this phone is becoming a unicorn everywhere. i wanted to buy a spare in case i broke mine but it's sold out in Malaysia. then i searched online and now only gearbest has it but only in gold/white. I'll buy it anyway.
what i like: smaller screen. used unprotected for 1 year without scratches on screen. 9 hours screen on time over 2 days. I'm using the latest miui 9.2 stable rom by xiaomi.eu team.
dislike: slippery back, a bit fragile. not splash proof.

I m in India, i want to buy it, it is not avaliable here, help me guys in buying it from outside india. Which website it is available?
Redmi 4 Prime by far the best phone you could get below $180 budget
Really nice FHD screen, premium metal body, fast fingerprint scanner, snapdragon 625 that is the most powerful on it's class,,,
and dont forget to mention, 4100mAh really makes my phone last 1,5 day ( even tho i used it a LOT)
maybe the downside is the lack of gorilla glass and hybrid sim card slot, sometimes my phone crashes and restart ( rarely but it happen about 3-4 times in my 7 month of uses)
MiUI is not fast especially with the 9 updates
mdr, 25 Oct 2017The only one big issue is, you can't send & recieve SMS only by jio sim.From where u bought?
Redmi phones are one of the best in Price / Performance / Battery life.
The main pros as to me:
Redmi 4 Prime has a solid aluminum body.
Fast fingerprint sensor.
MIUI is a good platform, now as I own Honor 9, I miss a lot of features, like the flashlight that turns off after the second click of power button.
Mi Band 2 integration.
Very good battery life - almost impossible to drain it in 1 day under normal use, unless you are an Ingress agent ;)
Latest update: MIUI 9.2 Global based on Android 6.. No Android 8 or 7 in near future.. time to switch to other brand
Which will you recommend redmi 4 prime or Lenovo zuk z2??
Can this phone will upgrade to android 7.0 nougat?? If not I will buy 4x.
more powerful than other redmi 4 variant, but less support from xiaomi. No Miui 9 with Nougat 7.x.x

Anonymous, 22 Nov 2017My Redmi 4 prime battery was completely low. So when power was restored I tried to charge but ... moreredmi 4 primes have flaky power boards. mine started having problems after only 7 months of daily use and eventually wouldn't charge. you can buy replacement boards for about $2 on aliexpress amd easily replace it yourself.
