Xiaomi’s Redmi 1S comes with great expectations because of its super affordable mid-range with a price tag of Rs 5,999, it also promises to shake up this market segment which is reserved for the very basic smartphones.

Design and build

We got the dark grey version of the phone and the plastic on the back is only slightly glossy, but it picks up fingerprints easily. Fingerprint smudges were also a problem when it came to the front of the phone, which features three red capacitive buttons and the LED notification light placed under the home button.


The rear camera of 8MP, with a flash , while the single slit for the speaker grille is closer to the right edge. This position doesn’t really help as much of the time we found our hands muffling the sound. You will not find a better camera than this one at this price range.
