Xiaomi redmi note 4x smartphones for sale

  -  
“With a brilliant design, big battery, and bargain price, the Redmi note 4X is crying out for international support.”

Xiaomi may capture headlines for stunning, high-power smartphones like the ngươi Mix and the ngươi 6, which are great devices; but arguably the company does low-cost hardware with strong spec lists better. Its latest is the Redmi note 4X, an update to lớn 2016’s Redmi chú ý 4, which costs about $160 depending on the color you choose. That’s not very much money for a điện thoại cảm ứng thông minh today, especially one with features like the cảnh báo 4X.

Like all xiaomi phones, if you want to own one outside China, you have khổng lồ use an import service khổng lồ get it. It’s not difficult, but it can be a challenge down the line if the phone breaks, and making sure it connects lớn your chosen network. It’s extremely tempting khổng lồ pick up a $160 phone that looks lượt thích it should cost twice that, so should you?

We’ve been using the Redmi chú ý 4X for the last two weeks to find out, và 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 Redmi chú ý 4, little has changed with the Redmi note 4X. Two small screws on both sides of the MicroUSB charging port have 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 cảnh báo 4X a modern, sleek looking phone you’ll be proud to hold.

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

If you lượt thích phones without much branding, the Redmi cảnh báo 4X will please you. Only a Mi hình ảnh is etched into the back, và the usual three app android capacitive keys sit below the screen, glowing when the phone is awake. The cảnh báo 4X is available in several different colors, including silver, gold, black, và 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, & to find such chất lượng hues on a phone so competitively priced is very welcome.

Minimalist, stylish, và pleasant khổng lồ hold, it’s surprising the Redmi lưu ý 4X costs so little.

Bright screen, long-lasting battery

The Redmi lưu ý 4X has a px XL-size screen, và it’s big, bright, and beautiful. It’s not an AMOLED panel though, but an IPS LCD screen that measures 5.5-inches and has a 1920 x 1080 px 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, & pleasant to lớn hold, it’s surprising the Redmi cảnh báo 4X costs so little.


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

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

Android Marshmallow, và solid performance

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

Judging whether a smartphone has enough performance isn’t that complicated. We use the phone daily, for a similar range of tasks, & if it’s slow, buggy, or annoying, it gets a big strikethrough next to lớn its name. We’d never expect 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 chú ý 4X is strikethrough free.

After a solid hour playing games, reading email, checking social networks, và generally zipping between the home screens & different apps, the Redmi note 4X hadn’t stuttered. Its very hard to argue against a phone that costs so little, yet performs so well. Running AnTuTu 3d benchmarking test 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 Snapdragon 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-party user interfaces out there, with the biggest change over stock app android being the lack of an ứng dụng drawer. All your apps are spread over multiple trang chủ pages, just lượt thích Apple’s iOS. App android purists will be annoyed by other small changes, such as the altered notification shade, custom icon designs, và other visual tweaks throughout the operating system. Google Play came pre-installed on our phone, but be aware that due khổng lồ 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 ứng dụng we used operated without a problem.

Is it all good news? No. The Redmi note 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, và in some games when the going gets really tough — driving the fastest cars in Reckless Racing 3, for example — there’s evidence of frame rate drops. App android Pay also won’t work, as there’s no NFC onboard.

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

Good camera

A 13-megapixel rear camera sits at the top-center, & 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 Redmi cảnh báo 4X were pleasing, offering detail, và handling challenging light in a satisfactory way.

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