Are you thinking of buying Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime? Well.. We don’t suggest you to go for it.. Here are some of the Reasons not to buy Redmi Note Prime!

As you might have heard of the news today, Xiaomi has announced its new smartphone naming it Redmi Note Prime. This is coming in a very budget friendly price of Rs.8,499.



Xiaomi had turned the Indian smartphone market of companies making a way for attractive and affordable phones for the common people. But Xiaomi these days are not much keen about their interests.

Don’t you think like that?

Well.. It may be just for me.

Reasons not to buy Redmi Note Prime

#1. Take A Closer LOOK

Have you seen close enough of this device specifications? If not, could you now count the no of cores this processor is having.


You will find that it is having an quad core processor. But..It may not make any sense to you, cause you don’t know why I asked you to count this.

If you could dig deeper into the olden phone Xiaomi had created, taking the case of Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, you could now count the processor having 8 cores making it an octa core processor. Redmi note 2 runs on Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, while Redmi Note Prime is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon  410, quad-core 1.2GHz processor.

I know what you are thinking now. You might be thinking, “This Redmi Note 2 is way more costlier than Redmi Note Prime“.

That is exactly what I expected. But I will help you solve that issue at the end.. So now keep reading the post.

I can’t completely be sure that Redmi Note Prime is having a lower end processor, but still it lacks some extra cores.

This becomes one of the reasons not to buy Redmi Note Prime.

#2. Close peep into PIXELS

Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime comes with a 5.5inch HD display..wait what? Just HD display? Well.. 720p display, is that all of what you have got Xiaomi?

720p display in a world like today should end, there is not point of making a budget friendly smartphone with 720p.


Even the Redmi Note 2 is having a 1080p display.. Then why not Redmi Note Prime? Err…

Some of the budget friendly devices having full HD display screen are Mi 4i, Lenovo K3 Note and so on..

I dont think its good to argue about display screen cause, its doesn’t make lots of difference in the phone’s appearance.


#3. Time for an Update to LOLLIPOP

Ohh no.. Not again Xiaomi is forgetting to release an update for this Redmi Note Prime.

Currently it runs on Android 4.4 KitKat. Xiaomi had released few of its old phone with lollipop, but what’s happening to Xiaomi now? Are they leaving India? #KickMiIndia

It’s disappointing for the users of India not getting an opportunity to buy a budget Xiaomi device with Android lollipop.

It’s been really with huge frustration that Mi users had prompted Mi India to gain their attention in getting Lollipop updates for all of our Xiaomi phones. But .. It’s a bad luck as always..

So.. Just expect only performance and feature tweak updates and not Android update to next level.

** Redmi Note 2 REAL PRICE**

I love shopping online especially from Aliexpress and many other Chinese websites. They provide phone’s that are not available at some place, especially for people in India.

If you are from India, then you could check out the listing on Aliexpress, which has Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 priced at only $128 (INR 8,500 – 9,000)

Excited..? or not.?



Aliexpress Link:

Why am telling you about this? Its because I don’t want you to spend your money for a product that doesn’t suite the price.

Redmi note 2 is the perfect phone you could buy at the same price of that of Redmi Note Prime. Is it not?
