Xiaomi Redmi S2 (Y2) review

22 June 2018
Every new Redmi has a seemingly impossible task - be a better bang for your buck than the previous one. And cheaper, or worst-case scenario - same price. If it were any other maker, it would have been a hard no can do. But not Xiaomi. It keeps doing it against the odds and here is the Redmi S2 to prove it.

Sort by:

A mobile phone, is less of a luxury and more of a necessity (Common Knowledge). Having used 3 Samsung, 1 Microsoft phone, switched on to Redmi Y2 in 2018, have been using it and have been to the workshop only once. This is the best phone so far, value is appropriate, built is good (I am a rough user, the delicate darlings don't survive) it has fallen multiple times, yet works without any flaw. No, complaints as such. Now the battery needs to be recharged multiple times as it has grown weak. A great phone, if I buy a new phone it will be a Redmi only. Thank you to the developer , creator, of Redmi. Great Going !!

                        I bought this phone 2 weeks ago and its good, the only problem I encounter as of the moment was the Wi-Fi connectivity.
                        I think I need to wait like about 3-5 minutes just to connect on Wi-Fi
