    I like the XIAOMI MI4, it carries 13MP Sony camera, Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.5GHz chipset, 3GB RAM, 16GB ROM, Android 6.0 OS and 3080mAh battery; It is one of the best smartphones around $160. You want to know what else smartphones have the reputation? Search “best smartphone around $160” on youtube, you will find the comparison video among XIAOMI Mi4, Oukitel k6000 pro, K10000 and Letv Le 1s smartphone.

    there are 2 ROMs for Xiaomi smartphones. One is stable and other is Developer. The Developer ROM recently got updated to Marshmallow and people on Chinese version of the Developer ROM have received the Marshmallow update. While the users on Global version of developer rom are yet to get Android 6.
    as for the stable version, it'll take around 4-6 months to receive Marshmallow for both the Chinese & global variant.
    Users are free to choose their respective ROM i.e Developer or Stable & both can be downloaded from the official miui website i.e

  • Not update in norway 😢

  • fake news....using mi4 and updates

  • I can confirm the Android 6.0 update, Xiaomi is doing a closed alpha testing right now.. I had it installed on my Mi4 for 2weeks, the ROM is fast and runs pretty well, but there's a lot a of work to do yet.. High battery drain, lots of FCs, unwanted reboots.. but xiaomi is working hard on that, launching two new builds for week (approx).
    So, 6.0 is coming for Mi4, yes! Mi3 too!! But remember its alpha right now, not even beta, I bet it will be launched with Mi5 (just my opinion).
