2-minute Review [Positives] N/A
  • Premium build, and aesthetically done design - the Redmi Y2 looks like the love child of the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro
  • Nice, modern 5.99-inch screen with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio
  • Also has 'Face Unlock' which works reasonably well, and there is very little delay between the phone recognising your face and unlocking (understandably, the only time it struggled was in dark-ish environments, but at these times, you can always go back to using the fingerprint sensor or the good old passcode)
  • MIUI has been vastly improved over time, and is not as heavy as the previous versions - it is also one of the most refined, aesthetic Android UIs
  • Powering the Redmi Y2 is the solid, capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset (same as the Redmi Note 5) - and it ensures good performance in all but the most demanding use cases
  • The USP of the Redmi Y2 is of course the very good, AI-infused selfie camera, that also does Portrait mode - the results come out quite good, especially in good lighting conditions
  • The rear dual-camera setup (12-megapixel+5-megapixel), which too is AI-driven, is pretty decent too in good lighting conditions - in portrait mode, the camera is able to click photos with just the right amount of blurring
  • Good battery life - during regular use, the battery is good enough to sail through the day on a single charge
  • Decent charging speed (though there is no fast charging) - the battery can be charged from zero to 100 percent at a shade under two hours
  • On the whole, if you like clicking a lot of selfies, and sharing them on social media, the Redmi Y2 is the perfect smartphone in the budget range - you can think of it as a device with the camera of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the performance and efficiency of the Redmi Note 5, and the build and affordability of the lower end of the Redmi range - it is a worthy alternative especially to the Redmi Note 5 (the Redmi Note 5 has better battery life, and better screen resolution, but the Redmi Y2 has the better camera)

  • The display is good, but its resolution could have been higher
