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.

Not happy with this phone
13 Sep 2014 By RAHUL KUMAR On flipkart.com

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.
