Xiaomi has not only launched Xiaomi Mi3, but has also announced that Redmi 1S and Redmi Note will also get available very soon. Redmi 1S may get available online at Flipkart in the month of August. Xiaomi Redmi 1S smartphone is going to be a strong competitor to Motorola’s Moto E and Asus Zenfone 4 A450CG. Redmi 1S will get available at the price of Rs 6,999 only. Now in this review post you’ll be able to know the features, specs and my verdict on this amazing Xiaomi smartphone Redmi 1S. Let me make you know the Xiaomi Redmi 1S features which will make it one of the best low budget smartphones.
Xiaomi Redmi 1S works on Custom Android 4.3 operating system called as MIUI v5. I hope that Xiaomi will provide Android 4.4 update for Redmi 1S in future. If you’re worrying about after sales service, then you should stop thinking about it. Xiaomi is setting up 36 service centers in different cities of India.
Redmi 1S comes with 4.7 inch display screen having resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It comes with pixel density of 312ppi. Display screen of Redmi 1S comes with Gorilla Glass 2 protection.
As the screen size and pixel density is better in comparison to Motorola Moto E and Asus Zenfone 4 A450, Xiaomi Redmi 1S may definitely get huge success in India.
Processor, RAM and Memory provided with Redmi 1S
It comes with powerful 1.6GHz Quad Core Snapdraogon 400 processor. Redmi 1S has been also provided with 1GB RAM which is similar to Moto E and Zenfone 5. Xiaomi Redmi 1S comes with internal memory of 8GB. Many low budget Android smartphones come with internal memory of 4GB only, and that’s why Redmi 1S is much better than many other low budget smartphones. Even microSD card slot is provided with Redmi 1S.
Redmi 1S comes with rear facing camera of 8 megapixel. Xiaomi has provided 1.6 megapixel camera in the front of this smartphone.

Verdict on Xiaomi Redmi 1S
It has got powerful processor, decent camera features and even the internal memory is good. If Redmi 1S provides good battery life, then Redmi 1S will definitely become the best option when it comes to buying an Android smartphone in the budget of Rs 7,000. I have seen that many people are worried about after sales support as Xiaomi is launching its smartphones for the first time in India. Once service centers of Xiaomi get set up in India, there should be no problem in getting after sales support. I may not wait for any reviews, and think about buying Xiaomi Redmi 1S as soon as possible.
