If you have been following the trends in smartphone market in India, you are already aware how many different players or smartphone makers are now battling in the field for Indian consumers’ attention. Out of these, there are several companies that entered Indian market very recently but have already gained much popularity.
One of these, undoubtedly, is the Chinese brand Xiaomi. Xiaomi phones have been steadily rising in popularity because of providing high-end specifications and good features packed in nice looking and affordable device.
Recently, Xiaomi has unveiled a brand new smartphone that’s already being compared to iPhones.
This brand new smartphone device by Xiaomi is XIAOMI Mi4C 4G Smartphone. It is available in a Standard Edition and Advanced Edition. The two editions vary in terms of RAM and ROM, while most other specifications are same.
So let’s see what XIAOMI Mi4C 4G Smartphone has:
Design: Mi4C 4G is a big screen smartphone that’s packed in a slim and stylish body. The minimalistic design gives the device a sophisticated appearance. The camera and the flash are both located very close to a corner, allowing the back cover to have a clean look. The Power Key and the Volume Rocker are located on the right edge of the device. The device boasts of having a very slim bezel so there’s minimal distraction from the screen and thus the viewing experience is enhanced. There are three small and simple soft keys at the bottom of the screen. As for size, this device with its 5 inch display measures 13.81 x 6.96 x 0.78 cm / 5.43 x 2.74 x 0.31 inches and weighs 0.126 kg.
Specifications: As nice looking as this phone is, mere looks don’t make a smartphone good. It’s the specifications that matter. Well, 5.0 inch XIAOMI Mi4C 4G Smartphone is equipped with Snapdragon 808 64-bit Hexa Core 1.8GHz processor. It has Android 5.1 operating system. The rear camera is 13.0MP and the front camera is 5.0MP. The Standard edition ash 16GB ROM and 2GB RAM. The Advanced Edition has 32GB ROM and 3GB RAM. It has 3080mAh Lithium-ion Polymer non-removable battery with Quick Charge feature. And it is a 4G Dual SIM phone.
Features: And now about some of its interesting features. Besides all the basic features like browsing, media playing, voice recording, GPS, FM Radio, Flashlight, Ebook reading and MS Office or other document processing app compatibility, it also has some unique and interesting features. The one I found most interesting is called the Edge Tap. This feature allows the user to give commands to the phone by just tapping on the edges. For example, with just a single tap on the edge, users can click a photo. Double tap gives the Back command to the phone. The device can also perform as a remote control for your other devices. And the setting up of this Infrared remote built into the device requires just three simple steps. There are several other useful features also, for example waking up the phone with just double tapping on the screen.
