Xiaomi Redmi Note 2: A SuperB Android Device













The likes of Infinix.Tecno and Gionee really need to be watchful as Chinese mobile making upstart Xiaomi is gunning to steal Samsung’s thunder by launching a pair of phablet smartphones on the same day Samsung is due to unbox phablet-sized updates to its Galaxy Note and Galaxy S6 Edge devices — with Samsung press events taking place later today in New York and London.

So much for ‘quiet’ August tech launches…


- MTK Helio X10 Processor, Octa-core 64-bit, A53 architecture CPU
- 2GB RAM,16GB/ 32GB Memory
- 152mm x 76mm x 8.25mm,160g, 3060 mAh Battery
- 5.5 " full HD, 1920x1080 resolution
- 13MP Samsung/ OV PDAF Autofucus, 5MP Front Camera
- 3060mAh removable battery + Quick Charge 2.0
- 4G Dual SIM
- MIUI 7 based on Android 5.0



Xiaomi took time to post Antutu scores of the Redmi Note 2 compared to those of rival phones. Xiaomi claim an Antutu score of 54,042 for the Redmi Note 2 in comparison to 47,032 on the Huawei P8 and 49,144 for the Meizu MX5.

Rumours about the display were true. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 has a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display which also features the same HDR sunlight technology as the Xiaomi Mi4i to improve viewing in direct sunlight.

Camera specifications are impressive for the budget phone too. The rear camera being a 13 mega-pixel CMOS sensor from Samsung and the front a 5 mega-pixel OV model. What is really shocking though is the inclusion of PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) on the Redmi Note 2! This could be the most affordable phone with the super fast auto focus feature!

Xiaomi have also included an IR remote control use at home with your TV, air conditioner etc.




Xiaomi will be offering 5 colour options of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 which include white, blue, yellow, pink and mint green. Additional covers will be available on sale at just .... NGN. The Redmi Note 2’s dimensions are 152 x 76 x 8.25mm and it weight 160g.



BUY Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 @ http://www.kulimart.com/xiaomi-redmi-note-2


International expansion is certainly a key priority for the company this year as it looks to hit ambitious sales targets. For now, Samsung has to contend with Xiaomi lording it over China’s mobile market — a kingpin position Samsung used to occupy. Analyst IDC pegged Xiaomi as the world’s third largest smartphone maker last fall — behind Samsung and Apple.

The two new Xiaomi smartphones, which come in a range of pastel colors as well as black or white, will go on sale online starting in China on August 16.


Here’s a quick rundown of the specs:

The Redmi Note 2 comes with a 2.0GHz MediaTek (MTK) Helio X10 processor, 16GB storage and 2GB RAM. While the Redmi Note 2 Prime has a 2.2GHz chip, 32GB storage and 2GB RAM. Both have a 5.5-inch full-HD display, 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera.

There’s a 3060mAh removable battery apiece, and both also have a microSD card slot for memory expansion — features which Samsung used to offer as standard on its flagships but removed for its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge handsets back in March, in favor of a sleeker-looking design (to better compete with the iPhone).

Xiaomi is clearly looking to capitalize on this shift by continuing to give users the things Samsung has taken away.


Also today Xiaomi unveiled an update to its Android skin, showing off the forthcoming MIUI 7 update, which it said will launch globally on August 19 — in another event taking place in New Delhi, India.

It said the update brings improved performance and battery-saving tweaks, as well as expanding the personalization options available to users with “colorful themes”.


There’s also a auto-organizing new face recognition feature in MIUI 7’s Gallery which identifies individuals in the user’s photo and groups images together — so you can presumably get a feed of every selfie you ever took. Which doesn’t sound at all scary…

While Xiaomi often stands out for its highly price-competitive hardware, company co-founder and CEO Lei Jun emphasized its focus on software, noting that the MIUI R&grin team is now “750-strong”, and the interface has passed 150 million users in more than 156 countries and regions.

Xiaomi added that its two new phablets will ship with MIUI 6, but will receive the new MIUI 7 update “at a later date”.

In a final device announcement today, Xiaomi unveiled a new PCB smart router, called the Mi Wi-Fi nano, priced at RMB 79 (~$12). The company sells a pretty eclectic range of hardware these days, including an air purifier, various wearables, smart TVs, routers and Wi-Fi hotspots, as well as its range of smartphones and tablets.

It’s not quite up there with Samsung’s massive electronic sprawl yet, but the ambition to dislodge the Korean giant’s grip on the consumer electronics market is clear.

Top 5 Best Selfie Smartphones

One of the best advantages of using a good quality smartphones all link to the camera,taking a clear and vivid selfie is one of the most useful parts on a smartphone but it all goes down on the type of device been used for the selfie. I will list the TOP 5 smartphones for better selfie.

While Sony started the selfie smartphone trend by adding a front-facing flash with its Xperia C, many have followed but few have been successful. And while Sony may have kick started the segment, they are not on the very top, but the recently announced Sony Xperia C5 Ultra may change all of that.

