INTRODUCTION

Xiaomi has seen one of the most enviable growth in the smartphone industry. The company grew so much that now it features in the world’s top five smartphone manufacturer. The major reason for the success was the Chinese market where the corporation saw exponential growth. The Xiaomi launched its ‘Redmi Pro 2’ smartphone in October 2015, and it went viral. So, let’s see what does this smartphone offers to its users.

DESIGN AND DISPLAY

Talking about the external dimensions of the phone, it has physical dimensions as 5.28 x 2.64 x 0.35 inches, which makes it an optimum sized smartphone. The phone weighs only 133 gm, thus making it very light weight. Regarding the colour variants of the phone, it comes in one colour variant i.e. Dark Gray. Talking about the display of this phone, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Pro features a 4.7 inches display that provides a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels that roughly translates to 312 pixels-per-inch pixel density. The display appears to be sharp enough so that the users does not notice the pixel at normal distance from the view. However, if one analyses the display carefully, they can easily notice the jagged edges of the pixels. However, for day to day use the display seems incredible.

PERFORMANCE AND CONFIGURATION

The phone is powered by a 1.2 GHz Cortex A53 Quad-core processor which has a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 chipset. The quad-processor makes sure that the smartphone experience is excellent, as the games and videos play without any interruptions. The smartphone offers 16GB of internal memory, which could be expanded up to 32GB using the microSD card slot provided in the phone. The phone runs on Android platform and works on Android version 4.4.4 i.e. KitKat. The 2GB RAM makes the interface user-friendly. The phone offers dual-SIM functionality and supports 4G/LTE networks, too.

CAMERA AND MULTIMEDIA

The phone features an 8 MP primary camera that is supported by a LED flashlight and a 2.0 MP front shooter. We have to say this phone takes pretty interesting snaps. The images captured by the phone are amazing, however, sometimes the images captured by the phone appear too artificial, as the colour gets boosted and overblown in the pictures. The low light photography doesn’t disappoint, and you can take some decent snaps in dim light conditions too. Talking about multimedia, the phone features a loudspeaker, 3.5mm audio jack with active noise cancellation and dedicated mic. The phone also features MP4/XviD /H.265 player, MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac player, Photo/video editor and a Document viewer.

BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY

The battery provided in the smartphone is a real workhorse. Having topped with a 2200 mAh Li-Po removable battery, this phone can work for more than an entire day with heavy usage. The phone also supports fast charging i.e. 30% in 30 min (Quick Charge 1.0). Talking about the sensors present in the smartphone, the phone boasts a host of sensors like accelerometer gyro, compass and proximity. The smartphone also has connectivity functions, such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot, Bluetooth version 2.1 with A2DP and LE, A-GPS, FDS and GLONASS, FM Radio and microUSB version 2.0.
