    Conclusion


    Though the Mi4 packs in a lot of hot specs, yet I feel not many would go for it. Given the price it has been made available at does not go down well with the prospective buyers because of the lack of 4G support and the user memory of just 12 GB which is too less as the device has no expandable memory. One plus plus, though has no external card comes with 64 GB internal memory. Besides, it has a great camera. I would suggest you to go for One plus one rather than Mi4.
