Bought from Taobao two years ago and used until now still good ,just the battery not yet perfect so I changed another phone.
I bought the highest version (4G,64G ram) ,at first u need to diy to install google services so that can use google things normally, then another problem is the wifi still using 11N not ac,then the youtube quality just can use 1080only,more than that will not play properly;
camera just soso ,when I get this travel it almost not taking good pictures at night until I bought a Gimbal to solve the problem.
phone called problem have,especially while using whatsapp recording voice msg when travel with any vechnicals ,almost 90% of ppls feedback thats my phone problem,sound is very lag,I'm not sure that's the hardware problem or just sim vendor not good at all...
one more thing, play some games are no problem at all, u even can play Pubg with low resolution with no lag.
and the battery could be changed easily if it's broken,worth to buy with such a cheap price
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2019Please tell me how well it handles pubgIt runs either on Smooth or Balanced - which means it looks very pixelated, but the frames don't fluctuate. It isn't an ideal phone for this kind of a game.
Easily the best phone I've had since I started using smartphones seven years back. I bought it when it came out due to the phone being a very good deal for the performance, screen size and mainly the fact the manufacturer is very kind when it comes to software modification. If you somehow don't like MIUI like I do, there are plenty of alternatives and the phone isn't difficult to root - it only takes a while due to privacy and security measures.
The camera is...pretty bad, not gonna lie, but what do you expect for a phone at this price? It gets a lot better with the Pixel Camera, although there's still far superior phones for this if you want to take photos often. The performance of the CPU is perfectly serviceable if you're playing something light, it starts to chug when you play something more graphically intensive.
The sound is also okay for the fact it is a rather cheap phone - and with some work and a dedicated program, the microphone is simply nice. There isn't much extra to it, other than it tends to record some background hum and noise rather easily, so if you don't have a quiet environment or room and you're recording something, you're gonna have a bad time.
The screen is also surprisingly decent - Xiaomi didn't really muck around with it. For being an HD screen only, the performance and responsiveness is very respectable.
Overall, if you're looking for a very cheap phone to give to your old dad or something, then yeah this is a good deal, but when you consider Xiaomi releases these yearly? You might want to get them the Redmi 7.
4.5/5 in my opinion.
Using this cellphone for last 2 years, one of the perfect cellphone of my life, battery, processing in daily usage, is upto mark...storage is enough for me.. simply loved it
leslie, 04 Jul 2019how is the battery ? is it drain fast ? ie 5% in 30 mins ?Noup, it's quite good
Boss, 17 May 2019One of the best Phone used...!Agree! For the price the Redmi 4x has a lot to offer!
And miui 10.3 is great for the 4x.
No bugs, no problems! Long run time...
atguli, 18 Jun 2019Install Xiaomi.EU custom ROM.how is the battery ? is it drain fast ? ie 5% in 30 mins ?
Everything is Ok, the only issue with this phone is MIUI just full of trash app & trash ads. I thing this will be the last XIAOMI for me

Unfortunately it's not just Xiaomi, no one makes smal screen phones anymore. I would be curious what a 5'' bezel less smartphone would be like.
I'm waiting to see if Apple will release a new SE, it's my last hope, plus they actually prove updates.
No security updates for more than half a year.
I noticed something was wrong, when users asked Xiaomi to enable the colours in the notification LED for 4x (4a already had colours enabled).
Xiaomi's reaction was to switch production and manufacture all new 4x with just white LEDs. What is wrong with someone or a company that would react in that way?
I know I won't buy new Xiaomi products and will sell the Xiaomi lights I already own.
Redmi 4X phone is not receiving calls sometimes. This happening often and later I received a SMS notif by mentioning that I have missed calls. The other side person is receiving the message as that my phone is not available.
Worst phone that I ever had. Charger dead after 2months. Phone becomes hot if wifi hot spot is on. Light sensor working but amount of light don t affect to screen light. Only after update stoped freezing screen, i couldn t answer on call. No one update could fix the bug, can t see home wifi only after reboot see it and connect to it. Somethime it connect to other wi fi networks in city but not show it (that is wifi connected). Somethime all night on charger, battery only full 30 % i check on other charger same story. Run away from xiami redmi 4x this us my first and last xiaaomi its miles behind my huawei 9 lite.
Value for money is just 10/10. But it's a shame that Xiaomi started making huge phones like everyone else, I wish their still made compact 16:9 5 inch phones, not stupid 19.5:9 phones
