At Rs 6,999, Xiaomi makes the Redmi 4A more appealing to consumers looking to buy an affordable smartphone. In our review of the Redmi 4A, we said that it is a capable device for its budget price. We liked the performance of the smartphone, thanks to its mid-end specifications. It will be interesting to see if the company succeeds with the all-new Redmi 4A, especially when it is competing in the crowded Android market.
