Overall: 4/5 Battery: 4/5 Space: 3/5 Performance: 4.5/5 features: 4/5 Camera: 4/5 Display: 3.5/5 I'm using this phone for more than year and a half now, and till date I've not visited service centre. The quality is great. The phone still gets regular updates and there are leaks that this phone will also get the Android N update soon. MI has its own ROM which is also updated regularly (currently MIUI8). The phone is value for money.
The Good
  • Both the front and back camera are good for picture you can view my instagram page www.instagram.com/jainvirang.
  • Battery is good. It lasts for whole day while using 4G data along with playing games like clash royale and clash of clans. Though it takes time to get charged, say about an hour and a half.
  • Mi provides 5GB free storage.
  • Once the sync is on the gallery photos are automatically uploaded to the MI drive and only the compressed version (Ratio ~ 11%) is left in the phone. The best feature provided by MI only.
  • The phone looks sleek and slim. It has no waste area around the screen.
The Bad
  • The touch is not that great, though it suffices the purpose.
  • The Phone gets easily heated up
  • The screen is not gorilla glass, so you will have to buy a tempered glass.
  • The space is only 16 GB and usable is only 12.77GB. Apps takes the major memory
