Xiaomi Redmi Notes: The first review in China

We present you one of the first reviews in the world of the new Xiaomi Redmi Note, which is not yet officially on the market. The review was made from the site, and refers to the Chinese version of the newest Xiaomi home smartphone.

Xiaomi Redmi Notes

Xiaomi Redmi NotesThe smartphone is the successor to the well-known Hongmi / Redmi series of Chinese Xiaomi giant, and is strikingly in the war at the lowest price, which is pushing all the major Chinese companies.

Compared to the previous model, the new Redmi Note will offer much more performing hardware, with a 5.5-inch HD display, MediaTek octacore processor up to 1.7GHz, up to 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory and 3200mAh battery.

Xiaomi Redmi Note - Design

On the front, the smartphone remembers its predecessor with rounded edges, black body, and three function keys on the chin. The keys retained the characteristic red color, but the "Home" key has assumed the shape of a rounded quadrant. All three buttons are backlit.

Xiaomi Redmi NotesThe back of the tested device is white, covered with a smooth finish. The company's designers have worked to make the product comfortable and aerodynamic, as well as the generous size of the display.

The design of this new smartphone is sure to be cured, but it still remembers its predecessor, both for the lines and materials used for the back cover. The sample used for this review mounts a battery from 3100mAh, which occupies much of the back of the smartphone. In the battery compartment there is also a micro SD card slot, and two SIM card slots (that we remember currently support only Chinese networks). Given the tendency of companies to use the various micro SIMs or nano SIMs, the choice of the company to use two traditional SIM slots may seem odd, but it is certainly not a limiting defect.

Xiaomi Redmi NotesOn the right side of the smartphone there are the three physical keys for unlocking / powering and volume. The buttons are pleasing to the touch, and give a feeling of solidity.

Xiaomi Redmi NotesOverall, the design of the new Redmi Note is pleasing and cautious, although forms already seen on the predecessor could have borne users.

Xiaomi Redmi Note - Display

The Xiaomi Redmi Note display is a 5.5-inch panel, considerably larger than its predecessor's display. Also in terms of quality this new Hongmi represents an improvement, offering a more performing touchscreen and an improved touch sensation.

Xiaomi Redmi NotesThe Xiami Redmi Notes maintains the HD 720p resolution, which, although not the top available on the market, is more than justified by the price of 799 Yuan (93 Euro at the current exchange rate).

The overall performance and colors of this display are satisfactory, and IPS technology allows excellent viewing angles.

The smartphone display is a substantial improvement over the previous model, and is definitely in line with the sale price.

Xiaomi Redmi Notes - Performance

The use of the octacore MediaTek chipset represents a substantial improvement for the Hongmi / Redrice series, and the use of RAM 2GB offers a remarkable increase in performance. Below you will find the Antutu and Vellamo benchmarks.

The performance of the device is therefore remarkable, and even impressive when compared to the sale price. The MediaTek octacore processor brings this smartphone to a category far superior to its predecessor, providing computing and graphics power for even the heaviest applications and video games.

The smartphone battery has a good battery life, thanks to the resolution of the display. Even with intense use of the smartphone, you will not be overwhelmed by the day of use.

Xiaomi Redmi Notes - MIUI ROM

The Xiaomi Redmi Note confirms once again the excellent user experience offered by MIUI ROM.

Xiaomi Redmi NotesThe flowability of the MIUI system is as good as usual, and all operations take place without waiting or lag. Generous display does not change user experience, which does not seem to be optimized for 5.5 inches. This does not mean there is a drop in performance, but the use experience is virtually unchanged compared to other smartphones in the company.

The Xiaomi cloud system is once again a satisfying experience, enabling many single account services.

Xiaomi Redmi NotesWith all the possible customizations, and with the various settings for the user's security, MIUI reconfirms a solid and functional ROM.

Xiaomi Redmi NotesThe Xiomi Redmi Note is therefore a good step forward from the past, offering high performance hardware at a very competitive price. The MIUI is also the usual certainty on the software platform, and is a strong point for almost all competing companies. Below you will find the benefits and defects of the device.


  • Very low price (starting from 93 euro at current exchange, slightly higher for 2GB version of RAM)
  • High performance thanks to the octa-core processor
  • Large display and clearly superior to the previous model
  • Excellent user experience


  • Lack of innovation in design
  • System not optimized for large screen
