On February 14, Xiaomi Redmi Note4X finally officially went on sale. And now, we already got the new phone, please follow me to take a look at the new device.
First of all, we can see a white packaging box, open the packaging box, you will find that this new phone isn’t “Hatsune Miku” customized version. The packing box still uses a consistent concise design, on the packaging box surface, we can also see a logo of “4X” .
Taking a look at the front of the phone, you will find that the Redmi Note4X is very similar to the previous Redmi Note 4, the new Redmi Note 4X also uses a 5.5-inch display screen, covered with 2.5D glass, the resolution is 1080p.
Turning the phone over, we can see that the Redmi Note 4X also adopts a metal body, but not use an unibody design.
Specially, Redmi Note4X back cover uses a three-stage design, the upper and lower ends and the middle section of the fuselage have a certain color difference(As shown in the image). Redmi Note 4 back shell is a whole piece of metal, using nano-injection molding process, so it look more like an integral whole.
At the top of the Redmi Note4X, the sensor and the front-facing camera use a symmetrical design, looks relatively structured. And as with the previous generation, the Redmi Note4X comes with 5.0MP front-facing camera, support beauty and selfies.
Because the fingerprint recognition was placed in the back, the bottom still uses a traditional design: Home key in the middle, the return back on the right, multi-task menu key in the left.
Redmi Note 4X supports dual SIM card, a large and a small, also supports memory card expansion. The Volume button and the power button are designed on the right side of the fuselage. At the bottom, there are the speaker and the Micro USB port, but we did not see the Type-C port.
At the top of the fuselage, there are 3.5mm headphone jack, and infrared sensor.
The system is still the same, running the latest MIUI 8 which is based on Android 6.0. This version of the system got greatly improved in the color, interactive animation, system fonts and other aspects, the function is to provide the application/mobile phone avatar and RichScan to do questions and other functions.Of course, my personal favorite is the dual system, can hide a lot of small secret.
Redmi Note4X main camera is 13.0MP. The samples are as follows:
Redmi Note4X camera has a 5-chip lens, the largest F2.0 aperture and double color temperature flash light, while supporting PDAF phase focus, focusing speed is not fast, imaging effect is still OK.
What is the biggest difference between the Redmi Note 4X and the previous generation? Processor! Redmi Note 4 is equipped with 2.1GHz Mediatek Helio X20 ten-core processor, with 20nm process, GPU is Mail-T880, Redmi Note 4 has been benchmarked on Antutu, after running on Antutu, the Redmi Note 4 scores a total of 85671 points on the benchmarking app.
And this time, Redmi Note 4X is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon625 processor, with 14nm process, using octa-core architecture, clocked at up to 2.0GHz, graphics processor is Adreno506. Coupled with this processor, its Antutu benchmarking test scores over 60000 points.
Snapdragon625 PK Mediatek Helio X20, although the Antutu benchmarking test is slightly inferior, but both two phones come with 4100mAh battery, Snapdragon625 power consumption and heat will win, the performance is also more stable, because it uses a more advanced process technology.
To put it simply, the biggest highlight of Redmi Note 4X is equipped with Snapdragon625 processor. But for this processor, Redmi Note4X’s craftsmanship design done a certain compromise, so it is slightly inferior to the previous-generation Redmi Note 4.
If Redmi Note 4 VS Redmi Note 4X, which one will you choose? It really makes people very tangled, because the two products are currently priced at 999 yuan, the price is the same, both are quite affordable. But I personally think that if you love to play games, pay attention to the power consumption, you might as well choose Redmi Note 4X. If you pay more attention to the appearance design, you may choose Redmi Note 4.
In addition, Redmi Note 4X “Hatsune Miku” customized version is upcoming, priced at 1299 yuan.
