Default Illumina NextSeq vs. HiSeq4000

NextSeq is good for small RNA libraries?
Any systematic comparison of both systems?

I guess NextSeq is good for RNA Seq, Exome and ChIP seq also..

Both are sequencers by function. Considering their sequence outputs, you can decide which is appropriate for the application you intend to use them for and the number of samples you need to multiplex.

NextSeq uses 2-color chemistry as opposed to HiSeq 4000 (which uses standard Illumina type) so that may be one consideration. HiSeq 4000 requires libraries of more exacting specifications (in terms of insert size etc) that would be one more consideration.
