Oh, pls. MIUI is really overrated. Xiaomi's phones themselves are good phones w/ cheap price, that I admit. I own Redmi 2 8gb since its launching more than 2 years ago. Decent chipset, enough for daily use, not for gamers and I'm not one. Great camera, decent display with poor sunlight legibility. Decent battery, lasting half a day for moderate use, but I own power bank, so it's no biggie. Great speaker and sound quality. The only fatal flaw is miui. Everything about miui is great tbh, except its multitasking. My gosh, most of the time I hold an app in background n go to home/another app even for just a moment, when I'm back opening it again it reloads/restarts.
And another fatal flaw of xiaomi phones, including Redmi 2 is HEAT. Sure during normal use - call, chat, browse - its temperature is still in comfortable zone, around 39-42 deg C. But for streaming long videos from browser/ a bit of light gaming/ recording video for only a few minutes, it starts being an uncomfortable 45 deg C and more. My place's temperature at noon is around 32-34 deg C for reference. If u live in cooler area, u might get away from Xiaomi's heating plague. My mom's old samsung phone's temperature is always top at 40 deg C, I never feel heat from that oldie. Maybe because nowadays phones use more powerful chipset, so they generate more heat? Who knows. I dunno about the "normal" phone's temperature nowadays, as I don't frequently change my phone, unless it's completely broken. But i still hold on my opinion, 45 deg C is already uncomfortable in my hand, and more uncomfortable on my ear during call.

There is something wrong with this phone while using both 4G enabled SIM of Airtel and Jio network. My phone got dead also my nafew's phone first lost 4G network means only 3G and 2G available then complete SIM data network. Only internet can be used by wifi only. I tried to switched network from JIO to Airtel and vice versa, mobile lost both network and contineus to change state "No sim" to "emegency calls only" for 10 minutes. I removed both sim card and restarted but phone did not start. Phone is heating abnormally near camera where processors is situated. Either this software bug or network conflict between Airtel and Jio. Since no such situation is taking place with Jio and Vodafone.
