It matches the likes of the Oppo Find 7 or Korean LG G3 blow for blow and surpasses the international LG G3, Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) by having more RAM. So the numbers should point to a winner but let’s not forget that software plays an important role in benchmarks as well.

Xiaomi Mi4 Vs OnePlus one: Battery:

Xiaomi has put a 3,080mAh battery inside the Mi 4, a solid enough unit for a 5″ device. We ran our battery test and the Xiaomi Mi 4 scored a 68h rating, which means you can count on the battery to last just short of 3 days if you do an hour each of calling, browsing the web and video playback a day. The Xiaomi Mi4 has a non detachable/removable battery. In case the battery dies out, you won’t able to replace the battery yourself. You’d be required to make a tedious visit to the service centre. This is one of the Cons of Xiaomi Mi4.

With a 3,100Ah battery, the OnePlus One sounds well covered in the battery life department, but the real-world results fail to truly excel.
