Huawei Honor 7 wins, hands down. It provides excellent specifications compared to the Xiaomi’s Mi 4i. It also gives you a fingerprint sensor which comes handy every time you unlock the phone. The Mi 4i lacks the expandable storage and fingerprint sensor. For the price, Mi 4i will definitely a good buy and it is recommended if you have the same price bracket. Still, if you want more performance, Honor 7 is the one to look for.
