if you have used Xiaomi or MIUI devices before, 1gb is enough for daily use.
Ram usage in an android is optimized differently from Windows. The system tends to take up most ram space to get prompt response.
india is a scrape ground for xiaomi as redmi 2 with 1gb ram doesn't live up in china.
@GSMArena staff: Now, you guys made it "Red 2" in the 2nd paragraph after the picture. :D But that's an apparent mistake, so it won't confuse anyone... Lol.
BTW I already have Redmi 1S, in use daily.
I think Redmi 2 is definitely better in almost all matters, but since we already know its problems with 1 GB RAM, I wouldn't go for 1 GB version of this.
I would gladly go for 2GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory limited edition.
8gb with 1 gb ram is not at all a upgrade from 1s....will wait for redmi 2s. Hopefully it comes soon.

This phone does not has corning gorilla glass protection like other phones but you can buy amzer tpu cover and it can prtect phone when it falls on ground. Do not think but buy this phone. I will buy 16 gb version with 2 gb ram.

The screen protection isn't mentioned in specs available at mi.com/in or any other place. Could you please verify this? I am concerned about it because my wife's phone has a broken display and I was hoping to replace it with this one.
Snapdragon 420?!!! as far as I know there are snapdragon 410, 415 & 425, but there is no 420 version!!
