IÂ’m writing this review after using MI Redmi 4 (4GB RAM, 64 GB) for a week+ and basically i would not recommend it to buy. I purchased it from MI website and they provide only replacement and not refund.
Â• Problems: Internet speed it less compared to other mobiles. Ex: I was using Samsung Duos & YU Yureka earlier, Videos from youtube was streaming & downloading without any interruptions but in Redmi 4 at same location, same sim for more than 10 days I observed it was not even opening the video page. To cross check I even changed the sim back to Yureka and it was dam fast, videos downloaded tada ta taaÂ… ultra fast and I checked on several occasions not just once. The network signal was full but net speed was 0.0 kbps.
Â• If IÂ’m paying double amount or such a huge amount of 12,999 INR and net speed is less and not working whatÂ’s the point in buying such smart phone? Without fast internet itÂ’s like just a media player for anyone.
Â• Next Camera is worst and not up to what he is giving build up, there is no clarity at all even at 13 mp and superfine image setting in summer brightness that too in outdoor. I had this doubt in my first snap itself and wanted to go an extra mile. I projected the image on HDMI Projector believe it or not, the edges of my face was looking like cartoon or some VGA image.
Â• Phone heated on my first use, it was not loaded with any apps at all and while browsing play store and Youtube.
Â• It even heated during charging in my air-conditioned office the temperature I recorded wes 42 C ( I can even provide screenshot taken by dialing *#*#4636#*#*), it would have even more than it. How on earth I can touch such phone and answer calls? MI customer care says it is normal even if temperature reaches upto 47 C OMG. Do they know what is 47 C?, if we get fever where temperature crosses 37 C we cannot touch our forehead and they are saying 47, god save MI customers.
Â• For me initially charge time was taking very long time but later it got fixed to 2.5 Â– 3 hrs. In the beginning it was upto 6 Â– 8 hrs.
Â• MI courier packing was not that great, and mobile device is not even provided with a thermocol / smooth plastic cover in the box. In transit it will easily have scratches.
Â• Disadvantage is that we donÂ’t even get earphone, MI remote did not work on my Philips TV 32PFL5306/V7.
Â• LED light brightness is very less, you can even compare with basic phone like Nokia 1100.
Â• Screen brightness is also less at full brightness.
Â• You cannot get screen guard easily or which covers completely as it has curved screen.
Â• Product got release more than 2 months still he is fooling customers by having sale weekly once, black color is worst, pls do not go for it if you decided to buy after going through my review and bad experience.
Â• When I dialed up customer care, they said nothing can be done and even if it is defective we will replace not we will not provide refund. If I went through FKart, I would have easily returned and got refund. I jusr became fool but going through their ads in website. ItÂ’s not HASSELFREE its with full hassels.
Â• Battery backup is very good, it comes from 16 Â– 48 hrs easily
Â• Does not heat while using hot spot while most of the mobiles heat up.
Overall, he is giving full buildup but it not up to that what we imagine before buying for the price we are paying. For majority of you internet will work, but check if it is delivering that speed what we need or compare it with you previous device at same location it will be definitely less.
Such a bad phone xiomi is, we bought a phone on 31st Jan and after a month use, it not getting switched on. We have wasted 9k for that stupid phone.
