I bought REDMI 2 (White) in April 2015. I handled it properly with a limited use for calls and games. Just few days back while playing a video (recorded in the hand set) it got suddenly heating up and its screen gone with a burning smell.
The heating effect was such a strong that I got afraid of battery burst. Really, it was so scaring that kept phone away from me for one hr.
When I approached REDMI service center at Eternity Mall, the service personal was treating every body like a beggar. First they threatened me while taking handset that if they will find some internal damages (Which I can not see) it will be out of warranty and chargeable. Again, if I will not willing to get it repaired, the re assembly charges will be Rs. 340. It will take ten working days or more to repair the phone.
I am really surprise to see quality & service of a Chinese product.
Any buyer please be conscious before buying this Chinese product and availing their services.
Note.: For similar problem Samsung service take 2-3 (max.) working days to repair within warranty
I DAILY READ COMMENT ABOUT BATTERY BACKUP AND CAMERA.
I am using this phone since April.
1. Battery backup...yes battery backup...
2.Camera...better than my galaxy grand...both have 8Mp camera.
3.Sound...use samsung headset and listen...much better than galaxy grand.
4.Inbuilt privacy app...no need to download any other app.
5.Almost all type of video formats supported.
1.Poor Network retention. If signal becomes bit low...it switches to 2g mode immediately and hard to return to 3g or 4g mode.
2.Touch malfunction during charging.
3. Earpiece is not loud and clear during call.

Junaid Mansuri, 20 Aug 2015Hi friends, Junaid here from Mumbai from last one week i am searching best mobile under 7k ... moreIt is a very good phone. Don't comment without owning this phone. It heats like hell, battery charge done thrice daily. Apps and camera crashed often, yet this is a good phone not because I say but because I'm made to say...for monetary benefits.
To hide videos and pics without password...follow these steps...open gallery...long press the pic or video...see bottom line...press option hide.
now the selected picture or video is hidden. to unhide go to settings...gallery...unhide.
but this method will not hide in file explorer.
so it is advised to lock the file explorer as mentioned in previous post.

Sifat, 21 Aug 2015what is best between the Redmi 2 and Redmi 2 prime.....Note 4G is not a bad choice either.
china will remain china i prefer lumia 535 i have both the phones
The phone is pretty good. Camera is wonderful (you have to set it to High quality for both front and back camera to get the best results). Battery life was a mess until I discovered the reason why. Media server on this device has a problem with MKV files so if you have them on the device delete them or rename them to MP4 or put a .nomedia file into folders containing MKV files.
Battery life is good now
