The Xiaomi Mi4i is currently one of the best midrange Smartphones, with impressive specifications at nominal price. The handset was exclusively launched in India and some other Asian countries few days back. Ever since Xiaomi has stepped in the Indian market, it has managed to capture not just the market share but also a good brand recognization, which is a great achievement for a brand that entered the market in July 2014.

Making a statement, let’s take a look at Mi4i Review and specifications:

The thin bezels and placement of the power and volume rocker acts as a key role in making the Mi4i one of the best Smartphones. The 3.5mm headset act sits at the top edge.
