Xiaomi entered the Indian market last year with a series of devices which offered outstanding hardware specifications at very surprising low prices. The Xiaomi Redmi 2, the successor of last year's popular phone Redmi 1S is currently one of the best phones to buy in India under Rs 10,000 price tag and it is more polished and feature loaded than its predecessor. At a very reasonable price Redmi 2 offers a 720p HD display, 8.0-megapixel camera and a decent processor.
