Consistent with the original Redmi, Xiaomi has decided to keep the design quite ordinary. Hence, one gets a dull-looking rectangular phone with rounded corners and a plastic rear. The Redmi Mi-2 greatly is similar to the original phone, to the extent of the position of the rear camera, volume and power buttons (located on the right side). However, Redmi 2 is slightly smaller when placed side by side.
The mobile is fuelled by a removable 2,200mAh battery, a microSD card slot and two 4G SIM slots sized for micro-SIMs. The battery is one-up in capacity compared to the Redmi (2,000mAh) which is necessitated by the fact that the Redmi Mi-2 runs on 4G LTE (instead of 3G only, like the Redmi).
Weighing at around 133 grams the phone is quite a burden in the hands, delivering a solid reassuring feel. The 4.7-inch IPS display is also bright and viewable even under bright sunlight and stays that way from every angle. The handset fields a 1,280×720-pixel display.
This phone runs on a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, the Redmi Mi-2 packs 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard memory and in addition, comes with a microSD card support for up to 32GB of extra storage. As aforementioned, the phone is enabled with 4G, and in particular LTE bands 3, 7 and 8 on the FDD LTE standard. This means the phone will be able to use 4G in markets such as UK and Australia but not in the US.
As far as the operating system is concerned, the phone is powered by Android 4.4 but runs Xiaomi’s own MIUI 6.0. While the user interface is based on the iOS, with apps located on the home screen, the drop-down notification menu is more closely related to Android and comes loaded with shortcuts that give you quick access to turning the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on and off and putting the phone in airplane mode, among other things.
