I have seen two deals on here recently, one for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (£111 AliExpress) and one for the Alcatel Idol 4 (£99 UK high-street store).
If I'm not mistaken they are both pretty much the same spec but the Redmi Note 4 (700+ temp) is much much higher in temperature than the Idol 4 (200+ temp) - why?
I have listed the pros for each:
Redmi Note 4:
Slightly better processor (both in the SD 6xx series)
Built for the British market (for British use)
Warranty that can be used
No risk of custom charges.
To me the Idol 4 seems a better deal. So why is there a 500c difference in temperature? Am I missing something? Which is a better buy?
