Xiaomi Mi4 vs OnePLus One

The smartphone market is full of devices for every pocket. Just because your budget is a little tight right now and you can’t afford that new shiny flagship device that just came out doesn’t mean that you can’t have a great handset. In this comparison, we are helping you choose between the OnePlus One and the Xiaomi Mi4. Both devices come from promising companies and represent more than healthy alternatives to your usual Samsungs and HTCs. That being said, let’s see where each device stands.

OnePlus One

OnePlus was established in December 2013 and has offices in Hong Kong and the Chinese city of Shenzhen. A Chinese company that was founded by Pete Lau, former vice president of the Oppo Electronics, one of the most popular electronics manufacturers in China. Initially, officials argued that the manufacturer is an independent company, but following press revelations have recognized that, in reality, OnePlus is a subsidiary from Oppo.

The screen is built in IPS LCD technology, has a diagonal of 5.5" and Full HD resolution 1920 × 1080 pixels, corresponding to a density of 401 pixels per inch. In light of its dimensions close to those of a phablet, the phone turns to a more limited range of users, who are accustomed to such screens.

According to GSM Arena, the One  measures 152.9 x 75.9 x 8.9 mm and weighs 162 grams. The device has a pretty large 5.5 inch screen that uses a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution alongside the IPS LCD technology to provide you with a high quality image. The pixel density is 401 ppi.

The device operates on the CyanogenMod v11S OS, which has its roots in the 4.4 version of KitKat. Moving on to internal hardware, we have a 2.5 GHz processing unit. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad core chip is paired with the Adreno 330 graphic processor and 3 GB of RAM. The storage capacity is of 16 or 64 GB.

The rear camera on this device packs 13 MP and has the Sony Exymor sensor, while the front facing lens is equipped with 5 MP of its own. The front facing camera is wide-angled (80 degrees), while the back features a dual LED. All these are powered up by the 3100 mAh battery unit which should make the device last an entire day. On Amazon.com, the handset is around $425.

Xiaomi Mi4

Moving on to the 139.2 x 6.5 x 8.9 mm Xiaomi Mi4 which weighs 149 grams, we are talking about a 5 inch screen. The full HD 1920 x 1080 display features full lamination and a 441 ppi pixel density, says GSM Arena. The Mi4 supports Android KitKat with a touch of the MIUI UI. The inside of the handset features the 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801. The Qualcomm quad core chip is paired with the Adreno 330 as well, and 3 GB of RAM. The same internal storage options are available, namely 16 and 64 GB.

When it comes to the rear camera, the Xiaomi Mi 4 is right there next to the OnePlus One, with a 4K –capable 13 MP shooter. The front however surpasses its rival’s, with 8 MP onboard. Even the battery features a greater capacity, with 3800 mAh for you to drain away. The device is around $370 on their website.

Which one of these devices would you choose? Do you think that OnePlus One is better than Xiaomi Mi4 just because of the higher price? Think twice in this regard, you might get overrun by Xiaomi Mi4 fans, as the phone will be one of the most wanted companies in 2015. Let us know your opinions in the comment section below.
