The 4A variant seems legit. Perfect for those who are still used to feature phone but trying to get into smartphone. Yes, there are people like that, such as my sister and my dad :p
Last but not least, it's a perfect device for experiments and low boundary testing of your apps. If your apps run on it, it will run on everything else (mostly, since there are still phones with even lower specs and price).
Sun Sand, 04 Nov 2016Was expecting USB C, Not sure why it's missing!!The connector looks like USB Type C on the photos though
They're also advertising extremely long battery life for the Prime, 9 Days!
AnonD-85136, 04 Nov 2016Please use sony phone then write against sony. Me and my many family members are using Xperia.... moreReally??? Naa such a liar I've been using Sony and Xiaomi for so long...and there no problem at all for my Xiaomi...you know nothing about Xiaomi and u don't have experience it urself...both Sony and Xiaomi have great quality and I'm satisfied with that... but Xiaomi is more cheap... currently I'm using Redmi note prime and Sony Xperia m5
Death, 04 Nov 2016You have to realise with Xiaomi what you gain in hardware, you lose in software. No Nougat, ev... moreI currently use global dev miui 8 marshmallow?
There also at least 3 under development Nougat Custom rom on Xda
eg5656, 04 Nov 2016Those entry level phones are totally useless except the phone calls function atleast not as useless as you do (sarcastic laugh)
Told ya! The Redmi 4A is actually a direct competitor to Meizu M3 and other similar super cheap category smartphones. I use M3 at the moment. Have no complaints about it, but still want to try out a Xiaomi device, so 4A looks perfect replacement for my M3, well at least on paper.
Waste of supply chain and production management to do the Standard and A variation.
Save for finger print scanner, little more to differentiate. Should just produce the standard and prime version to increase margins.

Ace, 04 Nov 2016But.. 720p Adreno 505 it's faster than 1080p Adreno 506... ?!?!the processor is mutch faster tho
Dude, 04 Nov 2016It supports QC 3.0 though. Not a dealbreaker.The chipset support it but that does not mean the company (xiaomi) paid extra to add it.. its unclear.
