    I got this device very soon from Amazon. Good delivery. Read this review to get a comprehensive idea.
    Pros and Cons:
    1.720P HD resolution looks better on a 4.7i screen than a 5i screen. So this is better than its competitors (Yuphoria, Lenovo A6000 Plus). Best display in this price range.
    2.MIUI6 pre-installed but MIUI 7 update is available right in first boot itself. I know it isn’t lollipop. But MIUI is one of the best custom skins on android. So you’ll like the interface. It’s extremely customizable and has a lot of features baked into it. Best User Interface :Yuphoria (CM 12.1)
    3.SD410 with 2 gigs of RAM is plenty for multitasking. During first boot and when no apps are running in the background you get around 1.2GB of RAM free. The performance on this device is pretty good .Disclaimer :Gaming with normal to mid – heavy games are lag-free and good. But games like Asphalt 8,N.O.V.A 3 etc. are slightly laggy and the frame rates on these games appeared very mediocre. So if you’re looking for a gaming smartphone under 7k go for it or better go for the Note Prime. Best performance and gaming :Redmi 2 prime
    4.Battery life is pretty mediocre in my time of usage. For moderate it light usage it may last for a day but if your a heavy user you might need to plug in in the evening. Screen on-time that i got was about 3 hours on light usage. But on heavy use (Wifi, 4G always on, Max brightness, 2 hours of music over headphones and 15 minutes of gaming and 6 hours of Social networking) i received only about 2.5 hours. The competition in this price range over around 5 to 10 percent battery life than this. Best battery life :Lenovo A6000 Plus
    5.The camera on this device is one of the main highlights .The rear camera is among the best in this price range and can take great photos in good lighting conditions. Low – light performance was above average and the rear flash helps a lot and gives a natural lighting to the photos. The front camera was pretty decent but the problem was that it couldn’t capture much of detail.
    Best Rear Camera :Redmi 2 prime
    Best front camera :Yuphoria
    6.Overall the Redmi 2 prime and Yu Yuphoria seem to be equally good buys.
    If you want better performance, rear camera,gaming ,user-friendly UI go for the Redmi.
    If you want a more customizable UI, better front camera and build quality, battery life go for the Yuphoria
    If you want a battery oriented device with good performance go for the A6000 Plus
    Important points:
    Updates :
    1.Yuphoria is about to receive an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow based on CM13.
    2.There are rumors tha the Prime could go to 6.0 directly from Kitkat skipping the Lollipop update.
    3.No news regarding updates to Vibe UI Lite.
    1.Supported in the Prime and Yuphoria. Not supported in the A6000 Plus
    Build quality :
    1.Yuphoria offers excellent build with metal to the sides and a symmetrical design.
    2.A6000 Plus and Redmi offer decent build quality.
    This is a user review. Sorry if there are mistakes. This is my opinion. And this review is posted only after purchasing and using all three of the devices

    Phone is just second name of what u can imagine beauty is. Stunning looks, you don’t even have to put an ugly screen guard because its scratch resistant (trust me it is) which makes the phone look even better. User interface which is MIUI above android stock. Makes it even better. There are many more themes to apply from MIUI database. for example iOS 9 theme. which will make ur phone system exactly like iphone few minus plus. more or less the same for someone who has not used iphone. The price point at which this phone is available is a catch to everyone. Yes there is a heating issue with this phone. Trust me all the guys here saying this phone is a heater must be obsessed with heat. The phone dsnt heat so much. for clarification I REPEAT * THE PHONE DSNT HEAT SO MUCH, JUST A LITTLE WHILE CHARGING* Camera is average. great shots in daylight, not so good at low light. The user interface consumes most of the RAM. Which is a pretty big issue, because after heavy work on some application u might find yourself in *LOADING LAUNCHER* popup. Which might be irritating most of the time. But it can be solved. BUT FOR GAMING PEOPLE. THIS PHONE IS NOT FOR YOU GUYS. (WE KNOW YOU GUYS DON’T BUY PRODUCTS AT THIS RANGE) BUT STILL. DON’T BUY IF YOU WANT TO PLAY GAMES ON THIS DEVICE. If XIOMI is communicating with SD team or if SD team can communicate with XIOMI i would like to request you guys to please roll out an update of MIUI where more RAM can be available for user. This phone is great, but this RAM issue can be problematic in long run. This problem can be solved by xiomi side. SO why not solve it. and if still you are unsatisfied Cynogen mod for this phone is always available. boot it. and enjoy lag free phone experience. OVER ALL AN AVERAGE PHONE.

