r using it. Even iphone will produce heat.
This is worst phone i have ever seen....so much heating problem....internet is not working properly......all apps are running on wi-fi only ...highly disappointed..go to motorola...anytym
hi friends recently i taken this phone ...phone heats alot (its not normal heat if i play any video getting over heated guys dnt buy this phone)
raja, 18 Oct 2015so much heating problem Close the background applications as they are the culprits who heat up the phone.
I have this phone about a month, Overall it is alright (for the money) but nearly every one has experienced some kind of problem. Mine has problem with tethering as a USB - tethering and hot spot. My data plan allows that but I can not use it. It is very sad because the phone looks very nice and attractive.
I FEEL VERY DISAPPOINTED. In my opinion the XIAOMI way to sell phone is nice design, good characteristics for the price but not fully functional phones. EVERY SINGLE PHONE HAS A PROBLEM. Some have overheating, others no wife or tethering and ect. If you go in their xiaomi forum you will see so much complaining. I don't understand Xiaomi they seem to attract the customer only on paper with the characteristics but in fact the phone is not what you would think in real. For Example Mi 4i has very good display but kills the battery, a good battery that goes dead for a few hours because the display is too powerful. The phone is very thin, why make it a bit thicker but with bigger battery. It is cheap. Make it a bit more expansive but everything to work.
Before to buy my phone I read some complainings but I hoped that is not going to happen to me. I strongly advise you TO CONSIDER NOT BUYING XIAOMI. Out there on the market there is a choice of better phones for the money.
