Xiaomi now targets Entry-level segment to revolutionise

The Chinese handset maker, Xiaomi is all set now to welcome the new year 2017 with the new generation of its popular budget lineup, Redmi. It has already launched the next generation of its Redmi series in China and they are expected to make their entry in India in the beginning of new year. While Redmi 4 and Redmi 4 Pro make for a a great budget smartphone in the same price range as their predecessor, Xiaomi is introducing a new device called Redmi 4A under INR 5,000 this time around. Here is a brief overview of the device for everyone, who has been looking for a powerful handset well within budget.

Why Should You buy?

13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF: This handset is going to be the most powerful camera smartphone in the price range it has been placed in. The all new Redmi 4A boasts of a powerful 13 Megapixels snapper on the rear panel that comes with a Phase Detection Auto Focus to be able to capture moving objects clearly. So far, none of the handsets under INR 5,000 come with this feature.

Fast Charging: This is another volley by the brand since the feature is unheard of in the entry level segment. Not only does this handset boasts of a decent battery, it also comes with fast charging feature, which would allow users to charge the handset upto 100% from zero in very less time.

Good Display: The display on this handset is one of the best in the entry level with dimension measuring 5 inches corner to corner diagonally. It also comes with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, which not only makes for good viewing experience but also goes easy on the battery.

Snapdragon processor: In a price tag where MediaTek is a norm, this handset dominates with its Snapdragon processor. It is sure to deliver a much better performance then the competition in this segment.

Why Should You Not buy?

No fingerprint sensor: The major grievance any smartphone user might have with this one is that there is no fingerprint scanner on it. However, given the price tag of the handset, we should not really expect it to come with everything on God's green earth.

Hybrid SIM card slot: The handset comes with the standard Hybrid SIM card slot, which means that it can either take dual SIM at a time or a single SIM and microSD card. This is a big deal breaker for majority of Indian users since dual SIM is a major requirement here and so is expandable storage.

Any Alternative?

Swipe Konnect Plus: The only device that matches the spec sheet of Redmi 4A is Swipe Konnect Plus and that is the reason why it makes for the best alternative. This handset comes with a slightly lower price tag and offers similar experience. A must consider when you are not much convinced by Xiaomi.
