Xiaomi Redmi 4A: price and availability

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A can be imported favorably. The top model with 16GB of flash memory and 2 GB of RAM as well as ceramic back costs about 450 Euro plus shipping. The smallest model with 62 GB flash and 2 GB RAM is at 427 euros. The technically comparable LG G5 is offered for 699 euros.
The currently importable models are delivered with a Chinese firmware. This can be changed to English, but not in German. Trading Shenzhen provides the devices with pre-installed Google Apps so you can access your Google Account and the Play Store. But there are problems with which we come back in the software field.
The further disadvantage of the imported Xiaomi Redmi 4A concerns the LTE support. The band 20, which is often used in Germany at 800 MHz, can not be controlled by Redmi 4A. In rural areas or on the motorway, the smartphone often deviates from slow connections 

Xiaomi Redmi 4A: Design and processing

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A is smooth and smooth like the  Galaxy S7. There is no special protection against impacts, water or dust. The outer edge at the front is very sharp and cuts delicately into the hand. Nice are the almost frameless display and the plan installed camera optics.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A: Display

The display of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A has convinced me in the test absolutely. Its resolution is sufficient for everyday tasks and its brightness makes me with Berlin light conditions no difficulties. The colors are rich and powerful and represent photos and videos realistic.
The display is a 5 inch full-HD LCD. Thanks to its renewed LED backlight, the maximum brightness could be increased to 600 cd / m². Together with the adaptive contrast, the brightness is individually controlled for each pixel.
The underlying technology is implemented, among other things, by the new Snapdragon processor and its hexagonal subunit. It regulates the brightness so that white areas are lighter than dark ones. This does not lead to the frequently observed burn-out of bright areas when the display lighting is increased over a wide area.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A: Software

After Easter 2016, a new software will be available for the imported Xiaomi Redmi 4A. After their release, we will have to carry out the test again. Until then, our judgment in this section refers to the impressions with the Chinese ROM, which is later equipped with Google Apps and thus works flawlessly.
If you buy the Xiaomi Redmi 4A at Trading Shenzhen, you get either the variant with Chinese ROM and a preinstalled Play Store or later you will get the variant with the so-called Multi-ROM, which will provide native support for the Google apps. It is worth to wait until April for the order. Because then you will encounter fewer mistakes than we have experienced in the test of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A.
The deficiencies in the China software are noticeable especially for apps running in the background and maintaining a permanent server connection. These include, in particular, instant messengers such as WhatsApp or Threema. These did not want to be set up in our test without much effort.
As soon as a Multi-ROM becomes available, you can upload the new firmware to the Xiaomi Redmi 4A. This is what Peter Schmidt from Trading Shenzhen assures us. For the Xiaomi Redmi 3, he has provided a well-understood Flash guide and the necessary files to replace the Chinese firmware with an international one.
Xiaomi equips the Xiaomi Redmi 4A with the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based Miui 8 surface. The software is provided by 175 million active users and a team of 750 developers. With weekly software updates, Miui is one of the most dynamic user interfaces of today’s smartphones.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A: Camera

The camera of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A is less great than hoped. The test pictures, which Hugo Barra had leaked in advance, were shot in tropical daylight and quite detailed. Under Berlins Cloud Heaven, however, she makes average pictures. Only the image stabilizer ensures strikingly quiet videos and wiggle-free photos – including self-help.
The camera does not have the previously released aperture of f / 1.6 but of rather ordinary f / 2.0. The 13-megapixel camera scores elsewhere. The optical image stabilizer works for the first time on four axes. Two transversal axes are added to two axes of rotation.
These compensate for shifts parallel to the plane of the smartphone housing. These occur when tracking moving objects or photographing moving objects. In practice, the stabilizer proves to be an exceptional all-encompassing feature, which makes for above-average good videos and makes the Xiaomi Redmi 4A one of the best video smartphones you can currently buy.
The brand new Sony IMX298 is used as a sensor. Its new DTI Pixel to Pixel Isolation is designed to allow a sharp distinction between areas of different colors and provide more realistic recordings. The new signal processor from Qualcomm provides fast real-time processing in the background.
This is also demonstrated by the 4-megapixel Selfie-Cam and the App applied to video. You can have the software in real-time.

Xiaomi Redmi 4A: Battery

The battery of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A holds one day. It can be loaded very quickly. In about an hour he has enough charge for a whole day. Charged with the modern Type C connector. Imports are shipped from Trading Shenzhen with an additional Euro adapterDespite the compact housing, Xiaomi could plug a quite large battery. Large here means merely that its maximum charge is 3,000 mAh. This was achieved by increasing the energy density to a remarkable 685 Wh / l.

Smartphone sensors measure physical quantities and transmit them to the application processor. The phone’s accelerometer is a built-in electronic component that measures tilt and movement. The proximity sensor detects when a user holds the phone close to his face during a call and turns off the screen to prevent the keyboard from pressing and the battery consumption of the screen. The Redmi 4A has the capability of Dual SIM, which means you can insert two different SIM cards and use them from a single phone.
