Again, get your expectation right.
If you think a budget phone like this one going to beat the high end or the midrange phone the same time this phone being release, this is not going to happen.
However, there is always newer version, with upgraded spec.
Still remember the 1st Samsung/HTC/Sony/LG android smartphone that come out to the market around 7 years ago? Even those cost much more than this, is actually much inferior to this phone. Things do improve every year, and it seems no point for making an unfair comparison.
So, for those who can pay, just get the most expensive Samsung/Huawei/LG/HTC/Oneplus phones.

Steven W, 05 Nov 2017Can i update Redmi Note 2 to Miui 8 or even 9?Yes, I current have mine Redmi Note 2 running on MIUI 9 Global ROM 7.10.19. I love this phone. I just ordered the a new Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. I can't wait to try it out.
I am using this phone and it works great, but the battery life is very bad (about 2:30h of on screen). I just change from chinese rom to global rom and it drains super fast (about 2h of on screen).

With such low price, actually nothing can be compared about, but it is a proper usable budget phone, which still has OS updates until today. For me, it is a lag free experience on this phone (actually much faster or equally fast with comparable high end phone). Only big issue is the poor battery life.
Well, despite of poor battery life, still work well till today.
Great little smartphone for backup purpose.
Get used to powerbank and always find charger for charging.
Installed in car charger for charging convenience.

Nothing can be done, upgrade to Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is the only choice, that phone has much longer battery life, with a very power saving processor, and a moderate performance to match.
If don't want to upgrade, buy spare battery or power bank seems is the only solution.

Before format, try backup those stuff in the card to computer.
Redmi Note 2 actually supports 64GB external class 10 SD card. Just make sure the card is successfully FAT32 formatted and it can be recognized by the phone. As Win7 can't do the FAT32 trick, try some freeware.
