    Got this dream phone from 9th September Sale — After using is for last 7/8 days,below is my review on the same…..!!

    Xiaomi is the new cool. Here is the reason-

    Design and Display- The build of the phone is appreciable. It has a compact design. The screen is protected by AGC Dragontrail Scratch Resistant Glass. However, the plastic on the back is a bit glossy and picks up fingerprints easily. Xiaomi has 3 capacitive touch screen buttons on the screen. The power and volume buttons are placed at the top right corner as usual. However, its quite heavy (weighing 158 gms). It has a 4.7 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen(312 ppi pixel density). Usually, this kind of resolution is found in 20K smartphones but now you can afford it easily. So overall, it has a premium and attractive look. the display is very good and the viewing angles are pretty descent.

    Battery Life- It comes with a Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery which is really nice if you consider the price. It lasts about a day after heavy usage. So, its a plus point

    Storage- It comes with 8GB of internal storage and microSD cards upto 64GB can be inserted if you run out of storage. So, not to worry about storage.

    Camera- It has a 8MP camera (3264 x 2448 pixels) with Autofocus, LED flash
    It also has a 1.6 MP secondary camera. I clicked a few photos and the picture quality was very crisp and clear. Great as expected from a 8MP camera.

    Software- It comes with Android 4.3 Jellybean and the interface is MIUI 5.0. The interface it totally different as compared on other phones. It is smart and unique. It gives a cleaner and nice look. the icons are large and customized well. So, I think you will love the MIUI interface as its different from the rest.

    Performance and RAM- On quantitative terms, it boosts a 1.6 GHz MSM8228 Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with Cortex-A7 core High Definition – The GPU is Adreno 305 for Image Processoror and 1GB RAM. The performance on this device was very smooth as expected from its specs. It delivered well in qualitative terms. Heavy games like Asphalt 8 run smooth like butter. For multitasking, 1GB RAM is great considering the price. You can easily switch between the apps without facing slowness or lag. So, overall performance is very descent on this phone.

    Pros and Cons related to the company or the phone are as follows

    Pros-
    Good Camera
    Stupendous performance
    Fantastic display
    Storage
    Descent battery life
    Lovable MIUI interface (It MIGHT be upgradable to Android 4.4 kitkat by end of the year 2014)
    Better Design
    Very very cheap price

    Cons-
    Heavy weight
    Customer service still catching up-not at par with others
    The company is new so there is a slight risk in buying as compared to other branded phones

    Verdict

    According to me, this is the best phone in the budget segment with everything and anything. However, the company is new to the field and we don’t know that for how long the devices last or performance sustains. If you trust the company and don’t have issues with the brand, or interface of the phone, you must buy it. At a price of Rs 5999 it is the best and the cheapest in the budget segment.

    Overall, considering all factors mentioned I give it a rating of 4.8 out of 5
