Xiomi recently launched the Xiaomi Redmi 4A which falls into the affordable price range smartphones which you can buy and provides the user with a plethora of good features for its price,Lets find out whether this phone will be able to stand out and create an impact in the entry level smart phone market.
The Major Features and Specifications are discussed Below
The Xiaomi Redmi 4A offers a premium metallic look at first glance but actually is a poly carbonate body and it surely does look beautiful and gives a classy feel to it and the device fits perfectly in one’s hands and the body is easy to grip and feels high-end and the body does not easily slip from ones hand easily.
Also the glossy look makes the device stand out and gives it a premium look and feel at first glance and the ergonomics of the device are built for easy reach and handling and the volume button and the power button lie on the right side whereas the sim slot is on the left,the device feels compact and sturdy and is a surprising good built in this price range.
The 5-inch ips LCD display with pixel density of 296 ppi fares pretty well in indoor as well as outdoor conditions and it can be viewed in bright sunlight not very easily but can be viewed when brightness is set to the max.
The color reproduction and contrasts is decent but not as sharp as other Redmi phones hence the display falls quite average but is not bad either as watching movies or casual use is offers a good experience on the 5-inch HD display with (720 x 1280 pixel) resolution,it also has a reading mode which softens the colors and makes it easier on the eye.
The touch responses on the Xiaomi Redmi 4A are recognized easily and the device does not lag or shows signs of late responses hence overall the display is good.
You should not expect high performance from a budget smartphone in this range and hence performance is as expected it sports a Qualcomm 425 Soc processor which is the most affordable chip Xiomi could have gone for to provide this price as going for anything else would’ve surely jumped the price up a little.
It fares pretty decent on benchmark tests like quadrant and others but as we said you cant really expect high performance with a phone of this budget but it surely gets the job done with dual account setups on the same device and also scroll screenshot features included and no multitasking issues and playing lighthearted games can be easily achieved on the 4A and browsing the internet with synchronous activities offer a good experience.
Battery is one of the strong features of this phone as it boasts a 3120 mAh battery which juices the components well and does it for a long time very nicely and gives the user the capability to use the phone freely without actually worrying about the battery or running around to charge it up as it can go on for a full day on a full charge with moderate or high usage and even charging the device does not take a lot of time and one can also enable the power saving mode that kills unnecessary apps.
The Redmi 4A has a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera for the selfie enthusiasts,also it does shoot videos in 1080p and also 720 in 30 fps which can be chosen according to ones preference and has features like burst mode and facial recognition etc.
But the images seem to turn out little grainy under low lighting and self focus doesn’t seem to work too well some times but in good light it does mange to deliver good photos and multiple effects can be accessed easily with just a touch on the display it is pretty adequate camera nevertheless.
It is an exceptional device at such a price point with powerful yet limited features but if you are a first time smartphone user or a person who just needs a secondary decent smartphone you should can consider buying it because the Xiaomi Redmi 4A has almost everything which you would want at a more than basic level from a android smartphone like a decent camera ,good looks and a really nice battery backup.
