displayJust like the rest "4p" the Mi-series, also the 4c via a large touch screen with 5-inch screen. The resolution is full HD and has thus 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. This is now common in the luxury segment. The pixel density is 441 ppi. There's only a magnifying glass to perceive individual points.Corning Gorilla glass ensures that the display is protected from scratches. The colors are crisp - and thanks to the "Sunlight Technology" can be read also in the sunshine quite well.
OS: MIUI V7 on Android 5.1The operating system MIUI V7 software developers of Xiaomi have based on Android made 5.1 several changes. Everything looks very tidy, and there are almost countless individual settings. So you can align the system extremely personal. Even the color of the message LEDs for different information types you can define yourself. Anyone who sees the OS, can not believe that under the hood an Android system is running. A special feature is that Xiaomi simultaneously cooperates with Microsoft - and now has 4c presented a first version of the Mi with Windows 10th Back about Android, the mobile phone currently in fact (and only) is available. It is on one hand nice that Xiaomi has made the effort to develop a possible stylish yet uncluttered user interface. On the other hand, only the English version is initially available. A surface in German is planned or in progress, but is missing the time being.
"Standard" and "Advanced": Available in two variantsXiaomiMi brings 4c in two versions. The difference lies in the amount of internal memory.
- The "Standard Edition" has 16 GB for apps and data. Is available for those who just the features a fast smartphones want but do not need as much memory.
- The slightly better "Advanced Edition" is suitable with 32GB of internal memory for apps with larger data hungry. In addition, of course, leave it to store more videos, music tracks and images.
Camera with 13 million pixelsLandscapes, party and portraits? Thanks to the camera with 13 million pixels and Aperture 2 can shoot good photos. The sensor ermölicht even in low light still amazing results. If it is too dark, the LED flash fires. As you would expect in smartphones with high resolution cameras, the Mi also offers the opportunity to record video in Full HD resolution. And if an incident occurs too fast, second is possible by slow motion to 120 frames per. The front camera puts it in 5 million pixels - enough for selfies.
Mobile InternetAs befits a high-end smartphone, can surf with LTE speed with the Xiaomi Mi 4c. However, the corresponding block is not the 800 MHz band available, often in rural areas is used in Germany. To see the list of possible network connections in mobile communications from:
- 2G: GSM 850/900/1800 / 1900MHz
- 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900 / 2100MHz
- 4G: LTE FDD-1800/2100 / 2600MHz
processorFor the computing power in Mi 4c a 64-bit Snapdragon 808 makes Hexa-core processor. The name says it all: the arithmetic unit operates with six cores. They cooperate in the so-called Big.Little process. Two of the cores Cortex A57. With 1.8GHz they assume the most compute-intensive work. When less power is demanded? Then jump a four Cortex A-53 cores. This can work significantly more power efficient. So the Phone on the one hand absorb power spikes, but then consume little energy. As a graphic unit which is Adreno 418 GPU. It supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX feature level 11_1. The clock rate is 600 MHz. This is one of the Adreno 418 even for high-end class. The graphical performance should be enough to play graphically demanding games in high resolution display. The processor is compared to about 30% slower than its big brother, the Adreno 430 Snapdragon in 810th
battery packPleasing for a mobile phone of the 5-inch class: The 3000 mAh battery provides ample power.That should be enough to get high processor performance without standing looking at the power display to surf and make phone calls. Especially if you use not simple applications, can ensure a longer battery life as noted, too, the A-53 cores.
SIM slotsThe Mi 4c has only one SIM tray on the left top of the page.It can accommodate 2 Micro-SIM cards. This is pure SIM courts. Unlike hybrid slots that could be used either for 2 SIM or a microSD memory card.
memoryThe device has unfortunately absolutely no slot for an external memory card. This property have more mobile phones. is even more important that you choose an internal memory which is sufficient for their own needs.Alternatively, you can also use cloud storage.
USB Type CPractical and smartphones still very rare: the Mi 4c has a USB connection "type C". This means that it is symmetrically constructed. You can cable no longer "upside" Connect since the upper and lower sides are equal now.
designSome say that Xiaomi with the Mi-series also aims to provide Apple products Paroli, in terms of design. Now, certain similarities can not be ruled out. But the 4c can also score seen for yourself. At 7.8 mm it is relatively thin and weighs in at this size still good 132 g The plastic the back - probably due to the low price - is available in five colors. Black, white, blue, yellow and pink. We find that the smartphone looks much better than its price would suggest.
ConclusionNo question, the Xiaomi Mi 4c is promising. It looks good, does a lot and has a lot to offer technically. And this is at a price that can fade comparable smartphones. It's just a pity that the important in Germany 800 tape is not covered. So smartphone is more recommendable for the City.
