Redmi Note 4
Camera Produces Decent Photos 
It has 13 MP sensor for the rear camera while the previous generation of Redmi Note had 16 MP camera, we were expecting a great camera in this phone but once again Xiaomi launched it with an average camera. If you are amateur smartphone photographer this handset will hardly please you for the photography especially for low light scenes. The daylight landscape photos are pretty good, 5 MP front camera is not so disappointing, that is capable of taking delightful selfies.

Power Performance by Snapdragon 625
This is good to see for a customer that Xiaomi launching this budget friendly mid-range handset with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-core processor. There are three variants of this smartphone 2 GB RAM+ 32 GB Internal, 3 GB RAM+ 32 GB and 4 GB +64 GB Internal card support. So we will recommend that if you are searching for gaming device go for 3GB or 4GB RAM version so the CPU can utilize its full capabilities in graphic intensive gaming. Phone perform smooth in multitasking and switching between different apps is also trouble free.

Good Battery performance
The battery capacity is 4100 mAh, in a 5.5 inches device, this is enough for taking the phone for the whole day without worrying about the charging. however, we are expecting the USB Type-C cable support with quick charging support, unfortunately the company doesn't include this component in the smartphone.
