XIAOMI REDMI 4A is a low budget smartphone with 4G connectivity and complimented with many amazing features. This is one of the budget smartphones. It is a very premium looking device. Let’s get on to the Latest Xiaomi Redmi 4A review.

DESIGN

Xiaomi Redmi 4A comes with a premium design. And it still has the metallic body. Along with the phone, we will get a basic charger which is a 5V 1A charger. It is not a fast charger but again considering the price point it is ok. The handset feels very light to start off with. The battery is sealed inside. It has a LED flash and 13MP rear-facing camera and on the top, we have a 3.5 mm headphone jack and this one still retains the IR blaster which is amazing because many of the devices are very expensive devices and these days don’t come with IR blaster and secondary noise cancellation mic.

XIAOMI REDMI 4A review

The volume rocker and the power button, they are made of plastic.  The main mic is at the bottom and there is also a micro USB at the side you will the sim tray at the left side which s hybrid sim card slot. You can add two sim cards or one sim card and a micro SD card. It would be better if it had a dedicated SD card slot. The three capacitive touch buttons are placed on the bottom panel. It has dimensions of 139.9 x 70.4 x 8.5 mm and weighs around 131.5 grams. The device is available in Gold, Gray, rose gold colors.

DISPLAY

The device is a dual sim smartphone with 4G connectivity. Supplemented with Dolby Atmos® audio enhancement. Provided with hybrid sim slot.

PERFORMANCE

Out of the 16GB internal storage, you get 8.37 GB free storage space.  The navigation buttons on the bottom are not backlit so that is one thing you have to note.  It is a budget oriented 4G smartphone you get Xiaomi.  It is also provided with a compass app. This phone is not going to replace Redmi 4S as it doesn’t have any fingerprint sensor. Comparing to the other Xiaomi devices this quite a different phone as it concentrated more on the styling rather than the functionality of this device. The good thing is that if you take the phone directly to the outdoors the screen is easily visible. It comes with hybrid sim slot.

XIAOMI REDMI 4A price

Talking about the gaming, the screen quality is decent for gaming. It is running games like Dead Trigger 2 without any issues. The graphic quality is also ok. I also tried playing heavier games like Asphalt 8 and I played the game at highest graphic settings, I noticed there are many frame drops and when I played at medium graphic settings it is fine.

CAMERA                                                                                                        

Looking at the camera, it has a 13MP rear-facing camera. You have tap to focus. And the front camera is 5MP. We can’t expect any miracles with camera considering the price point. But however, it is decent enough in my opinion. Again I have to test the camera a lot more.

XIAOMI REDMI 4A camera

VERDICT

Overall at the price of Xiaomi Redmi 4a mobile in India Rs 6,000, what you get is incredible and I'm sure that you can buy this smartphone.

FEATURES:

Huawei Honor 6X is a smartphone with best features. It is powered by the powerful HiSilicon Kirin 655 Octa Core (4x2.1 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4x1.7 GHz Cortex-A53) and coupled with Mali-T830MP2. It is running on the OS Android v6.0 marshmallow and there is a planned upgrade to the Nougat. It has an internal memory of 32/64GB and 3/4GB RAM. The expandable memory provided up to 256GB.

Having primary camera of Dual 12 MP + 2 MP, phase detection autofocus, LED flash with LED flash.

PERFORMANCE:

This is a familiar UI for the Huawei phones with motion UI. This device supports FM radio. It is provided with a pedometer which tracks your steps. You have the on screen buttons. The device is snappy because of the 4GB RAM. Generally, the Kirin 655 performs well as it is an octa-core processor which is similar to the snapdragon 430.

The unfortunate thing about the Honor 6X is the speaker which tends to be quieter than a lot of the phones and it also doesn’t have tap to NFC. In my experience fingerprint sensor is great. It is very accurate and fast to unlock and really ran into the issues with reading my fingerprint. The fingerprint sensor can be used to take photos videos or answer the phone calls stopped alarms and bring down the notification shade by swiping down or browse through photos in the gallery by swiping left to right.

                        honor 6X - fingerprint                                  

Talking about the display, it is a fine display. It is plenty sharp and gets bright enough to comfortably see outdoors but the colors are pretty washed out which is only the problem with the screen. It is still perfectly usable and the large size still provides for a good experience with browsing the web playing games or watching YouTube and considering this is a rather inexpensive smartphone the flaws on the display are much more easily forgivable. It has no problem with the graphically demanding games with smooth performance and frame rates. I would say that the performance is one of the biggest strength.

