2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Full metal unibody design, and good build quality
  • Rounded sides make it comfortable to hold
  • The fingerprint scanner is generally quick and easy to use
  • Very good display - bright and vivid with decent sunlight legibility - great for watching videos and games
  • Samsung's UI over Android 6.0 is neat and simple while adding a number of additional features like one-handed operation mode, smart alert makes the phone vibrate when you pick it up to notify you about missed calls and messages, easy mute, S bike mode, Ultra data saving mode, and locking/privacy options
  • Decent all-round performance - handles almost everything you throw at it - including games, and multi-tasking
  • Decent rear and front cameras under daylight conditions - most of the shots taken by the smartphone have decent colours and are crisp - and the handset is able to lock focus quickly
  • Video recording quality is decent too and audio is also crisp
  • Decent loudspeaker output
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
  • 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 fingerprint scanner works well mostly, but can be iffy at times
  • Tends to crash/heat-up occasionally when putting under stress
  • Low light camera performance could have been better
  • Lacks support for quick charging (which is present in some of its competitors)
  • Lacks ambient light sensor, gyroscope and magnetic sensor
  • Camera performance is improved, but ordinary low-light shots and slow processing in HDR mode still leave something to be desired
