Xiaomi Redmi 2 unboxing, first impressions

My readers asked me for days on when I gonna have an unboxing and review of this newest Mi smartphone that was brought by Xiaomi Philippines. The wait is over.




Xiaomi Redmi 2 just arrived recently at my hub. These are the front and back portions of the Xiaomi Redmi 2 box. Take a closer look at the back of the box, a clear info on the number of the number of LTE bands that this device does not support Smart LTE (B1). The buzz was right when my one of my fellow tech bloggers who bought this device overseas a few months before it's Philippine release gave me an info about this. 


The front has 2 MP front camera, 4.7 inch IPS HD display and standard Android capacitive buttons in red. The back has a removable back cover with Mi logo, 8 MP AF main camera with flash and single speaker.


The top has 3.5 mm. audio jack while at the bottom, you can see the pin hole mic and micro USB port.


Nothing to expect at the left side as you can have the volume rocker and power/unlock button.


Unfortunately as this is a review unit, I only got a micro USB to USB cord and instructionals. The whole package itself also includes a 1 ampere USB plug (according to an official representing Xiaomi PH when I asked it). The other half of the picture is a sneak peek of the 2,200 mAh removable battery and underneath the back cover with 2 micro SIM slots and micro SD slot.

First impressions: I agree with international tech blogs and Youtube channels that Xiaomi Redmi 2 is lighter than the Redmi 1S. I like the texture of the back cover with that soft feeling. What I don't like so far is the simple rectangular shape of the micro USB port which might create some problems on those who will gonna have some mistakes in putting in the micro USB cord for data transfer or charging.

My readers are already aware of the previous reviews of this device from my fellow tech bloggers but they also want to know on what's my take on this device, something that is different. Well, watch out for my upcoming review as I might gonna uncover some mysteries of this newest budget smartphone from Xiaomi.
