While the other hand rival, The Xiaomi Mi4 features a 5 inch display with 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution with the pixel density of 440Â ppi. That meansÂ that both the gadgets have almost same screen size andÂ the same pixel density and the image resolution. Xiaomi Mi4 has higher than its rival in terms of screen size.
The Xiaomi Mi4Â gives you slightly more screen space, not only because it’s fractionally larger, but because the Mi3Â has on-screen controls with a border in the bottom.
The Xiaomi Mi3Â features a 2.3GHzÂ Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 8274ABÂ Â with a Â 2GB of RAM. While the Xiaomi Mi4Â features a Â 2.5 GHz quadÂ coreÂ Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 as well as 3Â GB of RAM. Which means that the Xiaomi Mi4Â has a fasterÂ processor than the Xiaomi Mi3. AndÂ the RAM option makes a plus point for Xiaomi Mi4Â and but the working is same which leads to chooseÂ over One plus oneÂ than Xiaomi.
The Xiaomi Mi3Â features 16 GB of on-board ROM with an option of a 32Â GB variant on board ROM too. But the phone is not supported with a external SDcard Slot. While theÂ Xiaomi Mi4 features 16/32 GB of on-board ROM with an option of a 32Â GB variant on board ROM too. But the phone is not supported with a external SDcard Slot
The Xiaomi Mi3Â features the same UltraPixel sensor (f/2.0 aperture) found in the original Xiaomi Redmi phones, although it’s a better all-round performer than before. It also has a Duo Camera for depth perception which means that there’s a range of fancy features on offer, and 2-megapixel (f/2.0 aperture) front-facing camera which is excellent for selfies. But the front camera is not an HD version but resembles a high quality camera and resolution.
On the second half, the Xiaomi Mi4Â features a 13Â megapixel sensor with fast 0.8 second capture speed. The Xiaomi Mi4Â camera is alsoÂ known for the best photography so the Xiaomi Mi4Â takes the lead in terms of camera. The Xiaomi Mi4Â smartphone can also capture Ultra HD video, something the Xiaomi mi3Â is incapable of and there are a range of smart functions, including “selective focus” which produces similar toÂ XiaomiÂ Redmi without the additional lens. This new added features lets you choose over Xiaomi Mi4.
The Xiaomi Mi3Â features Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 6.0. The Xiaomi Mi4Â features the same androidÂ and a new version of MIUI 6. Both have same operating systems but the Xiaomi Mi3 has a bigger advantage of the Android 5.0 lollipop update. So the XiaomiÂ leads in operating system overÂ Xiaomi Mi4.
The Xiaomi Mi3Â features a 3050Â mAh battery that is supposedly 40 per cent more efficient than the first Xiaomi Redmi, which could last up to two days with even 3G services. However Xiaomi Mi3Â has added aggressive power saver options to make sure your device lasts the distance and it’s very impressive.
The Xiaomi Mi4Â features a 3080 mAh battery that will get you through the day. It also offers power saving features to match those of Xiaomi Mi4. Both devices are a step above the previous generation, giving much better endurance.
Conclusion whether which one is the best:
The Xiaomi Mi3Â features a machined aluminium body that wraps around the sides making for a 90 per cent metal finish. There will be single colorÂ available: metallic grey. It’s a triumph of design, it looks stunning and feels sensational to hold.
The Xiaomi Mi4Â is mainly metallic, sticking to familiar design, but with a more tactile back for better grip. The big positives are that it is dustproof and resistant in liquid down to a metre in depth, and it’ll be available in black and white colors.
The Xiaomi Mi3 feels like the slicker device in daily use. The user interface is faster and although it has less options and features, the interface feels more sophisticated and mature. It offers class-leading sound quality, a great display, but the real winner is the design. In the battle of these two giants, Xiaomi Mi3Â takes it, but only just.
The Xiaomi Mi4Â offers a wider range of features and comes with great connectivity, a stunning display, plenty of power and a camera that performs well. However it feels like it could be faster in daily use and the unique features of the heart rate sensor and fingerprint scanner may well get turned off and ignored.
As per price, the Xiaomi Mi3Â is available at Rs 4,920 and the Xiaomi Mi4Â is available in India at a price tag of 19,999Â INR. The color variants are same for the devices.
