A lot has been written about the SoC of choice on the Redmi Note 4 và how it isn"t as powerful as the Snapdragon 650 on the Redmày chú ý 3. The issue stems from the fact that the Snapdragon 625 does not have the newer Cortex A72 cores, instead offering eight first-ren Cortex A53 cores.

The situation is even worse in low-light conditions, with images coming out lacking detail và full of noise.

Both the Redmày Note 4 & Redngươi cảnh báo 3 run a Marshmallow-based build of MIUI 8, which continues to lớn be highly customizable. While there are niggles on both phones, the feature-rich interface overshadows the few drawbacks.

The Redngươi lưu ý 3 should also piông chồng up the update in the coming months, but as of now there"s no mention as to when it will be available for the device.

Battery life
