RedMi Note 2

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 has good quality 13MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture and phase detection autofocus which gives you really fast autofocus 0.1sec! Also the camera has nice feature like HDR and panorama mode. Of course manual correction the ISO and white balance is still available.
The front (selfie) camera is 5MP with f/2.0 aperture and it’s also good enough.

Currently the device is offering with two colors – Black and White. But we have assured that more colors will be available soon.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is using the new MIUI 7 with Android 5.1 and we can say that the UI response is smooth and flawless driven by 64bit Octa-core 2.0 (2.2) GHz CPU.

As the Note 2 has quad band network connectivity (GSM/GPRS/EDGE; UMTS/HSPA+; 4G LTE) it can be use anywhere in the world and the dual SIM is really helpful.
