The Mi 4i runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with the MIUI 6 skin on top. In terms of appearance, there isn’t a different look despite the Android Lollipop treatment.
Only when you are in the Play Store to download apps, do you notice visually different controls from the MIUI 6 skin.
It comes with 16GB of internal storage of which 12.9 GB is available to the user. Sadly, there isn’t a provision to add in a microSD card.
Xiaomi Mi 4i comes with a poly-carbonate rear cover which is non removable and this cover wraps the phone from the rear side giving smooth rounded corners and edges. In terms of design there are more hints of the Red mi 2 rather than the Mi 4i.
There’s a soft touch matte finish with a non grease coating. The volume rocker and the power/standby button on right hand side are made of steel and have a nice feedback.
The dual SIM tray is located on left hand side. On the top you have the 3.5mm audio jack and at the base there is the micro USB charging and data transfer port.
The Xiaomi Mi 4i houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC (second generation) which has an octa core processor. You get a quad core Cortex A53 clocked at 1.7GHz also known as the performance cores and another quad core processor clocked at 1.1GHz known as p
ower saving cores. It has an Adreno 405 GPU. This is paired with 2GB LPDDR3 RAM.
The xiaomi is currently in stores in Nigeria at the price of N40,000 and Rs 13,000 in India (205 USD).
