DISPLAY

Looking at the tables above, it’s automatically Note 4x’s win in terms of display. A larger screen size and higher screen resolution definitely hit the spot of users who are fond of watching and/or streaming videos.

CPU AND GPU

The scores from the AnTuTu benchmark show that the Note 4X has a better CPU and GPU performance compared with the Y55s. This is also supported by the fact that the Snapdragon 625 has a higher clock speed, number of cores, and a smaller architecture. In terms of gaming potential, the former has a better one given that the Adreno 506 GPU is usually equipped with a mid-range device.

CAMERA

They both have the same camera resolution but that doesn’t mean that they are of equal quality. Take a look at our sample photos from both smartphones here: Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X and Vivo Y55s.

BATTERY

Based on battery capacity alone, the Redmi Note 4X has a larger one compared with the Y55s. We couldn’t compare their battery performance directly as we had problems running the PCMark battery test on the former.

PRICE

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X is priced at Php8,500 while the Vivo Y55s is priced at Php8,490.

Overall, the winner of this comparison is the Redmi Note 4X. If users want to have a better viewing experience, performance, and gaming potential, then this is the right smartphone for them. However, if they want an extra storage juice for their device, due to a dedicated microSD card slot, then the Y55s is the right choice.
