Xiaomi Mi4 - First impressions

It is certainly exciting to be able to touch the Xiaomi Mi4 with your hand so few days after the presentation. The smartphone is, in fact, the flagship device of one of the companies that symbolize Chinese technology itself, so expectations are very high.

But before deepening the feelings of this first hands-on we will talk about the structure of the device quickly.

The dimensions of the Xiaomi Mi4 are of 139.2 x 67.5 x 8.9 mm for a total weight of 149 grams including battery.

Compared to the previous Top of the Range, the Xiaomi Mi3, for the Mi4 the company seems to have worked a lot on the design and, in particular, it has done so by minimizing the thickness of the side frames, which, associated with more rounded corners, make the device very comfortable in the grip and much easier to use with one hand. From all this comes a much better user experience than that offered by the Xiaomi Mi3, whose excessive frames represented a sore point, in the context of a device that is still excellent.

Classic positioning of the control keys (power button on / off and stand-by and volume rocker) all on the right side of the smartphone, as per Xiaomi tradition.

On the left side there is the only removable tray for the single micro SIM.

The first thing you notice is that the design represents a real change compared to the previous Xiaomi Mi3 and to the other smartphones of the company. Without a doubt, there are inspirations from other products, but the result is a smartphone with a truly beautiful, well-finished and overall original design. Attention to detail is now a hallmark for Xiaomi products, but the Mi4 could be the company's most aesthetically pleasing smartphone

The body of the Xiaomi Mi4 is made with a durable aluminum frame and I must say that the solidity of the phone is easily perceptible even during this first contact.

The first impressions are of course focusing on the design of the device, which, for the cure I have already mentioned in the premise, immediately catches the attention. For any other type of assessment we refer to the full review, which will come after the classic period of intense use.

The premise because this smartphone reveals a top of range of excellent quality are all there. The hardware is top-of-the-range, the dimensions are contained, at least for today's standards, the design is very nice and cautious, although clearly inspired by other products, and the MIUI V6 promises great novelties. Also the good-quality battery and the Snapdragon 801 processor could offer considerable autonomy. In the course of the review we will see how the Mi4 behaves in all its aspects, also considering the result of the remarkable advances made in the photographic sector.

The full review will come as soon as we have completed our in-depth tests. Be ready!
