    Vijay, South Africa. 25 January 2017

    Great phone and well worth it for the price. I love the MIUI interface and its functionality which is much better than most of the well know brands. The phone does lag a bit with multiple apps opened and the battery life isn't the best. But great product overall.

    Helgard, South Africa. 1 November 2016

    Easy to use and setup, Lots of software available.
    Great value for money product.

    Mohammed Waseem, South Africa. 11 November 2016

    Awesome awesome device. Xiaomi is the next big brand. If you're looking around for a device at around this price point forget about the others and buy this now. You really won't go wrong :)

    Tim, South Africa. 25 December 2016

    Does the job. The pro is worth the extra bucks, but this is still amazing value for money

    Mohammed, South Africa. 11 January 2017

    Xiaomi is the future. It is better specced and has the same quality as the expensive brand names at less than half the price.

    Jules, South Africa. 13 November 2016

    Very good budget phone.

    Sakhile, South Africa. 24 October 2016

    Excellent product!

    Riaan, South Africa. 20 October 2016

    Better specification at a much cheaper price than Samsung phones. And it comes with a 3-year warranty.

    Kendall, South Africa. 25 October 2016

    This phone has only got 1GB RAM and 8GB Disk but if you are not a heavy user it is fantastic bang for the buck!
    Xiaomi do a great job at updating their phones regularly so there are no worries about security bugs and the OS is really intuitive and user-friendly. It uses MIUI which is a customised version of Android and has the look and feel of an Apple phone, ie. polished and professional. But being Android, this means it is suitable for novices and techies alike. I bought the Pro version of this phone and liked it so much I bought this model for my wife. We love the high-quality pictures that it takes and the really long list of nifty features. Call quality is better than average too. I am a Xiaomi convert since getting the Redmi 2. Forget Apple's locked-down environment and Samsung's high prices, Xiaomi has got it right and it's not surprising that they are becoming more and more popular worldwide, and not just in China and India.

    Great Entry Level, South Africa. 7 December 2016

    Priced well below its competitors, this entry level device provides great functionality through MIUI8.

    Its processor handles most tasks well, with heavy app switching taking a knock on the 1gb of RAM.

    Sunlight legibility is well above what's been reported in some reviews online and the auto brightness works relatively well.

    Battery life is brilliant when working off one sim card on LTE. Even when I push it to try and get the battery to drain, I get a solid 4 hours of screen on time - noting that the restricting RAM makes it difficult to test. There is also battery life optimization tool.

    Liseli, South Africa. 19 November 2016

    Good quality phone for the price. No complaints here!

    BERNADENE, South Africa. 15 December 2016

    This phone is very slow. I have it for a month now and I am not very happy with the slow performance.

    Joel, South Africa. 27 October 2016

    very nice and user freindly

    goolam, South Africa. 19 October 2016

    Awesome phone but no signal no matter what. Now I have to take a brand new phone to get roms installed in order to be able to use South African networks..not worth the trouble but its too late now

    KG, South Africa. 20 January 2017

    Beauty on the outside and super smart on the inside. The Redmi 2 is a bargain at any price.

    Taufeeq, South Africa. 4 December 2016

    Great phone.responds fast. Quality build . Good value for money.

    Maryann, South Africa. 7 December 2016

    I'm very happy with this phone. Its a very good phone. I know I made a mighty fine choice!

    JETARA, South Africa. 4 December 2016

    pleasantly surprised by the functionality of this phone. absolutely love it!!!

    Ria, South Africa. 4 December 2016

    Just a really great phone, good value for money. MIUI is pretty slick, no complaints at all.
