Power Punch: Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Vs Lenovo K6 Power
Xiaomi’s launched the Redmi Note 4 in India, with prices starting from Rs 9,999. The phone will be available via open sale on 23 January, so we take a look at what this latest Make in India phone from the brand has to offer.
The Redmi Note 4 carries a battery of the same size as the Redmi 3S Prime. But at 8.4mm in thickness, this one’s easier to hold than the Redmi Note 3.
Redmi Note 4 is their first mid-range phone to come with 2.5D curved display, and a black colour variant.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Competes with:
- Lenovo K6 Power
- Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
- Asus ZenFone Max
Redmi Note 4 vs Lenovo K6 Power
If you compare the Redmi Note 4 with the Lenovo K6 Power, there’s much to differentiate in terms of features, as well as experience.
Powered by Snapdragon 625, the Redmi Note 4 is more powerful than the Snapdragon 430, which runs on the K6 Power. We felt that the K6 Power is equipped with a decent camera and we’re hopeful that the Redmi Note 4 offers a better snapper than its predecessor.
And finally, the battery quotient is even-stevens on both devices. K6 Power packs a 4000mAh battery, while the Redmi Note 4 gets a 4100mAh unit. If one goes by the battery life of Redmi Note 3, then we expect even better performance from the Redmi Note 4. (Stay tuned for our Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 review to know more).
Which One to Buy?
While we’ve tried out the Lenovo K6 Power, we’re yet to test the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, so it would be hard for us to tell you conclusively which one to get. Even though there will be an open sale for the Redmi Note 4, one can never be sure how easily it can be bought.
Having said that, over the next few weeks, few more brands will be chipping in with their upgraded devices in this price bracket, so it’ll be better to wait and watch for that.
