The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 Lite is a decent performer, as it is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor which drives the system quite efficiently. You can play regular games on the phone quite easily, while the smooth performance of the device is also aided by a 2GB RAM.
The 5.5-inch display of the smartphone is quite praiseworthy, which offers a sharp and crisp HD resolution with good viewing angles. Moreover, it possesses a 2.5D curved glass and comes protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass to prevent against minor scratches.
Strong Battery backup
The battery backup of the device is an important element to look at while buying a smartphone. It should also be your priority, as at the end everything ends when your battery is dead. The Y1 Lite does not let you down in this section. It derives its required energy to stay alive for hours from a 3,080mAh battery.
Good primary camera
The device features a 13MP primary camera aided with an LED flash at the rear panel, which is good enough to produce sharp and high-quality images.
Lacks fingerprint sensor
The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 Lite does not feature a fingerprint sensor. These days, most of the smartphones are offered with a fingerprint scanner that is helpful for unlocking the device quickly.
Availability of better options
Though Xiaomi is well known for producing high-quality affordable devices, there are many other options available with better features within the price range. The front camera of the Redmi Y1 Lite is not so good as compared to its competitors.
Xiaomi Redmi Y1 Lite is an entry-level smartphone with necessary features on offer. The body of the device is ultra-thin and comes with a large display. In terms of performance, it is a quite decent device. Although, there are options available with fingerprint sensor in this price range, given the Xiaomi’s reputation of making quality products, it should be on top of the list in this budget.
