Xiaomi Redmi Note 2

 

The latest and greatest phone from the company known as "the Apple of the East", the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 continues the company's trend of offering impressive specifications at astonishingly low prices. It's also one of the fastest selling phones of all...

Amazing specs for the price ; MIUI 7 is one of the best Android skins ; 13-megapixel camera takes brilliant shots swiftly ; Case feels a bit cheap

No NFC ; No quick charging

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 review

 

Xiaomi is one of China's leading tech firms right now thanks to its popular line of smartphones and tablets, and while the company is yet to make any serious inroads into western markets, it has expanded with incredible success into other Asian...

In its native China the Redmi Note 2 retails for around £100, but resellers are shipping it to Europe for approximately £125. That puts the handset firmly in the budget sector, but the specifications are anything but frugal. A Mediatek-made 2.2GHz...

Aside from some niggles with the build quality - the clip-on rear panel is quite creaky under pressure - and the lack of NFC and fast-charging, this is essentially a cutting-edge Android phone at a bargain basement price point - and it's easy to...

While flagship Android devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 might offer more features and functionality, they cost three times as much as Xiaomi's offering and arguably come with a less appealing UI. It's easy to accept the minor things that are missing...

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 ( white)

 

Personally, I don't really like displays larger than 5 inches, as they make it a tad uncomfortable to use with one hand, but the 5.5-inch Redmi Note 2 didn't seem too hard to get used to. Perhaps it's because I've been testing out the Apple Watch with...

Xiaomi's Redmi Note 2 may be cheap, but it packs in good performance with a reliable camera and expandable storage.

The phone is pretty much limited to countries in Asia for now, and there's no indication it will head westward anytime soon. Camera color accuracy is a problem indoors and battery life is good, but not great.

The Redmi Note 2 is yet another Xiaomi smartphone that delivers good performance at a low price -- but those outside Asia however will have a hard time getting one.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 review: Wallet-friendly Note 2 manages to pack in the performance with a low-cost chip

 

Xiaomi's latest smartphone, the Redmi Note 2, is the kind of phone you're looking for when you need a big screen and features at a low cost, even if its specs aren't all that exciting. As the last new phone the Chinese smartphone maker is selling...

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Review

 

Sold for the equivalent of just $140 in China (and about $30 to $50 on top of that through e-tailers), the Note 2 sounds incredible on paper: a large, 1080p display, a powerful octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a 13MP camera. The question is,...

Very good screen-to-body ratio ; Well-balanced display ; MIUI is versatile and reliable ; IR blaster available ; Good call quality ; Good battery life

Creaky backplate that can drive you mad ; Built-in Xiaomi apps aren't 100% translated to English ; MIUI comes with bloatware ; Camera could use some work

At about $170 to $190 (excluding any possibly applicable import fees), the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is a hard phablet to beat, though certainly not unopposed. For around that kind of money, you can get Meizu's m2 Note 5.5-incher, which sports a nearly...

The Redmi Note definitely has a family resemblance to the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, except that the rear cover is a glossy white. The front face is quite plain, with black glass surrounded by a slightly raised black plastic edging. It sport two sim card. The...
