Redmi 1s has 3 major problems
1. Heating issue - still there is no working solution to this issue
(I updated to miui43, previously i tried cyanogenmod 11, mooke rom, i underclocked cpu to 3ghz but heating problem is still there)
2. Poor ram management - still no solution, simple apps like fb watsapp r still crashing lagging and hanging
3. Very poor battery backup - no solution yet, battery draining drastically, even in idle mode battery braining very fast

Rishi 11, 06 Oct 2014Do you really want us to buy a faulty phone as its so called cheap in its class and then learn... moreWhen did I say I want you to buy a phone, let alone a faulty one? I was responding to a person who I think do not own redmi but said it is no good. I said redmi has the best hardware, but bad software, and that software is easily replaceable with an alternative called cm11 (cyanogenmod 11, http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/CyanogenMod ). I think most person would require one hour or two to learn how to flash cm11, even if they don't know anything, when given a good instruction, such as this: http://en.miui.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=48397.&mobile=no . And if they can do it, I'd say there is no better handset for the price.

Before the review, i want to list down the handsets i have used -
Sony Xperia ION,
Sony Xperia ZR,
Samsung Galaxy Note,
Sony Xperia SOla.
Here is my review for the Redmi 1s -
1. Display - The display quality is comparable to most of the phones under 25000/- . At 323 pixels, display is better than my expectation. Yes, colors are not as good as SONY, but still pretty good.
2. Heating problem - I was pretty worried about this when received the phone. I immediately removed the apps which i am not going to use. to take care of the rest, i downloaded GREEENIFY app, which can control apps running in background. Right now, I am on a call for last 65 mins with 3G and HOTSPOT on. still no heating issues.
3. Battery - Battery is OK. that's what Ii have to say. the outcome depends upon the way you use the phone.
4. Camera - Camera quality is no way worse than 8MP camera coming in Sony phones. Day light pictures are amazing. Indoor pictures need a bit of expertise. Overall good quality camera.
5. value for Money - Well this is the point where this phone can defeat any other phone in the market. remember, this is just a 5999 Rs phone. Comparing it with the likes of Samsung galaxy 4/5 etc is like comparing an Alto car with BMW, Mercedes. What package you are getting at this price means the most and for that i will rate this phone 10/10. Even if this phone was being sold at 15000, i would have still given it 7/10. Brands like Micromax, carbonn, lava etc are selling really cheap and useless products at similar prices. Redmi is much much better than all of those.
