A YouTube channel that goes by the name Redskull did a phone review of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X's specs and features. Interestingly, the areas where the said device excelled at the most were on its software, rear camera and battery performance for a smartphone under $200.
The Redmi Note 4X runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with MIUI 8.0 on top of it. It has a single-core score of 825 and a multi-core score of 2978.
As for its software performance, the Redmi Note 4X is not that good in multi-tasking. However, in terms of web browsing, scrolling up or down, zooming in or out, and watching YouTube videos at a maximum resolution of 1080p, everything runs perfectly smooth. Just like other previous Xiaomi devices, it also has access to a theme store, making it highly customizable.
For its gaming performance, it's above average. Games such as GTA: San Andreas, Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5 and N.O.V.A 3 with the game settings set to maximum had no issues at all.
The Redmi Note 4X features a 5 MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture. For its performance, shots taken under good lighting conditions produce "okay-looking" pictures. However, shots taken under low-light conditions don't turn out that really well.
The device features a 13 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and dual-LED flash. The camera app is identical to past Xiaomi devices offering a lot of options, like modes and filters. It is also fast in taking pictures but takes a bit longer when shooting HDR pictures. Regarding its performance, day shots are great with no issues at all. The details were sharp and the colors were nice and vibrant. Surprisingly, the Redmi Note 4X also takes decent shots in low light conditions, especially for a smartphone in its budget range.
As for the video recording, the review did not show any sample videos. As reported, the Redmi Note 4X shoots 1080p@30fps, 720p@120fps.
The Redmi Note 4X is powered by a non-removable Li-Po 4100 mAh battery. It doesn't have a fast-charging feature so it takes two hours and a half to charge it from zero percent to full battery. However, there is good news, because the phone itself is capable of giving eight hours of screen-on time.
