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

 

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 Review: Everything That You Want And More

 

When Xiaomi entered India, no one really expected the brand to make a name for itself in just 5 months (for good and worse). After doing pretty well with

Oh yes. That's a no brainer. Redmi 1S is your's if you dearly want it and we don't see why one wouldn't want to own it. Sturdy body, bright display, good cameras and a new name to call for. But if you're sure about the China-aspect about Xiaomi and...

Xiaomi Redmi 1S: A New Smartphone for a Common Man

 

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

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 Review – The Mid-range Marvel

 

Xiaomi is turning the tides in the Indian mobile market with its disruptive pricing and aggressive strategy. The Redmi 1S is not a new phone, but it is about to be introduced in India at a price of Rs 5999, exclusively through flipkart. The Redmi 1S,...

Xiaomi announced the Redmi 1S in India for Rs 6999 and finally it will be available for Rs 5999. For a country with is more concerned with value for money, this is the best buy of the year. It may have a few short comings, but everything is forgiven...

Xiaomi Redmi 1S Review

 

Is the Xiaomi Redmi 1S worth recommending? Yes it is. But if you're buying it expecting the wow factor that the Mi3 had, then you may be disappointed. If you have a budget below Rs. 7,000 then this is definitely the best phone to buy. But if you can...

Only smartphone in this segment with a 720p HD display. ; Dragontrail glass is practically scratchproof. ; 8 MP rear camera performs well above competition.

Heats up quite easily. ; Performance is lower than what was expected.
