2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Very good build quality - solid, premium, compact and feels good when held in hand
  • The compact design also works well for one-handed operations
  • Accurate fingerprint sensor at the back
  • Good 5.5-inch IPS 2.5D HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection - good brightness levels, good color reproduction, good viewing angles
  • Almost Stock Android UI keeps things nice and simple - the only added apps are from Amazon such as Amazon Shopping, Prime Video and Amazon Kindle, and a 10.or care app for customer service from the brand
  • The 10.or Care app helps you to diagnose various parts of the device including a battery, RAM, Wi-fi and more - with this app, you can also book for mobile repair, get the service estimates and you can also get in touch customer care either through call or email - the integrated service support is definitely a plus point
  • Good day-to-day performance powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 - the chipset is good for casual usage ranging from browsing the internet, listening to songs, chatting and watching videos (it is not meant though for intensive gaming or multi-tasking between heavy apps)
  • Decent rear camera - picture quality during daylight condition is good with right amount details and clarity - macro shots are especially good
  • Decent front camera for selfies - the inclusion of the front flash helps with photography at night
  • Good call quality
  • Decent loudspeaker, and decent audio quality through headset
  • Excellent battery life - with moderate use, it goes on for 2 days
  • Dedicated dual SIM tray with a separate microSD card slot on the left - unlike some of the competitors that offer Hybrid Dual Sim
  • On the whole, for day-to-day use (minus intensive gaming), this is a solid all-round device
  • Top-notch build quality
  • The polished all-metal back of the Redmi 4 makes this phone look more premium than its predecessor (and actually more similar to the more expensive Redmi Note 4)
  • Compact, and quite usable with just one hand - fits well in the hand
  • Fingerprint sensor works well, and is conveniently located
  • Nice 5-inch HD (720x1280) IPS display with 2.5D curved-edge glass - bright, sharp, and with decent viewing angles
  • Xiaomi's MIUI skin is one of the more refined Android UIs - it is clean, polished, and has a bunch of added functionality - Dual Apps, Quick Ball, One-handed mode, Child Mode, Second Space
  • Decent overall performance - on par with those of other phones powered by the Snapdragon 430 series processor
  • Good video playback performance
  • Nice attention to detail overall - such as a protective ring around the camera lens
  • Decent rear camera - a definite improvement over the Redmi 3S - is quick at focusing, and images are fairly detailed and sharp
  • Video recording at 720p and 1080p is decent too
  • Decent front camera - pictures taken in good light have a good amount of detail and decent colour tone
  • Decent call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Excellent battery life - with moderate use, lasts up to 2 days - there are also power saving modes to help squeeze more life out of each charge
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The bottom bezel is quite large and looks awkward without any physical or capacitive button on it
  • Due to the reflective display, the sunlight legibility is average
  • The rear camera is pretty good in daylight, but could have been better in low light
  • No fast charging support - so it takes over 2 and half hours to charge the phone
  • Camera performance is improved, but ordinary low-light shots and slow processing in HDR mode still leave something to be desired
  • The hybrid dual-SIM, combined with a limited 16GB of storage means that if you need both the Dual SIM functionality, as well as a memory card, you will be left with no option
