We hear a lot about Xiaomi products here in North America but as they are not commonly found for sale by the major providers we do not tend to see them in action. Madshrimps recently reviewed the 5.5" Redmi Note, one of their lower priced offerings. The screen is 720p, powered by a 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 series CPU and using the Adreno 305 GPU along with 2GB of low power DDR3 and 8 GB of onboard storage. The base OS is a modified version of Android 4.4 and it comes with a wide variety of apps installed, including many now popular fitness apps. If you are curious how a Xiaomi phone priced under $200 without contract performs and just what it comes with, check out the review here.
"The Redmi Note 4G smartphone has impressed us positively because if offers a lot for its value; the incorporated Snapdragon 400 MSM8928 SoC from Qualcomm may not have a very powerful 3D component but it compensates with good CPU performance, quite decent power consumption and thanks to that we did not have the feeling that the smartphone discharges pretty fast right in front of our eyes as we have seen with some MTK6592 units which have reviewed in the past."
