The Bottom Line

Even with its small flaws at this budget its a top notch device and great value.


The Redmi 2 is the successor to the popular Xiaomi Redmi and Redmi 1S. It occupies a major share of the entry level smartphones along with the Moto E. It was one of the first phones from the company to get a 64-bit architecture. Though the upgrades over the 1S are minimal they do improve the overall performance of the phone, like a newer processor, a bigger battery, 4G support and a much lighter profile.

Design And Build:

On a quick look you really can’t differentiate the phone from the 1S, but it’s more rounded around the corners and the position of the rear LED flash giving it away. The phone is much lighter than its predecessor. The plastic back cover is still removable and swappable with the whole lot of options available, and under it lies the dual sim card slots, the SD card slot and a removable battery.  

Camera Performance:

The Redmi 2 has a 8 MP rear snapper and a 2 MP front camera. Even though the 8 MP doesn’t seem like much, it actually does a much better job than a lot of those 13 MP sensors out there on phones that cost a lot more. This is thanks to the sensor which is a f/2.2 with 1.4 µm pixel size. The front camera does a good job with selfies as well. 

Display Clarity:

The display is the same 4.7 inch 720p IPS LCD panel, so it’s pretty nice to look at, and since the screen is smaller, the pixel density is pretty decent at 312ppi. The absence of onscreen buttons give more room on the screen as well.

Processing Speed:

The processor is the major update here over the Redmi 1S, and it’s the same Snapdragon 410 chip as seen on the Moto G3. Along with the Adreno 306 the phone can handle almost everything you throw at it, the almost is because of the OS, MIUI. MIUI is a nice and tweakable OS, but it comes with a cost; it’s a rather heavy UI and it’s iPhone like home screen might not be to the liking of all. The phone runs on Android Kitkat, but since it’s Miui you really can’t differentiate between Kitkat and Lollipop. The 1 GB RAM is sufficient for daily usage, but under heavy usage it does start to show the flaw of MIUI.

Battery Life:

The phone has a decent 2200 mAh Li-Po removable battery, a slight bump from the 2000 mAh one in the Redmi 1S. There are still fans of removable batteries out there. The phone lasts you a day easily and Redmi really does shine in the standby department.


When released it was a direct competitor to the Moto G, although it’s priced alongside the Moto E, which in itself shows how much of a value for money this phone is. The specs are as good as a phone that’s priced in the next price category and that is what made this phone a great success story. The 8 MP camera is pretty good and phone speakers are rather loud even though they are placed at the back side. 

Smartphone With Good Processor And Battery


Must have good processor and good battery backup. Budget near about 7500


Hi you can go for Xiaomi Redmi 2   its a great phone over all in this price range. or Micromax Yu Yuphoria   which is even better since it runs cm os so its quite smooth and it has 2GB ram.

Good Camra Phone

Smartphone With Good Camera N Battery Android


Budget 5000-8000, samsung or micromax or any other


In your budget you can b Xiaomi Redmi 2  or Micromax Yu Yuphoria  both are good pho Lenovo A6000 Plus  is another great option

A290 Or Redmi 2


Which one should i buy?


Based on my personal experience, Xiaomi Redmi 2  is better

Smart Phone Price 7000


My preference is camera and clear resolution pixel and updates...


Redmi 2 provides regular updates for bugs , having decent camera.But if you want regular android updates go for moto e.


Sir but i want to buy micromax a290 is this best or not..as comparision what is the best accordance with this..mobile..


Redmi 2 supports 4g,Its camera quality is better compare to other..Performance is also good.and its also new launch where a290 is older than it..Again battery backup is good of redmi compare to 290.


One last question is where i can purchase this phone redmi 2 ?


Isuggest you to purchase from flipkart (ws seller) providing 30 day replacement warranty on any issue .and transporting is also fast.


And Is it preferable cash on delivery or online payment?

Titanium Mach Two S 360 Or Xiaomi Redmi 2


Simple use along with net surfing


If you need great camera then yes!! Karbonn Titanium Mach Two S360  will be the best option however, if you need good performance (quick with no lag) then Xiaomi Redmi 2  will be a better option.

Smartphone With 13mp And 2gb Of Ram


I want to buy an extra ordinary smartphone around 10k, like xiaomi, micromax, lenovo, and motorola. i want specially these feature- quad/octa core cpu, 13 mp+5mp camera, 2gb of ram, plz tell me which one i should buy.


Xiaomi Redmi 2  is about to be launched in this price range and moreover Micromax Yu Yureka  is also a really good option in this price range. However both of these device are really hard to get because both of them are available in flash sale of different websites. In case you are not able to buy any of these then you can Asus ZenFone 5  as one of the options in this price range.

Smartphone With More RAM And Processor


Phone should be lightweight. WIth a good camera front and rear both. Supports 3G. Dual SIM. MOre battery backup. Supports External Storage. My Budget is upto Rs 7500/-


Hi Aditya, Xiaomi Redmi 1s is the best option just take a look at its specifications, it provides you with the specification of Moto G at the price of Moto E Xiaomi Redmi 1S Quad Core Processor with 8MP of primary camera and 2 MP of secondary camera. You wont get anything better than this till 12,000 INR I would never recommend any Samsung devices in this price because they are really really useless devices, they will start lagging after few months and you will not be able to make even a single call. It good to buy to expensive Samsung devices but not the cheaper ones.

Which Phone To Buy Approximately Near 10 K.


I like to buy phone Approximate Nearly Rs.10,000/- Can you kindly specify which is the Best in this Price Range, and should have value for amount I paid, I'm not much Gamer but need Rich look and Resolution. I require the Smartphone should be useful for Nearly 2 years. I can wait if the newest models are arriving.


Xiaomi Redmi 1s is the best option just take a look at its specifications, it provides you with the specification of Moto G at the price of Moto E Xiaomi Redmi 1S Quad Core Processor with 8MP of primary camera and 2 MP of secondary camera. You wont get anything better than this till 12,000 INR


I don't like to buy China models. Whereas it may sell user data for China links. Can you conform is it is true?


I would recommend that we should stop stereotyping the Chinese smartphones. They are getting better in terms of quality. Well, I have also heared the rumors of selling out the data but I am not sure whether it is true. You can also consider Moto E Motorola Moto E


What about Karbonn Opium N9 and Titanium s7 and also Titanium s4.


Hello Sachin. karbonn have some heating issues at times and hence will not like to recommend for Karbonn. I totally agree with Abhinav, that Moto E and Xiaomi Redmi 1S is the best option in this budget range


I not impressed with Design of Xiaomi Redmi 1S, and Moto E don't feels worth for the Price. Kindly specify Other products. I can pay around 10,000/- But need worthy Product. I now Presently using Micromax Unite 2, which the display is worst. So planning to buy New.


Then, you may check Asus Zenfone 5. it also have a nice mixture of specs. Asus Zenfone 5 A501CG 8GB There are few device avilable from Karbonn as well, but the device have some heating issue. So in this budget range, I believe this are the three phone that may worth for the value. If you can add 2K more to the budget range then Moto G can be a fine device you may have with snapdragon 400 processor.


Tell me whats about Lava Iris X1


Lava Iris X1 is decent device. If you want to have a device for camera then Lava Iris X1 is perfect but the performance of the device is not too great. You may experience some lag with high gaming and multitasking. Display may also disappoint you when you will compare the device with Asus Zenfone or other in the same budget range, You can check the detail specs here: Lava Iris X1 4GB
