XIAOMI REDMI 2: REVIEW, SPECS AND PRICE

Gaming that too on a budget device was never so gratifying for as it is now with the Xiaomi Redmi 2. The best Gaming experience in the price that one can ever get.

The Xiaomi Redmi 2 was launched in January 2015. The Xiaomi Redmi 2 just as it’s predecessor has a great number of features to offer the users. Xiaomi Redmi 2 priced at Rs. 7000 is a phone to be looked for if you are looking for a smartphone in this range.

Display and Design

The phone offers a 4.7 inch multi-touch screen with a resolution of 1280x720p. Xiaomi Redmi 2 has an IPS LCD display which is protected with AGC Dragontrail glass. The display has 3 red-coloured capacitive touch button which glows in dark. The touch is smooth and scratch resistant. The viewing angles which the Xiaomi Redmi 2 provide are just amazing. Xiaomi Redmi 2 provides  high pixel density of 312 ppi.  The text appears sharp and the colors are vibrant with a small warm tinge on the phone. The display does well on the outdoors and the auto-brightness features helps very well for outdoor viewing. The display provides a good gaming and video playback experience.
Moving onto the design of the phone, Xiaomi Redmi 2 resembles its predecessor ,Xiaomi Redmi 1 but has a matte back cover this time. The phone looks like the miniature of Redmi Note 4g. The Voice Controls and the Power button are provided with a silver finish on the right hand side. There is a 3.5 mm audio jack on the top and a micro-usb jack at the bottom of the phone. Xiaomi Redmi 2 is 9.4 mm thick and feels a bit heavy weighing 133 gms. The edges are round and the rear matte finished cover provides a decent grip.

Xiaomi Redmi 2: Camera

The Xiaomi Redmi 2 has an 8 MP rear camera and a 2 MP Selfie snapper with LED Flash. The Camera is fully loaded with features and various filters and the camera interface is easy to use. The Camera provides a bit over saturated images but the colors pop out and displays an impressive image. You can click pictures in various modes like Twilight, Panaroma, HDR and the manual mode.
he rear Camera has a sensor of 1.3 micrometer pixel size. The camera performs well in the day conditions but suffers a bit in the night time. The autofocus is not the fastest but works well while clicking picture. It tends to take time while shooting a video. The Xiaomi Redmi 2 lets you record at 1080p at 30frps and lets you record a good quality video with good noise. It is not the best camera available but at a price range of Rs. 6999, I guess this does its job pretty well.

Software and Performance

The Xiaomi Redmi 2 has the MIUI 6 interface which is quite brilliant and runs on an older version of Android 4.4.4(kitkat). No words about the Android update from Xiaomi till now but may be we will be getting the lollipop update. The MIUI 6 is a fully customizable user interface which resemble the Apple IOS.
On the performance wise the phone works pretty well. Games like Modern Combat 5, Real Racing and NFS Most wanted played smoothly without any lag on medium settings. Gaming experience is really good. Gaming experience is enhanced by the audio output provided by the speaker which do provide a little bass. But the apps and games cannot be transferred into your micro-SD card.
On the Antutu benchmarks, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 scored 21155 which is more than Lenovo A6000 (20974). But it lags behind from Moto E 2015 (22061). This score is quite excellent for the price and specs. On the Nenamark 2 of fps scoring, the Redmi 2 gets a 54 fps which is equal to the Lenovo A6000  and higher than the Moto E 2015. On the Vellamo Benchmarks, the phone got a great 1555 which is 2 short of the Lenovo A6000 (1557) but beats its rival Moto E 2015 easily.

Battery Review for Xiaomi Redmi 2

The Xiaomi Redmi 2 has an 2200 mAh battery which lets you walk through  a whole day of normal usage with one time charge on 3G network. The phone has the Quick Charge 1.0. This enables the phone to charge your Redmi 2 upto 40 % faster. The battery may run out soon while play heavy games like NFS Most Wanted,etc. It would have been better if the smartphone has a bigger battery.

Verdict

At a price of 6999, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 has two major competitors – Moto E 2015 and Lenovo A6000. The Xiaomi Redmi 2 offers good specs and a good gaming experience. The phone camera stands tall against both of its rivals and does record videos in 1080p. Performance wise all the three smartphones stand equally. But the MIUI interface wins an edge
