The Xiaomi Mi4S, like the original Mi4, utilizes glass on the front and back of the smartphone – a trend that has become during its year of release that other manufacturers have also followed with, such as Samsung and Sony.
The beautiful glass front and back of the smartphone sandwiches an elegant solid metal frame that has a very unique zirconia sand finish. The sand finish gives the smartphone the feeling of a soft leathery grip – it feels great when held in the hand. The rear glass panel is just a simple glossy rear surface however. It has diagonal brushed patterns that give it a little bit of a viewing texture, accompanied by metal accents on the ergonomically placed fingerprint sensor and camera lens.
But regardless of its beautiful metal frame and glass panels, the Xiaomi Mi4S is ultimately a very slim and lightweight phone that fits in every pocket and bag with ease.
The Xiaomi Mi4S comes with a fingerprint scanner for an added layer of security in addition to the passwords, PIN codes, and pattern unlocks that are built-in the smartphone. The fingerprint s canner of the Xiaomi Mi4S is placed in an ergonomic position: right at the back of the smartphone where a finger would commonly rest on. This makes it natural and easy to unlock the smartphone, and you can have it ready by the time you lift it up to your eyes from your pocket.
The Xiaomi Mi4S may seem like a very slim smartphone, but it does not skimp out on packing in a massive 3260 mAh batter. The massive battery allows the Xiaomi Mi4S to have a full day’s worth of battery life, with up to 10 hours of video playback time. It’s a smartphone that stays powered all day long for you.
The long battery life can also be credited to the efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor that powers the entire device, but without sacrificing any form of performance whatsoever.
