Phablets are all the rage these days. After years spent reducing the size of cell phones to nearly nothing, we’re seeing quite the opposite with phone screens expanding significantly over the last few years. The new phrase “Phablet” was born to denote a device that is still, in fact, a phone but is closer in size to a tablet. Best of both worlds for some, the larger screen devices remain hot sellers across the board. People may have balked when Samsumg released the first Galaxy Note, but companies have been scrambling to catch up ever since the Note became a huge seller. As more phablets hit the market, deals and bargains start to emerge. You can find some great deals and coupons right now on the Xiaomi RedMi Note 2, so keep reading for some great deals from GearBest.
Xiaomi has had a bit of a tenuous start in the United States, but they’re starting to turn that around and make a push into the market. To that end, you can purchase some of their devices unlocked and use them on your mobile network of choice. Before we go too much farther, you will want to check the network frequency of your cellular provider to ensure that this phone will work on your network before purchasing. With all of that out of the way, let’s talk more about the Xiaomi RedMi Note 2!

As you may have noticed there are two versions of the RedMi Note 2 available: the Standard Edition with 16GB of storage and a 2.0ghz Octa-Core processor, and the Advanced Edition with 32GB of storage and a 2.2ghz processor. The specs are otherwise identical, and you’ll pay a few dollars more for the jump in storage space and processor speed.
The rest of the specs add up to a pretty decent looking device. The 5.5″ 1080P screen provides a large viewing area with a respectable 440 PPI.
