Why I Love the Redmi 1S from Xiaomi Philippines

Years back, you have to go through so many complicated stuff before having to communicate with your friends or relatives. I remember I had to "page" my message for Daddy (who's just at work) whenever I have questions or reminders. Had to dial a number and get connected to an operator before it reaches Dad's beeper! Messages are limited to only a certain number of characters, mind you. Hassle but cool na yun noon!

Then there came mobile phones! I remember I was in the 3rd grade when I first had my thick and heavy Moto with antenna - which can only send texts, place calls and play simple games! Super solved na nun! :p But people just can't settle for less! Fast forward to this generation, almost everyone owns a smartphone. New innovations are released every now and then. Apart from my two iPhones, I acquired my own Xiaomi Redmi 1S just recently! :)

Xiaomi Redmi 1S

Being an iOS user for quite some time now, I thought I'd never say hello to Android phones again. But I guess I'm slowly converting after trying out the Redmi 1S! :) Yup, it's that pretty!

Why do I love the Redmi 1S from Xiaomi Philippines? Here are a couple of reasons...

1. It's super affordable! I believe most of my readers are students and young professionals. And I'm sure PRICE is one of the first things you consider whenever you buy something. The Redmi 1S is only Php5,599.00!

2. Take flattering selfies and OOTDs! With Redmi 1S' 1.6 megapixel front camera, you're guaranteed to take clear, crisp and well-defined selfies. That's way better than other phones! :) Rear camera's 8-megapixel with flash, perfect for capturing Instagram-worthy snaps day and night.

Sample selfies! :p

3. USB On-The-Go. If I'll need to copy some photos from my Redmi 1S to laptop, the Redmi 1S has an expandable memory via microSD card. But aside from that, it also supports a feature called USB On-The-Go that lets me connect a flash drive to my phone! How awesome is that? :)

4. AGC Dragontrail scratch-resistant glass. When it comes to gadgets, I can get a little more OC and I make sure to keep them away from scratches! Happy to know that the Redmi 1S has a scratch-resistant glass, finished with matte exterior. Sleek! :)

5. MiUI User Interface. Most of my gadget geek friends have been raving about Redmi 1S' user interface, which looks like that of an iPhone's iOS. Some Android phones I've tried before were laggy and slow, but the Redmi 1S was SMOOTH, fast and clean! I'm so hooked! :)

6. It's the perfect Christmas present this year! For only Php5,599.00, the Redmi 1S is packed with extremely awesome features, a very good choice given its specs! Inside the eco-friendly box of the Redmi 1S are the USB cable and charger, but you can always check out Lazada for other accessories like ear phones, soft cases and back covers in different colors.
