Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Design:
The Redmi Note 4 brings back that same design philosophy, and there isn’t much too tell the two phones apart. Xiaomi has gone with the same Block concept, changing little of design what it sees as a tried and tested formula.Xiaomi has changed the manufacturing process for the metal body since the Note 3, which has resulted in a higher quality, and a sturdier body. However, it weighs more too – 175g vs. 164g. Furthermore, 0.3mm has been shaved off from the thickness, and the sides have given a new shape.
That’s not to meant that Xiaomi is no changing in design at all, but the differences are minimal and noticeable only if you pay the close attention it. The most significant change of these is the shifting of the speaker grille from the back to the bottom of the phone, and the slight curve near the edges at the back of the device that makes it a bit easier to grip the phone.That removes the user complained of old Redmi Note 3 of speaker sound gets low when we put the phone on a surface.Another key change is that the capacitive Android keys below the screen are now backlit, although this is very dim lighting that’s only really visible when it’s completely dark.
The Redmi Note 4 Comes with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD Screen and shows no colour shifting at different angles. It has a Full HD resolution of 1080p and comes with automatic brightness Sense. but, the high reflectivity of the screen makes it hard to read under the Direct sun’s glare. The colours are fairly accurate but there is an increased contrast mode, which changes the dynamic contrast on a per-image basis and makes photos look punchier. Furthermore, you can enable the Reading mode to reduce the amount of blue light in the evening and trigger it automatically for certain selected apps like Kindle, which involve reading.mi
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Battery
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Comes with a 4100mAh battery that isn’t a lot larger than the Previous model Redmi Note 3. but, the amazingly power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 helps in getting as many working hours out of it as possible, Even with the heavy usage of phone, The phone was able to get close to two full days out of it, and none of this comes at the cost of performance.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Camera
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 comes with a 13-megapixel Primary Camera, which is capable of Recordng video at Full HD Resolution, but it’s lower than Previous version Redmi Note 3. The Redmi Note 3 has a 16-megapixel Camera.Redmi Note 4 also have a dual-tone LED flash at the back, and autofocus uses phase detection methods.There is a 5MP Front selfie camera. However, the highest video resolution it supports is 720p, which is again a downgrade from Note 3 that could take 1080p selfie videos.
The Xiaomi camera app is pretty neat, offering a host of settings including manual, panorama, scene, tilt-shift, etc. It instantly locks the focus and is quick to capture the images. The images were captured a fair amount of details and colours looked natural. Images captured in HDR mode looked better. Redmi Note 3 does a pretty decent job in low-light too.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Performance
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 sticks to its mid-range budget pricing, there are some changes in the hardware that give it a boost in performance. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is powered by the MediaTek Helio X20 chipset.That’s a pretty impressive chipset that is used in several high-end Segment phones.
The Redmi Note 4 took a minute or two for the Power on Process. But after it, the operation was smooth. The device runs on MiUi8, built on Android Marshmallow. All the apps are neatly placed on the home screen – some of the folders. The Xiaomi Miui apps such as calculator, recorder, compass, scanner, etc. have been placed in the tools folder. The Xiaomi apps are always lovable.Take an example of its Calculator. It has preloaded Current time Currency Convertor. There is also a security app that includes a cleaner, data usage, block list, virus, scan and permission. My favourite one was the Mi Remote that converts the phone into the universal remote for controlling All digital appliance. Swiping down within the file explorer opens the password page to access hidden files.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Connectivity And Others
The Redmi Note 4 doesn’t support NFC, but all other connectivity bases are covered with dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and GLONASS, USB OTG and a fingerprint scanner at the rear. We all like the 4G dual-SIM dual-standby phone, but you must choose between microSD support and a second SIM since they share the same slot.That was a sad experience. And as we noted earlier, the Redmi Note 4 does not support the 800MHz 4G band used by O2 in the UK, so O2 (and Giffgaff) customers will need to make do with 3G or look elsewhere.
