The Redmi Note 2 is, in my opinion, a mid-range phone, with flagship features. I love the idea of the PDAF and also Sunlight Display. When I held the phone for the first time, it is lighter than I expected. There is a feature on the MIUI 7 that is good. When you increase the size of the font, it is able to adjust so that it is still readable. Some phones just crop away the sentences.
