    Hi, I am really considering purchasing Redmi Note 4G. Just can’t make a decision between, Lenovo K3 Note and Redmi 4G. What concerns me are the following queries:
    1) with Redmi Note 4G, would 8GB ram be sufficient?
    2) Can we uninstall the custom app of Redmi Note, that we do not seek to use?
    3) if I install a new app / game / or have more data on my phone, where are these installed and saved?
    On the internal 8GB ram or on my expansion SD Card?
    4) Are both the Phones OTG Compatible?

    I really seek to make a choice between the above 2 phones as I do seek to buy a phone soon.
    Please help me. Further, if there are any other low – lights or high lights that u seek to share about the 2 phones please do let me know.
