Nearly a year after its worldwide release, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x continues to dominate the Philippine market. What makes it a popular choice for the people? Let’s find out.
Unveiled in April of 2017, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x made a splash in the international scene as the shinier and sassier upgrade to Xiaomi’s previous offerings.
On Build and Construction
For a budget phone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x is as good-looking and sturdy as it gets.
Consumers easily commended its premium build and design as the Chinese giant opted to swap the plastic parts of the older models with new shiny metallic bands for the Note 4x.
Its slim bezels were also complemented with rear-end sloping edges. This makes the phone not only a more elegant sight to look at, but also grip-friendlier and more ergonomic.
Aside from that, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x still looks identical to the Redmi 4x, in terms of design and construction. It still boasts of a hefty 5.5-inch screen with a full HD display with 401ppi pixel density.
The screen, along with the 5-MP front-end camera, is also topped with a curved glass. While there are no releases as to what type of glass was used for the Redmi Note 4x, the glass is strong and is scratch resistant.
The curved texture of the glass also helps create a more grip-friendly, ergonomic vibe.
On Hardware and Performance
Definitely one of the biggest upgrades that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x has to offer to the market lies in its hardware.
With this launch, Xiaomi opted for 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 for a processor – a huge leap from the MediaTek processors of the older releases.
The Redmi Note 4x also comes with 3GB of RAM. With this sizable amount of RAM, the Redmi Note 4x can now handle more workloads – even as you multitask – without any hiccups.
The Redmi Note 4x can also provide a better gaming experience than its predecessors.
Thanks to the phone’s Adreno 506 GPU, you can now play games with the highest settings without experiencing lags or stutters from your smartphone.
It also comes with an internal storage of up to 32GB. Storage is also expandable to 128GB through an external microSD card. This is definitely a generous amount of storage available, especially for a smartphone that’s in the budget spectrum.
On the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x Cameras
There aren’t many changes made on Redmi Note 4x’s cameras – on paper, at least.
Right off the bat, you can still spot the 13-megapixel rear-end camera equipped with a f/2.0 aperture and a phase detection autofocus.
The difference lies in the sensor: Xiaomi has replaced its previous Samsung S5K3L8 sensor with a Sony IMX258. This is a welcomed update as it hugely improved the quality of soft details and textures that the Redmi Note 4x can now capture.
As for its front-end, the Redmi Note 4x provides high-contrast selfies with its 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
One of the very few downsides, however, is its lack of wide-angle lens that makes it harder to do group-selfies.
On Battery Life
The new Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x runs on a whopping 4100mAh non-removable battery. Depending on usage, the Redmi Note 4x can last you up to two days without needing to reach out for a charger or a power bank.
With this, Xiaomi has solidified its hold as being one of the best bang-for-your-buck phones in the market – definitely one of the many reasons why its hype is still real.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x successfully combines a mishmash of important and attention-grabbing features under an impressive banner of budget-friendliness.
The build is elegant yet sturdy; pictures come out crisp and detailed. The battery life will last you for days without ever needing to recharge.
What an impressive combination if you ask us.
Definitely, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x is game-changer in the realm of budget smartphones. It’s a great find that’s definitely worth its current hype.
