“With a brilliant kiến thiết, big battery, & bargain price, the Redmi Note 4X is crying out for international support.”

Xiaomày may capture headlines for stunning, high-power smartphones like the Mi Mix và the Mi 6, which are great devices; but arguably the company does low-cost hardware with strong spec lists better. Its latest is the Redmày chú ý 4X, an update lớn 2016’s Redmi Note 4, which costs about $160 depending on the color you choose. That’s not very much money for a smartphone today, especially one with features lượt thích the chú ý 4X.

Like all Xiaomi phones, if you want to own one outside Đài Loan Trung Quốc, you have sầu khổng lồ use an import service to get it. It’s not difficult, but it can be a challenge down the line if the phone breaks, và making sure it connects lớn your chosen network. It’s extremely tempting lớn piông xã up a $160 phone that looks like it should cost twice that, so should you?

We’ve been using the Redmi cảnh báo 4X for the last two weeks to lớn find out, & the answer is no. It’s a fantastic phone for the price, but the dealbreaker is its lack of 4G LTE connectivity.

Stylish design

If you’re familiar with the Redngươi cảnh báo 4, little has changed with the Redmày cảnh báo 4X. Two small screws on both sides of the MicroUSB charging port have sầu been removed for a cleaner look, and the antenna bands have been minimized & replaced by shiny strips, rather than cheap-looking Trắng plastic. Nothing major, but enough to make the Note 4X a modern, sleek looking phone you’ll be proud lớn hold.

It’s quite thiông chồng at 8.5mm, but it’s comfortable to lớn hold due to lớn a 2.5 chiều piece of curved glass over the screen, & a perfectly curved aluminum rear panel. Cradling the Redmi cảnh báo 4X, you’ll find it ergonomical. The power button falls easily lớn thumb or finger (depending if you’re left or right handed), and the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is ideally placed, so your finger avoids the camera lens above it. It’s a grippable phone, & one that doesn’t feel too slippery.

If you lượt thích phones without much branding, the Redngươi cảnh báo 4X will please you. Only a Mi biệu tượng công ty is etched inlớn the bachồng, and the usual three Android capacitive sầu keys sit below the screen, glowing when the phone is awake. The Note 4X is available in several different colors, including silver, gold, blaông chồng, and pink, plus the light green version seen here. The light green has a slight matte effect, but retains a decent light-catching glow, as well as a subtle, tactile texture. Phones in multiple colors are becoming more popular, và khổng lồ find such chất lượng hues on a phone so competitively priced is very welcome.

Minimamenu, stylish, & pleasant lớn hold, it’s surprising the Redmi cảnh báo 4X costs so little.

Bright screen, long-lasting battery

The Redngươi cảnh báo 4X has a Pixel XL-kích cỡ screen, và it’s big, bright, và beautiful. It’s not an AMOLED panel though, but an IPS LCD screen that measures 5.5-inches & has a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. It can’t compete with the Pixel XL, the Galaxy S8, or the LG G6; but holds its own against the OnePlus 3T, various Honor phones, và even some more expensive Huawei devices like the P10 Plus.


Minimalist, stylish, và pleasant lớn hold, it’s surprising the Redngươi Note 4X costs so little.


There are plenty of customization options. A Reading Mode reduces glare & cuts down on sleep-disturbing xanh light, plus adjustments can be made lớn the color and contrast, helping tailor the screen’s look to lớn your personal preference. It’s also very bright with a maximum output of 450 nits, và it’s easily viewable in bright sunlight with the brightness slider cranked right up. The ambient light sensor is quite aggressive though, và it doesn’t recognize when you’re looking at the screen, resulting in the brightness dimming at inopportune moments.

A massive sầu 4,100mAh battery keeps the screen on — that’s enormous compared to lớn most flagship smartphones. The result? At least two days use. Yep, we said, “at least.” Leave sầu the phone on standby, and use it normally through the day, & you’ll be charging on the third day. The Redmày Note 4X sips from a vast well of battery power. Unfortunately, that well isn’t quickly replenished, due to no fast-charging system, so plan for a two hour recharge when it’s close khổng lồ empty.

Android Marshmallow, & solid performance

Here’s the big difference between the older Chinese Redngươi cảnh báo 4 và the new globally compatible cảnh báo 4X: It has a Qualcomm Snaprồng 625 processor inside, rather than a MediaTek chip. The Redmi chú ý 4X is almost identical khổng lồ the international version of the cảnh báo 4 released after the Chinese version though. Confused? Don’t be, just remember the Redngươi cảnh báo 4X is the mã sản phẩm to buy, và you’ll be fine. There’s a version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, và another with 4GB of RAM & 64GB storage space. Our đánh giá Mã Sản Phẩm is the former.

Judging whether a điện thoại thông minh has enough performance isn’t that complicated. We use the phone daily, for a similar range of tasks, và if it’s slow, buggy, or annoying, it gets a big strikethrough next to its name. We’d never expect to lớn see this with a device that costs $500 or more, but one that costs less than $200? That seems more likely. The fantastic news here is the Redmi Note 4X is strikethrough không tính phí.

After a solid hour playing games, reading tin nhắn, checking social networks, và generally zipping between the trang chủ screens và different apps, the Redmày cảnh báo 4X hadn’t stuttered. Its very hard to argue against a phone that costs so little, yet performs so well. Running AnTuTu 3D benchmarking thử nghiệm returned a 62,771 score, while 3DMark’s Slingshot Extreme returned a score of 461, neither of which phối the record charts alight, but are consistent with the Snaprồng 625-powered Huawei Nova.

The phone runs Android 6.0.1, with Xiaomi’s MIUI 8.2 user interface over the top. It’s one of the best third-buổi tiệc nhỏ user interfaces out there, with the biggest change over stoông xã Android being the lack of an app drawer. All your apps are spread over multiple trang chủ pages, just like Apple’s iOS. Android purists will be annoyed by other small changes, such as the altered notification shade, custom ibé designs, & other visual tweaks throughout the operating system. Google Play came pre-installed on our phone, but be aware that due lớn the custom nature of MIUI, some apps — such as the updated Netflix app — may not work. It’s a rarity this happens though, and every other tiện ích we used operated without a problem.

Is it all good news? No. The Redmi chú ý 4X is still a mid-range phone, with a mid-range processor, và a custom UI. This means scrolling isn’t always buttery smooth, some of the transitions are a beat too slow, and in some games when the going gets really tough — driving the faskiểm tra cars in Reckless Racing 3, for example — there’s evidence of frame rate drops. Android Pay also won’t work, as there’s no NFC onboard.

Still, for the price, the Redmày cảnh báo 4X is a solid performer. It’s a shame it does not come with the lachạy thử version of Android.

Good camera

A 13-megapx rear camera sits at the top-center, and it’s good. That’s right. Good. It’s not often we get khổng lồ praise what has become a very typical camera setup, but the pictures we took with the Redngươi chú ý 4X were pleasing, offering detail, và handling challenging light in a satisfactory way.

It’s still far from perfect, and the f/2.0 aperture does limit its capabilities in low light, but show it some sunny skies or an expansive landscape, & the results are eyebrow-raisingly good. Yes, it washes out the sky on overcast days, & no, it doesn’t have two lenses or a wealth of different modes. However, take regular photos in everyday situations and you’ll likely be happy with the results.
