RedMi Note 2 Phablet review

Xiaomi-Redmi-Note-2

One of the best China’s smartphone maker Xiaomi unveiled an updated version of its popular and wallet-friendly XIAOMI RedMi Note 2 Phablet  which is supposed to rival Samsung ‘s Galaxy Note 5 phablet. XIAOMI RedMi Note 2 Phablet  is supposed to be the successor to the company’s first phablet, the RedMi Note. Just like its predecessor, it is 4G-capable dual-SIM phablet, but this version has far better specs, double RAM memory , double baline storage and much sharper display.

 

Design

First thing that impressed us at this phablet was the design. It is extremely close to that of its current flagship, the Mi 4. This means that the blocky feeling of the original RedMi Note phablet is gone. This gives the Redmi Note 2 phablet a high-end look, which may explain why it’s been referred to by company executives as its next flagship offering. Summary, the design of Xiaomi RedMi Note 2 phablet has a clean and symmetrical impression. The overall dimensions of the device are reduced while maintaining the same size of the display. The measures of Redmi Notes 2 phablet are: 152 x 76 x 8.25 mm and 160 grams of weight.

 

Display

The Redmi Note 2 phablet has a 5.5-inch full HD display at 1920 x 1080 resolution (440 pixels per inch, 400 PPI of density). This means that Redmi Note 2 phablet has a same size display as its predecessor, but it has much better resolution improving the 720p.  Also we can see improvements at the color accuracy and saturation and much sharper and wider angle of viewing(viewing angle up to 172 degrees).

 

Hardware

Speaking about the hardware the first thing that impressed us was the fast ARM Cortex-A53 MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795) processor, Octa-Core Frequency 2.0 GHz, supported by 2 GB of Ram, making this phablet super-fast, and for the amazing graphics in charge is the PowerVR G6200 GPU. The combination gives you a phablet that will run smoothly apps and games.
For the rear camera, Xiaomi decided to use Samsung’s 5 lences 13 MP camera, with F2.2 aperture, single led flash, auto focus, ultra fast 0.1 s focus speed, HDR, face/smile detection, can record up to 1080p.
The front facing camera is 5 MP with much wider angle, and it is able to record videos with impressive 720p resolution. As we already mentioned this phablet will be 4G dual sim and Wi-Fi 802.11.1/b/g/n/ac.
Storage of 16 GB is provided and users will be able to add more storage memory using a microSD card.
The other impressive component is the battery, 3060 mAh (offer up to 46 hours of music playback) and the quick charge 2.0 feature, which speeds up the charging up to 60% of the battery life in 30 minutes.

 

Software

The Redmi Note 2 phablet  runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, which is coated with Xiaomi’s MIUI 7 user interface. This mean you will be able to use all the new  interesting features and themes from Xiaomi.
