Xiaomi, the third largest manufacturer in the world, entered the Indian market in the fourth quarter of the previous year and has taken the Indian Smartphone market with a storm through its unparalleled success. The latest Xiaomi product to hit shelves is the fantastic Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G, the successor to the Xiaomi Redmi Note Smartphone.
Xiaomi Redmi Note, was launched officially in Indian, late last year and set a record by exhausting all their stocks in just six seconds in the Flipkart flash sale, the first of its kind. This unprecedented craze may be due to the stunning features and beautiful design, which are available at an extremely convenient and affordable price.
The USP of the Smartphone is that it gives one 4G-LTE connectivity, which is the future of Internet; amidst other impressive specs. The basic features of the Xiaomi Redmit Note 4G are:
- A 5.5 inch IPS LCD display touchscreen (720x1280pixels)
- Runs on Android 4.2 JellyBean OS
- Powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
- Supported by a 2GB RAM
- Primary camera of 13MP with LED flash
- Secondary camera of 5MP
- Internal storage of 8GB, expandable to 64GB
- Li-Po 3100mAh battery
Redmi Note 4G comes with a 5.5 inch IPS LCD display screen having a resolution of 720x1280pixels and a density of 267pi. The design boasts of a super sized experience and comes covered with white glossy plastic. The rounded corners makes the Smartphone easier to hold in spite of its sheer size and even the good choice of colour ensures that there are no inevitable residual fingerprint smudges left behind, while continuously using.
The Redmi Note 4G has been endowed with a very impressive and powerful hardware. It is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 processor having a Qualcomm MSM8928 Snapdragon 400 chipset and an Adreno 305 GPU. This is supported by a 2GB RAM, which is quite impressive when you look at the price of the Smartphone.
Software and Storage
Redmi Note 4G runs on Android 4.3 KitKat OS, with no further news about its upgradable capability to the Lollipop version. The interface is quite easy to use and Xiaomi’s MIUI is also pretty well optimized giving the display a rich feel.
As the initial Redmi Note, even the latest Redmi Note 4G provides the user with 8GB of internal storage but can be expanded to 64GB with the help of a microSD card slot present. Thus, storage available can be termed to be decent.
When one looks at the Redmi Note 4G’s price tag, one may expect the Smartphone to be laden with a normal medium-megapixel camera but that is not the case. The Smartphone flaunts a 13MP primary camera like most high-end Smartphones, which captures stunning pictures and videos and comes with excellent photo quality, even if it does not have built-in optical image optimization. However, in low light conditions, the performance does face hurdles. The 5MP front camera is more than enough to satisfy the Selfie addicts in their mission.
Redmi Note 4 comes with a 3100mAh Li-Po battery whose performance is quite impressive, too. It can give up to 38hours in 2G and 14h in 3G, and has an approximate standby time of 775hours. Even, the power setting option available herein, allows the user to longer maximise their battery life.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G can be easily termed as a spectacular device which gives the user a beautiful display, nice design, fantastic camera and the stunning 4G-LTE connectivity, to make it to the list of the most desirable Smartphones in India now. The fact that it is available in a highly affordable price in comparison to the features it gifts, add to its roaring success.
The competitors to Xiaomi’s latest marvel in the Indian market are the Micromax Yu Yureka and Lenovo A6000, both of which give the user 4G connectivity options. But with the unprecedented success it witnessed in the Flipkart flash sale and with Airtel coming up with the ‘Mi Day’ every week in their retail stores, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G is expected to break more records in the future.
