Xiaomi Mi4 vs iPhone 6 – The Battle Between Giants

Apple can’t be defeated easily. Samsung tried and failed and now Xiaomi is challenging the “God of smartphones”. The popularity of Xiaomi increased along with the Mi3 phone, which was well-received on the Indian market. To understand better the impact of the Xiaomi Mi3, imagine 100,000 people fighting to get their hands on one of the 20,000 units, the stock “evaporating” in a few seconds. Now, it’s Mi4’s turn to break the barriers, and there are no obstacles in its way to the top. The 320 dollars price tag, the high end features, these are the characteristics of the new model from Xiaomi, which makes it the next possible threat to Apple’s iPhone 6.

Everybody is eyes and ears on iPhone 6’s release and the analysts from Morgan Stanley are very confident about the success of this phone. The positive recommendations about this new product line helped Apple to breach the 100 dollars/share mark in August, but the things are not set in stone, as many competitors are trying to steal Apple’s crown. And Xiaomi is considered to be a big threat.

Xiaomi Mi4 vs iPhone 6

Growing up fast

Xiaomi is the new leader in China starting from the second quarter of 2014, surpassing Samsung’s smartphone shipments. According to Canalys, Xiaomi took over 14% of the Chinese market, while Samsung, Yulong and Lenovo took only 12%. In 2013, Xiaomi’s market share was 5% in China, then in the Q1 of 2014 it increased up to 7% and the forecasts are favorable for the Chinese company.

Gorgeous features, low price

The Mi4 costs only 320/325 dollars, but it comes with incredible features: a 5inches Full HD display, a powerful Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM. It’s fast as Samsung’s Galaxy S5 smartphone and can compete with Apple’s iPhone 6 as well. The pricing can differ from carrier to carrier, but the Mi4 is still one of the cheapest high-end handsets.

The Mi3 model vanished from the Indian markets, more than 20,000 units being sold within a few seconds on August 19, and the fans have one more sale opportunity on August 26.

Xiaomi MI4 has a 5-inch Full HD screen, 3 GB RAM, Snapdragon 801 processor, quad-core 2.5 Ghz and a 3080 milliamp battery. The camera has 13 megapixels and the front camera comes with no less than 8 megapixels.

Xiaomi is approaching 40 million units sold this year.

iPhone 6 will be introduced by Apple on September 9 and will have two variants - 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches. The device might also have a screen based on sapphire and a new processor. All this sends us to one question - how expensive is the phone?

According to analyst Peter Misek of Jeffries, the next iPhone will come with a price greater than ever before, according to a report sent to "Huffington Post". Misek said that his sources indicate that Apple has started to negotiate with operators to increase the subscription price of the device with $100.

What else is there to the rumor? According to MacRumours, 4.7 inch phone will arrive first on the market in September and the 5.5 inch will be in stores by the end of autumn. Screen size and features of the new iPhone could increase the price. And there is the possibility that the iPhone to have similar rates to operators, but to be more expensive when purchased without a subscription.

So the iPhone 6 could cost $800 without a subscription, but will go up to 1000-1100 dollars without a subscription to the best performing variant. It's not hard to imagine that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will cost from 900 to 1000 euros.
