Despite only operating in Asia, Xiaomi are now the world’s third largest manufacturer of smartphones. The Redmi 2 is one of their budget handsets, priced at 699 Chinese Yuan – which is roughly £75. That said, if you are looking to get one you will pay a bit more as the devices can only be bought from a third-party retailer.
