Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi 4s

81.5% Xiaomi Mi 4s Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
High-end phone for a mainstream price. The Mi 4s makes a strong case for spending $300 USD on a new smartphone instead of $600 or $700 for a top-of-the-line model. Find out how the Xiaomi compares to both mainstream and flagship competitors.
85% A great smartphone that feels misplaced within Xiaomi's lineup
Source: Android Authority English
There is no doubt that the Xiaomi Mi 4S is a great smartphone, especially for the price. Despite its flaws of a lack of global availability, disappointing low-light camera performance, and an outdated version of Android, there are several reasons why the Mi 4S may be appealing. Its very nice display, impressive performance for the price, excellent battery life, and great daylight camera performance may be enough to win over many who would have instead purchased the Mi 5.

Xiaomi Mi 4s review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Xiaomi Mi 4s goes right by the book and pays due respect to its predecessors while genuinely trying to stand out and increase its chances of getting noticed. The Mi 4s improves on both the original Xiaomi Mi 4 and the Mi 4c version with more - and expandable - storage, a beefier battery and a fingerprint sensor.
