Expandable storage using micro SD card

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A storage is expandable using a micro SD card (128GB supported). This is great if you find the 16GB internal storage space quite limited for your uses. You can take more pictures, record more videos and install more apps and games.

No fingerprint reader

The phone lacks a fingerprint scanner, which is a very handy feature that enhances the device's security and also gives you a convenient way to unlock your phone without entering a passcode, just putting your finger on the scanner and that's it.

High battery capacity (3120mAh)

The Xiaomi Redmi 4A features a good battery capacity in relation to its screen size. I've seen 5.5" phones with 2600mAh, so it's nice to see that Xiaomi embedded a powerful battery in this phone, we can play more games, talk more and do more with our phone.
