2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Pleasant design, sturdy build
  • Quick and accurate fingerprint scanner
  • Mostly simple, stock Android experience, and the few software-addons that Motorola does add (Moto Display, Moto Actions) are always useful
  • Decent performance in daily basic use (although anything more than that will make it struggle)
  • Excellent battery life - comfortably lasts 2 days with moderate use - you can leave your charger at home!
  • Splash resistant
  • 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]
  • Display resolution definitely could have been better
  • Gets slow at times, when pushed with heavy apps - so its basically meant for casual use (think email/WhatsApp/Social Networking)
  • Average camera - pictures are sometimes fuzzy even in well-lit conditions
  • Camera performance is improved, but ordinary low-light shots and slow processing in HDR mode still leave something to be desired
