    Super smart deals offers this phone in just 7K. I want to buy from here. Please suggest should i trust them ?

  • NikhilPawar

    @Gouse Pasha MI 4I  is the best

  • Gouse Pasha

    can anyone suggest which is best one in between Asus Zenfone 2 ZE550ML vs Xiaomi Mi4i? which has best camera?

  • Jayanand Supali

    that 13 Mp cam produces image of 5Mb size. then there might be some music you would like to have. Next the apps and the app data. oh did i forget, if you ever felt like recoding Full HD videos. Those take a lot of space. In essence 16gb internal memory is just not enough!!!! Its a big let down to have a good hardware phone with such a miniscule memory. Am using Mi3 with 16gb and am almost always hitting the bottom end of the internal memory. Its god damn painful. never again a phone with 16gb memory am gonna buy.

  • Pratyush Jhingran

    They forgot to write about , India specific- vissual IVR in the 4i . . . That was just mind blowing, how Barra illustrated it using indian railways.
    And also, that the 2nd gen. SD 615 is designed by Qualcom INDIA.

  • Divyank Sachdeva

    which one to buy now .. yureka / MI4i or asus zenfone 2 (2gb) vairiant ?

    • Pratyush Jhingran

      If Yu care more about performance ONLY!! go for 4i
      Else , if YU are missing : expendable memory , familiar andoid UI , & bigger screen , go for Yureka (YU must consider, both phones are expected to have almost same camera capabilities)

      • Divyank Sachdeva

        And what about the zenfone 2 2gb variant ?

        • Pratyush Jhingran

          If YU just need a phone, then go with Zen. . . & if YU want to geek/tweak your phone, play high games, & also have a powerbank! YU need yureka(like me) . . . Else if, YU DON’T use too much apps/data storage. . Mi 4i is for yu (like my dad)

        • Divyank Sachdeva

          ok.. Thats the reason you(YU) are promoting yureka..because yu have it
          and for the camera I would say that The camera in the MI4i has F/1.8 (front 5mp) and F/2.0 (back 13mp) and the yureka has a 13mp F/2.2 camera .. In other words MI4i has an advantage in camera , processor and display when compared with yureka
          But the only drawback in MI4i is that there is no support for external SD card

        • Divyank Sachdeva

          I have used YU for about 7-8 days and there are still some bugs after the cm12 update and if YU are saying that the camera is the major selling than try to use that camera at night or in low light , YU will come to know about the actual camera quality of the phone.. But still its a good phone at that price tag

        • Pratyush Jhingran

          Low light is almost same thing on all 3 of them

      • Divyank Sachdeva

        And the mi4i has a much better camera than that of yureka.

        • Pratyush Jhingran

          MAY! be YU r wrong. . . . . Coz. . . Yureka’s camera is one of its major selling point!!! N m pretty sure. . . Tht if YU compare both cameras . . Yureka may win OR will be almost equal to 4i
          So. . . There’s nothing to compare in camera department.

  • Which one is better yureka or mi4i

  • Rahul Srivastava

    Wow, this is going to sell like hot cakes!
    Does it have expandable storage?

    • Naser Mohd Baig

      That is the main question, if it doesn’t have expandable storage, then I am not going to buy it.
