Hello readers, those who would like to know the reason behind Xiaomi's decision to go for Qualcomm 636 instead of 630; First of all 636 is built using Qualcomm's own Kyro cores which makes the chip cheaper to produce than 630. They limited the power of the Kyro cores to the minimum just to maintain heat levels, the reason behind not supporting 4k. Moreover, the camera reception using 630 is higher than 636. Estimating the sales figures of Redmi note 4, Qualcomm might have negotiated huge quantity discounts with Xiaomi with which Xiaomi can incorporate 636 in their upcoming devices too. Quality is compromised for cost. Actually, the fact is that 630 is more powerful than 636 in all respects. In-spite-of all this, I should agree that this is a budget smartphone and it is justified for the price, probably if the glass is a Gorilla, if the camera is as good as Mi A1 and presuming it would receive an Android Oreo update.
Very good device but too big. If only there is a available compact version.
Qwerty, 23 Feb 2018I have checked already! Stop saying stupid n nonsense words and go search about 630 and 636I shall show you the place to start with. Go to Sony Xperia XA2 ultra spec sheet and start comparing everything between 630 and 636. Find out the differences between Kyro and Cortex cores, their speeds, etc. For your information, some of the facts all always hidden like secret societies. You have to reason it out yourself. Take it or leave it. Don't call anyone stupid, without knowing your own abilities. We can learn more only if we learn to be humble. Good Luck.
