Xiaomi became No. 5 smartphone maker in India (Quarter 4 - 2014 as per IDC Report). Xiaomi Redmi 2 will compete with Motorola Moto E (2nd Gen) 3G Dual-SIM which was recentrly launched in India on Flipkart at the same price.
The Xiaomi Redmi 2 is helping the organization cross into the 64-bit time. A sufficiently snappy feature for a spin-off that is not excessively liberal with the updates. Actually, another era chipset (lower-midrange yet), a later OS and LTE are not a bundle to glare on. Particularly considering that the redesign costs the same - if not less - than the ancestor.
Xiaomi Redmi 1S had been a big accomplishment along with good specifications with an exceptional price tag. The levels are generally excessive with the successor as well as the Xiaomi Redmi 2 just isn't seeking to deal with what exactly was not shattered. That bears on the sober looks shedding a few unwanted fat without having restricting the particular screen real state and image resolution. LTE connectivity along with the first dual-SIM functionality is also a good addition.
