Actually on Global ROM, this phone feel as capable and it can.
I actually only experience serious heat if I gaming on high 3D game, on other lower demanding activity actually barely feel any heat.
It actually perform no lag than other so called high end phone on long term usage, with installation full of apps and store photo inside the phone. (My friend Samsung S5 and HTC M10 getting so much pronounce lag and heat, even only just install some basic chatting, casual game and social media apps only.) It just feel a bit slower on apps launching and navigation, but never to a lag state, where phone will hang for a while to perform something. Of course, all those thanks to the latest ROM, earlier ROM indeed lag.
The only minus are it's screen color, unimpressive screen viewing angle, it's average camera, it's low speaker phone loudness, under average build quality, slow Micro SD read, and average battery life.
But other than that, it is perfectly usable, acceptable as just priced a fraction of those expensive phone.
A more worth upgrade will be Redmi Note 3 Pro 16GB version with Snapdragon 650, which improve almost all these shortcoming, and priced so not much expensive than this.

AnonD-555292, 01 Jul 2016how can i flash miui 8 in my redmi note 2 pls help
Don't understand when one want to flashing and later complain of problems.
Flashing is best let the pro do it. As flashing may make the phone unstable, if error.
You can do update by going --> Setting --> About phone; and click on "Update" (with wifi on)
Just updated to MIUI version 220.127.116.11
AnonD-553996, 28 Jun 2016after used this phone for few months too, so lets agree to disagree lol 1. yes, coz of proc... moreI agree 100% but what about the new rom because i didn't receive the update message.... So is there any other way to update it?
utc, 29 Jun 2016My ph doesn't include otg function in ph setting.real otg supported phons include otg configur... moreThere is an Private Folder in the Redmi Note 2.
Open the Explorer app. On top of the 3 icons, namely, Videos, Docs, Images;
Then put your finger and scroll downwards.
You can select password, pattern, pin, in order to open the Private folder.
There is a safety, once you are out of the private folder, you need to do the same way to open the Private folder. Samsung is not safe, as the Private folder always remain as open.

You need to get those usb cable to macro usb (same as charger input).
Turn on the screen (meaning not in lock screen mode).
Insert the cable into the phone charger port.
There are also USB flash drive, where on 1 side is USB port and the other side phone USB.
When you have slot in, there is this message that to remove, press the message, as just like computer that to click to remove flash drive.
As i say again, there is no setting as it is like PC, just slot in the phone charger macro USB.

Onion, 25 Jun 2016After using it for few months.. this is my experience with this phone
1. Battery life is CR... moreafter used this phone for few months too, so lets agree to disagree lol
1. yes, coz of processor heliox10 is so powerfull makes phone so fast for gaming etc but consume so much battery live.
its depend how you use this phone, if we going just for online without gaming its reach 5-6 hours screen on time, which mean its really good due to heliox10 processor on it.
and don't forget to flash your room with miui 8 room coz this room is very good in battery life.
2. never got it. which room are you use lol? maybe you never flashing to good room, and still using the first room when you buy it lol
3. this one is just normal, whatever phone you use for gaming you will find heating problem, except when you buy the samsung galaxy s7 or s6 and cost much more money than this phone.
and heating its not big problem, just buying the jelly case and heat will not that much at the backphone.
4 - 8 never got lag and always stable, find some bug but its ok for me, not annoy me that much, and if you find lag with this phone, think about the price off this phone comparing to another smartphone model. and what will they offer you? so much laggyyyyyyyy phone with 150 $ price. want the fast one in samsung and LG brand? buy about 300 $ price lol.
9. this is true, the quality of camera I would say about 70, although with 13mp lol, but for video recorder is good or 90 due to light you got for record place.
so, buy this phone for performance you hope at cheapest price, dont hope for best camera or long battery life, coz there is another smartphone at this price and better from this phone such meizu m2 note, redmi 3 or redmi 3 pro, alcatel flash two, lg g2 mini for good camera.
but if you are a gaming one and have little money in pocket lol, go for this phone ^_^
and dont ever forget to flash your room after you buy this phone, go to youtube or xda forum to get tutorial overthere, cause without flashing, its almost cause your redmi note 2 heat and draining battery life, and so much add and unused android program.
