Xiaomi Redmi 1S is one of the worlds best selling phones


Xiaomi is quite a remarkable company. Within only four years they have managed to achieve things their competitors are still dreaming of. The once small start-up from China not only managed to create a huge world-wide community consisting of over 70 million people, they also managed to become the world’s 5th largest phone manufacturer. The key to success: Affordable phones featuring high-end specs and perfectly optimized software / hardware ecosystem, and of course their Redmi line-up, which enabled them to achieve several huge successes within the mid-range market.

Now Xiaomi have done it again: The Xiaomi Redmi 1S has become the world’s 4th best-selling phone. According to CST, the Xiaomi Redmi 1S is even being called the worlds most popular phone, going off sales volume alone. In India, Xiaomi’s most recent choice of expansion, the company sells around 40,000 units per week.

Will Xiaomi be able to continue making its way on this path of success? Hard to say for sure, but listening to current rumors they probably will, as the same are claiming a new Redmi phone to be in the works, featuring Mediatek’s MT6595 powerhouse, 3GB of RAM and a 20.7 mega pixel camera. If those rumors are true remains to be seen. We certainly have a little doubt, as such a phone would compete against another phone by Xiaomi, the Mi4.

    Well…

    Same hardware as an iPhone6 at 1/6 of the price.

    Now an entry level phone that was formerly high end… 2 years of smartphone evolution.

    An Apple still behind…

      same hardware? nope.
      even 5S beats some snap 800 phone

      • September 23, 2014

        Not even in your wettest dreams…

        Take a Snap800 on a 720p screen and will crush A7 chip.

        Anyway, a crappy-buggy dual core 64bit processor…running an OS as advanced as Android 2.2

    i would say its the worst product ever by xiomi.
    It should be sold as a mobile cooking device the way it gets hot.
    Kindly refer flipkart reviews about this plastic piece of $#!T

    Why nobody talks about the biggest problems of Hongmi 1s?Cpu Heat and Bad RAM Optimize, nobody talks about it in the articles.

    Hongmi 1 is very better in general.

    Xiaomi still not solved the Hongmi 1s problems.

      They actually released an update today to fix this specific issue.
