Description

The Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime comes with a 5.5-inch IPS display running a resolution of 720 by 1280. These specs result in a PPI of 267, which is well below that of modern flagships, but acceptable given that we're looking at a budget device. Under the hood, the processing power is drawn from a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset - 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, Adreno 304 GPU - paired with 2GB of RAM. In the storage department, the Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime comes with 16GB of onboard storage, expandable by up to 32GB more via microSD. Other specs include a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP selfie shooter on the front, a 3100mAh battery, 4G support, as well as dual-SIM capabilities. On the software side, the Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime runs MIUI 7, which is a custom Android 4.4 KitKat-based implementation of the OS.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
