2. Unboxing & Teardown
How is Redmi Note actually looks like? A picture of its front view does not show its whole appearance.

3. Comparison & Reviews
After done with looking at the outside (hardware), now its time to look at the inside (software). Redmi Note currently has three versions: 3G standard version, enhanced version and 4G LTE version. Three of them have different specs, so don't get those specs wrongly with the Redmi Note you are going to buy. Normally Enhanced version is the common version for Redmi Note sold in Global.
