Inside the package

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 comes in a package that contains device, usb cable, charger, user manual and head set and warranty card.

Opinion

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is an affordable smartphone with excellent features embedded in it. Design wise it is good and perfect which brings good look. It offers full HD with better resolution while at the the same time it is capable enough to perform multiple tasks at single time. Camera is one of the most important specification that we consider in smartphones and this mobile has got an excellent camera to shot perfect images. The dual tone led flash helps us to click images in any lighting but still delivers pixel perfect photos or videos. But one the drawback that can be corrected is it has got only one slot for micro sim as well as microSD card. This creates lots of mess if we like to have expandable storage and another sim at same time.

Though this smartphone is using latest software with huge number of preloaded application, all those may not be required for every user. Hence this drawback can be corrected by allowing some of the preloaded applications with uninstalling option. Otherwise this is one of the best smartphone that can be afforded.
