Comparison Points

The Redmi Note 4 just gets better ratings than the Samsung Galaxy J7 2016. Overall the Galaxy J7 2016 is a super device with beautiful AMOLED display panel on the top. Redmi Note 4 here comes top in terms of benchmark and performance while Samsung handset here is all about stability and it wins in terms of camera performance by closer margin.

Coming to the software you might not be loving the MIUI 8 and not even the TouchWiz UI found on Xiaomi and Samsung phones respectively.

At the end it remains as the matter of choice because both the handsets are available in one or the other country on which both of them might not be available. India, China and some other Asian countries sales both the handsets.
