Xiaomi Redmi Note 4
The Redmi Note 4 is the phone to beat in the budget segment. It features a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 2.5D curved glass, a premium design with an all-metal chassis and contoured edges, and class-leading battery life.
And with Xiaomi issuing a permanent price cut, the Redmi Note 4 is much more pocket-friendly. The variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage is now selling for Rs. 9,999, making it the best deal in the budget segment. If you need more memory and storage, Xiaomi is offering the model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage for Rs. 11,999.
The phone is now receiving the stable build of MIUI 9, which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat. If you’re new to the MIUI ecosystem, there’s plenty to look forward to: the custom ROM comes with a slew of useful features, and you can alter the look of the interface through a varied selection of themes from the store.
The camera has received a sizeable upgrade as well, and it now takes great images in daylight conditions. Overall, you’re getting a phone that offers an incredible amount of features for not a whole lot of money.
Bottom line: A premium aluminum design, great battery life, decent camera, and attractive pricing make the Redmi Note 4 the standout device in this category. For its price, there really isn’t another device that gives you more.
One more thing: The Redmi Note 4 is available online and from thousands of retail stores across the country.
