Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Review – An Affordable Speedster

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is the Chinese smartphone manufacturer’s latest addition to their handset line. It is the kind of phone that you are looking for when you are in need of a big screen that is coupled with features that are all placed at a very decent price point. Even though its hardware and software specs are nothing to jump on your bed with glee, it is a fairly great performer especially when talking about its processing speeds.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Has a Fairly Large Screen With Fairly Decent Performance

At 5.5-inches, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is not hard to deal with when speaking about gripping it with one hand. Like all other phones created by the tech company, it has a custom version of the Android UI called MIUI. Furthermore, like just about every Chinese smartphone in the market, it takes an element found in Apple’s design and puts all the apps inside the home screen by default.

One plus side about smartphones from Xiaomi is that the company likes to keep their handsets clean. This means that there is a lack of bloatware installed within the Redmi Note 2, which is always a plus. The 13-megapixel rear snapper is not the best out there but it can still take pretty decent images, that is with enough natural light.

Apart from its 5.5-inch full-HD display, Xiaomi’s latest smartphone comes with other features. For instance, it sports a MediaTek Helio X10 octa-core 64-bit processor which is the brains underneath the gadget. It also contains a pretty decent 2GB of RAM, which is not a lot but it does the job well. It also has 16GB of internal storage which is somewhat low, but the company added in a microSD card slot to the device should users want to expand said storage capacity.

Like the iOS, Xiaomi dropped the app drawer in favor of placing everything on the home screen. You can still easy sort apps and put them into folders. There is also a smart feature that will allow you to drag an app icon while using another one as you flip the “page” to get to a new screen.

On benchmark tests, the MediaTek Helio X10 chip is a bit more powerful than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor. This is great as you get more performance on a smartphone that won’t hurt your wallet too much.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is placed at a budget price point which is great for people who want fast processing prowess with a price tag that won’t put a large hole in your wallet.
