Excellent Phone

published

This model is now superseded. The phone is fantastic for the price paid. If you maintain it well, the phone will last.
The screen occasionally freezes (once every 2 or 3 months) and I will simply just reboot the phone.
Everything else is great, however the camera is not the best.

Xiamoi Redmi Note 2

published

This model is now superceded but can still be picked up cheaply. Please ensure you get teh Glocal ROM rather than the Chinese one (unless you are Chinese).

This is an excellent general purpose phone with a great 13 megapixel camera. It is Android with a custom skin (MIUI) and there is a great forum online for help. You can download apps from the Play store and most work with the phone

At under $200 it is great value. One final recommendation though, don't upgrade the firmware to MIUI as it causes excessive battery use. Leave it at version 7. Also buy a cheap phone wallet and screen protector as insurance against dropping the phone.

Enjoy

After 6 months BG problems

published

After using the phone for 6 months is starting to show how BAD this phone really is. The telephone simply turned off by itself after using for some time. Trying to factory date reset but it simply doesn't accept my so you cannot do anything at all. Wrote many mails to this guy's but they don't care.
Be aware.

Nice phone

published

A really nice phone with a good screen size, and it was really good for the Dual SIM card feature. However as Telstra has shut down their 2G network, the dual SIM feature is soon to be rendered useless once the remaining Telcos shut down their 2G networks as well.

The battery life for this phone was very poor, often the battery would completely drain from a full charge to 0% in two days, even without using the phone at all.

Good Cheap Phone

published

Xiaomi Redmi 2 is a great phone, but the lack of NFC and quick charging are irksome, as its creaky case design.
Ordering a Redmi Note 2 from abroad isn't without its risks and you should ensure that the company you buy it from flash it with the global ROM, but aside from that it's a pain-free experience getting the device setup.

I never expected from the andoid device such a fantastic work!
The previous galaxy s4 was quite disappointing! This device works so perfect! And you have it for 250 USD guys! really perfect phone! I just dont like that wifi signal does not catch so nice as galaxy's, bluetooth is fine, camera is perfect too!
