Xiaomi Mi4c vs OnePlus X: Mid-rangers Battle

OnePlus and Xiaomi are two of the most well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturers. However, if Xiaomi has various kinds of phones for many kinds of consumers, OnePlus seems to be sort of limited in products. So far they have just had OnePlus One and OnePlus Two as premium machines and OnePlus X as the only and newest budget one. Nonetheless, it is a pretty good handset and can beat many others in its type. Well, let’s see if the X can do that in the following battle:

Firstly, we see that the X is thinner than Mi4c but a bit heavier and it is also not very colorful due to owning just 2 color options: Onyx and Ceramic. But, if you do not feel that is a problem, we think OP X looks more premium and beautiful thanks to the metal frame placed between glasses on the front and the back, which somewhat reminds us of Samsung Galaxy S6 design and Sony Xperia Z series one as well. Meanwhile, Xiaomi Mi4c design is not very different from its sibling Xiaomi Mi4i when sporting a plastic cover. Actually, in our opinion, it is actually cuter but not cooler than the X. Agree?

Secondly, in terms of specifications, there are some differences we should note. Obviously it is the chip. They both use Qualcomm Snapdragon ones but Xiaomi Mi4c boasts the SD808 and OnePlus X the SD801. Here, the 808 is stronger than the 801 as you can see in the picture below:


Then, Mi4c sports a bigger battery (3,080mAh vs 2,525mAh). Therefore, the Xiaomi appears to have more advantages now. However, OP X has the expandable internal storage, which means that you can store a lot of things. Besides, it features an up to 8MP front-facing camera which is an ideal one for selfie lovers.

Finally, we would like to consider the prices. In general, Xiaomi Mi4c price (3GB RAM ver) is similar to OnePlus X price. Then, we cannot tell which one is greater in terms of price. So, you have to base on your needs to pick out the winner for yourself 😉 . If you like taking gorgeous selfies and huge ROM for stuff, just relax and go with the X. On the contrary, you want a powerful smartphone with a pastel color, it has to be the Xiaomi Mi4c. Very simple, right?!

In conclusion, we are glad that more and more good phones like Xiaomi Mi4c and OnePlus X are produced nowadays. We totally can get a budget one but it can do a lot of things for our work, study, entertainment, etc. No matter what you choose, we bet that you will have a fantastic device to use all day lone 🙂 .