CAMERA:

Looking at the camera which is the highlighting point in this device. You will find the settings when you swipe towards the left. And modes when you swipe towards the right. The camera UI is pretty simple. It is also provided with object tracking you will also get a pro mode in the video as well.

                   

The shutter speed is good enough. On the initial impressions, it is doing a great job in macro photographs. And you also get the decent depth. If you are looking for a camera smartphone this might be a good choice.

VERDICT:

The Honor 6X phone performance wise, it has a good strength. The design is also good. The price in India of Huawei Honor 6X is around Rs 16,000/- which is reasonable with this features as well as specifications.

You can also use the beauty mode to make your selfies look beautiful.

Vivo V5 Plus - camera

Even if you are a night owl your front flash gives you better pictures with decent details. The front flash on the Vivo V5 is the best I have seen. The 16Mp rear camera captures much more detailed photographs. The color and the reproduction is better in the HDR mode of the rear camera. Even when the HDR mode is off it gives great details and makes the final image impressive.

The overall camera performance is good. But in the pricing point of view, it is par with the Oppo F1 plus. It is provided with a smart split feature. Where you can split the screen into parts, you can watch a video and chat simultaneously.

Finally, at the end of the day, it will finally blow down to the price tag. This smartphone is available at a price of Rs 27,900 which is currently high. It got a great set of cameras. This is an incredible smartphone which is overpriced.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Mobile

15450.00

Hi, in this review we are going to have a detailed overview about the Redmi Note 4. The phone feels sleeker than the Redmi Note 3.  Xiaomi is going to sell three different variants in India. The first base variant will have 2GB RAM and convert 32GB of internal storage and there is also one more model that comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage and the other one is 4GB of RAM that will have 64GB storage.

DESIGN:

In terms of design, the device feels similar to the Redmi Note 3. The built quality has certainly improved now. This one is powered by snapdragon 625 chipset and that’s the main difference I would say. There is a fingerprint scanner at the back and an IR blaster on the top. You also get a 3.5mm audio jack at the top and a secondary noise cancellation mic.

Redmi Note 4 - design

The built quality has improved the volume rocker and the power on/off button. On the bottom, it has one speaker. The device again comes with a hybrid sim slot on the left. Moving to the rear facing camera they have a 13Mp camera and the Xiaomi said that they have put a new sensor in the Indian Version. And the front-facing camera is a 5MP. The dimensions of the smartphone are 151mm x 76mm x 8.54mm. The weight of the mobile is 165grams.

DISPLAY:    

Redmi Note 4 comes with a 5.5-inch display IPS LCD display giving around 16M colors. It comes with a 2.5D glass which is easier to work which Redmi Note 3 doesn’t have.

Redmi Note 4 - display

It is packed with full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. It is a multi-touch capacitive screen. It has a brightness of 380 cd/m². Having a contrast ratio of 1000:1. Viewing angles are decent. Has 72% NTSC color gamut. Has night display mode and reading mode.

FEATURES:

Redmi Note 4 is running on an octa-core 2.0 GHz processor with snapdragon 625 chipset. It is running on the Android Marshmallow v6.0. It has an internal memory of 32/64GB (for 4GB RAM) and RAM of 2/3/4GB LPDDR3. The expandable memory provided up to 128GB. Having primary camera of 13MP with LED flash with geo-tagging, autofocus, touch focus, face, and panorama and smile detection. Stereo speakers are given. Wi-Fi, Hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS options are available.

Redmi Note 4 - features

The primary camera records video at 720p@30fps and also 720p 120fps slow-motion video recording. 5MP Secondary camera is provided. The secondary camera is provided with Smart and Pro Beautify. Gravity sensor, IR proximity sensor, Gyroscope, Ambient light sensor, Digital compass sensors are present.

Moving to the battery this one is having a 4100mAh Li-Ion Non-removable battery. It comes with fingerprint sensors with 5 fingerprint memory. It has dual sim device with GSM and HSPA support. You can see the viewing angles are good.

PERFORMANCE:

The battery performance is awesome as it is combined with a 625 snapdragon chipset with the 4100mAh battery. You will get around 10 to 12 hrs. on screen time on a single day. So the battery life is amazing on this. So you don’t have to worry about the battery life but again regarding the charging.

Redmi Note 4 - performance

The Xiaomi has improved the camera performance on this new Redmi Note 4. It got the single speaker just like the Note 3 where the same problem repeated as the sound output is not good. Here you are getting the type C USB port and that’s what we are getting. Moving to the other things it is similar to the Redmi Note 3. The fingerprint scanner is good on this one.

