These are Xiaomi Mi4C best features that end users might not know existed brought to you by you Sydney CBD Repair Centre Team.
WELL-BUILT FOR THE PRICE
For a £150 phone made of plastic (albeit with a metal inner frame for enhanced rigidity and durability) the Xiaomi Mi 4C is actually really quite good-looking. A thin slab just 7.8mm thick, it has a soft-touch coating that feels great in the hand. There’s no creaking or flexing – this phone feels very well made.
READABLE SCREEN OUTDOORS
The screen is a plus point, with a 5in full-HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS panel with a sharp pixel density of 441ppi. Contrast is excellent, though the screen could be brighter – we found ourselves using it at maximum brightness at all times.
That said, this is a ‘Sunlight display’ that is claimed to be much easier to view in all conditions. We weren’t blessed with any sunshine at the time of our review, but we certainly didn’t have any problems reading the screen outdoors.
NEXUS 5X SPECS FOR HALF THE PRICE
The Xiaomi Mi 4C has the same core hardware as the Nexus 5X, with a 1.8GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit chip, Adreno 418 graphics and 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM (3GB in the 32GB Advanced model). Both feature full-HD IPS screens, although the Nexus’ is slightly larger at 5.2in against the Xiaomi’s 5in. On paper, performance should be very closely matched.
ANDROID MARSHMALLOW, AND SOLID PERFORMANCE
Here’s the big difference between the older Chinese Redmi Note 4 and the new globally compatible Note 4X: It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor inside, rather than a MediaTek chip. The Redmi Note 4X is almost identical to the international version of the Note 4 released after the Chinese version though. Confused? Don’t be, just remember the Redmi Note 4X is the model to buy, and you’ll be fine. There’s a version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and another with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage space.
The Xiaomi Mi 4C can accept two Micro-SIM cards. It’s a dual-standby model, although both SIM slots can support 4G. Unlike some other Chinese dual-SIM phones we’ve seen, you cannot use the second SIM slot to insert a microSD card.
