Redmi 4 Review–A Budget Smartphone Redefined!

Xiaomi broke through the hugely expanding mid-budget segment of the Indian smartphone market with its Redmi series. The Redmi 4, launched in 2017, is still a good buy in 2018. Fast updates, great features, superb cameras and a decent price tag - Xiaomi Redmi 4 offers everything that customers find appealing.

A careful review of the device shows, even though it seems like a ‘Lite’ version of the Redmi Note 4, such a device never really gets old.

Reviewing Redmi 4

The Redmi 4 is an upgraded model when you compare it to what came earlier: the Redmi 3S. The 4 series retains the basic configurations like the screen size and the fingerprint scanner. However, Xiaomi has put in less plastic on the new series and has made it slightly lighter, adding more features.


Let’s begin the Xiaomi Redmi 4 specifications with its design section. The device is lightweight and easily fits in one hand. The attention to details is excellent. The rear camera has, for instance, a protection ring. The logo that says, “Assembled in India” is present just below the rear camera, with a single Mi sign of the company.

This minimalist design makes the phone look attractive. Adding to this are the two classy colour variants - Champagne Gold and Matte Black.

You will find the micro USB port for charging at the bottom of the phone. This is one design element which Xiaomi has not changed.


The Xiaomi Redmi 4 has a 5-inch warm and vibrant display with a screen resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. The contrast is rich, and video playback is smooth. With the 2.5D curved glass onboard, the display has better protection.

The device comes with a 4100 mAh battery that is non-removable. Powering the device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset. This chipset was a hit worldwide back in 2017. The Snapdragon 425 processor is found in all variants of the Redmi 4. Before you purchase a Redmi 4 on EMI, make sure to choose the best variant which is suitable for your purpose and desires.
One has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The second one has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The most premium version has 4GB RAM with 32GB of native storage. All the variants have expandable memories up to 128 GB. Clearly, Xiaomi has thought out its market strategy of having various models for different budgets.


When it comes to Xiaomi Redmi 4 specifications, it cannot be complete without adding the camera features. This Chinese major has significantly upgraded the cameras and the imaging facilities from their last generation of smartphones.

A single 13-megapixel camera sits on the rear coupled with LED flash, PDAF and f/2.0 aperture. The selfie camera is a 5-megapixel sensor which clicks pretty impressive pictures. Both these cameras are capable of taking pictures in low light and are extremely handy for amateur photographers.

However, one minor problem with this device is that turning on the HDR mode of the primary camera makes Redmi 4 a bit sluggish. But you can click much better photos with this feature on. HDR also ensures that the pictures have minimum noise.
