Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X

  • Hello guys and gals, let's share information, questions and answers here about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X

    I bought one for my mom at Lazada (3GB / 32GB, Snapdragon 625)

    There's also a 4GB / 64GB, Mediatek Helio X20 version - it's faster in benchmarks but with less battery life. Still a solid phone.

    So far, I am super impressed with the phone - gorgeous design, screen, build. Fingerprint scanner is fast and convenient. Super smooth in multitasking, no lags. Battery life is insane. It lasts longer than my mom's previous phone (Nokia 6300), which was a dumb phone! Easily 2-3 days usage with moderate WIFI browsing and lots of phone calls.

    The camera is not good in low light, but decent under good lighting.

    This cost PHP 7600. It is amazing what you can get today for the money.
  • My dilemma today is whether to get a tempered glass screen protector, or just a regular plastic film.

    The 2.5D curved screen results in "halo effect" or "air lift" (nakaangat yung sides ng tg). Apparently, you need to apply the included gel to remove the halo every few weeks.

    Regular plastic film on the other hand is so easy to scratch and not as smooth to touch compared to glass. :/
  • You can buy a full tempered glass. It is colored on edges (black, gold, white) so no airlift will be visible.
  • @nevoj_19, na try mo na?

    Base sa nabasa ko, ang downside daw ng colored bezel TG ay lessened screen sensitivity (di kasi naka dikit yung glass, yung colored edges lang ang may adhesive).

    Saka naiipon ang dumi sa sides kasi nakaangat pa din, di nga lang kita gawa ng color.
  • Redmi Note 4 global user since april (same as redmi note 4x having 3gb and SD 625)
    Ive tried 2 tempered glass already and laging nagka ka crack mga tg sa mga edges maybe due to the curved style or mahinang klase lang (bought in amazon) meron pa ako isang extra na full coverage na me frame pero parang di maganda feedback (me dot matrix)
    Recently updated miui9 ota and as for performance its more than enough for my daily needs, i dont game much in my phone so the speed is ok. Battery is pretty good, naalala ko dinala ko sa japan, it can last whole day with data + gps + wifi sharing
  • @levi, Yes, naka fulltg ang unit ko. No problems naman regarding sensitivity sa touchscreen. Mas gusto ko itong full tg kaysa clear tg. Naka 4 pcs na clear tg ata ako at di ko type. May mga airlift sa sides. Downside lang nitong full tg is may mga micro dot black spots. Visible lang naman kapag titignan mo ng malapitan talaga. Also, medyo olats sa outdoor kapag mababa brightness settings mo. Need mo i max para makita mabuti screen. Next time siguro, try ko yung regular na screen protector made by Nillkin or Imak. Pero so far, satisfied naman ako sa full tg and baka nga di na ako magpalit pa.
  • @ViperXtreme and @nevoj_19,

    Thanks sa mga feedback :) Nag gamble ako sa clear (not full screen) tempered glass. Bought it at Lazada for 168 only, 2 pieces (Carkoci brand). Maganda kasi review.

    So far so good.. Yung sides nya, abot lang sa image part ng screen, as in saktong sakto yung edge sa dulo ng image. So halos wala syang lift sa left and right edges, siguro mga 0.5mm lang as in negligible.

    Ang down side nito, exposed yung edges ng screen (yung part na nag curve down na). So kung walang case, ramdam mo talaga na kapos, pag slide ng fingers. Pero since may TPU case naman na may konting overlap sa front, perfect na yung setup ng RN4X ni mama. :)

    I guess there's more than one solution to the 2.5D curved glass problem. I suppose, pag clear type dapat hindi abot sa curved parts, at pag full screen type naman dapat yung hindi affected ang sensitivity.
  • @ViperXtreme, back to the phone itself... bago ka nag update to MIUI 9, anong MIUI version mo?

    Naka 8.5.8.0 ngayon yung sa mom ko. So far very happy sya. She gets 4 days battery life from it (no data or gps, but occasional wifi browsing/email/video calls, some bluetooth music playback, and also regular text/phone calls). Honestly inggit ako sa kanya haha. Yung Lumia 1020 ko kahit naka stabdby lang eh 3% per hour nababawas sa battery tsk tsk.

    Nag popup na yung MIUI 9 OTA update pero di ko pa ini install.
  • 8.xx pa dati miui nung nabili ko, then incremental upgrades and recently lumabas miui9.
    Yep moderate use talagang aabot ng ilang araw ng walanch charging, pero minsan laspag gamit ko pero 1 day use pa din kahitpapano
  • ^^ thanks. Kamusta naman performance ng 9 vs 8.xx? Sana hindi bumagal at same or better battery life.
  • Hi everyone, ask ko lang if meron kayo alam na service center ng xiaomi phones around manila? Or if okay lang ipa-ayos sa mga repair center sa mga malls? Water damaged yung RN4x ko.

