Xiaomi has been on a roll in India over the last few months.

Gaming Performance

We tested Dead trigger 2 as the light game and Asphalt 8 as the heavy one on the Redmi 4A. The phone performed really well in terms of graphics and sound management. I didn’t face any lag or frame drops while playing Dead Trigger 2. We expected to see lags and frame drops in the Asphalt 8 as its a heavy game, but yet again there were no major lags. Graphics are well handled by Adreno 308. All over it was a smooth experience.

Battery dropped by 4% after 15 minutes gaming session of Dead Trigger 2. On the other hand Asphalt 8 for 15 minutes dropped the battery by 6% in 15 minutes. Phone didn’t get too hot but got a little warm after both the sessions.

Benchmark Scores

Xiaomi Redmi 4A Benchmarks


The entry level smartphone segment in India is fiercely competitive. While Xiaomi has been a very competitive player for a while now with its Redmi 3S, the Redmi 4A takes the fight to even lower price points. Offering a decent experience with its custom skin, the Redmi 4A seeks to build on the brand value of the Redmi series by targeting more people than ever with an even lower price.
