best phone in its price segment. Albeit, some R&D is necessary to make it better.
just flash it with cm right after it falls in ur hands. there's no other way of stopping the heat generation. the alternative wud b to install ota that xiomi has released but personally i'd go for flashing. so by now u'll b seeing considering amount of drop in heat, after going either way. if u still want it to drop, u need a under-clocking tweak. usually all the c.m. roms come with superuser permissions. so install no frills cpu app n lower the proc freq to 1.2 to 1 ghz. thers also a term called governor which affects the cpu using the battery juice but for the time being, n to keep it simple, just stick with lowering the freq. off course, u'll b inviting some lags while playing resource hungry games (possibly 1080p vids) but if u not into that, under-clocking wud do u some serious good as ther r no visible lags when playing normal media (up to 720p), or using the phone. ( and even if they r visible in some apps, chances r u wont b giving them attention after seeing the improvements in battery performance ) another handy tweak wud b installing app called greenify n hibernating all the unnecessary apps with it so that they wont run in background n keep cpu awake. this is the main reason for battery drain n heat. once again this trick is based on superuser permissions as installing greenify on a non superuser (unrooted) phone will turn out to b a not much of a pleasing experience. OR u can just wait for the new cm updates or possibly new roms based on lollipop or update in miui if u r sticking with stock settings. waiting wont take long, i guess , coz I've heard xiomi is going to release its kernel in open source. ( this release might get delayed as xiomi is currently busy facing their patent ordeal. ) once this happens, the devs will hav complete control over their mods n we'll b able to see so many improvements on ram , proc n battery fronts. till then, just hold tight n stop complaing abt the overheat n lagging issues, coz its not the phone ... its the way u use it. coz even if xiomi has messed up in embedding their ui into the phone instead of giving pure android, i feel its their right to do so. but at the same time they have given the user the permission to flash the device with custom roms by keeping the warranty intact. this has to be appreciated. just go to xda forum n read all there is to read about redmi 1s, do some diggings, choose ur custom rom, flash it in ur mobile n et voila. u hav a 6k phone working on par with 12 to 14k phones. what else u want ???﻿ been using the handset for a week now, n i feel this marvelous piece of engineering is going to stay with me for a quite some time.

Excellent phone for such a low price. Super fine screen. Good call quality. Overall value for money.
I bought this device 2 weeks ago. It worth more than what we paid for. It has got all, what a flagship phone is having. Call voice & earpiece volume are excellent.
Hai Dear All,
I am from Kerala, India. I have a plan to gift this mobile to my husband for his birthday. I would like to know whether it is possible to read MALAYALAM(language of Kerala)/other Indian fonts while we check our messages in Whatsapp and Facebook. Because it is not possible with my Alcatel Idol X+ and it is possible with LG G2.
Kindly give a detailed replay at the earliest.
Thanking you in advance
