Hands on: Xiaomi Redmi Note offers great value for S$199

 

If the original S$169 Redmi captured your imagination, S$30 more gets you a souped up Redmi Note with an even bigger screen.

Xiaomi Redmi Note review: Warning note

 

The Redmi Note is Xiaomi's first phablet based on the solid Redmi 1S, which learnt from the Moto X and tried to repeat its success. We cannot think of a better example to follow in terms of sales potential and, with the right touches, the phablet can...

5.5" IPS 720p capacitive touchscreen with 267pi pixel density ; Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with MIUI v.5 ; 1.7GHz octa-core Cortex-A7 CPU; 2 GB of RAM; Mali-450MP4 GPU; MediaTek MT6592 chipset ; 13MP camera with LED flash, 1080p video capture ; 5MP...

No KitKat yet ; Thick and heavy ; Sub-300ppi pixel density ; No hardened glass for screen protection ; No LTE (single-SIM 4G version available)

The Xiaomi Redmi Note is a solid package but we would've expected nothing less from a phablet based on the credible Redmi 1S. Xiaomi's prices are hard to beat and that stands for the phablet as well. The bigger screen and octa-core processor have made...

Xiaomi Redmi Note review: Big, bold, and cheap to boot

 

Xiaomi's Redmi Note isn't a new flagship phone from the Chinese company. Rather it's an affordable dual-SIM device powered by MediaTek's octa-core processor that's under $160, £95, or AU$170.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note has a vibrant display, a sharp camera, dual-SIM capability, and an easy-to-understand interface. Even unlocked it's quite affordable.

The Redmi Note runs the aging Android Jelly Bean OS, and the glossy plastic back feels oily after prolonged use. There's also no 4G LTE.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note delivers a great display and satisfying performance at a low price, but skip it if you crave the most cutting-edge smartphone features.

Review: Xiaomi Redmi Note

 

Xiaomi's first 5.5-inch phone is passable.

Excellent gaming performance; Ideal for watching movies; Long battery life, Aggressive pricing.

Questionable call quality; Sluggish UX; Sound output is low; No SAR Rating.

Xiaomi Redmi Note Review-Big battery, doesn’t heat up

 

Redmi Note offers some great improvements over the Redmi 1S and so is one of the loveliest slates you could ask for in the price bracket. But its 4G variant feels like a ‘better yet' deal.

Affordable high end ; Great cameras ; Scratch-resistant screen ; Good battery backup ; No heating issues

Dual SIM 3G+2G ; Runs on Android 4.3 JB ; Thick and heavy

With a bigger battery and heating issues taken care of, the Note is a great upgrade to Redmi 1S. It is also a very comprehensive package for its price as you would have come to know. The cheap high end has its sack of shortcomings but still turns out...

Xiaomi Redmi Note - A Phablet for the Masses

 

Xiaomi is trying its hand at the lucrative phablet market with the Redmi Note. It not only packs a serious punch with an 8-core processor, it also undercuts the competition with a very attractive price tag. Can Xiaomi deliver great performance in an...

Good battery life ; Memory card slot ; Great value for money ; MIUI offers endless customization options

Sluggish performance at times ; Bulky and all-plastic design ; MIUI can be overwhelming; takes time to fully absorb its capabilities

If you've read our reviews of the Redmi and Mi 3, you would know that it's pretty much the same story with the Redmi Note. The Redmi Note packs hardware typically found in higher-end smartphones into an affordable package. In fact, it boasts a unique...

Cool Device

 

The Xiaomi Redmi Note is one of the cheapest phablets you can get and that will most likely put it on your radar sooner or later. It may be a mere blip if you're the kind of person who consciously avoids the extremes. But bargain hunters will probably...
