In addition to the Mi Note, Xiaomi also unveiled the Mi Note Pro yesterday. The latter, while looks similar to the former, it packs in more impressive set of specification. In fact, for its price tag of Yuan 3,300 (Rs 32,500 approximately), the phablet could be the best Android tablet in the market right now. To put into perspective, we are comparing it with the Galaxy Note 4, the Samsung-made phablet, which is one of the best phablets in the market today.

The Mi Note Pro comes in only one storage option — 64GB, and is priced at Yuan 3,300 (Rs 32,500 approximately). Do note that this isn’t the official Indian price of the handset, as it is yet to become available in the country. That said, in comparison, the Galaxy Note 4 is priced at Rs 58,300, which is too much, in our opinion. Also Read - Xiaomi 200W fast charging to reduce 20 percent of full battery capacity in 2 years

Size and Weight

Both the tablets are huge with their length moving north of 150mm, and width exceeding 75mm. Though, Xiaomi’s Mi Note Pro is pretty slim at 7mm and arguably better looking and has premium feel to it. The device also weighs just 161 grams. In comparison, the Galaxy Note 4 is at 8.5mm thick and weighs 176 grams. On paper, the Note Pro seems a better choice.

Display

The Mi Note Pro has a 5.7-inch display with 1440 x 2560 screen resolution. The company also touts the dynamic contrast pixel adjustment technology, which automatically improves contrast of darker areas to make the picture appear better. In addition, its display also features 2.5D and 3D technology that curves at edges, giving a wide viewing angle.

The Galaxy Note 4 too has a similar 5.7-inch screen with same Quad HD display of 2560×1440 pixels resolution. As for protection, the Mi Note Pro is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, while the Galaxy Note 4 is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 4, which was announced late last year.

Processor and RAM

The Galaxy Note 4, which was announced on September 3 last year, is powered by 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor with 3GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB of internal storage which you can further expand using a microSD card.

The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, on the other hand, comes with the latest Snapdragon 810 processor with Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A57 chipsets. It comes paired with 4GB of RAM, coupled with 64GB of internal storage which can’t be expanded.

Cameras

If we measure the camera power of the two phones on the metrics of which has more megapixels, the Galaxy Note 4 has an edge over Mi Note Pro. The Xiaomi Note Pro has 13-megapixel rear-camera with OIS support, and 4-megapixel snapper upfront.

The Galaxy Note 4, on the other hand, has a 16-megapixel rear-camera with LED flash and a 3.7-megapixel selfie snapper. It also comes with 120-degree selfie mode, OIS, autofocus, voice shutter commands and gesture commands in its Camera app. We will reserve our judgment till we have tested both the devices.

Operating System

The Mi Note Pro runs on the latest MIUI 6 skin on top of Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The Galaxy Note 4 also runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI skin on top of it. Both the UI have their own pros and cons, and come with their own set of interesting features.

Even if the low-price factor of the Note Pro is not taken into consideration, its premium look and the latest processor and high-end RAM make it a better choice when compared to Galaxy Note 4.
