MI4 is a powerful phone given by xiaomi to users, being a quad core with a 3GB RAM and adreno 330 GPU.

With these specs, this phone is capable of high end gaming and also comes with a nice camera of 13 MP with LED flash.MI4 is priced at 20,000 on Flipkart and has internal memory of 16GB with no option for external SD slot.

Its OS is obviously android kitkat with a MiUi skin. Its perfect to use for longer times given its battery is of 3080 mAh.

So that's what xiaomi provides to users in MI4. Let's now hear what the MI4 users are saying.
These reviews are collected from various sites and these are as per their own experiences.

Reviews from FlipKart:

1] This phone is a heating bar
  -Look and feel is fantastic. Screen resolution is also very good. The big issue is heat. I have used this phone for 2 days and I feel my ears are burning.
  -Phone is getting over heated and emits burning smell after 14 min video recording
  -Initially we felt an uncomfortable heat after 3 minutes of video recording, after 14 minutes we noticed my phone is getting over heated and emits burning smell.
2] Heating issue while charging.
 Battery issue, 3080 mah should last 1.5 days, however barely lasts a day.
 Very few genuine accessories available right now, need to wait, flipkart should work on this.

3] It produce more heat when I use to talk less then 5 minutes. It generates more heat when I use camera. But phone is very stylish in the front, very good UI and its features all good. If they reduced the heat, and they provided the expandable memory slot and they reduced the price it will be the top.

 4] -it heats like hell when we play games.
For eg: when i played asphat 8 for 2 minutes then i checked its temperature it was more than 50 c
 -its camera gives greenish and yellowish effect when we use its flash light specially in room light condition or in no light condition .it will make your face fully yellowish when you will use its flash light but In daylight condition (without flash light) it capture good photos.
 -some who are thinking that this is 4g device are wrong . this is 3g device (old version) (not 4g lte)

According to these reviews the users are experiencing problems about heat emit from the phone I guess the battery is not keeping up with this powerful specs.
5] REVIEW AFTER USING 1 WEEK.............
Best things
- Awsm selfie phone.
- A display with 441 ppi means what??? really came to know after using it.
- Battery life 1.5 day with 20-30 camera clicks & 24 hrs 2g net....too good for me.
- Gaming / touch feel/ video recording experience very good.
- Universal remote...easy to operate T.V.

Areas to be improved
- 13 MP rear camera - pics below expectations when watch in computer
- Bakwaas music/ sound (biggest concern)
- Not good for Low light photography.
- No headphone with phone.
- Little bit heating issue while u charging the mobile (if mobile is not shut down).

Amazing and powerful
have no issues with the handset..for me it is simply the best and is working perfectly without any issues..yes the battery may be a bit over-rated

6] Awesome phone in within 20k

Light in weight inspite of metal body.
Superb finishing
touch is very sensitive
display is vibrant and viewing angle is awesome.
Camera quality is too good for both Back and Front.
Many little but awesome features in MIUI6


16 GB memory and not expandable (12.3 user available) which reaches 10 GB with few basic apps

Battery will take almost 3 hrs to full charge

Back is so slippery you will need back cover immediately

All in all its much much better than many phones which comes in 30-40k price range

7] Amazing product
Awesome product. Worth for money.
Front camera is good. Battery is slightly over-rated. Doesn't behave the way it should.
There seems to be some issue with Whatsapp notifications doesn't comes up timely. I know XIOMI will fix this.
All in all amazing product. Better than all the products in the price range.
More I use it more i fell in love with it.

8] Smoooooth...worth every penny
Working as efffectively and smoothly as the hype of the phone. Very good gaming experience.

Drawbacks: Internal memory, Not the whole body is of metal. There is only the metal rim around like iphone.

In this price range, this is undoubtedly damn good phone.

These are some of the full description reviews of MI4 users which might be useful to you if you are planning to buy a MI4.
This phone is rated as 3.9 at average on Flipkart and according to me in spite of  heated battery on occasions, this phone is worth to buy. In this price range this phone still has big user base.
