The most noticeable thing about the Redmi is its sleek and slender look. In fact, its design could best be described as minimalist. Although it has a lot of things going for it, the one thing I do not like about the phone is its screen size. It’s just not big enough to satisfy some avid mobile gadget users who want to have a larger screen phone.
While it is true that the Redmi has a beautiful body, that isn’t enough to impress anyone. You would want to have a phone that can hold up to your pocket size and also not hurt your pockets. Also, for some, there is nothing more important than having a smartphone with good battery life.
Xiaomi claims that the Redmi offers you three days of talk time, but I couldn’t test this claim. There are some who think that when it comes to smartphone functionality, 3 days is not enough, but honestly speaking, I found that the phone lasted for only 2 days. Although it got me through my daily commute, I believe that the battery life of the phone was just not enough. I think in the future, it would be great if they could improve this aspect of the Redmi.
A smartphone’s camera is always an important component for any user. A good camera will never fail to be a focal point of any mobile phone. However, the Redmi K30 has a decent camera. However, its image quality is not what you’d expect from the latest phones that are launching out these days.
Another thing I didn’t like about the Redmi is its interface. Xiaomi is claiming that it offers a custom built interface that allows users to easily find their desired apps without leaving the phone. But it is also true that the interface feels limited and almost useless compared to a better user interface.
One other thing that I don’t like about the Redmi is the fact that the software comes pre-installed. I don’t think this is very nice for the user. In fact, I think most users would prefer if the software is built in to the phone rather than installing it by the end user.
However, with all these issues, the only thing that I can say that the Redmi does well is the range of connectivity options it offers. You can connect to the internet using wifi, Bluetooth, and GPRS/ EDGE, which are quite impressive.
So, to conclude, the Xiaomi Redmi K30 could definitely fit into any person’s lifestyle. If you’re looking for a phone that’s light on your pocket and at the same time provides you the latest in technology, then this phone could be the one for you.
In the end, it’s the only phone that was able to satisfy all the things I look for in a smartphone. Now, if you will excuse me, I must head off to the nearest Mi Mall and order one!
