Camera to say, the factory Sony, so it is quality assurance. A very good 8 megapixel camera with LED flash and autofocus, plus photos that can record video in high definition, can not ask for more. The photos will surprise, it seems they are made with a mobile.
And here are two great features that differentiate it from other phones cheap Chinese in its segment, which has 900 Mhz band (3G) and is compatible with GPS in Europe thanks to its Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor (unlike the old Mediatek) , you will catch satellites in seconds.

Red Rice Xiaomi 1S WCDMA personal opinion
Xiaomi has earned a great name in recent years, has gone from being an unknown brand to be among the best and most popular brands of Chinese phones. This is not for nothing that manufacture mobile upper-middle range, and high-end PRO range at very low prices compared to big brands we all know. This mobile I really like, within its price bracket is the best there is today. Sure there are better, but it will be 300 €.
