Its been 3.4 years still perfectly working, we ll not find compact phones in midrange this one was good one. Replaced 2 time display it was my fault. After 2 years i came to know it can be fast charged. It take 1.3 hour for full charge that can easily last for 1.25 day for normal us.
Looking for compact phones in 5 inch display with modern specs....
Been using this for 3 years, no problem faced till now. I am a heavy user and installed more than 130 apps from the time I bought this phone. It has become somewhat slower now but in no way it is unusable. Yes, battery backup is reduced due to my heavy usage. I cracked its screen once and got it replaced for around INR 2000. I am buying new phone (X2 PRO) and giving it for replacement for around 2600 INR. Feeling very bad that flipkart assumes its price is only around 2600. It has been a nice buddy... made a connection with it in these 3 years. I hope my next phone will be same as this one.
Been 3 year with 4x, its still run smoothly but when playing heavy game its will be frame drop... Overall its still in good condition..
Best in class...
Though, no problem in 2 years... when tried for minor service , cost was too high...
Only drawback is high service charges...
Third year with this phone and still ticks like clockwork. In this era of bezel-less phones, I actually love the bezels and the navigation buttons on the Redmi 4 providing a full-screen experience. There are only two negatives in this phone
1) The battery takes forever to charge. But I'd rather have a slow-charging battery that maintains longevity than complicated quick-charging mechanisms. A full charge from 0 to 100 takes just under 4 hours. And from 20%, it takes just above an hour to get to 70%. However, I never charge it to 100%. Even with 70% charge, the thing lasts a day and a half. I reckon, the slow charging and very infrequent charge cycles is what is keeping the battery going even after three years. I have had to change the screen once, though, because of a yellow patch growing in the corner in year 2.
2) While the camera is pretty decent, it never captures the colours of a sunrise or sunset accurately. It manages well in other scenarios, though.
Waiting for a successor. I know Xiaomi is at the anvil of releasing a Redmi 9, but everything after the 4 has been large, unergonomic and ugly. I wish they'd come out with a modern SD 4xx processor, USB C and a side FPS and retain the same chassis, screen, camera as the Redmi 4. Or even a 5.6 inch 18:9 version if they have to. Hate the over-blown aesthetics of modern phones with glossy glass/plastic bodies, notched screens and an array of pointless multi-lens cameras that don't even sit flush with the back.
best phone i ever had. its nearly about three years now and no problem at all (only while playing game free fire, it looks likes that it is loosing frame). no battery issue. only speaker doesnt work while phone call.
Shiva, 07 Aug 2019Very bad phone hanging problem battery issue I have this phone 2year very disturbed with phoneYou got the wrong one.. I'm satisfied with mine

Very bad phone hanging problem battery issue I have this phone 2year very disturbed with phone
The Xiaomi Redmi 4X is the best phone I ever owned. I used it now for over 2 years and must upgrade now... But nothing compared with this phone!!!
I wished I had brought a 32/64 internal memory instead of a 16g. This was my only problem!!!
I love taking pictures and it compares very good to my friends Sony and iPhone's.
The battery life is excellent and last after more than 2 years longer than a day.
Great work Xiaomi...
S, 03 Oct 2018Completed a year of using this. Still runs 2 days on normal use. One and a half under heavy us... moreYes I agree, nowadays people are making bigger phones with notches and the MIUI looks way better than stock android
Completed a year of using this. Still runs 2 days on normal use. One and a half under heavy use. Gets regular updates, too. Not of the OS, but just security patches and MIUI, which I am happy with. If you don't need to showboat, this is all the phone one would ever need. Its successor, the Redmi 5 has only become larger, heavier and gets a smaller battery. The Redmi 6 doesn't even used an SD processor. All Xiaomi needed to do update this phone is slightly trim the top and bottom bezels, retain this 5-inch 16:9 screen, put in the latest SD 4xx or 6xx processor, put in USB C, perhaps enable it with FHD and call it a Redmi 7. I came to MIUI after 3 years of plain Android (JellyBean to Lollipop). And after one year of MIUI in this, I tried Android Oreo on a Sony flagship. Though I loved the hardware, I found plain Android tiresome after MIUI. I returned the Sony and am happy to be back to the Redmi 4. I wish small screens -- 4.3 to 5-inch (16:9) notchless phones were still made.
Now Quick Charging is available after a system upgrade. Please check it.. Seems RedMi 4X is the best budget phone now..
Miui 9.xx (whatever= is not reliable, I switched versions to get errors removed such as problems with screen rotation or black screen, kind of worked. Question is what is next? I need a phone that works not one where I can constantly update my understanding of current phone technology. Android, apple os, blackberry os, windows 10 worked ok for me, Miui does not.
