Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime Review Pros & Cons: Awesomeness Returns under Budget

Review of Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime at a Glance:-

Xiaomi is one of the brands which offers "value for money" kind of Smartphone, Now there are many factors they impressed us with Redmi 4 Prime featuring great specs in such a sweet budget. However, we also found some Advantages and Disadvantages. The main attraction of phone are 5.0 Inches Full HD Display, Snapdragon 625 Chipset, 13 MP Primary | 5 MP Secondary camera, Android v6.0 Marshmallow OS (MIUI 8), 32 GB Internal | 128 GB SD Card Support, 3 GB RAM and 4100 mAh Battery. 

An Attractive Design
The design is now much better in this Model than traditional Xiaomi design, the metallic unibody is well crafted especially from the rear corners that are curved to provide better griping and look as well. The volume and power keys are located on the right edge with tactile feedback and the left has SIM card tray slot, on the top you will get a 3.5 mm jack for inserting Headphone cable. 

5 inches Vibrant FHD Display
It is really pleasant to watch photos and videos in such a neat and clean 5.0 inches screen. The Full HD resolutions with 441ppi of display density is enough to have a good visual experience, Not only display configuration but the brightness, saturation level, and colour exposure are well balanced making the display more crisper. The black is not deeper like AMOLED but still, it is without any nuisance to provide a good legibility with wide viewing angles. 

Photo Quality with 13 MP Camera
Here to capture your favorite moments phone is equipped with the 13 MP primary camera with PDAF to help the lock focus on the object takes quite good daylight photographs, The photos come out with the decent amount of details while zooming. But it is again failed to impress in the same way during night photography, where the colour is unidentified by sensor causes noise. Although in some case Dual LED flash is helping but still not enough to form an expected quality picture. 5 MP Camera is quick and sufficient for taking some random selfies, although for best quality selfies you also need a good source of light rays in your face. 

Power of Snapdragon 625
The power of performance is controlled by the Snapdragon 625 SoC which is mid range Chipset from the Qualcomm, This octa CPU is clocked at the 2.0 GHz frequency. you can use the phone for multitasking and mid level gaming, Although phone also supports high end gaming but in the lower graphical setting. This is not powerful as Snapdragon 820 but it has enough power to manage and process all the daily tasks without any trouble.

Huge Non-Removable Battery
The 4100 mAh power source is one the best thing associated with this phone, as it can provide the backup for nearly 2 days if used in proper way. It also Supports Quick Charge to charge such a huge capacity battery. The given charger takes around 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