    Thanks to a barrage of great phones over the last one year, Xiaomi has solidified its position in the Indian smartphone market as a respectable player. The company has some solid devices in the low- to mid-range segment that offer unmatched value for money.

    Recently, the company unveiled its latest smartphone in India: the Redmi 2 Prime. As its name suggests, the Redmi 2 Prime is a ‘prime’ version of the existing Redmi 2 handset, which is among the most popular budget phones available in India. There are two things that makes the Redmi 2 Prime special: it is the first handset from Xiaomi to be manufactured under the ‘Make in India’ campaign and it comes with a double the storage and RAM compared to the original Redmi 2. The latter is a big deal since an increase in RAM can greatly increase the performance of a device. So, how good is the Redmi 2 Prime? Is it better than the second generation Moto E? Read our review to find out.

    Build Quality:-
    Pick up the Redmi 2 Prime and you will instantly notice how light the phone is and how slippery its removable plastic back is. The 8MP F/2.2 camera protrudes ever so slightly, but its not big enough to cause the phone to wobble when it is lying flat on a table. Prying open the back cover will give you access to the removable 2200mAh battery, which comes in Xiaomi’s trademarked deep orange color. Take out the battery and you will gain access to the two microSIM card slots and the microSD card slot of the handset.

    The power and the volume button are located on the right edge of the Redmi 2 Prime and are actually a part of the back cover itself. Ideally, I would have preferred Xiaomi to place the volume and power buttons on the opposite edges of the phone. Since the phone comes with a 4.7-inch display, and I have a large palm, I kept hitting the volume button every time I took the phone out from my pocket. This problem, thankfully, can be bypassed by enabling Volume Wake in MIUI. The buttons offer decent tactile feedback, though the power button does feel a bit squishy.From the front, the Redmi 2 Prime looks well…boring. Considering its price point though, this should not really be a surprise. The all-black front does a good job of blending the 4.7-inch display with the bottom and top bezels. The bottom bezel also houses the three capacitive navigation keys: menu, home, and back. They are red in color and are not backlit, so if you are anything like me, you are going to struggle to press the damn buttons when you are in a dark room.

    The Redmi 2 Prime comes with a 4.7-inch 720p IPS display — a pretty standard fare in budget smartphones available in this range. Head on, the display is good enough for day-to-day usage with more than ample brightness levels, contrast ratio, and touch response. Make no mistake though; the display is not going to win any awards for color accuracy or contrast levels, but it is more than good enough to get the job done.

    Even when you look at the phone from sideways or just about any other angle, the display remains visible, though with a yellowish tint to it. The display does not sit as close to the glass as it does on the Mi 4i, but considering that the latter is priced at 2x its retail price, this trade off is not something that anyone using the Prime will complain about.

    Software & Performance:-

    Like every other device from Xiaomi, the Redmi 2 Prime runs on MIUI 6, which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat. The amount of customisation options offered in MIUI are mind boggling, and can be overwhelming for a first time smartphone user. For users who love customisation though, MIUI will come as a breath of fresh air. The skin allows you to tweak almost every aspect of the UI according to your liking, and its powerful theme engine makes sure that you can spice up things, in case you get bored with the stock look.My major gripe with the Redmi 2 Prime’s software, is that it still runs on KitKat — a version of Android that was released nearly two years ago. It does not matter if MIUI offers an experience that is completely unrelated to what Android version it runs on, as apps that take advantage of the new APIs of Lollipop are not going to run on it.

