Xiaomi have opted to HD+ display rathe than full hd so that it will be consuming less amount of battery.

3080mah battery. Which should be good for optimum average user. If you are heavy user then you may miss redmi note5 pro battery
of 4000Mah.As both phones are of similar size.

Dual rear camera setup which becomes pretty commn factor in all the mobiles. Rear secondary camera supports Portrait mode.

4/64gb with a hybrid nano simcard which can also be used as Memory card slot.

Though the price is not official yet but we expect the below price tag for the device in India.

  • Rs.9999 for 3/32Gb variant.
  • Rs.11,999 for 4/64Gb variant.

What could have been  better in Redmi Y2:

Xioami is trying to give budget mobile users a taste of mid range smart phone with its 6 inch screen and dual camera specification. The device is great for a budget phone, below is the only one worrying point which we feel.

  • 720p Resolution which is not a full HD and for 6 inch screen, we may see ppi will be very less which results in bigger size of icons.

Apart from the resolution,  we really believe that this is a perfect budget device. if you do not want to spend more on Redmi note 5 pro, you can definitely consider this option.

For mid range buyers if you want to know how different is this ine from Redmi note 5 pro , here it is.

Redmi Y2 vs Redmi note 5 pro:

Here are some of the key differences between Redmi S2 vs Redmi note 5 pre. Please note that the screen resolution is something which we have to double confirm again, as 720p screen resolution is average one.

Verdict:

Users are confused to buy between the similar models from Xiaomi which is creating competition for its own models. But Redmi Y2 is claimed as The company’s best selfie redmi phone by Xiaomi itself.

Asus Zenphone Max pro threats Redmi note 5 with a competitve price but this will be a reply to Asus from Xiaomi. But instead of battery which Asus sports 5000 mAh Xiaomi concetrated on Camera. Dual camera in a budget segment is a great option as Asus users feel heavy battery is taking long time to charge even with fast charging.

We really feel redmi Y2 is one of the best in the budget range for selfie lovers. But if camera isn’t a primary focus and if u want a better battery with better screen resolution Asus Zenphone Max pro may be the right choice for you.
