A budget device with good build quality which looks premium for its price. The device runs on a Qualcomm processor resulting in decent performance. Just as any other Xiaomi device. This smartphone also gives good battery backup. If you want a device just for cameras then this is not the right choice for you.
The Good
  • Good build quality
  • Decent performance
  • Great battery life.
The Bad
  • Average cameras
  • Nothing new as compared to Redmi 4A
