    Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 16GB LTE Smartphone - Grey

    Today's the youngest we will ever be

    Being young is not about age, it's about believing in your dreams and the power to change the world. To us, the Redmi series is exactly that - uncompromising flagship performance coupled with sleek and minimal design. In fact, Redmi Note 2 combines a powerful processor, a PDAF fast focusing camera, dual-channel RAM and several features worthy of flagship smartphones. We hope it inspires you to achieve more and to always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.

    13MP rear camera, 0.1s Phase Detection Autofocus

    Life isn't perfect, but it has perfect moments. A good camera should make capturing them as easy as possible. It starts with a quality camera, which has Samsung as one of our key suppliers. After rigorous testing, we discovered that Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF), typically found in professional DSLR cameras, shoots faster because it simulates the human eye when focusing on objects, shortening focus time from 1s to 0.1s

    Actively adjusts for night and day

    Redmi Note 2's display is optimized especially for the young and active. When hiking under strong sunlight, Sunlight Display intelligently adjusts contrasts for each pixel in real time to improve readability. When watching your favorite TV shows at night, Night Display dims brightness down to a comfortable level. Reading Mode reduces blue light emissions and prevents eye strain, which is great for reading up on study notes.

    Redmi Note 2 features a vivid 5.5" 1920 x 1080 FHD fully laminated display with a 1000:1 contrast ratio. It ’s also a display that can do so much more.

    4G Dual SIM and the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi

    We can't survive without friends or the Internet. 
    Redmi Note 2 helps you stay connected round the clock with two SIM slots, both with 4G support. It also boasts the latest dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard for ultra-fast connections when you stream, download and game.

    High capacity 3060mAh (typ) replaceable battery

    Get more done on a high capacity 3060mAh (typ) battery. Combined with several MIUI power saving features, Redmi Note 2 offers up to 120 hours on standby. So when you're done WhatsApping, Snapchatting and Instagramming at the end of the day, you're still left with battery to spare. The battery has fast charging technology and is removable, so you can take an extra pack for the long road ahead.

    Runs MIUI 7, yours by design

    Loved by over 150 million users globally, MIUI, our playful and highly customizable Android operating system gets even more personal with MIUI 7. Choose from 4 default beautiful, individualized UI designs: Rosé, High Life, Pink Blush and Ocean Breeze. This is on top of thousands of themes available, thanks to our community of talented designers. MIUI 7 also has a faster response time and less power consumption. New features like Baby Album recognizes baby faces in your photos and groups them all together for easy viewing. How neat is that?

    South Africa

    Gustav, South Africa. 17 May 2016

    Hi all. Two months later, still loving this phone. So now that I have a cover, 5 stars!!!

    Leon, South Africa. 14 March 2016

    One week in and this is by far the best you can experience for the money. The phone runs super smooth, and battery life is impressive. The dual sim capabilities are much better than the Sony device I previously used.
    One of the cons is the lack of accessories. No cases or screen guards available (yet).
    Still, I can't see why you would spend 3 to 4 times the money for some of the other premium devices!

    Clive, South Africa. 1 June 2016

    This phone is a fantastic bargain. The only downside I can report so far is that covers and screen protectors are not readily available locally, but can be ordered from overseas. It also has quite aggressive power management enabled by default in the custom MIUI ROM, but this too can be rectified by going to Settings -> Additional Settings -> Battery -> Manage apps... -> Choose apps, and specifying the apps you want to run in the background (e.g. music players or fitness programs).

    The screen is great, battery life is very good (I easily get a day and a half with moderate usage) and performance is excellent. I bought this phone as a replacement to my ageing Samsung Note 2 and am completely happy. You're getting 80% of the performance and features of the latest flagships, for 30% of the price (and get a removable battery and SD card slot which is becoming hard to find). Highly recommended.

    Jan, South Africa. 23 March 2016

    Owning a Nexus 6 and needing a spare phone for work. This bargain of a phone truly sits down with the higher end phones. Saying that I still prefer my Nexus 6 but if I take into consideration the cost to value the Xiami Redmi Note 2 wins hands down every time. You won't regret buying one of these.

    Rabe, South Africa. 14 March 2016

    Great value for money. Delivers exactly what is promised for the price. Pity I can't find a compatible pouch or screen guard for it.

