BlueKnight, 20 Jan 2017Note 3 has Snapdragon 650, 64-bit hexa-core 1.8GHz & Note 4 has Snapdragon 625, octa-core ... moreIt's not about the number of cores and the over all clock speed, it's about the processing power of the cortex A72 from the sd 650 compared to cortex A53 from sd 625 that makes it better in performance but yes, sd 625 is more battery efficient than the sd 650.

It lags on some games with simple 3d graphic. Battery does not last that much is not very well energy optimized cpu.
Mediatec 6735/6737 again pretty crappy soc with low clock.. Snapdragon 410 1.2 Quadcore is better than 1.4 quadcore mediatek...
Kaushal , 20 Jan 2017This phone have led notification light in 3 buttons?? yes it has.
PoulieG, 19 Jan 2017Its better to buy RN4 with x20.rn 4 sd battery will perform good & get custom roms in near future. mtk behind 2yrs from the sd

[deleted post]Its available with 3 varients
1.redmi note 4(sd625)3gb ram 16gb internal storage price 10k
2.redmi note 4(sd625)3gb ram 32gb internal storage price 11k
3.redmi note 4(sd625)4gb ram 64gb internal storage price 13k
EZPlayer, 19 Jan 2017Go watch Redmi Note 4(Helio x20) vs Redmi Note 3. You will be shocked :)y go for helio whenever sd 625 is available in note 4 n this chipset 14 nm & far better than rn 3........lol!
Vampy0909, 20 Jan 2017The combination of sd625 is more efficient than sd650.RN4 will give 25% note power than RN3 be... moreSd 650 has 4core of cortex a53 and 2 core cortex a72, while the sd 625 has octa core cortex a53. MOST important thing is cortex a72 is more powerful than a53. THIS REDMI NOTE 4 SD VARIANT IS A DOWNGARDE VERSION OF REDMI NOTE 3 SD650!!!!
There is no heating problem in this RN4 like others..while gaming temperature is around 35-37°c.and its not a major issue every device heatup
The combination of sd625 is more efficient than sd650.RN4 will give 25% note power than RN3 beacouse of sd625 chipset and for gaming sd625 is very good like moto g4 plus which also have same chipset..
Camera is slightly better than RN3 .display clearty is also better than RN3
Overall a complete segment with some better feature/build quality than RN3..
But not quick charging :(
Overall good I want to purchase this RN4
redmi note 3 sd 650 is more powerful than sd 625......rn4 not worth to buy, better consider buy redmi note 3 snapdragon variant...
IAMROhit, 19 Jan 2017Why this processor note 3 has sd 650 its more powerfull than the sd 625 so basically note for ... moreNote 3 has Snapdragon 650, 64-bit hexa-core 1.8GHz & Note 4 has Snapdragon 625, octa-core 2.0GHz. Hope this clarifies.
Getting ready for its release in India. No clue about price yet. Should sell well if under Rs12k.
S625 should make note 4 battery friendly since its 14nm based. But not sure if performance would be as good as S650 based note 3 even with 8 cores. When parallelism is less, 2 Arm Cortex 72 might perform better than the 2 extra Arm Cortex 53
where xiaomi did cost cutting?
1 isp instead of 2 isp on rn3
sd625 instead of 650
4 months late release . the hype was over in china
got the same frame line
and by this they gave extra 1gb+32gb on 4gb varient
AceShot, 19 Jan 2017Agree. They heat a lot and their gpu or cpu is not well optimized for games and usually you ha... moreWhere do you get this? They always use Imagination GPUs the same ones used by Apple and now Mali the same used by Samsung in Exynos range SOCs. Times where they made low end chipsets are over and not coming back. Helio X10 and X20 are top performers in middle to upper class and their competitors SD616 and SD810 aren't even worth of mentioning. Of course SD820 is a little better but X30 is coming this year so who knows. SD625 is nothing but a copy of Helio X10 (now there is also never P10 and P20) in lower node. Whould they copy a design if they thought it was crap?
I see lot of debate on SD SoC and Mediatek SoC.
Actually both follow same ARM basis,but SD SoC makes a difference in final product.
Snapdragon syncs, organises, tunes up and coordinates it's CPU and GPU with software to deliver an efficient performance.it becomes a System on chip in true sense.its a value addition effort.
On other hand mediatek only bundles the CPU and GPU without any sync or tuning. this reduces the overall efficiency ( though using same ARM basis)
Hence, Snapdragon SoC is better choice when it comes to efficiency and performance.
