The Xiaomi Mi 4 aces our battery life benchmark, will last you for two days
posted by Chris P. / Dec 08, 2014, 3:02 AM
We have some good news. The Mi 4 managed the very impressive 8 hours 32 minutes thanks to its healthy 3080 mAh embedded battery. In the real world, this score translates into two days of usage, so long as you aren't going nuts with what you put the phone through. In other words, you won't get two days of N.O.V.A. 3 gaming, but if you cycle between some browsing and texting, a call here and there, and some light gaming and music listening on your bus trip back home after work, the Mi 4 will get you there.
So, where does this put the Mi 4? In some pretty elite company, actually, as it's only outdone by longevity champs such as the Motorola DROID Turbo, along with the Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact. Said otherwise, Xioami's Mi 4 gets an A+ on this particular test.
As for recharging time (also an important metric), the phone needed 126 minutes to go from zero to 100%. This, again, puts the Mi4 in the top quarter of our ranking – we've seen better, but we've also seen worse.
Stay tuned for our review!

They sure can become the no.1 mobile manufacturer in 5~10 years if other companies don't change the way they are today. I'm glad Xiaomi and other chinese companies are around. corporates are getting really greedy these days.

Hip hip hooray, 2014 has been an awesome year for battery life. Thank you Sony, Samsung, HTC, Huawei, OnePlus and now Xiaomi and Meizu. LG gets an honourable mention for the 2013 G2. Fingers crossed OEMs start pushing for "3 day battery life".

I am starting to question phonearena's battery tests Motorla droid turbo doesn't offer such an impressive battery life,almost every other site said the battery life isn't anything special.

Its has a great battery because its a 5 inch phone with 3000 mah.. ... Gald xiaomi is not moving to 5.5 inch or the qhd screens and its paying them dividends rather then jumping into a specs war

iphone 6 is a complete rip off ey. paying so many stacks when u can get so many s-phones that r just as good for half the price. In this day and age most smartphones r more than capable of handling everything that you throw at em. I got nothing against iphones other than poor battery life and ridiculously highly priced devices
