Xiaomi Mi 3 vs Xiaomi Mi 4: Winners and sinners

 

The Xiaomi Mi 3, one of the most popular smartphones in China, is up against its own successor, the Mi 4. Two generations ready to clash: boxes opened, benchmarks loaded, audio on, cameras rolling, batteries charged.

For the record, these two phones are, officially, only available in China and the Asia Pacific. They can be purchased online and shipped to Europe hassle-free though and we think the build and features for the price will get enough people interested.

Xiaomi Mi 3 Review

 

If you look at it, the Xiaomi Mi 3 isn't exactly ground breaking in terms of hardware and specs and there are other brands who can offer better. It's a worthy flagship device, no doubt, but it is far from the likes of the new Android titans like the...

Chinese cult smash is well worth a risky import buy

Superb power for the price ; Impressive camera ; Good battery life

Only available via import ; Base speaker easily muffled ; Some Chinese text

Plenty of fun can be had with the Xiaomi Mi3, but the standout has to be the software. Week by week, idea by idea, Xiaomi has fleshed out its vision of Android, until it has evolved into own comprehensive solution. For people who enjoy configuring the...

Xiaomi Mi3 Review

 

Xiaomi Mi3 is the latest Android Smartphone from the Chinese phonemaker. It comes as a Moto G Killer.

• Sleek & light weight ; • Impressive Mi Interface ; • Beautiful aluminum-magnesium built ; • Good Battery life ; • Snappy Performance ; • NFC included ; • Value for money
