Here’s What Wonders MIUI 6 Interface Can Do For Xiaomi’s Mi 4i

xiaomi miui screenshot

The Chinese giant Xiaomi has caused more than a stir in Indian terrain with the Mi 4i. The MIUI 6 interface overlapping Android 5.0 Lollipop has been a talking point for initial buyers but we figured that the latest ware from China’s Apple has a lot more to offer in this context. Besides the superb visuals on screen, the grand gesture responses and the amazing fonts styles, what got us hooked was ability to add a fresh home screen to accommodate  phone widgets in a less clustered way. Not that we have not seen this feature in the Note Series from Samsung or the LG L series, coming from a budget maker like Xiaomi, this is a surprise. There is also root access for all apps on the Mi 4i. Perhaps the best part of the MIUI 6 security app is how it lets you hike up the battery life of [+more]

Xiaomi Mi 4i Review

The Latest Xiaomi Mi 4i

With the release of Xiaomi Mi 4i yesterday at New Delhi in India, it’s time for a neutral roundup of the smartphone. We love the beef in the Xiaomi Mi 4i thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615. There is no mediocre generation chip this time and with 1.7 GHz octa-core processor multitasking will be a cakewalk. The 5-inch screen size is not pathbreaking but we love the brightness and resolution thanks to 1080p display. The 2 GB RAM is a set standard in the current age but the 16 GB onboard storage offers ample meat for the price. The Android 5.0.2 Lollipop is again not much of a surprise but the 3120 mAh battery indeed wows us. Snapping selfies and pictures are an awesome experience with the 13MP main camera with HDR specifications inbuilt.  The 5MP front shutter makes you click fabulous selfies. The metal build is decent. The corners are [+more]
