To date, the Mi Note Pro is the most impressively spec’d phone in Xiaomi’s lineup, easily capable of competing in the same capacity as some of the notable smartphones in the space right now. From a specs sheet standpoint, the phone is formidable and is fully capable of garnering attention from those itching to get a high-end, high-spec’d phone.
One of its biggest attractions, beyond its rich specs sheet, is the fact that the phone can be bought on the cheap – we’re talking about $480 for this bad boy! Although it’s not something that can be pur... Full review
The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro is currently available in China for the equivalent of around $480, but that is the only market the device has launched in so far, and you will likely end up paying a hefty premium to import the device. It will also be wise to first check for LTE compatibility with your home networks, if you do decide to pick it up. Until the Mi Note Pro is officially available in other markets, opting for the other flagship devices may be the more viable option.
So there you have it for this in-depth look at the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro! Xiaomi claims that the Mi Note Pro is the... Full review
The Xiaomi Redmi 2 is one of the most affordable Android phones money can buy. Previously, such extremely affordable phones would come crippled significantly and lacking in features, but at first sight the Redmi 2 does no compromises: it has a fairly sharp, 4.7” display, the ubiquitous Snapdragon 410 mid-range system chip, and an 8-megapixel camera that shows promise.
However, there is a reason why this phone is not sold outside of Asia, and it’s the software. There is a lot to like about MIUI v6 that powers the Redmi 2 - its rich customization options with theme... Full review
The Redmi 2, despite the sluggish performance of its 1 GB RAM variant, finds itself above the rest of the flock, purely thanks to quality in design and the hardware-software combination. It’s clear that Mi devices are the primary vehicles for the Mi ecosystem, which will include devices more than just smartphones or tablets. For this reason, the Redmi 2 serves as the first point of entry. At Rs. 6,999, which is 1k higher than its predecessor, the Redmi 2 manages to be a budget device that can do it all, including 4G LTE, but to “do it all without lag”, the 2 GB RAM variant...

The Xiaomi Mi Pad succeeds at being the first interesting Android tablet to come along in a while now, mostly because of it’s combination of high-end specs and a very affordable price-tag. While Android on tablets isn’t as pleasant an experience as iOS on a new iPad, Xiaomi’s UI is nice enough, though most Android apps are still not really optimised for this resolution and aspect ratio.
But while that would make it hard to justify buying a really expensive Android tablet, like the Xperia Z4 tablet or the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2, the Xiaomi Mi Pad is priced so... Full review
Once again, Xiaomi has delivered a product that isn't perfect, but offers absolutely terrific value for money. In doing so, the company has also once again displaced every competitor around it. One of the biggest problems with this tablet is that no 3G/LTE version is available, which for many people will be a dealbreaker. Even for a few thousand rupees more, a variant with cellular data would be very welcome in our market.
For what it is, the Xiaomi Mi Pad is still a fantastic bargain. It works well as a portable entertainment unit and it's unobtrusive enough that you could just... Full review
The Xiaomi Redmi 2 replaces the Redmi 1S, one of the most popular phones of the past year, but at a higher price point. It is more polished in some ways but does not really raise the bar in terms of value for money. LTE is a huge feature, but has extremely limited relevance in India and is not something we would pay Rs. 1,000 more for at this point in time, given the choice. In that sense this phone is somewhat overshadowed by its predecessor.
Nobody with a Redmi 1S should need to feel any urge to upgrade. Those who want the best possible phone at this price point would do well t... Full review
