Xiaomi Mi 4s Smartphone Review

 

High-end phone for a mainstream price. The Mi 4s makes a strong case for spending $300 USD on a new smartphone instead of $600 or $700 for a top-of-the-line model. Find out how the Xiaomi compares to both mainstream and flagship competitors.

high quality display; accurate colors and grayscale ; fast storage performance ; USB Type-C (2.0 speeds) ; thin profile; sleek design ; high capacity battery ; fingerprint reader ; bright backlight ; good camera ; lightweight ; IR remote ; dual SIM

MicroSD slot shared with secondary SIM slot ; slight throttling under extreme stress ; haptic feedback could be stronger ; backlight could be more uniform ; non-removable battery ; very warm under load ; average battery life ; no NFC or MHL ; slippery...

Xiaomi Mi 4S Review

 

With the addition of another Mi, Xiaomi has expanded their lineup but does the Mi 4S deliver on its promise like its siblings? Here's our Mi 4S review!

Xiaomi Mi 4s review: China’s Nexus 5X

 

The star of the current Xiaomi smartphone lineup is clearly the Mi 5. As this new flagship made headlines at Mobile World Congress 2016, the Chinese manufacturer quietly announced the Xiaomi Mi 4s – a direct competitor to the Nexus 5X. Will this be a...

Good workmanship and high-quality looks ; Solid performance ; Fast and reliable fingerprint sensor ; Good battery life

Slippery, fingerprint magnet back cover ; Average photo quality ; No LTE band 20 (800 MHz)

The Xiaomi Mi 4s is a good and solid smartphone with fantastic battery life. Unfortunately, my overall viewpoint is clouded by an average camera and display, which lacks in brightness.
