I have one and facing many problems. I'm fed up of it and applied to return. Feel like I've mistaken and suggest you not to buy this crap chinese product. This phone is only good on paper. The only good thing is this phone will keep you warmer in this winter. I'm happy with my Micromax.

Dr David , 15 Oct 2014You are wise, unlike millions of fools buying this iron box!man i know this fon is get heated bt this problm is not prmanently this fonn is much bettr than other multitasking fon i bought it 2weeks ago bt now its norml. not heating now. bt in starting i registrd a complaint about its heating and want to return it. bt im satisfy now wid it prformance
Updated to 45.0 offical version from 43.0
in this 45.0 after noticing some lags and drop of performance i used cpu-z.. by this i found out that after 45.0 update cpu is set at 998mhz frequency from 1.594ghz..very disappointing by this update although heating issue is resolve by under clocking it but what's the use when we can't use this device properly
so switch back to cm11 kitkat and now everything is beautiful multitasking and even high end games..this device has wonderful gpu, cpu and all the other hardware but the miui rom is pathetic by under clocking the cpu they are fooling people that they fix the over heating issue..
Monts, 15 Oct 2014From where did you update your Redmi 1s to kitkat version ? please tell so that i will also up... moreNo I didn't update to kk.. There is no official update of kit Kate.. I read on some articles that kk will be available later this year..
zhubham, 15 Oct 2014How much did you get from the Chinese co to sing this praise?Bro it's my personal experience with it.. I bought this.. Even I already know what problems this device has.. But all problems are not permanent.. They are solved by v45 update.. But it's MIUI update.. When kk update will release later this year no problems will going to be arise.. My frnd has Micromax A1.. his phone is also awesome.. But when I compared his phone with mine there is no comparison with this red..

you know that you can expand your RAM memory with apps or with some little work
NOTE: CONVERT ONLY YOUR SD ROM IF YOU CONVERT YOUR ROM bye bye phone
Farhan, 13 Oct 2014No my Dear... Rooting means going beyond the factory setting... So WARRANTY surely VOIDS.So many misinformed people in this thread! ROOTING your redmi 1s will NOT VOID THE WARRANTY. But your warranty will be rejected if you install custom recovery such CWM and custom ROM such as CM11 or any OS other than MIUI.
Chandan, 14 Oct 2014Disadvantges Ram problem Xiaomi Redmi 1s,phone is just eating Ram just i am getting 200... moreuninstall google apps and everything you don't need.. it will free up the ram and make your phone very smooth.
1. It heats up fast when u make calls, Videos nd photos. ##### (Root and install cpu control and set max freq to 1.2ghz and min 300ghz - overheating problem will gone).
2. There is no option to set SD card as your default memory location for Camera photos, Videos and audios. (This is Big Disappointment to me because what is the use of SD card then)#### It has option to save it on SD card from os v37 up....
Dont buy this phone. Lot of problems and low quality.
Phone is heating.Cannot hold it. It is so hot.
