  • Available RAM for apps is low
  • Boring design

It's safe to say that Xiaomi is the most talked-about new brand on the Indian tech scene today. The Chinese company has not spent any money on advertising and in fact seems pretty laid back about all the fuss it has caused by selling good phones at shockingly low prices.

Xiaomi Redmi 1S Summary

The Xiaomi Redmi 1S is a stellar device for those who are looking to buy a smartphone at a shoestring budget. This phones performs better than the ever-dependable Motorola Moto E and has a better camera too. The only problem is buying one since it is only available through a flash sale model on Flipkart.

  • SAR VALUE
    Nirmal Kulchandani (Aug 29, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    What is the SAR VALUE of xiaomi redmi 1s ? India is still a Developing Country many people are not aware of this SAR Value of which MNC companies take advantage by offering their Globally rejected technologies to Indian's. One should check SAR Value before Buying.......

  • XIOMI REDMI 1S Phone stopped working after 1 month
    Anil P (Feb 9, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    I have purchased Xiomi REDMI 1S on 13-11-2014. Last week the phone stopped working. When I switch the phone on, the XIOMI logo is coming but it is again getting switched off. I went to the XIOMI service at Kochi. They are telling that a drop of some liquid entered into the mobile board and board got damaged. But I am sure that the phone never dropped into water or any other liquid. Even the phone never dropped from my hand. They agreed that the phone never dropped into water. But they are telling that a drop of some liquid entered through the power button or volume button of the phone. How it will happen ????? Whether the sweat in my hand will enter to the phone??? It is a clear design/technical issue of the phone. But they are not ready to accept this under warranty agreements. Worst phone and worst service centre. Thier call centre executives also have no idea abot the technical details.

  • Battery gets heated
    Alageshan Lourdeswamy (Sep 27, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The battery get heated while talking. discharges quickly from full charge to empty in 6 hrs. On some days under same conditions only 1/3 of the battery get discharged in 20hrs. Cannot rely on the battery I carry a external power bank. I Never do a quick charge, leave it on charge during the night. Except for this the touch and display, speed is good. Fix my battery issue or tell me what im .doing wrong. My 3 yr old HTC one V does better last a whole day under exactly same conditions.