    Raees Ahmed, South Africa. 23 May 2016

    Great phone if you don't mind the size, the battery life could be better, it'll last a day comfortably with moderate use but hope it gets better with the Marshmallow update in June.

    Neill, South Africa. 2 March 2016

    Brilliant value for money phone.

    Brad, South Africa. 29 May 2016

    Great phone. more I pIay with it more featured I uncover. Loaded all my apps, banking, entertainment, social and shopping all running fine. good battery life. Just need accessories

    Aretha, South Africa. 31 May 2016

    Really great phone! I have only had it for a week but I am very happy with it for the price.
    No complaints at all!

    Jacobus, South Africa. 22 May 2016

    Absolutely fantastic value for money. I had to replace a stolen Samsung Note 5 that I'm still paying off, and having had this phone for a few days I probably won't ever spend that kind of money on a premium phone again.

    Some great features: dual SIM, FM radio, infrared remote, very smooth user interface arguably as good as my previous note 5, and other standard apps such as GPS and all wireless connectivity work perfectly.

    The battery is removable which is great since some may want to replace the factory-installed battery at the get go.

    No NFC. Haven't needed more RAM yet. Earphones work fine.

    David, South Africa. 24 April 2016

    Amazing phone! Fast and reliable. Not to mention how quick the camera focuses and snaps!

    Marelize, South Africa. 13 July 2016

    The best phone ever.

    Wessel, South Africa. 25 March 2016

    Cant say anything bad about a product that does more than promised.Really an amazing product.Performance,graphics and speed are tops.

    Matthew, South Africa. 23 September 2016

    Absolutely brilliant device. For the price no other smartphone comes close. You would expect to pay at lease R8000+ a device with these specifications

    Very quick and snappy
    User friendly
    Plenty of on board space + you can insert an SD card
    Duel 4G sim

    No screen protector or cover in box

    Eugene, South Africa. 23 May 2016

    Good quality phone and performers excellent.

    Laulene, South Africa. 20 May 2016

    This is an awesome phone! It is responsive and the usability is good!
    Value for money wise this is the best phone you can buy. I struggled to find accessories but i could order them on bid or buy (It just takes a while). While i am waiting for my bid or buy items the iPhone 6 plus pouch fits perfectly.

    Chenee, South Africa. 11 November 2016

    Love this phone. Always had a Samsung, but this one really surprised me and I think I might like it more...

    Horatius, South Africa. 10 July 2016

    Awesome device. I definitely recommend this product. There's just one thing though, the battery life is not that good,but then again, what device's battery life is??

    Arno, South Africa. 24 June 2016

    Hardware: The quality and spec is pretty awesome. Some speakers / headphones make noise and artifacts when plugged into the sound port, but all my headsets work, so it's tolerable.

    Software: You're either going to love or hate the MIUI interface that Xiaomi put over their Android. Personally, I hate it -- it tries too hard to be like iOS (not surprising, given that Xiaomi got their start in making knockoff iPhones) and it lacks stability and features I like.

    Solution: Install any one of a number of custom Android ROMs. Personally I run PAC-ROM right now.

    FOR MODDERS: There is as yet no Marshmallow (6.0.x) ROM for this phone that I could find. Obviously it's only a matter of time, but that's currently the case. (2016-06-24)

    Jaco, South Africa. 21 February 2016

    Got this phone after my Sony broke. Never looked back. Great phone for the price.

    Michael, South Africa. 21 April 2016

    Excellent phone, more than I expected for such a low price, I just wish I could find a flip cover for it.

    John Grobbelaar, South Africa. 16 September 2016

    Amazing high quality phone, battery drains a bit fast but phone runs very smooth. the ROM loaded on here is multi-language and play store is available unlike Chinese model.

    Overalls impressed and good buy, also I do not have temperature issues unlike some people reported on gsm arena.

    Jacques, South Africa. 21 May 2016

    Got this phone after using a Galaxy S6 for a year.

    First of all, you will not get a better bang for your buck.

    The full HD screen looks terrific and the colour reproduction is quite nice as well.

    It has a octa core processor which performs great. Gaming on this phone feels smooth and the phone never struggles.

    It feels great in your hand and the dual sim, expandable storage and removable battery is just awesome. Even though the max storage is only 32gb external. It still gives me more than my S6 had.

    Battery life is great. Last a day with se gaming and browsing reddit often.

    Paul, South Africa. 29 February 2016

    Awesome phone. Fantastic value for money.

