Hey Mi Fans,
A few months back Mi announced a new device in its Redmi Note line-up: The Redmi Note 4. On its very first sale, 250K+ Units were sold in just a wink of an eye. It's been around 5-6 months of Xiaomi announcing Redmi Note 4 in India, and guess what, in such a short span of time it became India's No. 1 selling smartphone! So the question is what makes Redmi Note 4 better than most smartphones available in the market at the moment. Without wasting much time let's get started. Roll up your sleeves and enjoy reading the thread!
Well, Redmi Note 4 is supercharged by Snapdragon 625, an octa-core processor chip that uses the most advanced 14nm FinFET technology. It is 20% more power efficient than Redmi Note 3, and is bound to put more power in your pocket.
Before starting the review let's check out the features of Redmi Note 4.
So above were some basic features of Redmi Note 4. Let delve into some of the features and know more about each of them!
When it comes to a smartphone, what most people prefer is its Design. So let's first check the design, the appearance, the looks of Redmi Note 4!
Redmi Note 4 is having a 5.5" Full HD Display with 2.5D Curved Glass. When it comes to using Redmi Note 4 the touch exprience is simply butteryand using it is just fun! The best thing I love is the 2.5D Curved Glass Display because it actually softens the edges of the display resulting in an amazing user experience!
On the back side, Redmi Note 4 is having a 13 MP Rear camera with dual tone flash and below that fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor unlocks the device in less than a second, 0.3 second to be precise. The aluminium separation lines on the back of the Redmi Note 4 is like a cherry on the cake. Its elegant look makes the Redmi Note 4 look even better.
On the top left side in the image, there's a 3.5 mm audio jack and on the right side there's an IR Blaster.
On the bottom left side is the mic, followed by micro USB charging port and then speakers. The Redmi Note 4 is symmetrical in design and it makes it look cool! Isn't it?
On the right side of the phone, there's volume button and a power button. I hope I don't need to show you which one is volume button and which one is power button!!
There's nothing much on the left side of the phone, just a sim slot and that's all! Minimal design is what makes Redmi Note 4 look elegant!
Beauty in Black!
While you are checking out this review, I thought of showing you a customised skinned Redmi Note 4. It's just a skin tough, you can customise it as per your prefrence!
With an amazing design, performance it what matters too! Let's have a look at Redmi Note 4's performance!
As I mentioned earlier, Redmi Note 4 is supercharged by 2.0 Ghz octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor with 14nm FinFET technology which is bound to put more power in your pocket. The device also sports a powerful Adreno 506 GPU to give you the most amazing gaming experience. Gaming on Redmi Note 4 is smoother and lag free. I played Asphalt 8, Need For Speed Most Wanted, Dead Trigger 2 and many more and I must say Redmi Note 4 handled it so easily which indulged me in an extended gaming session.
On the multitasking front, the apps can be launched quickly and smoothly. This is all because of the combination of more thermal reduction and greater performance. Other than 32/64 GB internal memory, Redmi Note 4 is expandable to 128 GB so that you don't have to worry about storage space running out and can install as much apps as you want.
Capturing the elegant look of Redmi Note 4 is just lovely. But how much can Redmi Note 4's camera performs? Isn't that even a question? However, let's check out its answer below!
