Xiaomi redmi 1s which was delivered on 11th october,2014 by flipkart(thanks to their service,that it came in One piece)
Xiaomi(pronounced as shaomi) is the best budget phone with the best configurations. This is my first step to smartphone, Android.
Cortex A7 1.6GHz Quad core CPU on Qualcomm MSM8228 snapdragon chipset which is completey based on ARM Architecture.It is combined with 1 GB RAM and Adreno GPU which can play high end games with high resolution.I played subway surfer which gave me around 20-30 playable frame rates without any lags.I have also played Cars,when compared to Apple iphone 4s,gameplay was much better in redmi 1s.
Camera is really good ,capable of capturing 8 MP HDR(High Dynamic Range) images and recording videos at 480p,720p,1080p @ 30FPS.Rear camera is 1.6 MP good for selfie in bright light.
This phone is good at playing 1080p videos,but as I tested it was not able to play 10-bit 1080p videos,as the data bandwidth required for 10-bit videos is much higher than normal 1080p 8-bit videos,so i was just getting audio output but only able to see the black screen.4k videos aren’t playable…………
It comes with Dirac sound technology, which is usually found in the cars like BMW, Rolls Royce ,Bentley,etc. As an adudiophile, I will not give 5 stars for this phone’s sound technology. But it isn’t bad compare to the smartphones in the same price range.

WHAT I CAME TO KNOW?
The ARM architecture is best which can manage all the multimedia features with its 4-core processor clocking at 1.6 GHz. Adreno GPU whose basic core was built on AMD Radeon Graphic architecture.Overclocking the processor will blow up the phone,so need for clock gating.when you connect the phone through data cable to the computer,it can use the internet connection of the computer.1GB Ram isn’t enough for the high end games like Asphalt Airborne 8.
so, what u expect from 5999/- phone, it gives u more than that in the same price point………….
