Not too long after launching the Redmi 2, Xiaomi has released a mid-lifecycle refresh called the Redmi 2 Prime. The new release, which is more of a variant than a whole new model, brings a slight but significant bump to the spec sheet which will help the company fend off fresh competition. The Redmi 2 is sticking around at its recently reduced price of Rs. 5,999 which allows the new Redmi 2 Prime to step in at its predecessor's original launch price of Rs. 6,999.

Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime Summary

The new Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime is for all practical purposes identical to its predecessor, the Xiaomi Redmi 2. They both look and feel identical, because nothing has changed on the outside. The only differences in the spec sheet are that the new model comes with twice as much RAM and storage space. However we did perceive slight software tweaks when using both side by side; the Redmi 2 Prime fixes some of the bugs we noted with the older model resulting in a better display and better photo quality. This new phone comes in at its predecessor’s launch price, which means it offers better value.

    As the price segment i was very great full to brand,its just for 7k!!!! Realy sounds like very good with bundle of 1.2 ghz,8mp/2mp camera,2gb/16gb of ram/rom and offcourse a very insane quality system ui that i've ever seen on any devices.And always feeling better with redmi prime build quality with the great sounds both loud and earphone and reliable battery of 2200mah its stick with u around a day.so i really suggest it to my more friends to go with redmi prime and others from xiaomi.

  • Awesome...!
    Vishal Sahu (Jun 11, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I've been using this phone from 22nd oct 2015 and d only issue i face is that the device heats up too often while using camera, playing games, and using instagram. The phone runs very nicely. Lag free performance.. Gud camera clarity based on specs. Battery backup is decent and the phone gives approx 1 day battery backup with decent usage on low brightness setting.. Overall the phone is a very good deal at the price range...!

  • Excellent Mobile !!!!!
    yuvraj rane (Feb 9, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    undefinedI am reviewing this mobile after using it for 3 months. 1st and most this is excellent mobile in this price range. Till now I have got MI7 update and with every update I am getting more RAM. Initially when I used this mobile i was getting 700 to 800 MB RAM but After getting OS update I am now getting 1 to 1.2 GB RAM. This is excellent. With every update I am getting good RAM and good battery backup. thanks to MI for this. Performance of mobile is constant rather getting better with every update. I loved the Rear camera quality of the mobile most. I Compared it with Samsung, Moto's 8 MP Camera. As compared to them the quality far better. HD Video Quality is also Very good. Call quality, sound quality also awesome. Battery backup is also good, getting 1 & 1/2 days of battery backup with fare uses. for camera video quality you can check video captured by me on following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNtaaGEDisY

  • Value for Money... Paisa Vasool... ;)
    Sankar Raman (Dec 28, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    Using this mobile since 4 months. I found some Pros and Cons according to my view. Pros: 1. Nice budget mobile under 7000. 2. Good Camera and under low lighting conditions, flash light helps you out. 3. No heating issues on normal usage. 4. Decent call quality and audio recordings. 5. Video recording is also seems to be good. Cons: 1. Outdated OS, but still Lollipop or KitKat does not matter in MIUI. 2. Gets heated when we use 3G / LTE internet for long time. I didn't face any other issues other than heating. Sometimes you setting for Performance matters thus reducing the battery life of your mobile. My Advice for fair usage and bug free usage is: 1. Use performance mode in balanced so that the operating system optimizes the battery as well as performance of your mobile. 2. When you are not using the internet try to make your mobile network setting as "2G" only so that it saves some battery.. :) 3. Always prefer Stable builds and its recommended to use official MIUI based ROMs rather than other unofficial Custom ROMs. In case of any other software related issues. Please feel free to drop me a mail @ ramsankar0206@gmail.com Regards Sankar Raman Senior Member - MIUI
