Xiaomi is a privately-owned company that designs, develops, and sells smartphones, an Android-based OS, and other consumer electronics. The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is in a group of affordable price range of phones in India. It has great features such as high end connectivity via VoLTE. A massive battery backup etc. Not only that, the looks of the phone are also very appealing to the eyes, making it a great choice to opt for.

Xiaomi launched the Redmi 4A smartphone in India; priced at INR 5,999 and this puts it in the super affordable segment.

Let’s take a quick recap of the phone’s specifications:


The phone comes with a 5.00-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels at a PPI of 443 pixels per inch. The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is powered by 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor and it comes with 2 GB of RAM. The Redmi 4A runs on MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the interface is same as we have seen in other Redmi devices. The phone packs 16 GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128 GB via a micro SD card. 

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is a dual SIM (GSM only) smartphone that accepts micro SIM and nano SIM cards. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, bluetooth, 3G and 4G with support for band 40 used by some LTE networks in India.


The Xiaomi Redmi 4A has unarguably best camera features if not the best camera. It has a primary camera of 13 megapixels on the back and a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies. Also, panorama, burst mode, facial recognition, monochrome, warm are some of the modes offered by this phone. It can record videos of 1,920 x 1,080 resolution @ 30fps.

Here’s a detailed camera review that we shot for the Redmi 4A.

It is powered by a 3120mAh non-removable battery that allows it to run uninterrupted for a day but not more. The battery backup is above average but not exceptional especially if you are not willing to carry a power bank. This phone’s battery life has decreased a little after the latest MIUI update. (On the date of writing it was MIUI 8.2.5)


Redmi 4A doesn’t sport a metal-unibody design like the Redmi 3S or 3S prime but it has a poly-carbonate body, though with a metal finish. Overall in terms of design, it has similar look to some of the previous phones launched by Xiaomi and with the 5-inch form factor, it’s a very compact device.

Dimensions of the Redmi 4A are 139.9 x 70.4 x 8.5 mm, and the phone weighs just 131.5 g. We got the dark grey colour variant for review, and this one looks very subtle compared to the usual gold-colour variants we’ve reviewed in the past.
