RedMI 1S : a big NO
By Rizwan Khan | 15 Sep 2014
RedMI 1S : a big NO Beware of this Chinese product XioMI RedMI 1S. Don't get attracted to its cheap price. I bought this and faced a lot issues: Heat issue : It will be too hot when you play games, or while talking on phone or charging it. Processes crash frequently : All the processes related with browser, gallery, games or even keyboard crashes frequently and you will lost everything. Camera issues: issues when tried to zoom . Keypad issues : it stops working and disappears and only appears when you restart the phone. I think XioMI must campaign in this way : 1 GB RAM- with hanging issue . 8 MP. Camera- with zooming issue . Swype keypad- with disappearing issue and only appear when you restart the phone . Suitable in winter-It will keep you warmed with its heating issue . only @5999/- Rs. Now please don't say "Ab itne me or kya loge... "

The SAR value for this fine, please don't put negatice propaganda
By Vishal Pandey | 29 Oct 2014
A comment talks about the SAR value. The SAR value for this phone is 1.2W/kg, much less than the allowed max of 1.6W/kg in the U.S.A. So please don't do negative propaganda against this great product. I own a piece and the SAR value is printed on the box. Go check it.. Such negative propaganda killed a great Indian product called Nano, please refrain from it.