    Mark, South Africa. 1 June 2016

    Very average phone. You pretty much get what you pay for. Suitable as a phone for your kids or a second phone for emergencies. Cannot synchronise to an exchange server and struggled to import contacts.

    Allister, South Africa. 21 May 2016

    If only the distributor sold the redmi note 3 as the note 2 is quite an old phone now. Especially in the tech product life cycles. However considering how overpriced everything is in South Africa, it's nice to be offered some change. You won't find better value for money in South Africa. Sure this isn't the best phone for the price if you live in a country which has many other choices but in South Africa this us by far the best value for money cellphone. It's large yes, but does everything surprisingly well for the price. Buttons aren't too cheap and overall feel doesn't feel too bad.

    Abdulla, South Africa. 18 May 2016

    I think its a great phone , considering all its features
    However , if they could do something about battery life , ear phones and phone cover , it would definitely get my 5 stars
    Final conclusion - great phone within a tight budget ! Go for it !

    Shawn, South Africa. 2 August 2016

    Good. Really good buy.

    Sebastien, South Africa. 27 July 2016

    Great phone for the money, easily matches the current flagship phones in terms of screen quality, battery life, performance and features. The MIUI interface takes some getting used to if you are used to stock Android, but it is very customisable and you can always replace the default launcher, which doesn't have an app drawer, with another one. It tries to emulate the iOS interface, so if you like that you will be right at home. It has very aggressive power and permissions management which can be a pain when you need apps to run in the background, but again this can again be managed on an app-by-app basis.

    Marthinus, South Africa. 29 February 2016

    Great Phone, will just have to import some cases, since there nothing available local.

    Dual Sim works great, and no issues with the phone so far.

    Nigel, South Africa. 7 June 2016

    I'm loving it, can check my ram usage at the press of a button and kill apps as needed to improve performance. It's a looker too

    Gerda, South Africa. 23 May 2016

    This phone is the best I had so far. Super easy to use. I read all the previous takealot reviews before I bought this phone and I have to agree this phone is great and the camera takes great pics!

    Phillip, South Africa. 13 April 2016

    Stellar phone for the price. Nice and fast with a decent screen. Battery life is average but improving with use. The only caveat is that the local avvessories are very limited.

    David, South Africa. 29 April 2016

    Best phone that you will ever find for the price.
    Have it for a week now. No problems at all!

    Maurits, South Africa. 24 June 2016

    Excellent phone. Quite a step up from my Samsung Galaxy S2. After importing screen protectors, cases, and spare batteries from China, I'm all set.

    Ian, South Africa. 25 July 2016

    Got the Phone after my Note 4 got sent in again for the 3rd time due to overheating and automatic restarting 10 times a day. This phone even though the camera and screen doesnt compare to the Note 4 this phone is better in all other ways, incl: battery, easy of use, great finctions, customization features, awesome UI that isnt bloayed as Touch Wiz. I am upgrading soon and I will be upgrading to the best Xiaomi I can possibly get. This phone changed my whole perspective

    Great phone overall, South Africa. 5 March 2016

    Great phone overall. The dispaly is not as reflective as they say it is. only downfall is the earphone jack is faulty. this seems to happen with Xiaomi devices on occasion. Appears to be software related. Apparently have legit Xiaomi earphones solves the problem, of which you get none in the box.

    Alex, South Africa. 20 April 2016

    Rally great smartphone. I have had it for 2 months now and love it. Excellent value for money. I struggled to find accessories.

    LUNGELO, South Africa. 21 March 2016

    Wow, so amazing. Fast network connection, sufficient RAM & storage. Sharp pictures, ... Just everything you need in a smartphone!

    Jo, South Africa. 8 October 2016

    Had the phone for a couple of months now, brilliant value for money.

    Fohn, South Africa. 2 June 2016

    Great Phone for someone that don't want to spend to much on a phone. Value for the money spent.

    Fawaaz, South Africa. 28 June 2016

    Received it promptly. I only had for a few days and it seems good thus far. Let's see how it performs In a few month

    Richardt, South Africa. 13 June 2016

    Pretty decent phone at a great price.

    Juanita, South Africa. 17 March 2016

    Great phone and exceptional value for money. It holds up well compared to other market leaders.

    Aris, South Africa. 20 October 2016

    Very responsive, no problems. Recommended.

    faez, South Africa. 10 May 2016

    Brilliant device and specs for the price, would like some accessories for sale though e.g covers, screen protectors and ear phones. other than that the device is perfect.

