In my country, there are no official R4P. All of them are sold by private distributor. I bought it from from that distributor. First it comes with distributor ROM. But it is great, it got official update thus I use non official ROM. I'm using MIUI Global 188.8.131.52 now. What lack from this phone is camera quality and it is hard to find suitable tempered glass that match to R4P curve.
After using for 1 month:
- Fantastic battery life (5days on light usage) and 24 hours for continuous heavy usage
- Screen clarity and viewing angles
- Finger print sensor (super fast)
- Look (Excellent)
- Camera under day light is awesome
- MIUI is good with numerous themes
- Multitasking is superb without any lag
- Memory is 25gb free (enough for a decent usage)
- Heavy (158 g ) compared to redmi 3s
- Camera under night time
- Loud speaker is only on one side (somtimes being blocked when played games)
- LTE band B5 is missing (not very concerned here in Germany)
- No screen guard like Corning glass
- Hybrid sim slot
- No headset in the package
- Customer service is poor for xiaomi

Can anyone help me?
How to convert whole of the phone into English, because after switching into English I still found few apps in Chinese.. Its irritating 😕
Here is what you need to know:
- Smart Operating System. I am new to MIUI. Just dumped my Iphone and I was suprised to learn that MIUI was actually very nice to use. Xiaomi definitely thought of how to be as handy as possible. That being said there are some bugs and annoyances, but are not crucial to my opinion. I specifically dislike the fact that on lock screen you cant see all the messeages you've got but a notification of how many messages you haven't read and sometimes when I get a message pop-up on lock screen I cant write back (I click the letters but nothing happens). The whole area of notifications is just a tad problematic to my taste. But again, lastly, I still think it is a good phone from interface perspective so dont be alarmed.
Screen quality is really good.
battery - amazing.
Audio - I dont hear much music but I use headphones sometimes to speak and I hear all kind of clicks that arent supposed to be there. also the speaker is weak, for example you wont be able to use the speaker while driving. you wont hear so good over the engine.
camera - just not quality stills. I dont really use video. I guess its the same.
came loaded with malware that would try to install casinoware, war games at random times
