Redmi Note 4G Single Sim Vs Redmi Note 4G Dual SIM : Specs Comparison

Greeting MIUIers!

It's been a while since I write a thread in forum. Today I'm going to share with you the specs comparison on the brand new Redmi Note 4G Dual-SIM with the Redmi Note 4G Single SIM. The Dual-SIM Redmi Note 4G is surely bringing convenience for those who using two SIM cards. The best part is, the price of it is still the same as the Single-SIM Redmi Note 4G with 2GB RAM! How can it be so good?!

Before you judge, let's together see this overall review on the specs comparison between these two Xiaomi phablets, shall we?

From the table above, we can clearly see that Single-SIM Redmi Note 4G still has more pros than Dual-SIM Redmi Note 4G. For CPU and GPU, I did not highlight one of them with red color because both have their own pros and cons. It's up to you all to judge which processor chipset is better.

If you decides to switch from Single SIM to Dual SIM, you should be well known that your processor will downgrade a little bit (From 1.6GHz to 1.2GHz). If you did not use your phone for heavy gaming or frequent web browsing, this will not affect you much. But if you do, you should consider this again. For OS, we can update our Single SIM Redmi Note 4G to MIUI 6, so it's not really a problem.

For the memory capacity, I am surprised with the 16GB internal storage provided by Dual-SIM Redmi Note 4G! If you were like me who only use 8GB SD card as external storage, we don't need any external storage anymore as 16GB Internal Storage is more than enough.  But if you are a hardcore user who utilize massive storages for your apps and media files, then you might not like Dual-SIM as it only provides up to 32GB external storage. It totally depends on what kind of user you are.

For the network connectivity, we can clearly see that Dual-SIM Redmi Note 4G has limited band supports on 4G FDD-LTE. But if your telco service provider has the exact band that supported by the phone, it would not be a much problem for you to enjoy your 4G Internet speed.

For battery, screen, camera, video recording and sensors, both Redmi Note 4G have the exact same specs. Hence I do not include them into the comparison tables.
