to inset your sim card read the instructoions that came with your device
Had mines for 8 months (July 19, 2014) and it might just be the best smartphone I ever owned. Superior to the HTC One M7 I owned before.
No expandable storage
No removable battery
Sound speaker can be low
Screen is too warm
MIUI v6 got buggy for me
Battery life can range from 5 hr - 10 hr SOT
Fast and smooth with low RAM usage using a ROM
MIUI was great but on a custom stock 4.4.4 AOSP now
MIUI community supports flashing ROMS
Better phone and value than Nexus 5
HDR mode is good
When I was on MIUI5, it was buggy and I had to reboot it almost every day to clear the RAM. Then on MIUI6, the touch response got too sensitive which messed up my typing. Now on a custom stock ROM, those issues went away. Fast, fluid, maintain the same good battery life, and 99% bug-free. MIUI can be cool with customization but troublesome. Stock Android is boring but I prefer better performance in most cases over design.
Best smartphone under $250...

xiaomi reality, 21 Mar 2015Do xiaomi phones send private data like photos messages and other inf to Chinese survers . if ... moreXiaomi has backup cloud for that effect. If you enable backup to Xiaomi Cloud, of course data will be sent. Disable all backup to Xiaomi Cloud and NOTHING will be sent. Or you can choose wich items to backup to China servers.

No international warranty, kills online buying. Cost of repair too high to send back to China. Local Xiaomi Service centre refused to repair as phone not bought through them

I am from delhi and have purchased Redme 1s on 16 Dec. In 1st week of FEB 2015 the phone stop working and I submitted to Lajpat Nagar Service center, they told that h/w will be repaired and it will take 15 days. Its now more than 1 month and did not get my phone yet. I have chased Service center as well as MI Customer care more than 100 times but none of them give any positive response. I have also filed a complaint in consumer court against this poor quality product.
I would also suggest to my friend, please do not waste your money for this poor Chinese product.
