Many fans were expecting the release of the Xiaomi Mi 5, when instead they got the Xiaomi Mi 4c. However, the 4c was not something they were expecting – they actually liked it. It surprised loyal Xiaomi mobile enthusiasts with a device that is so good that is mentally impossible for them to resist. Even though the 4c looks exactly the same as the Mi 4i, inside the mobile phone is a completely different story.
The Xiaomi Mi 4c is a Very Likeable Handset That Came Out of the Blue
The Xiaomi Mi 4c is widely advertised by its fast charging capabilities. It uses a Fast Charging-enabled USB Type-C port. Inside the device is a powerful Snapdragon 808 chip for processing power. Other than these, the camera also has an upgrade. It is now capable of shooting high resolution panoramic images and it is also able to capture higher resolution slow-motion videos. The package also includes a refreshed and stylish MIUI v7.
Other key features of the Xiaomi Mi 4c phone are its 5-inch display that has 1080p resolution at 441ppi pixel density. The rear snapper has a 13-megapixel imaging sensor with phase detection autofocus, plus dual-LED dual-tone flash. The video recording functions of the device can capture 1080p resolution videos at 30 frames-per-second. For the front camera, there is a 5-megapixel snapper which provides adequately sharp selfies. The front camera can also record 1080p videos at 30 frames-per-second.
Interested people who want to purchase the Mi 4c can choose between a 16GB or 32GB model. This is then one of the biggest downsides of the phone as there are no expandable memory card slots. Hence, when you purchase the device with either internal memory packages, that’s the only storage you’re going to get.
Other features include a dual-microphone (for active noise cancelling), a superb 3,080mAh non-removable battery, GPS, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1 ,and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/c connectivity, and even an FM radio is built-in.
For those who have already experienced what the Mi 4i is capable of, you might not be sure if you would want to get the Xiaomi Mi 4c. While the Mi 4c is beautiful and comfy to use, it does rise above its predecessor in terms of performance. It also has an amazing still camera and an easy-to-use MIUI v7 interface. That being said, if you want to upgrade from your 4i to the 4c, then be prepared to shell out about the same price as the LG G4 would have on its price tag.
