The much acclaimed Chinese vendor Xiaomi is hosting an event in the country’s capital to introduce a slew of its offerings. While the Mi3 is already confirmed, the presence of Redmi 1S and Redmi Note has also been confirmed following the teaser. If you are interested in grabbing the Redmi Note octa-core smartphone with a reasonable pricing, here we come up with a quick review of the same.
Camera and Internal Storage
The Redmi Note comes with an impressive 13 MP camera at the back with auto focus and LED flash along with HDR shooting mode and FHD 1080p video recording features. Furthermore, there is an amazing 5 MP front-facer that can help in making quality video calls and click gorgeous selfies. This camera is pretty fast and it is competent enough with the other rival handsets.
The internal storage of the smartphone stands at 8 GB which can be expanded by another 32GB with the help of a micro SD card. This is not something out of the ordinary and it does not help the competition too. However, we do not have a complaint from the device in this regard.
Processor and Battery
The processor under the hood of the Redmi Note is a 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor that gets coupled with a capable 2 GB of RAM. This performs pretty well making the smartphone on par with the other devices in the top shelf.
The battery unit energizing the device is a juicy 3,200 mAh unit that is expected to pump in a decent backup to the device making it last for a day without any hassle. Moreover, only the high-end smartphones in the market arrive with such strong batteries making the Redmi Note is a premium device that will be priced reasonably.
Display and Features
The display unit of the Xiaomi Redmi Note is a 5.5 inch one which has a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The big screen display unit will be good for viewing but it is sure to be pixilated as it packs a low pixel count that results in an average pixel density of 267 ppi. But considering the handset’s pricing, we cannot expect better aspects from it.
The Redmi Note is fueled by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS and packs connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and USB OTG.
