Just updated to miui 9.2 global stable rom. The difference under the hood from miui 8 is clear. The phone is faster and more battery efficient. Xiaomi take care of their users through UI updates even though they dont change android versions much.
Redmi 2 is really a faithful phone. Two years and still a functioning phone.

I'm using this device since 2015 until now still a loyal user of this brand. My experience was great!!! Drop to the ground more than 20 times(all ground types). This device were really capable in term of build quality. My set was global rom and never ever hang! Specs wise, all were good enough and nothing to complain about because the price below 100 dolar. About the heating issue, for me this was normal. We use an electronic device same like laptop, of course heating issue will occured. Although i dropped it more than 20 times nothing happen to my beloved redmi 2. No screen crack, battery n back cover didn't move a bit, mobile still on and working perfect. That's the reason why xiaomi redmi 2 was GREAT!

Very good and durable phone. I bought this phone in june 2015 and still use it until now. Plan to upgrade to redmi 5 but still not available in my country.

Camera is clear, screen is beautiful, sound powerful.
If you are in budget, buy xioami phone. But if you have money buy samsung and iphone

This phone surprised me. Considering its hardware I was not expecting much from it. I installed custom ROMS on it which made it even more of a joy to use. Its a great budget phone.

Oh, pls. MIUI is really overrated. Xiaomi's phones themselves are good phones w/ cheap price, that I admit. I own Redmi 2 8gb since its launching more than 2 years ago. Decent chipset, enough for daily use, not for gamers and I'm not one. Great camera, decent display with poor sunlight legibility. Decent battery, lasting half a day for moderate use, but I own power bank, so it's no biggie. Great speaker and sound quality. The only fatal flaw is miui. Everything about miui is great tbh, except its multitasking. My gosh, most of the time I hold an app in background n go to home/another app even for just a moment, when I'm back opening it again it reloads/restarts.
And another fatal flaw of xiaomi phones, including Redmi 2 is HEAT. Sure during normal use - call, chat, browse - its temperature is still in comfortable zone, around 39-42 deg C. But for streaming long videos from browser/ a bit of light gaming/ recording video for only a few minutes, it starts being an uncomfortable 45 deg C and more. My place's temperature at noon is around 32-34 deg C for reference. If u live in cooler area, u might get away from Xiaomi's heating plague. My mom's old samsung phone's temperature is always top at 40 deg C, I never feel heat from that oldie. Maybe because nowadays phones use more powerful chipset, so they generate more heat? Who knows. I dunno about the "normal" phone's temperature nowadays, as I don't frequently change my phone, unless it's completely broken. But i still hold on my opinion, 45 deg C is already uncomfortable in my hand, and more uncomfortable on my ear during call.
