Unique features
After the Redmi 2, Xiaomi has introduced the new Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime. The successor to the Redmi 2 comes with similar features except for the storage and RAM.

The devices carries a weight of mere133 grams which makes it comfortable to hold. The device measures 134 x 67 x 9mm.
Display & Camera
The latest offering from the Chinese manufacturer flaunts a 4.7-inch IPS HD (1280x720) display with decent viewing angles. Similar to its predecessor, the smartphone misses out on Gorilla Glass protection but has a fully laminated display for scratch resistance. The pixel density is good at 312 PPI. Being an LCD unit the sunlight legibility is not as great as Super AMOLED but works just fine. The imaging section also sees no change as the smartphone comes with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash that aids in low-light photography. To add more to your images, there are modes like face and smile detection, etc. On the front, there is a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter that supports high definition video recording.
Software & Performance
The device runs an outdated version of Android 4.4.4 KitKat, that is later upgradable to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.  Under the hood, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC containing four Cortex-A53 cores, and the graphics department is handled by Adreno 306 GPU. The Snapdragon chipset makes sure that the device performs at its optimum best. In terms of memory, the device is an upgrade as it comes with 2GB of RAM to help multitasking. It also has 16GB of onboard storage which is double than the Redmi 2 and can also be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.

The device is backed up by a 2,200 mAh Li-Po battery. The battery performance is good considering this is an entry level phone.

I think you have to get your phone formated, it may be because of corrupted software and this happened after android update.

Two slots like hybrid. Hybrid is nothing but a dual SIM option, you can use one SIM and one memory card or two SIM cards. But you can't use dual SIM and a memory card.

I can say that Redmi 2 Prime mobile is the best ever phone. I also have this phone and the processing speed is very fast as compared to other companies like Samsung, Gionee etc.

It's good.
I liked this phone very much. The only problem I am facing is the heating issue. The phone gets too hot, during charging and while using internet. The best thing is it never hangs or lags. The sound is awesome both on speakers as well as on headphones. The audio enhancer is just fabulous.

Amazon's Customer Care Service is worthless.
The main thing is that on 16/8/2015 (Sunday) I received SMS that Arriving Today: Your package with Mi Redmi 2 Prime (White) is out for delivery. Amount payable is INR6999.00. But I came to know that the courier remains closed on Sundays. So that is a false/baseless SMS. Next on Latest Update page it is written Out for delivery 3:42PM 16/8/2015 though the courier remains closed on Sundays. After that till date 18/8/2015 there is no update on Track Package page of my account on Amazon or customer care. Customer care answer is a stereo type saying we have forwarded it to our upper level. Now this mobile is out of stock everywhere. Should I go to consumer court? Please advice.
