The Xiaomi Mi 4 is powered by the latest version of the Snapdragon 801 chipset (MSM8974AC) with a quad-core 2.5Giga Hertz (GHz) Krait 400 processor, overclocked Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The Mi 3 also has a Snapdragon 801 chipset (MSM8274AB), but its Central Processing Units (CPU) clock is down to 2.3GHz, the Adreno 330 GPU clock is a bit lower too, and there's 2GB of RAM.

First, we ran the AnTuTu compound test, which in addition to the Central Processing Units (CPU) calculations, throws in GPU and Random-Access Memory (RAM) routines, too. The Xiaomi Mi 4 gets an excellent imprint here, just a tad better than the Mi 3.

We tried out the anti-cheat version of the popular Baseimprint Operating System (OS) II benchimprint and we found both devices don't utilize any tricks to climb up the score table. The overall ratings in this benchimprint are the best we've seen to date, though the Mi 4 has again a small lead over the Mi 3.

The Xiaomi Mi 4 posted better results in both single and multi-core performance, probably becautilize of the higher Central Processing Units (CPU) clock.

The Adreno 330 is a popular GPU, available in both the Snapdragon 800 and Snapdragon 801 chipsets. It runs on a slightly higher frequency (28 Mega Hertz (MHz) more) in the Xiaomi Mi 4, so we expected slightly better results than the Xiaomi Mi 3. The Mi 4 however turned out absolutely on par with its predecessor, as well as some of the S801-powered flagships out there such as the Galaxy S5, Xperia Z2, Find 7.

Winner: Tie. Going solely by benchimprint numbers the Xiaomi Mi 4 narrowly won most tests, but the differences are too slim to notice in daily use.
