When seen from the rear, the phone looks like Redmi 3S. There is Mi branding and speaker grill on the rear, which are similar to Redmi 3S. Redmi 4A does not have a fingerprint sensor and at this price, its absence is not surprising.

The phone has slightly curved edges, although we would have liked the overall shape of the Redmi 3S as in our experience it is more curved and fits better in the hand. The Redmi 4A has only slightly curved edges. However, the rear panel of the phone comes with matte finish and its grip is good.

xiaomi redmi 4a camera performance
Redmi 4A has a 13-megapixel rear camera with a 5-element lens and aperture F/2.2. It has LED flash and also modes like HDR, Panorama, Burst Mode and Face Recognition. Apart from this there are also many real-time filters. The phone has a 5 megapixel front camera with aperture F/2.2. The phone has the option of 1080 pixel and 720 pixel video recording at 30 frames per second.

The main camera of the phone takes good pictures and the colors are excellent in good lighting. Photos taken in daylight come with better detailing. We were able to focus on the object easily, but we noticed that the camera struggled in taking close-up shots. There was a lot of noise in some of the photos we took with the Redmi 4A.

The rear camera of Xiaomi Redmi 4A does not work well in artificial light. And noise is visible in the pictures. Photos taken in low light come with good detail, although they appear scattered. Selfies from the front camera come out sharp and with detailing which can be shared on social platforms. The quality is a bit poor in low light. The phone can record 1080 pixel video and the quality is also good. The camera app is easy to use and we liked accessing modes with a single tap.

xiaomi redmi 4a performance
The overall performance of the Redmi 4A impressed us. There was no problem during multitasking and we could easily switch between multiple apps. We enjoyed streaming videos and watching movies on the Redmi 4A. But we admit that being used to using big phones makes the 5 inch screen seem small.

Playing games on the Redmi 4A was also a good experience and we played games like Asphalt 8 and Dead Effect 2 with ease. Initially the game hung when launching the game because there were too many apps running in the background. During our review, we noticed around 900 MB of memory being free at all times and we feel that more RAM could have been better.


Redmi 4A has 16 GB storage, out of which 10 GB is for user use. And this means that you will have to rely on expandable storage. Many appliances like TV and set-top box can be controlled in home and office with the infrared ammeter provided in Redmi 4A.

The sound coming from the handset’s loudspeaker is good for a small room. And at this price, you cannot expect more sound than this. The unit doesn’t come with earphones, so we tested the audio quality with our earphones, which were excellent. Xiaomi has given many audio options in the Settings app.

This phone has many popular audio formats like HEVC and MPEG4. Apart from these there are also PCM, AAC/EAAC+, MP3, FLAC and WAV.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A supports VoLTE and we did not face any network problems even in areas with weak signals. Call quality was excellent. We did not notice any overheating issues during our review.

The Redmi 4A scored respectably in benchmark tests. The phone has a 3120 mAh battery, which lasted 12 hours and 35 minutes in our video loop test. During normal usage, the Redmi 4A proved to be a powerhouse and lasted a whole day. It is worth noting that this happened without using power saver mode.

We used Power Saver mode when the battery of Redmi 4A was 20 percent. And after this we got up to 8 hours of battery life. Fast charging support is not available in the phone and this is not an issue for those buying smartphones at this price.

our decision
The new Redmi 4A has definitely set new benchmarks in this price segment. And it is expected that this will prove to be a very popular phone. Priced at Rs 5,999, the Redmi 4A comes with useful features like VoLTE. The camera performance is excellent and the polycarbonate body, 3120 mAh battery and software are also satisfactory.

It will be interesting to see how the Redmi 4A smartphone performs compared to the Redmi 3S priced at Rs 6,999. By paying Rs 1,000 more, users can get a metal body, a better Snapdragon 430 processor and more battery power if they buy the Redmi 3S.

It seems that the Redmi 4A smartphone has been designed for first-time smartphone users. And this can be a great option for such users.
