After the dominance of Redmi Note 3, its successor, Redmi Note 4 is now taking the world by storm in the mid-budget segment. And here comes Xiaomi, back to its roots. “One Million Note 4 Sold, Let’s Give Our Fans Another ‘Affordable’ Gift”.

What We Don’t Like
- Polycarbonate body instead of an all metal one
- We would have appreciated Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.
What We Like
- Considering the Rs 5,999 price-tag, there is nothing about the Xiaomi Redmi 4A that is not liable, hell, this the best VFM smartphone. From the 13MP rear camera to 2GB of RAM, features like this in the most affordable category has been missing since the dawn of time.
- Another highlight if the Xiaomi Redmi 4A is the massive 3120 mAh battery with fast charging support and by far, this the best cell we have seen in this segment.
- 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC coupled with Adreno 308 GPU, 2GB RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage is one of the best performance packages we have ever seen. This will eliminate shutter speed and even reduced the lag while gaming to the lowest. As for graphics, Adreno 308 GPU was and is still the best chip in the budgeted category smartphones.
Should You Buy One?
If your budget is anywhere around Rs 5000-7000 and you are looking for a new companion, Xiaomi Redmi 4A should be your ultimate buy. There is nothing better than this currently available in the Indian market, period.