    Thys, South Africa. 7 November 2016

    Great phone, camera focus not so good.

    Amiel, South Africa. 10 October 2016

    Very happy so far! Mind blown that high-end smartphones cost so much when you can spend a quarter of the price and get the same performance. Battery life is good, even if you are an active user, charges very quickly. Front camera is good quality. Good fit in hand and comfortable to use. Love the MIUI software, smooth animations and very customisable. Just hoping that more Xiaomi products become available in SA, like screen protectors. Comes with all Google Apps already installed and setup of phone is very quick and easy. By far one of the best phones I've had, had the Hauwei Mate 7 before, Redmi Note 2 is a great, affordable replacement.

    Ivan, South Africa. 23 February 2016

    Really amazing phone that will make you wonder why anyone would spend twice as much for a Samsung or Apple smart phone.

    Bhavish, South Africa. 28 February 2016

    Probably the best phone you can buy in this price range. It acts and feels like a much more expensive phone and has been working flawlessly since I bought it..

    Joande , South Africa. 3 October 2016

    What an awesome phone. Well worth it!!!

    Amesh, South Africa. 3 June 2016

    Great phone! I have a RedMi Pro 2 as well. This phone is much faster than that. Definitely worth paying extra for this phone. Screen size is awesome. Would've liked a finger print reader, but for the price, that's not an issue. Only hassle is finding a cover and screen protector. All the guys with iPhones and Samsungs will actually be jealous of this phone, 'cos you've paid a 1/5 of the price of theirs and can still do everything that theirs can...

    Samuel, South Africa. 25 May 2016

    It is been a week, the phone is brilliant for the price and competes with the best, the UI is clean and lean yet with a lot of useful functionality. Have not installed performance hungry games to properly judge performance but it has handled all the other tasks thrown at it without breaking a sweat. I only wished it came with headphones like any standard phone, and a choice of covers

    Bianca, South Africa. 12 October 2016

    Amazing phone. Have had it for about 6 months and really cannot complain. Will never buy a Samsung again as this has been such a great phone. Only issue is getting covers for this phone. I like phone wallet cases so that I can store my cards and some notes.

    Kobus, South Africa. 14 March 2016

    This is a very good smartphone. The processing power is great and the battery to. I would recommend this phone to anyone.

    Senku , South Africa. 9 March 2016

    supper value for money. I like it. looking forward to purchase Note 3

    Hadley Nigel, South Africa. 30 May 2016

    Huawei Mate S [ Tempered Glass ] Screen Protector is the same size of the phone.

    Richard, South Africa. 19 February 2016

    I played with a friend's Xiaomi device and loved it, but I couldn't possibly purchase a device for which I cannot get a decent-fitting screen protector or cover.

    Kevin, South Africa. 2 September 2016

    if you don't buy this phone then you'll never experience brilliance and pure quality. I'm blown away.better than every other phone available world wide. looking forward to finally getting covers and screen protectors, but the wait will be worth it. Samsung and iPhone can't come close to this especially at a pricing point too

    Alexander, South Africa. 13 September 2016

    I love this device. Its fast and it has a good screen. The sound is good. It has all the gadgets. Best smartphone purchase i have ever made. 5 Fully satisfied Stars from me.

    Stephan, South Africa. 12 May 2016

    Impressive specifications for the price. The big battery, so far, has only required charging every second day. LTE browsing is pleasantly responsive, as is the phone in general.

    Receiving the "Mi-Band" with the phone was an unexpected bonus. Mi-Band is a basic activity and sleep monitor, which also has alarm and notifications features.

    Delighted with this purchase.

    Only down side is that no one has accessories for these phones yet.

    Douglas, South Africa. 15 April 2016

    This phone compares to the best in the market hauwei especially should take "note"......this redmi phone is going to kill big brands in SA!!!!!

    rickus, South Africa. 7 August 2016

    Great phone. Quick.battery charge quickly.just a pitty that you can't get earphone or cover for it. Great Service from take a lot!!!

    Jacob Pieter, South Africa. 24 October 2016

    Excellent value for money. Fairly good battery life. Great camera and screen.

    Bruce, South Africa. 3 June 2016

    Great phone, I have no idea why people spend the money they do on name brands. Buy this phone if you want a great deal!

