Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime Overview

Published :

The Good

  • Best in Class specs
  • Great Value
  • lite mode

The Bad

  • Still on 4.4.4:miui is quite a Ram hog

The Bottom Line

This is still a great device and arguably the best device with over all performance in this price range.


The Redmi 2 Prime is not really successor to the Redmi 2, rather a 16 GB variant of it. Everything about the phone from top to bottom is identical to the Redmi 2 , with a bump in the internal storage from 8 Gb to 16 Gb and a very well deserved 2 GB RAM over the 1 GB of the Redmi 2.

Design And Build:

There is nothing at all in this phone to differentiate it from the Redmi 2. The phone retains all the design elements of the Redmi 2.

Camera Performance:

The Redmi 2 Prime has a 8 MP rear snapper and a 2 MP front camera. The 8 MP is really good, does pretty decent in low light conditions as well. This is thanks to the sensor which is a f/2.2 with 1.4 µm pixel size. The 2 MP 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 same Snapdragon 410 chip as seen on the Redmi 2 as well as 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. Xiaomi has really fixed the one flaw the Redmi 2 had, and that’s the RAM, the Redmi 2 Prime has 2 GB RAM and that makes the phone run smoothly even with MIUI.

Battery Life:

The phone has a decent 2200 mAh Li-Po removable battery, same as in the Redmi 2. 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.


It may be seen as the 16 GB variant of the Redmi 2, but for the extra 1000 bucks you pay for it for the internal memory and the 2 GB RAM, this phone is pretty much the best in class. It pretty much makes the Redmi 2 obsolete, that soon only the Redmi 2 Prime will be available.

Redmi 2 Is Better Or Unite 2



There is no doubt that Redmi 2 is better than MMX UNITE 2 in almost every aspect. Major reasons for considering Redmi 2 over Unite 2 is 1)Sreen reolution-Redmi 2 has lot better  720p hd(312ppi) display with asahi glass protection over it whch makes it scratch resistant which is lot better than unite 2.2)its processor Snapdragon 410 is expected to perform better than Mediatek MT6582.3)Better Cameras(both rear and front)4)USB OTG SUPPORT (unite 2 supports usb OTG but due to some software glitch it is not getting mounted although this should be fixed via OTA updates,If you dont want to wait for it you have to root your unite 2 to use usb OTG)5)ROOT SUPPORT(xiaomi officially supports rooting your device whereas Micromax dont) Conclusion-YOU should choose Redmi 2 over unite 2 

Redmi2 Mobile


Which is best redmi 2 or moto g2? ANd any news about redmi 2 16gb ram version release date?


As of now there is no information about the Redmi 2 launch data in India. Apart from this, Moto G 2nd Gen  is a really good option in this price range and Android Lollipop is already available for this device.

Smartphone With Higher Memory Low On Budget


Big on Phonebook Memory, ROM, High Speed


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. You can use external memory card with this device to further extend the memory.


What is the Memory capacity in Xiaomi Red? In Phone memory, ROM, etc., Please advise


RAM is 1GB Internal memory cap is 8GB can be extended up to 32GB


Thank you but Xiaomi seems to be a Chinese make and Chinese products are prone to be truant. Please advise.


Nokia Lumia 730 a best smartphone till date at the price point of 15000 INR. As it is Nokia then no worry about their hardware and software problem.Similarly that no any smartphone can stand in terms of camera as Xiaomi Redmi 1s have 8 mp of rear camera but when you compare it with lumia 730 the truth comes out. Now in terms of memory it is loaded with "1 GB Of Ram","8Gb of Internal Memory","128 Gb of Expandable Option","5 Mp of Front facing camera with wide angle and full HD","6.7 Mp of Rear camera with led flash having 1.9 aperature lens and capacity to shoot full hd video at 30fps","Comes with latest Windows 8.1 Denim Update Preloaded","4.7 inch HD display which is AMOLED and having 316 ppi". These of the specs are realy great for such a kind of price point.


@Abhinav specs of redmi are great but what you do with it's hardware and assume if any mis-happening is with redmi 1s theb where you go......to solve ..... Should buy a smartphone with future needs.


There are many service centers of Xiaomi available in India, hence if any problem happens with the device, then you can go ahead and resolve them
