Xiaomi already had a significant impact on the Indian smartphone industry. Again the Chinese smartphone maker launched its next successor model in India as Xiaomi Redmi 2. It is not much differ from its predecessor. Let’s take a look on this flagship model in detail:
as, we mentioned earlier that, Xiaomi Redmi 2 is quite similar its predecessor. The new successor is slightly smaller, thinner and lighter, which is hardly noticeable for anyone. It also featured a rounded corner and pretty back, to easy to hold in your hand.
The phone retains 4.7-inch display. The company improve its display features, so that you get better viewing angles. It display not only the brighter but also reproduces colors better than most display you’d find on smartphones in this category. Overall, it has quite well design than Xiaomi Redmi 1s.
Think of Xiaomi Redmi 2 as the Redmi 1s with a few things freshened up, it has 30% browsing speed and 50% CPU performance than its predecessor with its cortex a53 processor. The embedded GPU is also more advance. The device have 8GB internal storage along with 1GB RAM, which is similar to Xiaomi Redmi 1s. It runs on android KitKat, that doesn’t utilize any improvements.
One of the biggest feature is also added in this android device, now it support LTE on both SIM cards. While, this is not huge sale motivator. Some useful apps are already pre loaded on this phone such as Facebook, Flipkart and WPS Office.
Better Camera, Durable Battery:
Xiaomi improved some camera features in its next successor device. You can take sharp and clear images with its 8MP BSI camera, that will give you a great low-light performance at night. Also, its 2MP front facing camera allow to take a great selfie without photo editing.
Apart from these spec chart, the phone is last longer with a 2200mAh lithium-ion battery, which is more durable as compared to its predecessor. Also, it features with Quick Charge 1.0, which speeds up charging by 20%.
Xiaomi Redmi 1s substitute with its next successor model, but comes little-bit costlye. It is freshened up, but does not really worth in term of value for money. LTE is huge feature, but has extremely limited relevance in India. In that sense, this phone is somewhat over by its previous model.
Those who want to take mobile at this price point, they will prefer to consider the Lenovo A6000 and Moto E, both of which offer the comparable features. Ultimately, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 has the best-looking spec sheet of the trio.
