Coming to a conclusion we can tell that paying an extra Rs 1000/- would be a good deal to get an extra 1 Gig of RAM and double the storage space which would save your external memory card price. There are lots of development for both the devices and MIUI being an open source you can expect a lot of custom roms for it. You can either purchase Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime or Xiaomi Redmi 2. The choice is always yours.
