I own this phone. Great phone, responsive and absolutely no lag at all.
My phone is 2015051, not rooted (yet), ROM is 126.96.36.199 (miui6 ) and the only problem is :
poor battery life
I have Redmi 2 and mi4i (indonesian market) and they perform far more better on battery life compare to this chinese Redmi Note 2.
I got the phone from a friend of mine who was travelling to china last week and I have been using this phone for 3 days and I feel that Xiaomi need to improve the battery life for this great smartphone.
Karthikeyan M, 17 Sep 2015Not much, 32 GB & 2.2 ghz in Prime versus 16gb 2 ghz in normal versionNo dear there is another major difference in Note 2 prime version and standard version.
GPU in 2.2 GHz, 32 GB prime verion is more faster than the standard 2 GHz, 16GB version.
I think 700 MHz as compared to 550 MHz.
Please correct me if i am wrong.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2015Your review is quite revealing. May I ask a few things starting with the MIUI 7, how can one g... more2 hrs for 3000+mAh battery is pretty good, you just compare with a z3c native charger which takes more than 3 hrs to 100% and the capacity is only 2600mAh (although it actually charges fast up to 90% and gets slowed down to prevent overcharging).

Battery life sucks... I updated to miui 7. But still the issue is same.
Got my Hongmi (redrice) note 2 today, and so far so good, a 32GB unit with a 2.2 octa core CPU. This isn't my first mi phone, and still collecting this little monsters because they never fails to provide me the things that i needed in a phone, speed and performance, appearance, durability cost and etc.. As a foreigner living here in China, i got to enjoy this stuff even though the locals, (chinese) thinks i am crazy for patronizing the brand.. Anyways, Generally this redmi note 2 is one of a kind, compared with it's predecessor (Xiaomi RedRice Note 1) this phone got a lot of improvement, thinner, better looks, display resolution and among other things, the photo quality is presentable enough, speakers/sound isn't that loud as compare it's predecessor but still can't say it's bad. And one other thing, this Quick Batt/power recharging stuff is quite accurate..
There is no fast charging with this phone whatsoever... but the performance is awesome so far, got 48k on antutu, but no fast charging
