Xiaomi released Mi4 in Beijing

Every year , Xiaomi introduces new smartphones in the annual events and this year it’s turn to Mi 4.

Mi4

Let’s check with the specs first:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.5GHz processor
  • 3GB LP-DDR3 RAM
  • 16/64GB eMMC 5.0
  • 5-inch 1080p Sharp / JDI OGS full lamination display
  • 13MP rear and 8MP front Sony stacked CMOS camera
  • 3080 mAh Lithium-ion polymer battery

Is it surprising you? Well, I know most people are not because we have seen the similar specs on several smartphones already, such as OnePlus One,Samsung Galaxy S5 and some other popular flagship products. In fact some manufactures have released the upgraded version of products which use Snapdragon 805 instead.

Top performance? Or just being ONE of it?

Revised MaxisONE™ plan

Compared to the old plan,MaxisONE Plan now has the real limitlessness for all local calls & SMS while MaxisONE Plan Lite only enjoys for the On-Net calls & SMS.

It can’t be denied that Maxis definitely makes better plans and it does attract some group of people who are still busy calling/SMS every day. I believe youngsters will not be interested in these plans as they’re living with data. Continue reading
