After a spell of dull sales in 2015, Xiaomi made a remarkable comeback in 2016 with Redmi Note 3, which broke all possible online smartphone sales records in India. Now, the successor Redmi Note 4 is on its way to set new benchmarks.
Redmi Note 4 sale breached the 1 million mark in just 45 days after it went on sale in late January. That's equivalent to one Redmi Note 4 being sold in every 4 second. Yes, it's an amazing feat, but we are not surprised at all. We had the opportunity to review the Redmi Note 4 and it impressed us in almost all aspects.
Currently, it is the most cost-effective phone in the mid-tier category. Its top-end model (4GB RAM+64GB storage) costs just Rs 12,999. No rival brand comes close to the Xiaomi phone in terms of price-to-specifications ratio. Not just the hardware feature, the user experience is also note worthy.
In our opinion, Redmi Note 4 is the best mid-range phone in the market. Even the soon-to-be-launched Lenovo's Moto G5 Plus will face stiff competition from Note 4.
