Is the Redmi 4 Beats Nokia 3?
No, not really. Looking at the benchmarks of the chipsets, Redmi provides better one bit in fact, they have bloated out the device by placing the MIUI skin on it. We personally hate the MIUI and the way it works. However, stock Android in Nokia 3 will be going to your best experience ever.
Now, at hardware part. Redmi don’t provide full of what they offer. It eats more RAM, comparing to what Nokia offers. You can checkout original RAM by installing benchmark apps such as Antutu.
Our recommendation is to go with, Redmi 4 if you’re not a Nokia fan but if you’re then definitely go with the beast, it’s not bad but of course overpriced.
