Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 review: it’s less powerful, but…

 

The Redmi Note 3 (review) was one of our favourite smartphones of 2016, packing a gigantic battery, powerful Snapdragon 650 chipset and a solid hardware de

The Redmi Note 4 sees a drop in power that makes it less suited for gaming and specific tasks (such as HDR photography and VR). But the weaker processor is also far more power efficient, making it a battery king of note. You decide what’s more...

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 review

 

The X factor is lacking!

Much improved battery life ; Competitive pricing ; Adequate performance ; Decent display

Lacks X factor ; Design feels a little old ; Rear camera struggles in low light

The Redmi Note 4 is an extremely solid, albeit a little boring offering from Xiaomi.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 review: An eye-catching upgrade on the Redmi Note 3

 

The Redmi Note 4 is the latest mid-range phablet from Xiaomi, and it certainly looks like a fantastic upgrade over the Note 3. Of course, looks can sometimes be deceiving. Find out whether it's worth your money in our Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 review.

The Redmi Note 4 isn’t a huge upgrade over the Redmi Note 3 in terms of core hardware, with simply a greater amount of storage and a faster processor, but the design changes are a huge improvement over its predecessor. If you don’t care about looks and...

Xiaomi's budget big-screen phone gets a more luxurious look

 

Xiaomi found success with the Redmi Note 3, and it's not deviating too much with the new Note 4. Instead, this 5.5-inch phone refines its predecessor's metal body design with chamfered edges for a more premium look, while incrementally improving its...

The Note 4 is proof that specifications do not always matter. The difference in performance between flagship phones and budget phones is much smaller than benchmarks would indicate.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Review

 

With the last year's Redmi Note 3 success, Xiaomi came up with its 4th generation Redmi Note 4 with new downgrades, ahem... ahem...! Upgrades. The newly launched device now offers a better camera and longer battery life. It also comes in new storage...

Decent Performance ; Excellent Battery Life ; 64 GB variant is a steal ; Value For Money

Average Front Camera

There are probably less reasons to upgrade if you are using Redmi Note 3. Assuming that the camera needs an improvement and the battery life is inadequate, these are the only reasons to upgrade to Redmi Note 4 according to me.
