Impressive - Looks, Design, and Performance:
Starting at ₹6,999, the Redmi 4 all-new design which is very much similar to Redmi Note 4 has got impressive ergonomics. Undoubtedly, this is the best 4G VoLTE smartphone in a sub ₹10K range. With massive 4100 mAh battery, Redmi 4 is the beast both in terms of performance and battery. The imaging specs are another strong point. The 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera enables the user to take excellent images in daylight as well as indoors. The addition of fingerprint sensor on an entry-level phone makes a huge difference in terms of acceptance.
Though the handset runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the company promises Android Nougat preview and is definitely a steal. If you happen to miss the first sale, then don’t worry. You can make it through the next sale scheduled on May 30, 2017, at 12 noon on Amazon India and Mi.com website. I’m lucky enough to grab Redmi 4 3GB variant. Have you purchased the handset?
