REDMI Y1 Lite Review
IMG_20171102_160605.jpg

After Disrupting the smartphone market with its awesome budget devices, dedicated to speed and performance, Xiaomi has now once again released a great budget-friendly smartphone in the Redmi Y series. Now it’s not the 5-inch display anymore, but it’s the 5.5 inch display joining the Redmi series. The device can be afforded by anyone, that-is why XIAOMI is known for its great features at lowest possible prices.

DESIGN

Redmi Y1 Lite has a smooth body with rounded edges. It’s smooth design also makes it comfortable to hold.

IT features a 5.5inch display which is the main attraction and effort of XIAOMI to make big display devices affordable to everyone in low prices.

The back of the device is smooth and simple. That is all that can be said.
The linings look pretty elegant for a  budget phone,Xiaomi sure knows how to impress us with the way they design a smartphone.

It features a 13MP PDAF camera. Takes good enough pictures. The camera performance is same as the previous devices in REDMI series.

Down there we have the micro USB port and it also supports USB OTG.

PROCESSOR

Featuring the snapdragon 425 the device performes awesome according to it’s price. Multitasking was smooth and stable. Basic online games were smooth but high-end games won’t suite the device. But overall the device stood on the expectations.

Battery performance


Battery life was good enough to last for a day with normal usage. The good thing about XIAOMI is the battery that they provide. They target the all round performance rather than making it a camera or performance centered device.

Final Note

The device is great budget smartphone and in such a price range it gives excellent performance. XIAOMI has always surprised us with new features, good battery,high rated cameras and low prices. And it continues the tradition.
