Answer by Ravalna** on 01st Jun, 2017
Uninstall unwanted applications and clear the RAM frequently. Use the inbuilt application to clear the unwanted junk and optimize the functioning of your phone.
Answer by Aswi** on 02nd Jun, 2017
1.Check your internal memory, if it is sufficient then restart your mobile. 2. If It's still not working, then go to the Mi service center.
Answer by Manjeet.s** on 15th May, 2017
I think you have to get your phone formated, it may be because of corrupted software and this happened after android update.
Answer by Prateek** on 08th Jan, 2018
I also faced the same problem. There is no solution for this; you have to replace the motherboard or buy a new handset.
Answer by Shivmangal** on 10th Aug, 2017
update your mobile or reset or go to camera application and clear all the data.

Xiaomi, a Chinese smartphone brand, took the Indian market by storm last year when it announced devices with stellar specifications at unbelievable prices. Although, many other brands, Chinese included, have entered the competition since, this has affected the sales of Xiaomi’s recent phones like the Mi 4, which was the worst hit. 

Having said that, with its latest phone, the Redmi 2 Prime, Xiaomi is ready to make a comeback of sorts. One ace that the brand has up its sleeve is the fact that the Redmi 2 Prime is manufactured exclusively in India, thereby squashing any perceptions that Chinese-made phones are of inferior quality. The Redmi 2 Prime has gotten bigger and better with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage space.

Let’s find out if Xiaomi’s attempts to win back the market with the Redmi 2 Prime are successful or not.
