Why Xiaomi Went With Snapdragon 625 Over 650 In The New Redmi Note 4 ?

Hey Folks,

Many of you tech enthusiast people scratching their heads and thinking why xiaomi went with Snapdragon 625 over 650 in the newly announced Redmi Note 4. The Previous Redmi Note 3 was powered with Snapdragon 650- the phone we loved. Redmi Note 3 was a Hit phone with 3.5 Million shipped in 2016. The Folks at Mi India worked really hard and by the feedback, they went with this processor. Further, we will discuss the Pros and Cons of 625.

The predecessor Redmi Note 3 packed in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC — a processor we ended up absolutely loving. While being built on a 28nm  process, the Snapdragon 650 SoC packed in 4x Cortex-A53 cores for its efficiency needs and 2x Cortex-A72 cores for performance loads. This combination resulted in a phone package that gave absolutely stunning battery life, and an equally admirable (for its price) real-world performance across games and heavy apps.

The Redmi Note 4, on the other hand, seemingly concentrates on improving the battery life from its predecessor. The Redmi Note 4 packs in a 14nm-based Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC with FinFET technology, employing 8x Cortex-A53 clocked at 2GHz for all of its efficiency as well as performance needs. The move to a 14nm based SoC with solely Cortex-A53 cores will theoretically improve upon battery life in a noticeable manner. However, one needs to wonder how well the device will perform under strenuous tasks such as gaming. You know the performance of the device could be nothing to boast about when Hugo Barra does not mention it on stage at all, choosing to focus instead on “battery performance”. The Adreno 506 complements the SoC in the GPU department, as compared to the Adreno 510 on the Redmi Note 3.

The Performance of Redmi Note 4 compared with Redmi Note 3 will not make a huge difference. You will only notice a small degrade in performance when compared side by side and flyed a Rocket with it or rendered a all day video. Combined with Great battery life, Great camera and Premium in-hand feel the Redmi Note 4 is a great upgrade to Redmi Note 3.
