Xiaomi's Redmi Note is big, bold, and cheap to boot (review)

 

Xiaomi's 5.5-inch Note may lack the latest hardware, but blends affordability with just the right performance.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note has a vibrant display, a sharp camera, dual-SIM capability, and an easy-to-understand interface. Even unlocked it's quite affordable.

The Redmi Note runs the aging Android Jelly Bean OS, and the glossy plastic back feels oily after prolonged use. There's also no 4G LTE.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note delivers a great display and satisfying performance at a low price, but skip it if you crave the most cutting-edge smartphone features.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G Smartphone Review

 

The red dragon. Xiaomi has become the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, but the company's devices aren't yet prevalent in Europe or America. We took a look at the Redmi Note 4G phablet to see whether the imported Asian device is a...

Stable case, Respectable speaker, Good cameras, Quick WLAN and LTE, Good speech quality, Reliable touchscreen, Stable viewing angles, Remains cool

Back side shows fingerprints, Warranty claims could be expensive, Low display resolution, Some software aimed at Chinese market, Defective power supply adapter

Yes, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G's performance is considerably weaker than the competing phablets. Yes, 8 GB of storage space is small, and a resolution of 1280x720 pixels isn't much for a big smartphone. But at a price of less than 200 Euros (~$227),...

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G review

 

solid performer in sub 10K category with 4G compatibility

Smooth performance, good rear and front cameras, better battery life than its competitors, expandability up-to 64GB, 4G compatibility

Bulky design and plastic construction, MIUI still crashes, only 4.98 GB available out of 8 GB storage

Redmi Note 4G is a great performer in sub 10K category with the power and specifications it offers. However, Micromax’s Yureka steals the limelight this time with a lower price tag, Cyanogen OS and a better design.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G Review- The Budget Shifu

 

Redmi Note 4G is a high end on budget like its 3G variant, rather multiple times better; the ‘do all, low paul' device you have been waiting for.

Vibrant display ; Smooth UI performance ; High end optics ; Commendable battery backup ; Awesome sound processor

Heavy ; Slippery smooth back

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G comes out to be one of the best Xiaomi devices ever. It’s heavy, but that’s pretty much the only bad thing about it. In 10k segment, it’s difficult to find a top notch device that is fully a multimedia freak, performs great every...

A good handset that offers 4G on budget.

Great for watching movies; Pleasant UX; Good battery life, 4G LTE on budget.
