1. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

 

Xiaomi revealed the Snapdragon variant of the Redmi Note 4 last month, and since then the demand for this device is increasing day by day. The phone is a more polished version of the last year’s Redmi Note 3 which proved to be the most selling smartphone for Xiaomi in India.

The Redmi Note 4 has some decent upgrades from its predecessor, the device features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor based on the latest 14nm FinFet fabrication which prevents the device to overheat when it comes to high power tasks such as gaming etc and also is more energy efficient which promises more battery life as well.

The Zen UI has been improved a lot and is now more feature packed and smooth, and the stock Asus applications such as the Gallery and File Manager app offers tons of customizations but all these customizations can prove to be a little heavy on battery usage.

The display is a 5.5 inch HD 720p display which can be a little disappointing for some users, but the colors are vivid and sharp. The camera could also have been upgraded, but if you are not a camera junkie, it will prove to be enough for daily needs.