    The Redmi 2 Prime is powered by a Snapdragon 410 chipset, which is a pretty standard fare for devices in the same price range. However, the device comes with 2GB RAM — still rare in sub-$150 Android devices — that gives it an edge over its competition. Thanks to the extra RAM, the Prime is a better multitasker than its non-Prime version. as it is able to keep apps for much longer in its memory.

    The extra gig of RAM also helps the handset while playing games, as heavy games like Riptide GP2 lag less when compared to the Moto E or even the Redmi 2. That’s not to say that the Prime is able to handle heavy games without any kind of stuttering though; there is still plenty of jerks and frame drops while playing games like Asphalt 8, which does ruin the overall experience of playing them. Casual games like Flow, Threes! and Dots run just fine on the handset, though.


    The Redmi 2 Prime comes with an 8MP shooter with an F/2.2 aperture. If that was not impressive enough, the handset is also capable of recording Full HD videos, which was almost an unheard of feature in devices available in this price range just six months ago.

    The photos shot from the Redmi 2 Prime have a typical Xiaomi-feel to them. Colors and saturation are both increased to add a pop effect to the photos. The low-light performance of the camera is disappointing, as the sensor fails to suck in a decent amount of light or capture any meaningful details.The camera performance is just one part of the whole camera experience. The camera app also plays a very major role, and thankfully, the Redmi 2 Prime does not disappoint here. The handset has a camera app that is very similar to what is found in other devices from Xiaomi, though it lacks certain advance features and options which is understandable since it does not have enough grunt to run them.

    Battery Life & Conclusion:-

    The Redmi 2 Prime comes with a 2200mAh removable battery, which is easily able to power the device through a day of heavy usage. I constantly managed to get more than 5 hours of screen-on time on the Prime over a period of 1.5 days on 3G/4G network. On light usage, I was able to make the phone last through one whole weekend plus the Monday that followed. Keep in mind that this was with 2 Gmail accounts syncing in the background and a messaging clients like WhatsApp, Hangouts and Telegram running in the background.

    To conclude this review, all I have to say is that the Redmi 2 Prime is easily the best smartphone available in this price range. While the handset running KitKat is definitely a bummer, it more than makes up for it in other departments. Only if you are a first time smartphone user, I will recommend you to buy the Moto E for the stock Lollipop experience it offers. Otherwise, the Redmi 2 Prime is a no-brainer for anyone looking for a smartphone under Rs. 7,000 ($120).

  9. Maestro

    1. Good sized screen (4.7″)
    2. Faster performance
    3. Simpler user interface (Thanks to MIUI 6)
    4. Design and the plastic quality is quite good
    5. The front camera (Selfie) gives a good wide angle and nice range. Though its 2.0 MP, it feels better than that
    6. Gives good network range and call quality
    7. Extremely good battery life, it lasted 36hrs comfortably with occasional browsings too. Similar use from my S3 gave only about 12 hrs. (MIUI kills background apps, but still this serves good if used in 3G network and travelling)
    8. Lightning fast charging, this helps you feel you never gets blacked out.
    9. Phone doesn’t get heated up so much even while using 3G
    10. Many themes are available, giving you an option for customized appearance and styles
    11. Budget range, better configuration.

    1. The built-in Download application works all time so that almost all contents will be downloaded automatically (too annoying). There is an option to limit it to 512KB or wait for WiFi, but anything around will be shown as waiting to download and you will always need to clear this.
    2. If you don’t open the developer option and customized phone options (available for enthusiasts and experts), you can’t select options like 3G only. Hence the networks alternates regularly between 3G and 2G and your browsing will be affected well.
    3. Many had told about lack of earphones in the box. Yes, truly annoying
    4. Any application other than Whatsapp will need special permissions to show notifications. Or else you will have to open the apps and check for latest notifications.
