Remains worthy of consideration

from TrustedReviews

For £130, the Redmi S2 is a real steal. There are aspects that could be better – the screen is weak and the lack of USB Type-C support is downright puzzling – but it offers a decent level of processing power, excellent photographic capabilities, good stamina and up-to-date software, all wrapped in a moderately attractive package.
