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.

The battery life decreses with the first official Nougat builds. I have Global Dev 7.23.3 and it's no match to Marshmallow rom in the Global Stable. I guess it will take some time to iron out the roms with Nougat to get it on this level. But overall for this money, it's a really solid device. My 4x doesn't seem to have that much of a difference in coloring the plastic part, so it's not an issue.
