We feel Xiaomi could have done a bit better. It is nearly 150 grams, therefore a heavier side. The bezels surrounding the top and bottom side of the display could have been thinner, helping to reduce the overall size of the device. The another gripe I have is with the non-backlit touch-sensitive menu, home and back buttons. While the red coloured buttons on a black background is not an issue while operating in daylight but for new people it become difficult in the dark.

The Redmi 1S is not a bad looking phone and resembles the Xperia series from Sony. It’s slim (9.9mm) and narrow that can be used with one hand and has a nice matte grey finish at the back. As far as placements go, there’s a front-facing 1.6 megapixel camera, microUSB port and a mic at the bottom, 3.5mm headphone jack at the top, power and volume buttons on the right and an 8 megapixel autofocus camera at the back with an LED flash, loudspeaker and the second mic at the top back.

If anything we’ve learned from the Mi3, Xiaomi tends to give the best possible hardware at the price and Redmi 1S is no different. You’ll find a 4.7-inch IPS display with a resolution support of up to 1280×720 pixels (HD), which is generally unheard of at this price range. The display is decent with good amount of brightness, viewing angle and colour contrast. Xiaomi even allows to adjust the colour temperature and saturation with pre-configured options. Protecting the panel is Asahi’s Dragontrail glass. Dragontrail is an alternate solution to Corning’s Gorilla Glass and protects the display from scratches. However, what it cannot protect from are fingerprint smudges.


Powering the device is a Snapdragon 400 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 1GB RAM that run the MIUI OS. The processor and RAM combo won’t get any accolades for being speedy but it does offer satisfactory performance. The interface runs smooth but can turn jittery if you run and close a number of apps in a short amount of time.


There’s 8 GB internal memory of which about 6.14GB of internal storage available to the user but good thing about the Redmi 1S is that it comes with a microSD card slot. The phone also supports USB OTG, in case you want to copy data from a flash drive.


There’s an 8 megapixel camera on the Xiaomi Redmi 1s and it takes some good quality pictures. The noise is kept in check with good colour reproduction. On the video side, the phone can shoot in up to Full HD resolution, which is another plus in this price bracket.Xiaomi RedMi 1S (2)


The Redmi 1S supports dual-SIM and has a good call quality that is helped by the dual mic for noise reduction. The battery on the device is rated at 2000mAh and with a single SIM, the phone lasted for more than a day with Wi-Fi and around 14 hours with two SIMs and lots of calls.

Operating System

The MIUI OS is identical to the UI found in Apple’s iOS. It is based on Android 4.3 is largely unchanged from what we saw in the Mi3. You’ve got the same lock screen that gives quick access to music, calls, messages, camera or flashlight; private messaging; no app drawer; Themes support; call recorder; FM Radio; Compass; Torch, MiTalk and more. Xiaomi hasn’t confirmed as to when MIUI v6 i. e. KITKAT, it will be released but it should be soon.

Final Verdict

The Redmi 1S is not a high end device but at attractive price tag of just Rs. 5,999, it is the best smartphone one get. Huawei Honor Holly, which is priced at 6999, is a decent alternative with 16GB internal, 2MP front cam compared with 1.6 MP of RedMi 1S and with Android Kitkat. But Holly runs on MediaTek processor which is .3GHz less clocked than RedMi 1s and the basic sensors Compass, Gyroscope are absent in that. Moto E, Asus Zenfone 4 don’t stand a chance when you compare them with Redmi 1S.
