Design

The full HD 5 inch display is strikingly lively and has excellent viewing angles. The best part is that it offers good visibility in outdoors. Viewing angles are great too, with the image losing fidelity only at extremely sharp angles.

Performance and Hardware

Under the hood, you’ll find Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 chip-set and its four 2.5 GHz Krait 400 processor cores, which gives you 14% more computing speed. Nearly 2 times faster in image processing than its predecessor, it has an unrivaled ability to handle several complex tasks while maximizing battery life, thanks to its super energy-efficient Hexagon DSP core.

Great photos in milliseconds. Sony’s IMX 214 13MP Exmor RS stacked image sensor collects more light through a 6-element lens and autofocuses in just 0.3 seconds. With a large f/1.8 aperture, Mi 4 delivers great low-light performance and bokeh effects. Give Magic Focus mode a try – just snap an image and choose your point-of-focus later. It’s magic!

Overall Verdict

  • Superb price for all that hardware
  • Great screen at 1080p
  • Good build quality
