Xiaomi Redmi 1S review: Stormtrooper


Xiaomi has been a regular around here lately and one of the last times we heard of them was how they sold a boatload of phones in no time. And it wasn't their finest either. A heavily discounted midranger made a splash at the box office, in India no less.

4.7" IPS 720p capacitive touchscreen with 312pi pixel density; AGC Dragontrail glass ; Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with MIUI v.5 ; 1.6 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU; 1 GB of RAM; Adreno 305 GPU; Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 ; 8 MP camera with LED flash, 1080p...

No LTE (single-SIM 4G version available in China) ; No KitKat yet ; Thick and heavy

Xiaomi Redmi 1S review: At Rs 5,999 Xiaomi has another big winner on its hands - Tech2


Once again, Xiaomi has managed to make much of the competition irrelevant with its cunning pricing strategy.

There’s little doubt that Xiaomi another winner on its hands, but it needs a lot more polish on the performance side of things. In terms of appearance, we don’t have many complaints. We only wish the paint job had been slightly less glossy, but it’s a...

Xiaomi Redmi 1S is the latest smartphone to be launched. The handset can be purchased through Flipkart

• Impressive camera ; • Decent performance ; • MiUI is smooth ; • Good sound quality ; • Brilliant 4.7 Inch Display ; • OTG supported

• Heats quickly at heavy gaming ; • Unattractive design ; • High Charging time ; • Still running on Android 4.3

Xiaomi Redmi 1S is a good smartphone that might fit in your budget. It comes loaded with specs and performance that can be found in higher priced smartphones. Everything looked perfect, but I doubt those who are addicted to stock Android will hardly...

Xiaomi Redmi 1s 4.7-Inch 8GB Dual SIM Free / Unlocked (Black)


Price is good. Excellent build quality. Easy to use. There are loads of features that you'd expect to see on a high end spec mobile

It heats up occasionally. But that used to happen with my S4 mini i9190 and I'm told that this will stop or happen less with KitKat when its released. The home keys don't light up at all. Its a bit slippery to hold. I'd recommend a silicone cover or...
