I let the photo speaking by itself
Inviato dal mio Redmi 4 utilizzando Tapatalk
Battery stats of this phone are amazing, my phone with best battery life yet and I dont think I will have anotherone like this in I while. I just hope Xiaomi lets me unlock my bootloader soon so I can flash Xiaomi.eu ROMS, instead of the chinese dev versions full of crap apps
True 10/10. Phone is incredible in all aspects, except sound recording quality, which is INCREDIBLY terrible.
I didn't have the redmi 3s, but I am a very happy redmi 4 pro buyer.
Consider that the CPU are different genre.... SD 430 vs SD 625, a entry level CPU vs a mi-range CPU
With the EU Rom an Antutu Benchmark on redmi 4 pro gave me a over 60 thousands points result!
The camera is quite good for social network photos, in good light conditions it takes very good photos, with low-light it's worse..
Also, SD625 is low consumption cpu and it never gave me hot temperature
But consider that the roms get better with time
All depends on your network provider and band.I'm thinking of getting the redmi 4 pro but it doesn't say whether it works with 4G. If I go to the network checker, it says it may work with 4G. Does yours work on 4G? Thanks.
ps I'm in the UK
All depends on your network provider and band.
Generally speaking in Europe there is slow but high coverage 4G (800mhz) and faster small coverage 4G (2600).
Check which ones your provider uses and which antennas you have in your home/work areas.
The Redmi 4 Pro does not support 800Mhz (most chinese phones don't) because they have less of these antennas in their country. Redmi 4 Pro supports: 4G band 1(2100), 3(1800), 7(2600), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500).
Even if your network provider most does 4G at 800mhz, you will not be losing out on much. 800Mhz is only a bit faster than 3G (HSDPA), its only with the higher Mhz bands that you see the really blistering speeds..
Of course if they install 800mhz to cover 3G blackspots then you'll need 800mhz to get any connection.This is the only reason I can't order this phone now. Speed could be slower okay but what if 800 band covers many places where there is no 3g antennas? Then there will be no Internet at all right?
Why did redmi 4 pro not think of international market and add 800 antenna? Are they crazy?
Also I purchased Lenovo p2 but don't like home buttons much and on screen buttons. Redmi doesn't have on screen navigation nor physical button right? Can someone confirm? Also could you tell me why you don't buy Lenovo p2 instead of redmi pro 4?
Of course if they install 800mhz to cover 3G blackspots then you'll need 800mhz to get any connection.
800Mhz is not the best technology for 4G. It does not give high speed.
So a country like China will install the latest technology because they are making large investments, compared with the West which has a tiny amount of the investment of other areas, and has older infrastructure.
They have little interest in installing 800Mhz, if coverage is required then 3G is cheaper and easier.
As for the West as a market...it represents such a small percent of the global phone consumers, it is irrelevant. Also consumers in the West has low buying power and favour overpriced brands.
Redmi 4 series has capacitive buttons below the screen. There is the option of using screen buttons if required.
The main reason for buying the Redmi 4 over other models for me was the 5" size. It has to fit in my lady's bag
So far I think the phone is great apart from the screen is curved so not good for tempered glass. Sadly my lady does not understand or use it to its full potential (apart from the battery).
Well, if you are travelling internationally your phone will connect to the strongest signal regardless of operator, unless your operator has a special relationship with one operator and only uses that one in the country you are visiting.
Also unless you pay a fortune or have some amazing contract, high speed international data with very cost prohibitive.
So what you are speaking about is quite a rare situation:
You visit a country where your operator only allows you access to a certain operator, and that operator uses 800Mhz to cover 3G blackspots.
Generally speaking, if you are having poor reception internationally then it is probably because the network is generally poor, rather than because they are using a certain band to cover blackspots. In that case you would use wifi to get data. 20mbit minimum seems quite high, most people don't even get that via their home connection, depending on country, so is unrealistic and unnecessary.
The capacitive buttons work like you want them to work. There is no problem here.
The 2.5D glass is annoying. You can still stick on tempered glass, it will just not stick on the curved edges, leaving a lip. Unless the tempered glass is curved. I have seen this sold for popular brands like Samsung, but not for the Redmi4 yet. I have ordered some film protection, I hope it works better than glass.
I ordered my phone from a reseller and they had an option for postage "express, with no import tax" for 17EUR. I had no issues receiving the phone quickly from Chna (<15 days).
There is no 100% assured way to avoid taxes and I can not guarantee your shipping time. But generally speaking you should be OK (Although I know nothing about Finland)
800Mhz is for 4G LTE.sir its not about trust, could you let me understand how it works more technically? Im asking how frequent there could be operators offer fast 3g and 4g but always on 800 band? is 800 band always 4g or also working for 3g ? Id like to make sure prime 4 pro will always have 3g coverage at least and that means 20 mb internet... right? please if youd like to confuse me more with suggestion of buying 3s international, include also reasoning and what you mean. I cant know what you already know. I m here to learn what I dont know so please be more patient and helpful with sharing details you know which I appreciate.
800Mhz is for 4G LTE.
If you are asking if you will get blackspots....
Then we need to do a research project on where you will be at which time and using which operator.
I can happily start it for you!
I will need to fiind the correct academic and professional people to make up the team, plus some researchers on the ground to back it up with real-life evidence.
Shall we get started next Monday?
We'll be round you place about 3pm. Remember to prepare sandwiches, my team gets hungry.
there is no way of answering what you want to know. At least without loads of data about you and where you are going.
You could do some basic research yourself, Check the network coverage in your area and where you are going and the operators that use the frequencies you need.
The short answer is: "You'll probably be fine."
You don't need blistering speed all of the time on a phone. 800Mhz is only a little faster than HSDPA 3G. And 3G is pretty much everywhere you can get a phone signal. So you have little to lose unless your carrier only does 800Mhz and you are running a server via your phone connection.
My own experience is based on the fact that my carrier doesn't use 800Mhz, and 2600Mhz is being installed quite quickly, so I often find I am on 4G. But it is not a dealbreaker, a strong enough 3G signal generally works fine for me, for phone stuff.
