Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (S625) review: Take Note!

27 March 2017
After getting to know Xiaomi's Redmi Note 4 with Helio X20, it's time to meet the Snapdragon 625 edition. It promises better battery efficiency and thermal control thanks to the more advanced manufacturing process. But these improvements may have cost the Note 4 some of its performance punch, and we will duly explore this possibility.

    So I came back to use this phone. (Custom rom aosp android 10)
    And I love the old design, the weight, 16:9 ratio. Maybe the only complain is battery (it is already 3 years old) and bad camera.

                  I have been using this phone for 2.5 years.
                  Excellent performance till now.
                  Only the front glass is brocken for my fault.

                      I am using it almost 2 years. The only problem is the gps kept losing unless i reboot it. Other than that, excellent. Hope there is update to fix this issue.

                        Great phone!

                              For me this is a good midrange phone. You might face minor issues but with the cheap price I think this phone really makes my daily work easier. I've been using it almost 2 years and no major issues encountered. Strongly recommended it.

Now in 2019 there are better options, like Redmi Note 6, but it still has plenty of performance for day-to-day tasks. I've been using it for a year and I'm not even close to swapping it for a new one.

                                      Harddeep, 31 Oct 2018There's something confusing here for me in this review. Ca... moreIt is power efficient because it is fabricated using 14nm FinFET process while the MTK one is manufactured by a much larger 20nm TSMC process. The thermal as well as power efficiency decreases exponentially with increase in process size. 20nm processor generate way more heat and consumes more power than a 14nm FinFET processor.
