Last year, known in narrow circles of the Chinese company Xiaomi, whose symbol is a rabbit in a hat with earflaps with a red asterisk and red pioneer tie on the neck, introduced a model Redmi Note also known as Hongmi Note.The unit is not very expensive, but many of its technical parameters are interesting enough: for example, within the Enhanced version costs 2 GB of RAM, and an eight-core, a Taiwanese chip MT6592. The only thing that saved the producers, so it is on the screen in spite of the large 5.5-inch matrix, its resolution is only HD.

Design, size, controls
Xiaomi Note apparatus similar to any other similar product: rectangular shape, large size, rear socket glossy black front. Design is close to budget devices from Huawei. For example, Honor 3C, 3C Lite, 3X, and so forth. That is, the appearance of a rather primitive, and the materials is not premium. Actually, this explains its low cost.Dimensions Note – 154x78x9.45 mm, weight – about 200 grams. In his hand is good thanks to the sloping edges.Thin edge black – glossy plastic, All back, as it has been said, glossy white. On the official website says about a few colors, but I think it’s bumpers and not different “color” cover.[ads2]
Shield protects the glass Corning Gorilla Glass third generation. The official website of, like, no such information, but some resources say that all the same “Gorilla”. In practice, it is impossible to verify. Glass durable, and for a couple of weeks Xiaomi nothing strange has happened. Oleophobic coating if there is, it is extremely weak: the display quickly covered with fingerprints, and even after you erase the traces still remain stubborn white plaque. However, the finger on the surface of the glass slides cool, like clockwork. Definitely a plus.
Body compressive little squeaks and crackles. Otherwise, everything is fine.
Top center speaker is voice. Its volume is slightly above average, closer to the tone of the bass range, not too sweet, not always hear the interlocutor and clearly legible.At the bottom end – micro-USB and the main microphone. At the top – the second microphone for noise reduction and audio recording in stereo and 3.5 mm audio jack for headphones or a headset. Left no items.Key-volume rocker and power button – right. They are plastic, painted in gray, thin. Pressing the soft stroke average. In general, convenient to handle.
Rear removable socket. To remove it, you must hook the deepening micro-USB. Top center – two slots for mini-SIM (left – WCDMA, and the right – only 2G), and between them – connector for memory cards microSD. Display This device uses a display diagonal is 5.5 inches. The physical size – 69h121 mm top frame – 13 mm, bottom – 18 mm, left and right – about 5 mm. There is anti-reflective coating.
Display resolution Xiaomi Redmi Note – HD, ie 720h1280 points, density – 267 pixels per inch. Matrix IPS OGS. For 5.5-inch diagonal resolution has enough, although the matrix itself is not bad.The maximum brightness of white color – 345 cd / m2, the minimum brightness white – 12 cd / m2 maximum brightness in black – 0.63 cd / m2, the minimum brightness black – 0.03 cd / m2. Contrast – 546: 1. Average temperature – 6500 K, but at maximum brightness level rises to 7000 K.
Judging by the chart, there is a small flaw in the red and blue colors. Judging from the color chart coverage is slightly higher than sRGB (green and yellow).Maximum viewing angles, at an angle the picture is not distorted, which is very good. In my opinion, if we ignore the above values of the calibrator, the display is quite nice Note: bright colors, no image distortion angles. However, there is also a minus – low brightness matrix. Maximum hard enough on a sunny day.
In Xiaomi Redmi Note there is one of the most popular 8-core chip company MediaTek MT6592: 28 nm process technology, ARM Cortex-A7, clocked at 1.7 – 2 GHz. Despite the impressive number of cores, MT6592 dual core loses Apple A7, quad Cortex A15 or Krait (Snapdragon 800). But the novelty can boast support for video playback Ultra HD and H.265 codecs and VP9.Responsible for the graphics ARM Mali-450 MP4 – 4 cores at 700 MHz. Unfortunately, it does not support OpenGL ES 3.0.
