Xiaomi certainly has ambitions beyond the low end of the Indian market, but its bread and butter so far has been the sub-Rs. 10,000 segment. The launch of the outrageously powerful Redmi 1S was perhaps the most disruptive event in the entire Indian mobile market in all of 2014, and even with competitors coming in, there has been no shortage of demand. Hundreds of thousands of units were sold before the model abruptly disappeared from the scene, and it still commands almost full price when sold second-hand.The disappearance of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S (Review | Pictures) left a massive hole in the market, which the company is now trying to fill with its successor, the brand new Xiaomi Redmi 2. It will cost Rs. 1,000 more than the Redmi 1S did when it goes on sale each week for the foreseeable future but has a few features to make up for that. We're keen to see how much of a difference this generation leap actually makes, and whether Xiaomi can keep its momentum against a backdrop of dead serious new competitors.

Xiaomi Redmi 2 Summary

Building on last year’s Remi 1S model, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 raises the bar by adding LTE support, but unfortunately also raises the price. This makes the Redmi 2 a little less exciting than its predecessor was. Xiaomi’s build quality remains consistently good, and the screen on this phone is one of its best features. However, performance leaves a little to be desired. The MIUI 6 Android skin is clean and has some interesting features. We were impressed with the phone’s battery life, but not so pleased with its camera, which has colour temperature issues. Overall, this is an impressive phone but unlike when Xiaomi first came to India, there is effective competition at this price point now.

    UI is fantastic. Call recording (in Android OS flavor) and in-built FM, notification flash lights etc are some of the unique features, which I had seen recently ..
