worst of the best

the turning is great probably the best on 4x4.
however the corner cutting is not that good.
overall its a good cube for the price.

i thing the mgc would better to get but this is still good and main worthy.

good

Out of the box, it was terrible.
After some break in and lube it is very smooth and enjoyable to turn
I prefer this over the mgc4x4 and the aosu wrm

Not as good as expected but still a decent cube

Honestly the modern budget puzzles like the meilong 4M and RS4M are better than this, which is why I don’t give it a very high rating, although it is still a great cube. The price is just too much for the modern market

A+++

I am not the most experienced 4x4 solver and I am pretty close to averaging 1 minute on 4x4 at the time of this post. Here are some bullet points about my experience with this cube.

-This was terrible out of the box, the cube clearly need break in.
-I broke the cube in by 90 degree tightening with the "Max Set Up"..
-After 2 days of spamming solves to break in, I need to loosen the cube alot.
-I am very happy with the cube despite how loose I needed to make it.

You really need accurate turning with this puzzle or you need to leave it really loose. If you are a little reckless with your turning, you are better off with the MoYu AoSu WRM or the YJ MGC 4. Even though I have made the cube very loose for my taste, I have yet to pop anything. This will be my main 4x4 over the AoSu WRM and YJJ MGC 4.

Good not great

this 4x4 is certainly a good one but with few minor issues that hold me back from giving it a 5 star review. first is that it came put to tight out of the box but I had to untighten very little since I feel If I did a half turn it would be to loose, Second lock ups this happens most of the time in the inner layers but I do get internal catches sometimes when I do T and J perms. And lastly it was a little to fast this would only be a problem if your a beginner and I fixed this problem by lubing it with Angstrom Gravitas & Dignitas + Compound X.

Not great

I heard this cube was amazing and main-worthy. I believed this until I got my own. Ootb it was very smooth but sticky so I took it apart, wiped off the pieces, and relubed it. The resulting cube was even worse than it was ootb. It is now slow, sluggish and catchy. I am quite disappointed. Qiyi just doesn't seem to be able to make good 4x4s anymore.

Exciting, Imperfect.

I don't know why or how so many unboxing videos show this cube being "amazing," because it's most certainly not. It's unstable, locky, and the noise the center-pieces make is infuriating. I was deeply disappointed based on advertising material I've seen giving it high marks based on ootb performance.

With setup & break-in, nearly all of these problems do get fixed. I lubed mine with Gravitas in the tracks, dignitas on pieces, weight 5 on the core, and 2 drops of dnm-37 in the corner hole, and that showed drastic improvement. The cube sped up, the layers turned more evenly, and the feel of the cube is significantly more pleasing.

The two primary issues that the cube has in my experience: First, the individual inner layer turns feel as though they catch on the internal pieces, no matter how I position my hands for turning. The other issue would be that this cube's corner-cutting falls a bit short when compared to other current flagships.

The primary cases in which you'd want to get this cube would be:
A) You're upgrading from a noticeably older cube (WuQue M, AoSu GTSM) or any budget or non-magnetic cube on the market
B) You want a cube with exceptional outer layer speed, and a distinct sandy feel

If you're coming from a Valk 4M, or the MoYu AoSu WRM, I'd probably skip this cube, as the upgrades are negligible at best.

Excellent

I bought two, one for me and one for my blind friend, we added textures with our own special method and love how smooth the cubes operate. I have tried three times blind folded and haven't made it all the way yet, always seem to mess up one formula when I don't have my visual queue's.

Qiyi is stepping up their game

Qiyi has been falling out of the 4x4 game after the Valk 4. Byt this is definitely the best 4x4 qiyi has ever made. It turns very nicely right out of the box, I really like how to cube feels and the magnet strength is perfect for me. It does however have some problems with lock ups, and the reverse cutting is not great, but these two things are not enough to prevent me from maining this. Would give 4.5 stars if it were an option

Pretty great

Purchased this thing with very high hopes - and out of the box, I was sorely disappointed. Frosted plastic, printed logo, bad feel, yuck! However, after break in, and with the help of a pencil eraser, the logo was gone, the frosted plastic wore into a semi-glossy grippy surface, and the feel turned smooth and fast.

Absolutely recommend, but keep in mind this cube feels very different OOTB vs after break in.
