* This mobile has lot of issues like over heating, poor ram management, battery drain, poor display under sunlight, bulky MiUI with lot of bugs, app crashes, very poor loud speaker etc
* after buying this mobile u have to dig in all these issues like rooting, custom roms, cyanogenmod 11, under or over clocking cpu(manufacturer dont know how to clock?lol), waiting and waiting for stable custom rom, begging for cm11 in their foroms(LOL). What the use of learning all these things? Will u open a mobile repair shop?LOL
* only good thing about this mobile is that it is cheap, so u save money, but after buying this mobile u waste ur valuable time, TIME IS MORE VALUABLE THAN MONEY
* my advice: if u dont want mobile urgently then wait for android one 2nd phase coming in december, if u want mobile urgently then go for either moto e or android one. If u dont care about camera then go for moto e otherwise go for android one
The information on the web site is outdated. At the bottom of that page there is a product brief in pdf that states 1.6 GHz max. 1S uses newer qualcomm msm8228 that has 1.6GHz max clock speed, not overclocked msm8226 1.2 GHz as rumour says. Proof: http://en.miui.com/thread-49899-1-1.html . The heating problem is caused by bad design MIUI OS. Flash to CM11 kitkat, http://en.miui.com/thread-46610-1-1.html , and all problems with heating, short battery life, stability, multitasking, etc will go away. Some of the default setting of CM11 may caused some to think there are bugs, like no ringtones on sim2 (it is assignable in the setting of the dialer, not in android general setting), camera focus mode uses continuous as default instead of auto that causes problem in video recording, etc. Most of the problems on CM11 are minor and solvable. I use green power with cm11 r4, and I get around 15 hours battery life on my handset instead of only 6 hours on MIUI. Highly recommended.
The Reason why redmi heats up
1st of all
the max supprted cpu speed is upto 1.4 ghz arm cortex a7
listed on the official snapdragon website
and redmi is having 1.6 ghz as u can all seee
so i think it comes factory overclocked for improved performance since its running miui which demands cpu speed
so thats why battery drain and heating issues
The fix i recommend
first of all root ur redmi
dnt wrry it wont void ur warranty as xiaomi doesnt mind u rooting the phone :)
nw after that install no-frills cpu control and underclock ur cpu to 1.4 ghz
and that should do it :")
Note this is my own personal thinking
and it might not be true also
but this thing worked for my friend so it will surely work for u all too :)
SunilShetty, 02 Oct 2014after rooting if u r using anu cpu apps like setcpu or cputuner for battery saving it will des... moreHahaha Thanks for the Advice Bud, Im not much of a Geek..i dont like to play with all the frequency and all..too alienish for me.
Ive little experience with the rooting. I have used No Frill Cpu Earlier too...So im jus gonna use it to lower the cpu specs dats all.
Wait guys, android one 2nd phase is comming in december. Google tied up with qualcomm, and qualcomm agreed to provided snapdragon chipsets to android one partners (htc, lenovo, asus, acer, alcatel, xolo, intex, micromax, karbonn, spice). Android one phase 2 is coming with snapdragon chipset and pure android from top brands like htc, asus. And motorola going to launch another 3 mobiles in christmas. So wait guys something big is coming in december.

firefox07, 02 Oct 2014hi sunil i wanted your frank view regarding battery life after updating V43,has it improved,I... morei didn't tried v41 directly installed v43 but as i know both version are same only.. and yeah battery is good. heating issue also reduced. it is worth to update v43 or v41.1 it is better enable auto brightness
SunilShetty, 02 Oct 2014you are always welcome buddy :)hi sunil
i wanted your frank view regarding battery life after updating V43,has it improved,Iam on V41.1 and battery life isn't that great even after using battery savers,iam also keeping screen brightness on 17%,despite this battery drains
Main thing is is it worth updating to V43 as till now it is not showing in OTA updates
I dont have much issue with RAM and heating of phone as I dont play games so phone behaves all right
I updated to V41.1 just 3 days back
pl reply ASAP
