Affordable Xiaomi Mi 4i now available globally (though not directly from Xiaomi)
Xiaomi recently released a new and affordable Android smartphone called Mi 4i, but it only launched it in India and a few other Asian markets. However, now you can buy the handset from almost anywhere in the world thanks to Uniqbe, a Hong Kong-based third-party retailer that's accepting international orders.

While the Mi 4i costs around $200 in India, it's not that cheap at Uniqbe. The retailer is asking $240 for the smartphone, plus shipping - which can go up to around $50 - $60 (depending on where you live). All in all, you can buy the new Xiaomi handset for about $300 unlocked. But that's still not a bad price, considering the features that the Mi 4i is offering.

Running Android Lollipop customized with Xiaomi's MIUI 6 UI, the Mi 4i sports a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and has dual SIM support. It's powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, further featuring: a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage space (not expandable), and a 3120 mAh battery. Recently, the smartphone received a software update that solved an overheating issue. Will you be buying one?

First one! What would be better to buy- this xiaomi or Elephone P7000 for $160-200 or Oppo Find 7 for a bit more- I think it's $400?

Buy OPPO Find 7a instead. It has better battery life than Find 7 and ofcourse Find 7/7a are flagship devices (from last year), but above all, where i live Find 7a retails for $270 only. I don't think anything can beat that

I think Meizu M1 note from is a better option at $219. MTK MT6752 is a capable SoC without the heating issue.

There are many resellers listed mi 4i now and I would like to choose the reputable one like Geekbuying, They are listing it at 259.99USD with free shipping. Added on the 6% anniversary code. Price would be nice.

I'd recommend not to buy Mi4i.. my friend has it and it's not good, UI is laggy, he constantly complains about SIM card detection and he is not happy with the phone at all.
