This is a great phone! And the low price makes it awesome!
The battery in my 5yo Sony Ericsson Xperia phone (which still works fine) was dying so had to buy a new one. My first choice was a Sony M4 Aqua, but the dealer outlet (Challenger, Singapore) didn't have it. Next choice was the promo Asus Zenphone 2, they said all outlets had no stock. The only mid/low price phone available was the Redmi Note 2. Its list price was cheaper than the Zenphone promo price!
Updated to MIUI Global 7.2 (thanks, Radeyal!) & removed/disabled unwanted apps/tools.
The phone itself feels nice to handle & use, sleek & elegant. UI is fairly intuitive. Lollipop is fine for me for now. Touch response is very crisp.
Been using it for a week now. Working beautifully so far. Still early days but I have a good feeling about this phone.
Battery lasts 1.5 days with my normal usage: mainly messaging & internet browsing, camera & 1 or 2 basic apps. I played YT music videos for 6 hours & there was absolutely no heat problem, just slight extra warmth as compared to normal. Purely in standby mode, battery showed 100% for more than an hour.
I could easily transfer files from a Windows Phone & from my laptop using BT w/o any problems.
The best thing for me is the OTG, since I need to use files/folders from my laptop when I am out. Now I don't have to carry heavy, bulky items. Alternatively, i can insert an external SD card & transfer files to there. (Had a Samsung Note 10 with OTG but after just 2 months' use, rapidly flashing lines appeared on the screen & got worse over time & also it's heavy to carry.)
I am quite careful with carrying & handling my phones & very, very rarely drop them. Since this model does not have Gorilla glass, maybe users should handle their phones a little more carefully.
I am so far very happy with this amazing phone. :-D

I really dont know how it can be different
Pankaj, 18 Mar 2016Is it support OTG feature? Yes the Redmi Note 2 supports USB OTG without the need of modifications. The native file manager will also play just fine with a USB OTG device. Mine has a terrible battery life, but I am awaiting a replacement battery I ordered. Cannot confirm if this is a manufacturer defect or just mine since I bought it second hand

But the theme shortcut is still there.. There must be something wrong with yours
AnonD-81460, 26 Mar 2016how to remove the camera shortcut from the lockscreen?Remove camera shortcut: change the theme.. Some themes not using camera shortcut on lock screen.
Saving battery tips. If you are using global stable rom already then you are on the right path yo save battery.. Nothing else we can do, only use performance mode when necessary.
So now we cannot change the theme? Haha i will not install the update then..
Just notice, the THEME icon was disappeared. Now, there's no icon for that to customize the theme of the home screen and icons. I just updated to the newest 220.127.116.11 (LHMMIDA) MIUI GLOBAL 7.2 STABLE. Any idea?

The dual sim card seems to be useless in Japan since there is no more 2G in japan. I tried my 3G sim + 4G(LTE data only)sim, 3G on slot 1 since it is for voice call and 4G on slot 2, only the 3G sim worked. Both sims use docomo frequency (facility). I tried to search for info on the internet and i read on one of the sites i visited that 2 sim phones only work if the sims are 2G +3G or 2G + 4G or 2G + 2G.
