Xiaomi has been making news ever since it was launched in India (Only the second country after China where Xiaomi is officially present). Xiaomi landed onto the Indian soil around 7 weeks back and has already created a lot of buzz around the smartphone market in India.

Xiaomi Redmi 1S is considered as one of the best entry level budget smartphones currently present in the market. That is one of the major reasons why the sales are getting over within a few seconds every time. Here in this list, I am compiling a list of the best reasons why you should buy Xiaomi Redmi 1S


Pricing is always one of the major concerns behind choosing a budget smartphone. Xiaomi Redmi 1S is available just for Rs 6000 (100$). At that price tag, Redmi 1S is surely a great steal and considering the specs loaded inside the smartphone, it becomes arguably the best bet.

Xiaomi Redmi 1S is priced at around half of Motorola Moto G and it has better camera with a powerful processor.

Beautifully designed

Xiaomi Redmi 1S is beautifully designed with a 4.7 inch size. The phone looks like a compact version of the Mi3, but the corners are a little more rounded in this case. The phone comes with rounded red colored buttons and a removable back cover which is not very frail.

The front view of the phone offers a greater feel with a 1.6 megapixel camera. The power button and volume control keys are as usual present on the right side of the device.

Display and Camera

Xiaomi Redmi 1S has a vibrant 720p HD IPS display which is protected by Asahi Dragontrail glass. Along with the display, there are 3 red colored buttons with capacitive touch to add a bit more to it.

At the display point, Redmi 1S performs pretty well as compared to the other rivals in this range, the screen resolution is pretty good too offering some great on screen performance.

The camera is surely a great one considering that the smartphone comes in as an entry level player. 8 Megapixel camera with LED flash is capable of taking some great shots even in considerably lower light.


This can be a good bet for the users who are fed up of the usual Android but still do not want to change the OS. Xiaomi phones come with a customized MiUi to make the user experience better which can be customized depending upon the needs. The MiUi version used in Redmi 1S is based on Android JellyBean 4.3 and offers custom icons, themes and inbuilt apps to make the experience better for the users.

Well, this list is never ending for a smartphone like Xiaomi Redmi 1S. If you are looking for a budget Android phone, this might just win the battle compared to the other phones in the same range. Let me know what you think.
