Xiaomi RedmiBook 16 Ryzen 5 4500U laptop review - attractive price warrior from the Far East

Powerful entry. A modern 6-core chip, aluminum housing, and a 512 GB SSD at a bargain price? In our review, we look at the entry-level configuration of the RedmiBook 16, currently only available in China or via import, and show where Xiaomi has cut corners.
Klaus Hinum, 👁 Klaus Hinum, Stefanie Voigt (translated by Marvin Glöckner),

With the RedmiBook 16, Xiaomi offers a large 16-inch version of the affordable RedmiBook series. Visually obviously inspired by the Apple MacBook Pro 16, the Chinese manufacturer rather wants to serve the low-priced entry level. For this purpose, it relies on the brand-new Ryzen 4000 chips with 6 or 8 processor cores or alternatively on the Intel Ice Lake architecture with 4 cores and a dedicated Nvidia MX350 graphics card. In our test we look at the cheapest entry level model with a 6-core Ryzen 5 4500U, 8 GB RAM (soldered), and 512 GB SATA SSD. We bought our test device for 650.45 Euros (~$750) at Gearbest and then paid 118.26 Euros (~$136) at DHL for import duties and taxes (to Austria), a total of 769 Euros (~$887).

Case

The case of the RedmiBook 16 is strongly reminiscent of the older Mi Notebook Pro models from Xiaomi. This is by no means negative and for the price range is a thoroughly successful approach. The stable aluminum case looks high-quality and is sufficiently torsionally stiff. It doesn't come close to its role model, the Apple MacBook Pro 16, but in comparison to plastic cases in this price range, it clearly wins.

The dimensions differ significantly from its predecessor. The 16:9 display has a narrower but wider base area and the case is considerably thicker. In return, Xiaomi can also use larger ports in the RedmiBook.

Connectivity

Xiaomi distributes the connections to the left and right sides of the case. The built-in first USB-C port is also used for power supply and as a DisplayPort. Unfortunately, the power transfer didn't work with two tested monitors (Philips Brilliance 329P9H and LG 27UD88-W), so we couldn't use the DisplayPort and charge the laptop at the same time. Fortunately though, the HDMI port worked perfectly with 4K and 60 Hz. Other USB-C chargers (Apple, Anker and Inateck) worked just as smoothly. Another surprise awaited us with the USB-A port on the right: It only supports the old USB 2.0 standard and therefore works very slowly with storage media. A card reader and a Kensington lock are completely missing.

Communication

As a WLAN card, Xiaomi uses a cheap Realtek 8822CE with support for Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac). In comparison to the other 11 notebooks in our test with the same hardware, the RedmiBook shows average results. Compared to other AC cards, such as the old Intel 8265, the Realtek scores well. Modern and fast Wi-Fi 6 hardware, such as in the Envy x360, is significantly faster (in combination with Wi-Fi 6 routers).

Webcam

Surprisingly, Xiaomi forgoes an integrated webcam in the RedmiBook 16.

Maintenance

The components inside are relatively easy to reach via the base plate: First you have to loosen all Torx-5 screws, one of which is hidden under the rear center stand. After that, the plate only holds on to plastic clips at the edge, but these could be easily loosened on our test device (as always, a plastic pick and spudger is recommended).

Inside you can reach the M.2 SSD and WLAN card for easy upgrades. The battery is only secured by screws and can therefore be replaced. The cooler is also easy to clean, but the RAM memory is directly soldered and therefore cannot be upgraded.

 

Input devices

Keyboard

The built-in chiclet keyboard offers the same layout and design as in the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, so you have to do without a dedicated number pad. Unfortunately, Xiaomi has cut backlighting in the RedmiBook. Up to now, the laptop is available as an import from China with US layout (QWERTY) as the only option. We liked the keyboard relatively well and also achieved a comparable typing speed as with our working keyboard. However, the touch was subjectively a bit too spongy.

Touchpad

The large glass ClickPad is embedded in the middle of the housing and offers very good sliding properties. Unfortunately, no dedicated mouse keys were built in and the hinge, with which the touchpad can be pressed into the lower two-thirds, is a bit wobbly. Therefore, you can't feel a clear pressure point and the touchpad can only be pressed well in the lower half. Two- and three-finger gestures work perfectly, though.

