Got it for just about 140USD online flash sale on a local e-commerce platform but it actually ships from China with global firmware. Recognized by Antutu and serial number is verified authentic in Xiaomi verification website page. The price-performance ratio for all the bells and whistles that came with it is actually very good. Satisfactory performance and quality on sounds and calls. Mobile signals, wireless connections, bluetooth, GPS and IR works well but the wireless FM still needs a headphone to be usable so it's not wireless at all. Display is also good for an IPS but nothing more to write home about. Got a system software update already after less than 24 hours of usage. Battery life and charging performance are within expected parameters.
My very first smartphone almost 7 years ago and it was a hand-me-down too! Small enough to fit in one hand. I had no expectations from it, so it worked quite well for me for another couple of years till the removable battery began to bloat and I had to move on to another phone. Low internal storage and even lower RAM than current generation budget phones. The display, camera, sounds, signals, connection and battery hardware performances were all just meh but it was alright for it's time on the budget entry category.
First and foremost, great battery life to last the entire day which can be further stretched to another day with a physical battery saver button on the side and it has fast charging support. The 32GB internal storage is average these days but the 2GB RAM I find lacking that I wished it was higher like 3GB. The CPU is OK providing responsive touch display interface and no lags until the measly 2GB RAM gets filled, auto-brightness sucks on the display though. The rear and front cameras are just OK and nothing to write home about. Fast fingerprint sensor on the home button but it broke down after less than a year of daily abuse. NFC works well. Good connectivity on mobile signals, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. Average sound performance on the speakers.
Lightweight full metal body and I can easily hold it in one hand. Really liked the Super AMOLED display. 3GB RAM is sufficient to my current and daily multitasking needs. Face unlock and the fingerprint sensor works well. Quick WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS connections and no problems encountered so far on mobile signals, radios, speakers and other sounds.
Got it less than 24 hours ago and I've been using for the entire day now. Lightweight, narrow bezels, latest Android...so far, average battery performance and endurance that last a day of moderate usage, tri-slot: dual sim+microSD, good price point. I'm no mobile gamer but I think it'll just do OK for mobile casual games but not resource intensive ones. Both cameras are decent under good lighting though definitely not for low light. There's a noticeable and annoying lag in both cameras in live view processing. Some GUIs overlays are also not optimized, some apps have cropped notification bars instead of scaling with the display, either it could be a problem with the apps themselves or the system itself. It seems to kill, freeze or don't update some of my fitness tracking apps in the background. No fingerprint sensor but face unlock works 90% of the time, even in low light as advertised. Average sound performance on speakers but good signals reception on mobile, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
Display and sound performance are average for the picky but they're good enough for the budget conscious. Software and UI performance are fast and responsive so far...until the 2GB RAM gets filled. Mobile, WiFi and Bluetooth signals are all OK. The dual rear and front cameras take good daytime photos but it gets worse in nighttime shooting. The dedicated micro sd card slot is a blessing since currently most Chinese budget phones would be hybrid slot (use sim 2 slot). Good battery life, it will last an entire day of moderate usage but no fast charging support which is a downer.
For the 2/16GB variant, go for the even cheaper Realme C1, except the front camera it has the same technical specs plus Gorilla Glass 3 display protection.
Got it for just around 60USD in an online flash sale! Both cameras takes decent pictures only in adequate lighting. Definitely not for heavy gaming but will do fine on basic tasks as the measly 2 GB RAM will close/freeze most apps in the background if they exceeded two at a time. Dual hybrid sim, no FM radio, fingerprint unlock is hit or miss most of the time but it's better than nothing. Battery will get you through the day on moderate use. Literal bang for the buck for the price point I got!
Bought it cheap and out of contract when a local carrier offered it at 25% off it's original release price, it's a steal! The 18:9 screen display is great for watching videos. At the given price point I got, the hardware performance i.e. CPU, RAM, internal storage, cameras and the battery were average at best but you can get by with them. The dedicated MicroSD slot was a plus for me as most of the current dual sim smartphone in budget ranges would be hybrid dual-sim slots.
Got it more than a year ago and it was an old smartphone even then. I've been using it as a basic backup phone and it has performed quite well. Android version is still stuck in Kitkat 4.4.4 but the MIUI was updated to Global 9.2 which provided some minor performance gains. Rear camera takes decent daylight pictures while the front camera is just average. The small capacity but removable battery lasts a day of light to moderate use in simple and basic tasks.
