Xiaomi Redmi Y2 review: A budget smartphone with great camera, battery life

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 Now Available Only In Redmi Y2 Authorised Dealer In Raipur – Idris Electronics Raipur

The Redmi Y2 looks identical to the Redmi Note 5 Pro, except that it has a tall and wide instance and metallic finish body. The front is dominated by a 5.99-inch 18:9 aspect ratio screen, which does not stretch from edge to edge, unlike other 18:9 aspect ratio smartphones. So, it leaves huge bezels around the screen. The screen is covered under a flat glass with no protection rating. However, it has a protruding plastic rim to reduce direct impact on the glass in the event of accidental drops.

The phone sports a 5.99-inch 18:9 aspect ratio screen of 1440 x 720 (HD+) resolution. The screen looks bright and has good viewing angles. However, the HD+ resolution on a mammoth 5.99-inch screen estate gives a pixelated appearance due to a limited pixel-per-inch count. The colour reproduction seems to be another weak spot, as the display shows washed-out colours, diminishing the phone’s utility for multimedia content playback – watching videos on YouTube, Amazon Prime Videos or Netflix, for example.

The Redmi Y2 gets a 12-megapixel primary sensor paired with a 5MP depth-sensing camera on the back, and a 16MP selfie camera on the front. Both the front and rear camera units are assisted by AI for semantic segmentation of object and background for portrait shots and the bokeh effect, along with an enhanced beauty mode.

The Redmi Y2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, paired with either 3GB or 4GB RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The phone boots Android Oreo 8.1.0 out of the box covered under the MIUI 9.5 custom theme.

A power-efficient processor, coupled with an HD+ resolution screen, helps the 3080 mAh battery sail through a day without any problem. Online video streaming, screen-on time and multiplayer gaming drains more battery but not so much as to pull the life under 10 hours – that is satisfactory, if not excellent.
