The Redmi 1S will go on sale again at 2PM today. There is an estimated 60,000 units that will be made available and about 3lakh users have already registered. The handset will be available on Flipkart for Rs. 5,999 along with a free screen guard and a micro SIM adapter.

This is also a good time to buy the handset especially if you have a visa debit card. Flipkart is offering 5% discount on minimum Rs. 5,000 transaction (on any transaction). The handset is for Rs. 5,999. The max discount is Rs. 1000.

As with the previous Xiaomi flash sales, to but the Redmi 1S you should have already registered. Most of you already know that Xiaomi will bring the Mi3 back in few weeks / months.

Let us know if you managed to get the Redmi 1S in your cart with the few seconds before it went out of stock, and if you have a visa debit card make sure you grab the 5% discount.

    1. Try another sim, and see if this will resolve ur problem otherwise u have got a faulty piece…. BTW this phone have the maximum problem but I dont know why some people are crazy to buy such mobile? My three friends have this mobile and all are very sad…..

  2. Hey my 1S showing miui update of 41.1 (stable) about 515mb…. But still I didn’t updated and my current and pre installed version is 36.0 (stable)… So anyone updated to this version, can any one tell something about performance and other thing after such updating ..???

  3. Does all redmi 1s unit facing camera or heating problem or the only gogi’s review unit facing. pls comment.

    1. I didn’t used camera of my redmi 1s much but yes cell heatsup in surfing n playing games like subway n temple run also

  4. I have Purchased one Redmi 1S yesterday but I am unaware of the Visa offer. I did net banking
    Paid Rs 300 extra :P:-p :p 😛

  5. Gogi any news when redmi get KitKat. I am facing heating issue, poor battery backup, and poor 3g network reception also lots of glitch during call(2g). Hope kitkat will fix this issue. If all the issues are fix then it’s world best budget phone.

    1. Thats a common complaint. I guess u can try replacing the charger. My gionee charger works like magic for other phones. Using htc as well. When i charge htc with gionee charger i do not face heating issue and also the battery lasts way longer. When i use any other charger, for htc, it heats up quickly and feels like it ll explode in few mins.

  7. I checked the flipkart page now it is mentioned they have a ‘Fabulous surprise’ next week, i guess its gonna be Redmi Note..

  8. Yippie….!!! Got one Redmi this time….Actually I tried last week but failed to get one…this time I was lucky… Feeling happy :)… I was confused between Android One and Redmi this time…If I had not got one today then i would have surely bought spice dream uno… 😉 !!! I doubt if I can buy one Redmi in next sale also from the same FK. Account ?? anyone have tried buying multiple Xiaomi from same account in different sale ??

    1. Yes, I ordered around 6-7 handsets using two accounts (for myself and my friends). Luckily I got handset everytime I tried.

  9. finally bought redmi 1s. Didnt see 5% off in the final payment even chose Visa debit card. Custmr Cre askd to wait till 2nd oct 7pm for resolution. Hope get back rs.300 amnt straight back to my debited A/c instead of flipkart wallet. Hmm

  10. Got one more mobile successfully, and it’s now mentioned the next sale is only on Oct-14.. No wonder they bringing 1lakh units for sale..

  11. I want to buy mobile and my budget is very low. I have added Redmi 1s in my cart.

    I am so much confuse bcoz of heating & yellowish issue.
    Need your suggetion.. gogi

    1. if you are heavy gamer then ignore this one otherwise don’t worry and buy this phone as i m using it ,,
      you need to be little careful with this handset thats all .

  12. i have registered earlier and then i ran out of stock??? why i didnt got it and i had registered this time also

    1. If you want to buy this phone :very easy go olx ,quiker,etc..Most of people(who have purchased it from flipkart) are selling it with 500 to 1000/- margin and i am sure after few weeks it will be available at half the price .I have checked in many discussions the phone is full of problems .
      The selling strategy of flikart is :………

  13. Only for them who misses it before, because i clicked the buynow but after 3 sec it shows out of stock, generally if u click buynow u get the phone.

  14. U hav to place order within 30mins of prior to booking i think dats a gd initiative taken by Mi & Flipkart to curb black marketing..

    1. I think they are going to bring Redmi note which will be Rs. 9999 with 13mp cam and 2 GB RAM with many more features thats why they have given less time place order. Thank God I tried today but didn’t managed to get because of slow net speed. Will wait for some more days and grab note.

  15. Those who want to buy Redmi 1S should remember this thing.

    “Customers who are able to successfully buy RedMi 1S during today’s sale
    must complete the payment by 2.30PM today”

        1. That just mentions total number of Mi4’s shipped from factory till date, nothing to do with India or any other country.

          1. I saw this mi4 phone selling in store in Tanzania cost in USD 330 black and white both colors without screen guard & cover.
