In a nutshell this Redmi Note is a winner, very good value-for-money phablet and am loving it more and more as the days pass by of constant use (have had it for around 2 weeks, the 2 GB version w/ 1.7 GHz speed octacore). Got it in the Philippines from a cell shop, a bit more expensive than its quoted price but still happy with the purchase. Comparing it to my old cell (HTC Sensation 4.3") the screen seemed huge and refreshingly sharp & crisp, colors are vibrant and vivid and watching movies on it is a joy with an HD-like presentation. Sound is fine but would have preferred it to be coming out from the front and not at the back. The phone's size and weight is no problem for me, just right and it can easily slid onto my pant's pockets. Build-quality is alright and it doesn't seem to feel like a budget phone at all; I was able to acquire an original Xiaomi leather flip case (black) which fit like a glove. Performance is good, 3G signal is strong (and so is its hotspot) and loading time is quite fast with little waiting time. I'm using both SIM slots without a hitch. The MIUI interface is great, much better than Samsung (having previously owned a Galaxy Duos) and the screen's look & feel is very similar to iPhone. With a recent MIUI upgrade, I'm thankfully able to store camera pics, videos and mp3's to the external micro SD card which can go up to 32 GB. Can't think much to complain about this phone given its consumer-friendly price and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a decent, enjoyable, and well-performing phone to use at a price that won't break the bank. Kudos to Xiaomi for the Redmi Note, it sure is a winner in my book!
