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.

Julian, South Africa. 21 September 2017

Very neat unit, and delighted with it so far ( only had it for 10 days, so it may be a bit early to tell).
One small problem is the lack of a user manual, which makes it a bit difficult for techno-dinosaurs like me to learn how to use it.

Liseli, South Africa. 19 November 2016

Good quality phone for the price. No complaints here!

Bryan, South Africa. 14 March 2017

Have given 3 starts as real bang for the buck ITO specs.
Screen is good and camera really good!
BUT... if you are not a child and use multiple apps at the same time, this phone will not last long, as you WILL smash it against the wall! When you have a few apps running, every-single-time you switch apps, you will be subjected to the "Just a Sec" spinning circle... FOR A FULL FIVE SECONDS!!!!... EVERY TIME!!! I cannot describe how frustrating this becomes! Have had it for a month, tried the fixes I found online regarding memory optimization, but to no avail... So actually wasted my money, will give to daughter and buy a Huawei or Samsung.

Jordaen, South Africa. 24 April 2017

Great value for money

Philip, South Africa. 23 February 2017

Had one of these a couple of months now and would say it's probably the best value smart phone on the market at this time. It does everything well, neat, thin light weight, good screen size/brightness, good battery life. I can't find fault with it. And... 3 year warrantee! If you need more than 8Gb go for the 'Pro' model. A clear silicon case is a good cheap optional extra available on Takealot.

Johan, South Africa. 22 June 2017

This is a great phone. Would give it five stars but due to the memory issues this phone is so well known for I can't. Forget about receiving WhatsApp or Telegram messages in time, you can expect to receive them only when the phone lets go of the memory and sometimes have to clear it myself before receiving any messages. Otherwise good product for the price

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.

Trevor, South Africa. 14 December 2016