    Thanks in advance.
  • @levi: halos pareho lang i think, di ko masyado pansin since mabilis din naman mag launch mga apps, tweaked kasi settings ko sa memory management (hidden developer settings)

    @Latcizar: wala nang xiaomi sa pilipinas so wala na silang service center, me sabi na babalik daw pero wala pa ako nakikita
  • @ViperXtreme: Thanks sa info. Wala na daw chance ma-repair phone ko sabi nung technician na pinuntahan ko. Hahanap pa ako ng iba, sana meron makapag ayos.
  • working ba 4G or 4G+ sa Smart network?
  • @Latcizar, good luck. Sana makahanap ka ng pwede mag repair. Yung seller sa Lazada na Hellotronics, nagrerepair sila pero sabi sa isang review overpriced daw. As in 6k for board replacement.

    @just_matthew, working very well with Globe prepaid 4G LTE. Edit: Smart pala tanong mo, sorry... Let's wait for someone else to confrim.

    @ViperXtreme thanks again. Basta walang performance degradation from 8 to 9, happy nako. Ang na tweak ko lang eh yung battery saver setting per app. May isang background app ako na ni restrict, kasi nasa 30% yung kinakain nya (forgot the app name). After that gumanda pa lalo yung battery life.

  • not sure sa smart, im getting 4G+ on globe, topped at 32mbps so far (bgc area)
  • Plan ko talaga yung Mi 5s Plus, pero same sila connectivity specs nitong Redmi Note 4X.

    Any Smart users?
  • @Latcizar, na'try mo na kay Botong Ruiz?

    Share lang, Mido user here, current setup ng unit ko:

    UNIT: Mido 3/32gb silver >>>>>>>> i had the gold and black before this, mas trip ko to
    CASE: Cefele slim soft case black>>>> best case for me, low profile sya, sakto sa halo phone wallet ko
    TG: Imak full tg black>>>>>>>>>>> sides lang yung may adhesive, 98% capacitive button placement accuracy, durable
    ROM: AOSP Extended 5.0 Oreo ROM>>>most stable Oreo for me, Goodix fingerprint still not working,
    RECOVERY: RedWolf>>>>>>>>>>>>modded TWRP 3.1.1 better support for oreo roms
  • Ask lang, pano ma reresolve yung issue ng poor recording?
  • @levi

    Thank you. Nasa kakilala ko na ngayon, tina-try repair, 'di ko pa sure kung ilan ang magagastos.

    @Pido

    Yes, na-try ko na rin sakanya, willing siya mag-repair kaso ang layo niya ng location niya from me. 'Pag di pa na-repair, sakanya ko na lang siguro dalhin.

    Anyway guys, may alam kayo na waterproof case para sa unit natin? Takot na ako eh :D
  • Hello guys! So I bought a unit from Lazada before their recent online revolution. 3GB ram with 32GB rom. Im more into watching vids and browsing. Sa games, tinest Lang sya just to be sure Na Hindi nagla-lag. I was fairly satisfied in that respect.

    Disappointing Lang Yun rear camera. Madilim sya even with natural daylight and even umder artificial lighting, malakas noise ng images. That's why I'm stunned with the online reviews that the cam is decent to good enough. From my experience, it was far from decent. Also, may white, round spot Na lumalabas whenever I have to take photos. Meron Lang Pag rear cam ang gamit and the white spot is present even on the photos. Para syang perfectly composed artifact. When I tried other camera apps like cam360, Wala naman.

    Specific sya dun Sa native camera app and some other similar apps. That prompted me to send it back and request for a refund. Hindi ko tuloy sure Kung note 4x talaga Yun but confirmed naman by a benchmarking app.
  • @grashabelle, sa unit na nakuha ko for my mom, wala naman white spot sa photos. I'm sure mapapansin ko yun. So mukang may issue nga yung sayo. Weird lang na hindi lumalabas pag ibang camera app.

    3 different rear camera modules ang pwede makuha sa RN4X: made by Sony, Samsung or Omnivision (from best to worst). Omnivision yung sakin, pero decent naman yung daylight pics nya. Sharp at may konting bokeh pa.

    Low-light pics noisy talaga. Pero pag naka on ang HDR, malaki ang improvement, para sakin acceptable na yung results. Ang trade-off lang, matagal matapos yung HDR shot so dapat hindi malikot ang subject. Weak point talaga ng Redmi line ang camera.

  • ah oo nga pala, me variants ng sensor ang phone, mine is the samsung one, best yung sa sony and kita talaga difference. Also try fiddling with the camera app settings and also try the hacked camera app, sabi nila medyo improved ang algorithm ng camera app sa miui9 but di ko pa talaga na test ng maigi
