Bad Display sturdiness
By Mona Navare | 6 Nov 2018 | 6 Nov 2018
Redmi Y2 phone is extremely brittle phone. Or it is delivered with extremely bad manufacturing quality. My phone with a simple shock got some problem with display. There is not a single scratch on phone but the screen has gone very bad. With just a week use, the display is gone so bad that phone is not usable. Can somebody from MI help?
