Redmi 4 – Low-End Priced Smartphone with High-End Looks
It is quite common for most people to perceive low-end smartphones to look cheap, but the same could not be said for the Xiaomi Redmi 4. For the Redmi 4, Xiaomi has opted to follow in the footsteps of flagships by incorporating an all-metal body and a 2.5D glass to protect the screen from scratches. The metal unibody gives the Redmi 4 a sleek and refined finish – easily passable as a flagship device if based on looks alone. The Redmi 4 also comes with a fingerprint scanner mounted at the rear just under the rear camera for users to increase security and unlock the phone easily.
Redmi 4's Vivid Display with Wide Viewing Angles
In terms of the display, the Redmi 4 comes with a 5-inch screen with a 720 x 1080p resolution. The display panel delivers impressively vivid colours and clear pictures, hence you can still enjoy gaming and watching movies on the device. The viewing angles are wide and legibility is commendable both indoors and outdoors, even under direct sunlight.
Photography is an absolute joy with Redmi 4’s 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. The Redmi 4 supports PDAF phase focusing and low light picture quality enhancement technology that's usually found only in flagship smartphones. This enables the smartphone to generate sharp photos even under low light conditions.

Xiaomi’s Redmi line of smartphones has always been known to provide large battery capacities. The Redmi 4 is equipped with a 4,100mAh battery that provides the device with extended hours of usage. The battery can last up to 2 days if used normally, but even with intensive usage, the battery is capable of powering the phone through the day.
What's Inside the Redmi 4
Not only the looks and pictures are great, but you'll love what's underneath.
