If you’re craving and incredibly cheap mobile phone, to use as a backup or just for a child, the Redmi 4X is a superb choice.
- CPU: Snapdragon 435
- Cores: 1.4GHz,Octa Core
- GPU: Adreno 505
- RAM: 3GB
The specifications on the processor looks very promising, with a decent Snapdragon 435 processor and an Adreno 505 processor, the device does seem to hold enough power to run daily productivity applications, although it might hit some minor lags when you choose to multitask, nevertheless, that’s only to be expected of a $129.99 smartphone. However, it packs a surprisingly large amount of RAM, in fact 3GB of RAM, which you will never find on any other budget smartphone. Most smartphones in the industry only give you 1GB worth of RAM, which is horrible by today’s standards at this price range.
It has a 720 x 1280 pixels display, which is HD resolution, and the norm for budget smartphones.
The 16GB internal memory is decent, and actually above the average of 8GB, so memory issues shouldn’t appear often unless you are a media junkie.
Speaking of media capabilities, the Redmi 4X actually holds a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. In terms of MegaPixels, the Redmi 4X has a higher resolution than average, usually only supporting 8MP-12MP cameras for phones priced as such.
With a 4100mAh battery, we expect the 4X to have quite a long battery life, considering its low power processor and also being a smartphone that has a battery capacity nearly 40% higher than the industry average.
Hence, it is clear that the Redmi 4X is yet another Xiaomi masterpiece worth considering in the budget smartphone arena.
