Xiaomi Redmi Y1 review: An affordable phone but selfie enthusiasts might want to stay away from this one


The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 sticks to what has worked for the company in an attempt to up it a little bit by including a 16 MP selfie camera for selfie lovers.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 packs a lot of what we have seen in this year’s budget smartphones from the company. The Y1 sticks to most of what has worked for the company with an attempt to up the notch a little by including a 16 MP selfie camera.

Xiaomi Redmi Y1 32 GB Review


The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 is for people who like to click selfies on a budget and don't want to break the bank for good ones.

Best in class selfie camera ; Good display ; Decent performance

Plastic build ; Smaller battery

The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 is now the best phone for selfie lovers with a budget of under Rs. 10,000. It is a decent performer and has the same qualities we have seen on other Xiaomi phones. The only real compromise is in build quality.

Redmi Y1 review: Is this the new budget king from Xiaomi?


Xiaomi Redmi Y1 review: Redmi Y1's price is Rs 8,999 for the 3GB RAM variant and here's how the phone performed in our review.

As I’ve said, the main proposition point with Redmi Y1 is the big display, not the selfie camera. The selfie camera is strictly above average, nothing exceptional. Think of these phones, Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite as bigger versions of Redmi 4, though...