CAMERA:

Looking at the camera performance, they have really improved the camera. It has tap to focus and you can take snaps very easily and on this Redmi Note 4, the images do not over expose and the Redmi Note 3 always had that problem. The Redmi Note 4 is really an improved version of the Redmi note 3 cameras. And the difference makes sense.

Redmi Note 4 - camera

But I doubt that it can compete with the Moto G4 plus because this one does not have laser autofocus system and with very close objects I notice that it having difficulty in focusing but nevertheless the camera looks to be better than the Redmi Note 3.

VERDICT:

Finally talking about the worth of the device this is certainly a good smartphone and it has this improved camera but with the competitive market, it lags a bit. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 three variants are available in three prices. The 2GB variant is around 10K and the 3 GB is around 11K and the 4GB is around 13K

PERFORMANCE:

Comparing to the other Motorola devices this quite a different phone as it concentrated more on the styling rather than the functionality of this device. The fingerprint sensor is also good and Motorola has done a good job. It is a 1080p IPs screen and the screen quality on this device is very good. It also has this auto brightness sensor.

The good thing is that if you take the phone directly to the outdoors the screen is easily visible. It comes with hybrid sim slot. The cellular call quality is fine and there are no issues. You get the same stock experience with the UI and is regular in previous Moto devices. Yes, Dolby sound is better. Many are saying that it is an AMOLED screen but actually it is an IPS screen.

Moto M - perforrmance

The best thing is they have preinstalled Microsoft office. There is no lot of bloatware and there are not even Motorola specifics apps also. The proximity sensor was not apt as when I take the call, the screen is not shutting down. The Dolby Atoms sound is the best feature you get on this smartphone. And it quite better when you connected to the headset. The battery life is slightly above average. For a typical working day,

Moto M - benchmarks

it is lasting for a day. I sort of have the mixed results with the gaming.  It can run many games but with the high-end games, it has some legs. And this is not a perfect phone for gaming. The ANTUTU benchmark score is 54823 and the Geek benchmark score is 910 on a single core and 3503 on multi-core.

CAMERA:

Talking about the camera, it got a good shutter speed. In outdoor lighting conditions, the camera seemed to perform well. The camera takes some good shots.

Moto M - cam

When you move to the indoor and outdoor conditions the camera really struggles. It is not a perfect camera like you find in the previous devices. Overall it is a mediocre camera. But the front camera is strangely better compared to the previous devices.

VERDICT:

Overall at the price of the Rs 16000, I had very mixed results with this device and it is sort of overpriced what Motorola is providing. Moto M is the best smartphone available at price of Rs 16K/-

PERFORMANCE:

The UI resembles the Apple ios quite a bit. We just wish Oppo had gone with Android marshmallow rather than lollipop which is a bit old now. Performance is quite good as far as apps and 4G connectivity via sandstone. The fingerprint sensor is quick and it can be used to lock apps. You can even program to launch an app or dial a number directly after unlocking the phone.

The speaker is fairly loud and the audio quality is good. Thanks to the software announcements. The built-in battery will easily last more than a day on a single charge. We managed to get little overt 10 hrs of continuous video playback which is good. Unfortunately, the phone doesn’t support fast charging. F1s gets much more cosmetic update than its predecessor which makes a standard among the competition.

But we like things such as higher resolution, display and we think its hyper manufacturers retire android lollipop. Apart from this, the metal body is beautiful and those who love the style will appreciate the latest version of the colored OS. I played Leo’s fortune which is the most graphic intensive game and it handles pretty well.

It has no frame drops and no lag. With Unkilled the performance is good. You can hardly notice stutters. The game plays smooth and responsive. The Geekbench mark scores of the device are 707 on a single core and 2935 on the multi-core. 21572 On quadrant benchmarks. The AnTuTu score is 41406.

CAMERA:

The main highlight of the phone is the 16Mp front camera which produced details shorts even in less than ideal lighting conditions. The screen flash is more powerful this time around which helps in low light situations.

oppo F1S - camera

The camera app is similar to what we have seen before. You can snap a picture by the touch or raising a hand. Even you do get many modes to choose from including beautify 4.0. The rear 13MP camera also captures good landscapes and macro shots with good detail and quick focusing.                                                                

VERDICT:

The Oppo F1s has a good set of cameras and the battery life is pretty solid. It is happy to see that we get the high-end features at the low-end price. If you are looking for a good selfie smartphone then this one should be considered as at the end of the day all boils down to the price tag. So this our review about the Oppo F1s.
