coralicious, 16 Feb 2017This is not a short review, it's a preview ;)Okay. Thanks for replying, mod! ;D
Obi Wan Kenobi, 16 Feb 2017Where is the front camera sample and a battery test (even for a short review)?This is not a short review, it's a preview ;)
This is more of a comparison between redmi note 3 and redmi note 4. I still don't get why nobody is talking about the Redmi Note 4 being full metal unibody phone in china and Xiaomi using a cheaper process with ugly plastic caps on rear in India.
Where is the front camera sample and a battery test (even for a short review)?

Hmm, so build quality issues still exist. SD625 may have awesome efficiency but it's still below SD 650 especially GPU wise. But most importantly Xiaomi, please change that horrible Chinese UI with rounded icon corners, no app drawers, outdated icons and worst of all displaying ads inside the OS. Tch! Tch!

Is GSMArena also doing torture tests like JerryRigEverything?

Kals84, 16 Feb 2017How come 625 is less powerfull than 650???
Qualcomm MSM8956 Snapdragon 650 is Hexa-core (4x1.... moreSingle core performance: SD650 better.
Multi core collective performance: SD625 better.
Anonymous, 16 Feb 2017Just like to note this common mistake: I have the MTK RN4, and it uses a single-piece aluminum... moreYou are talking about RN4 SD Made in India which has worse build quality, the Made in China Redmi Note 4X SD (and the upcoming international version which will also be made in China) has the same build quality as the RN4 MTK as far as I know.
Zero, 15 Feb 2017I guess that I will wait the Special version which has Band 2, 20 and 28 included.There will be no "special version" other than the international one with the bands I just wrote.
For band 28 or band 2 you have to buy Note 3 Special Version or another brand. Band 20 will be included on the Note 4 international version.
How come 625 is less powerfull than 650???
Qualcomm MSM8956 Snapdragon 650 is Hexa-core (4x1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 & 2x1.8 GHz Cortex-A72)
Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 is Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53
2.0 GHz in Snapdragon 625 is more clock speed as compared to 1.4 GHz/1.8 GHz in Snapdragon 650. Also 650 is Hexa-core wherein 625 is Octa-core.
Is it still 650 is more powerfull than 625??? WOW :-)
YellowEmperor01, 16 Feb 2017A bit funny. Here you say 625 is less superior than 650. But in your chipset guide 2017, 625 s... moreIt nice when someone aware about it, thanks bro.
In real/regular day use there is no different between 650 and 625 (if it has, you will never notice). But if you are hardcore gamer, 650 is better than 625. but for regular user and prefer new and great battery life, 625 is better choice.
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2017this was a great review i just wish it was the standard review instead of a preview yes. a battery score is much waited.
no loudspeaker test, no good camera test, no network and connectivity mentioned, atleast they had an unit of rn4; they should have done it.
