We got to give it to Xiaomi for pricing Redmi Note 4 aggressively. The 2 GB model with 16 GB built-in storage is priced at 135 USD [Rs 9999 in India] while the 3 GB model with 64 GB storage costs 180 USD.
Storage, Software & Features
With the above paragraph it’s clear that Xiaomi has adopted same technique just as it does with every other Mi phone – availability in two different variants. That’s actually good because apart from storage and RAM size every other specs remains same and with that it finds it place among the budget phone under $120 as well. For a people of budget $200, it will be a straight-forward pick with little or less competition.
From software front we have the latest MIUI 8 build which is customized version based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Fingers-crossed for the Android Nougat update on it.
It terms of features we have the USB Type-C port replacing the traditional USB 2.0 for charging and data transfer. We also have a fingerprint sensor on the back just below the primary camera.
