Xiaomi is a Chinese electronic technology company that was founded in China back in 2010. The company primarily manufactures a variety of electronic products, smartphones, tablets, earphones, and many other miscellaneous products, but they are most well known for their fantastic smartphones.
Besides their innovative products, Xiaomi's reputation is also well known for their unconventional business model: They sell all their electronic products without the use of a middle-man or distributor, it is all done directly on their official website. For new smartphones, they also liked to hold flash sales where a certain quantity of smartphones will be put up on their website at certain times.
Xiaomi has only two different lines of smartphones: The Mi flagship smartphones and the Redmi low-end to mid-range smartphones. The Mi flagship smartphones are those that pack a lot of interesting features and powerful specifications into the phone, whereas the Redmi smartphones offer simpler smartphones with slightly lower specifications. However, it should be noted that most Xiaomi smartphones are very affordable, even their expansive flagship smartphone lineup.
The Xiaomi Redmi smartphone line up has surprised many people many times. Each smartphone that is released under the Redmi line has always packed in way more value than the price they retail for. There are currently only two smartphones under the Xiaomi Redmi line, but each of the two have predecessors and successors that are still widely available for purchase:
- Redmi 1S
- Redmi 2
- Redmi 2 Pro
- Redmi 3
- Redmi Note
- Redmi Note
- Redmi Note 4G
- Redmi Note 2
- Redmi Note 3
The standard basic Redmi smartphone started off as a smaller device with only a 4.7" HD display, as well as a rather well performing Mediatek processor. However, as the device went on with its successors, the display went up to a slightly larger 5" HD display as well as packing in more powerful processors from Qualcomm. The internal storage space and RAM has also increased from the first Redmi: Rising from 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage to 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage.
The Redmi Note line on the other hand, are slightly larger smartphone starting at 5.5" display – as expected from a smartphone with the term "Note" in its name nowadays. Not only is the Note line larger in its display, it also has higher specifications in comparison to the Redmi. The Redmi Note 2 has a Mediatek Helio X10 processor, which is the very same processor that is found in other brands' flagship smarphones – which costs more than twice of the Redmi Note 2!
All Xiaomi smartphones run on the Android operating system, which is then overlaid with their own user interface, the MIUI (pronounced me-you-I, which is also intentional to show the connection between you and the smartphone). Xiaomi's MIUI is a user interface that is enhanced by over a hundred million users all over through their feedbacks and suggestions; literally giving the fans and users exactly the features that they want such as software optimization and a security center where you can control exactly every single detail about your smartphone.
Xiaomi smartphones are affordable and they are very high performance devices, the perfect choice for those who want maximum value in their smartphone purchase.
