My Xiaomi RedMi S2 Unboxing, Hands-on Review & First-impressions video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Mh5GR3xOis

I’ve been using the Xiaomi RedMi S2 for more than a week, and I finally figured out why xiaomi introduced this smartphone, because if you saw the portrait pictures in the video.. do you believe that this device is only 150$ and also comes with 4K video with good EIS and a portrait mode for selfies with flash? Well, now you might do.. and you’re watching my full camera review of the Xiaomi RedMi S2 Smartphone.

    The wide angle shots are pretty impressive. I think the photo quality is good enough for sharing online as is. It's not easy to find time to perform photo editing

    No, it's not the best priced at the moment. Sony's XA1 dual is now cheaper that S2. Camera is better on XA1 dual speed is slightly better on XA1's Oreo than on S2, screen, signals and speakers are better. Indeed battery backup is slighlty lower on XA1 dual, but now XA1 dual is cheaper than S2 and I truly recommend it.

    hello Sir Martin!

    Is this video for real? Is this CHEAP phone that tough? Though in the drop test it was not dropped on cement:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_Zm_SNnKss

    It has no Gorilla Glass but it withstood being scratched! Is that true? Also, it has plastic body but seemed tough as well. Pls give me your opinion… I want real value for money, for one week I am choosing between S2 and 5+. S2 has two Nano SIMS and a dedicated microSD card, and better cameras. 5+ on the other hand has bigger battery and better build. I don't do games, just reading, texting, calling, surfing, watching videos, and I want cameras… And seeing that S2 is also durable, I might choose it over 5+. What do you think?

    Thanks!!
