Redmi note 2 is really value for money. Perfect size.... very small for a 5.5 inch fit in your pocket very nicely. Helio x10 works flawlessly no heating. Perfect resolution. Only flaws battery really drain very very fast, if you factor in that the battery is a 3000mha, then either xiaomi is lying or they simply just have lot to learn about power management. You can only view the camera output on the phone, once you try to zoom in the result becomes very noisy, but i dont care because its not even a $200 phone.... hopefully the stable miui 7will cure the battery draining.
First get Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Root, Rom, Add Google Service, TWRP Recovery.
Remove bloatwares (Android Live Wallpapers
Browser (use a replacement app, like Chrome)
Google Pinyin Input (for those who don't type in Chinese)
Live Wallpaper Picker
Mail (use a replacement app, like Gmail or Inbox)
Magic Smoke Wallpapers
Music Visualization Wallpapers
A Chinese App (with an Orange/Green location symbol icon)
Another Chinese App (with the Mi logo under a roof)
Also safe to remove: Mi Browser, mail etc if you use replacement apps)
Go SMS Pro
battery life repair
ES file explorer
google play services
MX player pro
power cam for videos
wondershare mobile go

andy, 22 Oct 2015Cheap nice phones except heating problem,battery draining,no fast charge,virus and advertiseme... moreCan you tell me what kind of virus it was / how you found it? Some sellers flash in custom roms (eg to add google play) that have them - not just for this phone. I installed a miui7 rom right away from xiaomi.eu (debloated, multilang version) and have none of the issues you mentioned.

Cheap nice phones except heating problem,battery draining,no fast charge,virus and advertisement attack on its original OS. What i say is true try it yourself. I have got the redmi note 2 prime version
great phone no minus only baterai drain maybe can slove next update patch os
I broke my lenovo k3 note, just bought a redmi note2 prime so I can compare these based on first hand experience. Battery life is similar (both good, didn't have drain issues on any of them). Screen quality, and performance is definitely better on the redmi note 2. I also prefer the xiaomi rom/os, this is subjective though. The rounded shape the redmi makes it feel smaller and it is actually easier to pocket. Feels like an upgrade on most fronts imo.
Bought redmi note 2 from grey importer (malaysia, onegadjet)
The original rom that comes with the phone is bad (miui 6). Flashed miui 7 from miui.eu, and im very happy with my phone now.
Over 5hrs SOT, no bloatware, and no problem with google services.
I suggest u guys do the same as well, lastest version of miui 7 is really really good.
can this smartphone support high end gaming like modern combat 5 ,gta san andreas And if this phone does not support high graphics games Please suggest me a good gaming phone.
Hi, guys, have you figured out the battery problem? Is it because of Lollipop, the custom rom, display brightness, background proceses or what? Does MIUI 7 solve the battery problem or there's no change from MIUI6? How to stop background processes?
How much free RAM is left by the OS?
Do you have a creaking back panel? (some ppl had this complaint)
This phone has no quick charge.The processors itself is only good in an advertisement.You guys will encounter slow browsing,heating,battery drainage,virus(on fun weather etc)its operating system consist of tons of virus so don't use credit cards.PLease beware2.
Eri kurniawan, 21 Oct 2015Is this phone support google cardboard?Yes , but first you need to instal the google framework services first before the device gets compatible with google play
Samsung note 3 will beat any of these Chinese phones and is cheaper or similar price. And is Samsung. Will be compatible with everything and anything.
hi guys, would someone tell me which is better?
redmi note2 / Lenovo p70/ meizu m1 note
if possible can u guys tell why the model is better?
your feedback is appreciated...
Guys, after downloading and installing the MIUI 6 back into this phone, the battery life has improved alooooooot! forget about the MIUI 7 Developer Rom right now. It consumers too much batter life for no reason.
