Looking at the alternatives available in the market with better features, this phone don't stand a chance and it was mistake buying this phone for Rs 17, 000.


Apart from the big screen and battery, there is nothing in the phone that will make you like it.

  1. Camera: A 12 mega pixel camera is in the market on almost every phone from past 4-5 years. There is no camera upgrade and it's just a standard camera with average quality Photography.

Better cameras are available in phone's costing Rs 5000 Lesser than this phone. No Portrait mode available, I mean this is something standard now a days. Features like Slow motion and Time-lapse are added but again, the quality is way better in other phones.

Low lighting pictures has too much noise and are not at all clear.

  1. Resale Value: The resale Value of this phone is not even 40% of the original price. I purchased it for 17000 and no shopkeeper is ready to take it for more than 7000 Rs after 5 months of usage. If I had purchased an Iphone, I would have got a way better deal.

  2. OS issues: I faced issue with my contact list multiple times where the numbers are synced with wrong names. For eg: A contact was saved with the number 123 but it somehow swapped the number with Contact B and now when I call A, the call connects to B. I called MI support and they asked me download a fix. The problem was fixed however, it has occurred 2-3 times even after the patch.

4: Pathetic Support: Till the time you have a basic query, the support agents are fine. I bet, you wont be able to speak to a manager if you ask for. I have stayed in queues to speak to a manager, but I had to give up finally. No call back from MI. Very poor customer service.

5: Sound reception: I am not sure if it is a problem with the phone or the carrier's network issue but 7-10 calls are not clear enough.

6: Better Buy OnePlus or Oppo or an used Iphone if your budget is low. But don't go for this device or company.
