A note on storage capacity
The storage space on your Mi phone, like all other smartphone devices, uses some capacity for operating system and system applications. The actual storage available for applications and files will be less (Total storage capacity:16GB,Available storage capacity: 13.22GB). In addition, other factors, such as pre-installed systems or other software and media, may be updated and will also use part of the available storage capacity on the drive. Please refer to product technical specification sheet for actual storage capacity that can be used.
