Do you like the phone ?Can you tell me about problems with the device? How is the screen on time now, is it overheating?What about the rom thing do I need to flash it to international? What will you choice if you can now P9 lite or redmi note 4. Sorry for my bad English and thanks in advance.

About battery drain:
if you have location history enabled, disable it - it might be enough .... there is a hint that a battery drain is related on the location settings (location on with high accuracy and location history enabled).

Anonymous, 23 Dec 2016Is it Normal for note 4 so hungry power,,,it made me curious and suspicious..Old help..I just ... moreBetter wait for the fix from xiaomi about the camera and video playing incl YouTube lagging issue. It can be a big problems that can freeze your phone for seconds when the camera lagging and when you try to push the back button. Many users here in Indonesia selling again their reno 4 on second hand market because of this issue.
The phone Battery, Possessor and Ram is Very Good compared to Samsung and Apple phone out there and way more cheaper for everyone to buy, I personally recommend to Buy this phone.

I have the 64Gb variant of this phone. Awesome. The battery, screen and build are very nice. If you have had issues with timers that don't show seconds, you have a solution here. High Intensity workout enthusiasts understand what I mean. I recommend this phone. It is also cost effective.
Hi silver, hoping that you know this, I found a memory management through dev options and havent change it yet since i bought it. I just want to know if there are any changes on the RAM managerment if I tick this off? Or have you tried to modify it. Thanks!
was downloading Facebook and my mi note 4 jst hang,trying to switch it off bt its no turning off wat should I do
Harsh, 23 Dec 2016What is your opinion about mi note 3As far as i know, Mi Note 3 isn't out, and won't be out for atleast a year. I'll continue with the assumption that you meant Mi Note 2.
I think that Mi Note 2 is a great device. It looks nice and has killer specs. If you have money, go for it.
Sorry guys, i forgot to add this to my update to my impressions.
Camera: Yesterday i had a problem with it. I tried sending a pic with messenger, it said that camera isn't available and to check other apps that are using it. When i went into the camera app, it said that camera isn't available. After restarting the phone it's all well.
Browser: I had a problem with stock browser where it wouldn't recognize first few letters because i typed them "too fast" after clicking on the field for the site adress. Either way i was planning on switching to Mozilla and i did that. With Mozilla i don't have any problems. I'm guessing that's the problem with their browser, and i think that Xiaomi should look into that.
Handi, 23 Dec 2016Hi Silver Knight, I should say you did a great review about this phone! You're being too modes... moreLike i said, i don't really play many games. I only have 3 installed, most of the apps are for my area of studies
Now, i saw your comment today and at Uni i installed Asphalt 8 (i've since deleted it). I played through one level and it was decent. It felt somewhat slow, but that game is pretty heavy. I didn't notice any freezing. In games that i usually play, there's very little to no lag.
As for lag in apps, it's mostly in messenger, especially since this new update. But, keep in my that messenger runs pretty bad on most phones.
Like i said, the biggest con that you might have with this phone is its ram management. Usually after 5-6 apps it needs to reload them again.
AnonD-623756, 23 Dec 2016Thanks silver, youre the reason we all here for opinion. if you dont mind.. between redmi note... morePurely by the numbers, Note 4 is better. But if i could have, i'd have gone with Note 3 Pro. Not that i'm unhappy with my purchase, i'm extremely happy with it. As you've read in my "review", i wanted to get Note 3 Pro for a long time, but i couldn't find it here, so i went with the pricier Note 4.
The main selling point for Note 3 Pro for me is SD 650. Qualcomm is known for how "stable" their CPU's are. By stable i mean that they have great power/performance ratio. Also, Qualcomm releases base code for their CPU's, so there's plethora of ROMs for phones with their CPU (this was especially important for me because i planned on putting CM on it in around 2 years and gifting/selling it to a family member (most liekely gifting it to my father)).
Taking all that into account, i suggest you get Note 3 Pro. Also, it's cheaper.
Disclaimer: I never used (or saw) Note 3 Pro, so i don't know anything about it, but if Note 4 is anything to go by, it'll have great performance.
