Redmi Note 4 vs Note 3 vs Redmi Pro size and Specs Comparison

Xiaomi the consumer electronics company just unveiled most-awaited fourth edition of the budget Redmi Note series for bigger screen aficionados, and took us by surprise with the choice of specifications. While the chassis design is still metal, the finishing work is now more polished, looks more premium, and the Note 4 is thinner than its predecessor, while still housing a giant 4000+ mAh battery. Seriously, if Xiaomi place such huge juicers in metal phones that are bordering on the 8mm mark, there is no reason for other makers to still ship flagships with 3000 mAh batteries that barely get you through the day.

Xiaomi Note 4 and Note 3 are actually not all that different. The Note 4 is powered by the deca-core Helio X20 chipset, versus the Snapdragon 650 or Helio X10 of its predecessor – you get more raw speed with the MediaTek processors, but less stability and custom ROM support. While the Redmi Note 3 Pro with Snapdragon also comes with a 16 MP shooter, the Note 4 and “regular” Note 3 with MediaTek come with 13 MP cameras. Both the Note 4 and Note 3 have basic versions with 2 GB RAM, but the Note 4 starts you off with 32 GB storage instead of 16 GB, and that’s about the hardware differences fit to print.

Now, if we are talking about Redmi Pro, it is obviously the upper mid-range representative of the budget Redmi portfolio, as it comes with even thinner and more carefully crafted metal chassis, an elaborate dual camera, USB-C port, and the higher versions ship with Helio X25, 3/4 GB RAM and 64/128 GB storage. Naturally, this horese power superiority translates into a tad higher price, though we are talking about $200-$300 phones here, even when sold abroad, so who’s counting.
