Difference between 3G and 4G model
There are 3 differences between the 3G And 4G model -
- Processor - The MTK MT6592 processor in the 3G model is much better to that of the 4G model's Qualcomm Snapdragon 400.
- Network - No need to mention this, but the 3G version supports just 3G and lower and the 4G support 4G and lower
- Price - The 3G version is priced ₹1000 lower than the 4G model.
- SIM - The 3G phone is dual sim while the 4G one is single Sim-ed
Which is a better option? 3G or 4G?
According to my personal opinion, the 3G model is a much better option.
- 4G is not used as much as other countries in India.
- For the person who uses 4G, must be one who needs a phone with good processing power to enjoy the downloads he does at high speeds. But the processing power of the 3G version is better.
- It's ₹1000 cheaper than the 4G Model
The Redmi Note by Xiaomi is a great phone and the 3G version is a better option. But if you want a 4G phone but do not need the extra processing power, then the 4G one is for you. If you think that you won't be using 4G in the future, and want to experience great gaming, then 3G for you. You decide the rest!
