Xiaomi Redmi 2

Ring Ring …

Picking the phone I heard my mother in law’s voice “Do you have any touch phone with you to spare, I want to change from my Nokia C1-00. You see it’s difficult to switch to this phone after using my Samsung Tablet, I am not able to use Facebook or What’sApp in this phone“.

That was last week, on Friday after much searching I ordered Xiaomi Redmi 2 for Rs.5999 from Flipkart. The reason I went with this device was it’s small size at 4.7″, thin at 9.7mm and it’s light weight at 130grams. It has respectable specs – display of 1280×720 HD resolution at 312 pixels per inch (PPI), Internal storage of 8 GB, 1 GB RAM, 8Megapixel camera and 2200mAH battery. All this at unbeatable price point. For extra storage I ordered Transcend 32 GB MicroSD Card Class 10 for Rs.925. The phone got delivered the next day on Saturday.

Using the phone for a day I found it to be fast, easy to hold, good sound quality, reasonable picture quality and adequate battery. I will recommend the phone for anyone looking for a great value budget phone running Android.
