With launch of Redmi 4A at just ₹5,999, it is pretty evident that none other than Redmi 3S is its arch rival at this price point.
So let us pitch both these smartphones and see who emerges as winner.
Both the smartphone packs a lot of punch and comparing the two we have same MIUI 8 operating system, similar spec’d camera i.e 13MP on back and 5MP on front and similar set of connectivity, RAM and storage.
The only two difference which are to be looked at are processor and battery.
Redmi 3S is powered by Octa Core Snapdragon 430 SoC while Redmi 4A battles with Snapdragon 425 Quad Core SoC, its quiet evident that SD430 is better.
Another factor is massive 4000 mAh battery on Redmi 3s compared to that of Redmi 4A which is just 3130 mAh.
For a price gap of just ₹ 1000 you will have to settle for 25% less battery life and slightly slower smartphone, so if you have the extra bucks don’t think that Redmi 4A is better as its new, as Redmi 3S can still kick its butt even though its almost a year old.
