      Redmi Note 4: Simply Perfect!

      Another amazing Redmi Series product just got unleashed by Xiaomi in recent days, this was an total overhaul to the highly successful Redmi Note 3 which took China and India by storm. Now its time to upgrade the beast, ladies and gentlemen the Redmi Note 4.


      We have just recently concluded our review for the Redmi Pro, which is a more premium Redmi Series, though it was a 5.5 inch Redmi, it did not fall under the Note series. Redmi Pro: Midrange Smartphone Redefined



      Now the Redmi Note 4 is somewhat similar to Redmi Pro, only in some category. The most noticeable is the Helio X20 SoC which is present in the Redmi Pro 32GB variant.

      Whats in the Box:




      Unboxing Video:




      Design:



      The Redmi Note 4 is very striking at first glance, very elegant and looks very classy. Now we can compare it to the Redmi Pro, it is almost the same in dimension, only 0.2mm thicker and 1 gram heavier. The phone is metal aluminum body but is not polished which is present in the Redmi Pro.


      The Redmi Note 4 no longer has the curved sides that is present in the Remi Note 3, but rather a little chamfered square edged corner that is present in the Redmi Pro and Redmi 3X. The unibody construction gives your the premium feel in your hands, it is not edgy and not very round, just enough to hold the phone comfortably in the hands.



      As a heir to the throne of Redmi Note 3, there are only a few subtle changes on the Note 4. While both phones boast of a full metal unibody design, the Note 4 sports 2.5D curved glass on the front that exaggerates its style. There are changes here and there but unless you look closely, it's hard to differentiate between the two.


      Design of Xiaomi will always be simple yet elegant, we have the IR Blaster, voice cancellation mic and 3.5mm audio jack on top (glad they did not follow Iphone 7 and took out the audio jack socket otherwise all the pistons headset I collected will render useless already)


      On the right sports the volume rocker and the powerbutton. On the left lies the sim card tray which you can use dual sim or single sim with micro sd expansion up to 128GB. Sim 1 is micro sim size and sim 2 is nano sim size.


      Down there we can see the micro usb charging slot and the loudspeaker. Finally Xiaomi listened to its fans and placed the speaker on the bottom, it used to be at the back for Note 3G to Note 3 and the problem is when you lie your phone on its back, you can not hear your phone ringing especially when your ringtone is weak.


      Up front we have the 5MP selfie camera together with the 3 capacitive buttons and the notification light. At the back sports the MI Logo, Finger print scanner and the 13MP Camera.


      Helio X20



      The Helio X20 sports a 2.1 Ghz deca-core processor, the Redmi Note 4 comes in 2 variants
      2GB RAM 16GB ROM Helio X20
      3GB RAM 64GB ROM Helio X20




      We have brought the 3GB RAM 64GB ROM Helio X20 to the test and we were wondering why Xiaomi skipped 32GB ROM this time around. It performed well in multitasking and doing basic daily task like messenger, calls, facebook and surf. While trying some online games like Pokemon Go, we did not experienced any slowdown on the unit or lags in terms of processing.



      Here is the Antutu ratings for Redmi Note 4 64GB variant



      MIUI 7.5



      Its a bit surprising to see that this latest unit did not get launched in the latest MIUI 8. The operating system is pretty snappy, and we upgraded it to China Developer Rom to experience the MIUI 8 in it and it was fantastic. If your asking if the device is locked, well yes its bootloader locked. You will need to request for unlock permission if you want to install your favorite custom rom. But the bootloader is locked for your own protection.




      There is no Global Rom at the moment as of press time.

      Complete Colors Lineup:





      We were luck to be able to get all 3 color variant just to show you the colors in case you want to check what you will prefer before you hit the purchase button. So whats your favorite color?

      Connectivity:



      The Redmi Note 4 supports 9 different LTE bands, its easy to switch to LTE network inside the settings but once your do the second sim will be running on GSM connectivity only. You can freely choose which sim you want to use your LTE data, since this is a Dual LTE, Dual standby smartphone. We have experienced no problem surfing using LTE or 3G in our home country in the Philippines as well as dual stanby mode is working seamlessly. Wireless connectivity via Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac is also smooth and it also supports Wi-Fi Direct. Wireless screen mirroring is also available via the Miracast protocol, tethering data is also working perfectly. Bluetooth 4.2,GPS, and GLONASS are all present.

      Here are the supported bandwidth by the Redmi Note 4 based from the official website

      GSM B2/B3/B8
      WCDMA B1/B2/B5/B8
      TD-SCDMA B34/B39
      CDMA2000/1X BC0
      FDD-LTE B1/B3/ B5/B7/ B8
      TD-LTE B38/B39/B40/B41(2555-2655MHz)

      Audio and Video



      We were able to test watching 1080p movies, and we tried to watch Superman vs Batman and it was really clear and crisp, sounds on the loudspeaker are also clear and very powerful. We were glad they did not copy the loudspeaker location of the Redmi Note 3. We also tested the Pistons In Ear Pro and it also worked seamlessly on this phone. Here are the supported audio and video files in Redmi Note 4 as based on the official website:

      • MP4
      • M4V
      • MKV
      • XVID
      • WAV
      • AAC
      • MP3
      • AMR
      • FLAC
      • APE
      • DSD

      Camera



      The main reason why we keep upgrading to a newer phone is simply the camera, we love taking pictures, who doesnt? Now the debate is that will the Redmi Note 4 camera outperform the Redmi Note 3 camera? The MTK version of the Redmi Note 3 sports a 13MP camera while the Redmi Note 3 Pro Snapdragon SoC sports a 16MP snapper. Now people always think the higher the Megapixel, the better. For us reviewers its not the case, it will be based on how good the sensors that they are using. We have yet to find out what sensor was used in the Redmi Note 4. Now let me show you the photo gallery of this phone, we can say that outdoor shooting was terrific, we were able to snap good photos even the car is speeding at 60Kph, it like there is an OIS inside the camera but it was not stated in the specs sheet.

      The camera takes good photos in daylight and above average in low light areas, its best performance is outdoors, taking crisp and great photos.

      Battery and Temperature:



      While stuffing in a 4100mAh battery inside a thin unibody is no easy task, the Redmi Note 4 has a pretty good battery life. This unit supports 5V 2A charging and was able to record 11 hours for the 64GB variant and we expect a bit more for the 16GB variant as it is theoretically assumed to consume less power. While on the heat side, it recorded a 32 Celsius on standby mode, 35 Celsius on normal usage and roughly 37.5 Celsius on full throttle during our stress test using AnTuTu Batery Tester.

      Other Benchmarks:




      Conclusion:



      After putting the Redmi Note 4 to the test, we are now done with our review. Simple question by users and buyers, is it worththe money/upgrade from Redmi Note 3? In terms of performance I should say its pretty good considering everything is already using the latest technology well except for the micro usb charing slot.

      Now if you are a Redmi Note 3 Pro Snapdragon SoC user, one of the main problem that you might encounter is that flashing MTK is not as easy as Snapdragon, but we know that MTK is more energy efficient than the Snapdragon Series. It boils down to "will Xiaomi release a Snapdragon Version of the Redmi Note 4?"
