Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, Smartphone, 4G LTE, 16 GB

The Redmi Note 2 is pretty basic in terms of appearance, with largely plain front and back. It's made almost entirely from plastic and is pretty thin, which keeps the weight down. The phone's vivid 5.5-inch, Full HD IPS screen predictably dominates its front, offering superb viewing angles and incredible clarity. A very thin bezel runs along the left and right sides of the screen, which ensures that it's not too wide to grip properly with a single hand.

The Redmi Note 2 is running Android 5.0.1, but under a heavily customized interface made by Xiaomi. Dubbed MIUI, it's now up to version 7 and is arguably one of the most refined Android skins out there. Furthermore, Xiaomi rolls out updates on a weekly basis which means new features are constantly being introduced, making MIUI feel like one of the most vibrant and active operating systems out there.

Powered by the Helio X10 MediaTek MT6795 64-bit octa-core chipset - the same hardware which is seen in HTC's One M9+ - the Redmi Note 2 is no slouch when it comes to processing grunt. It handled all of the HD video footage we threw at it and played 3D games without breaking into a sweat. 2GB of RAM helps to keep things nippy; 3GB would have put it on an even footing with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6, but because the Xiaomi has a lower-resolution screen, that additional 1GB isn't missed. In fact, in everyday use the Redmi Note 2 feels notably smoother and faster than Samsung's more powerful flagship.

The Redmi Note 2 comes with 32GB of internal storage, The phone's rear-facing 13 megapixel camera boasts phase detection auto-focus which means it can grab the shot you want faster than its rivals. The sensor is Samsung-made so the image quality is superb, and effortlessly outranks the shots produced by Google's Nexus 6, which is also much slower to achieve focus. Various custom shooting modes are included, and 1080p video recording is also on offer. The front-facing 5 megapixel camera is good for 720p video, too. The phone's 3060mAh battery is a roomy beast and allows you to get well over 24 hours of use out of a single charge without too much bother.
