Review of the Mi 4 from here
“Xiaomi’s Mi 4 offers almost everything you want in a high-end flagship smartphone — beautiful design and snappy performance at a price that’s just too good to pass up,” writes CNET in its bottomline or verdict of the Mi4.
Tech in Asia says that the Mi4 has a “great screen at 1080P” and a good build quality. Ars Technica notes that though the handset is “unoriginal,” it is “amazing.”
“Everything here is top notch: The best specs, fantastic build quality, a beautiful screen, a dirt cheap price, and software that, while different, works both aesthetically and functionally,” writes Ron Amadeo of Ars Technica.
Phone Arena in its spec sheet of the device notes seven pros and two cons for the unit. The pros being that it has extremely high pixel density screen (over 370 ppi), has big display, and provides fast mobile data support. The cons of the device for the gadget review and news site are lack of Micro SD support and battery is not user replaceable.
