It’s been four days since the release of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. The momentum doesn’t seem to decrease not even a pinch, vice-versa, it continues to progress for the descendant of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. And why should it decrease? We all know that nothing is better in the world than having the best budget friendly phone which offers a lot more as compared to the price.
Don’t believe us? Tell us, is there are a phone which can compete with Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 for a price of 899 yuan ($135) for the standard edition and 1199 yuan ($180) for higher version. As the upgrade of the Redmi Note generation, Note 4 features MediaTeK Helio X20 (10 cores @ 2.1GHz) as the heart accompanied by 2/3 GB RAM and 16/64 GB internal storage, along with the option of expanding it via Micro SD (up to 256 GB). It runs on Android 6.0 (MIUI 8) along with a massive 4100 mAh battery.
Here’s a detailed tour of Xiaomi’s latest flagship with the silver colored variant:
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Out of the Box Tour – Let the Journey Begin!
Let’s start our tour with the primary, the physical dimensions. Xiaomi Redmi 4 appears to be an average sized phone with the 151mm×76mm×8.35mm. It weights 175g, which is a little bit heavier than the previous generation as the chassis incorporates pure metal, unlike the previous generations which were composed of plastic.
Driving to the rear, the beauty of the terminal seems to exaggerate flawlessly with the back metal three-stage design (combined with nanoscale ceramic surface blasting process).
The back of Note 4 is similar to that of the previous generation, the same placement of the fingerprint reader, a 13 MP Sony camera, and a Dual LED flash between them.
However, we can notice that the alignment has moved a little bit resting which the addition of the two white streaks, like the Redmi Pro, which is somewhat new for the Note range.
The front also seems to be a ditto copy of Redmi Note 3, apart from the arrange of LED, earphone and 5 MP shooter on the top. Personally, we think that this arrangement is suitable than the previous generations (all on the right side), as it provides a naturally balanced symmetry. Even the simple and elegant design continues a tradition with the same touch-based buttons.
Furthermore, the surface illuminates proudly with a 5.5 inch 1080P display along with 2.5D glass technology and thin bezels. It should be noted that the previous generations lacked a Full HD display, expect the Pro version, for that price which is appreciable.
Progressing to the sides, we can see a variation in the design. This time, Xiaomi has focused on the border as it seems to undergo many processes (see the glittering streak around the verge).
The button placement continues as a trend in Redmi series, where the Hybrid SIM slot, supporting entire 4G network and is situated on the right meanwhile volume bar and screen lock button on the left.
Meanwhile, the volume bar and the screen lock button are present on the left side.
On the top side, we witness an interesting alternation with the addition of IR port (center) along with the universal 3.5mm jack and the antenna port. Surprising Xiaomi has arranged them perfectly, decreasing in diameter from left to right so that the ports won’t look nasty.
Heading to the last stop of our tour, the bottom of Redmi Note 4. It’s not that much special at all, still worthy of highlighting. The bottom consists of the famous thermally efficient hole design, along with the speakers and Micro USB port. Off-Topic: Check the best torrent sites here for some entertainment :p
