When Xiaomi finally released their Redmi y1 focusing on front facing camera than rear facing camera was this a good move by Xiaomi? So let's discuss it. Let's start with its pros the Xiaomi y1 will recieve it's MiUi 9 update in November, and sports a 5.5 inch HD (720×1280 pixels) with gorilla glass. It is powerful by an octa core Snapdragon processor 435 SoC and finally it's front facing camera with 16 megapixels with LED flash which is a great deal in day light camera performance. But the cons are that the Snapdragon 435 which is low range processor is not that good in good graphic gaming, but only good in multitasking. But still when it comes to multitasking the phone only has 3 GB of ram which is not sufficient for multitasking in today's time, then the battery life is a disaster it is not at all good and at last the grainy front camera output isn't good. Overall the phone is good but still with some lags.
