Ok, lets get started.
I bought this phone after more than 2 months of waiting. I originally wanted to get a Redmi Note 3 Pro (SD 650 variant), and i searched for it a lot. I called the shop where i bought Note 4 many times, they didn't have it, repeatedly telling me to call them in about a week. I then turned to a site similar to Craigslist, and i found brand new models there, but still couldn't get a Note 3 Pro. After a lot of waiting and calling, i decided i should look at Note 4, and i went and bought it. I had a choice between Redmi Pro 64gb and Note 4 64Gb, but i chose Note 4, since at the time when i bought it, it had an official global rom available, and i was planning on flashing it.
It came with a rom called "MIUI 184.108.40.206.0", and after checking and seeing that it isn't an official one (i expected this, so i wasn't surprised), i flashed an official "MIUI 220.127.116.11" one. As for my findings, this i what i found:
Benchmarks: I ran only Antutu 6.2.6 and Geekbench, nothing else.
On Antutu its score is 86259 on performance mode and around 75 thousand on balanced. But, keep in mind that phone heats up during Antutu and after running it a couple of times, score dropped to around 55 thousand (in performance mode).
In Geekbench 4 its scores were.
Balanced mode: SC: 1102, MC:4414
Performance mode: 1533, MC: 4477
Camera: I really don't use (at the moment, i suspect i'll use it a lot more in the future) it a lot, but rear camera seems decent. The only things i can compare it to are S7 Edge and Xperia M2, and it's a lot better than M2, but a lot worse than S7 Edge... I can't give any feedback on the front facing camera since i still haven't removed the factory foil, and it's obstructing the camera. When i get a glass protector, i'll remove it and post some feedback here (if i remember to).
Battery: For now, battery isn't that stellar. I expected a lot more from a 4000mAh battery, but i guess it's that 10-core CPU that's draining it, especially since MediaTek is known as being battery hungry. I have an external battery, so that shouldn't be a problem, but i'd have liked for it to be better. I'm guessing that Xiaomi will fix that in an update. For now, i come home at around 6 with around 30% battery. I don't have a lot of games (only 2), so i guess that the battery isn't too good? I'd put it better than Xperia M2, but not by that much, maybe 2 hours more. Also, i'll post my feedback (of course if i remember) after using it for a bit more and after a few updates (the main reason why i flashed the official ROM, the updates). I still find MIUI interesting, so i do tinker with it a lot.
Heating: Now, this phone does heat. When running benchmarks or charging, it heats up. During normal use not so much. I currently don't have many games installed on it (2 easy ones), especially ones that will run the CPU to the ground.
Screen: Looks pretty nice. Resolution is good, and the brightness is also good. Till now, i rarely used max brightness. It usually sits around 35%-40%, and i sometimes up it to 55%-60% when i'm outside.
MIUI: MIUI is a mixed bag with me. I love stock android look and an app drawer, so i don't like those aspects of MIUI. Otherwise, MIUI isn't bad. It's fluid, smooth and mostly responsive. It has some hiccups, but mostly when using third party apps. It usually works pretty good. It did once crash on me. I was browsing the web, it just froze, it showed me a pink screen (yes, pink), and the phone restarted itself. I also hope that they fix the agressive RAM management a little bit in an update (but i don't mind it that much)
Fingerprint reader: Now, keep in mind that my hands sweat a lot, but it's a hit or miss for me. On official ROM it works a lot better than on the ROM i had before. I'd put it at around 85% of recognition, which for my hands is good. I registered 4 times the same finger (but diferent parts).
All in all, i'm happy. The build quality is great, and the size is also pretty good (i'm happy i didn't go with Mi Max, like i almost did).
Also, i'm not using it with 2 sims, so i can't answer any questions about them...
If you have any questions, please quote me so i can get a notification.
Also, sorry for my english, it isn't my main language...
Using it for about a week. Really great phone for 190 USD.
no heating problem. Games with high graphics run great, also using a lot of VR, no problem there.
Regular charging speed.
Only one thing, the divice where the sim and the sd card goes(the same the iphone has) has a couple of tiny screws, they are a bit loose.
Besides that I think is great. Xiaomi is coming!
