Best phone ever at 6K pricing...Just recieved my phone on the 12th have tested it extensively since the past 3 days now and writing this review...
Camera: Awesome front and back camera can even put the Samsung and HTC to shame..even the lowlight imaging is kickass..
Battery:Good battery backup lasted for the whole day from 8am to 7:30pm even though was connected to the wifi the whole day yes but without gaming when played some highend games on it like asphalt 8 the battery lasted for 6hrs thats still better compared to other phones.
OS:Have always been a big fan of MIUI used to install their custom roms on my htc and Samsung phones bcoz they have the best ever user interface however the experience of using it in the original MI phones was just great done need to install any battery saving apps,data calculators,antivirus coz the phone OS has it all try it out guys you will love it.
Screen:Even at a price tag of 6k they have offered an HD screen and it does not disappoint you can view ur images or movies from all angles
In regards to the heating issues that everyone is taking about its not heating the phone just gets warm initially when you first switch on the phone when it does the first miui update and that only happened the first day apart from that it got a little warm when i tried playing asphalt8 but nothing was alarming this commonly happens with other handsets aswell so people are just exaggerating the heating issue.
Overall its a great phone and worth a buy at the given price no other comapany is offering such great specifications at this price tag yes the indian companies can but then with the Mediatek processors and not with the premium snapdragons which this phone does.
All the best guys for the 16th sept sale
Guys, I got this mobile from Flipkart on the first day of its sale... Got it 10 days back.
01) 4.7" screen with a smooth touch unlike (Cheaper Moto series)
02) Really fast booting and faster processing (Except some apps).
03) Can play high end games without any lag (Of course, it will heat up).
04) Camera is (Have not much to tell because you guys already read the camera performance and clarity) Awesome.
05) Reasonable internet speed.
06) Read/Write data is fast.
07) Battery consumption is good. (You be on Wi-Fi, battery drains fast) as simple as that.
08) MIUI is good and has its uniqueness. (Guys who are complaining about the UI should complain about IOS) Sorry, all UI's can't be the same.
01) Heats up so fast.
02) Can't install the apps into SD card unless you root the mobile.
03) Its price (Rs- 5999). (Should have been atleast Rs-20,000 because all are comparing this mobile with S3's and HTC desires).
STILL 8-3=5... So i'll give 5 stars :)
Guys if you want really high end phones, go for Galaxy's or Desire's or IOS's or experia's or Nexus's or make one with your own requirements.
You can't get all the features within 5,999 (Not even in 10,000's)
Conclusion: For Rs- 5,999, not any other mobile can beat this mobile in performance or specifications. Totally worth it (More than worth it).
Hope this was Helpful :)
can anybody please tell me that, is there any apps to optimize the RAM , It is showing 870MB RAM totally, and it is using 700MB already by default. I already used some apps like Startup manager to close some startup programs, even it is taking almost 500 Mb.
please suggest any best earphones for redmi 1s, except Mi headset.
Thanks in advance...

AnonD-299420, 15 Sep 2014guys, xiaomi is cheating with us.. there is 873MB of ram in redmi 1s, i baught it from flipkar... moreYou know what this is my personal experience, you take any phone people criticise a lot when it is launched but when time passes by. The very person starts praising it. My redmi 1s is totally fine. It is not just the camera quality you have mentioned. What about all sensors, removable battery, flash, 4.7inch display 300+ppi, solid look, on the go support, quad core.
This is my first Android phone and I know my decision can never be wrong.
3 year back I bought Nokia c2_00 it's still working fine but when it was launched people gave it so much -ve review..
Most of the reviewer you see here they are either fake or impatient. Don't let them mislead you.
What we should be most concerned with is the output. Why should one be worried about what fertiliser was used when fruit is sweet harmless and nutritious.
in this price its gud...
the only problem is battery (heat and lasting)
in my redmi 1s,cpu model shows quad core.arm v7processor.(vfp v4,neon).it heats up for normal use mean just scrolling the screen.i run antutu benchmark,it scored 20515.is der any solution to heat problem?plz reply.tnks

.purchase power bank which can be compatible with many devices rather than investing in battery

rs, 15 Sep 2014Yes, I did not notice any heating issue in 24 hours I am using the phone.No heating..people who are complaining must have not updated there device to 36.0 ROM or playing high end games continuously or received faulty piece...its heavy CPU so definitely going to heat up like laptop does...may be future updated solve this

guys, xiaomi is cheating with us.. there is 873MB of ram in redmi 1s, i baught it from flipkart flash sale. i did this and that and what not to buy this phone and it turned out to be a 873mb phone- a crap phone. cheating..
music player and games dont run simultaneously.
u get to use 4 to 5 gigs out of 8gb.
apps wont move or installs automaticaly on sd card, u need to root and install third party app.
installed asphalt 8, airborne.. a race never completes. game closes itself in middle of race any time it likes. frustrating.
dont buy this if u love performance.
specification on paper is mind blowing but performance is not.
moto e is better if u can compromise on camera.
and camera in redmi 1s is mind blowing both front and rear. but when u want to use heavy games and apps like asphalt it crashes.
Now I am not sure if it has MSM8226 or 8228 after reading this.
This says heating problem is due to MSM8226.
MSM8226 official speed is 1.2Ghz but they overclocked it to 1.6Ghz which causing extra heat.
More info here
I don't care about cpu.
I will just enjoy whatever i got in 6000
