Xiaomi Mi 4i Review
Xiaomi today announced the Mi 4i, a smartphone meant for markets outside of its home country and largest market, China. Emblematic of its global ambitions, this is the first time Xiaomi’s skipping China for another country.
With an Indian launch event, Xiaomi wants to build momentum in its second largest market. The Mi 4i’s price of 12,999 Rupees (which converts to around $205, £140 or AU$265) makes it much cheaper than its immediate competitors, such as the Samsung Galaxy Alpha A7 or the Moto X.
It’s a ridiculously attractive price point, one that’s guaranteed to make sure the phone not only sells out almost immediately in India when it launches on April 30, but also in the other markets where it will debut next month. Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia and Indonesia are the other countries where it will be sold.

The Mi 4i has a very standard rectangle design, with noor a , but it doesn’t need such fripperies to make an impression. Its profile is a slim 7.8mm, and it weighs just 130 grams (4.6 ounces). Holding it in my hand, it has a reassuring heft that exudes quality despite its plastic case. The steel power and volume buttons located on the right help with this.
