Hi,Mi Fans
The successor of Redmi Y1, the first selfie-centric smartphone by Xiaomi has arrived in style. Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Y2 #FindYourSelfie with a 16MP AI selfie camera in India and the device comes with many improvements and  pretty brilliant specs. It has improved in design, processing, camera and many other aspects compared to the Redmi Y1 also at a competitive price tag. Without any further due, let's see what the media world has to say about Xiaomi's new selfie hero.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 Review
By NDTV Gadgets360

The Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is a better attempt at a selfie-focused smartphone than the model it replaces. It has proven hardware that is capable of delivering a smooth user experience, plus MIUI 9.5 which has a lot of added features. The camera performance is good in daylight. Selfies are the highlight of this smartphone and it does deliver on that front, with good shots in various lighting conditions. For its asking price, the Redmi Y2 could be a good choice if you prioritise selfies over everything else.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 Review: For the Gen Y

Xiaomi has been quite clear about the kind of audience it is targeting with the Redmi Y2. Having used the phone, I must say it succeeds in catering to their needs. If you like clicking a lot of selfies, and sharing them on social media, the Redmi Y2 is the perfect smartphone for you. At its price, it offers a good combination of performance and camera capabilities without forcing you to stretch your budget too much. 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.

Redmi Y2: Fuelling vanity at affordable prices
By The Hindu BusinessLine

We asked Xiaomi if this phone can cannibalise the Redmi Note 5 or the Note 5 Pro, given that it’s cheaper, but the company thinks the smartphone market in India has matured enough to pick a phone based on utility rather than just the price. And in this case the Y2 is an out and out selfie and camera offering, whereas the Note series phones are all-rounders. There’s also a 4 GB RAM version with 64 GB memory and Xiaomi’s got most things right, with this one.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 review: All things Xiaomi rolled into one
By Gadgets Now

There is no doubt that Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is a reasonably good phone for the price. It offers a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, Android Oreo based operating system, 16MP AI-based selfie camera -- all at a starting point of Rs 9,999. The camera, which is said to be the key highlight of the device, leaves a lot to be desired. For anyone who is buying Xiaomi for the first time, the Redmi Y2 will certainly check the right boxes. But for a repeat Xiaomi buyer, you may feel that these features are being pulled in from other Xiaomi handsets. Xiaomi seems to be following the mantra “If it ain't broke, don't fix it,” which is working pretty well for the company.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 review: The best all-round camera phone under Rs 10,000
By India Today

The Redmi Y2 can still hold its ground, courtesy the best all-round camera phone package under Rs 10,000 that it is. It' looks premium, is a capable performer, has the latest software (from Xiaomi), and also it is fairly long-lasting. If you're someone who's out in the market, especially looking for such a package, the Redmi Y2 is the phone to buy.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 review: Jack of all, ace at selfies
By Deccan Chronicle

The Redmi Y2 is a huge leap forward from its previous generation. Xiaomi has enhanced the areas where the previous phone nailed it and ironed out those where it fell short of expectations — build and aesthetics. In fact, the Redmi Y2 comes across as one of the few smartphones in Xiaomi’s lineup that aces some of their bestselling smartphones when it comes to desirable aesthetics. Add to that an impressive pair of cameras, good battery life and reasonable performance, and you end up with a smartphone that is a decent all-rounder to use as a daily driver.

Clearly, the Redmi Y2 provides a lot of value but we feel that it needs a little more performance optimization. On a camera front, it caters well to the selfie-loving crowd. If you’re not a part of that audience though, the Redmi Note 5 generally performs a little better despite the same internals. Unless you specifically need a high-resolution front-facing camera, we’d highly recommend spending a little more and going in for the Redmi Note 5 or better still, the Pro.

Xiaomi Redmi Y2 review: jack of all, master of one
By 91mobiles

For the price, the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is an excellent bang for the buck device which offers solid performance, good battery life, and a stunning selfie camera. Now, if you don’t prefer the smartphone’s HD+ display, then I’ll suggest you opt for the Redmi Note 5 (review) instead, which also retails for a similar price albeit comes with a sharper display and a bigger battery. Everything considered, Xiaomi has yet again upped the ante for the competition in the budget segment with the Redmi Y2.
