People who know me, know that I’m a big fan of Xiaomi. I prefer their mobiles, not that the other companies have something negative. So when I was asked to find a good but cheap mobile, Xiaomi was my first thought. So I searched around e-shops and ended at Gearbest, where I found at a very good price the International version of the Xiaomi Redmi 4X. And the price was good, because as always I found and a coupon that will give you and got it with 9% OFF! The mobile came to me from China with Bpost, so I didn’t had to pay any customs.
Xiaomi Redmi 4X was announced from the company back on February 2017, a year ago. It came to me inside a very protective case, so it was impossible to be harmed. Opening the case, I came across the new designs of the boxes, that are white and luxurious. Before, Xiaomi was using a plain paper, with no color, so this different was good. On the front side you can see a big 4X, but to be honest, because it was from gold, you could hardly see it!