Display

Strong clouding and low light bleed
Strong clouding and low light bleed

Our test sample uses a Chi Mei/Innolux CMN1608 (N161HCA-EA3) panel. On the internet you can only find data for the CMN1604 variant, which is specified with 300 cd/m² maximum brightness, 89° viewing angle, 60 Hz and with WLED backlight. In our brightness measurements, the screen with a matte surface doesn't quite manage the 300 cd/m². We see very good brightness values in the upper left area, but they decrease significantly in our sample towards the bottom. An illumination of only 78% is the result and is not ideal. In the clouding picture, you can see the bright spots in the upper corners well, but they are only so clearly visible in longer exposures (photo). At the lower edge we also have some light bleeding from the LED backlight. Our test sample can even surpass the specifications with a very good 1572:1 contrast ratio.

The color representation in the delivery state is significantly better than the class average. However, most colors and also the grayscales have too much blue. After calibration we achieve very good DeltaE values and thus color fidelity, but the maximum brightness was reduced to only 123 cd/m² during calibration.

Despite the matte surface, the RedmiBook 16 is only suitable for shady environments. The maximum brightness is too low to create a sufficient contrast. 500 candelas or more would be recommended for this. A modern smartphone, such as the iPhone 11 Pro, reaches around 800 cd/m² here.

The response times of the display are, typical for a 60-Hz IPS display, not the fastest. However, the measured values are slightly better than the average in the class. Xiaomi doesn't use PWM for brightness control. Therefore, the panel can also be used in dark environments by sensitive people without restrictions.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
24.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.4 ms rise
↘ 10.1 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 41 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
32.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.7 ms rise
↘ 17.5 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 25 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17507 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel impresses with a stable color display and little loss of brightness, even from extreme viewing angles.

Performance

This entry-level model shows a reasonable configuration with the fast Ryzen 5 4500U six-core chip, integrated Vega 6 graphics card, 8 GB DDR4-2667 RAM in dual-channel operation, and a Samsung MZNLH512HALU SATA 3 SSD.

Processor

The Ryzen 5 4500U is clearly a highlight in the RedmiBook 16. The price-performance ratio of the 6-core processor is remarkable for the cooling system installed. In the test, it can clearly place itself in front of the expensive Ice-Lake Core i7-1065G7; the average Ryzen 5 3500U is already a respectable 27% behind. The maximum turbo of 4 GHz is initially also reached in multi-core benchmarks, but then the clock rate settles down at around 3.8 GHz (Blender).

According to HWiNFO64 the CPU package draws 37.7 watts and then settles at 33-34 watts. Therefore, one is clearly away from the specified 15 watts TDP. The performance drop in our Cinebench R15 loop is within the limits with a maximum of 10%. In comparison to other Ryzen 5 4500U's tested so far, the RedmiBook can hold its own well, and only the IdeaPad 5 is able to sustain its performance a bit better.

System Performance

We measure the general system performance with UL's PCMark products. The RedmiBook can score well here with six fast-clocked cores, dual-channel RAM, and SSD. The significantly more expensive HP Envy x360 with the same CPU can't achieve higher average results despite a faster SSD and higher-clocked RAM. The big role model, the MacBook Pro 16 with Core i9 and strong Radeon Pro 5500M, is only 3% faster on average. Competitors from Intel with an expensive Core i7-1065G7 are on average 12% slower.

Overall, we note an impressive performance even for the entry level model, and it turns out that only a few users will benefit from the faster, optional Ryzen 7 4700U.

DPC Latencies

The DPC latencies showed better than average in the test, but according to LatencyMon they are still not completely in the green area. However, our latency test is very demanding with web surfing via WLAN, 4K YouTube video and maximum CPU load.

Storage solution

Xiaomi has economized on the M.2 SSD from Samsung and has only installed a cheap SATA SSD. This noticeably limits the data rates. In comparison to fast SSDs, like in the MacBook Pro 16 or also in the Huawei MateBook D 15, the benchmark results are very weak.

Shipped with old 19.40.40 GPU driver

The integrated Vega 6 graphics card was already part of the Ryzen 3000 series, but has been significantly redesigned for the new Ryzen 4000 APUs and now clocks higher. This is also noticeable in the performance.
