The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 is a stylish smartphone loaded with great specifications inside out. You can save a good amount of songs, movies and videos as a massive storage is present under the hood. The addition of a front flash makes the device great for low light video calling. The two good quality cameras, at both ends, capture outstanding photos and record high-resolution videos. You can play heavy games as well as do multitasking without much lags as the powerful configuration comes to the fore. However, a better battery backup would have been a blessing in disguise for the users buying it.

    Firstly, isn't the Y1 going to be 10,000?
    Apart from that, obviously the Redmi 4, except if you are a selfie freak and need a 16 MP selfie camera, then the Y1 is a good thought.
    Y1 has a MUCH weaker processor, a below par display and even a smaller battery.
    We also know Mi has senseless camera optimization, so it is not a wise decision to take the Y1 over the Redmi 4.
    But if you really are a photo consumer needing really good cameras, alternatives like Micromax Canvas Infinity or Lava Pixel V2 or the srt.phone are great solutions but are at a slight premium over the Redmi 4, but have much better specs and cameras and are also Indian (Mi is chinese)
