How can you guys download big games (eg.Asphalt 8) when the phone's storage is only 4 gb and about 60% of it is taken up by bloatware and the software(leaving about 1.6gb). Only the storage is preventing me from purchasing this phone. So can you guys tell me how to download the large games? Ashalt 8 is 1.8 gb.
been using this phone since 25 may 2014. Accessories was easy to find, no problem with the memory, antutu x benchmark varies from 12k to 16.7k. Camera wise, pictures taken with bright/day light was better and if you enable flash in the dark area, response from camera was some how slow, not sharp but still very good compare to other brand. I tried switching the camera to on, and move the phone up and down few times to see the response, it was by far worst than s4, iphone 5s, galaxy note 3, lenovo s660 model. I enter the engineering mode to make the sound loudest to value 160 but still very bad. watching movie with this phone u must use ear phone or else u'll be facing problem listening to the sound output maybe due to the speaker placed behind. In terms of screen, sometimes response of screen was slow but never hang and so far, this is the only phone with the current stable rom JHBCNBD15.0 i never have issue of force close or reboot. For the price its cheapest phone with good quality spec compare to lenovo s650. for price of rm459, i couldn't fine any other trustable brand of phone can give such a good and low price. playing game of nfs most wanted and fifa 14 or asphalt 8 have no issue except some laggy condition playing asphalt 8 compare to asus zenfone 5.
jin, 20 Jun 2014can anyone let me know how is the battery last? With WiFi always on, lots of web navigation, calls and fotos/videos, it lasts over 1,5 days. Recomend it.
Seriously, this phone is worth to buy
Best Value for Money
if Xiaomi Expanded to whole world i bet other brand will change their price as lowest as Xiaomi...
Buy it and love it
I bought this phone and i love it. It is different from the other phone that i used to before. Thanks xiaomi for a such worthy cheap phone
Obet21, 15 May 2014I just bought Xiaomi Redmi, so far this is the best gadget under $220 I've ever got, Quadqore ... morewhere you bought it?
what can not be updated?
because I want to buy in malaysia
Can this phone get 3G in Indonesia?
With telkomsel or indosat or xl card?
Singapore selling at s$169 on xiaomi website.
had this device for almost 5 months now. from a customer point of view, i can say that i am very satisfied with the specs/price ratio.
this is a good phone, a reliable, well designed, well equipped gadget. really worths every penny, no doubt here.
nothing fancy about rooting also. it's done in a few easy steps (plenty of info on miui forums; just check it out). after installing the google framework along with all its apps, you're good to go.
because all of the above, i recommend the redrice xiaomi version, because it happens i kinda heart this little toy :)
Anonymous, 13 May 2014What is 1.4 µm pixel?It is the size of a single individual pixel inside that 8MP sensor. To be honest, 1.4 micro meters is actually the average size for most modern phones. In fact, it's not really a bragging point since it's the absolute minimum size required for acceptable pictures.
This is a good phone. I have had it for about 3 weeks, and love it. I had an S2, and now this, which I realize is a give gap in speed/technology. i don't need super speed or 40 MP camera, this phone has all the nice things of the S4 and iFone 5. It is not perfect, but it is a really nice phone.
I just bought Xiaomi Redmi, so far this is the best gadget under $220 I've ever got, Quadqore 1,5Ghz and dual simcard. 3G all operator in Indonesia
well, there are 2 versions:
TD-SCDMA: used only in China (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TD-SCDMA)
W-CDMA (aka international 3G): used in other countries
If your Xiaomi Hongmi doesn't work with 3G, it is most likely that you own the one intended to be sold only in China.
