Xiaomi’s claim: The Redmi Note 4X has amazing battery


Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X battery life

Yesterday, Xiaomi revealed some images of the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X, suggesting that the phone will have an above-average battery life and claiming they had a “crazy idea” behind it. Today, they showed us what they were talking about!

In order to verify Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X’s battery life, they made up a crazy challenge: use Note 4X as navigator with its built-in 4100mAh battery without plugging it into the car charger; with it, they had to fully circumnavigate the Taiwan island. To spicy it up, they also added some competitors: the iPhone 7 Plus (2900mAh) and the OPPO R9s (3010mAh).

The challenge begun at 3:00AM on February 5th from the Taipei 101 Tower, after 14 hours 26 minutes and 902 kilometers, they finally came back at the starting point at 5:26PM.

So, how did it go? Well, as you might have expected, the OPPO R9s died first probably due to the less optimized software, it was then followed by the iPhone 7 Plus, only the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X actually got to the end of the trip with still 18% of battery left.

Albeit the video came from Xiaomi and could have manipulated in some way, we have to admit that the Redmi Note 4X looks really promising, at least on the battery life side of things.

Other than the autonomy-pleasing Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 and a 4100mAh battery combo, the Redmi Note 4X sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display and a 13MP rear camera. RAM/storage configurations go from 2GB/32GB, 3GB/32GB to 4GB/64GB, pretty much like with the past Note series phones. Prices will be respectively 999Yuan ($145) , 1099Yuan ($159) and 1299Yuan ($189).

    Very disappointing because SD625 is more power efficient than SD65x but it is just not enough juice for power user.

      You were expecting better battery life from this battery and SoC combo? I have to say I have been very pleased with my Redmi 4 prime battery life with the same combination. Routinely able to achieve 12 hours Sot on a single charge.

        Puff. 40% bigger screen & only 18% bigger battery with S650 Mi Max 3/32 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3ac856f648852aaf28584057243f1e467d5864dbdb21b801c98316bc441669cb.png

              That’s impressive. The most I’ve ever gotten from my 4 prime is around 14 hours

              Sure if you do nothing on it or using it like a ebook reader. No way for such numbers in regular usage

              Well main problem is that every one of us is different & have different views what regular usage is. Yes the guy with that SOT did like to read books on it but did & everything else.

        My girlfriend has the Redmi S3 Prime, battery life is awesome, I’ve seen 10 hrs screen on time on it with 15% battery life remaining etc. My THL T7 manages 6hrs – 6 & a half tops over a 24 hr off charge period. Where as her S3 prime she regularly gos a day without charging it, and she’s always on that Facebook garbage which is high drain. I’d love the Note 4 if the battery is the same for longevity of charge.

      Sorry about you because even Oukitel K6000 Pro with it’s 6K mah battery can’t serve you with more than 13-14h SOT!
