In our review, we said Redmi 4A is a very capable phone for its budget price. We liked the overall performance of the phone, and the battery life is impressive as well. However, as we noted the Redmi 4A has a close competitor in the form of Redmi 3S, which is priced at Rs 6,999 and sports a metal unibody design along with a bigger 4100 mAh battery.
Further, Xiaomi will launch a new Redmi smartphone this month. The device will likely be a successor to company’s Redmi 3S series.
