Hello everyone, today I’ll tell you about anotherParcel from China. This time we will talk about a Chinese smartphone from the company Xiami model Redmi Note 4x. The smartphone is currently one of the latest models of the company in 2017.
The parcel from China arrived fairly quickly no more than 3 weeks by Singapore post.
Smartphone packaging, like most packagingXiami products has a minimalist design (something similar to apple) and is made in white. Here we barely distinguish the 4X symbol, which speaks of a smartphone model. Also in the upper right corner there is a sticker that says that in our smartphone 3GB of RAM and 32GB of permanent memory. On the right and left ends of the box there is an inscription in Chinese and English “Note 4x”. At the top and bottom, the Xiami logo is “MI". And only at the bottom of the box is there more information - these are the characteristics and have a smartphone, but everything is in Chinese.
Let's now see what entera complete set, but first I would like to thank the seller for a small gift in the form of an adapter for a European plug. As they say a trifle, but nice. And do not look for it in the stores of your city.
So, removing the packaging cover, the smartphone itself meets us,
but for now put it aside and see what else is there.
And there is the following:
- The instruction is completely in Chinese,
- spare film on glass,
- charging cable;
- Charger for 5V and 2A.
- clip for lot sim cards
That's all the equipment!
With the configuration sorted out now back tothe smartphone itself and talk about its design and basic characteristics. Taking the smartphone in hand, we see a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1920x1080 covered with 2.5d glass and having a pixel density of 401ppi. At the top of the screen is a speaker, a 5MP camera and a set of basic sensors. At the bottom of the screen are touch-sensitive control buttons with a backlight. On the rear panel is a 13MP camera, LED flash and a fingerprint scanner, but also at the bottom is the brand name Xiami "MI". The following elements are located at the ends of the device: On the right side are the volume and power buttons, on the left there is a tray for SIM cards (nano + micro) or a SIM card and memory card, on the upper side there is a microphone for noise reduction, an infrared port and a headphone jack 3 , 5 jack, and at the bottom there is a microphone, a speaker and a micro USB charging connector. The thickness of the smartphone is slightly less than 9mm, which is not bad.

menu and about smartphone
The smartphone firmware is global, which means that there is no need to dance with a tambourine to install the Russian language. It is here by default, like many others.
Now let's talk about performance.
In synthetic tests, the smartphone dials 61698 parrots, multitouch for 10 touches, it finds satellites quickly enough. No more than 30 seconds and at least 3 satellites in touch
As for the games, despite the fact thatthe 625 processor is clearly not for gamers, nevertheless, in games such as tanks and asphalt, the smartphone pulls at maximum speed, only to play comfortably it’s better not to twist the settings to the maximum, especially in tanks. (video see below)
The video quality on the main camera is not bad enough, but I would certainly like better, or at least with stabilization (video example below).
The quality of a dandy is worse, but you can take selfies without any problems and even communicate with Skype, for example. In low light everything looks something like this.
Well, to summarize.
The main advantages:
- High-quality performance of the smartphone,
- good performance,
- good screen.
The main disadvantages:
- micro USB connector. In 2017, I would like to see USB Type-C.
- plastic inserts on the ends
I’m completely satisfied with the purchase of the smartphone,especially considering its cost compared to industry leaders such as apple, samsung and other A brands. I think it is well suited for those who do not like to overpay, but at the same time lose in quality and performance, as well as big fans of Xiami. That's probably all I wanted to tell about the smartphone. If you have your thoughts on a smartphone, welcome to comment. Thanks for attention.
