First of all... I've received a product which has battery issue... From the day 1 onwards i have been facing this issue.. I've put for a replacement and the executive came to me and he also agreed there was a battery drain issue and after that when i contacted the amazon and asked when i am going to get a replacement for my product... They simply told that we got an update that your device is good.... Literally Amazon I've never expect anything like this from a well reputed site fooling with the customers... Now at this very moment i lost faith in your site.... My dear customers be careful while purchasing online....
Well as they say this is indeed the best phone in the price range of ₹25000. If budget permits then go for RealmeX2 Pro for ₹30000 or OnePlus 7T for ₹35000 or more and if it doesn't the go for Realme X2/Redmi K20 for ₹20000. But for the price of ₹25K you are getting: 6.4 inch Horizon Amoled Display (Crisp & Vivid) SD 855 Flagship Processor (Fast & Powerful) 48MP Sony 586 Primary Camera (True Snap) 13MP Ultra Wide Camera ( Truly Wide) 8MP Telephoto with 2X Zoom Accurate In-display finger print sensor Full screen No Noch display 20MP pop-up Selfie snapper 6/128 GB or 8/256 GB storage options What else one needs. Now as far as day to day performance is concerned it's absolutely fantastic. Day camera is brilliant and even night camera with flash takes really stunning photos. Display gives vibrant and punchy colours to enjoy your daily video content and game play. Bottom firing speaker is loud and crisp. Earpiece is sound is cristal clear and loud too. It's also supportsHDR10 and DRM Widevine L1. So just go for it without any doubts if your budget is ₹25K. Also it has no other competitors in that range.
Bought 2 months back as my samsung mobile was dead. Now suddenly K20 became blank screen and only vibration when i try to switch on. I bought this with acko insurance and paid premium. But to have it free pick and drop i need to provide mobile with imie code image etc. Now how can i do it when my own and only mobile is dead? Borrowed a mobile to raise this issue. I guess need to switch to iphone. Total waste of money.
Display: I just fall in love with this phone's amoled screen. I use my phone mostly for watching videos on youtube and binge watching on Amazon prime so I'm really happy with this phone's display. Viewing angles and deeper blacks in the display are amazing. If you a movie lover you willl fall in love with this phone. Apart from this the display is buttery smooth and responsive. 60hz display is still good as it consumes less battery. If you haven't used 90hz display is past then you won't gonna miss anything.
Performance: It's a beast when it comes to day to day usage. Ram management is great. There's no lag at all. Thanks to the UFS 2.0 storage, the app opening time is very less. The phone boot time is very less and can opened in just few seconds. Gaming performance is great there's no lag at all. You will love playing heavy games Asphalt 9, Call of duty and pubg on it. Phone's has all the sensors in it and picking up all the right spots. Processor is 855 Snapdragon which is the flagship and it won't disappoint you.
Battery life: I'm a power user so my phone's battery last for about 6-7 hours which is great. If you are a moderate user you can easily use it for about 1 day easily. There's a bit drop in battery performance with MIUI11.0.3 update but it has improved the overall Performance significantly and to be honest the drop is marginal about 4-5%. I wasn't that impressed with the fast charging via 18 watt charger supplied by Xiaomi with the phone. It takes around 1 hours 35 or 40 mins in fully charging the phone. Though the phone supports 27 watt fast charging and if a 27watt fast charger is used the battery can be charged in around 1 hour 15 mins or 20 mins. Moreove with that charger you can charger around 55% of your battery in just 30 mins. So it would be great if that charger was provided by Xiaomi. But keeping in mind the low cost of the phone it's still a great deal. Moreover, you can buy that 27 watt charger from mi store for just 1000 rs so my suggestion is to go for that charger and use the full potential of your phone.
Camera: I'm really impressed with rear camera of this phone. I have compared it with my friend's realme X2 pro phone and this phone is handsomely beating the rear camera of realme X2 pro. The only area where this camera needs improvement is night photography. Though selfie camera wasn't that great. I still think Xiaomi can improve the performance of front camera with a software update. Considering the great potrait shots, wide angle shots and zommed in shots captured by this phone i will give it 8/10. If i have to rate the rear camera only i will give it a 10/10 as this phone is a beast in daylight photography and can easily beat the few high-end expensive phones.
OS: I wasn't a big fan of MIUI but now the OS has improved significantly. This phone is running on latest android 10 with MIUI 11. I'm not seeing any ads in MIUI 11 which is great and this OS is highly customisable so I'm gonna give it a 9/10. I have deducted 1 star for few bloatware apps that can't be removed from the phone. But overall the MIUI 11 is smooth and gives you a tons of features which is really cool.
Call quality, network reception and wifi speed: I have to say that the network reception is excellent in this device which is the most important thing for me. The network reception in my house is prettty bad and most of the phone's failed in network connectivity but this one is a beast. It has a great network reception and the call quality of the the phone is just outstanding. The wifi speed you get in this device is unmatched and i am just loving it.
Audio quality: The audio quality of this phone is great you can listen to Hi Resolution audio songs with ease if you use a earphone that supports high resolution. I'm really happy with the audio quality and it is one of the best. Speaker volume is loud and clear. It has a single bottom firing speaker but it's not gonna disappoint you. I will give it a 10/10 in audio section.
So lets look at the overall ratings: Display : 10/10 Battery performance: 10/10 Fast charging: 8/10 Ram management: 10/10 Booting time : 10/10 Wifi speed: 10/10 Network reception: 10/10 Call quality: 10/10 Wifi speed: 10/10 Rear camera: 10/10 Selfie camera: 7/10 Video recording 8.5/10 Audio quality: 10/10
It's a value for money phone and I'm gonna give it a 10/10 in value for money section. I recommend you to go for 128 gb storgage and 6 gb ram variant as it will give you more value for money. The cost of 128 gb/6gb varient is 25000 and in deals you can easily get it at around 24000. Moreover, if you exchange an older cheap handset with this one you can significantly reduce the overall cost. I have exchanged my old device and bought this one for 18148 rs.
