The Mi4 is built around a metal frame, with Corning glass at the front and a replaceable, scratch-proof back cover. It measures 139.2 x 68.5 x 8.9mm, but the curved sides make it look a bit thinner. It sports a 3080mAh battery (non-removable) and some pretty amazing camera optics. We’ve come to expect exquisite build quality from Xiaomi, and the Mi4 Overseas Edition does not disappoint. It looks and feels like a proper Mi4 flagship, nothing has changed on the outside. The Qualcomm chip is backed by a generous 3GB of RAM, and a nice all-round spec in general. Bottom line: If you don’t need 4G connectivity, the Xiaomi Mi4W offers exceptional value for money, and we can’t think of any other device that can come close in terms of performance and value. Here you’ll find the unboxing of this amazing smartphone. Thanks to Gearbest.com online store for sending the sample, you can buy it from here.
