Xiaomi Mi 4c


In the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed quite a number of surprises in the tech world. A few weeks ago, Apple launched the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus with an innovative 3D-Touch display. A couple of weeks after, Google announced the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P, two of the first devices to come preloaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. And only a couple of days after that, LG revealed the amazing V10 which comes two screens and two front cameras.

And just when we thought we’ve seen it all, the Xiaomi Mi 4c came along, wanting some of the attention for itself. Xiaomi has grown to be a popular smartphone manufacturer in the Chinese market, giving smartphone giants like Samsung, LG and HTC a scare. Xiaomi is known to offer budget smartphones with premium features at affordable prices, and as a result, it has grown popular amongst smartphone users.

The Mi 4c was announced last week in September and is one of those budget phones Xiaomi offers that come with its own fair share of premium features.

Xiaomi Mi 4c is a 5.0-incher with an IPS LCD display and a 1080 x 1920p resolution (441 pixels per inch). It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset and a Hexa-core processor (quad-core 1.44 GHz and dual-core 1.82 GHz).

The Xiaomi Mi 4c runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop based MIUI 7. The camera on this device is pretty spectacular; there is a 13-megapixel camera and a dual-LED flash at the back of this device, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera in front.

Spot the Dual-LED Flash?


The Xiaomi Mi 4c has two variants, the first runs on 2GB of RAM and has internal memory of 16GB. The second variant runs on 3GB of RAM and has internal memory of 32GB. However, there is no microSD slot available to expand memory, something phone users might find unsettling.

This device also comes with a USB Type-C plug, a new USB standard that allows for charging and data transfer. Underneath the Mi 4c lies a 3080 mAh battery which is said to charge 40% in 60 minutes with the Quick Charge 2.0 feature.

Surely, with these features Xiaomi is in a bid to to impress us, and they have been persistent so far. Just last week, it was announced that the Xiaomi Mi 5 will beat other flagships, including the Samsung Galaxy S7, to be the first device to run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820.

  • Emmm, the past weeks are quite exciting with new Smartphones Releases. I believe these Smartphone Manufacturers are stepping up their game because if You don’t, You’ll be left on the sidelines and probably lose your customers . (Maybe 🙂 ) Well About the Xiaomi Mi 4c, It’s a good Smartphone and Relatively affordable as well. The specifications are okay for that price. Xiaomi on their way to be a Top Global Smartphone Manufacturer.

  • I love the 3080 mAh battery which means the phone would last longer and the fast charge feature too…Great Device

  • Nice phone,nice specs..I think this phone has the capacity and capability to give d top smartphone producers a run for their money.. But I don’t think it is tested and trusted in the Nigerian mobile market tho

  • @ Obende Oladele Faithful, LOL But It’s not a Nigerian Mobile Manufacturer but China rather. Main reason why it has not been tested or trusted yet. However You can order and get it ship and let us know your experience and review 🙂

  • @ Olatubosun Agnes, I’m not a good volunteer. Besides, Faithful can do that without complains. Actually I’m yet to ship my first item purchased Outside Nigeria. Still looking forward to a post on that. So you wanna help :)?

  • The Xiaomi Mi 4C is possibly the best Possibly the
    best Snapdragon 808 smartphone
    out there. It is a device that performs just as equal as the likes of
    LG’s G4 and costs much less in the process. The Xiaomi Mi 4C is the smartphone everyone should have.
