Get a Xiaomi Redmi2 Pro from Gearbest for Just $142.79


It’s certainly amazing, the quality of the phones coming from China these days, given the price of the unlocked devices. Here in the United States, a decent phone costs a minimum of $300. A flagship costs at least $600.

Today, Gearbest is selling the Xiaomi Redmi2 Pro for only $142.79.

The Xiaomi Redmi2 Pro uses the 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 processor. The device is currently running Android 4.4 KitKat, so when it gets updated to Lollipop, it will make full use of the 64 bit processor, meaning that a fast phone will become even faster.

The display is a 4.7″ HD IPS LCD. That display is powered by an Adreno 306 GPU. It’s important to note that many phones that are released with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 4xx processors ship with an Adreno 305, so this is going to have more power to push those pixels.

The pixel density of the display is 312 ppi. This is the same pixel density as many flagships that come in at around $500, such as the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. In fact, it’s just a few small pixels shy of Apple’s definition of Retina.

Then there’s the camera. The rear camera is 8 MP with an f/2.2 aperture. Personally, I find 8 MP to be the perfect camera size. Anything more than about 6 MP has to be scaled down to fit a 4K display, so you know you can’t tell the difference between that and anything more. Also, the resolution is low enough to provide larger pixels, allowing for better low light performance. Combine that with an f/2.2 aperture and you have a great camera.

That’s not all. The Xiaomi Redmi2 Pro comes with 16 GB of onboard storage and 2 GB of RAM. Of course, there is also microSD support. I often tell people that 2 GB of RAM is plenty. There are new flagships coming out with 3 or even 4 GB of RAM for a $700 phone, but it’s unnecessary.

Mobile operating systems are designed to only use memory for the app that’s in focus. It frees up memory when you have apps in the background. This is why 2 GB of RAM is plenty. There are still PCs sold with 2 GB RAM. For $142.79, this is an amazing phone.

Here in the United States, there are plenty of phones that you can get for this price, but nothing this well specced.
