Reviews
So how does it feel to use Redmi 2? Here are some helpful reviews to let you have a taste of Redmi 2
The Redmi 2 is an extremely cheap smartphone, even cheaper than the Redmi 1S was, which is quite an achievement if you consider that Xiaomi not only improved its specifications, but the phone's design as well. The Redmi 2 is smaller than its predecessor in every way imaginable, it's shorter, narrower and thinner than the Redmi 1S.


@Bughinirari gave us a detailed comparison with Redmi 1/1S. To summarise, Redmi 2 is a great improvement in these areas:

  • Redmi 2 is lighter and the size is perfect for one handed operation
  • Redmi 2 back cover provides better grip and prevents fingerprint stains
  • Larger battery capacity combined with higher efficiency and low power consumption of MIUI, Redmi 2 will have an even more impressive battery life
  • Redmi 2's One Glass Solutions technology for its screen offers a better contrast under the sunlight
  • Front face camera is upgraded to 2MP and improved with better Smart Beautification that produces better selfies
  • Redmi 2 provides 50% more processing speed and power with the new 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon
  • Redmi 2 runs MIUI 6 that provides a flatter and simpler user interface with better optimizations
