2015 seems to be the year when Chinese phone manufacturers have stepped up their game and revolutionized the mobile phone industry. By presenting devices that could compete with flagship models, individuals get to have a number of choices when it comes to buying a new device. But if there’s one thing that makes these phones stand out, it would definitely be their affordability. If you’re considering getting an affordable smartphone any time soon, your best pick would either be the Xiaomi Mi4c or the ASUS Zenfone 2. Here is a short comparison between these two devices and which the best device for you is.
Xiaomi Mi4c official release
Xiaomi Mi4c vs Zenfone 2 Display
First things first: the display. The Xiaomi Mi4c is a smaller option compared to the ASUS Zenfone 2. Coming in with a display of 5.0 inches of IPS LCD capacitive touch, the Xiaomi Mi4c gathers in a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels with a 441ppi pixel density. Meanwhile, the Zenfone 2 has a 5.5-inch IPS display with 720×1280 pixels and a 267ppi density. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. While the Zenfone 2 has a larger display screen, it does not necessarily push out higher pixels. But a higher resolution size could also mean a more battery-hungry device. If the half inch difference in size doesn’t matter that much to you, then you could go with the Xiaomi Mi4c.
Winner: Xiaomi Mi4c

Both the Xiaomi Mi4c and Zenfone 2 are available with Dual-SIM card slots. This helps users maximize their ability to make calls with the use of two different networks. Their size, however, tell a different story.
The Xiaomi Mi4c has a more compact and lightweight dimensions compared to the Zenfone 2. It measures in just 5.44 x 2.74 x 0.31 inches with a weight of 4.66 oz. while the Zenfone 2 has dimensions measuring 6.00 x 3.04 x 0.43 inches and a weight of 6 oz. On this criteria alone, it is clear that the Xiaomi Mi4c is a better option than the heavier and larger Zenfone 2.
As for the colors available, the Zenfone 2 is available in Osmium Black, Ceramic White, and Glamor Red; whereas the Xiaomi Mi4c comes in more color options including White, Grey, Pink, Yellow, and Blue.

Xiaomi Mi4c vs Zenfone 2 Performance

The Zenfone 2 manages to beat the Xiaomi Mi4c in terms of its performance. Thanks to a more powerful processor, the Zenfone 2 manages to push out more power for its device users. The Zenfone 2 is powered by a 1.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Atom Z3560 processor with a couple of RAM options—a 2GB variant and a 4GB option. Meanwhile, the Xiaomi Mi4c runs on a 1.44GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 2GB of RAM and 3GB of RAM options.
Comparing these two devices, the 4GB of RAM option for the Zenfone 2 takes the cake. It makes for a very powerful device that even other flagship models are unable to keep up with. If you’re looking for a device that will make you enjoy the best speed and smooth performance, the Zenfone 2 is a clear choice.
The Zenfone 2 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with ASUS ZenUI out of the box. The Xiaomi Mi4c runs Android the latest 5.1.1 Lollipop OS. The Xiaomi Mi4c also comes with new software features such as Edge Tap (lets users tap on side of the phone to take a photo or go back to a previous page) and Double Tap (lets users wake the screen).
Winner: Zenfone 2
Xiaomi Mi4c vs Zenfone 2 Memory
For many users, having a high memory capacity tells them whether or not they should go with a particular model of smartphone. Considering the fact that the Xiaomi Mi4c doesn’t have a microSD card slot, it may be another defining decision for many people. Both devices have 16/32 GB built-in memory capacity. But if this isn’t enough for you to store your files on, the Zenfone 2 offers up to 64GB memory expansion through its microSD card slot—something the Xiaomi Mi4c is unable to do.
Winner: Zenfone 2
Xiaomi Mi4c vs Zenfone 2 Camera
In the camera department, both devices come with similar specs; making it hard to choose a clear winner. They are both equipped with a 13MP rear-facing camera with dual-LED flash, autofocus, HDR mode, and geo-tagging. The back camera on both models can record 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. In addition to the back camera, both phones have a 5MP front-facing sensor available with them. With similar specs, there’s no clear winner as they both manage to capture really neat photos from either camera available.
Xiaomi Mi4c vs Zenfone 2 Battery
Both the Xiaomi Mi4c and Zenfone 2 are equipped with non-removable batteries—a Li-Ion 3080mAh for the Xiaomi Mi4c and a Li-Po 3000mAh battery for the Zenfone 2. They also have quick charging capability that helps their users the option to quickly recharge their device whenever they need it to.
The 80mAh difference between these two devices don’t really give that much to choose from. But considering the Xiaomi Mi4c only comes with a 5-inch display, the 80mAh difference could mean a lot already. Without that extra half inch screen to power, the Xiaomi Mi4c’s battery may be able to last longer throughout the day.
Winner: Xiaomi Mi4c

The new software upgrades also give the Xiaomi Mi4c a great reason to buy it. Considering a total of only 100,000 units of the device will be made available to the public, there’s a reason why many are excited for the day when this smartphone starts selling publicly.
