Xiaomi Redmi review

 

Known as the Xiaomi Hongmi ("red rice," in Mandarin) in China, the dual-SIM 3G Redmi is the first handset from the company that is officially available outside of China, Taipei, and Hong Kong, and is set to retail online for both Singapore and Malaysia.

The ridiculously cheap Xiaomi Redmi has a cool UI with plenty of usable features, a good camera, and a crisp 720p display.

The Redmi lacks 4G connectivity and 3D gaming performance was sluggish.

Xiaomi's Redmi offers exceptional value for its low price, and blows all other budget handsets out of the water. If you're looking for a cheap Android smartphone without having to compromise performance, look no further.

Xiaomi Redmi 1S Review

 

The Xiaomi Redmi 1S definitely sets a new benchmark for smartphones in this price range. It has the looks, quality, performance, and features that normally you will find in higher-priced smartphones. It's not perfect and obviously has its limitations,...

Xiaomi Redmi Note Review

 

The Xiaomi Redmi Note is one of those phablets that we don't mind recommending, not just because of the specs but because of the price. At an expected price tag of around Php7,000 and with this kind of build and quality, this is almost a steal.

Xiaomi's Redmi Pro wants to make you a master photographer

 

Xiaomi is saying "yes" to dual cameras. The Chinese phonemaker's Redmi Pro uses two camera lenses on its back to take shots with Bokeh effect, that artful look that leaves some of the image in focus and beautifully blurs the rest. It's a feature seen...

Consumer review (cnet.com)

The Redmi is well built, well featured, reliable and amazing value.

 

The english version of the Xiaomi Redmi, available in Singapore and Malaysia, overcomes all the short comings of a grey market ones imported from mainland China.

Get the english version, it works great out of the box. The MiUI is easy to use and can be tweaked as you like.

The battery is slow to charge. It is easy to place a finger across the rear speaker.

Buggy unstable OS, Slow processor low RAM Reboots often

 

The Xiaomi app store is the largest source of malicious code I know of. All, and I do mean all of the non-Chinese apps are pirated and full of viruses and spyware. Xiaomi blocks Google play. The operating system is extremely unstable and buggy. The...

Could be a good paperweight or used by a security researcher who wants to keep abreast about the latest viruses and spyware.

Xiaomi App store is full of viruses and spyware No Google Play access Slow, sluggish phone Terrible, unstable OS Phone Reboots constantly
