Xiaomi Redmi Note 2

 

The latest and greatest phone from the company known as "the Apple of the East", the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 continues the company's trend of offering impressive specifications at astonishingly low prices. It's also one of the fastest selling phones of all...

Amazing specs for the price ; MIUI 7 is one of the best Android skins ; 13-megapixel camera takes brilliant shots swiftly ; Case feels a bit cheap

No NFC ; No quick charging

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 review: Wallet-friendly Note 2 manages to pack in the performance with a low-cost chip

 

Xiaomi's decision to use MediaTek's Helio X10 processor for its budget phablet proves to be the right choice.

Xiaomi's Redmi Note 2 may be cheap, but it packs in good performance with a reliable camera and expandable storage.

The phone is pretty much limited to countries in Asia for now, and there's no indication it will head westward anytime soon. Camera color accuracy is a problem indoors and battery life is good, but not great.

The Redmi Note 2 is yet another Xiaomi smartphone that delivers good performance at a low price -- but those outside Asia however will have a hard time getting one.

Xiaomi brings Redmi Note 2 with “flagship performance” to Singapore November 3rd, 2015 | by Alfred Siew Cellphones 1

 

It's yet another option for folks who want many of the features of top-end models without paying top dollar.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 review

 

Xiaomi is one of China's leading tech firms right now thanks to its popular line of smartphones and tablets, and while the company is yet to make any serious inroads into western markets, it has expanded with incredible success into other Asian...

In its native China the Redmi Note 2 retails for around £100, but resellers are shipping it to Europe for approximately £125. That puts the handset firmly in the budget sector, but the specifications are anything but frugal. A Mediatek-made 2.2GHz...

Aside from some niggles with the build quality - the clip-on rear panel is quite creaky under pressure - and the lack of NFC and fast-charging, this is essentially a cutting-edge Android phone at a bargain basement price point - and it's easy to...

While flagship Android devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 might offer more features and functionality, they cost three times as much as Xiaomi's offering and arguably come with a less appealing UI. It's easy to accept the minor things that are missing...

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Review: INSANELY Good, Very Cheap. Excellent ALL ROUND

 

Cheap and powerful Chinese smartphones are something of a mystery for most western buyers, which is ironic when you consider that so many of the best-known tech brands create their products in that part of the world. This is slowly but surely changing...

Amazing screen, powerful hardware, MicroSD card slot, fantastic custom UI

No NFC, creaky case design, no fast charging

Amazing value for money and arguably one of the most accomplished phones to emerge from China in recent times, the Redmi Note 2 is a must for budget buyers

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 ( white)

 

Personally, I don't really like displays larger than 5 inches, as they make it a tad uncomfortable to use with one hand, but the 5.5-inch Redmi Note 2 didn't seem too hard to get used to. Perhaps it's because I've been testing out the Apple Watch with...
