The Xiaomi brand is widely known for its smartphones that carry amazing specs, features, and even premium-looking designs offered at an affordable price. Yes, Chinese smartphones are known to be not that durable, but Chinese smartphones manufacturers are slowly changing that standard and are offering high-end Chinese smartphones that can possibly rival giant tech companies such as Samsung and Apple.
For this article, we will be focusing on the new Xiaomi Redmi Note 4's specs and features that carry a Snapdragon 625 chipset and list a few reasons as to what makes it a smartphone worth buying. Here are the reasons:
When it comes to the specs of the display, Xiaomi never falls behind in this category. With its Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 smartphone, this device offers a 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Not only that, because its screen-to-body ratio is 72.7 percent. And regarding its display output, it is bright and the colors are vibrant.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is packed with a Snapdragon 625 chipset. Sure, it's a bit outdated because most high-end smartphone these days runs on Android Nougat. However, if we consider the price range that this beauty of a smartphone is at and the Snapdragon 625 chip that it is carrying, that is pretty much a good deal.
There is also a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 packed with a MediaTek MT6797 Helio X20 chip. But for me personally, I would rather choose the variant carrying the Snapdragon 625 chip, because it feels more premium to me and most well-known high-end Android smartphones carry a Snapdragon chipset.
The Fingerprint Scanner
The fingerprint scanner is one of the requirements of a premium smartphone these days. Even budget smartphones have this. However, what makes the fingerprint scanner unique to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is that in its price range. It is accurate, fast and the placement of it is perfectly placed that users won't have any problem pressing it.
Xiaomi offers the Redmi Note 4 in two variants. First is a 32 GB model with 3 GB of RAM and the other is a 64 GB model with 4 GB of RAM. Also, both smartphones have a memory expandability option of up to 128 GB via microSD card.
About its performance, because it is packing a Snapdragon 625 chipset, even the 3 GB RAM variant performs rather well. It can handle games and software performance is good.
There are many smartphones available in the market right now with mixed prices. However, there is a reason as to why Xiaomi smartphones are popular even though there is still this belief shared by many that Chinese smartphones won't last long due to its poor durability.
Yes, I agree with that, but we should also consider that a phone's durability depends on how the owner takes care of it. For me, the Xiaomi smartphones have high-end specs and features which are offered with a considerable price tag. And as for its price, the least expensive version of the Redmi Note 4 costs $147.
