After the release of the Redmi K40 series, it has attracted great attention from the outside world. It has to be said that the popularity is still quite high, and it fully demonstrates its good charm to us. So, is Redmi K40 worth buying? Today, I will discuss it rationally and talk to you about the specific experience of these three days. I hope it will help you.
In terms of appearance, Redmi K40 did not continue the upgrade design of the previous generation. Instead, it uses a center-drilling method to avoid the body being too heavy. 196g is very comfortable to hold with one hand. The front 6.67-inch 1080P resolution visual effect is not bad. It supports a high refresh rate of 120HZ and a touch sampling rate of 240HZ. With MIUI's mature gesture operation logic, there is no accidental touch during daily use. Of course, because the Redmi K40 is a face-to-face screen, the black borders will look larger compared to Xiaomi Mi 11. This is also a small shortcoming of this E4 material screen.
Speaking of the back, the Redmi K40's slightly curved glass panel has a good feel, and the matrix-style camera arrangement is more pleasing to the eye. The Redmi logo is located in the lower left corner, and the appearance is indeed significantly improved compared to the previous generation. As for the color, I personally feel that black is more durable.
In terms of performance, the Redmi K40 is equipped with the Snapdragon 870 processor. This SOC cooperates with LPDDR5 and UFS3.1 flash memory to form a stronger synergy. The running score of AnTuTu can reach about 620,000. This result is found through testing. There is no pressure to deal with most of the daily applications, and they can basically run smoothly. Even mainstream games such as Honor of Kings and Peace Elite are also appropriate, and the high-quality mode is still smooth. It is worth noting that the Redmi K40 is still very smooth at the beginning when playing Yuanshen. When the backside temperature reaches about 45 degrees, it will start to drop frames, but the actual performance is better than the Xiaomi Mi 11 I used before.
Speaking of battery life, Redmi K40 is equipped with a 4520 mAh battery. This capacity is relatively safe. After actual testing, it is found that one hour of high-definition video consumes 13% of power, and one hour of MP3 playback is 9%. The hourly e-book reading is 6%, which means that if you are a moderate mobile phone user, there is no problem with Redmi K40 for a day. Of course, if you play mobile phones all day long, remember to bring the 33W wired charger with you. It only takes about 50 minutes to fully charge, and the speed is at the mainstream level of the industry.
Let’s talk about taking pictures. Redmi K40 is equipped with a 48-megapixel main camera and a 8-megapixel super wide-angle + 5-megapixel telephoto macro lens. In terms of parameters, it can only be regarded as average, but there are still surprises after the actual experience. of. Through the real shots, it is found that under the condition of sufficient light during the day, the Redmi K40 can accurately restore the color of the object, and the details of the characters are also in place. After the super night scene mode starts at night, the smearing and noise control of the photo is also remarkable. These are mainly due to the strong kernel driver and excellent algorithm tuning. It is worth noting that the front lens of the Redmi K40 is 20 million pixels, and it has a variety of beauty blessings, which is very friendly to those who like to take selfies.
To sum up, I personally think that Redmi is still in place to control the needs of Xiaomi fans. On the basis of inheriting the advantages of the K30 series, Redmi K40 further strengthens the user-valued camera, battery life, and appearance. The price positioning starting at $300 can make people feel its sincerity. So, if your budget is not much, then Redmi K40 may be a good choice.