    Marvyn, South Africa. 1 April 2016

    So far solid performing phone. Excellent in terms of value for money.

    Nasha, South Africa. 9 March 2016

    great performance,no bloatware,good quality screen awesome price

    logan, South Africa. 25 March 2016

    I love the phone, its fast, great graphics card, great display and a good camera ( The camera is great considering the price). For the phone, I give 5 stars, but I can't find a cover or screen protector, so I had to make my own. Please Takealot, get accessories !

    Hugo, South Africa. 12 June 2016

    I had an option of buying either the samsung J7 but then I discovered this amazing phone. Well worth every cent. the best features for this price range.

    William, South Africa. 27 May 2016

    It's a great phone for the price and Takealot's service was great as usual. My only complaint is that it is almost impossible to find accessories for the phone in South Africa.

    Oliver, South Africa. 25 June 2016

    Hands down the best phone I have used. Cost effective and replaceable in SA without breaking the bank due to theft etc

    Sihle Blessing, South Africa. 3 June 2016

    Best smart phone ive ever used

    Jay, South Africa. 27 February 2016

    Great camera, bloat free os. Fantastic value for money

    Roland, South Africa. 12 April 2016

    Easily outclasses everything else in this price bracket and comes with features you'd expect from much more expensive devices. Big full HD screen, snappy performance, LTE and a nice camera to boot. MiUI is also one of the nicest Android experiences out there and comes with built in themes. No bloatware either! All in all awesome value for money.

    Rajah, South Africa. 14 October 2016

    Excellent product for the price range. I strongly recommend this product. Great product quality.

    Leon, South Africa. 21 July 2016

    Very happy with the phone purchased on a special deal via Takealot. Snappy response, works flawlessly and very good value. It has dual sim slots, PLUS a SD-card memory slot (over and above the 16Gig on board memory). The 16meg camera is sharp and the apps all work great on the Mi platform. Battery life is reasonable and a full charge will last around 15 hours with heavy use and calling. Pity the SA agents do not ensure that the phone has screen-guards and phone covers available when launching....they seem to be the weak link here.

    Taryn, South Africa. 13 June 2016

    I bought this phone because my iPhone 6 was stolen and I couldn't bare the thought of paying 13k to replace it. This phone is 100 times better than my iPhone (and less than a quarter of the price) - I absolutely love it. The camera is amazing, functionality is simple and I'm getting very used to Android. All in all would highly recommend this device!

    Thomas, South Africa. 3 June 2016

    This is an excellent device considering the price you pay!
    - Excellent battery life.
    - 4G is awesome!
    - Screen is of high quality.
    - OS is clean with no bloatware.
    - Large storage.
    - Dual sims.
    - Good camera.
    - Excellent aesthetics.

    I feel like I have a really high end device. No I do have a really high end device!

    And as always Takealot delivered on time as promised!

    Archie, South Africa. 1 April 2016

    xiaomi is known as the apple of China and this is most certainly the case. the note 2 sports a mediatek Helio x10 octocore processor with 2Gb ddr3 ram. this phone is a beast and it can be compared to high end phones like the S5 and S6. this phone comes with a UI called miui over android which has updates over second week or so. it has a brilliant display and an infrared blaster to control your TV(download the correct app for your specific make) I would recommend this smartphone to mobile gamers over the mi 4 because it has a bigger screen and a better processor.

    Superb phone. Supper fast no lag on on any game I played so far. Awesome display. Excellent UI. Only downfall is the lack of screen protectors ????.

    Best phone in its price class!


    - Excellent camera. (Bit disappointed in the panorama feature)
    - Good battery life.
    - Very good screen.


    - Difficult to find accessories.

    Note: The MIUI 8 update is coming on the 16-08-2016 that is going to add a lot of features and is going to make the phone a lot better than it is now.

    Great quality smartphone, especially for the price. Everyone I meet wants to sell their Iphone/Galaxy S6/7 and buy one

    Few weeks in and i can't of anything less than amazing. The HD display is clear. Speed is not a question. The camera is better than Samsung J5 even if it's the same 13MP. The cloud sync is a bonus plus MIUI 8 has dual app function meaning 2 Whatsapp, FB, Twitter ... accounts on one phone. Work and personal life separated. I have managed to spend 1.5 days without recharge. Look on YouTube and see how it stands against high end devices like Iphone6, Galaxy S6 the list goes on. Enough said.
