Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi 4A

Xiaomi Redmi 4a review
Source: GSM Arena English
So, what can a $100 smartphone do for you? The Xiaomi Redmi 4a is as cheap as they get but, you know it's a thin line between low-cost and plain poor. With an LTE-capable Snapdragon chipset and a pretty decent 5" 720p screen, the Redmi 4a is on the right side of that line. Performance-wise however, it crosses it more than once.

70% Xiaomi Redmi 4A review: One of the best entry-level smartphones, but only if you can get your hands on it
Source: Tech2 English
The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is priced at Rs 5,999. At this price point, you are getting a lot of value for your money. The only challenge, rather, an irritant, with Xiaomi phones is their online-only open sale model where phones get sold out in seconds. It is quite annoying that Xiaomi hasn’t yet made the process of buying a smartphone online any easier. That seems to be a major roadblock and could easily put off many potential buyers. Xiaomi should understand that this isn’t 2013 and that the competition has evolved.

90% Xiaomi Redmi 4A review: Probably the best low end smartphone for now
Source: Neowin English
Xiaomi has got a winner here with the Redmi 4A. There is no room for complaints, and its highly compelling price tag makes it hard to ignore this smartphone in the entry-level price segment. The only thing that may affect someone's decision of getting this device would be MIUI, but that alone doesn't seem like a proper reason to ignore an otherwise amazing smartphone.

There’s no better choice available in the same price range. Specifications offered by the Redmi 4A are unmatchable and the user experience was also good. If you have a much higher budget, go for a different device, however if 6K is your bar than this is the best choice available in the market right now.

At a price of Rs 5,999, the Xiaomi Redmi 4A is an exceptionally competent smartphone. With specifications such as 13MP rear camera, a 3,120mAh battery and VoLTE support, it offers a lot of features. It'll surely give tough competition to peers such as Xolo Era 2X and Coolpad Mega 2.5D, which are priced in the same bracket.

If you are looking for an affordable smartphone, Xiaomi Redmi 4A is definitely one of those entry level Android smartphones to buy. It has good design and build, decent display, a customizable software and decent performance for the price segment and a good camera. Price at Rs 5999, Xiaomi Redmi 4A is definitely worth the money.

75% Xiaomi Redmi 4A review: An entry-level phone never looked so good
Source: India Today English
Boasting of an all-metal body, the Redmi 3S -- at Rs 6,999 -- offers all the bells and whistles that someone on a tight budget would want. You're better off buying the Redmi 3S -- provided you can get a hold of it -- because for Rs 1,000 more you're getting a premium body, a better screen, better hardware and a much bigger battery. Also, the Redmi 3S' rear camera comes with PDAF: it's not a deal-breaker but when you're in the budget segment, every rupee counts and a potentially faster camera would mean a great deal for many. As for the Redmi 4A, well, it's not a bad phone. It just doesn't make sense the way the Redmi 1S did once upon a time.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A Review
Source: Fone Arena English
At a price tag of Rs. 5,999, the Xiaomi Redmi 4A is a good deal. It has all the required sensors, including an infrared sensor for remote control. The camera is decent for the price, and the build quality is good even though it has a polycarbonate body. I personally like the polycarbonate body with a smooth matte finish on the Redmi 4A compared to Redmi 3s with a metal body.

The Redmi 4A has the potential to stir up (in fact, going by the first sales figures, it has already stirred up) what we call the “ultra-budget” segment in the smartphone market. In fact, we think it can even give tough competition to even devices that come with higher price tags. No, there is nothing that really jumps out of the device, as exceptional but then there are no deal breakers either, and at this price that makes the Redmi 4A a very sweet deal. The perfect solution for those wanting a good smartphone but facing budget blues.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A Review: The rise of a new standard
Source: The Mobile Indian English
To sum up, the all-new Redmi 4A has all the ingredients to become another hit at this price point. The smartphone surely raises the bar for the much-need standard at this price segment. The device offers some decent design, good battery life and respectable performance for Rs 5,999. However, if you pay Rs 1000 more than you can get Redmi 3s, which offers metal unibody, better Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and better battery backup.

The new Redmi 4A definitely raises the bar for smartphones at this price level, and we expect it to be very popular. At Rs. 5,999, the Redmi 4A offers a lot of features, especially VoLTE support. Camera performance is decent, and the polycarbonate body, 3120mAh battery, and software are all satisfactory.

The Redmi 4A is powerful but not for gaming user, Redmi 3S is a much better option. There is a decent price difference among these two handsets. But still Redmi 4A is a very good buy, an awesomely awesome handset for non-gamers and is the best 4G VoLTE supported handset loaded with high end feature with an affordable price tag.

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is a decent performer for the entry segment and it makes a good case for itself. However, its camera is disappointing and it has only 16GB of storage. As long as you're fine with these compromises, this is a phone worth buying.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A: Hands on and first impressions
Source: Android Authority English
At ₹5,999 ($92), the Redmi 4A is a great budget smartphone that would sell quite well. It’s not an upgrade to the Redmi 3s which is a better option between the two – although the latter is also ₹1,000 expensive. And that’s why, with its price, it will be an attractive option for many. It’s an affordable package that offers decent smartphone experience without too many compromises.

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is really a super little phone and the best budget smartphone I’ve tested out in months. Xiaomi could definitely cement itself in the lower end market with offerings like these and knock some of the other Chinese manufacturers out of the budget phone market. Colour me impressed.
