The Phone am Surely getting this Christmas- Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (Specs and Price)

I would soon be changing my phone from the Infinix Hot 4 Pro due to the problems I encountered- Infinix Hot 4 Pro Nougat Update problem and Infinix Hot 4 Pro without IR scanner; and I was searching all around till I made some reasonable conclusions concerning my dream phone:

  • I didn’t want a samsung phone, cos the screen replacements for a good samsung phone costs a fortune
  • I didn’t want a Gionee phone, because the screen was too fragile and gionee isn’t light.
  • I didn’t want a Htc phone because of battery issues
  • I didn’t want a tecno phone, cos I do not like the graphics
  • I didn’t want infinix anymore, cos they did not do important things I suggested to make them make it in Nigeria
  • I couldn’t buy a nokia phone, cos I was simply unattracted
  • And i cant use a spedtrum phone (like Itel, blu, etc for personal reasons).

So, I searched everywhere on the Nigerian market but I was seeing the above named phones reappearing and as usual, guess what?


I love being different. So I headed on to Amazon to probably Import my phone (which I would do before Christmas) and I saw the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4!
