Here’s how much the Redmi Note 4 scores on AnTuTu


Redmi Note 4_01

‘Purists’ might disagree, but AnTuTu benchmark scores remain a very important measure of how powerful a phone is, for many consumers.

The Redmi Note 4 was only launched yesterday, but there’s (obviously) a huge interest around the device. The phone comes powered with a MediaTek Helio X20, which is a first for the Redmi series. You can find the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 full specifications here.

So, how much does the Redmi Note 4 score at AnTuTu? We have an answer – somewhere around the 85,000 points mark. Have a look at the screen grab below for a more precise number.

Some Helio X20 phones manage to score a little more than the 85k of the Redmi Note 4, but it’s still in the 10% range. Do you think the Redmi Note 4 update was way too incremental? Let us know in the comments section below. If yes, let us also know what you would rather see in the Redmi Note 4!

    Redmi Pro was first in series to have Helio X20

      It was the first with the Redmi name but it was a considered a different product segment than the Redmi phones. I think that’s more of what Yash was getting at.

    If they improved the camera over the redmi note 3 pro, then this is an upgrade. Otherwise I see this as an underwhelming new model. Nothing against the helio x20, as I think it is an excellent SoC, but the SD 650 is perfectly adequate for my needs, and there is little else to differentiate the note 4 from the note 3 pro. Admittedly, the note 3 pro needed very little improvement, so if the cam on this is better, it may well be my next phone….. Or I’ll pick up a note 3 pro at a bargain price.

      a better camera could really damage the value for money ratio with the redmi note line, seeing how good camera sensors creep up on soc interms of pricing

        With SoC’s as powerful as they are now, I’d gladly take a better camera with a weaker SoC than the x20. I understand everyone’s needs are different, but a SD 625, 650, helio p10 (though I was expecting better performance out of that one), or even a mtk 6752 would all be sufficient for me, if paired with a good cam. Not expecting flagship camera performance, but something in line with the mi4, or. Mi4c would be perfect.

          true.. they did that for the zenfone 3 they put in a flagship grade sensor and weaker soc and people are complaining about the price hard i think the same would happen to the redmi note line

            I like the zenfone 3, but would like to see a much larger battery, and it is way overpriced even for a good camera. Can get an mi5 for that.

            • Assefa Hanson
              August 28, 2016

              i think it could be cheaper but for me personally i wouldnt go mi5 for its poor video stabilization and weaker low light performance, i think what skyrockedted the zenfone 3, was the build materials the glass etc maybe the speakers and the dedicated color sensor seeing how people dont care too much about speaker quality and glass design at entry level maybe they should have just dropped those

              August 28, 2016

              I think you are right on that. If the would have done a good cam, and the same processor, at a cheaper price with average speaker/glass it might have been easier to market

    actually it is almost the same upgrade as Galaxy Note 7 over Note 5
    Same displays, different SoC, improved design… except some totally unuseful features like iris scanner and ip68

    • bojan radovanovic
      August 27, 2016

      Well, unuseful for you, but many do like and need f.e. IP68…
      But i do agree with your point, it’s very small upgrade over it’s predecessor, just like other OEM’s devices over last years products.
      I would add it is unnecessary to make this one, as Redmi 3Note is just fine… but hey, it’s not Xiaomi’s fault that this year’s SoCs are not that big upgrade over last year’s… And this is not a flagship device, it’s entry level…so it’s logical it doesn’t come with SD820, but i hope there will be SD65x version.

      While I do agree that the exact score is useless you do get and idea of what type of phone/SOC this is.
      Given that high end phones are at about 120K I’d call this a mid-range phone with low end ones at around 40K.

    No. It should ve had about 120000 in AnTuTu. Otherwise dont see any sence. Same camera? Ip68 is good but
    .. I’d better have better speaker

    Who cares, it has a Mediatek SoC. That means NO updates or very slow and buggy ones.

    Wait for the Snapdragon version. At least you are guaranteed updates that way.

    Unless you buy a new phone every 6 months and throw the old one away, Mediatek chip phones make no sense, until Mediatek actually starts properly supporting their on chips!

    • Marius Cirsta
      August 27, 2016

      You are not guaranteed anything unless the manufacturer takes care of it.
      Believe me I’ve seen plenty of phones with high end Snapdragon SOCs and few or none updates whatsoever.

      • Alex

        since its xiaomi it more likely slow or no update for the mediatek version. look at the redmi note 3 mediatek.

    I have Meizu M2 with Mediatek 6735 processor. I would say it is better then the Snapdragon 210 processor. I play soccer throughout without heat, hanging or hazards. Its a nice phone except the loudness of sound, though sound quality is good. I can’t always hear my phone ring on road, in trains or buses. It does not have FM but battery 2500mah, camera and all others are so good. Updates can be managed still but the Processor must be good. My M2 survived three falls without screen rupture while some phones which I saw in others hand suffers from crack as well as smudges which I had not faced.

    get a 64GB mi5 instead. best bang for the bucks. have everything you need, except iOS and S-Pen. It’s worth the extra $$ over those redmis.

    • Marius Cirsta
      August 27, 2016

      The Mi5 is a good deal but the 3000 mAh battery was a deal breaker for me so I got a 4000 mAh Redmi 3s instead.

      • trapchan
        August 28, 2016

        Redmi 3S is indeed a good choice if you don’t find flagship level camera, nfc, and screen as a must.

          Well it’s actually for my father and he cares for none of this really.
          I would have actually gotten him a Mi5 because it’s a nice phone but he actually uses the phone a lot and battery life is more important to him than raw performance.
          Still at $280 the Mi5 is a really good deal, the only thing with better specs that I saw was the LeEco X820 at $240 which is really a bargain for a Snapdragon 820 phone.

    so my 1.3 year old Xiaomi Mi Note Pro with a SD810 is still in the same performance range? Hmm, I really need a new 6 incher from xiaomi which provides high end performance, not midrange like the mi max or redmi series.
