Xiaomi Redmi Note 4: 2 Reasons Not To Buy

1. Average Camera In Low & Artificial Light

Redmi Note 4 features a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture. The front has a 5-megapixels, which is capable of clicking wide angle shots extended to 85-degrees. But, when it comes to low light conditions, the results are not up to the mark. Without proper lighting, the images are filled with light reflections. The video recording still misses the 4K support, which is present in some of the competitors. In addition to this, the camera also misses Optical Image Stabilization support.

2. Loudspeaker Not Very Loud

The music junkies will also not like the fact that the loudspeaker output quality is not up to the mark. Making another thumb down for the phone.

Apart from this, Redmi Note 4 also lacks USB Type-C port and fast charging. This means the phone will take a significant amount of time to get fully charged.


Overall, the phone is reliable and competent. It depends on the individual, which factor plays a major role in its buying decision. If we consider the factors that make Redmi Note 4 a good buy then surely it will overcome its reasons to not buy it. But, the final decisions rest in the customer’s hand.
