Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime

Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime review
Source: Androidbeat English version
The Redmi 2 Prime comes with a 2200mAh removable battery, which is easily able to power the device through a day of heavy usage. I constantly managed to get more than 5 hours of screen-on time on the Prime over a period of 1.5 days on 3G/4G network. On light usage, I was able to make the phone last through one whole weekend plus the Monday that followed. Keep in mind that this was with 2 Gmail accounts syncing in the background and a messaging clients like WhatsApp, Hangouts and Telegram running in the background.

With the older Xiaomi Redmi 2 model with less RAM and storage falling in price by Rs. 1,000, the new Redmi 2 Prime has taken its spot at Rs. 6,999. That gives Xiaomi two new ways to fight the competition, which is by no means standing still. If you think you can get by with the specs of the older model, you can save a bit of money and still get a very polished product. On the other hand, if the extra money isn't a deterrent, you'll find the Redmi 2 Prime more suitable for heavier multitasking even a few years down the line.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