Indeed, we cannot wait till the Xperia C5 Ultra launches globally. So we have gone ahead, done our research and compiled a list of the five best selfie smartphones that you can buy today.

5. Nokia Lumia 730

At the bottom end we have the Nokia Lumia 730. While the sole purpose of this device is to click selfies, it does do a good job and produces sharp images.You can also shoot Full HD 30 fps videos using the front-facing unit, which is a rarity at this price tag. It does not come with a front-facing flash and includes a paltry 6.7 MP primary camera with an LED flash, that is pretty much in line with the Mi 4i.



4. Sony Xperia C4

While the original ‘selfie machine’ (Xperia C) is no more, the Sony Xperia C4 does a pretty credible job at keeping the Sony tradition alive. The C4 provides you with a capable front-facing 25mm wide angle 5 MP shooter with an LED flash and an equally good 13 MP primary camera. The focus is clearly on the front-facing unit and the Sony does a good job especially with Steady Shot now making an appearance on the front camera. What is impressive, are those built-in software gimmicks that users can utilize, while clicking selfies to tweak their images to perfection.



3. HTC Desire EYE

The HTC Desire EYE grabbed a lot of attention when it was announced all thanks to its large 13 MP sensor that sits not only on the back but also on the front. What accompanies this 13 MP sensor is also a dual-tone LED flash. So not only do you get great selfies, but you also get great selfies in any lighting condition whatsoever. Clearly the 13 MP unit on the back does not do any justice to the one on the front. Frankly speaking, HTC should have not even included it. And while the LED flash on the front is a plus point it is the implementation that seems to be the problem.







2. Samsung Galaxy S6/Galaxy S6 edge

While the Samsung Note 3 did produce Oscar worthy selfies, it was not all that great until Samsung decided to revamp its operations. Post this, we had a well made and well though off smartphone from Samsung called the Galaxy S6. It took Samsung two years to come up with something like this, but they sure did a great job on the imaging front (even though the sales expectations did not go too well). The 16 MP primary camera includes OIS and delivers great low-light shots, but the 5 MP sensor on the front with a f/1.9 aperture is equally impressive and even includes digital image stabilisation and real time HDR to make those selfies flawless.









1. LG G4

LG similar to Samsung has worked hard on the imaging capabilities of the G4. We were big fans of the LG G3, but it seems that LG’s extra efforts in building an extra special leather-clad device seems to have paid off. While we were impressed with the 16 MP primary module and its (three axis) OIS capabilities, the 8 MP front-facing unit simply blew us away. What it lacked however is the presence of the colour spectrum sensor on the front, which leads to white balance problems. Still then, the images it produces are nothing short of stunning, which makes for a great overall imaging package on a smartphone.

How to enjoy unlimited browsing free with etisalat on both android and PC

UPDATED * As at July 19th 2015.

To enjoy this you have to follow up with the latest information. 

=> Load your Etisalat SIM with N150
=> Subscribe for etisalat weekly Smartpak by dialing *343*5*6#

Note : it will last you longer than 2 weeks, thereafter scroll down to get the full settings. 

Am sure upon reading the headline unlimited FREE 
some of you would have jumped up with full excitement in your heart, well you read well thou ,and i know we all understand that limited tweaks on etisalat is mostly hard to come by not least unlimited browsing on same network, which in turn means what you are about to read as every probability of getting BLOCKED sooner than expected.


Buh then, having said this there's no crime in trying and enjoy it while it works. For some days now etisalat seems to have been browsing freely on Android likewise on PC,  at first i personally didn't believed it, not until a friend actually confirmed it works for a friend of his, thus he requested for the settings so i thought i should share for all.


Without wasting much of your time nor bore you with words, lets quickly go straight to how you too can be a part of this.
Mind you you'll be needing a particular VPN called PSIPHON HANDLER for Android: Download HERE *


Setting it up*
Configure your etisalat Access point thus:
apn: etisalat
leave ip and port empty
Now configure PSIPHON thus:
If you have the application, launch it or download above
*Tick remove port
*Proxy type select : real host
*Proxy server: mobile.facebook.com
===*Click save.
*Go to option and select any region of your choice
*tick tunnel whole device.
*Click more option and also tick “connect through http”  still on more option tick “use the following setting”
*host adress: 185.28.193.95
*port:8080
close and connect and you are good to go.


*****For PC Simple server Settings
Connect your modem using the etisalat default settings with no ip address and port or simply input 127.0.0.1 as IP and 8080 as port,  you can also share Hotspot via your phone to your pc.
Download the required application needed for pc HERE  called SS and Configure Your SS,  the file is in zip format, extract and send simple server to desktop, Open Simpleserver.ini  and set or edit the following parameters

LHOST = ‘127.0.0.1’
IMETHOD = 0
ISPLIT = 0
RHTTP = 0
