Reasons for buying Xiaomi Redmi 1s:
My first reason to consider buying Redmi 1s is its price.The mobile was expected at RS 6999 but now its officially available for RS.5999 via Flipkart in India.When comparing the specification of the mobile with its price, Xiaomi Redmi 1S would be the best android mobile for the price range of Rs.5999.
Corning Gorilla Glass:
Yes, Xiaomi Redmi 1s in India come with Corning Gorilla Glass 2.This makes the mobile display more crisp and clear.And now there is a less chance of scratches on Redmi 1s
update: Sadly the Redmi 1S version in India does not come with Corning Gorilla Glass.
8MP Auto focus camera:
Redmi 1s is the only mobile to have 8MP primary camera with Auto focus at the price range of Rs.5999.The mobile dominated his huge competitor Moto E here as Moto E has only 5MP fixed focus camera.The camera quality of Redmi 1s is so clear and colors look vibrant.It also has single LED flash and 1.6 MP front facing camera.
Processor and RAM:
Xiaomi Redmi 1S come with 1.6 GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM.Also, it has Adreno 305 GPU for playing higher end games.You could play some big games like Asphalt 8, NFS most wanted without any issues.
The mobile has the OTG support functionality to connect the pen drives with Redmi 1S.so storage won’t be a problem here as you can connect pen drives and store the data there.

Reasons for not buying Xiaomi Redmi 1s:
Fewer service centers:
Before buying any new Smartphone, we would surely check whether the company has enough of service centers in your location.As Xiaomi is newly launched smartphone it has only fewer service center as of now in India.So before buying Redmi 1S check whether you have service center in your location.But I don’t think it would be a major problem as Xiaomi is increasing its service centers in India.
Gets heated easily:
One of the problem I faced while using Redmi 1s it gets heated very easily.The mobile tends to heat up on an average gameplay, but it is quite common with all the smartphones.
Runs of Android jelly bean:
Xiaomi Redmi 1S runs on Android jelly bean oS whereas some of the budget Android mobiles at this price range comes with latest Kitkat 4.4 oS.But some of the sources says that Xiaomi Redmi 1S would get the latest KitKat 4.4 update very soon so this won’t be the major problem.
Apart from this I don’t feel any disadvantage with this mobile.If you are planning to buy any android mobile below 10000 then Xiaomi Redmi 1s would be the best option.
