Value for money

Display and configuration

The Xiaomi Redmi 1s flaunts a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. It runs Android 4.3, further enhanced by MIUI v5. Under the hood ticks a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz, complemented by 1GB of RAM.

Although the MIUI ROM loaded on the phone is excellent in terms of features and user-friendliness, but comes with a few bugs resulting in to issues like overheating, poor RAM management, poor battery backup etc.

Camera and storage

The Xiaomi Redmi 1s is equipped with an 8-megapixel camera assisted by an LED flash for low-light photography. It also gets a 1.3MP camera at the front for video chatting and selfies. The handset holds 8GB of flash storage onboard, out of which only 4.48GB is available to users. You can expand the memory up to 32GB using a microSD card.

Connectivity and battery

Connectivity options in the Xiaomi Redmi 1s include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP, GPS, USB, USB on-the-go etc. Responsible to keep the device fuelled is a 2,000mAh battery, which is user replaceable.

Verdict

Want to get a high-end smartphone, but low on budget, the Xiaomi Redmi 1s is your thing. The handset brings you the Snapdragon 400 SoC, HD display and an 8-megapixel camera in a price range reserved for entry level smartphones. If you can accumulate enough trust for this new Chinese entrant in the Indian marketplace, go for it. We hope the bugs will be fixed with upcoming software upgrades. Although, device is not available anymore in India, so one can go with new Xiaomi Redmi 2 which comes with the same specs and price tag.

  • Xiaomi Redmi 1s camera review: a pair of snappers that will keep you trigger-happy

    "Here's how the Redmi 1s fared in our camera test."While budget smartphones have progressed leaps and bounds in screen resolution, processors and internal storage, one aspect which continues to be compromised is the camera department. Fixed focus, no flash and the lack of a front camera are sacrifices we’ve become accustomed to, but no more. For its price of Rs 5,999, the Xiaomi Redmi 1s brings to the table an 8-megapixel primary camera with LE...

    Overall: Company has given all best features in Redme 1s, but it has not thought of his own GUI which consumes more RAM and due that it has become worst phone in my view.nnI am facing 1 big issue in it.nthe apps gets auto close. may be this is due to less RAM available.nThe MUI GUI consumes lot of memory, which leaves very less for other apps.nI tried Asphalt game, some time it automatically gets close.nthis has happen with even the default Music player.nnInitially I thought its a defective peace, but later after seeing same issue in my colleagues phone, then I realized that REDME 1s phone is not that good.nnEither company has to find solution for it, or it will just disappoint all Redme 1s user, which is really not good. nnThe built quality, screen display, viewing angle etc all are good. but due to above mention problem it has disappointed.
