Xiaomi Mi 4 size comparison: a 5-incher with ultra thin bezels
After an onslaught of flagship devices that one-up one another in terms of screen size, often going to the absurd, the Xiaomi Mi 4 takes a surprisingly different stand with its 5-inch screen diagonal. It’s a welcome change to see a manufacturer not participate in these endless screen size wars (not to mention the resolution wars), and instead focus on minimizing screen bezel as much as possible to make for a truly compact device that is easier to use with a single hand.

The Xiaomi Mi 4 is just that: it measures just 2.66” wide (67.5mm), much less than all other 5-inch flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One M8t, and Huawei Ascend P7. Such a width, allows your finger to reach the corners of the screen easier, and makes for a more pocketable phone that’s easier to carry around.

And while we don’t know how tall the new Mi 4 is, the illustration below suggests that it is more compact than other flagships in this aspect as well.

Finally, it seems that Xiaomi has settled on 5 inches as the golden standard for its flagships - the Mi 3 had a 5” display, and so does the new Mi 4. For us that’s good news, but what do you think, is a 5” screen large enough for you?

S4 is definitely smaller.

Compactness should include all dimensions.
We don't just reach left and right on our phones.
We also reach up to the top and from the bottom.
Also thickness?

It says the thickness if you read the dimensions...

Have you even looked at the size comparison tool? You can look at all those dimensions there. At least try before you start criticizing things man...

Lame article and stupid size comparison, even by chinese standards. a few MM here and there is not going to make a big difference in the hand.

Mi4 besides being the most compact 5" display flag ship phone aside.

It is also the most affordable flag ship phone even by Chinese phone standard.

The only challenge for me is availability.

I am getting one for sure. Currently rocking with a RedMi Note.

Xperia ZL?

Ok it's wider

8. vincelongman (Posts: 1127; Member since: 10 Feb 2013)


But the ZL is about 1 cm shorter, more noticeable than a mm wider/thicker IMO

5" screen size is more than enough. For me size between 4.5" - 5" is perfect.

HTC One became ugly and taller when they increased the display size.

That Mi-4 may have the thinnest bezels, but it can't step up to the P7 in looks

It has the looks and the performance that can back it up.
It can walk the walk and talk the talk.

Huawei P7 > S4 > One M8 > Mi-4
